So...I'm not really sure where to post this, but since this post might touch on the topic of art, so why not.(Mods pls feel free to move this thread wherever appropriate).

So as you can tell, I've been on gbatemp for almost 5 years now. I've seen people come and go, sponsors change, death of the ttds and cyclops flashkarts etc :P
But I've always wondered why we don't have any official gbatemp merchandise that people can buy so as to support our great community.

I'm sure some of our great artists could come up with awe-inspiring designs. Maybe there could be a contest for choosing the best graphics for t-shirts and hats?

C'mon whaddhya say?

Yup, hoodies would be cool.

why not make it more frequent?

Perhaps there could a small competition every 2-3 months where a new gbatemp(related) approved design is chosen for the new campaigns held in the 2-3 month frequency. That way the design remains fresh and people get to buy nice stuff even if they missed the last sale.

So yeah, basically what I'm proposing is that this could really be a good thing.
New designs every 3 months (selected via competitions)
People get to buy stuff they really dig and help out the temp while they're at it.

talk to @p1ngpong maybe he can contact the shop he got them made at and order another batch :unsure:
I really hope this gets noticed by some of the temp heavy weights :P

    That's some 5D math that only makes sense in America.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its different prices per state because state taxes are different, Cali taxes are higher than most, its has nothing to do w min wage.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    It does at the end of the day because they'd demand more and go on strike
  • Veho @ Veho:
    You admit the corporations charge more because people can afford it, not because it really costs more, right?
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Yes companies look at average costs of what people can afford to sale products
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And there's no competition?
  • HUNTERFOX @ HUNTERFOX:
    Competition in companies here are like crazy
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Sure but competition does the same if anything at lower rates because they don't have the same resources
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Usually like a 10-20% difference
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I was told the market would "self regulate".
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I still feel as if prices would've gone up in America regardless of whose in office
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Of course they would, both your parties are spineless corporate stooges.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    What about companies that are nationwide. Do you think they charge in that states stores based on state economic situation. No they charge the same, but taxes per state make the price difference. (Exception maybe Alaska, Hawaii)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Once you minimize cost of living a $500 gaming console could feel like a $1,000 console to a average home
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    But even they look at data charts and mostly have contacts in other country wide offices that talk to each other to make a fair msrp
  • Veho @ Veho:
    BigOnYa, taxes are calculated at checkout in Murrika so it's easy to compare.

    I have a family member that lives near the Ohio/Kentucky border in Cincinnati, Ohio, he goes across the border to Kentucky to buy most things because they're sales tax is lower in Kentucky.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I went down there last summer and helped him run electric in a pole barn he built, and he saved over $300 buying electrical supplies at HomeDepot in Kentucky instead of in Ohio. Weird but true.
