We all love brands and that is evident from not just by wearing Guccies, Omegas also by wearing brand logos on t-shirts, mugs, stickers and various merchandizes. Building brand is not simple and its one way of showing that we love the efforts that the guys have put in building that brand. I always wanted to wear a WordPress hoodie or t-shirt, however it wasn’t making sense to me that I buy a hoodie for 23 GBP from WordPress store, when it shouldn’t cost more than $ 12 in India itself. So, here’s what I did -
I found a good online merchandize printing service that allows custom design – Thanks to Ankit Maheshwari of Instablogs for suggesting Pringoo to me. Then I downloaded the transparent background PNG and ordered it through that online printing service. Now, for $ 12 – I’ll get a WordPress hoodie for myself and that also includes shipping charges.
At WordCamp India, we had a small session where we asked the WordCampers to write down their suggestions and asked them to give it to Matt, who went through the suggestions, unfortunately, I couldn’t give any suggestion as there wasn’t any in my mind at that time (organizing events is just not easy) otherwise, I would have definitely given this suggestion that Matt and company should open WordPress store for India at lower rates or that they should partner with various printing stores for WordPress merchandize.
