I always wondered what people would get out of buying merchandise that alluded to a particular blog. When perusing shops, what would you most likely buy?
Buttons? T-shirts? Bumper stickers? Bags?
I never wanted to spend more than 30.00 bucks on merch from a website unless the allusion was indirect and whatever it said made me laugh. Buying products that are straight up advertising isn't my thing, unless it's a bumper sticker. The Bloggess merchandise is a perfect example of what I like to see in a shop.
What do you guys think?
I'm a huge fan of Allie Brosh's merch. She has some fab stuff featuring her best drawings. In particular, the 'Clean all the things!' and 'Parp?' mugs. In fact, I really should by some....
Yes, definitely on the novelty mugs train. Also, if I had an iPhone, I'm sure I would buy a cover. Just so everyone who was in the know would be all 'that blog is awesome, you have great taste' and then I would instantly be cool. Oooh, and a satchel! Yes, most certainly satchels.
Yes, Hyperbole & A Half merch is awesome, and I swear I want to spend a bazillionty dollars at her site. Also, Cakewrecks/Epbot does a decent job making cool/nerdy stuff that I want to buy. It's kinda cute on its own, but so much better if you are in on the joke.
I am demanding that the Snark Squad girls make good on their promises to make T-shirts. I will totally buy one. Or five.
