Income ideas: A more creative approach to t-shirts and mugs

Visits yesterday to the Connecticut Historical Society and the Mark Twain House, both in Hartford, reminded me of creative ways to approach t-shirts and mugs, something every organization should be offering in their gift shops.

Often t-shirts and mugs have little more than the organization's name and logo on them, but you can also offer alternatives, and these two  are good examples.  Granted, few organizations have close ties to one of America's great wits or glamorous movie stars, but every institution can come up with their own creative approach to target buyers who may not be interested in simply promoting your institution on their shirt or coffee cup.  

Details: The t-shirt was $14.95 and the mug was $10.  They both include the name of the institution.  It's on the sleeve of the t-shirt and it's below the quote on the mug.


"If a man could be crossed with a cat it would improve the man, but deteriate the cat." -- Mark Twain"If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun."
