Mentions of Honor

Our editors liked these designs too much to let them wash ashore on the Atoll of Failure. The "customers" might not have selected them in the Derby or Derby Double-Take, but don't they get enough attention already? This sale's for you, editors. This is your moment -- this is your time.

Edit: Thanks, Travis, for clearing up that royal blue blanks are still printing on AA (for now). Muchly appreciated (with apologies for my super-grumpy post).

RIP A.A. Blanks (Obituary)

Actually looks like these will be on AA. Our setup guru is working on the switch now.

And that was apparently two derbies I missed Not On My Watch in...glad to discover it here.

Like Poe? Of course you do, you're here ; ) Try my new mystery novel:

Pwned is a collab with kevlar51. His name is not listed. Maybe it can be added so then it will be searchable in the catalog for him as well?

Thanks for the mentions of honor, woot!

No kidding. They just had "The Hungry Igloo" for sale, and the choice was limited to a pullover hoodie or a tote bag because there were no royal blue shirts available. This is so unfair.

Good shirt.woot plus sale. But woot, you got my hopes up that it would include edgar's old crazy dinosaur design ("grrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrr!"). Please consider it for future printing. Thank you.

edit: I don't pay enough attention to be up-to-date on the AA/Anvil blanks drama, and a cursory search didn't help. Anyone care to explain/link? Is woot switching back to AA?

My 6yo daughter wanted "underworld blossom" the minute she saw it in the double-take.
me: "You know it has a skull on it, right?"
her: "Of course it does, it's Persephone in the underworld"
me:"//tear"

I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

Out of courtesy and respect, it should be listed.

Alas, the MoH, along with all the other side sales designs, are not going into the back catalog.

I do hope that changes; as Woot has the printing rights for the year, they should make the most of it, for the benefit of artists and themselves. Last year's will be up in March; we'll see if they offer any additional items between now and then.

Thanks fishbiscuit5 and NarfCake!

On the good news side, Woot has "D" contracts now. Assuming the artist agreed to it, MoH sales now go into the catalog. Basically it's a C contract without the 1-year term.

No cure for the old C contracts at the moment.

WOOTBOT Stated on C-is for Coffee that "She clearly hasn't had enough coffee this morning. Way too calm."

HELLO!! What about us ADD/ADHD people who aren't calm until AFTER we've had our morning cup of Joe????? Clearly they've never seen me first thing in the morning!

I'm in for one (even if it's on creme) :p

That's weird, I had assumed the side sale shirts would go into the back catalog. Would be nice.

And just in case any staff are looking for ideas, if they do this kind of side sale again, my requests/suggestions:

edgar's dinosaurs

and

Magic Ride
or
Tree Frog

Thanks.

Hey Kevlar, sorry about the oversight. I added you to the sale bio and will see about getting you another coupon use to get a free copy.

Also, we do plan on approaching our former C contract artists to see about moving them over to D's and into the catalog, but it will be an ongoing project.

Mentions of honor are put in the catalog after the initial sale, yes? I can't buy now because I need to wait for next month so I don't go over budget.

Not necessarily; it will depend on the contract that was signed. Your safe bet is to purchase now and not count on it being in the catalog later.

Thank you for adding Kevin to the design, Travis!

For anyone who is curious, We did choose the D contract so "Pwned" will be in the catalog when it opens up again.

Nice. Glad she liked it! And that I didn't overskull the design...

Budgets are important. That said, I personally prefer screen prints over DTG (which is how the catalog versions will be printed).
Plus it's cheaper right now ...butbudgetimportant...fiscality.

I feel that the designer of "Dare to Keep Your Kids Off Cauliflower" made a poor choice in giving the cauliflower a sad face. Normally, I'd be super supportive of illegalizing cauliflower! But the face not only humanizes it for me, it also makes me feel kinda bad for the little guy. It's not his fault he tastes bad.

Now, if it had an evil face (ala >:D ) then that would be a whole 'nother story. It should probably be kicking a puppy as well.

Because even though cauliflower isn't that bad by itself, it's a gateway vegetable. Soon kids end up at roadside stands, trying to score some fresh brussels sprouts. And that's the hard stuff.

It's a joke.

The joke is that cauliflower is one of the classic vegetables that kids tend to hate. The design is a parody of the "pro cannabis" shirts that usually have a pot leaf and say "Legalize it". Some kids and possibly adults might want to illegalize cauliflower because they think it is yucky. I hope that explains it.

Also thank you to Neuro for her plan B which I thankfully didn't have to use.



Fun fact: no one from Wyoming has purchased a shirt from this sale, further proof that there is no Wyoming.

I ran out of town before grabbing a copy of my shirt and now I don't have access to my e-mail. Can a fellow Mentions of Honor side sale artist PM me the coupon code?

If no one sends you the coupon code, order anyway and email support@wootdotcom when you get home, giving them your artist coupon code and asking if it can be retrospectively applied to your order. It's not ideal, but they've done it for me in the past with non-artist coupons when I had to return something purchased with a coupon (refund for what I paid, coupon credit applied to a recent order).

(Fellow wooters, please don't drive Support crazy by doing this often, but they have the ability to do it if necessary.)
