So this is a topic that has come up a few times in the IRC and with me talking to individual people about it. The idea would be to create tshirts and other such merch with creepypasta material. Naturally, as we don't want to infringe on other people's material too much, this would be confined to stuff from Terror Tortellini and maybe even stuff from stories that are uncredited (or essentially anonymously written). I'm still a bit iffy about that second one, but it would open up more possibilities for ideas.

This announcement (and thread) is for everybody to give their opinions about this. Are you for or against it? Would you buy this kind of merchandise or boycott it? Do you think free tshirts would make wonderful contest prizes?

Otherwise, feel free to post ideas for stuff you'd like to see and to get in touch with me about helping out. I'm just a writer (a terrible one at that), so I'm not very creative with the visual shit. And I'm pretty lousy when it comes to business (I once tried to start a tshirt making company with a couple friends and..), so any help in that aspect would be greatly appreciated as well.

Questions, comments, complaints, or insults?

I can't think of this being done in a non-tacky way. I'm open to suggestions, but I just can't see it.

What Ches said.

It's definately a good idea on the face, but I think it would be seriously difficult to nail down some themes to start with.

I'm not saying knock it on the head altogether, but you ought to wait until we have more members. Hopefully that will give us A) more things to make shirts and stuff about and B) more people to buy it.

I wasn't really imagining us jumping off the deep end right away, and having tons and tons of merch ideas to throw around every which way.

I was thinking more along the lines of: People have suggestions they would like to see, I make like a handful of those, and see where it goes from there. Start small.

Maybe NoLove quotes?

'And then the walrus died because it was living on land.'?

Light blue with a dark blue walrus on it?

I would buy the hell out of that shirt

Pens would be cool, maybe with the website on them. Something subtle, no t-shirts or shit like that for the beginning.

Don't use the anon stories, though. People love their lawsuits, unfounded or legitimate.

I would buy a Fuck Nate tee-shirt. Also, I'd love to design some stuff if y'all give me a concept. I've done some digital painting in my day, and a bunch of pixel art too.

That's a "pixel pet" I designed for this writing forum I admin'd. Pixel art is my favorite thing ever. And a pixel bear would be adowable.

AAAAAAA MY EYES!!!111!!

FOR ALL THAT IS GOOD IN THIS WORLD, SPARE THE REST OF THEM

WHAT HAS BEEN SEEN CANNOT BE UNSEEN

I AM NOW USING A BLUNT PENCIL TO BLIND MYSELF FOREVER.




On another note, Slenderman tees, if done well, would be awesome. Heck, even TT desktops might be a good idea.
And anything I've written on this forum, I say is fair game to use.


And two bears is really the perfect shirt.

Yeah, the POD sites were really what I was going for in terms of making the stuff. Something like GO did with his Lottie D merch.

And yeah, the two bears one is just pure gold.
