Swag Status for 2019-20
We have very limited quantities of previous bulk-ordered swag (some red penguin shirts in XL, plus a few black tote bags) – contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in these.
Otherwise, we’re using Zazzle, which we know is not ideal, and we are working on other options. Here’s why we’re using it for now:
- We heard a lot of feedback from parents that they wanted a wider range of t-shirt styles and colors (the old penguin design was only available on red “unisex” shirts)
- There’s no consensus on which design(s) we’d use for bulk screen printing, so for now we’re experimenting with different designs
- There was a t-shirt design competition last year which made it clear that our students love rainbows 🌈… and those work quite well with Zazzle’s digital printing process (bulk screen printing is best with a small number of colors)
The goal is to meet some of the current demand for spirit gear while working in parallel to find the next design that we can bulk order, at lower cost. We hope that this will be one of the outcomes of the school branding project in 2020.
Longer-term we also hope to have a bulk screen-printed design that’s suitable to sell to the wider community in the Castro and beyond, for school fundraising.
Contact email@example.com with any questions or feedback, or if you have expertise in this area (design, printing, etc) and would like to help.
