We're thrilled to introduce our new line of Boing Boing merchandise, designed by Boing Boing and made by our pals at GAMA-GO! Our plan is to create a small collection of wonderful products, from t-shirts to limited edition artwork, shiny gee-gaws to curious knicknaks. Folks from the happy mutants universe will do the designing and GAMA-GO is handling production, fulfillment, and customer service. We're also benefiting from GAMA-GO's helpful design suggestions, gentle nudges, and years of experience, to finetune our curious concepts. They're our co-conspirators in bringing Boing Boing's product pipe dreams into the physical world.
We're starting modestly, with a selection of three simple t-shirt designs:
• Jackhammer Jitters
: See our Jackhammer Jill mascot as she sees you, vectorized, highly-caffeinated, and resonating with the high weirdness of the world. Mark and I came up with this art during a conference where we probably should have been paying attention to other things. But isn't that what Boing Boing is all about?
: This is the only shirt of the three that incorporates the familiar Boing Boing logo in the design. Joel said, if we're going to make a logo tee, why not go all the way?
• Get Illuminated! 20th Anniversary Edition
: In 1989, the first pages of the bOING bOING print 'zine spewed forth from a copy machine. To celebrate our 20th anniversary, we've reissued the original bOING bOING t-shirt, featuring Mark's 1990 illustration of Kata Sutra, the cybervixen who whispered in our ear until Jackhammer Jill made the scene. Like the original t-shirt graphic, this one glows in the dark!
The t-shirts are available in men's and women's sizes for $24/each. If you buy two shirts, or just spend more than $25 at GAMA-GO on any of their fine products, domestic shipping is absolutely free. We hope you dig the new Boing Boing line, designed by us, made by GAMA-GO. We'll bug you from time to time with info about new products, reminders, and other details. Thank you for your support!
