Just in time for chrimbo we’re finally lifting the lid on the Cafepress RiotACT online merch stand. They make it to order, we get a cut, you get luvverly rioty stuff delivered to your door.

We’ll be changing the specials over on a regular basis to incorporate all your witty ideas and letting you know when it happens.

And because it’s mostly in white you’ll need lots or risk looking grubby.

Do you really want to be the last one on your block sporting ironic RiotACT branding?

No, I didn’t think so.

What's Your Opinion?

Welll..yeah, they probably do. However, it’s not as though they need you to do a run of thousands. Pretty poor form I reckon to snub the local options.

Because local firms probably want to do a run of the merch. Cafepress prints as the orders arrive.

Why didn’t you use a local company? Back in the early 1800s when I still played in a band, we got all sorts of merch made right here in Canberra…t-shirts, stubby holders, cd wallets, even g-strings!

Are Nigel and Johnboy going to present a free “My grandchildren were appalled” hoodie to Margaret of Ainslie?

It seems only fair.

Is there 1 with VY’s “I only belive in gay marriage if both chicks are hot?”?

It made the Times afterall!

Are there any witty ones?

Of course, one could just take one’s favourite poolroom quote, nick the logo, and go make up a Remo one! ‘cept they’re a tad pricey. Nice but.

Actually a lot of the items come in a variety of colours, just have a play.

I’m a little stunned by the variety! I figured we’d see a few shirts, maybe a cap, a coffee mug – but wow, there’s a wide range there.

Some more variety in colour might encourage a few more sales. I don’t wear white either (unless I’m playing cricket!).

Anyway, nice community building stuff. See how it goes. All the best with the sales.

What a curious concept. Why would I want to wear a Riot Act T-shirt or hoodie? What next? A clothing range by “The Canberra Chronicle”? “City News” merchandise?

they are really ordinary. and no colour choices. I dont wear white.

*** actually can’t read what’s on the pictures at all on my screen.***

well, you ain’t missing anything… the worst – ever

I really like the idea of RiotACT gear, and would buy a shirt or something myself, except all the designs look so….nerdy. Like the sort of shirts that an IT Sys Admin would wear. A lot of it has to do with the RiotACT logo which is fine for a website, but not so crash hot on a t-shirt I think. Not necessarily suggesting a new logo or anything (though it may not be such a bad idea), but maybe a design competition could be made for the clothing line, and the winner gets a free t-shirt or something. I would give it a crack anyway…

gunghalin al, you could buy a plain one and print your own…

mebbe i should do that; all those suggestions and none used – hrmph! ; )

rosebud rosebud 6:58 pm 26 Nov 08

Hmmm, any recommendations for the scrag elite to wear for the races?

Throw a blazer over later for country club mingling.

Yeah right…know your audience.

Look good. Disappointed none of my proposed slogans got up. Will buy but.

GA – are you a Queenslander but?

When you have your ad exec position filled, will a graphic designer be next on the list?

Holden Caulfield Holden Caulfield 4:50 pm 26 Nov 08

Womensware? Mensware? Kidsware?

Men swear by Ken Cook. 😉

Unfortunately Cafepress being a US company has no concept of what a stubby holder is. I live in hope.

Or i’ll just sort out some from another source and give them away to lucky punters who turn up to RiotACT events 🙂
