We may have finally found a place capable of doing a new round of quality Liaden related shirts and t-shirts, including some embroidered items. We’re due to talk in depth with these folks RSN — as in after our book tour.
In our as yet very preliminary discussions a question of quantity comes up, because while embroidered items can be done on an “each” basis (we’ve got several samples on hand of the embroidery quality), the screen-printing process works best for larger quantities. So, without specifying colors/special wording or the like, we need to figure out if there’s a current market for Liaden-themed t-shirts as well as denim embroidered. Yes, there’s a minimum practical number, but we’re not sure yet where that will turn out to be.
What do you think? Would you want one t-shirt? Three? One for every day of the week? Multiple colors? We’ll be asking on our Facebook groups and while we’re on tour.
This is preliminary interest, these are surveys and not order-taking. Nothing firm will happen until later in the summer or early fall.
