Well, I don't physically like, Have have the T-shirts in my actual possession, but this is a good thing if you really think about it.
See, this way, you won't be waiting till 2037 for me to remember to mail them out after you order.
Here's the scoop: I like my Zazzle store. I like my Etsy shop, too. Especially for the stuff I can make on my own like quotable prints (but gimme a bit. Right now it's digital prints only. At least until tomorrow, anyway).
So when I saw TeeLatino followed me on twitter, I clicked the link and followed back after screaming out something incomprehisible to the average person about Zazzle and Kickstarter having a baby together and now I get to offer more Tees with a really cool concept...
The Husband, by the way, halfway understood what I was saying, which is exactly why we are married.
The hook? I set me goal of how many tees I want to sell and the time frame in which to sell them. My campaign title, quite obviously, is ChingonaFest.
I chose 50 shirts as my goal. Fourteen days as my time frame.
That means it's all or nothing.
Forty-nine shirts ain't bringin' home the bacon and the campaign will be relaunched. No shirts are printed unless the goal is met by the deadline. And for you small biz and fundraising-types, no upfront cost, either. Just like Zazzle and Etsy and Ebay and most things in life, TeeLatino (which is for EVERYBODY, by the way...the URL is www.crowdt.com) takes their cut on the back end and only if the goal is reached.
I think I love these guys. Also? No, they are not paying me ... but you can bet your sweet ass I'm going to be making nice and practicing my adorable internet stalker look until they realize how perfect I am to be their ambassador-spokeperson-whatever-the-phrase-is-this-week. Because I am.
So, to recap:
* The first #Chingonafest campaign on TeeLatino/CrowdT.com is live
* The goal is 50 shirts to be sold in 14 days
* No shirts will be printed and NO ONE gets a #ChingonaFest shirt if all 50 do not sell
* On the flipside, ONLY 50 of THIS design will be made if the campaign is a success.
* After that, it's on to a new phrase, a new design, or even a new look for an old favorite. And I've got plenty.
Make me look good, Internet. You have no idea how you validate the fact that I work at home in my pajamas.
