New Design! The Hand (Right or Left)

The Right Hand Mousepad


The Left Hand Baby Tee



The Hand design. You can choose the Right or the Left. Maybe it's for when you're busy or lazy and you want to say, "Hi!" Or it's you letting some know to keep your personal space boundaries. Or maybe you just want to let people know which hand you use more often. You've got the upper hand when you have this design on one of these products!

Yeah, it's my hand. But it can be yours as well!




Look for a personalized gift at Zazzle.

Other Cool Zazzle Stores: Sports Spectacular



I definitely liked this hi-top sneaker from the Sports Spectaculars Zazzle Store. Lot's of sports related items with unique designs. When your not at my store, give this one a visit. Or check out their sister store, Sports and More.

The Artwise Shirts and Stuff Daily

Get your news!

Through paper.li and Twitter (actually, the @DougEShirts Twitter Feed) comes The Artwise Shirts and Stuff Daily. It's my Twitter feed of visual artists and t-shirt designers and Zazzle store owners and related connections. The paper.li service takes your Twitter feeds (or soon: Facebook!) or groups or even a search and publishes them in a daily or weekly newspaper format. Then, you can share it with your group on Twitter, Facebook or your blog. People can also subscribe to it. It's pretty cool and, I must say, it's refreshing to view the tweets in this manner.

Books I'm Reading: Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0: 1,001 Unconventional Tips, Tricks and Tactics for Landing Your Dream Job



I've started to read Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0: 1,001 Unconventional Tips, Tricks and Tactics for Landing Your Dream Job by Jay Conrad Levinson and David E. Perry. The image in the post has an affiliate link. I'm one of the millions who is looking for full-time employment that is worthwhile and meaningful both career-wise and financially. I'm betting that Guerrilla Marketing may have some insights I can apply to marketing my Zazzle store, Doug E. Shirts.

The beginning of the book states what everyone kind of knows already - things have changed! The workplace and the path to getting a job has never been more difficult. The difference so far is that Jay/David (I don't know who's voice is writing though I think it's Jay) tell us what what industries are soon to be history and the one's that are growing. I do think that the American public has yet to come to grips that some of the lost jobs are never coming back (at least to this country). We've inadvertently priced ourselves out of the game and big business (who despite recent rulings, is not human or tied to a location) has looked elsewhere to find cheap labor. The other thing they do to to dump payroll is to fire old, hire young and dump the job duties on those who remain.

The writing seems to be crisp and interesting. I'll update you as I read more!

Other Cool Zazzle Stores: Simo's World (Autism)



Arthur and his mom run this Zazzle Store out of Florida. The designs Arthur uses are cool and whimsical. It makes me smile.

What you wouldn't get by looking just at the artwork is that Arthur is a teenager who is autistic. The store is dedicated to Arthur to promote his art. Please take a moment or two and visit Simo's World!

Other Cool Zazzle Stores: saytoons

saytoons's Store at Zazzle

Saytoons hails from Chicago, Illinois and is not only a great Zazzle store owner, but a professional illustrator and cartoonist. As a kid, he met the legendary Grass Green (cartoonist/comic book artist) and he was sold on being a cartoonist. You can see his skills reflected in his artistic products. I like everything in his store; I particularly like his skateboards.

Check out his store and tell him I sent you!
