They do print on demand and have lots of different things you can add your own design to as well


Cafepress is on the shortlist. Advantages: POD, local production and distribution keeps P&P low for nom, range of shirts and other products
Disadvantages: expensive, money basically goes to cafepress instead of the wonderful charitable causes that I had in minds.

But they're on the shortlist, alongside a number of other similar organisations.

So we are to understand that you are in two or more minds about this, eh?

OK, so there's a bear on the back of the shirt, and it won't be available until NIAD 5. So, what do we take from that? NIAD 5 will be an animal story, à la Watership Down, The Wind in the Willow or Animal Farm (but with bears).



Just for you, a picture of a bear to tide you over:

Wait... they produce cotton shirts with nothing but electricity? They have a REPLICATOR?!

I can see why it would take so long to make them; producing enough power for a replicator with nothing but stationary bikes and drum circles must be exhausting.*

I'm glad to know I won't have to write naked next year. Late October in the mid-western USA is rather chilly, and I've been getting rude glares from other cafe patrons every time I participate in NiaD.

Time for a change... I'm now rdale; same dog-avatar, same dog... channel?

Piggy...

Muse would like my to abuse you soundly. Her cause is just. I informed her that you demand that I work in the nude from the start of NiaD 4 to the end of NiaD 5. She desires a slow and painful demise for you.

Maybe we can convince Mr K to participate in NiaD 5 allowing him the freedom to be free for a year.

See what you've started?

Grumble grumble.

I'm not sure if my actions violate Geneva conventions. It could be that I used biologic weapons. Or could be torture. Yet I feel no guilt. None at all.

It's post-NiaD: where's our shirts?

At the very least give us a NiaD button for our websites that incorporates an affiliate link* to the NiaD bookstore**.


*Yes. I know. But it sounds formal.
**Yes. I know that too.

Like, I said. I have some ideas. I will look into t-shirts, web-button things, and other ways to for you to show your undying affection for all things NiaD.

I might even get round to sorting out a logo for the sub-forum at some point.

In the meantime, just wear one of your regular plain t-shirts and tell yourself that it's secretly a NiaD t-shirt in honour of the covert nature of the most recent book.
