64D T-shirts

acid suggested that 64D make t-shirts and have people wear them to promote the site. He said we should use this as a way to generate money, but didn't explicitly say to sell the shirts, so I'm not sure how this would help make money.

But that's why he's the marketing genius, and I'm just the guy who keeps spelling genius as genious.

Anyway, this is totally not going to happen, but I think a solid coloured crimson 64D logo (we don't really have an official one) would look cool on the front of a black t-shirt. And on the back, written across the upper back in white text, would just be some slogan. There could be a handful of different shirts with different slogans.

"Driven by lazyness"

"Member ID #2"

"Hand coded in front of a live audience"

And so on. Basically a collection of "64D memes" (I just heard you grind your teeth and cringe) and sub-banner text (I don't know what it's called).

The idea of 64D apparel has been around for like 8 years, but I thought I'd bring this idea up, to see if anyone would actually be interested in a shirt from 64D (I will not make one, but my ego will feel good), and what you think would be cool.

I'm game. Cafepress is best, as far as I know.

I'm not gonna lie, I'd probably buy one.

I'd get one.

But I'd want white. Or grey. Not black.

Some of my best shirts are black, Eagly.

If I had enough money, I would buy one for every day of the week.

Get a girlfriend, buy her a dozen.

Get pictures of her wearing them, and use them to market the site.

ALL MY SHIRTS ARE BLACK.

I also have some black friends, so I can say that.

"Your beloved leader is number two"

a rip-off of the Futurama quote.
Between Futurama and the Simpsons, there's too many good lines to not be stolen.

But yeah, I remember seeing that on Futurama AFTER seeing it under the banner here, and I was like "THEY STOLE THAT FROM- oh, wait…"

I'd get them from Printfection, myself, but it sounds like an interesting idea. Also we could ID each other at conventions with them.

That beats my idea of getting on the closest intercom and shouting

"If anyone from 64Digits.com is here, meet me in front of the really crappy anime booth next to the shitty Superman display!"

That wouldn't really narrow down your location at all, anyway.
