There are many ways to support Songwriters in Seattle – with your time by attending events or volunteering, and financially through the purchase of music or direct donation. Now there is another easy, fun and stylish way to give back to the creative community: Songwriters in Seattle merchandise! We are proud to announce the launch of the official SiS online store at CafePress.com. When buying SiS merchandise, not only are you contributing financially to our cause, but you are publicly showing your support and spreading the word. Let’s have a look at just a few of the wide variety of initial offerings.
First off, we have four design treatments of the logo, the original circle version by Jill Christoffel, The full name/logo/website rectangle by Chris Klimecky, then two cool new shirt designs by Kimberly Newland: the musicians of SiS and the stylized acoustic guitar.
Within each of these sections of the online store, you’ll find the categories of items you can choose from to focus your search. In the case of Kimberly’s two designs, only men’s and women’s shirt styles are available. Here are a few examples of each:
The name/logo/website rectangle is designed for promotion and the items associated with it are, too! Magnets, bumper stickers, bags, notecards, buttons, calendars, laptop skins, and more. Here are a few examples of this one in use:
Last, but certainly not least, is the original circular logo. One of the cool things about this design is that it’s super flexible and looks great on just about anything – and I mean anything! This section of the store has the most to offer, so take a minute and see what might tickle your SiS fancy. Here is just the tip of the iceberg:
So the holidays are coming up – could SiS merchandise fit on your wish list? Maybe there’s an enthusiastic musician you know who would like to display his or her support for the organization in a cool new way? Maybe you’d like to doubly support SiS by purchasing something that you then donate as a contest prize? Or a promotional item that you buy then spread around for the group to use (stickers, magnets, buttons, etc.)? Lastly, if you have ideas for new designs or other products you’d like to see, we are definitely open to expanding this store in the future. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to contribute in this way.
Thank you so much for your continued support – we hope you enjoy the SiS online store!
