Title: Pocket Plane Merchandise: Not just for pockets anymore!
Post by: jcompton on July 15, 2004, 08:56:32 PM
No, we're not kidding.

At least, not too much.

A Pocket Plane Shop is now open on CafePress:

http://www.cafeshops.com/pocketplane

Show your PPG pride! Declare chick modderdom! Be the Ultimate Ding0!

We've applied a very modest markup (no more than $3) to all of CafePress's prices. Monthly proceeds above the nominal costs of hosting PPG will be put into the PPG "Scholarship Fund" and raffled off to to PPG staff engaged in higher education (and Cliffette's in on the draw since she's a good sport and we're using the Rasta Kelsey images.)

Items will be added periodically, don't be afraid to make requests.

Post by: jcompton on July 15, 2004, 09:11:05 PM
Oh:

All credit goes to Bons for the item design (with credit to Cliffette for the original Rasta Kelsey, of course.)

I'm deliberately waiting to do a front-page news announcement until AFTER Iron Modder finishes. As cute as the Huggle Bear Corvis and the Virtue Thong are, they don't seem worth bumping Iron Modder dates further down the chain. :)

For clarification, the Valygar coffee mug, as there is now more than one coffee mug.

The Cafepress service we're using employs digital transfers for printing, which doesn't yet produce good results on black-colored garments. To get black T-shirts would require investing in screen fees and inventory, blahblahblah, which is not going to happen.  I live in hope that black garments will be added to Cafepress eventually, though it could take some time. It looks like it consumed nealry two years for them to move from white-shirt-only technology to the white-yellow-green-pink-shirt technology we have today. :)

Could I get a mug that has the "Pocket Plane Group" or "Chick Modder" logo? What about a tote or a mouse pad? One can never have too many totes. ::)

Even though I'd actually have to make a mod to be a chick moddar, but still...

Post by: jcompton on July 18, 2004, 12:22:45 AM
We're only using the CafePress free store, which only lets you have one design of each item type.

If sales ever become a positive integer, we can discuss it. Although we could create the tote, and probably will at some point.

How about a baseball cap or tennis visor (personally I would only wear a bandana)

Can we have some screenshots of the Virtue thongs in use? (nudge,nudge,wink,wink)
*and yes make sure they are female models*

More seriously... some model shots of all the products should be put up (I would really like that thong shot tho)

This is a cool idea all the other mod communities some follow your example... too bad I would never send money to the internet in any form :(

Well, it's not red, but it'll do. Pink Modder T-shirt on the way. I will model it when it arrives, if it fits and all. Which I will pray nightly that it does. Sadly, though, I had to choose between the shirt, Corvis, and the thong; and, well, a cute shirt will win out over rectal floss or a troll in bear suit every time.

I'm also tempted by the pirate top. But what I really want, as I've said on IRC, is NO PUBES boxers. I promise to order them if you make them... Get to it! :)

As the original Iron Pirate, I'm very pleased at people's reactions here. :) I was kind of hoping I'd be the first person to be able to model it, but I expect it'll arrive at Alarielle's house before it arrives at mine.

Oh yeah, and has anyone else noticed that women get all kinds of neat clothes and stuff, but men get nothing?  I want a shirt with stripes around the neck and sleeves, like the... uh, ringer, but CafePress only has those for women.

Edit: Okay, so that last bit came out bad.  I don't particularly want to try out the more interesting varieties of women's clothing, or anything.  I'm all pirate, baby!

Sim has a... rallying cry, or a catchphrase, or something. It is "NO PUBES." It it unclear to anyone but him exactly what it means (if it's an accusation, or a directive, or what.) It is used as the battle cry for an ogre in one of his TBG contest mods.

When he gets back to France, perhaps he'll explain. If he can.

Um. We made a buncha products based on the most likely looking combinations, the items available to us from Cafepress, and all the logos Bons could make while she was neglecting things like the rest of her life. :) If anyone has a specific suggestion that Cafepress offers, we'll add it. Some new products are coming soon... including a very limited-edition-don't-blink-or-you'll-miss-it boxer design.

 A classic combo with either boxers or thongs would be the spaghetti strap tank or a ribbed tank. In, of course, unisex sizing. ;)

 Outside of actually placing an order, and the free baby t-shirt, I was not being totally serious. Kudos to Bons and the rest of you for the selection offered. It is a fun idea and hopefully it will work out well.

 In the future I might the suggest using some of the pithier comments of the modders and mods' characters for slogans. I realize you could not use Bioware quotes but I know there a thousands of funny/ witty quotes from in-mod, in-forum, in fanfiction and irc. Perhaps these quotes would be too insider but I think they could be quite popular and fun. Just a tee with <charname> or If ~ Then, etc. could be very funny.

 Best of luck with whole endeavor. :)

Post by: jcompton on July 20, 2004, 11:26:42 PM
That is a good idea. The trick is that we're limited to only doing one item of each product type until and unless we start paying for the store, which won't happen unless sales justify it. (Not that your patronage and willingness to be the first Virtue Thong victim... er, customer... aren't appreciated.)

- "Last Mug of Ale in Amn" stein

Nowadays, internet transactions are actually safer than using your credit/debit card in a shop.

It isn't actually the transaction that I am worried about (*they* make sure the transaction works!), it's the mail service. Too many times have I sent away for stuff and it never showed up. (T-shirts, Lego sets, Warhammer models, Books) It starts getting to ya...

Shouldn't the calender be for next year? It's July already so who's gonna pay for a calender that's already half obsolete?

Doesn't look like it's going to come off any time soon.  It's come through the wash fine, although it does need to be ironed inside-out :)

In a vaguely-related vein, I've put Google ads on the main site front page, because I was oh so curious as to what the fine automated folks at Google would serve up. Mostly I've seen what you'd expect (BG and Everquest ads) but the Kelsey page had an ad for a "real psychic" offering "real love spells"... so, yeah. :)

It's highly experimental, I'm not at all sure I'll keep it there, but, full disclosure and all. If I do keep it up I'll distribute the money the same way I have for the gear.

Just thought I'd share with everyone...

I came up with a bumper sticker idea a few days ago: I Brake For LT46 (http://img.ranchoweb.com/images/pirengle/brakeforlt46.png)

I'm working on three Iron Modder t-shirts, two being Iron Chef spoofs. One has the Japanese kanji for Iron Modifier behind the words Iron Chef and the other has the Iron Chef herald done in PPG colors. The third's gonna take some work but I think it would be a nifty idea if it got off the ground. It's a spoof of my friend's favorite shirt: Iron Modder World Tour, PocketPlane.net, and on the back would be dates of Iron Modder and the countries the modders hailed from. (Wouldn't give names or anything, just countries, maybe states.) I'd have examples of these as well but the images are a pain in the butt to find.

Thoughts?

I shouldn't take all the credit. Jason mentioned LT46 to fill in the "I Brake For" blank. Some other people suggested stuff too.

Anyway, having set up a separate account I have placed the two-box banner back on the PPG main site.

Please let me know the funniest ad you see come through. Thus far my favorite is getting the psychic offering "real love spells" on the Kelsey page.

And Pirengle, yeah, if you want to provide full-res workups of those products, I'll gleefully put them up.
