The expensive way is cheaper!

I saw an ad on the side of a Tram a couple of weeks ago for a web site called http://www.foghorn.com.au, that allows you to design and buy t-shirts on-line. It's only got a limited selection of fonts and pictures (more like symbols) but it's an Australian site so I figured that it would be cheaper than doing a CafePress shopping run.

So, I designed a t-shirt that I wanted, and was thinking about ordering it when I looked at the price, and changed my mind.

A single black t-shirt with only a single piece of plain text on it (the most basic shirt you could get) was $40 ($AUS) plus $7.50 postage. However, one of the shirts I designed on CafePress (plain black t-shirt with my own graphic on it) is listed on the site at $23.99 ($US) and they charge $7 postage for the first item (successive items are cheaper). $30.99 ($US) is less than $36.50 ($AUS) so if I want any thing like that it's actually cheaper to design them up on CafePress and get them that way.

So, as a result I am planning on doing a CafePress run in the near future. My CafePress is at http://www.cafepress.com/randomreality, and there are lots of other CafePress stores with lots and lots of nifty items so have a look around and let me know if you want anything. Be aware that multiple items bought from different CafePress shops count as a single order for the purposes of postage.

Also, if you have any basic custom designs I can probably make them myself. Anything that requires real artistic ability will need additional help that I can't provide. :)

I'll send you an e-mail with some stuff.

Btw, does your company need any UAT Testers?

Unfortunately not. I'll keep you in mind if we need any though.

Have you considered the guy who was doing t-shirts at Conquest last year? He makes to order and paints them all with an airbrush, so they are always one-offs. His website is http://www.airbrushnow.com.au The t-shirts are only about $10 I think, plus the artwork.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
