I've no idea if you're open to ideas for new t-shirt designs, but while watching LGG and the Ice Cream Man just now I found myself thinking 'hm, I'd pay a chunking great wodge of cash for a t-shirt with that on the front', and it seemed like a good idea to tell you, rather than just hoping you'd pick up on the psychic vibes. Or something.

The piccie in question is:

The Gerbil.

(PS, yes, I will be ordering one of the existing designs anyway, so feel free to utterly disregard this post! smile.gif )
Mata
Hmm... Fair point, that is a pretty good image isn't it?

Well, there's actually a new LGG design coming out very soon anyway which will make a total of three designs featuring the bonnie gothic lass, so I think that next time I make a design it will probably be of Mr Snaffleburger (either the Corporation logo or just a plain 'CONFORM CONSUME OBEY' text design).

The trouble is that whenever I get a new design made I try to get it printed in as many sizes as I can so there will be something to fit pretty much everyone which makes the whole process extremely expensive. Essentially what I'm saying is that I'd love to make that design but I can't afford it. I've just emptied my coffers to pay for the site's hosting charge for the next year which was rather a lot of money too!

you need more mr. snaffleburger t-shirts. he's slowly replacing mittens as the #1 character on matazone and so there should be more than 1 t-shirt of him. you could have 'conform consume obey' written all over the t-shirt with him in the middle or something like that.... (trails off, runs away, hides in corner)
TheGerbil
Fair enough - I eagerly await the new design! smile.gif

Please please please follow up on the CONFORM CONSUME OBEY t-shirt idea.

I'm being forced to take a class in corporate law and it makes me want to poke my eyes out with a rusty fork.

At least wearing the shirt proudly would give me 1/2 of a second of peace of mind.

I can picture a plain black t-shirt with 'conform consume obey' written across it in white. I would buy it if I happened to have money. Of course, cruel Fate has decided to make me penniless. dry.gif Stoopid Fate.

great ideas all of you i agree you should make more t-shirts but....i dont have any ideas because im an uncreative lazy bum. hows about you put a big picture of my face on one of them? hehehe...but if you dont have enough money then maybe you should uh....well if you dont want ads then i guess the only solution is to raise t-shirt prices but i dont want you to get any ideas about that either...hmmmmm.......ahhh i dont like this now im confused you must go through this every day........ dry.gif
Mata
The borderland between what I would like to do and what I can afford is a wide space indeed unfortunately. The t-shirts really do just go to paying to keep the site running and I can't resist spending any extra profit on getting new designs made. I really should try and pay myself some money so that I can pay the rent more easily...

I think that black t-shirts with the plain white C.C.C. print will be next on my list of things to get made... Now to sell lots of the new LGG design (which should be arriving at my house today) so that I can afford to get them made!

Yep, confusion and busy-ness is my daily state. huh.gif
witchblade_babe
you should have "ooo... bouncy walls!!!" bwhahaha and me is know many friends that would buy it too yep yep tis a good idea i say ^-^ biggrin.gif wink.gif smile.gif tongue.gif (can you tell i like the smilies yet? laugh.gif laugh.gif biggrin.gif tongue.gif wink.gif wink.gif tongue.gif cool.gif rolleyes.gif blink.gif lol how bout now?)
gerbilfromhell
this might just be my cynical way of looking at life but somehow i doubt the generosity of your viewers will not keep your site running for more than another few months and then you will have to resort to popups. don't get me wrong, i'm glad you're keeping this site popup free but if i had to choose between closing annoying popups or having matazone close down, i'd choose to have popups, however evil and annoying they are.

Signed t-shirts?

how bout Mata just sells us plain white t-shirts. with nothing on them.

then we can buy markers and just color on them instead...
LoLo
Maybe just do plain old tie dye shirts, it's what kept the hippies going.

I dono Gerbil, I think that as more and more people visit Mata's site, there will always be new people to buy tshirts. With popularity, sales can only increase, not decrease. ::sigh:: If only we could find Mata a rich rich sponser.
gerbilfromhell
ok fine. i'm making a poll to see how fast sales will increase because i don't think the site grows as fast as you're making it seem it does
NoName4444
::blinks:: And that poll would tell you....

Mata already gets over 1000 hits a day, now we're shooting for 2000. It's growth is expotential, as more people start visiting, they will of course love Mata's work and tell their friends. It's like some freaky fibonacci sequence. Still, it doesn't really matter. Mata know's what he's doing, and he's doing it. ph34r.gif
gerbilfromhell
i know that but how many people who like matazone actually took the time to buy a t-shirt? i'm not asking if you've visited or like matazone, i'm asking if you bought a t-shirt. somehow i think that number (if people are honest) will be less than you think (though not really low). i know mata knows what he's doing, otherwise the site wouldn't be around now, i'm just wondering if many people who would buy a t-shirt are always saying 'someone else will buy it if i don't' or 'i'll buy it later'
craziness
i would love a tshirt with a screen shot of the mr sb max cat snoboarding. and you can make it in white on cafe press! the mr sb max tshirts should be white, theyd look bad if they were black. besides, i dont understand the hatred of white some people have.white is not a bad color. it did not do anything to you. you may prefer black, and i do prefer black, but i love white as well.
lilasylum
ello eveybody, witchblade_babe had a great idea, bouncy wall shirt would be awsome sometime in the future, and yea u got a lotta LGG shirts... but still it'd be awsome. that's it for now, need caffine ph34r.gif adios

Actually I think that was The Gerbil, not Gerbilfromhell. Either way still cool to have this bumped, although I don't know if Mata can use the ideas.

I seriously would buy a shirt if I wasn't 14 and didn't live in Canada and had a Credit Card. But sadly, I'm 14, live in Canada and have no Credit Card. *cries* Good luck anyways.

You'll be waiting for a bit longer yet, I've not got a lot of money at the moment and if a couple of people I've done jobs for don't pay me soon then I'm going to be in some very serious problems by the end of this month!
Sir Maxerpopple
Rob them! I need more snaffleburger!

POLO! You just read my MIND! :-D I would SO buy that if you, Mata, made it ohmy.gif

This calls for immediate and unrepentant sex-based celebrations!
Mata
Sorry, but the chances of me making that T-shirt are pretty much zero, come on, I'm not about to make something that would most likely increase sexual harassment by tenfold for those wearing it!
