Putting Shirts on the Back of Haitians / Vista Print T-Shirts Contest
Jets Championship T Shirts
Where do all those pre-printed championship t-shirts go when a team loses? When the Jets lost recently, it seemed that the massive amounts of “We are the Champions” (at least until we lost_ t-shirts would be sold in discount, scratch and dent stores across the world but news reports indicate that they may be headed to Africa and Haiti. In addition to that, caps, mugs and other wares that must be discarded of may be off on a trip to help the earthquake torn Haiti and help put shirts on the back of the people who need it the most.
Vista Print Giveaway
Vista Print reported amazing fourth quarter earnings at the end of 2009, in part because of their focus to give back to both consumers and maintain their competitive edge against other t-shirt companies like CafePress. Mid-January, Vista Print announced that they would offer a customer appreciation give away that would include high end technological gifts and free offers. The sweepstakes is being monitored by partner Overdrive Interactive and is open to any Vista Print customers. To enter, customers large and small just need to log onto www.vistaprintgiveaway.com.

PSystar is a company that took some downloadable software called Rebel EFI and began to build Macintosh clones, selling them through it’s website. Apple sued the company and after a year and a half later got an injunction against PSystar so it could no longer build and sell the machines. PSystar also is required to pay Apple $2.7 million in damages according to the settlement.
The company plans to appeal the injunction and is seeking clarity on the availability of the software, Rebel EFI, for download online. In the meantime, PSystar has begun selling t shirts (and asking for donations) to generate revenue or to make fun of the situation, no one is quite sure. The t shirts say ‘I sued PSystar.’ on the front and “…and all I got was a lousy injunction.’ on their back. The company hopes to sell more t shirts than it sold Macintosh clones, 1,000 to date.
