My other whinge is the crappy image sizing and placement on the shirts and crappy shirt quality.
 

I bought some $6 blank "Amazon Essentials" T shirts and they're really nice. Like, ideal. I chimed in on a few places that Amz will see it that I think they should switch. Of course, the Port and Co. blanks they print on probably cost Jeff about 14¢ when he buys a million at a time, so he probably doesn't want to.
 
Which ones?  I'm not thrilled with the port & co shirts we just did. They were okay, but not great, and I had to compromise a lot on colors.   

Also - just got our shirts w/ your logo. They are great and people love the smoke machine ones. I think I will print a bunch for the boat show this year. We learned a bit about the process too and the order of colors. Have a few little glitches but the local guys we are using are just opening back up, so hopefully it will smooth out. I made one for you and it will be packed with your licensing fee and in the mail shortly.

Oh, I wasn't thinking in terms of "Thor" the Marvel superhero if that's what you meant as far as Disney stuff.  It's odd how much infringement stuff I come across through Amazon Merch - I guess they eventually get caught.  Red Bubble is rampant with it, but they do have a lot more products, and most of the sellers seem to actually be designers or illustrators, not grifters who just pump out those unimaginative, humorless things that clog up search results: white type on black, using Arial, Georgia, Campus (or some "college" type font), or even Comic Sans.   Red Bubble's biggest drawback I've seen is their shipping charges.

I would actually go to a site that curated products as sort of a hybrid of the traditional store and the Amazon throw everything in there and let the search engine sort it out. Of course that depends on a curator with taste, but there ought to be value added in someone saying, "Out of all the Stable Genius shirt's I've seen, SFWs is by far the nicest. (it is)"

My other whinge is the crappy image sizing and placement on the shirts and crappy shirt quality.

It should have read "Miller Genuine Draft", a beer that I found consumable, back in 1990 - no idea if that brand survived at all, here.
BTW, why don't you come up with some Viking lore and imagery? It just might sell well these days...


More here...

 
That's "Mueller Time," a reference to Robert Mueller, special counsel in the Trump/Russia investigation, and the Miller beer "It's Miller time" slogan...

How about these two?

I am a little worried that Stable Genius t-shirt are too common.  A DuckDuckGo search revealed dozens.  Must admit I was kind fond of this one though the IT'S Mueller TIME detracts a little:


 
Yeah, I sold a few of mine; lots of quick hitters like that come and go.




No Smocking Gun sold 2


Here's my Stable Genius. Sold 4!

Yeah, the quote is from a part of an interview with Trump about the cognition test he "aced".  I did another design with flat colors and spiraling arrows which point to wherever "there" is:

Yep! Except for proclivities' and manbird's etc. 

Speaking of spam, this shirt, in the V-neck, has gotten red-hot for some reason. I put it up a year ago... didn't put a lot of effort into it (obv) and didn't even bother/remember to list colors other than black. 

 
It must've been a popular keyword search the last week or so.
