Pensblog Storeblog

This all started last week when we saw somebody made shirts and hoodies to capitalize on Blackhawks coach Denis Savard telling his team to commit to the organization...commit to the Indian.

We noticed that they blatantly used part of the Blackhawks logo on the shirt, so we hurried and grabbed a couple before the site was taken down.



We placed our order on Monday, January 28th at 11:34 PM.
CafePress.com said to expect the order by February 6th.

Stunning the world, CafePress got us the hoodies by Friday, February 1st.
And we were as impressed as you can get by the quality, look, and feel of the shirt.


................................................................................................

LAWYERBLOG

So we're breaking out our own online store.

We did some research and feel that we aren't interfering with any of the Penguins organization's intellectual properties, copyrights, and/or trademarks.

You always see those jobbers in the parking lot of Hoss's Steak & Sea House selling black and gold Steelers stuff anyway.

As far as we know, we seem to have a good rapport with the Penguins.
The only contact we had with them was when we got the leaked pictures of the Penguins uniform, which we took down at their request.

If we are in fact skating on thin ice, NPI, we're sure the Penguins organization will contact us and notify us of any infringements.

We aren't using a likeness of the Penguins logo, nor are we using likenesses of players names or numbers.

You would think that any nicknames that we and people in commentorblog come up with on our own are our respective intellectual properties, if we chose to establish a copyright on them.

...............................................................................................

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY


Here's how CafePress works.

They make these shirts to order, so just imagine like you're walking into Sheetz and tapping the MTO screen.


When making the shirts, they give you a set price, and then they give you the option of marking the price up on your own.
CafePress says they'll sell this shirt for $18.99.

We bumped it up to $19.99, so we'll make $1.00 per shirt.
( Every little bit helps towards the purchase of another round of WWGRD wristbands )

Shipping and handling included, this shirt costs $24.99.

Is that a lot for a shirt?
Yeah, we wouldn't have minded something in the $12-$17 range.

Consider our stance.
Some people want these shirts to become a reality, just like the wristbands.

The only difference here is that we don't have the time or resources to go mass-produce 500 shirts in various sizes and send them out to people in a timely fashion.

CafePress is doing ALL the grunt work for us.
And by "us," we hope you understand that we mean everyone who wants a shirt.

Trust us: We want this shirt just as bad as anyone does.
Why wouldn't we go find the best combination of price and quality?

You won't hurt our feelings if you choose not to buy the shirt, because we have invested $0.00 in this endeavor.

.....................................................................................

READ CAREFULLY, PART 2

Given the nature of CafePress' website, which gives you an infinite number of possibilities as far as what graphic can go on what shirt, we have tremendously trimmed the selection down on our CafePress Store.

Imagine us putting every graphic on all 40+ sweaters and t-shirts they provide.
It was too disorienting to look that.


Would you rather have this on a long-sleeved white T-shirt?
E-MAIL US AND TELL US WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE, AND WE WILL UPDATE THE STORE ACCORDINGLY.


Do you want the gold lettering instead of the black?
E-MAIL US.

[ List of available shirt styles on CafePress.com ]

We have tons of things we can do.
But we just want to make everything easy as possible.

..............................................................................

PENSBLOG STORE

[ The Pensblog Storeblog ]

That link will take you to all the things that are for sale.
We'll be adding many more as time goes on.



As stated, we can make stuff in any form we want.
We just wanted to get some basic ideas out there to see if anyone is interested.

So, let us know what you think.
E-mail us, leave stuff in commentorblog.


If you hate our stuff, we encourage you to make your own.


.........................................................................

UPDATE: 12:01 pm

"Rock Out With Your Conk Out" Shirts have been fixed.
And are now ready


Also added some women's clothes.

More to come.

Here are two different types of :
You = Stunned
One for men, one for women.




UPDATE: 2:16 pm

Latest adds:

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Bravo, Staff. My wallet just gave you the finger.

it would be nice to have some stuff in a women's v-neck t-shirt for the girls around c-blog...

oh, and stokes, not sure if you saw my comment on the previous thread about the mini goalie sticks at McDicks, but i saw that someone is pre-selling the whole set on ebay. i'm sure that these people are charging an arm and a leg, but it's an option i suppose...

The jobber shirt is great.

Top notch work, as always.

jeff hernandez said...

what about a "sidney crosby just banged your girlfriend" t shirt, or a "JOBBER OF THE WEEK"

Wow you just made my week. If I ever see a girl wearing a Conk Block thong, well, let's just say I won't be single anymore.

What a glorious morning! Our downpayment for next season my have to wait till the deadline now. What a stunning collection! and i'm with you cg- Awesome valentines! (hint hint to my husband- b smith!)

Ashley said...

snoop - GREAT idea for the thong hahahaha

i love how we're talking about t-shirts as valentine's day presents instead of teddy bears and candy (ick)

you know you're a pens fan (and pensblog fan) when...

Andrew said...

This is the best day of my life. I'm on this like Charlie is on a Senator

Dickie Dunn said...

I concur with the mousepad/coffee mug and "STUNNED" suggestions. Would also love to see the Pensblog Charlie "Do It" in adult sizes. I'm gonna go broke.

Anonymous said...

How about more options for the 'Rock out with your conk out' shrits? Such as baseball t-shirts or shirts for the ladies.

I also like sonofatruckload's idea of a coffee mug.

Anonymous said...

i agree with ashley about having some women's t-shirts. I think it would be nice to have the baseball style long sleeve shirt in a womens shirt with the WWGRD.

Not to mention I normally wouldn't dress my dog, but I'd let my dog rock a WWGRD shirt.

whistler said...

I want that pic of brodeur slumped over facing the goal with the words "STUNNED" underneath it.

My girlfriend will disown me if I had one of those...

BlankieGirl said...

Weeeee!!! I ordered some stuff, for me and hubby! Pensblog ROCKS!!!

Greg N said...

Is the "rock out" shirt fixed yet? This is such a great day

wilsmith said...

woah. just woah.

I guess I'll be spending a bunch of dollars when I get home from work.

Cdubbs said...

Absolutely the greatest post ever. Can't wait till I get my WWGRD shirt

Dirty D said...

Really great shirts and stuff.
More ladies shirts are needed. I want to have my girlfriend wear a new tshirt to every game.

Gold with black letters:

You = Stunned

Tshirtblog is my favorite.

Pensblog Staff said...

is anyone having trouble accessing the page?


We'll be home all day, so we'l be getting some ladies stuff in there ASAP

--dr

Pensgirl said...

Matt K, that's exactly what I was coming here to say. "Stunned" = gold (the mom suggested it for a thong too - how funny is she?).

"Bing" and "Jobber of the Week" are also great ideas.

Now that I'm done whining for more, thanks to the staff for putting the time in on this. As if the wristbands weren't enough. Dedicationblog.

Ashley said...

I'm with pensgirl.

This is some serious dedication by the staff.

Merci beaucoup!!

What about a "conkblock" t-shirt?

Lady Jaye said...

Oh my, I'm going to go broke buying Pensblog tshirts... I vote for a shirt that says "Pround Member of Pensblog Commentorblog" or something less gay sounding than that. And a "Stunned" shirt would be great too. ARG too many choices. Would it be totally gay to suggest maybe having a charity tshirt to donate the proceeds to a player's charity? Or am I being too feel good and girly this morning?

snoopyjode said...

ashley, i SO WISH i could take credit for that thong idea, but it already was up on the storeblog when i checked it out this morning.

jeff hernandez, using sidney crosby's name might get the guys in hot water, but your idea is really good. so in the interest of not getting sued, here are my suggestions:

bing just banged your girlfriend (or mom, lol)

or maybe

bing scores every night

Anonymous said...

my life is complete.

Pensblog Staff said...

Ok.

Women's WWGRD have been added.

Snoop.

Bing has been added.

Working on the Conkblock shirt now

snoopyjode said...

YES YES YES YES YES!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - thanks for making my day, gentlemen!!! :)

Anonymous said...

@brett:

I actually enjoyed that Q&A answer. We were criticizing Molinari the other day for his terrible monotone garble, so it is nice to see someone give an opinion and actually show he cares what people and players think.

I'm not saying I agree with everything he said, but to me it is refreshing to see someone in the media write like that.

We need some rock out with your conk out shirts for the ladies.

Is the problem fixed with the graphic yet? I need 5 of them!

i think rob rossi is banging therrien.

and i dont know if im missing it but what is it that whitney has been doing that he would be considered a disappointment? i just dont see it.

make a mousepad

wilsmith said...

how about one that says "C-Blog Hall of Famer". I would buy one for Stoosh.


Someone come up with something clever about how Therrien never pluralizes words.

"The Ranger suck"

or "Expec the Bes"

Pensblog Staff said...

mousepad now ready

PensKitty said...

Maybe i I'm a little slow this afternoon, but how do you find the store by going directly to cafe press? I've clicked on the link from this site, but whataout when i go directly to cafe press? can someone help me?

I second or third or fourth the Conk Block City shirt. I'd be more apt to buy that one... arg I just can't decide what to buy... and now I'm debating if it would be unlucky not to wear my jersey to a game just so I can show off my WWGRD tshirt?

wingergirl said...

snoopyjode - That article kind of made my day...but man, that can't feel good. High ankle sprains blow. I remember getting one in high school, then being sidelined for six months because I re-sprained it...twice.

lady jaye - I definitely agree with the charity t-shirt.

I'm definitely going to get some of this...then have people give me blank stares on the street because
Minneapolis just won't understand.

But I'll for sure rock it to the Pens vs. Philly game on Apr. 2nd.

awesome job staff.

I like how the Flyers are still in the hunt...but, according to nhlnumbers.com, they only have 193k in cap space...that would probably be enough to purchase Floppa's diving speedo

Pensblog Staff said...

Conkblock city shirts now available

Johnny Wrath said...

Ok, I have the Therrien thing figured out. Its a longstanding problem I myself had to deal with before I bounced:

"Therrien: Carrying on the Pittsburgh tradition of boycotting the use of infinitives".

No, you may not condense it. So it shall be written, so it shall be rocked.

I just dropped four figures. Warm in my mind are all those future Gentlemen of Leisure; progenies who shall themselves mock Ottawa with the same glee as I.

Thanks PB Staff.

Crosby, apparently in the best shape of his life today.

snoopyjode said...

wingergirl, i was thinking the same thing! i've never had a high ankle sprain, but i've been through a lot with my right foot (which is now messed up for life), so i too know about foot pain. here's what stunned me: it hasn't even been three weeks since sid's injury!!! he must have either the highest threshold for pain or the biggest balls on the planet.


well, second only to GR, of course. ;)

stokes said...

wilsmith: i second that.

I just read 82 comments exulting the wonderful work, dedication, creativity of Staff, and to an extent, Cblog, for putting Storeblog together. To add another would be redundant.

Reading ThePensblog was the best decision i've ever made in my life.

War Staff and Cblog.

Now i am gripped with the question: make truck payment or blow it all on Pensblog gear? Dammit....

stokes said...

anonymous 3:17, I want to say that it should be covered under parody laws, but being that I'm about 10 yrs from finishing law school, you may want to look for a 2nd opinion.

I want to say that there's somebody in that field on here (or maybe it was LGP, or another board), so I'll leave it up to the masses.

this shit is killer. i am taking some liberties here, but my good friend, darkstar and i were talking about this last night. the awesomeness of this idea is only rivaled by the domination of "WWGRD" and conk playing as insane as this site has made me. . . Brace yourself. . . wait for it. . .

"Commit to the Conk"

truly sorry for taking any liberties dude, but the world must know. this was darkstar's idea.

wingergirl said...

snoop-they suck. The first one was the most painful experience in my life, and that includes appendicitis and more than eight hours under a tattoo needle. I had to get shot up with cortisone twice a month during those six months of rehab.

But...mine was also a total severance...if Bing's skating, his was probably (hopefully) just a stretch.

If a 'Bing scores every night' t-shirt gets made, I will definitely wear it.

To offer up some thoughts on the potential trademark infringement that could exist using the likeness of Soixant-Six...

I do believe there may be some legality issues involved with that. I don't want to say for certain, but I think using the actual likeness of a player on a shirt or something like that is not allowed.

Don't quote me on that, though.

I flunked out of law school.

Twice.

(Not kidding, either. Duquesne Univ. took my $50,000 and I took the realization that the legal field just wasn't my game. But hey, as life experiences go, how many people can say they flunked law school twice?)

Flyer Hater said...

Anybody watching the Flyers-Caps game on NHL Network right now? The Flyers' announcers are just unberable. I can't describe the hatred I have for that franchise. If there's one regret I have with the cup teams, it's that we didn't have an opportunity to beat them. Hopefully Sid can fix that in the near future.

LETS.

So far, not a bad night for the Pens.

if he crashed into the boards like sid, maybe the NHL should contact Indianapolis Motor Speedway to see how they 'softened' their walls to avoid major crashes.....
maybe line the boards with those soft, pillowy things that the pens patrol bring out (no, NOT their ASSES) during that sling-shot bowling/time wasting intermission event.....
am I the only one who would like for some moron on that sled to get caught up in the bungie cord & maybe rip their arm off ???? maybe that would bring an end to the sling-shot o' death & we could see more ADULT entertainment like they do in the Czech Repbulic:

All you need to know about the suck that is the Southeast Division is that heading into tonight's games, the Southeast Division leader would've been two points ahead of the Islanders for last place in the Atlantic Division.

Atlantic Division = the SEC of the NHL.

Today might be one of the greatest days in my history of being a Pens fan.

Crosby back on skates.

The Pensblog Storeblog opens for business. (Kudos, boys... and kudos, again!)

Tomorrow morning I leave my house at 5AM... I get on a plane... I fly to Pittsburgh. Tomorrow night at 6:30PM my black-and-gold-clad ass will be firmly planted in a seat at the Civic Arena.

I'm so excited I'm about to throw up.

When I land on Pennsylvania soil, I'm buying a Yuengling!

Look for the huge bearded guy wearing the 1992 Lemieux Stanley Cup Finals home jersey in section C27.

Pensblog staff, you'd better believe you're getting an Anthem pic from my phone for each of the next three games.

LET'S GO PENS!

Oh, and SnoopyJode, I never could get those Mike Lange ringtones made. I convered the .wav files to MP3 and loaded them onto my phone but they kept saying they were corrupt.

I'm going to try some different MP3 converters when I get back.

Staff, if I can ever get them to work, I'll send them to you via e-mail and you can post them on the site.

Storeblog is gonna increase the # of people comin to the site, its like the coriolis effect or something, probably something not even close to that, but hey...the WWGRD bumper sticker is clutch.

Sounds like alot of c-bloggers will be at the igloo tomorrow night, ill be in C3 with probably the only Christensen jersey you'll ever see. (if any1 else sports one, speak now or forever hold your peace)

I can see storeblog becoming a permanent fixture for a long time, i mean with the kind of sayings and catchphrases the staff and all the c-bloggers come up with on a weekly basis, how couldn't it. great idea.

I'd be in for a few items, but according to my dentist, expect J.S. to be showing up in brokeblog for the next year or two.

After yesterday, J.S. = stunned

I hate the fact that I'm a poor college student.

I'm definitely going to end up spending a crap load of cash in Storeblog. There's too many amazing items in there not to.

As rare as I ever comment here, I can tell you the WWGRD shirt just made my day. Only problem is, now I'm going to have to explain to all the idiots in Nevada what WWGRD means, and then who Gary Roberts is, all the while holding back my intense desire to nail them harder than Charlie nails Senators.

This post has to have set a few records:

-for number of Cblog comments.(I dont know if that's for sure and i'm not doing the research.)

-for website crashes over at cafepress.com in an 18 hour period.

-for total and complete domination of the internet. Al Gore=STUNNED.

I gave up my tickets for tomorrow because i owed someone a favor, so the Pens are almost guaranteed to win, I swear.

Fleury29: its awesome to see how excited you are about getting to the games this weekend. that's what life's all about.

Holy Shit Wilsmith - "Fortuitious Bouncers" on a girls shirt would be sick.

Obviously lettering/slogans are cheaper to design, but I would definitley buy a shirt with one of those cool skating Penguins graphics that someone designed that they use at the front of the blog every now and then, wearing the wwgrd bracelet.

Second the motion on the penguin shirt from Steve. Maybe with PENSBLOG across the top or bottom? Love the bird. The winter classic blue bird was great too.

Kudos for doing all this.

You guys rock. With your conk out.
