Normally I prefer plain clothes, but I have a few funny (nerd humor) tshirts. I bought them at open source software conferences. Would do the same regarding band tshirts or alike being at a concert. Then the piece of clothing has a more special meaning I think. It's not only funny/cool/whatever, you'll remember the situation you bought it, too.
It's kind of time consuming to pick through everything, but I buy most of my patches from sellers on etsy, there's a pretty good variety and people can leave reviews so you know whether someone is legitimate or not. Either that or I just search for designs I like and cut stencils with an X-acto - old fabric and acrylic paint (this shit never comes out of anything, and if you're really worried about it cracking from washing/drying you can mix it with textile medium) will suffice.
I make all my own stencils, then use whatever cloth and paint I find along the way. I'm currently selling patches at Ranch Records in Bend, OR. They seem to be very popular. I'll be back on the road this summer if anybody Wants to trade patches or stencils.
The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
Buy Matt a Beer
$60.00 of $75.00
Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
Feed Matt a Burrito
$60.00 of $100.00
Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
Finance the Shopping Cart
$60.00 of $200.00
Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
