got freedom?

September 29th, 2004 (01:23 pm)

I finally got around to opening up my Resist Tyranny Cafepress shop--I created it months ago, but wasn't (and am not) satisfied with the artwork. But yesterday I had a brainstorm and created a shirt saying "got freedom?", using an 18th-century font I've been working on (i.e., one that would have been familiar to the Founders).

(Edit: I set up a separate "got freedom?" shop, because the "resist tyranny" stuff just wasn't up to snuff.)

Nice. :)

On some of your other items, you've got a web address that doesn't have anything yet.

Oops

Oops--yeah, I originally had some ambitious plans to set up a site with essays about resisting tyranny, but that never happened. I've set that address to redirect to the store. Thanks!

Aha! I was wondering where that helmet graphic came from on my computer! I like the infant shirt!

can you put it in any color except white? I'm horrible on white shirts.

I can, though there isn't a large range. Let me see...here we are. I can do:


Yellow

Green

Pink

Grey

Organic Cotton

Hooded Sweatshirt

Sweatshirt

Baseball Jersey

Any of these look good?

I haven't forgotten the non-caucasian medieval horseman picture for you, Rusty, really! And it will be on a blue shirt.

If you don't like the CafePress choices for John's new stuff, maybe he could send you the file and you could print it out on iron-on stuff from Staples, and iron it on a shirt of your choosing.

Yeah, I could do that. I'll be putting up an early version of the font I used Real Soon Now (it's still lacking a few important punctuation marks; but, once I've got those done, it'll have most of ASCII, at least).

I meant send him a .jpeg But if he wants the font, that would work, too.

Either way. Having the font lets him make it whatever size he wants.

Why have them separate shops?

I set up a separate "got freedom?" shop

I like this one -- simple, elegant, makes people pause and think a little.

I need more t-shirts like I need a hole in the head, but I'll have to think about this. Maybe a hat or a button or somesuch...

There -- ten-pack of buttons. Appropriate for me, and I can give 'em away, so it's really the best bang for the buck...
