UPDATE:

THE PLANETPOV STORE ON ZAZZLE IS NOW OPEN!

You can go there now to purchase shirts, bumper stickers and coffee mugs! And you can customize whatever you want to buy, change any t-shirt from lady’s to men’s or vice-versa, change the shirt color, the style from short sleeve to long sleeve, it’s up to you.

Here’s the direct link to our store: http://www.zazzle.com/planetpov

And here’s a display widget for our store:

================================================

We discussed a while back setting up a Zazzle store to help promote and finance The Planet so I’ve made a few mock ups to get everyone’s feedback on style, color, etc.

Since we are sometimes using member-created art and text, our proposal is to share 30% of all profits with the member who created the art or copy that we use. Now, the profit margin on Zazzle merchandise is not huge if we sell items for the lowest price we can, which I think we should to begin. And I wouldn’t predict sales on most items to be more than a handful at best but it could be fun… you could wear or drink from your own posts!

So, here are some initial designs, please let me know which you like, if you think a shirt should be in a different color or style, if a design just doesn’t look good to you or if you have any other suggestions.

A few members had originally offered to volunteer to help maintain and develop merchandise and the store, I would be happy to have that help.

So, here are our first swings at this:

Corporations are People Too! by Dr. Suits

Periodic Table of Dangerous Elements

PlanetPOV Black T-Shirt

PlanetPOV – Light Colored T-Shirt

Morning Blog – Coffee Cup

Bumper Sticker

Again, let me know what you think of these designs and any ideas you have for more. Thanks!!!

    Adlib, you are incredibly efficient. It’s amazing!

    I’ve already added T-shirts and 2 mugs to my shopping cart, but can’t figure out how to find window decals.

    I realize the PPOV store is still under construction perhaps?

    Much to the gratitude of my husband, I will have to wait awhile longer before ordering!

  3. SueInCa says:

    Great Idea. I like the idea of window decals. I do not use bumper stickers on my cars, ever. But I would have a window sticker on my car and my window at home. I like the women’s shirt, but I like them roomy. What sizes will they go up to? I might even buy a t-shirt for my brother.

    Oooo! Must get half a dozen of those MB mugs, in this house they call me “The Terminator.” 😳

    Might need some T-shirts too, are these items already for sale?

  5. bitohistory says:

    The calendar idea is good. WTS, KQ, AC, all do graphics.

  6. bitohistory says:

    No long sleeved mens shirts?

  7. nellie says:

    AdLib — what about some of the graphics KQ has created for the friday music threads? And what about the Vox Populi logo? That would look amazing on a black tee.

  8. PepeLepew says:

    I like the coffee cups!

    How about window decals?

  9. Chernynkaya says:

    Dang! I love ’em ALL! Can we have a black t-shirt too though? I’m like BigDogMom, only a black-type person. If not, I’ll just take what you have, happily!

    (And I’m not really here today-- this is my procrastinating alter ego writing.)

  10. nellie says:

    I’ll take one long-sleeve T, one short-sleeve T, and a coffee mug, please.

  11. BigDogMom says:

    Like them all, good choices for graphics on the t-shirts.

    I’m an all white long sleeve kinda gal…most of, if not all my t-shirts are white, white goes with everything in my book. But don’t go by me…I dress very simply.

    Love the coffee cup….can’t wait to order it!

      The Dr. Seuss Parody is a long sleeve white shirt.

      It’s easy to mix and match colors and styles with each design so if you see something you like, we can customize it.

  12. javaz says:

    Love them all!

    I’d like to suggest bumper stickers and the plastic decals that adhere to windows or glass.

    We would place the plastic decals on the interior windows of our vehicles, including the interior windows of our camper trailer.
    We’re not bumper sticker people, especially since we have fairly new vehicles.

    Also, I think they’re rather cheap to produce, and you could sell them for a couple bucks each and make a nice profit!
