Just in time for this week’s Bricks by the Bay convention taking place in Santa Clara, only a short drive south from Ka-GO HQ, I’m proud to announce that I’ll be selling this first series of Ka-GO t-shirts. Click on the thumbnails below for an enlarged view. I’m currently working on a Store / Merch section for online orders, so check back soon if you need that sort of thing. Otherwise, if you’re familiar with ordering via places like BrickLink, you can comment below stating you want one (or more) and I’ll follow up via email to get the details of your order, follow up with an invoice, and do the deed via PayPal.
I’ll eventually be charging $16 for them, plus the requisite $5 for domestic USPS Priority Mail and $10 for international shipping. (Sorry, but sweatshop free shirts aren’t cheap…and I like to think the design work is worth a little somethin’ somethin’ too.) However, to reward the…what…maybe three of you who actually read this blog at this early stage in the game, I’ll offer you the shirt $17 postage paid in the U.S. to anyone who comments by Friday, March 25 at 2:00am. (International folks, it’ll be a little less than $22 total for orders outside the U.S.) Even if you’re not interested in ordering one, I’d still love to get your feedback below. Thanks folks!
“Skull & Crossbones” – My simple homage to FOL pirates, rockers, metalheads, and evil masters of the universe everywhere.
“Bricks &” in Black – I’ve always appreciated this t-shirtism, especially when typeset correctly in the proper weight of Helvetica. What can I say? I’m a design and wordplay nerd. Guaranteed to have strangers asking, “What’s that mean?” It’s up to you whether or not you’re ready to tell them the truth. Heh.
“Bricks &” in Heather Grey – The same as the above in Heather Grey. I’ve always been into this texture, for some reason, even though I hated P.E. in high school.
All of the Unisex S, M, L, Women’s M, and Women’s L versions of the above shirts are printed on American Apparel, which means they’re made in the U.S. and reportedly sweatshop free. The Unisex XL and 2XL versions are printed on Fruit of the Loom. All designs are printed in Oakland, CA.
