Sneak Peek

With the website completely up-to-date, I finally had some time to do my favorite part of the job, design new t-shirts. Next week, we'll roll out around 15 brand spanking new designs for our cool baby clothes & hip toddler t-shirts. Here's a sneak peek at a few of our new designs.

We hope you love them as much as we do.

Stewart & Colbert Rally Shirts for the Whole Family

Are you heading to either Stephen Colbert’s “March to Keep Fear Alive” or Jon Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” scheduled for October 30th in DC? If so, get your gear before you go.

Sandbox Threads
has both Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart t-shirts for the whole family. Jon Stewart Baby Onesies, Kid T-Shirts with Jon Stewart, & Adult Jon Stewart Tees.

And if you would prefer a Stephen Colbert Onesie, or Colbert Kids Shirt or a Stephen Colbert t-shirt just for you, we can do that too.

From everything I've read, these rallies will far surpass the attendance of the Beck rally. I really hope so. They seem way more fun and not nearly as hateful.

Sandbox Threads on Gossip Girl

A few months ago, the costume department at the hit television show Gossip Girl ordered several cool baby onesies from Sandbox Threads. We don't yet know if the Gossip Girl onesies are part of the final show or if they hit the cutting room floor. Fingers crossed that we made the show.

If we did make the final cut and you watch Gossip Girl, the onesies pictured in this post are the designs to keep an eye out for while watching (the colors and styles may be a bit different, but the designs the same).

I've never watched the show, but this season, I'll be watching.

A WAY BACK Look at Sandbox Threads

The snapshot above is of the Sandbox Threads website taken just a few days after we opened. If you'd like to browse around the original Sandbox Threads' website, enjoy. Many of the links are broken and images long gone, but you might enjoy seeing the humble beginnings from which we originate.

Two things strike me when I look at our original site and our first attempt to sell cool baby shirts. First, why on earth would anyone in there right mind buy from us with a website that looks so, well, generic and homemade? Thank you for your trust. We've come a long way and without those first customers we wouldn't be where we are today.

Second, the vast majority of the designs that we offered back then are still our best sellers today. I guess I really was onto something way back them because my original ideas still seem to be my best ideas.

Looking at the site then and the site now really brings a smile to my face. The changes have been a labor of love (and many times utter hate), but I'm really proud of how far we've come.

Back to School Flashback

I loved back to school shopping when I was a kid. I mean LOVED! I remember picking out my new notebook and hoping my mom would spring for a Trapper Keeper. Getting everything I needed to load the notebook up. New pencils. New ruler. New everything. Mind you, getting the notebook ready had nothing to do with "school," but everything to do with maintaining the status quo.

I even loved going to get my new school clothes. Shopping has never been my thing, but during that week in early August, I loved it. My mom loved it, too, which wasn't a problem until around 1986 when I was trying to "assert my independence." I mean, I wanted to ditch her and pick out clothes by myself, but she was paying and I was still her little boy and she wanted a say. This battle, while torturous at the time, makes me smile at how weird teenage boys become toward their moms. Sorry mom.

My point? Moms(and dads): buy the stuff you like now (hopefully a few Sandbox Threads' shirts) and dress your kiddos in them while you can because in a few short years the battle between parent and teenager will ensue.

A Close Up Look at Sandbox Threads

I'm still a few days away from starting "The Great Shirt Mock-Up" (see below), so in the meantime, I'm still taking pictures of shirts, and I discovered a neat benefit of taking pictures for one more day, some new views of Sandbox Threads.

When I put the camera down, I could see the above view through the screen. I liked it and took a picture. I then proceeded to take other "close-up" shots of some views around Sandbox Threads.

Yeah, I know, but this is what I do.

One of These Things Is Not Like the Other

I am finally giving in, and I'm pretty excited about it. Since I started Sandbox Threads, I have tried to take individual pictures of the shirts we make and then manually upload them to our website. Doing it the "old way" adds extra work and I often find myself behind a big stack of pictures that never make it to the site.

An alternative to taking actual photos is to use shirt mock-ups. Most sites you visit already do this (and I bet most of you didn't even know). I have used mock-ups of our shirts before, but I just didn't want to give in and stop taking pictures of our shirt. I didn't (until now).

Side by side the mock-up looks better than the photo, and the mock-up is still a true representation of our shirts. So, I'm making the change that will not only save me a bunch of work, but make the Sandbox Threads website look better.

I hope you agree that our cool toddler shirts and baby onesies really do look better.

And in case you couldn't tell, the above picture is the mock-up while the picture below is an actual photo.

Update on Elijah

Last year, we were approached about doing a fundraiser for a little boy who was, at the time, very sick. We jumped at the chance. And many of you also jumped at the chance to help.

It had been a while since I had checked Elijah's Guestbook to see how he was doing. I was reminded yesterday to check on Elijah after I read an article on one of my favorite former football players, Al Wilson, and his son who seems to be battling a similar disease.

After visiting Elijah's page, I'm happy to report that Elijah seems to be doing much better and has turned an important corner. You can read more here at Elijah's Guestbook. Cancer sucks any way you slice it, but Hope remains greater than Fear.
