Eh...at the huge cost of the "on-demand" printing I'm not making much per shirt, so it would have to be volume, volume, volume!  I have done a lot of shirts up over the years for myself and really need to start marketing them.  Any money made is going to be set aside so that, hopefully, I can do pre-printed runs of shirts in the future...I can cut the price AND make more money that way.

I knew a RPI alumn who spoke of a tute screw: no matter which way you turn it it goes in.

All we need is to put on batwings, open the snakes' mouths, and put long, nasty fangs in them, and the new caduceus will be perfect!

OOPS!  Email outbound.

Although “non” is considered proper, both are actually acceptable.  My use of the “nil” variant was due to the essay linked below by Dr. Milton R Wolf, a cousin of Barack Obama, who utilized the “nil” variant while addressing the health care reform bill.


There is madness to my method :)

YESSS!!! That's it!!! Where do I buy???

Just got it up Crotalus...I apologize for the price but "on demand" printing on dark shirt is $$$!!  If you would like it on white or lighter colors, I will be putting up a version or each which will work on a light background...there is a little bit more work involved in getting them to look right.

Forgot to mention...it will drop the price around $5 I think.  When they print on a dark shirt it's a two step process where they print a white base and then the image, on lighter colors they don't have to do the first step so it is significantly less expensive.  All in all, I get 10% from each shirt which is not much but since I also don't have to front any money and eat shirts that don't sell, I'm not complaining either.  I just wish it were less expensive to the consumer...which includes me!

Okay...last changes!  Both designs should now look fine on any color and can be put on anything from a hoodie to a onesie!  http://zazzle.com/revgreg will get you there...product links may have changed.  Thanks again Kevin and everyone here, not retiring anytime soon!

Putting the design on a white T-shirt drops the price to $16.95 and they have a white "value" shirt which is only $12.95.  I'm not sure of the quality of the "value" shirt, it's a 5.5oz. shirt which isn't tragic but they don't give a brand.
