9/8/2017 Open Thread: AKC Merch

Hello guys,

After the highly successful livestream that happened last night which I unfortunately had to miss, I had time to work on some merch ideas.  I do almost all of the design work here for A Kings Castle so I bring you a design that we here find hilarious, and I’m sure all of you will too. This is just a product mock up to see how the design is received.

Presenting the first A Kings Castle T-shirt design:

Front
Back

As you can see the shirt design was inspired by a t-shirt that gives you more energy than Kratom, but ours is better!!

UPDATE: And the A Kings Castle Hoody Design:

Front
Back

 

Also, if you don’t like these designs it is an automatic BANNED! for you.

Lets hear your thoughts on the designs and if you have any other design/merch ideas.

    • If we were going to brand weaponry, it’d have to be our patented BanHammer.

      • Boothe

        Ban hammer? That’s a bit passive for this site. What are we turning into? A bunch of manginas? No. We need an actual war hammer. I’m thinking laser engraved with the AKC logo:http://www.coldsteel.com/war-hammer.html

        • Consolation_of_Philosophy

          There it is. It’s embarrassing how giddy Cold Steel product videos make me.

          • Ainigmaris Thales

            Meh. Cold Steel has lost something in recent years. ANything out of its South African plant is pretty much sheet. And the “Steven Seagal” martial arts collection doesn’t do much for me.

            • Consolation_of_Philosophy

              Credit where credit is due: they have dismembered more severed pig heads under high-speed/slow motion cameras than any other purveyor of blades, maybe ever!

              • Ainigmaris Thales

                Yes, as purveyors of knife porn, they are top shelf. As purveyors of knives… they have lost a step.

    • Ainigmaris Thales

      I could use a good trident. With all these hurricanes and shit, never know when one of those bastards might come in handy.

  • Cell phone case
    Bumper sticker

    • Maybe a shirt with just the logo. The current design is a tad…busy….

      • cheeseburgercheeseburger

        baseball caps and sock hats…

      • We’ll be creating quite a few designs down the road. Some will be more basic. This is just the start.

        • 10-4, chief. Just throwing ideas out there.

    • Both good ideas.

          since this was one of the featured comments and I had some moment to reflect on it over the weekend I will say that there is, at least for the single man, an absolute cure to fapping.
          I had an instance this weekend where totally out of the blue a girl who I very much wanted to do just horrible things to, randomly called me up and said “can I stop by”
          I told her yes of course. 30 minutes later I was engaged in some really fun and filthy coitus. Later I had some time to think about this. If I work up in the morning (at my age) and had a good John Arthur or three when this hairless little sex pot came a callin’ i’d not have had much to give her. As it was, I was able to give her the full attention of a man who was craving her ensuring she will be back for more.

          • Jim Johnson

            Agreed on that. back when I had that habit, I would be far less responsive if I drained my batteries prior to the real event.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhqx7yctQVk

            • Hipponax (μητροκοίτης)

              I’ve actually watched that video (possibly you sent it to me once). I am hugely anti porn. It is such a drug. As a side note, I have a laptop that is about 4 years old that runs pretty much exactly the way it did when I took it out of the box. No anti virus software on it at all. I tell people all the time, 0 porn, 0 illegal downloads and my computer will last as long as the physical components hold up. Sooner or later I assume some of the transistors will just be done for but I have never had any issues with the computer.
              The correlate, I think, is that with no porn and no illegal activity I find that at my age, a ripe 45, I am in as good or better physical condition than most people half my age.

              • Jim Johnson

                I just discovered that video last week. As soon as we get a computer at home again (ours froze), I think I am going to show it to my oldest boy.

                • Hipponax (μητροκοίτης)

                  One thing that the computer guy here showed me was that you can block websites in a different way. I am sure more computer literate people will understand better, but my understanding was that you could block a website. Fine, that’s great. But there are like a bajillion websites out there. This way he showed me was kinda cool. He asked me “how many websites do you really actually visit” So I thought about it and said…regularly probably about 10. So basically he blocked the entire web except those 10 sites. If I go to a site that isn’t one of those 10 it prompts me for a password. I’ve needed to do that maybe a half dozen times in the last few months. Further, I can open the browser as an admin and have the whole internet if I am researching something. I don’t have kids, I just like to lock down my machine because, frankly, I don’t really understand the internet and I would just as soon be safe than sorry with the expensive equipment I use to play around with it. However, if I had kids I would think this an invaluable tool.

                  • Jim Johnson

                    We have a big screen in the front room for the computer where everything is public. We have it set so the internet is locked out from 10 pm to 6 am through http://www1.k9webprotection.com/ , or if we lock it out (windows-L) the kids don’t know the password either. They can play outside if we aren’t around.

                    I am not that computer literate either.

  • Honey Badger

    Can you still buy one of these even if you weren’t banned but left because it just became a little weird?

    • We are an equal opportunity shop

      • I;ve been banned from Breitbart. Does that count?

        • cheeseburgercheeseburger

          “banned from breibart”
          theres a first time for everything…

          • And they won’t even tell me why….
            I only commented like twice

        • You should get a shirt for free for that one

        • StraitlacedMissouri

          Infowars banned me 😂! I can’t seem to get banned at Breitbart.

      • Hipponax (μητροκοίτης)

        commie

    • Boothe

      I was banned from a feminist site, so this should apply. It doesn’t specify where you were banned from. So if you are feeling left out, go over to Huff Po, post some red pill truth call out a couple of blue haired shrews and presto! you’re in the club.

      • Why don’t we all go on a field trip over there? Should be fun

      • Honey Badger

        That’s a good idea. Perhaps this should be a rite of passage or an initiation.

      • Nevsky

        I got banned from Breibart for stating facts about the Tribe.

        • StraitlacedMissouri

          They haven’t banned me. They just remove my comments over there if I leave anything deep about the Tribe.

          • Nevsky

            To learn who rules over you…

  • Hipponax (μητροκοίτης)

    Say what you want about ROK, the shillin’ there is at least paid. A Shiqqa cant catch a beak over here.

    • michaelmobius1

      you never earned a penny? That’s devotion for you

      • Hipponax (μητροκοίτης)

        Sorry mobs no time to mock you endlessly today. Cash me outside Monday

        • cheeseburgercheeseburger

          that girl is a rapper these days…prolly 10 mil views at this pt of a 90 rap song

        • michaelmobius1

          That’s fine. If you’re not getting paid you need to march right up the HR department and sort it out

    • Fine fine….we’ll double what we’re paying you now. Now back to work!

    hey @akingscastle:disqus you ever write up an anti dad body conclusion article? This weekend I might go full hermit and write out the full rape along with the theories behind it. Of course, I am most likely full of shit, but if you want it it’s yours.

    • Been meaning to do that. Maybe I’ll compile it up over the weekend. I’ll take the info, thanks.

    • Disclaimer: by rape, he means his workout will rape your muscles. Don’t need Disqus coming after us. Heh.

      • Hipponax (μητροκοίτης)

        spoiled sport. you take all the fun out of rape

        • Boothe

          That’s my man Hipponax. Putting the fun back in rape, lol.

          • Hipponax (μητροκοίτης)

            Aren’t we here because ROK was so negative. Need to put positive spins on things.

            • Always look on the bright side of liiiiife

  • Red Pill is Life

    How about
    “I was banned from ROK, found Akingscatle.com”
    That would apply for at least 80% of the current readers of this blog.

      • Hipponax (μητροκοίτης)

        moo means no

        • Honey Badger

          She said said “moo”but I knew she wanted it.

          • I thought she was saying “mooorrre”

            • Honey Badger

              Do you know why a farmer fucks a sheep on the edge of a cliff?

          • michaelmobius1

            that’s bull, and you’re milking it

            • When the barn’s a rocking, don’t come a’knocking.

              • That ain’t milk on the wall

              • michaelmobius1

                barnyard game is fine… but I get the feeling its not the farmers daughter that’s making that satisfied baaing noise from inside that barn

        • GhostOfJefferson ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃˡᶦˢᵗ

          What? That’s udderly ridiculous!

          Yes, I went there. I’d do it again.

          • How come you no comment as much anymore?

            • GhostOfJefferson ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃˡᶦˢᵗ

              Real life is taking up a lot of my cycles.

          • Seth Falconer

            Hey, Ghost. Saw you and ‘Nax on an ROK archive post and thought it was new/thought you guys all patched it up. I was about to post a comment, then I saw it was ‘a year ago.’ So, I guess that means you’re 50. Happy birthday, Ghost. Thanks for the good times.

            And thanks for the good times, all you guys.

        • Give the guy a break. After all…

      Ok, guys, enough already. It was a spelling error.
      You are all BANNED.

  • I fully endorse that hoodie. Make the font less blocky though. Maybe get someone on here to do a custom job of it.

    • I picked a standard font but I’m in the process of creating a typeface for AKC.

  • Ainigmaris Thales

    I would legit buy a T-shirt with just the symbol on it.

    • Great minds think alike

      • Only if you guys promise to spread the word about our site if anyone asks about the logo. 😉

        • Ainigmaris Thales

          I bet you’d get more people asking you about it with just the logo.

          • “That looks cool. What is it?”

      • Ainigmaris Thales

        Who are you again?

        • Your boyfriend

          • Ainigmaris Thales

            That’s gay.

            • Thanks sweetie

              • Ainigmaris Thales

                Ewww. I need like a Silkwood shower in isopropyl alcohol and hand santizer.

                • I only flirt because I’m in the post-birth period of chastity

  • Ainigmaris Thales

    Does anybody have a way to contact Uncle Bob (Bob Smith)? Please tell that old sumbitch that we need him over here. I want some NFL picks for the weekend, man.

    • Red Pill is Life

      His betting “advice” on football was always crap anyway…

      • Iattacku

        Really. I never watched football like that so I don’t know.

        • Red Pill is Life

            Why did you delete your hurricane comments, Nancy?

            • Red Pill is Life

              Nobody was talking to you, fruitcake. Go away.

              • Ainigmaris Thales

                Sounds like somebody has got some sand in his va-jay-jay.

                • Red Pill is Life

                  • Ainigmaris Thales

                    Why you so angry, Sandy?

                    • Red Pill is Life

                      Why don’t you talk to JumpnJIve instead?

                    • Ainigmaris Thales

                      I don’t know who that is. Why did you delete your comments?

                      You fucking faggot. The “gay” meme is not a toy. It can’t just be thrown around willy nilly and shoved up people’s asses like an oiled hamster. It has to be used with tact, strategery and 4D chess-level… um… thinkery. Now you got this jacked up Kersey clone tryna get my digit.

    This is my official warning on Irma. That whore is not turning right to fuck Florida up. She is a mean, stubborn cunt, and she is headed directly into the Gulf to go after Texas or Louisiana, just like Katrina did. The pressure isn’t low enough to make her turn, she’s too big and too fat, and like a feminist fatty cunt with her eyes on an all-you-can-eat buffet, she will keep lumbering along on her current course.

    • Iattacku

      Texas can’t get a break

      • Ainigmaris Thales

        To be fair, I’m not a meteorologist, and all the plump dumpy weatherman on the TV and at NASA and shit keep saying its gonna bank hard right and ass-rape Florida. I just think they are all wrong. This is almost exactly the thing Katrina was *supposed* to do back in 2005, but she kept going her own way. She eventually turned, but that turn meant she hit Louisiana instead of the Florida panhandle. I think the same thing is going to happen here.

        • UWOTM8

          I mean, weatherman get paid whether they’re right or not. The hell kind of incentive is that to get the facts straight?

    • He posted a pic of Charles Bronson 🙂

      • Ainigmaris Thales

        So “Red Pill is Life” has basically admitted he was Kersey. And he would have gotten away with it, too, if it was for us meddlin’ kids…

  • UWOTM8

    Do you have any plans for a shirt with just the design and no text? I’ve always kind of dug the more cryptic look and a clean design.

    • Yes, there will be shirts and other clothing with just the logo. Keep a look out for them in our store, located on the menu at the top of our site.

  • Marius Agrippa Lucullus

    what about a smaller logo on the chest area with AKC.com going L to R & BANNED on the back maybe with a number kinda like a sports jersey style?

  • League of Shadows

    Needs more pocket squares.

    • Good suggestions. There’ll def be more colors and we’ll look into the .com change. Thanks.
