Motivation and Secrets

There has been some unrest expressed to me about designs being missed, and this was to be expected. Many have not even come across Tiny Run yet, and once our stockpile of past designs grows to what I expect to be a swirling vortex of shirt goodness, this chagrin at the inability to order at will from that mass may be expected to increase. People are just not used to this way of doing things.

This alone would be reason for me to do just about anything, but here, other motivations pull further rank.

But I want to help. To assist people in their acclimation to Tiny Run’s modus, I have made available an email list. I understand that this posses some issue for people that already feel the marketer’s glare on every motion they make. But I tell you, I think you will find my emails both timely and brief, and this is the best way to ensure you miss nothing further, that nothing escapes from your glare.

SECRET: I’ll make today a super-secret day too. If you sign up for emails today, the confirmation page you arrive at after you follow the link in the email you receive will contain shopping cart buttons to purchase Dave Reed’s design for $1 off! Hot Dog!

10 reasons I love Tiny Run

Sporting an older Hilesh design

ONE) It’s fun

Is that weird? Since go I have been having a blast. It’s challenging, I feel I’m finally pushing things to the edges, and it was hard to only have ten things on this list. Bonus: It often captures that roller coaster feel. Already there have been a few of the first scary big hills of a ride followed by the endorphin rush and the speedy little hills that follow. I only expect it to continue.

I talked to Priscilla today

And it was lovely. I have a hereditary weakness for southern accents and her’s was a delight added to my usual Wednesday morning. Priscilla is from Kopilot, located in Louisville hence the accent. I had chosen them to handle the screen printed designs for the immediate future, depending on the requirements of the design itself and the final result of the first design run. And so we talked about the order I placed of Hilesh’s true star design, and worked out some details.

She said also, that she hoped that I was happy with Kopilot, liked the quality of their product and would want to work with them again. And she sounded actually enthused about it. I adore talking to people who like their job. I quickly and just as enthusiastically said, “I hope I like it too!”

We’ll see what happens in about twelve days when they arrive at my door. I am so looking forward to it.
