Boy leaves to go to Comic Con; Girl stays to make messes

14 Jul

I got all of my screen printing equipment today and most of my shirts yesterday!

Now it is all over my “dining room”

THINGS JUST GOT REAL! I have a little over a week to get sooo many things done:

1. Make Merchandise (kind of important)

2. phone number

3. business cards

4. website

5. clothing tags

I can’t do any of this until I decide on a name. I actually already registered a domain for one of the two names I was thinking of using but now that I have a logo and some designs I am questioning if this is the right name.

The two names are: “Seams” and “Scarlette” or variation on the second “Scarlette Michelle”

Now would probably be the time to explain what kind of business I plan on having. I want to do a clothing line that starts with screen printed art print shirts featuring mine and hopefully soon, local artists artwork. Eventually (when money allows expansion) I would like to add in dresses, skirts, pants and accessories for home and person that are trendy yet classic enough you can wear them over and over again with a focus on quality materials/ construction.

I’m struggling with the name because “Seams” feels like a small arty brand, not super specific but also clearly clothing/sewing related. I also like the punny tag line “Life isn’t as it seams” while “Scarlette” or “Scarlette Michelle” is more encompassing of other items not specifically sewing/clothing related, its also my name, and I don’t feel like it has a predisposed feeling, I can make the brand feel however I want.

 

I need to make a decision right now. Like by tomorrow so I can work on all of those things on my list above. This whole questioning started after I made my logo:

Its me…but not because it could be anyone

 

Then some of my art work:

Vintage Gal

3D Jammer

 

These are the designs I made specifically for Roller Derby/RollerCon I do have other designs that aren’t done/roller derby related but this is a start. I am hoping these plus the others I am taking to RollerCon do well enough to put more money into this to make more things!! Yay for making stuff!!

 

*sigh* what to do, what to do. I guess I will dwell on it some more, ask more people and just print stuff in the meantime.

 

XOXO
