FREE DTA Nano Suppressor / Minigun T-shirt Design Contest

Post by James DeGroat » Sat Jul 23, 2011 5:01 pm

Hello Everyone,

It's time for DTA to have a Minigun t-shirt and I need your help.

Design us a really cool Minigun t-shirt that can be screen printed in either one or two colors.

What should be included on the t-shirt:

DTA Logo (see below)
Company Name "DeGroat Tactical Armaments, LLC."
Web Address "www.ArmamentSales.com"
A really nice image of a Minigun that be screen printed
Shirt design can also be one sided or front and back.
Interesting quotes or says can also be included on the shirt.

The goal here is to design a very cool Minigun shirt that everyone would love but also includes our company branding on it.

Minigun images can be found on our facebook page, but other non copyrighted Minigun images are also acceptable. For those that have a really good design, but need a cert view/angle of the Minigun to perfect everything, I'm willing to take new pictures for you. If you see a photo on our facebook page that you need in high res, let me know and I'll e-mail a copy of the photo over ASAP.

Check out our facebook page and while you're there "LIKE" us as well.

http://www.facebook.com/DeGroatTactical

Photos of your t-shirt designs will need to be posted on our facebook page or e-mailed to me to be posted.

Try not to copy other peoples designs, but the goal again is to have the coolest Minigun shirt design so if you think you can out do a design, go for it.

Design Contest will end August 1st at 1am Mountain time (but could possibly be extended)

The person with the winning desing will receive a DeGroat Tactical Armaments, LLC. Nano suppressor free of chage (winner is responsible for all taxes and transfer fees).

:lol:

This again....I cant wait till you pull the "everyone wins" scheme again. "Ill give everyone of the finalists a discount on my suppressors" So you get new designs and you still get sales, you've already done this before. Why dont you spend more time designing a suppressor thats NOT loud instead of worrying about Tshirts.

Just use the crossed miniguns logo with the skull wearing the beret that I made for your webpage during your last "contest". Its more than adequate and you can keep the damn nano. :mrgreen:

Remember these? My submissions from the last contest...pretty much what you need. Just use those and be done with it, back to R&D.

Yeah, I think you can go ahead and declare Jason the winner. Just look at the T-shirts and other merch he did for AAC.

Can't wait to see what he comes up with!

Maybe he could conduct a poll on this first, before simply jumping into doing more R&D versus producing Tshirts. :D

Fireman, last contest was not for a t-shirt design, it was for a unique design for my company name and one was never picked.

This is my first ever t-shirt contest.

Main reason for this is I want a nice minigun shirt and well needless to say I'm not an artist.

I look forward to everyone's designs.

That's being a serious dick right there. Check his website, none of the submissions from the previous contest are used.

It was out of generosity and being a gentleman that he chose to hand out concession prizes for the previous contest. Most people didn't even bother to read what he was wanting. For example, that crossed mini-guns and skull thing you did. He wanted new typography for his site name, not a new logo. Your design was not a valid entry for the contest.

I know I sound snarky, but I don't like it when someone goes after a manufacturer who went out of their way to be nice to people even when none of the submissions to a contest met the standards.

I did website fonts as well, but that's not the point. Saying everyone is a winner and then making the prize a discount on your silencers that you do every year anyway is slimey. I really don't care about winning either one it just pissed me off that he used it to generate sales. :?

I have to ask, if it bugs you so much why do you take me up on the offer each time? :?

Your Mk 9 Mod 0 you got at very nice discounted price and later you were offered another nice discount and you wanted me to pass the deal along to a friend of yours to help him get started in suppressors, and being the nice guy that I am I did and he got a Mk 99 Mod 0. If I recall I think you even tried pushing two deals together to get a free suppressor from me.

I think the issue here is that you haven't been picked as a grand prize winner yet and it bugs you.

You've entered every contest I've ever had, but now you tell me you don't like them or my products. I do find that funny as you always try to win something from me by entering the contest.

If it makes you feel better Adam I never had any plans to offer any discounted prices on the Nano suppressors from this contest.

Post by Fireman1291 » Sat Jul 30, 2011 8:48 pm

I never tried to combine deals....so don't know where you got that. I guess I was left with a sour taste in my mouth from my mk9mod0 with the botched serial number. I was told "o well, it's discounted" and yes I passed the "deal" to my friend because I didn't want to fork out over $300 for a can I didn't need. I could care less if I'm not the winner, yeah it's nice to win things but if I want something I'll save up and buy it, end of story. I don't make a ton of money working for a local government but I make it work even if it takes time. If you want to continue this argument feel free to contact me via PM I don't think your contest is the place to do it.

Btw next time just crush the tube and start over, it's sloppy and not a way to run a business. You've done a hell of a job building up your company rebuilding mini guns and I give you kudos for that, just don't cut corners.

Never once did I say "o well, it's discounted", I really wish you would stop with these lies.

For the record, every single MK 9 Mod 0 serial number looks like yours, you can thank the ATF for that. At the time those tubes were made I was doing the order for the Military contract and already had all the tubes machined, anodized, and laser engraved when I sent out the paperwork to register them with the ATF. ATF said I couldn't use those numbers as I already used them on my Mk 99 Mod 0, and well needless to say I didn't have time to remake all the tubes before I had to ship the military order out (which I should also note they cut the delivery date in half from when I bid the job). I tried to work with the ATF on this and they suggested that I convert the 7 to a Z and redo my paperwork so that's what I did. It was either I do that fix, or I miss the delivery date on the Military order.

You know, you've had your Mk 9 Mod 0 suppressor for over 2 years now, and NOT ONCE have you e-mailed me with a single issue that might have with the suppressor. This is why I think you're upset with not ever winning one of my contest and want/need some reason to complain about something. If this isn't the case, take me up on my refund offer.

I think it would be a lot more productive on your end if you actually e-mail or pm me when and if you have an issue instead of trying to make up some BS here, which you and I both know are lies.

Totally agree my contest isn't the place for this, but I'm not the one that started this or spread it over to another thread, and I'm not going to sit and watch you cast me in a negative light with lies.

So are you ready for that refund that I offered in the other thread?

Never saw a refund offer as I don't sit on here all day. And I'm not lying, and no I don't give two shits about winning a contest/$400can. And no I don't want a refund, i bought a tirant and osprey and they are my goto 9mm cans as they suppress to great levels. I'll send your fucking can to liberty to get recored one day. I was prepared to apologize for going about this the wrong way, but calling me a liar? Screw you and your loud ass suppressors.

Hello Everyone,

With only three people entering in the contest, it makes it kind of hard picking a winner. :shock:

Here's what I'm going to do, I'm going to run this contest for another week, so all new entries must be posted by 1am Mountain time on August 9th. They can be either posted here or on my DTA facebook page.

This time it will be for a second or even third design that I'll use. :wink:

With that said, for this past weeks t-shirt design contest, I will pick Aklikessuppressors as the winner and he will be receiving a FREE Nano Suppressor. I will have him tweak his design just a little, but overall I do like it.

597shooter and Fireman1291 you will receive a free Minigun shirt once they go into print and are ready to ship.

Come on guys let's see those Minigun t-shirt designs.
