Will You Buy It?


I'm thinking about making a couple new t shirts to add to my store (click the store at top right of page if you don't know about the store)

I wanted to make one for girls and one for guys. I've noticed that girls don't buy as many cartoon t shirts as guys though. So before I actually print these (this isn't quite finished) I'd like to get an idea of how many people might actually buy one. Christmas is right around the corner! If you think so, put a comment and say what size you need, so I can calculate my minimum order before going ahead and printing them.

I'll show you the guy's shirt as soon as I have a facsimile ready.

Thanks!

Your best curmudgeon,
John

P.S. Would you rather just have the image on the shirt, or also some kinda catch phrase in fancy-ass lettering? I was thinking of "Cartoons Rock" which sounds mundane enough.

I was hoping this _was_ the guy's shirt. :(

I would by it if I wasn't a boy...
maybe instead of "cartoons rule", you could put "Vincent Waller was here"

Love. What more can I say?

I'd only buy a T-shirt as long as it's super incredibly mega ultra John K. quality.

A version of the logo might fit nicely on the lower left.

I love it!!!
But maybe a different color than pink for the T-shirt.:)

Hi Steffi, you can have one for free (If I print them).

I am looking at another color than pink, but I don't know if I can please everyone. So many girls seem to want pink everything. I'd rather do something different if the girls agree.

Actually if you changed the black lines on some of the characters to a lighter color -brown- it might be nice. I usually default to that for my neutrals. I'm a girl.. by the way. LoL

I may have to delete the comments that don't say whether you want a shirt or not, just so I can count those who do, so please don't take offense...

Remember these are girls' shirts, fitted to the female anatomy, so they won't fit around a boy very well.

I would buy a girl's shirt, but with image only. If there were words I wouldn't want it.

Unless of course, he's a hermaphrodite.

Seeing this for girls, pink would work. I might go with that color thinking I might get some for some girls at college. "Cartoons Rock" sounds a bit too dry, no offense.

I want to buy a shirt with all of your "beautiful people" caricatures on it.

I think a "John K." signature would be better than the caption. But, I'm not a girl.

Personally I would go for just the image. A catchphrase would kind of kill it in my opinion, unless it was good or funny. Actually "Cartoons Rock" sounds pretty cool.

At the stores I work in, I've seen a lot of good shirts but the word phrases kill the look of it, because they're extremely cheesy (then again, it's Disney).

Color wise, I would say go for some happy and soft tones if you're aiming for more than pink. Even brown can look girly. But that's just me. Pink and garish colors don't really agree with me.

But to get to the point, yes I will buy it! In fact, I think I'll look around your store and start shopping. I just hope I don't mess up and get the wrong size for me.

If you can do this on a black shirt, totally.

Luke said...

Does it come with the breasts? I would buy a boy version of this kind of shirt. Personaly, no catchphrase.

Marc said...

Don't do any type, keep it simple. Looks dope, can't wait to see the guys T! John, the store often doesn't work?

Moldy Tangerine said...

I would buy a shirt.

no phrase.

Willow Polson said...

YES. OH MY GOD. But I want it with a big ol' John K. signature, no catch phrase, and NOT pink or white please? Small or Medium. I'm going to tell all my geek girl friends when this is ready for sale, seriously.

I'll take one, when are they going on sale?
