Folded and Put Away.

It's Memorial Day: the unofficial start of summer. Put another way, the start of T-shirt season. We've been working on a number of apparel ideas here at 196 Glen and we like giving our clients options, when it comes to wearable messaging.

Alas, not all of the options presented are produced. Below, you can see some of the best work that never left the shop. With a little coercing, we might print them and sell them online ourselves. Is there a market?

Design for a local brew pub that cures what ails you.

While the real "A-List" tee was a hit on the trade-show floor, this was designed as a givaway for, let's say, unqualified leads AKA: uninterested parties.

Concept courtesy of Ben Bramlage, everyone liked this design immediately. Except the um, the client. Yeah. Bummer dude.

The ladies at SaraBear Baskets blanched at the thought of wearing a quote from The Silence of the Lambs on their chests.

The Rosa's will take Woodstock and all the other dachshunds in town for a walk sometime this fall, but until then the shirt goes un-produced. Additional rejected headline: Check out my weiner.

The lobster got baked as a mascot/logo for the Sagamore's Pavilion restaurant, but we thought it made for a fun shirt.

This series of shirts for kids never made it to the shelves at the library.

And the most popular un-produced Trampoline T-shirt by far, with ringing endorsements from ski-bums, college buddies, high school pals and spouses alike is:

Kitchy-cool Alta takes a swipe at the lower-altitude sellouts in Colorado. YES!

Want one? Give us a reason to have these printed. Please.
