There’s been quite a trend this year for cool slogan and branded t-shirts. I’m not talking about the ‘I’m with stupid’ type t-shirts, or the sort where you find yourself staring at a man’s chest, only to discover, just before he catches your eye, that his t-shirt says something hideous like ‘you can look but not touch.’
It got me thinking, in an idle moment, when I probably should have been thinking about my tax return or how to get Belle to eat vegetables, what I would put on a Slummy Single Mummy t-shirt. You can get them made you see, at places like Fire Label, and I thought it could be the start of a whole new business venture for me.
Let’s face it, Belle is just never going to eat courgettes, so I might as well forget about that, and taxes? BORING.
But t-shirts, t-shirts could be my next big thing. (That does implied that I have had previous big things, but we’ll gloss over that.)
I started day dreaming about the day when I’d walk down my local High Street and see people wearing my face on their jumpers, but that felt a bit Orwellian, so I contented myself with mocking up a few designs on my phone instead.
I’ve just gone with five to start with, because I know from watching Dragon’s Den and The Apprentice, (which, from now on, will count as business research), that you need to keep the range of designs and colours small to begin with, to minimise costs. I’ve also learnt never to remortgage my house to pursue a dream of creating a product that’s a 2-1 hedge clipper/light bulb changing device, or anything else stupid like that.
Anyway, here they are. I think they sum my blog up pretty nicely.
Which is your favourite? What would you put on your own slogan t-shirt?
