Tag Archives: T-shirts. Poll

The Long-Awaited T-Shirt Blog

Back in June, I asked y’all if you’d like to see some Name of the Wind t-shirts.

When the answer came back a fairly resounding “Yes.” I decided to do a T-shirt design contest.

We got more designs than I expected. So many designs I knew I wasn’t going to be able to include all the ones I liked in the voting.

It took a while to sort through them all. Then we ended up having to do a bunch of secondary research as well. Apparently, if you want to sell something on your website, you need a store or somesuch thing.

I know. It’s crazy.

Anyway, we’ve finally got most of that figured out. So now we have the moment of truth. Now I’m going to ask y’all to vote on which shirts you would actually like to buy and/or wear.

You’ll notice that we’ve included a few of the designs that I initially said we were going to pass over. That’s partly there were a few persuasive blog comments and e-mails sent in. Also, Sarah and Valerie stood up for some designs. Sarah loved the little anime Kvothe with his speech bubbles, and demanded that I include him. I’m growing increasingly fond of the little guy myself.

Before you vote, a few polite requests:

  • Let’s not descend into internet jackassery here. We’re better than that. Don’t vote a bunch of times. That’s not cool.
  • If you know deep in your heart that you’re never going to buy a shirt, it would be nice if you didn’t vote. It’s not that your opinion doesn’t  matter…. It’s just that it doesn’t matter in this particular instance.
  • You can vote for two shirts. That means you should vote for the shirt that you’d really love to buy. And then the shirt that you’d love to buy if your first choice isn’t one of the ones we print.
  • When you’re voting, double check the name of the shirt to make sure you’re casting your vote correctly. The name of the shirt is ABOVE THE PICTURE. ABOVE.

A few additional notes:

  • Vote soon. Tell your friends. The poll will be closing in a week.
  • We will be printing at least two different designs. Maybe three.
  • Colors are to-be-determined. (Though the sweet-eating draccus will probably be blue.)
  • T-shirts will be high-quality material, and probably cost around 20 bucks.
  • All proceeds from the t-shirt sales will go to Worldbuilders.

Later all,


Edit: We will, of course, have lady-sized shirts. Because I want to do something special for all the ladies in the world.
