Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Update!

On the VH07V Facebook page, I recently posted a pic (on the right) that was sent in from a friend. It was of her friends/family sporting some VH07V shirts! Yay! Mahaloz Lori! And for you others who already got the shirts or stickers, keep sending dem photos in. I've been trying to post one to the page every day.

Before my trip, I placed another order for about 200 more shirts. Those should be ready to pick up any day now hopefully. Once I get them in, I'll continue with the sales and pass outs and will even try to find some time to set up the online shopping cart thang (*cross your fingers*).

A few of you let me know that you've ordered your shirts from Novel-T World at Ward Warehouse, so mahalo for that! I think they still have some Ls and XLs left.

I'll be tossing some of my VH07V shirts into the crowd at the last UH Men's Basketball home game this Saturday (03/03). Look for me on the court during some breaks and at halftime to catch one! :)

I might get a booth at a BIG show in late April! More news on that once it's confirmed, but if so, for those of you who would like to pick up some shirts & stickers from me, maybe you can visit me there! ;) I'll probably have a few new colors by then too! If I didn't get to you 6 remaining VH07V Free T-shirt Winners yet by then, maybe you can swing by too! We'll turn it into a pseudo WWE `Ohana gathering! :)


It's Academic!

Didja see your boy on TV last night???

As Oceanic Time Warner Cable's representative, I recorded three video questions that aired during last night's contest featuring Hanalani Schools, McKinley High and Waiakea High.

If you missed it, don't worry, you won't die. :P But if you're desperate (or a little loopy in the head :P ) and actually want to watch me babble away, they tell me it's supposed to rebroadcast at 6:30pm on Sunday 3/04 and again on 5/28 and 6/03, and also show up on the It's Academic Hawaii web site.


Have a happy VH07V Wednesday y'all! Shoooots!

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Update!

WOWZAS!!! The VH07V T-shirts have been "selling" like hotcakes! Mahalo for all of your support so far! I put "selling" in quotes because I'm not really in full blast mode yet, and I've also been doing a few giveaways here and there as well. But still, from my original order of 20 dozen (240), I'm down to only a handful of shirts... In just one week! I gotta re-order again awredde! But I guess that's a good thing! At least people are interested in buying da buggahs. Either that, or my friends and family (and extended friends and family) are just being nice to support. Haha, nah!

Eventually, when I get time, I'll build a shopping cart site so everyone can just order um direct dat way. I'm also thinking about doing a craft fair or two to get a feel for how the public (not just friends and family) reacts to it. And don't forget, there is also a limited supply of Ls and XLs at Novel-T World at Ward Warehouse.

Ho! Fulfillment is not easy I tell you! Of the 15 of you VH07V Free T-shirt Winners, I successfully delivered to 8 of you. Ova half way dea! But actually, I stay waiting for a response from 4 of you too (color preference) so once I get that, I can keep jammin'.

Here are the colors that I will be re-ordering. Click on each link to see what they look like:

I'm also looking to do a new color combo and just posted a poll on the VH07V Facebook page. White on Green is in the lead so far. Whatchu tink? She go? Cast your vote if you want to see a different color combo next!

POLL:
What color combination would you
most like to see next for VH07V?

Also, what are your thoughts on a women's line? A keiki line? Hats? I've been getting a lot of requests for those three so far too. Annnnywaaaaay...


Have a happy VH07V Wednesday y'all! Shoooots!

Sorry peeps. Nevah had time fo' tally all da scores fo' last week's Where In Hawaii contest, but in the meantime, here's the news that you've all (all three of you have) been waiting for...

Our VH07V clothing line is now a reality!!!

Yay! It's been a long time coming, but I'm soooo stoked that the day is finally here... And the shirts came out pretty kick-butt too if you ask me! 8) Check um out go check um goooo!

Which is your favorite?
I personally like the Light Green on Blue action, but, although you can't really tell from the picture, the Light Blue on Black is pretty sick too. But like I said, they all came out awesome!

Like Order?
I'm still in soft-launch mode, so I haven't really told too many people. The online shop is not even ready yet. But if you no can wait, drop me a line at world.wide.ed (at) gmail.com! I have sizes S-3XL in all styles and can do after (work) hour deliveries. ;) There's also a limited supply of Ls & XLs at Novel-T World at Ward Warehouse. (Mahalo to aunty Stephanie!) And yes, no worries, I still got shirts put aside for our FREE VH07V T-shirt Winners! :)

Let me know what you think!
I wanna hear from you! The term "VH07V" (spells "Aloha" upside down, but is pronounced "Volve" for this brand), is a part of this blog's culture, so I'm really interested in hearing what you guys think about the shirts in the comment area below. Also, if you have any suggestions on how to get the word out shmall kine, holla! Shoot den!

Weekly T-Shirt Update!

Woo hoo! The printing job is scheduled to start this Thursday so we are SUUUUUUUPER close! I'm going to visit them after work either today or tomorrow to finalize and approve the colors.

The stickers are still being passed out here and there, but I've kinda slowed down so I can bundle them together when I pass out the shirts.

Sorry so vague... Just don't want to jump the gun with everything before I'm ready. I promise to announce everything here when I go live. :)
