Thinking about bringing back the Black Friday-specific t-shirts to give away again this year. As with most non-essential site "features" though, I might have to find someone who'd be willing to help out with the packaging/shipping though as that can take up a lot of time, something I don't have much of to spare during BF season. I'll keep everyone updated though...

If they come back, we're probably going to stick to the same "slogan" on the back since everyone really seemed to love those. It'll look a little different though and I'm trying to think of something nice for the front. Something like "Black Friday Elite Shopper" or something like that. I don't want to just have the site name/logo like the old shirts. Any ideas for the front?

I like the "Black Friday Elite Shopper" or maybe something like "Official GottaDeal Trained Black Friday Shopper". We have to get the GottaDeal in there somewhere this site is amazing we have to spread the news :)

here's a quick idea i put together (front/back):

Posted Image Posted Image

keep in mind that since these shirts will be given away (i.e. FREE!), they aren't going to be too fancy - just a single color printing, and i'll have to cram the GD name/logo in there somewhere to get some advertising, so...

let me know what you think about the design above and how you would change it.

I LOVE the cart! I do not know why but it makes me smile :) I also like the blue and white if they were the colors you were thinking of going with. Overall, I think it looks great...wouldn't change a thing!

I like the design and can also help with shipping/packaging if needed. I'm thinking maybe "black friday" and "elite" should be larger than the rest of the words but I'm not good with design and current wording wouldn't work/allow for that.

Even in one color you could have flames coming out of the back of the shopping cart - oh, and the cart doing a wheelie! LOL

I am more than willing to help. Let me know. I can probably get a deal set up with a local pack & ship place that I used to moonlight at.

I am more than willing to help as well. Just let me know. Also, how about also selling them to those who are unable to win one? Just an idea to help defry some of the cost. But, seriously, if you need and/or want my help with packaging, feel free to contact me anytime. :)

i dont know about the cost aspect but maybe have the gottadeal logo on one of the sleeves (that way you get all angles out there); also maybe add to the back that the site is open year round...could just put it below the slogan and say "open year round' or something like that, otherwise i LOVE this design, and i wear mine i got a few years back proudly every black friday, would love to get an updated one)!!!

If it's possible, I agree with puttin' the site logo on one or both of the sleeves. If it doesn't fit well, how 'bout just the circle logo (circle with 'GD' inside it)?

They'll likely be one color. It's tough enough having the correct sizes for everyone so I don't want to add color variables to the mix.

As for if you'll be able to buy them, it will depend on how many I order. I like giving them away because it encourages people to participate in the various contests and other things we do these next few months, but I might be able to set some aside for purchase.

It won't be for a couple of weeks. The BF part of the site still isn't "officially" open yet.

For the front, how about "Elite Shopping Crew"? And for the back, glad to see that my slogan lives on! ;) I guess I'm not a Marketing Director for nuthin'! ;)
