Hi Guys & Dolls!
I’ve been working on a project for a while and today I get to finally get to share it with you: Vintageortacky T-shirts! I’ve thought about doing this for a year, but I always felt weird; I realize that I have a large viewership, but I still feel like a girl with a camera who got lucky that people like her videos- who am I to make my own shirts? I ditched the idea, but over the last few months so many of you have commented in my videos that certain phrases of mine would make great shirts, and some of you have have out-right asked for shirts! Then a little over a week ago, the amazingly talented Goldiestarling (Angie) tweeted me with a t-shirt prototype and said “I’d love to see a VOT Shirt”! It was then that I realized it wasn’t a pompous act -it would actually be really cool!
Now, I don’t know about you but I just don’t have a t-shirt printing press lying around, so I knew I’d have to go with one of these “make your own” websites like Cafepress or Spreadshirt. I decided to go with spreadshirt because I liked the different styles/sizes of shirts they offered (I’m selling some styles up to a men’s 4XL) and they are accredited with the BBB- and you guys know I’m always looking out for you!
I have several different styles and designs right now, so hopefully there’s something for everyone who wants one, but if there is a phrase or concept you’d like to see, please let me know and I’ll see what I can do to make it happen! Also I really suck in the creating-graphics/images department, so if any of you would like to create concepts/designs etc, I’d LOVE to use your designs. I’m not really going to be making a ton of money off these shirts, so I can’t pay anyone for designs, BUT I’d be more than happy to give a shout-out for the creator of any designs I use!
The kinda sucky thing is that I don’t have any of the shirt in my hands to show you in videos or to comment on the quality. I wanted to wait until I could buy a few styles so I could show you guys in a video; I decided to guy go ahead and share these now because spreadshirt is having a deal: now through April 4th you can get $10 off a $50 purchase when you use the coupon code SPRING2011 or CADSPRING2011!… I figured you guys might want to take advantage of the coupon!
Check out the t-shirt shop here:
One last thing is that even though I created these and I am making a small commission when you buy them, they are being sold though spreadshirt, so any business/purchasing questions should probably be directed at them since I’m not sure I’d be able to answer your questions.
Ok guys I think that’s about it. I hope you like the shirts, and please let me know if there’s anything I can do it improve, this it totally new for me.
There will be a new makeup video of some kind (review or tutorial) this weekend 🙂
