How’d that happen?
I immediately set about to remedy that problem when … I got stuck. I have no idea how to proceed! It’s easy to grab a quote and throw it on a shirt, but I think that’s just playing the “quantity over quality” rule and I don’t love that. Maybe that’s why I’m not raking in the cash, either, but that’s never been my goal 😉 If I’m going to put up a design and ask people to spend real money to own it, I’d like to feel like I put some effort into it.
So, who wants to brainstorm with me? Amazon offers t-shirts and hooded sweatshirts, but RedBubble offers a larger selection of other merch – iPhone cases, pillows, blankets, journals, stickers, etc… so I can really do either. If you’re a fan of The Tempest, what do you think would look good on merchandise? A favorite quote? One of our old jokes or hashtags games from over the years?
I suppose we could look into original artwork if somebody had a cool idea. I’m already thinking about maybe digging into the public domain stuff and seeing if I can’t get creative with one of the old woodcut images depicting Prospero and Ariel. Hmmm…
Who’s feeling creative? I promise I won’t nag people to buy it if we end up making it. I just want to see some new designs flowing into the store, and
The Tempest is the biggest gap I see right now. (Not a lot of call for Pericles merchandise.)
