tl;dr: We’re selling t-shirts!
If you’ve listened to Erasable (and I hope you have!), you’ve probably realized that we’re not podcasting professionals. Johnny, Tim and I are recording via Skype, talking through our standard smart-phone earbuds-with-attached-microphone. When we have guests like Brad Dowdy, with a real for-sure microphone setup, you can tell that he’s been doing this for a while. His voice is crisp and clear.
So, we made the decision some time ago to raise a little revenue to invest in some decent podcasting mics. Eventually we’re going to accomplish this with a small sponsorship opportunity on the episode (interested in details? Let me know), but until we can get the logistics for that set up, we’re raising some money selling t-shirts!
With a a simple, elegant pencil design from the Woodclinched Pencil Vector Pack along with something Johnny said in an early episode: “Pencil is Forever,” you can show off your pencil pride and support the podcast.
(That quote referred to how although graphite is erasable, it doesn’t fade over time.)
$22 gets you this tri-colored shirt, in a fine Canvas-brand tri-blend t-shirt. We have a cerulean blue in a uni-sex-fit size, and for women who want a more fitted look, an alternative in an indigo blue women’s fit.
This campaign is run through Teespring, sort of a Kickstarter for t-shirts. In order to meet the minimum production requirements, we need to raise a minimum of 20 orders by September 3 (at the time of this writing, we’re already up to 14, and the campaign has only been live for four hours!), so tell your friends!
We have all sorts of plans for other t-shirts in the future, so this particular design won’t be printed again. So, like Field Notes COLORS editions, get in while you can!
