TSP Gear Shop is coming back
« on: October 20, 2012, 07:31:40 AM »
We will be launching a new TSP Gear Shop in the next few weeks.  Right now we are working designs and item selection as well as building the new site. 

I wanted to get some initial feedback on one of the first layouts.  Would folks be interested in T-shirts, stickers and maybe patches with the following artwork:

Pretty cool art work.  I wouldn't get anything with it, but only because that's not my style.  I'm more of a grey man.

Will the old ant hat still be available?

There will likely be a similar hat, and there will definitely be some more subtle, grey man gear.

I'd buy a few of those shirts and stickers!

I hate to be that guy, but is it too late to get the ant to take his finger off the trigger?

Looks like Nick'o is doing some good work.  I was just thinking, they would make very good drink coasters.

I was getting ready to be that guy, so thanks for being that guy first.  I love that graphic, but I don't want to hear "trigger discipline" from all my range friends if I wear it.  Take the booger hook off the bang switch and I'll buy a bunch of stuff with that design on it.

Damn... how did I miss that!  We will remedy that ASAP.  Would anyone want these on a Pint Glass?

Very excited to hear the gear shop will be coming back online. As far as the design goes, I too am more of a sublte person. Looks good though otherwise.

 Maybe just my opinion, but I'd remove the gun completely. To those who aren't of the prepper mindset, all they will see is "gun" and "revolution", and possibly get the entirely wrong idea as to what TSP is all about.

It's past time (ok...waaaaay past) to retire my Spuds MacKenzie glasses anyway, so I'd get a set of the pints as long as they are not plastic, but glass like these... ;D
FYI, this is not my photo. My main computer with my camera software is down so I can't upload a pic of mine. 
I have 8 glasses and the Spuds glass beer pitcher.  Gotta love those college days...

Great work, Cartpusher, but not my style either.  I'd be looking for the listening guy like it is, in about a 3"x3" sticker.  Maybe in some varying colors like the greys as shown, coyote on black, OD on black, you get the idea. 

It'd also look good on hats, shirts, Euro pint glasses, etc. 

I'd buy some of the above today to show support, open a dialogue, but a little less in-your-face.

I disagree.  Keep the firearm.

As one who wished that I had ordered some gear when the old shop was open, I welcome the chance to buy some TSP merchandise. Will there be other designs as well?

maybe another version for the TSP Convoy/BOVers ;) He could carry a Rifle- Map/compass-Toolbox  you get the idea. I forget where it was but there was a good thread on TSP Convoy sticker/patch designs

I'm in on both or either

great ideas cartpusher.love to see the gear shop come back.
hats /patches with subtle advertising
the t shirt would give you space to explain more, put on more info.explain principles.permaculture.gardening hunting food/water storage.medical preps.personal liberty
i like the darker colors but also the bright colorful graphics.one subtle,one to get attention.
how about one with the ant- grass hopper fable.
great ideas.thanks 8)

I'd be up for some pint glasses, this design with the gun and maybe some clothing items with a more subdued theme as well.

Woohoo bring back the bottle openers also. My graphics are starting to chip away on mine. Also +1 on bringing it back. Looking forward to a bumper sticker and maybe a t-shirt or hat.

I agree with keeping the gun.  I'd also add nightvision....but I'm not too worried what the sheeple think.

IMHO it looks childish. Cartoonish even.  I think the audience is more serious.

I don't know about everybody else, but I have things in my life that are serious and thing that aren't ... and that extends to ballcaps and t-shirts.  Also, it's a well done graphic so na-nana-poopoo.

Don't worry, we will have some more serious looking things for you.
