VH07V is featured in this week's Midweek!

* The other week, I was interviewed by Midweek columnist Alana Folen for a column she writes called "Entrepreneurs". What an exciting honor! I had no idea when it was supposed to come out until some friends recently started telling me "Congratulations!" I didn't get my copy in the mail yet, but hopefully soon! Mahaloz Alana! For now, here's a link to the article online: "New Clothing Line Promotes Aloha" and below is a photo of the article that our very own carokun took and sent to me.

VH07V SPOTTED!

How's this for a cool "Spotted" shot!? Big Island blogger extraordinaire Damon Tucker wore his VH07V shirt while going skydiving with the folks at Skydive Hawaii. Here's his blog on the experience, and below is his video. He said he purposely asked them to flip him over - MID-AIR! - to show off the VH07V upside-down! Now that's a true loyalist! ;)



Taking VH07V to new heights! Damon Tucker does his 4th dive with Skydive Hawaii with his VH07V shirt on! Sick!

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Updates!

* My "fill-in" order to replenish low quantities of existing VH07V stock is IN! I've been so crazy busy with everything else though that it's just been sitting in the boxes at storage for the last week or so. :(

* Speaking of storage, things have been picking up so much that I've had to upgrade the size of my unit at Hawaii Self Storage. Mahalos to the friendly staff there for helping to make the transition an easy one! Photos of the move to come!

* Speaking of things picking up, here's a fun little thing we recently did through social media. My super talented, yet very unassuming designer friend mocked up four sample designs for VH07V and we put them to a vote. The idea was that if one of them got super good kine response, that would be the next design to be released. It turned out that all designs got about the same amount of positive feedback.

Whatchu guys tink? Maybe you can be the tie-breaker? Which design do you like best? #1, #2, #3 or #4?

Design #1

  5. Paco:

    Woohoo! You're back. #3 is SSC - stan sheriff center on the UH campus.


  6. Takeshi:

    I think I like design #3 the best, but they're all pretty good!


  7. Paco:

    I like design #2 and #4 the best. I would wear those. I would like #3 better if the design was on the back and a small design on the left/right chest.


  8. Paco:

    #3 SSC is on lower campus road in Manoa.

  9. Paco:

    Design #1 for some reason reminds me of a UH athletics shirt. Might be good to wear at UH sporting events


  10. carokun:

    Photo 2 - dish looks like Acai Bowl.

    Haha. Thanks for posting. :)


  11. rayboyjr:

    :cool: Good Morning Errr-One!!! :cool:

    ... hey Ed ... And ... we're BACK too ... well some of us ... but you know it's still summer!!! ... lovin' the beach ... and the movies ... and the weather ... that's where I've been ... I don't know where you've been ...

    ... duh!!! ... obviously I never know where you are ...

    ... Have a Good One Everyone!!! ...


  12. rayboyjr:

    ... sorry, I gotta at least get some guesses in ...

    Points for Photo #1...
    * First names of the two girlies in the shot:

    ... Meagan? ... Ashley? ... Hannah? ... Sarah? ... Taylor? ... Olivia? ... Lauren? ... Kayla? ...

    ... btw ... glad to see that you know the names of the girls in your picture ... and you not just randomly taking "stalker" photos of "girlies" around town ... haha ...


  13. soogs:

    no guesses for me this week. but i'd like to vote on design #2. however, you should consider doing them all cuz they are all sweet. i predict another move to a bigger storage unit soon.


  14. che:

    #1 Mokuleia


  15. rayboyjr:

    ... oh yeah ... the shirts ...

    ... I'd wear them all ... but I prefer #2, 3 & 4 ...

    ... #1 just looks too familiar with the color and lettering ... nice ... but reminds me of the HAWAII 2012 shirts ... or Athletic Supporter shirts ... or something like that ...

    ... #2 is my favorite design ... love the simplicity ... but not to crazy about the color combo ... haha ... mainly because it reminds me of the Silver & Black ... yeah ... Da Raiders ... grrrrr!!! ... can you do that on something other than a black shirt? ...

    ...#3 & 4 are really similar ... nice, crisp and clean ... but I think the double V symbol in #3 is too large ... the focus should really be on your brand VHO7V ... unless you're going to stick with that as your logo ...


  16. kamaaina808:

    Howdy-do, BL. :) 8/08 represent!

    #2 pic acai bowl - guessing Lanikai Juice or maybe Down to Earth - but I don't know that either one would serve in a regular bowl.... so idk for sure.

    Hmm. I like #3 /design/ but in #2's color scheme... if you can call gray on black a color scheme - Raider's be danged. ;-) But Blue & gray or some other contrasting color (light blue?) would be nice, too. And like Paco suggests, having a large design on the back & a small VHO7V on the front (or just in the center like your orig. shirts) would be super. Not too fond of large logos on the front, like guys wear, but I like the shirt styles... which means I end up buying most of my T's @ Walmart & Sears. :-P


  17. tweetpeep22:

    cheee hooo 11 points! awesome... but i am drawing a blank for this one today. gotta think.


  18. Chicken Grease:

    Design # 1 is best. Just in time for football Warriors season. I vote design # 2 for 2nd place.

    Read the Midweek article. Great! The brand/line will do well!


  19. Coconut Willy:

    What the...?
    Dunno. No clue.

    maybe #2 Mocha Java?


  20. Coconut Willy:

    #2: Diamond Head Cove?


  21. snow:

    only guess would have been SSC for #3 but paco beat me to it! my pick for t-shirt design is #2... then, #1, #3 and #4. #1 is a good UH game t-shirt, like others have mentioned... maybe it's because of the colors!


  22. bB:

    #1 shirt would be good for uh football.

    i like #2 and #4 shirts.


  23. Kage:

    I would wear shirt #2. #3 is good too.
