My wife has discovered Zazzle, a site along the lines of CafePress. You upload your stuff, and they put it onto a t-shirt or mug or whatnot for sale. Zazzle offers more options and a bigger cut of the proceeds. (Not that I’ve sold anything yet, I’m just going by what I see in the fine print.) She’s been filling her Zazzle account with her photographs and watercolor paintings. (I love this one.) Merchandising aside, she seems to enjoy the process of making this stuff for its own sake. Having exhausted her supply of material to merchandise, she’s decided to set up a DMotR store.
I’ve been meaning to do something like this for a long time. People keep saying “I’d buy that on a T-shirt” and I keep thinking “I really ought to get around to that”. She cruised through the comic archives and looked in the comments for popular quotes, and made them available on whatever knicknacks they have over there.
If you have a favorite quote that you don’t see in the store, or you want to request something a little different, please drop a comment below. Heather will be reading this I’m sure, and looking for an excuse to make more stuff. Alas, we can’t put images from the comics themselves onto t-shirts. You know how it is.
Another reason to like Zazzle: They generate cool little things like the ad below, which makes it a lot easier to show off what you’ve got.
Shamus Young is an old-school OpenGL programmer, author, and composer. He runs this site and if anything is broken you should probably blame him.
