Over the last few weeks, FontStruct intern Lorenz Fidel Huchthausen AKA Tylo has been busy designing and testing some great new FontStruct T-Shirts. Here he is sporting the “T-FX 361331” design which showcases the wonderful “fs I Square” by minimum. We thought it would make sense to offer some merchandise which showed off the talent of FontStruct designers, to compliment the existing products based on the FontStruct logo.
All money raised by merchandise sales will go directly towards the development and maintenance of FontStruct – so buying a T-shirt or a bag is a great way to enhance your wardrobe and support the site.
Here are some pictures of the new tees.

We now offer a choice of two online shops. There’s http://fontstruct.spreadshirt.com based in North America with prices in dollars, and http://fontstruct.spreadshirt.net based in Europe with prices in Euros. The products offered, the pricing and the shipping costs will differ. Normally users in the Americas and Asia are advised to visit the North American shop, while those in Europe should visit the European one. A full list of shipping destinations and shipping costs can be found here (for the North American shop) and here (for Europe).
We’ve also introduced a simple product coding system, mainly to allow users to differentiate between the different printing techniques used for the merchandise. Products are coded like this:
(type of product)-(printing method) (font id-number)
All the merchandise is printed, sold and shipped using Spreadshirt. Here’s some information about their printing techniques:
Flex (FX) is a printing technique where the design is cut from a colored foil and then pressed onto the shirt under high heat. Flex printing is suitable for vector graphics and the results are extremely durable. The colors are strong and saturated colors and shapes have sharp edges.
Digital Direct (DD) is a real print with the design sprayed directly onto the apparel, so the contours can be a bit blurry in comparison to Flex and Flock. Colors are softer and will fade more quickly than other techniques but some people (including myself) may like this effect. One advantage of digital direct is that it allows us to print fine lines and small text.
Flock (FK) is also a foil like Flex, but it has got a velvety surface.
