Back up at Cafe Press

The Unmannedspaceflight.com Store

I've re-done the products with the new logo after being a little disapointed with the way the previous logo came out, particularly on the clothing - fortunately I had an excellent beta-tester in Lakdawalla Jnr that showed the more vivid colours come out great! A few of you have been bugging me about this - so here it is, just in time for 2007 smile.gif

Just for 'full disclosure' - I've added about 20-25% on top of the base price, that is how much will come through to me and thus the UMSF coffers - you can always plough through cafe press and find the normal price of each product if you want to compare.

Enjoy!

Doug, I wouldn't mind seeing UMSF bumper stickers & license plate holders in the future...just a suggestion, if anyone else would be interested! smile.gif

CafePress don't do licence plate holders as far as I know.

That long sleeve sweater is a must have cool.gif
We'll have to wear some of the clothing to be recognisible for the 2007 meeting wink.gif
PhilCo126
Doug, are the UMSF-goods shipped from USA or from UK ?
djellison
Cafepress is based in the USA - and despite the fact that it would be very easy to do - sadly they've not set up a virtual 'depot' in the EU anywhere.

http://help.cafepress.com/hc/s-74058960/cm...amp;action=view

All the items are made 'on the fly' and then shipped straight out.

Ok, now those will show up the next time I ask questions while CSPAN is recording an event. There's even a bumper sticker...gotta have some of those...

I'm going shopping. smile.gif
PhilCo126
In fact that bumper sticker is just too large to fit onto my DELL laptop sad.gif
djellison
That's because your laptop isn't a bumper smile.gif

What size would you like?

Doug
PhilCo126
Doug, I will order the 10X3 inches anyway, just cutting the edges half a centimeter would work fine wink.gif
I'll send You a photo of my 'workplace' before and after applying the UMSF sticker
djellison
Your laptop is <10 inches ohmy.gif
PhilCo126
Yep, at least the flat 'metal' part on the outside is, the only place where I can put stickers
PhilCo126
O.K. who has already ordered something?
At least we all need the UMSF mini button to be recognizable at the UMSF meeting this summer wink.gif
( How long ddi You have to wait to get items etc... )
djellison
Took about 7 days when I ordered stuff before....

If you order stuff and get it - can you let me have a picture of it so I know how good they ACTUALLY look smile.gif

I'm gonna get a few things next month; kind of tapped right now (post-holiday wallet vacuum effect... rolleyes.gif )

I ordered a golf tee and a bumper sticker on Tuesday, I got an email today stating it shipped out earlier today.

I was going to order the regular tee shirt but I felt the logo was too large, I would have liked it to be similar in size to the logo on the golf tee. Maybe just a little larger.
djellison
Kudos to the four of you who bought stuff so far this year - $22.64 of comission - which actually trebbles to total ammount of comission earnt at the store to date ohmy.gif

I just ordered a tee shirt and 2 mugs. I needed something to wear and carry to the barbeque at VC. :-)

Perhaps that's the 'entry fee' for the VC BBQ - everyone has to be wearing some item of UMSF-branded wossisname... ...so long as Doug doesn't do thongs, I reckon we're pretty safe!

(eek!)

My stuff is underway and yes I'll post a photo when I get it wink.gif

I'll be first in line - next month... apart from the Christmas impactor, someone somewhere tickled my conscience and I found myself signing up to the Planetary Society after many years of cynical & unconstructive pooh-poohing. (It was the podcasts that did it, really.) Hmmm, what with that, and the EFF, the FSF, No2ID and ORG.org... this card-carrying habit's getting expensive! (Whoops, a little bit of politics there - sorry, Mr Ellison! )

I really do need a new mug; the corporate-logo ones at work are only just big enough to cope with a two-shot cocktail from the coffee-machine -- I always end up slopping it over the carpet on the way back to my desk , and the large mug looks just perfect.

An obvious idea for additional merchandise -- I'd be willing to pay quite a lot for a large, frame-able reproduction of, well... any one of dozens of classic images posted by the talented bitpushers of UMSF. (Someone point me at the "all-time great MER shots" thread?) Certainly Larry's Lookout, Duck Bay, Home Plate, dust devils, El Dorado, the route maps,.. in fact, I'd buy one a month for a year or two smile.gif This would surely kill several birds with one stone -- many people here have either made their own posters, or talked dreamily about doing so. But I'm sure lots of us who haven't the skills to do it ourselves, or the time to run around finding a printer or copyshop that would do would be delighted to contribute to the UMSF coffer. I definitely would! And they'd make fantastic PR / outreach props. (I'm thinking of the view from Husband Hill on the wall next to my desk at work smile.gif

I agree with imipak, if we can manage the rights etc I would love some UMSF.com sourced images. They are more valuable, to me, than NASA versions of the same images because of our friendship and fellowship here.

BTW Doug, I received my bumper (really a Laptop) sticker and small shirt for my son. He loves wearing it! My wife and I were cracking up when we noticed that the logo is huge, and on both the front and back of the shirt. For some reason, we just thought that was hilarious.
PhilCo126
O.K. Hendric, glad to hear the bumper sticker is really a LapTop sticker wink.gif
I'll post a photo of my UMSF stuff, which I should get next wednesday ...
And once more, we really all need the mini-button at just $ 1.50 it's a must-have for when we meet up somewhere near Jodrell Bank wink.gif

Agree on this too...
djellison
Easy way for that to happen is this... anyone who would be happy to have one or more images sold on the shop should get in touch - send me the highest res JPG they can without any words/labels etc - I will add the UMSF logo to the corner - standardise the format in some way to include the 'artist' name and media credit and add it to the store.

OK, I just ordered a T-shirt. Now I will be suitably attired for LPSC in March.

I like this idea. Can I vote for the Clouds over Meridiani image that made APOD (or Astro0's version)? That was very realistic but represented a significant creative effort beyond the NASA source material.
PhilCo126
Goodies from UMSF store arrived this evening, photo is a bit dark... I have put the well-known MER JPL-mug next to the large UMSF-mug to compare sizes wink.gif ... Note the mini-buttons at the lower end of the laptop cool.gif


djellison
Yay - email me some high res pics of it all please smile.gif What's the quality like - is it OK? The reason I cancelled the old store with the greyscale logo was that it never really looked very good. From that picture - the new stuff looks much better.

Doug

I didn't know you could mount pins on usb and network ports.. tongue.gif

It looks good. I might consider buying something too -but I'm cheap laugh.gif

seriously, wait and see...

Although perhaps not quite what you are looking for, there is stuff like that available:

http://www.ehartwell.com/calendars/

I have no connection with that business other than as a happy customer of the large format Cassini calendar. The quality of the printing is excellent; glossy, heavy weight paper with good contrast and saturation.

Airbag.
PhilCo126
Couldn't resist to put a day light photo, well-known Mars globe and MER model give an idea of the scale smile.gif
I'm very pleased with the quality of the UMSF store and will order some clothing next wink.gif
djellison
I've added a couple more products - I stopped short of an UMSF thong. I've also taken the logo off the back of the T-shirt smile.gif

Doug

Doug:

I wath just about to buy a thong, too!

I'm doing a thpot on BBC 1 next Thunday evening (with my friendth Ygor, Ygor, and Ygor), and I wath going to tell everyone what a great thite UMSF ith but now I won't be able to.

Oh, well, I never wanted to be on 'Thongth of Praithe' anyway...

I just received my first order, a mug and a toddler t-shit. I have found in the past that things like this can be cheap quality, but not this stuff. The mug is large and solid and the shirt is a well-stitched heavy quality cotton.

Here's the mug, I'll post a picture of the shirt when ElkGroveMark wakes up from his nap.

The only thing I wasn't impressed with with the 'old' stuff was the clothing, and I designed this new logo specifically so it would look better for that. The old mug, coaster, badge etc looked good - but I think the colour was a 'must have' to give them something extra.

I've had my old mug for 18 months or so - I've found that putting it thru the dishwasher isn't too good for it - it's begun to peel the 'sheen' a little - might have been a symptom of the printing process that they've fixed, might still be a problem.

Best sellers...

8 bumper stickers, 4 grey T-shirts, buttons and mugs all as 2. No one's gone for the teddy bear smile.gif (I'm tempted)

You know - seing UMSF on some one elses monitor feels really really wierd...don't know why smile.gif

I have to say, this thread is a very clever marketing ploy tongue.gif

Just ordered myself the Ginormagantuan mug. biggrin.gif
helvick
I've got to agree, the marketing is working on me at least. smile.gif - T-Shirt, button and bumper\Laptop sticker order just went in.
PhilCo126
Well, don't forget that You're helping Doug keeping UMSF forum up & running... and the items are superb ...
Another mug and polo for me for my Valentine's wink.gif laugh.gif

I got these last week, first time to wear it. I like it, very simple but stylish.
