Only a few left

Only a couple left.  Get yours before they're gone.  Contact me for details.

Ready For Orders

Okay, I am ready to take orders.  As soon as I have enough orders to fill up the first batch of shirts, I will have the shirts made.  The shirts will be the Sugar Skull for girls (ladies' cut in purple) and the Big Logo (standard T in kelly green).  I know a lot of you have emailed and texted me what you want, but I would like to start the orders over from scratch so that I know I have accurate numbers.  It is first come first serve with this first batch and numbers are limited.  As the orders fill up, I will try to keep the numbers posted on this site so you know how many are left.  You can place orders either by emailing me @, texting me if you have the number, or commenting on this site.  After the shirts are made, I will take payment either by check, cash, or credit (over the phone).   I am trying to get paypal set up for this site as well.

There other designs and things beside shirts available now on my cafe press site at  There is a link to the right.  If you want one of the shirts that I am selling on this site, go through me.  It will be cheaper.

Site Settings

Sorry folks, I didn't realize that the site was set to only take comments from registered users.  That has been corrected.  Now anyone can comment.

Results are in!

The results are in from the polls and I have made the final decision.  The two shirts that will be produced first are the Sugar Skull, and the Big Logo.  I don't know whether or not the first batch will be available in multiple colors or multiple style shirts.  I will post as soon as I do.  The first batch will be made sometime in August as the start-up costs are high. 
As of today, the costs for the shirts will be $15 each.  If my cost for kids' sizes is less, I will lower the cost of those shirts.  Because there seems to be a problem with posting on this site, please let me know if you have any questions via either email, text, or on Facebook. 
If you were looking forward to a different design then the two that will come first, please be patient.  I am trying to avoid having to take money up-front before the shirts have been made, and this has slowed the process a bit.  If you are interested in one of the two being made, let me know as soon as possible.  I put the size polls up to get a general idea about sizes to order, but if you tell me specifically which size you need, I will order that.  If not, I will order a few of the sizes that I think will be needed, and hope that everyone gets what they want.  
Unless I get requests for more, I will only be making about ten of each design to start with.  and I already have orders for eight of the Sugar Skull shirts and six of the Big Logo shirts.  I will be placing the order in the first half of August, so now is the time to let me know.
Thanks for all of your help during the "market research" phase.  I can't wait for the next step.

Coming Soon ... Hats!

This is a prototype hat that I made.  Let me know if this is something you might be interested in.  The price for hats will most likely be $20 for front logo only, and $25 with customized text on the back.  Hats will be flex-fit and available in different sizes and colors.

The Next Step

A lot of you have been asking when the shirts will be ready.  Soon.  If everything goes according to plan, the first two designs should be ready for purchase before the end of August.  I just need a little more input from you before we go into production mode.  First of all, the ladies' tee has been chosen, and it will be the Sugar Skull shirt.
The mens' tee is still up for grabs, but has been narrowed down to three.  I have cleaned up the designs a little, see below for images of all four shirts.  As a reminder, please note that shirts that appear on the black template will only be available in black.  The shirts that appear on a grey or blue background will be available in different colors.  Also please note that the shirt template I am using is just that, a template.  The cut of the shirt (especially the ladies') will be different.
Please look at the images and vote in the polls.

Shirt Designs

Soon, I will be launching a test of a new line for Vanilla Gorilla Ink.  I am looking for some feedback to help me decide which designs to begin with.  Please take a closer look at the shirt designs below.  I appreciate any comments, however please make them constructive.  "I love it" and "I hate it" are equally unhelpful.  Feel free to make suggestions for changes, additions, or eliminations.  If you want to post anonymously, that's fine, but please leave your age and gender with your post.  Also, please take the poll on this page (full version) to vote for your favorites.  Thanks for your help.
