Pro-poly bumper stickers!

Some time ago, in response to the popular "Marriage = (man) + (woman)" bumper stickers some right-wing conservative religious groups have been handing out, I designed a poly-friendly version of the same thing. A bunch of people have asked me when I'm going to make the bumper stickers available for real, so I've finally gotten off my ass and done it.

The bumper stickers are available from my small Cafe Press store. If you click on the picture below, you'll go right to the bumper sticker itself:

(Note that the URL is not part of the actual bumper sticker design and does not appear on the bumper sticker.) There are a handful of other poly-related things on the Cafe Press store which I can't actually screen print myself.

While you're at it - how about one for "What is a family"?
A couple of years ago my ex pushed my buttons with: http://www.livejournal.com/users/cjhm/7044.html that and since then it's been one of my bete noire's about what constitutes a family.
The definition of marriage may be changing, but the definition of family changed eons ago and yet we still get idiots who think the only "real" family is a man, woman and 2.4 kids. Give me a freaking break.

Oh dear, I feel a rant coming on - and my lunch time is over *sigh* ;-)

Very nice.

Say, I've got a few idears for bumper stickers myself, but don't have the equipment to produce. I should do what you did right above, just make an image and, if someone wants to, let them run off a few.

The image software is no prob. Printing in a way that won't fade or run or look like a stenopad doodle taped to a bumper is.

That's the nice thing about Cafe press; just upload the image and let them make the bumper sticker. They're (relatively) expensive--about three bucks--but it beats trying to make the sticker yourself!

I've been thinking about putting some stuff up at CafePress myself, lately.

Have you ever actually ordered anything from them? Do you know if the quality is good? Especially on stickers and T-shirts... I'd really appreciate your opinion. :)

Cafe Press uses a dye sublimation transfer process, not screen printing. because of that, their designs on clothing don't hold up nearly as well as real screen printing does. The quality is okay, but it's not great, and they don't really stand up to multiple washing as well as one might hope. As far as quality goes, dye sub is a step above iron-on transfers but a step or two below screen printing.

Their stickers and other products seem fine, however.
