Commerce

Let's have a big hand for Josh The Pilot, modelling this spring's hottest look: Self-Importance Wear!

Josh is a 24 year old pilot from Waxaw, North Carolina, and is dating the world's most insecure freelance writer, which is truly, deeply saying something. Josh, let's see the front of the prototype tshirt advertising her website, shall we?

Annnnnd now the back:


I'm thinking of leaving it like this. Just like this, for the blondeness speaks for its very self.

Fortunately, I have competent readers to compensate. Many, many thanks to Lisa The Reader of Chumney Visual Designs, Inc., who specializes in personalized greeting cards and will probably even spell everything on them correctly. Go lookit.

Lisa designed a smashing logo for BlondeChampagne.com, and merch is now available on CafePress. The markup on every single product (i.e. my profit) is exactly $1. Everything else? Shipping, handling, and The Man.

Another design is forthcoming. For now, however, simply bask in the Lisaness of the whole thing.

You do realize there is a typo on the back of the shirt, yes? The "n" should be after the "g" in champagne? But on the back it comes before? Just wanted to make sure you saw that, but I'm figuring you did...

How will Josh feel when everyone is wearing a shirt declaring they are the #1 fan?

These are nice, MB!

BTW, technically, your "profit" is $1. Your profit margin is how much you earned divided by the revenue you took in expressed as a percentage.

OMG. I just corrected a teacher. I'm going to hell. Fast.

I've never had "champange" before! Is that something new? Where can I get some?

ok, i'm an idiot and read the rest of the post again and realize you know about the typo. sorry, i had a "blonde moment" ;)

MB said...

No, dantelope, you corrected an English teacher on a matter of economics. Slight difference.

I loved wanderingupnorth's idea of the typeset "blonde champagne", with a woman with a champagne glass leaning against it and the tagline, "Mighter than the sword". Any chance of that happening? I would definetally buy that shirt!

Uuh, lets have a T-Shirt design contest!!!

MB said...

Everyone can absolutely still send in designs. I have another set of tshirts coming out next week, and am fully open to suggestions :)

Dantelope said...

Ok ok ok, MB, you're right... so maybe I won't go to hell after all?

Nah... my ticket was one-way and non-refundable.

Please make sure that champagne is spelled correctly on the back of the shirt before you print any more!!! :)

Hey everyone, it is me Lisa. MB has been awesome during the logo design process. I appreciate her letting me do this for her.
As a designer, it would be great to see other peoples work and their interpertation (spelling) of the blonde Queen. You all can even send them to me and I can make up a neat collage of them all and then post here. I feel honored to be a part of this community. "Don't hate me because I am a designer."

dantelope: How will Josh feel when everyone is wearing a shirt declaring they are the #1 fan?

Probably the same way I feel because HE'S wearing a shirt declaring himself the #1 fan.

Of course, I'm not going to pimp someone's typo'd website. As far as that goes, the plain T-shirts don't seem to have the site address at all, misspelled or no.

And don't for one second think I'm going to cram my over-upholstered torso into the babydoll T just to demonstrate my favorite blog's URL to the world. If that means I can't be #1 Fan, then I'll happily relinquish the title to JTP.

MB said...

Did you see The Anti-Mullet tshirt, Mike? It has the URL on the back. No excuses now :)

Savannah the college student said...

Wow, Josh is way behind on reading your posts, MB!

Cute logo, when will you have it on the blog itself?

MB said...

Couple of you have been asking, but that shirt is a one-of-a-kind. JTP wanted a #1 fan shirt, for some reason, and sorry, they're not for sale. Unless you WANT to wander the Earth wearing a typo.
