That's a really good call, I think I had it set to 600 wide thinking that the smaller screen resolutions would need to scroll if I made it larger. I musta just gotten the dimension reversed in my head, since obviously 800 wide is what I should be shooting for.I would use as much of the screen as you can fit the design on without having horizontal scrolling on 800 x 600.
Oh, I have a FAQ and Help link, but the poster below you says the buttons weren't working for them. So perhaps they didn't show for you either. But yeah, a more elaborate contact and about me page would be good.You might also want to add some pages to your site (about, faq, contact, etc).
Yeah, I think my market is definitely a niche one, but so far I've been doing a lot better then I expected. Of course I'm not any sort of big player, just a dude with a spreadshirt account, and don't have a marketing budget or anything. But still, It's been really cool so far.I am completely confused by your designs. Some of the strangest that I have ever seen. I guess that's a good thing though. Perhaps there is niche for this sort of thing.
Yeah, I've been running the shop for 5 weeks now, and that's one of the designs I've had since I opened. I'm pretty sure it's also the only shirt I opened with that I haven't sold a single copy of. Ironically it's one of the top 3-4 designs I've had visitors compliment me on, but clearly it gives some people a chuckle but no one wants to risk being seen in it. =)The Abu Ghraib Christmas is brilliant. Id be interested to know if people will actually but it though. Its just so offensive.
Ewww, the buttons not working is bad news... Any idea what might cause that?The FAQ and the Help buttons wouldn't work for me (IE6).
I'd mess a bit with your header/button section to create a more integrated feel, imo.
Well that's a good question, and one I haven't solved yet. I don't do any advertising beyond my MySpace page, Signing up for t-shirt countdown, the occasional on topic Fark comment and what hits the spreadshirt mainpage. But I'm a really small operation at this point, not a big player in the t-shirt game, I only move an average of 13 shirts a week.Jeremy, what advertising method do you use?
Looks to me like your designs are designs that no one would search for by keyword, so I'm wondering how they find out about your t-shirts.
Did you get the tiger bomb idea from Tiger Balm?
