Heh. Just to clarify, I joke that Formula for Success "stole" all the royal blue blanks because its success in April and early May 2012 ran through woot's remaining stock of AA royal blue blanks (which was enormous: I joked early in the switch-over that woot probably had a huge stock of royal blue blanks because of Binge, and while obviously I don't know why the royal blue stock was so high, it appeared deeper than the stock of the other commonly-used colors).
I just checked and it looks like Formula sold 9695 shirts in 37 days before it switched from AA to Anvil. This raises three thoughts in my head:
- I can't believe I actually noted in the Reckoning thread the date that each shirt switched over.
- I can't believe I just took the time to look this up!
- I wonder what shirt reached 10,000 sales second-fastest, assuming that Cheese was #1. I'm not about to do all the calculations now, but for the record: Formula took 44 days to reach 10,000 sales. (Thank you to Narfcake for posting daily sales; on May 18, the daily sales were actually posted by Bounty, so thanks to Bounty as well!)
Kevin, I think the folks to blame for Counting Sheep's untimely demise are the people in charge of inventory in Carrollton (or the people in charge of not hiring anyone to keep an eye on inventory!) or the shirt.woot staffers who failed to make any accommodation for Counting Sheep and Recursive Dreams losing several days' worth of sales because they ran out of blanks. Unfortunately, those are also the people in charge of selecting your shirts for print, so... do you play darts?
Edit: Procrastination University took 69 days to reach 10,000 sales.
