They actually just finished getting "Someday I Will Rock" printed this week and next should be "Sacred Wild" followed by the speedtrap one and then Robbie's. (Unless they lie to me!)
This is the info I got too. Possibly from you?
Regardless, I have every reason to expect great things from Springleap, and every reason to expect their product to get to me. I'm not really impatient when it comes to such things, but two months will make anyone a little fidgety, even if the shirt IS coming from South Africa. They're definitely on the right track, too... The single-biweekly-print idea is going to do wonders for their productivity compared to the old "top 10-20 for the month all print" model... with only four shirts to worry about so far in '09, it means once they catch up on '08s backlog, they should run quite smoothly. It also means more chance at better quality shirts, and better quality shirts means more sales, and more sales means a quicker recovery time for any profits or press lost through their start-up bumps. Still, though, I'm not planning on talking them up through my blog until I've got my tee, just to be on the safe side, and I'd feel remiss if I didn't warn about the possibly interminable shipping times.
Also, thanks Marzi for the compliment. But my heart is not on the market for taming. Not that anyone got to it first, but more that I don't have one.
