Beekeeping Fan Store Added

So I’ve been wanting to put out some T-shirts that help promote beekeepers in our society. You know – cool shirts beeks would love to where. The problem is, I’m just an engineer and my aesthetic aptitude scores show I’m in the bottom 2% of the nation. I mean hey, you’ve seen the shirts I wear in the videos. Nuff said.

So I want to try to tap into my audience. I’m looking for any artist out there who’s got really cool ideas for a Beekeeping shirt.  I think I’m going to make a contest. Get artists to put forward their shirt designs and let my YouTube audience decide the top designs. Then I’ll submit the designs to my Printfection store for folks to get their cool Beek shirts.  ( I chose Printfection over Cafe Press solely on quality reviews)

Any comments on this plan?

oh and the current Printfection account for the shirts is here – http://www.printfection.com/learningbeekeeping

  1. Hi — i like the idea of a bee-themed T-shirt contest.
    Just a question — how many colors do you plan to print in? That affects the price per shirt pretty significantly. I notice that your existing shirts are all one-color designs; should the new proposals follow suit, or will we entertain designs that are two-color, three-color, many-screens?

    I’d encourage multi color design, but single color will be better for the screenprinter and get a cleaner shirt. Simplicity is evertthing.

    Vern You could try something like that if you waentd, but it has been my experience that the honeybees do a pretty good job of regulating hive temperature themselves. I think it would be best to just let the bees take care of the temperature. They know instinctively the ideal hive temperature for their own beehive.

    I recently started following your videos on YouTube. Fantastic job, and I always look forward to your shirts. I’ve been thinking my husband would drool, too, if he saw them. :-)

    Good luck finding a slogan!
