You know, for some reason, it seems like the world could really use these right now.
A few years ago, flyers like this appeared on lampposts in downtown Manhattan. A little while after that, an artist friend made a t-shirt with this design on it, but they sold out rather quickly.
So I decided to make a batch of these. I had no idea how many I should make, all I know is that my guess this week is much lower than my naively optimistic guess a few weeks ago when the idea came to me.
But the combination of voting with our dollars, expressing opinions with our t-shirts, and dressing our kids to amuse ourselves makes an Arabic I [Heart] NY onesie the perfect vehicle for parents to show their love for freedom, respect, and the city, both now, and in the future your kid will help realize.
The onesies are Bella Infant 100% cotton, in sizes 3-6m, 6-12m, 12-18m, and 18/24m.
The t-shirts are Hanes Toddler T's, 100% cotton, in 2T, 3T, and 4T.
Printed with a two-color silkscreen process, each onesie or shirt will be $20, plus $2 shipping. Right now, there is no set international ordering or shipping option, but if there is interest, I'm happy to add it.
UPDATE: US OR INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: you know, I didn't design this project to make any money, just to cover the cost of printing a few shirts. If there are more than five shirts printed, the unit cost will drop a couple of bucks, and I'll just use that money to cover international shipping. So you can order from anywhere now.
The Kickstarter goal is only $100, or five Onesies, and I am confident it will be met. But I kept the deadline at 30 days to see how this whole idea plays out.
After the deadline, it'll take about two weeks to print the shirts, then a week or so to ship, 7-8 weeks start-to-finish. Which means shirts should arrive around October 16. Please plan any gifting and sizing accordingly; you know how quickly kids can outgrow stuff.
UPDATE: ORDER BY SIZE I have set up separate pledge buttons for each item/size option. Please only select pledge options that include size information. [Early backers, I'll make sure to contact you about your size preferences.]
Thanks and spread the word!
