Hello Sentence Game Users!
A number of people have asked about getting thesentencegame.com T-Shirts, but before I do more research into the technicalities, I'd like to find out your thoughs.
Would you buy a T-Shirt?
What price vs. quality is preferred?
Would you buy a generic T-Shirt (with perhaps a collage of some favorite games)?
Would you prefer the option of a custom T-Shirt printed with a snippet of any completed game?
How much preferred is this? (it will no doubt be a more expensive process)
Are there other items you'd like to see sentence games printed on? (mugs? mousepads? your face?)
I don't anticipate thesentencegame.com making much money on these -- enough to offset the website costs would be excellent -- but it will be much fun! Let me know what *you'd* like to see in the comments below, and have fun playing!

I would deffinitely buy some with just one picture and sentence. I think this would be better than an entire game because usually one part of it is funniest, and I'm sure people would ask about it. I think the most ideal thing would be to let people pick which snippet they want, but that would be much more costly to make them, because you wouldn't be mass producing one image, you'd pay more to make each one unique. I know you'd like to keep it cheap, but I'm sure if people got a snippet they really enjoyed, and they wanted to help advertise thesentencegame.com, they'd buy it for probably $20??? I'd also deffinitely buy snippets printed on other things, but I don't really know what all of the options there are. Shotglasses would be cool. Having them printed on plain white christmas ornament bulbs would be cool too! Pillows, towels, I don't know the realm of possibilities, but I know I'd buy tons of 'em if the snippet was one of my favorites.

I want a sentence game printed across my forehead. I'd pay nine dollars and twelve cents. More than that would be ludicrous. I also want to marry you.

I actually think it's fairly easy to set-up a "shop" online where any number of images can be printed on any number of products. I've seen this before, but I can't recall where . . .

Perhaps you are thinking of cafepress.com?

I would love to get a few thesentencegame.com shirts and other swag. You could easily give people a choice of 4 or 5 differnt snippits to choose from. I think a good way to decide which to offer is to have members vote for their all time favorites. $15 - $20 plus s/h seems like a fair price.

I would also love to get a t-shirt, but I would probably only get one (even though I'm sure there would be five or so that I would want!). I wouldn't care so much about the price, but I would want to be picky about which design I got since I'd only be getting the one. That said, I really enjoy going back through the old sentence games and would definitely participate if you called for a vote for our favorites if you wanted an idea of which designs people were most interested in.

I'd be interested in seeing the pre-set designs laid out--most of the time I forget the more t-shirttable ones, so it would help.
