HYA goods in the wild! (and other fascinating stuff)

One of the things that I really get a kick out of is seeing people happy with the stuff from the HYA store that they have received, so I thought I’d show off the two latest images sent my way from happy customers. The headless lady at the top of this post is my buddy Meghan that was an intern at the same company as me when I was in Philly. See that thumbs up? It means she likes it! There are still a few ladies HYA tees available in various sizes, whereas the fellas only have the option of large left, and even then in very low numbers. I wish I could have another print run of them done but I just don’t think that there is the demand. Hopefully I’ll be able to share pictures of the new HYA shirt soon!

The lower photo is of one of the logo poster prints that I launched about a month ago. The photo comes in from Mercedes, or as you may know her, Yema Yema. It’s cool because it’s the first time I’ve seen one of them actually framed and on a wall (my set is framed, but the cheap frames I got off eBay aren’t suitable for hanging, always check eBay descriptions!). If you’re wondering, the other print comes from Sock Monkee and appears to only be available in this bundle.

I think I’m going to make this my last post until Tuesday (Britain is on holiday for the long Easter weekend, so why shouldn’t I be?). Here’s a few bits for me to nag you about before you go and enjoy the weekend too:

If you haven’t done it yet, check out ShirtDeck and post your t-shirt coupon codes (all submissions are instantly placed on the site and tweeted by @shirtdeck), it’s going along quite nicely, the database is slowly growing with coupon codes for all your favourite shops and probably some you’ve never heard of too.

Join more than 2,500 other and follow me on Twitter, this weekend I mostly expect to be complaining about traffic on Britain’s roads, how awesome my homemade ginger beer is, and maybe something about t-shirts (on a non-holiday weekend it’s mostly tees though). I’m not exactly a member of #teamfollowback but if your tweets look interesting (and English, I have nothing against foreigners, but there’s not much point me following what I can’t read) then I’ll probably follow you back.

Help inflate my ego by liking Hide Your Arms on Facebook. I post less than once a day pointing out cool HYA posts and other people’s work, so I’m not spamming you, because I hate it when brand’s over-post too.

Hide Your Arms advertising will be switching over to BuySellAds over the next couple of weeks. This will mean nothing to most of you looking at the site, the ad blocks and sizes won’t be changing, but maybe there will be new people filling them as BSA provides a much simpler platform for buying ad space than the current model that was quite time and labour intensive for me as I did it all myself. The upshot as a reader is that the site should be snappier as it will no longer be serving 25,000 ads per day, and that I should have more time to write blog posts because I will be spending less time on the advertising side of things. When it’s all setup and ready I’ll let you know so that clothing companies can check out the rates and maybe take some of the ad space or put their name on the waiting list.

Have a great weekend!
