We wish to expand our image by providing a couple novelty T-Shirts based around our products. There may also be interest in also offering simple logo based branded T-Shirts.
Our idea is to have these be a means for us to donate a portion to a local charity we wish to support and to give us and others a means to show off. A preference will be for designs that represent the aesthetic of the brand and the product while being lightly humorous.
What we are considering to represent:
- J&L Pogonotrophics brand
- Junk Oil
- The Original Beard Butter
- J+L Apothecary
The method for how we will offer these is through a 3rd party Print on Demand service that can dropship directly to a customer. We may also look into having a few made to sell in person.
We have long said we would not get into branded merchandise. The caveat being, that if we did offer branded merchandise it would have to be for charitable reasons.
What we are looking for is a person or team that can create appropriate artwork that is ties to our old-style look for J&L Pogonotrophics, using appropriate era flare and style. Preference is for someone locally (Chicago) that has some level of experience in T-shirt or poster art design and avoid cartoon like styling. We are willing to pay a fair market value for the work. Artist will get credit for the work. Their logo or signature should be placed appropriately within the design.
A slogan or phrase we wish to include is still being developed. The ETA for introducing such is not determined. It may have to wait until after the Holidays.
If you are interested, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org If readily available, send a couple example images that reflect similar work.
