The way they're set up, they have to be either sold one at a time, or
if they're sold in groups, the same one quote on all of them.

BTW, for those who've asked...a blue "you can get more with a kind word
and a 2x4" shirt has been added to the list because some folks weren't
sure about the pink.

Not sure if my other message got through, since google seems to have
glitched...to this question, I'll see what I can do.

Meanwhile, a question...should volume 3, which has the first half of
season two, with the intro to Sheridan's character, come out around
December 15th for gift-giving, or should it be held until late January?

I'll see what I can do about this one.

BTW, I'm trying to decide whether to put volume 3 out -- the first half
of season two, with the intro to Sheridan, and a bunch of other stuff
-- out on around December 15th, or wait until late January, given the
holidays. But I know some folks might want that out in time for
gift-giving. Y'all have any preferences?

The logo, and the specific images from B5, are owned by WB and cannot
be used. I can use the name of the station, and the show, in a casual
kind of way, because they are from that show, but images and logos are
a no-no legally.

BTW, a couple of small updates.

Appparently some of our Canadian brethren (and sisthern? sistern?) to
the North have been hit with GST because Cafe Press isn't correctly
labeling their boxes. So if folks up there want to hold off on their
orders on stuff for a bit (it might take a couple of weeks to
straighten this out), there's a way to carry over the discount for
y'all.

Also...we're tweaking some of the quote stuff to make it look spiffier,
so a few things will be coming off in a bit for a while as we make it
better. Just FYI.

We actually tried that -- and it's Serpentine Bold, btw -- but it's
actually hard to read on some things, like shirts, so a clearer font
was chosen.

This is what we're doing with the tweaking...adjusting some of the
colors and backgrounds to make them look stronger.
