The Terminal T is back

Terminal T shirt frontWhen we launched the site 4½ years ago, one of the things that we did was go about getting a t-shirt printed that summed up the goals and aspirations of the site. We had no idea that the “It’s Nice to Have You in Birmingham” t-shirt would be as popular as it was among our early readers.

We figured it was time to bring the shirt back – partially because of the number of folks asking about it, partially as a way to help spread the word about our video series and partially as a first step in securing additional funds to help expand the site’s offerings.

We’re hoping that at least 250 people will order either a black (or white) Terminal T as a way to show your support for the website in the coming days. The shirts cost $15 each, with an additional $5 being charged for shipping ($20 total). We do not have a physical location for pick-up at this time so we’ll only be delivering via U.S. Mail.

We’ll see you at TechMixer tonight!

tmexpologoThere’s a rumor that Jason Donaldson, our newest staff member/intern/all-around nice guy, may actually make an appearance – there may be others too…

There’s another one that says that I’m giving away two (2) white Terminal Ts this evening at our TechMixer booth…

Both are true – though I’m not quite sure when Jason’s getting there.

Come on by, say hello, enter for the t-shirts… yeah, that’s about it. Well, that and check out the 68 booths and mingle with all of the other folks (at least 1200 signed up so far) at McWane Science Center tonight from 5-8 p.m. Here’s the program to guide you through (we’ll be there right when you walk in – look for the orange).

Did we mention it’s FREE?! You aren’t able to pre-register anymore, but it shouldn’t take that long to do so once you arrive tonight!

More ways to show your love for The Magic City

We’ve been quietly selling t-shirts on the site for several months now sporting the 1950s slogan “It’s Nice to Have You in Birmingham” and they’ve been fairly well received. There’s now another t-shirt that you’ll have a chance to purchase in the near future .

i am birmingham shirt design. lynseleanne.comlynseleanne.com plans to begin selling shirts with the phrase “i am birmingham” on them, doing a really creative play on the organization of the letters in the city’s name. Head on over to learn more about why and how you can get one. Go on, we’ll wait…

By the way, we anticipate getting a shipment of white Terminal Ts in the next two weeks – so if you’re interested, let us know and we’ll let you know when they arrive.

Terminal Ts are available on the site

Some of you may have stumbled across our clothing options on Zazzle.com (and we don’t plan on taking that down yet) but we realized that we wanted to offer our shirt for a little less. So if you haven’t been on the site we know you haven’t seen this new ad in the far right column yet:

UPDATE: So, about our t-shirts…

UPDATE: 4.18.2008, 9 p.m., We figured it was time to let you know that we actually have started selling t-shirts in house…Click here to learn more about it. UPDATE: 12.18.2007, 10 a.m., After some discussions with our supplier, we’ve decided to hold off on launching our new store until mid-January. They have assured me that anyone that orders any of the shirts currently available will receive them within 7 business days. While that may not necessarily get you a shirt in time for Christmas Day, you can extend the giving season through those twelve days of Christmas…This is also where I remind you that black short-sleeve Terminal Ts are currently available at Highlands Trading Company in Five Points South and beginning today at Java and Jams downtown (20th Street near 4th Avenue North). The price will be between $18 – $20 a piece.

We just found out that some of you that ordered Terminal Ts have not received them. We have just learned of the problem and apologize profusely (yes, I just used the word profusely in a blog post). I’m aware that you’ve been refunded your payments; if you haven’t, please let me know. If you are still interested in purchasing a t-shirt to show your love for Birmingham’s hub for conversation (especially during these final days of the holiday season), I’ve got two possible solutions. I’ll have some black t-shirts with me on Thursday over at Bottletree if you’re interested for $15 a piece. Your second option is to visit our new online store tomorrow morning and pick up a shirt there (though it will cost a little more).If you’re wanting a shirt in a different color (including, starting tomorrow, orange) , a long sleeve shirt, or just want to see what else we came up with to put the logo on, the online store may be the better option. Plus, if you’re interested in getting those items as Christmas gifts, there’s still time to order them and have them arrive.
