So the tshirts and mugs are in.    I need to make a proper we page for them.

For now, I'll upload some pics, but here is a video of the glass mug being used for "coffee art"

Neat!  Cool use of the text as a background, lots of good "hooks" in there.

should you separate your urine from your poop? And other great topics on a coffee mug! That would be a great conversation starter.

Eli and I drink out of our Permies cups everyday! We meant to give one away but both fell in love w them and we're known to fight over favorite objects so we kept them both (selfish!). We usually don't go for the same style but we both love our Permies cups!!! When you are ready to branch out into girl t-shirts let me know and I'd order one. Thanks Paul!

Have you done the coffee art trick yet?

Have you read all the little obnoxious bits on it yet?  It took me a full day to fit all that text on there.  And then it turns out I made the text too small, so then I made the text 10% bigger and spent a whole nuther day doing it again!

I had no idea the mug was so cool.  I hope to get my darlin to read and take an intrest in it.  Field trial season starts next week and I plan to take my mug to see what kind of conversations it may start.

So the place where I got the t-shirts gave me a 20% off coupon.  And I've had two requests from women asking for "girl shirts".  So, with the discount, the minimum purchase price would be $280.  And I'm trying to think:  I haven't sold very many shirts and mugs so far.  And I don't see much noticeable difference in traffic due to shirts and mugs, so buying even more seems kinda silly.

Is there anybody using the site right now that found out about the site via mug or shirt?  Even one person?

One thing I didn't like about the old mugs is that I thought they were a little on the small side.  13 ounces.  So the new ones are way bigger.  20 ounces.

Everything else is the same.  Same obnoxious stuff printed on the mugs.  Same ability for coffee art.  And even though it is bigger, I bought a much larger quantity, so the price ended up only slightly higher. 

I have seven of the old mugs left, plus some of the old mugs that had printing defects.  The company I bought them from gave me my money back on those.  So, here is what I'm gonna do:  the new mugs will have the same price as the old mugs, ten bucks.  If anybody buys a t-shirt or new mug they can take their pick of adding in an old mug for five bucks (without printing error) or one with a printing error for zero bucks.

On the swag page it says to send me an email. 

In the email you tell me what you want and I'll tell you how much money it will be - although everybody in the US should be able to figure that out.

Then I'll ask you to send that much money to me via paypal:  paul at richsoil dot com.

I was kinda hoping that I could process a dozen orders all at once, but now it looks like you might be the only order!
