bowsers wowsers
so shabbos was... mildly restful. i think i'm going to get a little bit more sleep tonight somehow. i spent a lot of time worrying about stupid money issues just because i'm starting to think maybe i should get a 'real' job and stop thinking i can make it on my own with my own company. but i really want to do giraffe two-step.

but here's the thing. i've mentioned giraffe two-step here a few times and very few people have offered any feedback.

i want every single person who reads this to please offer some kind of feedback. the idea is a t-shirt company ala snorg or defunker but it would be shirts that i design, and it would be called giraffe two step. i want to make shirts that make people smile or giggle even. is the market oversaturated already with web sites that peddle shirts? am i too late? can i come up with enough innovative designs to get people interested?

are you interested?

the two shirts i have in mind right now are the giraffe two-step (imagine a dance instruction chart for a giraffe learning to do the two-step) and then there's the heart measuring tape - because how else do you measure love? :)

i hate to admit it but tractate eruvin is not all that interesting. :(

i already gave you feedback. good idea, but i'm too poort tohik about whether ornot people would actuallybuy them because i cannot.

how would you design these shirts? what programs? would all of them be designed by you? if other people did designs how would they be paid? would you print by order or keep an amount in stock? where would you get them printed? how much would you charge? what company's shirts would you use?

I'm hoping to do two things to make the shirts affordable to everyone:

1.make them not overpriced and
2.institute a referral program that gives in-store credit

The designs would be mostly in my head until I'd commission them to be drawn. I think people could be paid either with one fixed fee or a part of the profits from that shirt, whichever they preferred.

I don't want to print by order but I don't want the stock to be too large either, at least initially - plus the stock would most likely be kept in my flat / storage space downstairs. I think I would do a number of shirts that would be sold purely on a two week presale basis like goats does.

I want to charge approximately $15 per shirt.

I'd like to use brunetto to print them and use american apparel shirts to print on. Yeppers.

I like to look at tshirts on the internet, but I've never gotten around to ordering one. I like funny shirts. So I'm interested. I would want reasonable prices and international shipping and clear sizing! And good colours! I don't wear white or black!

If you do it differently to other sites, I reckon you could do well. Especially through word of mouth.

Is that enough feedback?

Also, the name is SO cute!

I like your ideas. I don't want to do that many black or white shirts. :)

I hope to have sizing not just by american sizes 's' 'm' etc but in chest measurements etc in metric and other measurement systems :D

I think shipping would be exactly what the post office would charge and no more.

Thank you for the feedback. Glad you like the name. :)

Will you do more than adult sizes? I think if you did children sizes also, you would have a greater chance at suggess. But it is a good idea, and the two shirts you are thinking of are cute!

I would certainly want to do more than adult sizes depending on demand of course. :)

There are a lot of t-shirt websites out there but I know I love shirts, anytime I can find a new shirt website I have to check it out, so I think you could definitely do well with it. :)
