Jump to (and Always Support) the Bottom

    1. Lmao @ always support the bottom… that thing has gone a long way.

      Voted 1, 2, 7, 27 and 28 based on what I’d actually wear.

    2. Hodor!

      What, no design with ‘support the bottom’? or did I miss one?

      (edited) Oh I just saw it, but you can barely read the lettering. Pity.

    3. Fienix:
      Damn, too many good choices.Any chance the other 4 that make it into the top 5 will also be offered?

      Ooo, great question. I’d buy all my Top 5 picks, tell you the truth. I’m such a fan of #33 but I’m loving the Raven looking down on the banners (#40). Pretty much sums up the whole concept of the Raven “watching” all of the happenings of the Houses/Realm.

    4. Hmm, why is there no design featuring the picture on top of the post the post? That one would abe awesome – white on black or grey preferably.

    5. RandomGoTfan,

      We are inquiring as to how many of the designs we can make available in the store. We would like to put as many options in as possible.

      dee,

      That submission was designed by the graphics department at SomethingInked. If there is enough interest, it will be made available as well.

    6. I agree…that was my favorite

    7. 1, 6, 12, 16, and 28 based on what I’d be most inclined to wear. 6 would be my absolute top choice were it offered in a colour other than white.

    8. some of these designs are really great, but I’m not in love with the SomethingInked system as it seems like the majority of these ended up really high on the shirts… is there a way to get them more vertically centered?

      kind of nitpicky, i know, but it’s the sort of thing, for me, that would be the difference between saying “hey, cool shirts” and actually buying one.

        Quote  Reply

    9. Amazing work all around! It was difficult to narrow it down. Ultimately, I voted for 1, 8, 25, 32, and 35, but I would buy pretty much any of these designs if they were selected for production.

      Watchers on the Wall,

      I’m interested. The design featuring the distressed raven at the top of the post is extremely striking. I would definitely buy a shirt with that logo, in addition to whatever design is chosen from among the reader submissions.

        Quote  Reply

    10. That was difficult. They are all so clever. I chose 7, 12, 19, 30 and 34, although if I chose again it might be completely different. In narrowing the selection, I decided to avoid specific characters in the show, but I always smile at the “first comment to Hodor” precedent that has been set by the site participants, so that one had to get a vote.

      I agree with this. I liked some of them, but then I felt like narrowing down this website (and its “logo”) to a specific house or character seemed to go against the general purpose of the website (all inclusive GoT news). Side note…while I may have a fascination with number 33…shout out to everyone who submitted a design and especially to those who actually hand drew a design. Hand-drawing things takes a lot of time and effort, so shout out to all those individuals.

    12. #23 would be my first choice, but would prefer white on black rather than black on white. Also like #8, #14 (but on something other than that blue), #27 & #32.

      I hope #32 & #33 don’t cancel each other out, the design is solid but it may miss out due to the vote being split between the two colour options.

      Might have been better to vote on the design only to avoid splits, as there are several designs that fall into this trap, & then vote on colour schemes afterwards!

    13. I really like some of these designs.

      I wish mine had made it in, but since I couldn’t get it so the words in the design showed up large enough anyone could tell what they were, I’m guessing whoever said they’d put it in the design program and submit it couldn’t either. Ah well, I appreciate the thought they’d try to help.

      I, too, love the one which goes with the article.

    14. Nymeria Warrior Queen,
      Afternoon missus *waves*. Mine didn’t make the final cut either and ditto, couldn’t get it to work in the tshirt design site, so we can be rejects together! 😉

      Some really good work here, well done guys. I am in love with the cartoon dragons, the sheep’s face is priceless. Would be great to offer more than one if possible as they are so different in style, or perhaps have some as badge, mug, keyring etc designs instead? Some might suit being on a smaller scale better and, of course, not everyone likes tshirts or has the budget for them, whereas other things would presumably be cheaper.

    15. #7 and #16 for me.
      I too did not see the “support the bottom” until I read through some comments. I would like to see that one withe the words a tad more legible.
      Someone else also mentioned that the print alignment seems a tad high and off-set somehow. That is also a nit picky thing with me and if there is a way to center it up more then it should all be perfect. 🙂
      Amazing job designers!

        Quote  Reply

    16. What about the “watchers on the wall” over the distressed-wings-outstretched-raven graphic from the top of this page? That’s the best image, imo.
      Then again, I will never wear a shirt with a quote or a paragraph of text on it….
      That said, I’ll find one to buy from the winners-(simple is best! -take the black 2, wotw1, or always support- please at least one of these 🙂

        Quote  Reply

    17. I have to admit that they are all really great. I’ve picked 5, but I could easily pick another 5. I also really like the one that goes with the article.

      2, 4, 17, 24 and 40 were the ones I went with, but the choice is so much better than I thought it might be, because they’re all so good!!

      /internethighfive thanks! 😀 which one is yours? I have to look through all of them (and the comments) later when I get home to my PC. Hard to view them all on the phone at work *continues pretending to work* >_>

      //internethighfives back
      It’s the truth! I was hoping for a design about Mormont’s crow, I was so happy when I saw it! EDIT: whaaat you made also the #hairwatch one?? 2/2 then, wow!
      You’ll see when you’ll have them on a bigger screen, there are so many good entries <3
      ( And mine are #9 and #16 :'D )

      Much interest in SomethingInked design!

      ALL of the designs are fun. Thanks to everyone who submitted. I now have my Christmas list sorted. 🙂

    22. As a book reader, I like #7 and think it’s well done, but it’s purely a book reference. A particular Unsullied person had to ask me what that t-shirt was about, and that might be an issue, considering how many Unsullied readers how we have.

      So many great designs, it’s hard to choose! We’re blessed with the difficult task of deciding amongst lots of good designs.

    23. Awww Sue, #7 is my favorite, it’s a bit obscure, I love that.
      Also picked #10, 17, 35 and had to do it, #34. LOL

      It’s amazing how the choices are all over the place. LOL

      I wanted to do a back design that said “watchers on the wall” with the regular website font for 7 but I didn’t see a “front/back” option when designing it. Didn’t even occur to me to submit a SEPARATE back design. Too late now I guess. 🙁

    25. #7 is by far my favourite… I really like #38 and #10 as well, although I wouldn’t feel right wearing that “Shame” T-shirt…

        Quote  Reply

    26. I voted 3, 7, 16, 29, and 40

      As a book reader I love 7. Maybe too obscure for the unsullied but I want it though.

      I would wear any of these shirts.

      Corn because the ravens are truly the stars of the books
      Fewer because it always brings a slight smirk
      All I got was this T-shirt because that’s what we all wind up with
      1994 date because this is when it became public
      Ravens know everything because that is the truth.

        Quote  Reply

    28. Well done 7 is my fave by far. I’m glad lots of people are voting for it so there’s a good chance I will be wearing it soon. If I saw 10 (shame) i would buy it very cool!

        Quote  Reply

    29. ## 3, 8, 12, 33, 35. My personal preference is for the more “classic” printing of “Watchers on the Wall.” While I appreciate the inside joke of #7, I want the first question asked of me by a non- or casual GoTer to be “What is ‘Watchers on the Wall'”?

        Quote  Reply

    30. I, too, prefer classic and understated (which kept me from voting for #35 btw–yellow? Would have preferred grey.). I voted: 8, 15, 18, 30. Wouldn’t wear any others, so I only voted for four choices; although I do like the design at the top of the post–maybe just on the left breast of a v-neck? Any chance for v-necks?
      Those suggesting a correction to the “centering”: remember that t-shirts are meant to be tucked in, so centering it vertically would cause the design to disappear into the top of your pants. [cue off-color joke from Rygar…3…2…1…]

        Quote  Reply

    31. I really enjoy Watchers Raven #3-5. Although, I voted for Corn and Weirwood as well. Altogether its a really great bunch of designs! Minus Olly of course… I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing that shirt.

        Quote  Reply

    32. They are all great!

      I voted for five which I’d wear, #3 is my favorite but I would also like the design on the top of this page! Why is it not there??

        Quote  Reply

    33. HODOR! 😀 Could mean anything, right?

      in my opinion those shirts should be black… so the white ones are not really my favourites. However: awesome work, folks!

        Quote  Reply

    34. *red face* I voted for two of my own submissions. But looking at all the others, I am so impressed with the creativity and artwork. It wasn’t hard to find three favorites.

      Good luck to everyone who joined in the fun.

    35. Jillybean,
      I submitted one with “Always support the bottom” in small print along the bottom hem on the back, but it didn’t make the cut 🙁 thought it might make a fun badge tho’ 🙂

        Quote  Reply

    36. Great work. This community is pretty talented! I voted for some based on the quote, some based on design and some because it simply reminds me of WotW. Fewer, the cartoon dragons, Hodor, Swing the Sword quote, Take the Black wall One design. Pretty cool.
