Some of you have received your swag packages. Grats!

I just want to stress that, when you wash your gamedev.se t-shirt, PLEASE make sure you turn it inside out, use cold water and non-bleach detergent. We used digital printing on the black T, so it requires extra care.

We have received a few reports from our gaming.se community that the design faded after one wash.(which isn't normal, since my gaming shirt looks fine after many washes). Anyway, just want to bring this to your attention.

  • \$\begingroup\$ There was also a small note inside the thank-you letter, about washing the shirt inside-out. I guess people don't read manuals or instruction sheets. :) Btw, the shirts are great, very comfortable fabric. \$\endgroup\$ – Cyclops Sep 21 '11 at 12:46
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Jin, it was a really good idea to put the small items into a plastic bag. My envelop was heavily damaged and had a large whole at the side. So the inner bag prevent the things from falling out. Luckily the content was unharmed. \$\endgroup\$ – Hendrik Brummermann Sep 21 '11 at 17:37
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Jin, could you define cold as a temperature range? \$\endgroup\$ – aaaaaaaaaaaa Sep 25 '11 at 9:57
  • \$\begingroup\$ @eBusiness as long as it's not on hot or warm then it's OK. I know different washer brands' actual temperature settings may vary \$\endgroup\$ – Jin Sep 25 '11 at 17:32

    \$\begingroup\$ @Jin I am familiar with neither the term 'hot' nor 'warm'. I can convert from those strange American temperatures, but not from ambiguous words. So far all I know is that 40 deg Celsius is too warm. \$\endgroup\$ – aaaaaaaaaaaa Sep 25 '11 at 17:48
  • \$\begingroup\$ @eBusiness I think tap water temperature is what "cold" setting in on my washer, I estimate it's about 18-22 C. \$\endgroup\$ – Jin Sep 26 '11 at 12:25

    \$\begingroup\$ @eBusiness A 30° wash is a cold wash. Damn I can't believe I'm posting this on GameDev... \$\endgroup\$ – Jonathan Connell Oct 9 '11 at 9:00
  • \$\begingroup\$ Or you could just not wash it and leave it in its pristine original state. \$\endgroup\$ – Jonathan Dickinson Jan 7 '12 at 11:00
