    what the hell is an .eps file???

  • Charlie

    I’m looking forward to getting one of these, but what about this of us on the west coast that wish we could attend the event but can’t? Don’t leave us out. At least I can buy one, maybe give out certificates for some free stuff to androidforums premium members that can’t attend in person?

  • Rob Jackson

    @Charlie we’ll try to keep a stash of these so we can hold various contests and giveaways and stuff using the Tees. Stay tuned. This won’t be the last opportunity to get the T-Shirts I promise you that!

  • son

    I think you can use photoshop to open eps file

  • Patrick
  • elijahblake

    well, that sucks.. i’ll have to do that from home.. I’ve got Gimp 2 here @ work. so what about an xcf file

  • larrythebarry

    i’m kind of surprised you’re not accepting illustrator files…

  • Rob Jackson

    You can save an illustrator file as an EPS ;)

  • reje75

    You can also save gimp files as eps, In fact I think most non-paintbrush level tools allow you to save as eps.

  • Eddie Android

    And this is where my 2 semesters of Digital Media Arts come in Handy! I’m gonna enter tonight.

  • Android

    It seems good contest. I don’t join but waiting to get one T-SHIRT if it will selling.

  • Droids_over_iPoop
  • Cha lee

    Hey can you downsave the file to CS 3? Or even easier just make it a .pdf then anyone can easily view it and open it.

  • Andrew

    You’ll need a whole lot more than 2 semesters here, Eddie! I’m entering this too!

  • amreet

    hi sir i m amreet lookin 4 a cool shirt.

  • Jared

    You say be creative with the logo, does that mean we can alter the logo in anyway? Or do you want to logo to look just as it does all over the site and in the link posted.

  • TedFourSeventeen

    Woop!… you don’t have to be 18 or older to join the contest! :D…

  • Al

    so when are these guys going to update the site? Where are the fresh news?

  • Jake

    I can’t do artwork all that great, but I can print shirts lol. but maybe i should give it a shot.

  • Jubbs

    Come on Phandroid, give those of us who are to poor to have PhotoShop a chance to enter. Please post up a hi-res version of the logo in another format (.png, .gif, .pdn) PLEASE!?

  • Joe

    Why all the fuss about formatting? .eps is the preferred vector format, and .psd is the best raster format, so they can tweak your layers a bit when the colors come out looking nasty on the shirts. It’s not that hard to understand. For those of you using Gimp, just submit a hi res 300 dpi .tiff, which is of course, when you win the competition.

  • Johnny Tsunami

    Sent my Entry in glad i have CS3, makes things so much easier.

  • Nearly

    Entered for fun :D Goodluck everyone.

  • CalypsoArt

    .eps is the graphics standard format equivalent to pdf in the document world. Almost every real illustration or photo manipulation program will import/export .eps.

  • Casbah

    EPS=Encapsulated Postscript and is what CalypsoArt said. :)

  • Custom T-shirt Design

    I definitely like the idea.
    I would also like to invite you to our website, where you can order any kind of promotional t-shirts. Our great tool is available for precise estimation of the number of stitches, and thus, the price.
