SHIRTS! (and to a lesser extent DVDs)
October 20th, 2010

Posted by Matt

Are you one of the many LRR fans who ordered themselves a LRR Starburst shirt from our recent shirt design contest? Are you one of the many LRR fans who was starting to wonder if they were ever going to arrive? Well, take heed! They’re on the way! As I type this post the LRR crew are toiling away making sure that every single shirt gets bundled up in a nice little package for delivery right to your doorstep (or mailbox, or apartment unit, or P.O. Box, etc.)! That means the overwhelming majority (if no all) will be in the mail

and on their way by the end of the week!

Additionally, if you ordered a Hustle DVD with your shirt, you’ll be pleased to know that they’re shipping together, and you’ll find your self in possession of both as soon as they arrive.  We are sorry that it took so long to get these out, but there were a variety of hangups involved that were beyond our control, and they delayed us significantly. The shirts only arrived at the LRR office this morning, so we really are trying to get them out to you as quickly as we can possibly manage.

We hope that, despite the delays, you’re looking forward to wearing yours just as much as we’re looking forward to wearing our own.

If you didn’t order a shirt or DVD, you can still do so over at http://loadingreadyrun.com/store. The surplus Starburst shirts aren’t up yet (though they will be soon), but the Hustle DVDs are. Remember to check back for the shirts though, because they are limited, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.

Cheers!

Starburst Update: It’s ON

This is just a quick update to remind everyone that the Vigafre’s fantastic Starburst T-shirt design is still available for pre-order, but not for much longer.

After surviving much scrutiny at our hands, and at yours, this fantastic design will be up for order for another 13 days. I’m happy to report that it’s passed the fifty-print threshold and will–for sure–be printed. That said, remember that we will only print extras of the most popular colour combination, so you get the most selection if you pre-order … and a matching button :) .

In related news, the commodoreHUSTLE DVDs are hot off the presses and on their way to us. We’re having some rush-shipped to us at PAX, so hit us up for them there if you like. Otherwise, we’ll have the rest of our stock, ready to fulfill orders by the time the Starburst pre-order is ready to go. You can order them now on the store.

Also, stay tuned for some more exciting merch news once we get back from PAX!

UPDATE: Also important—the Robot posters actually got mailed out yesterday, and should be finding their way to their owners within the next couple weeks (shipping time is always variable). Watch out for them!

New Pre-Order: Starburst (by request) PLUS commodoreHUSTLE DVD set!

After a six-week process, I’m happy to announce that we have a winner for our first ever T-shirt open call. That winner is Kyle Nichols (Vigafre), whose Starburst design pleased crew and fans alike to net him a design buyout, and us an awesome new shirt … which I’m also happy to announce you can pre-order right now over on the LoadingReadyRun store. While we normally offer only one colour variation for the ink on our shirts, we’ve opted to offer two versions this time, so keep in mind when you order that you will have to choose both a shirt colour and an ink colour.

As of today, you have 26 days to pre-order this shirt. Assuming it gets 50 pre-orders, we’ll print a run, and ship shirts out to everyone who ordered them. If not, we’ll refund everyone’s money and try a different design. Pre-orders also get a free starburst button to compliment the shirt, which you can see over on the store page.

Huge thanks to everyone who participated in the open call, it’s been a wild ride.

In other exciting news, the long-in-process commodoreHUSTLE DVD is complete, and being printed as we speak. We’ve decided to open up orders for this as well, with the caveat that we will not be shipping them until after PAX, when the Starburst pre-order closes. We are primarily opening orders early to allow folks who pre-order the new shirt to combine shipping, though that shouldn’t stop you from ordering one now, even if you don’t want the shirt … you’ll just have to wait a couple weeks until we have them available to ship out. The Hustle DVD includes all eleven episodes, the epilogue, commentaries, bloopers and bonus features.

Both these items have been a while in coming, and it’s great to be able to finally get them out to all of you :) .
