Check it out...
Reproduction TF symbols and replacement toy symbols - Reprolabels.com
Loving the new site. I went ahead and ordered some labels I've been wanting for a few Classics bots (Jazz, ML Soundblaster, G3 trailer and Hound/ Ravage). Now the waiting game...
Awesome, love the new site!
Best part is.... NO FLASH! I can actually browse it on my iphone now!
Hah.. Just noticed the redesign because I needed to buy some new stickers for my recently purchased Spinister.
No difference on my Xperia Play
Does look alot better now though, I still need to pick up that Alt Trailbreaker set.
The artwork is topnotch!
That blue link on black background is murder on the eyes.
I hope it runs on my android now...
Runs on mine
Still shit slow though unfortunately, or maybe it's just because this has been announced on tfw2005 and traffic is high?
Yeah, unfortunately, this is what I was thinking too. It makes it hard to read. Any way of changing that blue text to white? Or even better, putting some sort of white frame around the names (since once you click on them they turn purple, which is just as bad against black as blue).
Otherwise it looks nice!
I think if I were them I wouldn't have a 600KB PNG for a background on the main page.
wasnt nearly this slow when it came out a few days ago. Not sure why it's so slow now =/
Still doesn'twork well on my Droid.
Oh yeah, when is TFW going to have a mobile site already??
Nice. I've never bought one of these before but I'm planning to if they ever release a set for DOTM deluxe Leadfoot.
Looks good. But I have some advices for optimizing it more, if you have Photoshop: The PNGs with transparency could probably be replaced with GIFs and transparent background. Try using "Save for web" and then try 32 colors without dithering and if it looks not good, try the other options one after another. Finally in 256 colors it should at least look good but often you can use less colors for smaller pictures like those. At the bottom left corner you can see what the file size will be and compare it to the images currently in use.
For the JPGs you can use the same, choose "Save for web" than JPEG in high quality and it will be probably smaller then now.
Overall you can decrease loading time that way. Especially people who don't have fast internet will thank you.
Even though most people have fast internet nowadays, you should always try to keep filesizes small for the internet. The same way programmers should not bloat their software just because the prices for hdds are very low.
But other than that I really like the new design!
Try my tips, maybe they are useful for you and you can gain some performance! =)
Keep up the good work
is the site very slow for anyone else?
nice to see they've updated from that late 90's website look to an early 00's website look instead
I still can't believe flash isn't supported on them.
Improved, but still needs some work. Aside from the large useless splash image, readability issues, all the thumbnails along the main page just link to the category.
