Response to this little project continues to blow me away! Thank you for your ideas, your donations, and your support. Here's the news:
As if she wasn't already Queen of the World and Heroine to us All, Elizabeth Warren gave us all something to be proud of this week. There's nothing better than a battle cry that comes straight from the enemy. As you may have seen, this is the first design so far that you can actually purchase as a shirt via Redbubble. My hope is to migrate more of the designs there in the future. One of the plusses of Redbubble is that you can purchase postcards and prints from them directly, which I've heard would be easier for some of you. You can also get the designs on coffee mugs, laptop cases, and more. Never fear, Printer Owners, free PDF downloads will also remain available.
The proceeds from these shirts (~5-8 dollars, depending on the item) will go straight to Elizabeth Warren's Senate Campaign. It looks like we're already close to $100 in donations in less than 24 hours!
New Designs and Updates
I've been a little flooded with ideas for designs and improvements-- keep them coming! Three new designs are live (Call to Complain, Majority, and Proud Snowflake). All of these came from your suggestions! Additionally I fixed a broken link on Facts are Nonpartisan, Nation of Immigrants came down because it was problematic, and I made grammatical/spelling corrections to Pizza and the Withhold Consent Valentine.
Thank you so much for your ideas, your corrections, your broken link scouting, etc. Thanks also for your patience. I'm just an amateur doing this for fun in my free time, so I really appreciate your encouragement and support!
I'm blown away by the response this little project has received over the last 24 hours. Thank you for using these designs, and thank you for sharing them with your friends!
Here are a few updates:
As you may have seen, we have already blown right past my original goal of $120. Transparency is critical to me, so here's what I did with the money:
If this project receives $500 in total donations, I will use the money to start a short run on t-shirts of the most popular design (that makes sense for a t-shirt, of course). My idea is that half the proceeds from shirts could be reinvested into additional prints/shirts and the other half could be donated to Indivisible (which is now an official non-profit!).
Of course, if you have a better idea, let me know in the comments.
I don't have all the kinks worked out, and it seems like the buttons and designs get mismatched sometimes. I'm working on a more graceful permanent solution. In the meantime, if you run into a problem (wrong design is downloading, or a link isn't working) please let me know in the form at the bottom of the page. Which leads me to...
Thanks to everyone who has submitted design ideas! I am working on them and promise to make everything I feasibly can. Some of you have remarkable imaginations, and since I'm really not an illustrator, not everything is possible-- BUT, I will try to get the messages across in designs I can muster.
Finally, while I have no list setup yet, if you're interested in getting an update when new designs are released, let me know here:
Thanks again for your support, your ideas, and your resistance!
