Coming Soon: Prairie Dog Limited Edition Shirts

We’re ordering them this week! Here’s a sneek peek at the draft artwork (pending colour tweaks). The shirt’s an indie-rock-style effort by News Quirks illustrator Myron Campbell that ties in with our upcoming Back To School feature. The plan is to print this on premium American Apparel 50/50 shirts. More than one colour will be available–right now we’re thinking gold, sand and orchid (kind of a mauve), which you can see in shirt-form here.

Cost isn’t set but $20 seems a safe bet.

If you’re tentatively interested, let me know in the comments below or on prairie dog’s Facebook page. This will help me determine how many shirts to print. If this scheme works, i.e. if it doesn’t actually lose money, we’ll do more arty, limited edition shirts in the future. We’re also thinking about a non-limited edition, somewhat more conventionally-designed prairie dog tee, to be available in the next few months.

  1. For this round of shirts, yes. AA shirts are comfy and they’re made in North America. Our screen printer is researching other companies for future orders, though.

  2. Check out the colours and let me know which way I should lean. Most of the (unisex) shirts will be Large but I’ll order some mediums and smalls. There’s a sizing chart in the link.

    Order goes in tomorrow!

  3. That’s what I like about you folks: you’re up for risk! OK, I’m in: I like the orchid colour, and a large would be fine.

  4. Update for Pat: no guarantees but we’re looking into alternative shirts. I’ve been reading and AA seems to be into the crack even more than I thought.

    (Although the suspicious part of me wonders if the only major shirt company with North American factories is being targeted for a smear job.)
