T-Shirts, Mugs?
« on: January 09, 2019, 09:26:16 pm »
Medicineman, Codaina/Crowcopelli, and others have suggested that they would like T-Shirts and Mugs.  Here are some ideas.

Let us know what you think. We could do this if there was interest. Thoughts? Suggestions?

They could actually be good conversation starters, and you might find others around you who also enjoy making music. (Sorry if you've seen these same pictures elsewhere on the forum. I posted these first on one of MedicineMan's posts but then thought that this news section might be a better spot.)

We're also working with Harley Davidson to produce a special Coda edition of the 2019 Sportster, but pictures aren't available yet. ;)

Hi All!     Mr Karl....if you are posting again that means you are recovering well from your back so youll be sprinting uphill and playing coda going downhill  ;D Good for you!

OK, If I could place my order now Ill go for tshirt #3....just because as a hiker that logo looks awesome!   So kudos to the graphic designer....dare I say Roderick and co.   Great job you guys! I will wear that with pride on each and every hike! It is a very attractive design and Im sure people would inquire about it.  My second option is tshirt #2....quite frankly I would purchase them both!   As for a mug......not sure....I would prefer instead merchandise like those magnetic type decals to put on my car.  This type of decals do not damage the car paint, are long lasting and easy to move around if you change your mind about placement.  So for the magnetic type decal #3 & #1 color black/white.  How about useful merchandise withbthe coda logo ie. cell phone rings or seamless multifunctional headwear similar to the buff brand ....these things are so useful; you can use them as neck warmers, bandanas, even as handkerchiefs.....but with the coda #3 logo and orange background or a blue one? Ill buy Ill buy it!

Sign me up in XL.

If you do the top picture with small Coda logo/symbol on chest put a big one on the back.

And if you can maybe also offer the Coda logo/symbol in black/yellow like on the site.

I would also love a t-shirt. you can count me in for (1) in the XL size if you are taking count for sizes. I like Picture # 3 as well. I don't think I would get a mug, but I am notorious for dropping things :o

Thanks for taking his link out of my post.  I didn't think about it being preserved when I quoted him.

Well, we ran into a little problem with amazon merch t-shirts that set us back some weeks. 

After initially accepting our t-shirt designs, they began to reject them out of fear that we were borrowing someone's copyrighted designs. They were protecting us from ourselves :), which is good but was also frustrating. As a result, I had to appeal and demonstrate that my designs were, if fact, "my" original designs.
(I say "my" because here is how I handle graphic arts projects. With the acception of our logo, which I designed personally in a CAD program, I start by first drawing the idea myself. Next, I work closely, via skype screen-sharing, with a skilled graphic artist, like our friend Adolfo, to get a more professional result.  Ideas almost always improve when you collaborate, and the process is tremendously stimulating! Along the way, I'll seek valuable input from my wife Susan, my friend and virtual coworker Roderick, Cliff, and anyone else who might be handy.  No doubt, I'll be asking you all on the forum for your input more and more. And many thanks for the T-shirt feedback you've provided in this thread!!!)

Anyway, Amazon is now convinced that we are who we say we are, so our t-shirts will soon be available.  They only let you upload one new design a day, but we'll soon post a link to the t-shirts when a few more are available.

Jesse, T-shirts will be available in about every imaginable size--for humans, at least.

(To be proactive, we are still researching options for customers from outside our solar system. Amazon Intergalactic is a possibility, but I don't think they offer Prime Shipping to other galaxies. This should come as no surprise to anyone since their clearly stated mission is only to be "earth's most customer-centric company." I guess everybody else can go jump in a lake.;)
