Poll: Now that we’ve got a fancy new “Slate” shirt color, should we start printing Nevermore on Slate, or keep it on the original Asphalt?
  • 29.6% - Slate! Freshen things up a bit! 833
  • 17% - Asphalt! If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! 480
  • 53.4% - I don’t care either way, to be honest. 1503

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Oh Dear Goodness: of course it should print on the lighter blank!

Well whatever it's on now is way too dark, so that slate color sounds like an improvement to me. It's a great design too. It's just thin black tiny print on nearly black shirt doesn't work well. I had to spray bleach based cleaner in the area the print was before I could tell there was print there. Of course I wasn't wearing it when I sprayed it with cleaner....

Well if it was an AA blank then by all means change. But any print on the non AA blanks is pretty much *meh* to me.

I would buy it again, though I do like the goth kinda look. It is a dark poem.


Perhaps make the writing blacker.

If it's an Anvil made shirt, you can do whatever you want.... not interested in those Anvil shirts...

We bookish-nerds don't like being lumped in with the emo-goth crowd. I like the shirt and I'd probably buy another one on slate. Maybe people will actually notice it then...

Now that there is a fancy new color, how about bringing back the shirt with Hamlet's soliloquy in the shape of poor Yorick's skull design? It was easily as good, if not better, than the raven (though I do love me some Poe).

After being on the charts for THAT LONG, the only way you're going to bounce sales is a new color.

I agree, was never a fan of Nevermore, didn't hate it just meh about it...definetly would not mind seeing being sent to the all designs (formerly reckoned) tab

you should also print Trying to Sing on slate. I want it so badly, but a friend of mine has it and you can't see the raven AT ALL. it's basically just a hovering white blob of a clef and that's it.

I bought one for my wife/English prof/attorney and one for each our little girls and until you "fade" the shirts, everyone seems to think it's just a black shirt. On a lighter color the raven shape would be obvious. Slate would be grounds for another round!

Really! Either come up with a new poll or at least get rid of this one.

Too many people voted for the "I don't care" option in the poll. This is our punishment for all the apathy.

The shirt color must change. Now it looks like just a blank T...so disappointed. Does not look like the picture. Will try the bleach spray, thanks for the tip.

Go with slate. My 'trying to sing' is almost a blank. I was so disappointed and have been trying to bleach it in the sun on my clothesline. I have avoided any dark shirts since.
