merch monday...


Been meaning to get some new TFL merch available for awhile now.  What has really been putting me off is the hassle of keeping track of orders and packaging and shipping them out.  Decided to explore the online options of print and ship on demand.  Going this route cuts into my profit margin a bit but I don't expect to get rich off merch anyway (but I do need to pay for my "affordable" healthcare).  Trying out galloree for a test run - they are located in my old hometown of Charlotte, NC.  Had an image of Chupa rendered as line art from fiverr and got the finished product emailed back to me overnight for only ten bucks.  Did the rest of the graphics myself and uploaded the artwork and ordered a coffee mug and Tshirt from them to see how they look.  If all goes well, people can just order directly once I set up my store there and Galloree handle it all.  Working on a Ben design as well.  I won't entirely be cutting my friend Rick from Bullshirtz out of the loop as I expect to do more screen printing through him for local sales.  63,71,39,0,B

How about a composite with Chupa, Javier, Ben, and your parking meter and pay phone ? Field lab iconography.

That sounds a little cluttered to me...

John will the merchant by any chance courier to Durban SA? A lot of American merchants on Amazon unfortunately don't thats why I'm asking. Long shot...Do you anticipate having TFL chuppa beanies for winter in the pipeline with the same rooster logo? Am I correct in understanding that one can choose own wording cause I'd like the words seize the Day Fly High....Chuppa's interest and always sitting on your tryke. Tks for everything you are doing for your fans. TFL tiny living. Large impact.:-)

It should be a quick delivery to me since I'm less than one hour from Charlotte. Let us know when we can order! I'm looking forward to showing off the merchandise to my friends.

I tried fiverr once and lets say $5bucks was to much for what I got back.Glad you had better luck.

John Wells said...

I have used fiverr four times and was only disappointed once. I am willing to take a five dollar gamble. The rooster image was a tricky one, but I was very pleased with the result and will be using the same guy to do some more images for me for some other designs I am planning. I also had a fiverr designer lay out the rest of the Chupa design with text but I was much happier with my own design.

To Annemarie Gerber: Howzit ! I always had good luck with DHL when I lived in South Africa from 1995 to 1996.

Annemarie Gerber said...

Howzit Sam...geez small world. Hope you still carry fond memories of our braaivleis and sunny skies. The problem is that the courier is linked to the merchant so when I as the customer order I cannot select a particular courier. It will depend on the merchant whether they are prepared to have their product delivered over here. Amazon is pretty neat in this regard when you place an order a message immediately comes up ...merchant ship or does not ship to DBN SA. But I'm sure somehow we'll be able to make a plan. I ordered a Trump Make America Great beanie for my antique teddy recently and found a merchant on Amazon who shipped to Durban whereas most did merchants did not. Should arrive any day now however not in the red color I wanted because that merchant did not ship over here. But Im sure somehow we'll be able to make a plan to get me a Chuppa T shirt over here. Cheers and thanks
