- Cool SRAM Powerlink T-Shirt
Its a free font BTW
Is it free, or free for non-commercial use?
I’m not dissing the product or praising it either. I don’t care for it much one way or the other. I don’t think I’m being overly serious either. I’m just trying to stop you getting your fingers burnt by making sure you’re aware of all this stuff. It is an overly serious world, even if we’re not.Posted 10 years ago
The licence for most “free” fonts doesn’t cover commercial use. You are basically using an unlicenced image (not sure if you ‘shopping it a bit gives you the right to claim it as your own, but I doubt it), with an unlicenced font, to make a commercial product.
Re the design, each to their own, but IMO it’s drab and industrial, and the slogan is trying too hard to be clever. What do you want us to say?
I designed a T-shirt a while back, to promote the volunteer group I run. I used original artwork, not because I thought it would be better, just because breaching someone’s copyright on a product that’s basically meant to be displayed in public isn’t the most sensible idea.
Although some people roundly panned my art skills, I didn’t take that as a cue to tell them what defective human beings they were. Most of them sold wihtin a few months but I’ve still got a couple left if anyone wants one.

So what is your take on the fonts supplied with most programs like word, os OS’s like microfost – are tehy free for non-commercial use?
Nope your right – free for personal use – oh well looks like I broke all the rules with this one then – back to drawing board.

I think you are taking this too personally – I was just saying that most people criticise on STW TBPO – I think I was having a slight moan at todays society inc some STW posters.
Thats fine you commented on my design and gave me your opinion – my point was even if people (probe rare I know) did like it they are probably less likely to post it than ones who don’t as negative emmotions are often stronger then positive ones IMHO – i.e. people like to moadn and bitch more than going onto a forum to praise> Maybe I am jaded and wrong but have a look though many STW posts?Posted 10 years ago
My take on typography is that using free truetype rubbish makes your product look insanely cheap, nasty and amateur. So if you want to use something proper like helvetica rather than microsoft’s abortion job arial you better be willing to stump up for it and never ever do anything prepress in word, becuase its shit.
OK that was quite grumpy and serious, apologies.Posted 10 years ago
I think the ‘Powerlink’ to me is very important – I use SRAM chains all teh time d.t. this fact – so easy to remove- clean, mount new cvhains and will sort you out on a long trip if ya chain snaps – I dislike Shimano chains for that veryfact – that was where I was comming from – and using it (i.e. easy to disconnect a chain) to mean chill out or get some time out on life? Obviously only I got it ?Posted 10 years ago
Err, you can use SRAM powerlinks on Shimano 9sp chains.
I had heard that but tried it on a recent chain and the pin on the powerlink didn’t fit thought the hole? ???
I’ll need to buy some new chains soon as used my last PC790 – interestingly it was 0ver .75 stretch after 5 months – cheers for that.
Shimano Dura Ace-XTR Chain 9 Speed 7701? As not paying £35 for a chain!Posted 10 years ago
