Junkie Shirts… have at 'em!

  • Avatar of Kevin Mest

    At the urging of several Junkies, I’ve made these available at http://www.cafepress.com/Kevinesque .  Please take a look!  I’ve made the ‘OJ’ shirts available in general, and will certainly make some custom username designs avaiable by request.  Let me know if you’d like a custome one, and I’ll try to get it up there.

    Also if you think you’d like to get a particular product other that the selections I’ve chosen (long sleeve, hoodie, etc), let me know.  I may be albe to make some other ones available for you.

    UPDATE:

    Junkie Gear Can be found at : 

    Feedback welcome.  If you have suggestions or requests let me know.

    I made these in the same style as IAM—’s gear, but if you want a different setup (different image placement, swap front image with back image, etc) let me know.

    I even looked in the Wiki, but I do not know what the "OJ" stands for. Can someone enlighten me, please?

    Avatar of J.P.

    because I look old and weathered. But I’m an old, weathered dude. Now all the Sigler ladies are spectacularly gorgious; most of the gals look like they should be models. The few remaining gals actually ARE models… And I’m not even talking about physical looks! When our FDO doesn’t want to use the brute force of a plaid tank to crush and conquer a nation, he just sends one, ONE, of his female junkies into the capital city, casually dressed. She never speaks a word; everything vital for good governance stops; they fail as a nation. The Bene Gesserit were rookies at best. BTW, I have no doubt Beth’s included in this description!

    Avatar of J.P.

    went plaid on his ass? This gives me an idea, maybe we could have the OJ stuff on the front, and like a concert tour, put a list of stuff from the pantheon on the back. Or a list of cities the FDO has visited. Or better yet, a list of countries he’s dominated–the ones that sell his books–under the title, “World Domination Tour”. Yeah! I might need me another shirt now.

     The Pantheon of Siglerism is some funny ass shit; A list of countries that has been dominated would RAWK. 

    Yet they are both subject to change. Maybe I should start sitting zazen and it will become clearer.

     and that your price is a bit lower than that of what the "design your own custom tee" at Cafe Press normally runs

    So a few ?s:

    1. Is it possible to get different colors? I loathe white. I know Cafe Press has a slew to choose from.
    2. If #1 is yes, should we simply contact you directly to get pricing information? 
    3. How’d you infiltrate Cafe Press? Did GirlCo help?

    Avatar of Kevin Mest

    Hellz yeah!

    Avatar of Kevin Mest

    Yep, I’ve made a bunch of custom stuff… but as for the pricing differential, I really have no clue.  I don’t charge anything above what CafePress charges (I’m just making them available.  I could never charge $$ to get junkies their schwag, that would be uber lame Laughing ) , so what you’re seeing is what CafePress is charging.  Now… If what you’re saying is true (that the ‘design your owns’ are more than the ones offered at a shop) then I may have a possible explaination.  When one does a ‘one-off’ design your own, CafePress I’m sure sees that as a premium product for which they can charge more… the more rare the prod (or the smaller the lot of production) the higher the per-item cost will be.  However, when I open a shop, I beleive that CafePress sees that as a potential recurring revenue stream, so they’re able to offer the products at a lower price… they’re counting on the volume instead of the one-off… and offering that lower price may also intice more volume.  When you do a ‘Design your Own’,  CafePress has already got your sale, but its probably only one sale.  With a shop they have to dangle the carrot because the consumer hasn’t made the decision to buy yet.  Then again, I’m a software engineer, not an economist… I could be totally off.  Seems to me that’s feasible though.

    Answers to questions:

    1. Absolutely.  I chose white initially because a) its pretty standard, and b) I was sure that the images would show up nicely on the shirts… however, there is no constraint.  So long as the design will be visible on the color your choose, I’ll give it a go.  On top of that, I’m not constrained to short-sleeve tees either.  If you want a hoodie, long sleeve tee, mouse pad, coffe mug, thong, whetever. (someone, please, order a thong)
    2. Yup, just let me know.  If I make up a new design for you, I’ll more than likely open up you’re own specific shop for your gear.  Pricing will not be above what CafePress charges.
    3. A little research.  I did a little reading and found out that CafePress allows a ‘basic’ no-frills shop for no cost.  So I created a login and strated creating shops.  Right now, I’ve got 10 shops open… 2 for generic all pourpos junkie stuff like the ‘OJ’ shirts, and I’ve got 8 others with custom username shirts.  The basic shops have some constraints, like you cant have more than 80 products offered at any one time… but I don’t think that I’ll have to worry about that one for a while.  There are some other ‘rules’ but I think I’ve basically gotten around them by opening new shops for the custom work.  In this case GirlCo did not help… however, of the first custom username shirts that I made, the majority were GirlCo affiliated.  One must keep GirlCo happy.

     Hope tha that helps.  If you have any other question let me know!

    Here’s a link to a new deisgn that I’m making available:   http://www.cafepress.com/Kevinesque2

    It’s a front/back design, so let me know what you think.  If you like it but want it on a different shirt or something, let me know and I’ll add some more options.

    And randomly it would be awesome if the shirts could be like a red/black plaid. Its kinda what I think about when I think of the plaid revolution.

    If those aren’t too expensive or big to put on, if you can get permission, there are some pretty awesome ones in the haiku thread. :)

    Imagine “The Chang Bang” on the left breast, with “brought to you by Detective Pookie Chang” beneath it in a smaller font. Then in larger letters on the back, “Your Hoola Hoop or mine?” in large letters. I can totally see this in white letters on a black t-shirt! (I don’t know how using someone else’s TM’d product like the Hoola Hoop works with something like this.)

    He consulted me a bit (or tried to… but at the time I was uber busy and didn’t realize that he had messaged me until it was probably too late, sorry brother TwoWire!) I’m sure the most he got from me was the realization that it could be done, but the rest was all him, and a fine job at that.

    is getting an image that presents well on a dark color. bright colored images wont do well on dark, and… if your images has a white background, you need to photoshop it to remove the BG so that you dont have a pic inside of a white rectangle on a dark shirt.

    not impossible, but, need to be conscientious

    Avatar of Kevin Mest

    and in case you might still be interested…

    I know you hate white, so I added a grey as well

    http://www.cafepress.com/sadock

    I figure the image ‘should’ still present fairly well on grey.
