Got a little brain wave and thought I would share it with you all.

I own a silver RAV4 the one with a tyre on the back door which has a cover. Recently I had a sign made up with the words elvispresleynews.com and stuck it across the middle of the tyre hood... only two days later and my taffic has doubled.

If I knew how to post a picture here I would ... but alas, have no idea...

Just put a picture up on your site and link to it.

You must do a lot of driving to have that much of an impact--are you sure it's not just a coincidence?

HD... I have been thinking of having t-shirts made up by an affiliate program for my visitors to buy... however, as I am not great at designing online so I gave up the idea... unless some one here can help and offer me a good affiliate program that makes up t-shirts... as I do own the copyrights to several Elvis images that I could use... and have a great tag line...wait for it...

"If you have not visited elvispresleynews.com then you are not a serious Elvis fan"

All offers help me would be welcome, thanks,

You cannot put 15 words on a single T-shirt, 2 or 3 words total for front and back:

e.g.

ElvisPresleyNews.com on the front
and Rocks! on the back with an Elvis or guitar silhouette

thank you, thank you very much
you can now send my my XXL in black.

Take it further--Paint your URL across the front of your house. Then arrange for friends to send in tips to the local TV news programs about this wild house that has a URL across it. So then you get local TV coverage, and if you're lucky, someone will pick it up nationally, and then it could get out on the web....

And a writ from the local council to take it down!

To actually make and deliver T-shirts in Europe and elsewhere I have used eshirt.it in the past.

Alas, I live in a block of flats thus the body corporate members would be up in arms... as they hate me already since I stir them up with my democratic rules and regulations... although I own my flat I could put in a suggestion to rename the block elvispresleynews.com instead of Avondale Heights...

Thanks for the laugh... I love you guys... made my day... just needed a chuckle after a hard week with tradesmen

Hire a college kid to streak across the pitch at a local football/rugby/cricket match while carrying a placard with your URL.....

There are so many possibilities!

"Hire a college kid to streak ... with your URL"

Might work - But in the UK, it would only work with a very short URL at this time of year.

Hmm, well if you had it made and delivered in the EU by eshirt.it then I *guess* about USD40 or a bit less.

For delivery in the US from a US mfr I guess somewhat less. Someone like [www.cafepress.com] looks as if from them it might be not much over USD20.

Our shop t-shirts we have printed front & back, 5 colors, with printing also on the sleeve of the long sleeve shirts. A very good grade of t-shirts, not the ones that are worthless after the first washing(be carefull).

We sell the short sleeve shirts for $20.00 delivered in the US, $5.00 more for almost worldwide. Add $5.00 more for the long sleeve versions.($25.00 to $30.00 shipping included)

Yes... Elvis t-shirts would do well with the right image... however, I don't want to go through the trouble of making them in Australia... rather get a deal where I can create a t-shirt and just post the details on my site and get a commission and make a bucket load...smiling bouncing smiley

Give eshirt.it a whirl at least for EU customers. That was exactly what they were offering when I last looked.

You could do that for cafepress for your US visitors--upload the images, choose the types of shirts, and then you get a commission on each one sold.
