I have been receiving a lot of requests from people asking if they can print tee-shirts or mugs (or whatever) for use either internally at their company or for sale. At this time, it is strictly prohibited to use the cartoons or characters for anything that is of commercial interest (read: makes you money off our brand!).
We have a LOT of comic strips (I think we are are approaching 50!) and of course our characters. At this point, all the artwork on the site is “optimized” for the web viewing (meaning if you try to print them they are not “book” quality). This will take time to do.
Instead of me rushing to convert all the artwork and creating a lot of products and an online store (bla bla bla)… I figured I’d ask YOU and see if there is any interest in merchandise for you and your teams. Am thinking T-Shirts, Mugs, and whatever cool stuff you can think of doing.
That’s where YOU come in.
Please let me know if there is any interest in merchandise from the site.
It is not a commitment to order, but rather actually me talking to my customers before trying to deliver something. Wow. How Agile :).
If you can, please take a few moments and send me your thoughts.
I’d really appreciate the feedback!
And also don’t forget to tell your teams and friends about the site (thank you).
