We finally got our shirt design for Tattooed Hippie Pirate Mommas and there has to be a minimum of 25 pre-orders before they're screen printed and shipped to customers. With the man in charge of shirts (my husband) out of town on business for two weeks, he'll place an order when he returns and the shirts will be done within a week. Only four moms have purchased shirts so far but i just opened my etsy store to accept credit cards. I also changed the shop name to tattooedmommas since our entire name was too Long. The store will feature THPM merchandise and possibly more in the future.
One of the San Antonio ladies is relocating to the Omaha area so there will soon be a branch of pirate mommas in the Midwest. Let me hear from you if you're in Iowa or Nebraska!
This week i finally got around to ordering business cards. Only two years behind. Why didn't anyone tell me about vistaprint before!? 250 cards for shipping only? Sweet deal.
Going to start laying out the anticipated 2014-15 THPM calendar now that the final photos have been chosen and my photographer is working on edits. Selling ads is something i struggle with... out of eight or ten people i emailed, zero replied. Two years of 32+ hot moms with tattoos from ages 22 to 40s in all shapes and sizes. Guess it's time to put a team together to hit the streets. It's for two amazing charities and you can't go wrong with spending $50 on a full color ad on the back cover of a pinup calendar. You'd think selling them in your store and doing a signing event would bring in business, but no one has reached out except a loyal vapor shop owner friend and fan and a gun repair and supply store in ARKANSAS of all places. At least they know a good thing when they see it. ;) I'm so proud of this calendar and want to donate as much as possible to Children's Advocacy Center of Denton County and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Oh! I almost forgot : we are going to be in the news. CentralTrack.com in Dallas did a story on us and so did San Antonio Express -News. As soon as the links are up I'll post them here.
