How does this whole thing work, anyways?
There a couple reasons for this post, first to check out just how the blogging system/community on here works and the second is to ask a couple questions, for those who would be so kind to answer.
First question, (which may seem presumptuous but is a concern of mine none the less) is when and if a design is chosen to be printed, how much time is there between you being notified and the printing of the design? The reason I ask is because my design has a day left of scoring and I'll be out of town and possibly away from a computer when new shirt's come out on Monday. Are we talking days here? Another week? I mean I assume you find out before the Monday it's printed because there has to be production time, and they have to need a bigger version of your design than the crummy preview gif, heh.
Second question, why is the preferred format of a submitted vector design .swf? Why submit an animation file when you could just send in an illustrator file or something? I'm not saying there isn't a valid reason, just that it seems odd at face value.
At any rate, if you're reading this thanks a lot and if you respond thanks even more. Good wishes to everyone out there in t-shirt land.
