Finally…I can say some more 🙂 and that’s, “They’re here!”
16 august 2018
Finally got an actual sample on Tuesday the 14th that I could say “Go Ahead” to! (See above.) I’m guesstimating I’ll have the actual patches within 10 days from now. The price will revert back to $7.00 (shipped) each once that happens.
I have been itching to share this design since I first sketched it out, but now that it’s “In Production,” I finally can!
It sure would make a great license plate, as illustrated above (courtesy of Photoshop®) but how perfect will this simple 3” x 2” embroidered Velco-backed patch look on your Politically-Correct campus this Fall?
Or, if college life is wa-a-ay back in the rearview mirror, how ’bout just seeing it in the neighborhood, say on your (burly, martial-arts trained) older-kids’ backpacks for that always memorable First-Day-of-School? And talk about “Sparking a conversation” at the next family reunion or City Council meeting…
I think you can begin to picture the funtimes ahead.
Regardless of the venue, I’m certain you’ll find plenty of folks who’ll agree with the sentiment:
Can’t we just hang the lot of ‘em?
How to Order
All prices include USA shipping! (OnceI have the patches in hand and they’re ready-to-ship shipping, so for new orders the price is will go back to$7.00 each, shipped.) See the specially-priced “USA – EKG” HERE that’s noted in the order form below.
Of course the United States Space Force (much less it having an actual “Academy”) will never happen. Honestly I don’t care. The fact that on June 18th, 2018, President Trump dared declare such a thing it at all is what makes it so amazing and so logical (as Spock would say).
I came-of-age seeing “2001: A Space Odyssey” on a Cinerama screen in 1968 in West Hartford, Connecticut, so Trump certainly saw that same mind-blowing, feels like you are riding in an earth-to-moon shuttle flick, too, just that he was somewhere near his New York City home. And while I sat mesmerized in front of a modest black & white TV for the original Star Trek episodes as they aired, forced to practice Patience, week by week, Trump likely watched them all, too, only in brilliant color on a luxury-model TV. (I’ve gotta Thank God the only network my family’s aerial could pick up just “happened” to be NBC.)
Like me, as the 70’s became the 80’s, then the 90’s, Trump probably assumed the U.S. would get back to sending men to the moon until we had some sort of “colony” there, before at least making a vow to go beyond our moon. It was enormously disappointing when we didn’t, so I think this “Space Force” fiction is Trump’s attempt to inject life into and turn the 20th century’s version of The American Space-Conquering Dream into a 21st century Space-Warrior dream.
They’re here and I’ve started shipping out the first paid orders!
USA-EKG is my first foray into the battle of the embroidered “morale patch.” It’s going into production……as we speak, so to speak.Link HERE to get the details and find and use the contact-form to request yours.
Order a t-shirt and get $2.00 off a patch by noting, “I just ordered a t-shirt so give me the SPECIAL Patch Price” in the USA-EKG’s Special Request area!
One man’s Freedom-fighter is another’s Evil-Christian-colonizer…these two researchers are very accesible (Robert Spencer and J. Stephen Roberts) if you’d like to get a more accurate history of the lead-up-to and prosecution-of The Crusades.
Here, in a nutshell, is why Islam must be opposed.
One man’s Faith is another’s Folly…except for Islam, which is the slow suicide-of-The-West cut by cut by 33,306 cuts (since 9-11 alone) and which will be our utter and forever extinction, unless enough of us wake up.
This was one-of-two designs I made on the subject of what to do with tyrants, back in late 2015. The other version (see below) “won” a spot in my Etsy shop (which never got traction because I’m very bad/lazy at marketing).
I really prefer more symmetrical (and less wordy) designs, so I decided to resurrect this and polish it up. I’m going to “strongly suggest” an on-the-back of the shirt placement, as the graphic is 15-inches tall.
While it’s also nice on a pure white shirt, I can’t really recommend that choice. As a practical alternative (i.e. a shirt you can wear more than 15 minutes without somehow, someway attracting some “thing” – coffee? salsa? – to fly towards you and make a splotch in the worst possible place) I’ve found a really nice Bella+Canvas 3001 super pale grey shirt I’ll offer especially for this design.
(Yup. My “stain repelling color theory” is magical-thinking, I admit it.)
I quit adding new designs to my Teespring shop because “I Heart Puppies” is the only sort of thing I’m 100% confident they won’t suspend. I put designs up here to escape Big Brother…and yes, at the same sorts of prices shirts sell for there. (I totally agree: $25.00+ is a LOT for “just” a t-shirt and so getting this right is a big deal all around.)
Well, in my zeal to save-a-buck/make-a-buck, I literally made what I consider the biggest mistake possible and I did it in my very first official week of business!
I broke the first of The Two Fundamental Laws: “Do all you have agreed to do,” because added to that guarantor of personal integrity, in the mind of a business person, ought to always be the phrase, “At the price agreed upon, come Hell or high-water.”
For a moment last night I completely forgot that this independent t-shirt endeavor was supposed to be primarily about the joy in “Free Expression.” (Beyond that, if I cleared enough to buy a few bags of Black Rifle Coffee® now and again, all the better!)
I have sincerely apologized to the client I treated in error and hope to be given the opportunity to make the situation right. Regardless of the avenue they choose, from this point forward I’ll absorb the fluctuating costs of the “raw materials” (t-shirts) without mention (yes, as I should have already done…) until it becomes clear it’s time to raise the prices stated on each design’s page.
I thank-you sincerely for any past support and again, I hope you’ll bear with me while I continue to figure this all out!
