adBrite is turned back on but in a more restrictive mode (family friendly) that should avoid those spammy ads we got before. Please let me know if you see anything amiss.

Can't you guys source advertisers with that Project Wonderful thing for Final Gear as well?
The bigger the ad network the better due to selection, rates, etc. Project Wonderful is tiny and unlikely to pay well.

Damnit.

I'm not seeing them though -- can you right-click the ad and select copy URL? I want to be able to block them by URL.
Will do, i reloaded the page and they had dissapeared though so it might have been a one-time fluke. But if the appear again i'll post the URL here.

or Pick a Country, then put /finalgear after the domain. The "storefront" is pretty basic at the moment, as I have not had the time to properly set it up.

Please keep in mind that we have NOT verified how well the designs print, so Your Mileage May Vary. And if someone does want to test it, please post a couple photos and let us know how they turn out. If they turn out pretty well, I will put the rest of our back catalog up for ordering(Yes, every FG shirt design we've sold).

To see the "Some Say" design, you need to have a registered account and have your filters set to PG-13+ due to it having mild language.
Personally I wouldnt use Zazzle, they're really picky about copyright even when there's hardly any infringement, I've had good reach on redbubble, nice and easy to manage store and a good variety of colours and options, but simple enough for adding shirts and info

What about the ad service you use on PhyreFile? They have decent non-spammy ads.

Getting the fake email/message ad at the moment on the front. To supply with the address to block, do I need to click on it.

Cheers

I think you can just hover over it or right-click -> copy URL.

Ordered the 'I was the stig' one on a long-sleeved top. Printing looks good - is clear with no defects. Material quality also good. I'll wear it to death over the next few days/weekend, wash it and then let you know how it holds up. I'll post some pics at some point as well. Only downside was delivery time - ordered it 30th August and only just arrived today. Spectre's London riots tee arrived quicker than that from the States! Of course, I've no idea if this is normal for zazzle or just a blip in our postal service.

EDIT - pics!

One thing - there's no FG logo on the back (didn't notice when I ordered it that it wasn't displayed). I assume this'll be sorted if you do decide to do the whole back catalogue?

Double-sided printing adds more cost to the shirt which we have to pass on to you all. We decided to fiddle with the shirts to get the logo on the front (or totally removed) to save you all money instead.

Ah, fair enough. I, personally, would prefer the logo somewhere - and the first thing a friend said when I said I'd got one was 'does it have the logo on the back'.

They should come with tick/checkmark badges that you can stick in the appropriate box :D
I've got a tick badge attached to another top somewhere, just can't find it at the moment, that I plan to use with this tee :D

Just donated a little something. Hope it helps. In hindsight, I probably should have ordered a few shirts, though. I'll do that next paycheck. :p

I killed off ads. Making a small fraction of what AdSense was so it's not worth it for all the hassle. I'd rather just cover it out of my own pocket and via donations than put up with shitty ads.
