I wanna hear from everyone. Please chime in. Please fill in all the fields ...

1) What was your favorite design/ Tee from this year and why? The grey woman's tank top. I liked the simple design and color. It's my favorite workout shirt. Or the headphones T. I liked the fact that there was color other than red, white and black, and it was completely different from all other SP shirts.

2) What was your least favorite design/tee from this year and why? The gunfight T. Just not my style...but I'm a chick so...

3) Thoughts on the Grey Connect Hoodie? Did you like that it wasn't black? One of my all time favorite pieces of SP merch. I LOVE that it wasn't black. I'm sick of black band merch!

4) Did you like the fact that the band was finally on a tee (Euro tour tee and the final Tour tee?) No. I don't do shirts with pictures of bands on them. A silhouette of some sort might be cool, though.

5) What merch item would you like to see in the future? No clue.

6) Jagger? or water? Water. Jagger is just gross.

7) Do you think we carry too many items / designs on tour? No.

8)What merch item from their entire past do you wish they would bring back and why? My memory doesn't work that well. I did like the original hoodie with Sick Puppies on the sleeve. Or did I make that one up in my head?

Honestly, the only merch I was really exposed to was on the website since about August or so and I was vastly unimpressed with what was available. I didn't see hoodies or more plus sized t-shirts. My experience is that merch t-shirts run small and I wasn't willing to risk the money on clothing. I bought a few music things I didn't have but I didn't buy any clothes.

My one and only show was back in February or March and I didn't start exploring merch until later in the year, so ...

I can only hope that the online store is better in 2015. I'm happy to drop a ton of money on merch if I can get my hands on it, but nothing in the clothing option was worth my time. At least online.

1) What was your favorite design/ Tee from this year and why? Probably the shirt with the picture of the band on it, because I like shirts with pictures.

2) What was your least favorite design/tee from this year and why? Don't really have one, I liked all the new merch!

3) Thoughts on the Grey Connect Hoodie? Did you like that it wasn't black? I absolutely LOVED it and am devastated that I no longer have it. :(

4) Did you like the fact that the band was finally on a tee (Euro tour tee and the final Tour tee?) Yes

5) What merch item would you like to see in the future? Shirts in more colors, and shorts, like work-out type shorts.

6) Jagger? or water? Water

7) Do you think we carry too many items / designs on tour? There is no such thing as too many items/designs. :D

8)What merch item from their entire past do you wish they would bring back and why? My favorite piece of merch ever is the old hoodie with Sick Puppies written on the sleeve. I like all the hoodies but I'd like something like that again.

1) What was your favorite design/ Tee from this year and why? Headphones Tee. I like the fact it wasn't just Black.

2) What was your least favorite design/tee from this year and why? The album cover white tee. It just looked weird.

3) Thoughts on the Grey Connect Hoodie? Did you like that it wasn't black? Love it. But the text could of been a bit darker.

4) Did you like the fact that the band was finally on a tee (Euro tour tee and the final Tour tee?) I'm non partial really. So sure!

Not sure if you have it already but what about signed drumhead that would be just one for every show with some specific theme?

Problem with that idea is that Mark irregularly changes the heads on his drums .... sometimes he can go a long time ... other times not so much. So we never know when we will have one available. Or when we will have time to change it prior to sound check (You can't sound check, adjust the sound levels then change out a head cause that messes up the guys during a show ... make sense ... so they have to change heads before soundcheck and sometimes there isn't time to do that.)

Rest assured when we do have them they have been on one of the drums for at least a day or two maybe more if its really banged up.

When we do have them they are signed and brought over to the merch booth ... Sometimes they sell right away, sometimes they sit there for days ... You just have to check the merch booth as soon as doors open if you're interested in something like that.

Or ask me ... sometimes the house won't let me sell them. Or i forgot one in the trailer.

Sometimes they change one. Or two or three of the heads. So that's why you sometimes see a few out ... and then nothing other days.

With one slight exception, I'd have to say the Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock tour shirt. So nice to see Mark and Emma on a shirt finally. But...who's the other guy?

Huh?

4) Did you like the fact that the band was finally on a tee (Euro tour tee and the final Tour tee?)
YES!!!!! Just wish the other guy wasn't there. Seriously, who IS that?! It's creepy. :P

Seriously i think you got a misprint ...

.5. A button down shirt with a logo or crest in the left or right boob area :biggrin: and a pocket on the opposite side. A little thicker material.

... you mean like a worker shirt?

That's an idea we never got around to (sort of ) ... maybe one day.

By August we weren't printing any new stuff so what you were looking at was probably the bottom of the barrel.

By plus sizes are we talking 2X? 3X or bigger? We typically run a few dozen of the Bigger sizes at the start of the print run of a new tee - so that's when you want to order the bigger sizes.

See ya next year.

We did have girlie larges in that ... but that shirt was way way way small especially the American Version of that tee.

They did have a little bit of pink in them ...

I get that and that sucks Yo! Because It's awesome. It's not all black and dark and such. I'm a vibrant person, I like bright colors! I NEED BRIGHT COLORS G!

-G- wrote:5) What merch item would you like to see in the future?

I'd also have to add the imprinted bracelets. They last way longer! (just thought of it because i put one on that i've had longer then my sp ones and it still has all the color fill.)
