We need to spruce up the LibraryThing Store a bit—currently, our store gallery features LT staff or our families, and we'd rather those reflect our members instead.

Send us photos of yourself sporting your favorite LibraryThing or TinyCat t-shirt, and we'll put you in our gallery (highlights will grace our main store page!). Please send your photos to me at loranne@librarything.com, or upload them to your member gallery and point me to them.

Win a free shirt!

If you don't have a LibraryThing or TinyCat shirt, or want a new one, we're also running a drawing for 40 free t-shirts (winners' choice of design). To enter, fill out this form any time between now and Wednesday, Aug 8th at 5pm EDT.

Full details on the blog: http://blog.librarything.com/main/2018/07/lt-models-needed/

What sizes are available? That's an important detail you should have posted.

>2 Klea: I also recommend looking at the size charts for each item—some of our shirts are different brands, and run much smaller than others. We'll also be sure to let you know if we run out of a particular size/color, and will put larger notices up on each Store page. Hope this helps!

Update 07/31: We've had a lot of entries to our drawing already, which is great! Consequently, we're upping the number of shirts we're giving away to 20 instead of 10. It'll be great to have so many folks wearing their LT love on their sleeves.

I’m still waiting for a stamp shirt with a round neck.

Some have asked us about 3x. We do not, unfortunately, carry any 3x+ shirts. That is a shame, and we'll look into it on our next reorder.

>9 timspalding: Absolutely, I will get 3x wherever we can get them, on our next order. I'll look as soon as I can.

I think, however, we need to insist that the logo scale. At present the logo is always the same size, I think, and it starts to look wrong as the shirts get larger. This will, presumably, up the cost. Perhaps we can scale at 2x.

I have just entered the drawing. I'm from Italy, I don't know if this is open to members outside the US, I hope so! Thank you!

>8 kristilabrie: I meant the small stamp :)

>11 timspalding: Yeah, any different sized logo/ink color change increases the cost. But, I can surely look into it and see if it's something simple they can do for us (they'll need to send us proofs for each different print).

>13 JerryMmm: Yes, sorry for the confusion, Loranne clarified with me! I've added your request to my list. I'll take a deeper look at our Store in the next month or so. There's some items we'll need to discontinue (certain styles/colors have been discontinued) and some we may want to add...

I can see the idea of adding 3x to the sortiment. But you could consider outsourcing some of the other stuff. I frequently buy stuff from Topatoco. Even bookish stuff like:
https://topatoco.com/collections/jeph-jacques/products/qc-semleg or https://topatoco.com/collections/jeph-jacques/products/qc-blinded or just a simple teh-shirt:
https://topatoco.com/collections/jeph-jacques/products/qc-teh

I prefer 100% cotton t-shirts if possible, so sometimes I buy one T-shirt and throw it away and get the pattern printed on a t-shirt I can wear. Making that legal / feasible / easy would be nice. (Your T-shirts are 100% cotton, so I don't have a problem with those, but maybe sometimes it would be nice to have a few more themes to choose from). Shipping is expensive anyway, so paying a bit more to get a much better t-shirt would be okay.

Would it be too much of a hassle to add the stamp logo to the CafePress store? Then people could get whatever they wanted.

I can't imagine it would be technically, just need to have conceptdawg the time to do it I'll add it to my list of things to look over.

ETA: as with all things, time is the limiting factor here. I'll see what I can do.

We've had an awesome number of responses so far. Thanks to everyone who's sent in pictures already—keep 'em coming!

Update: Given that we've had such a great response, we're both upping the number of shirts we're giving away to 40 t-shirts (stock permitting), AND we're extending the deadline until Wednesday, Aug. 8th, 5pm EDT.

I am not a T-shirt wearer, however, I would spend money on a green dress/nightshirt/blouse/boxer shorts which had the small LT stamp print all over it, like polka-dots.

It's been awhile since I browsed in the store, I'll head over there now.
