    So yeah, I just placed an order from the GBAtemp shop. I bought 2 of each of the types of bumper stickers (the rectangle and the oval) and one of the T-shirts.....the one with the GBAtemp mascot on the back.

    My plan is to pop one of the rectangle bumper stickers on my car and Sharpie my name on it (Rayder). Honk if you ever see me. [​IMG]

    I added a poll to this thread, go ahead and vote. I'm curious to see how many peeps bought stuff from the shop and hope you guys will list what you bought.
    Comments on delivery and quality of items received welcomed. I will add my comments as soon as I receive my goodies.

    Well, I'm ashamed to admit, but I didn't know of a GBAtemp shop [​IMG] (don't ban me from the site, [​IMG] please)..

    I'll check it up.....maybe even order a shirt in some time..

    Nah, those are very expensive. I'm not loaded at the moment but if I ever come across a large sum of money, I'll be sure to buy out the shop.

    Well, from what I believe, they may be a little expensive but a small portion of the fee goes to the people here at GBATemp which goes towards the site as well as its contests like when they gave away 25 Acekards

    I got my stuff today! The t-shirt seems to be of good quality as do the bumper stickers. The oval stickers are smaller than I thought they would be, but that's OK. Just a slight bit of snipping around the top and bottom edges and they would fit on the top of the DS lite nicely. It would likely fit on a DS phat without any snipping at all. The rectangular bumper stickers are the same size as any other bumper sticker. I received it all a week sooner than they said it would come too. Coolness! [​IMG]

    The t-shirt is the one with GBAtemp.net on the front and the mascot pic on the back. Me likey!

    It was stuffed in the mailbox, sticking out like a sore thumb in my bad neighborhood. LOL! Luckily it wasn't stolen. They even put a very store-like receipt in a nice little cardboard folder in the package. That was a nice touch.

    I was going to take some pics, but the battery is dead in the camera and I can't find the recharger at the moment. I'll post some pics as soon as I find it.

    I'm gonna put one of the rectangular bumper stickers on my gold 1995 Saturn and I have written "RAYDER" on it. So if you ever see me, wave. [​IMG] The sticker is dark blue, so the black Sharpie'd name may be a little hard to see, but it's right where the mouth would have been on the mascot's silhouette.

    GBAtemp uses Cafepress.com as their supplier, they are based in Louisville, Kentucky.

    I'd have to give the GBAtemp Shop (and Cafepress.com) a 5 star rating. Good quality and speedy delivery, not to mention GBAtemp being my favorite site on the net. I'm happy to support them by purchasing some goodies. [​IMG]

    You know, I think the stickers would be great 2nd or 3rd place prizes in GBAtemp contests.

    No, purely for the fact I do not want merch that says "GBAtemp.net" on it.
    I like my graphic tee's and polo shirts.

    A donate link is better tbh, all the money goes, not just a percentage ofi t.

    I'm all for supporting the site (hell, I spend enough time on here!) and get through plenty of mugs in a day, but none of the designs really appeal to me.
