Opening Up Shop

My boss at work showed an unusual amount of coolness this morning, and he commissioned me to make a Palin support t-shirt that he would buy for any of the ladies at work who wanted one.

Apparently he has become quite enamored with Mrs. Palin and her campaign as Veep. So, I promptly set my design skills to work and came up with a lovely shirt design:
Full of femininity and complete with the GOP elephant.

I have been putting off opening up a Cafepress shop for quite some time, although I could use a place to put my design skills to work. So, I introduce you to my new shop Random Rags.

The only design I have up right now is the Palin design, but I hope to be adding some other kinds of shirts and memorabilia in the future.

Note to Self: I kept the markup really low in hopes that people would be willing to buy. Consider anything you purchase to be a donation to the MJ's School Debt Fund.

Congrats on the store and the cute shirt! Alas, I will not be buying one, as I'm swinging for the other team in this election. But it is really cute and I can't wait to see your other designs.

That's very cute with the huge Palin and the tiny McCain. ;)

Aubrey - To each their own dear. I don't particularly enjoy either party, but I think Palin is a firecracker.

PP - Well, Palin has trumped both McCain and Obama in recent polls. It's only fitting she have the bigger name :)

Aww, the design, especailly the color pink is really nice! I will be definitely getting one if you design something else in the future since I'm not rooting for the big elephant:) But I think Palin is pretty lady...

Maki said...

Hi mj, I forgot to ask; would you mind if I link you on my blog? Let me know!

teeni said...

Yeah, what Peter said! Pretty font too!

DEL said...

Very cool! Let us know when you get some more designs up (esp. anything cop related!)

I love the design! And I'm happy you posted this because I'd never heard of CafePress until your post. I think it might be something my husband could use for a business he wants to dabble in. Thanks!

I'm still not sure about Palin...sure, she has guts, but I'm not sure about some things...I'm holding out on judgement for a few minutes.

Maki - Of course you can link me! That would be greeeaat!

Teeni - Thanks!

del - No problem. I know there will be some cop related stuff in the future. Me and my LEO are working on that as we speak.

KM - Oh yeah! And it's really easy to set up. Glad I could be of help :)

CM - Yeah I sent you an email back. I completely understand your trepidation.
