Threadless Now Doing Print

You can now get your favorite shirt designs on print from Thread­less. They are start­ing w/ a lim­it­ed run of 250 per design; cost­ing at about $35 at the moment (size 18“x24”). I just emailed them won­der­ing if they’ll be hook­ing that up w/ a fram­ing ser­vice as well—I think they are per­son­al­ly if the cost ain’t too much. It just makes sense.

It seems Thread­less has moved their “Print” sec­tion over to the reigns of Society6, and blik.

Valleyschwag to open up shop!

In the next sev­er­al days we will unveil the Val­leyschwag Gen­er­al Store, where our cus­tomers will be able to pur­chase future issues of our famous schwag bags. And by pop­u­lar demand, we will be offer­ing some of our most request­ed schwag items for sale.

This store replaces our sub­scrip­tion ser­vice alto­geth­er. We will noti­fy peo­ple by email when a new issue of Val­leyschwag is avail­able, giv­ing them the first oppor­tu­ni­ty to place an order at the Gen­er­al Store…

Amazon Launches aStore Beta

Amazon aStore Beta

Just received news through the Ama­zon Asso­ciates Team that their aStore has gone to beta. What is it?

aStore vast­ly expands on our cur­rent link type offer­ings by giv­ing you the abil­i­ty to build a ded­i­cat­ed shop­ping area that can be embed­ded with­in, or linked to from, your web­site.

Build your own pro­fes­sion­al online store fea­tur­ing Amazon.com prod­ucts in min­utes with no pro­gram­ming skills required. Because aStore is a ded­i­cat­ed shop­ping area for your site, it is a great com­pli­men­ta­ry prod­uct for your exist­ing Ama­zon prod­uct links. Vis­i­tors to your site get a pro­fes­sion­al shop­ping expe­ri­ence through your unique selec­tion of prod­ucts and cat­e­gories and the fea­tures of Amazon.com you have cho­sen includ­ing Cus­tomer Reviews, List­ma­nia, and more. The check­out process is com­plet­ed through Amazon.com.

You may view the demo store to see an exam­ple of a stand-alone store.

Flickr at SF Apple Store

Looks like the great Flickr staff will be bless­ing the SF Apple Store on the 2nd of August, 6–7:30pm. I’ll pro­l­ly check it out with James. Should be inter­est­ing and fun. Hope to get some Flickr schwag—maybe they have some secret stash =)

More info here.

Mean­while, I tried RSVPing for the event using Upcoming.org. I signed up with them but haven’t got­ten any con­fir­ma­tion email that usu­al­ly takes just sec­onds to receive. After some test­ing, it looks like it might be my mail serv­er. Oh well, I hope it does­n’t fill up.

They seem to be the talk of the town late­ly. If I can recall, they just moved a cou­ple of weeks ago. Good times hope­ful­ly. Maybe they’ll even announce a “New-In-Town Fickr Par­ty” of some sort… just maybe.

Any­ways, the Apple Store is across the street (lit­er­al­ly). Just gonna cruise on by after work. I can’t wait to meet these cool peeps.
