Advice on T-shirts
If you're on our email promotion list, just ignore this email. It's exactly the same. Or you can make a comment here if you didn't to the email.
With the holiday season around the corner, we thought we'd give you an additional option for gift-giving: the official Providence Granola Project t-shirt! Our initial design incorporated a selection of Recipe of the Month labels, but to replicate the variety and richness of the colors on a t-shirt would have been cost-prohibitive. We may offer that design as some kind of poster, but for now we have settled on three options for the final t-shirt product.
Two of the options involve a fuller presentation of our signature "deep seadivers" image whose connection to granola is still a bit elusive even to us. We just liked the image and it's taken on a life of its own. Another option is the simple oval logo. A third is a tryptic of sorts that provide a glimpse out submarine-like portholes. (These are quick mock-ups--the finished product will be more polished.)
So here is where we can use your help. Two questions (but one is a two-parter).
Question one: would you buy a fashionably colored Providence Granola t-shirt ($19) and if so do you have suggestions on colors (we plan to go with a top quality, "perfect weight" style t-shirt in a darkish palate of colors including black).
Question two: which design do you like best? Option 1, 2, or 4? (3 has already bit the dust). We're leaning towards 1 but need some confirmation. (Or would you concur with some facebook responders who like a small logo (2) on the front with some form of 1 or 4 on the back?
Your input will really help us as we move forward with ordering t-shirts to be ready for the holidays. We plan to offer a gift special that combines a sampler of 3 different bags of granola/muesli and a shirt, so even if you don't want one for yourself, what would you be excited about giving someone else?
Thanks, as always. Back in our days at Brown we designed some killer t-shirts, but we're not in our twenties anymore and sometimes feel a little fashion-challenged.
We know we are a very lucky little company to have such invested granola-buyers. We hope to get our order in next week, so get your druthers in soon.
