Promote American Apparel With Color Swatches

Hey guys,
I've been noticing more and more how American Apparel is not only the king of printed apparel, but more and more desired and people are familiar with the clothing style and fit.

I decided to promote AA and wrote Dafna at CP just confirm that the "Made in the USA" items are still American Apparel.  I think they use the term "Made in the USA" now since both the apparel and printing are done in the US.  

Anyways this is just a quick mod for those use Hex Angels color swatch mod which was hard to find the post and should probably be stickied since it is such a great mod.

Simply overwrite the images in the folder your have your color swatches with the ones in this zip file.
http://flippinsweetgear.com/resource/fabrics/american_apparel_fabrics.zip

Also, here is some code to add to your shop.cgi.images file if you'd like to include the AA logo on your product pages.  Just change the URL to your site path.  I had to use two since they spell USA (U.S.A.) differently on some of the products.


Code:
*||||Made in the U.S.A.||||Made in the U.S.A. by  <img src="http://yoursite.com/resource/fabrics/type-aa.png"/>
*||||Made in the USA||||Made in the U.S.A. by <img src="http://yoursite.com/resource/fabrics/type-aa.png"/>


Happy Sales! Please let me know if I missed anything.

Thanks for this, but the link you gave to download the images is generating a 404 error.  Can you repost the link?

Thanks.

Sorry, I recently moved servers and didn't upload everything correctly.  It should work now.

Nice work -- that's flippin' sweet!

A couple things:

1: The colour swatch tutorial is here: http://www.marty.net/cgi/marty/board/messageboard?board=tutorials&action=display&num=1177298701

2: I've incorporated the American Apparel logo into the affected swatches with one minor alteration -- the logo is set to consistently appear on the left side of the swatch.

3: The most updated swatch set is always available @ http://www.criticalgraphics.com/resource/Fabrics/Fabrics.zip

I guess that's 3 things. Oh, a fourth...

4: You can see the new swatches @ http://www.criticalgraphics.com/peace_signs.criticalgraphic.1168123+simple-peace-sign.php

Eep -- and a fifth:

5: This is marginally improved code for your images file...


Code:
*||||Made in the U.S.A.||||Made in the U.S.A. by<br><img width="150" height="17" src="/resource/Fabrics/type-aa.png"  alt="American Apparel"/>
*||||Made in the USA||||Made in the U.S.A. by<br><img width="150" height="17" src="/resource/Fabrics/type-aa.png" alt="American Apparel"/>


The alt adds SEO, and the width & height help your page load faster, especially in IE browsers.

Cheers,

Patrick.
