Is it too early for Halloween?

It’s still 80 in the midwest but cooler temps are coming.  It’s time to start thinking about Halloween costumes.  And Pumpkin patches.  And Hayrack rides.  And caramel apples.  And candy.  Lots and lots of candy.  Of course, as we plan for Halloween, we forget that immediately following that we plan for Thanksgiving and then Christmas and well, I’m just not ready for that yet.  So, now that I’m depressed about getting ready for the Holidays, enjoy some new designs for All Hallows Eve.

The Gifts of George Takei

I am a fan of George Takei on Facebook, along with almost 3 million other people.  On a daily basis he will post 5+ cute or funny images and they are usually pretty good and more often than not, they start some active commenting.  Once he posts something, one or more of my friends will usually share it.  I’m sure you’ve all experienced a little George second hand.  Most of his posts are sent in by fans but he does a good job of distilling them.

Anyway, a few days ago he posted a simple little image:

This little truth reminded me that the majority of my work is based around the internet.  In fact, I rarely use my computer for a task that doesn’t involve the internet in some fashion.   So what do you do when the internet goes down, even for a short time.  I find it funny that one of our new designs (created just last week) answers that very question.  When the internet goes down, the tv goes on.  Is that true for you?  Here’s the artwork for dark shirts.

Or a version for lighter shirts:

This isn’t a Popularity contest. Or is it?

We posted our “I’ll take the Mormon over the Moron” shirt a few weeks ago, but we thought it was worth another mention.  For the past few weeks, this shirt has outsold the nearest competitor by 3 to 1.  We have other Romney/Republican designs, but this one appears to have struck a nerve.

On the flip side of the coin, Republican shirts are outselling Democrat shirts almost 10 to 1 on the site.  With the polls all showing the current President up by 5-6 points, the Democrats must feel no need to support their team.

What do you think?  Do you wear tshirts to support your party/candidate?

Coffee Loading…

Ever have one of those days when you wake up and the world is in slow motion?  I have.  Again and Again.  But thanks to the good people of climates much warmer than mine, I’m able to perk up with a little jolt of caffeine from my favorite coffee.  Of course, it takes a few minutes for the magic to begin, but that’s why we entertain ourselves in the mean time with cool shirts.  Java up!
