Translator gear at CafePress July 8, 2009

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff, Marketing ideas.

100_0721CafePress has lots of fun translation-related gear available. CafePress is an online site for all kinds of customizable gear. You can buy it, design it, or sell it on CafePress. You can get all kinds of fun stuff, including t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, mousepads, messenger bags, tote bags, mugs, bumper stickers and more! I don’t know who to thank, but there are now a lot of translation and language-related items available. This could be a fun way to start conversations and possibly gain some new clients. I treated myself to a t-shirt, a hoodie and a messenger bag a few days ago, and the package arrived this afternoon. I will be styling all my purchases at the ATA conference in New York City in October as well as around Cleveland in the next few months. Be sure to check it out!

Here is one of my tweets from a couple of days ago referencing a very strange translator-related CafePress item. Will that be part of your NY gear? :: Found this http://snurl.com/lo554 thanks to @sarahdillon and @localization. Disturbing.

Hi Michael, yes, that one is odd. Several of them are quite odd. I chose some that made sense to me. In addition to the items in the photo I ordered a pink hoodie that says “Can we get a translator? I don’t speak moron.”

Hi Jill,

Like that!!

The way I see that is as an honest statement. Good for you! Trouble is, if I carried a handbag (‘purse’ in the U.S. of A.) on the few occasions I get out of the house, they would think that I’m gay. Nothing against gay, of course. Having said that though, I fear that this: http://i221.photobucket.com/albums/dd76/Textklick/lovers.jpg would also also not work for me. I should find the time?

What to do?

Yours in desperation,
Chris 😉

Hi Chris,

That isn’t a purse. It’s a messenger bag. Guys carry messenger bags – it’s kind of like a satchel. I plan to schlepp my laptop in it.

Oh – right. Even better!

Cool. It’s what they’d call a “Schlepptop-Tasche” in Germany. 🙂
