I just started a store at cafepress, what do you guys think? I know it's lazy, but I thought it might be able to wrangle some funds for my handmade ventures...

hi.

I think that the link you've posted is only to a private preview page for you as the store owner. We can't see it.  I think you may need to 'publish' your page in order to make your store public.  Then you can post the site's public URL.

Thanks, HardLuckGal!
I am not a vegetarian either! This design started out as a gift for a vegetarian friend and everyone loved it & thought I should sell it. I thought about doing a variation of "I eat meat" and take the slash off of the steak, but I  don't want to be offensive because of the original vegetarian intent. What do you think?

i think if it were pro-meat i'd probably buy it.  meat apparently is very chic right now!  check this out: http://www.mcphee.com/cgi-bin/mcphee/archie-search.cgi

Bleck! Im a vegetarian and dont think you should make pro-meat stuff! Maybe Im being biased, but a 6+ year lifestyle can do that to a girl.

pro meat stuff is very in right now. it also appeals to a differnt sort. i.e. my dad.....  he would love something like that. He is what you would call a manly man who eats meat, hunts and watches football.

If you go onto image description there is a "view larger image" link under the picture of the product. There it shows you a good close-up of the designs.

well, a pro-meat shirt would make sense if you think that people specifically shouldn't be vegetarian because you think killing and eating animals totally rules.  but if you just eat meat because you think it tastes good and you aren't particularly concerned about animals rights or something, like 99% of meat eaters i'd venture to guess, then a pro-meat shirt doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

i am vegetarian because i think the world would be a better place* if more people ate a meatless diet.  if you think the would would be a better place if everyone ate meat, whatever, go to it.

*i won't go into all the of specifics, this boils it down

i know you can like animals and still eat meat, i just don't understand why you would wear a pro-meat shirt if you're for animals rights.  my point was that if you wanted to wear a pro-meat shirt you'd pretty much have to be ANTI animals all together, and think that people who were vegetarians were hurting the world or society or something (because a pro-meat shirt would be specifically anti-vegetarian; if not literally, it would at least carry that connotation)

veggies, don't hate me.

I 'm not a huge meat eater but I used to have this black shirt that said PETA in really big yellow letters and underneath that it said "People for the Eating of Tasty Animals". I wore it just for the odd looks.

while i think that Letsread is justified in her opinion, i highly doubt you're going to convert any of us meat eaters into vegitarians thru this thread.  pretty much what's gonna happen is this is gonna turn into a big ethical debate, when really the original poster only wanted opinions on her site and product.  if you're a vegetarian and think that the products are perfect as they are, that's awesome, buy one.  just my opinion.

i'm not trying to convert anyone to vegetarianism (did i ever say that?), it just makes me sad when people wear pro-meat-eating shirts.  meat-eaters are the majority in this society, and wearing a shirt that makes sure that people know you're a member of the majority seems pretty redundant and silly.  it's like "straight pride" shirts, only less offensive because vegetarians aren't actually disciminated against like homosexuals are, but you get my point.  why do you need to make a point that you're a member of a group that includes 90% of the population?

i'm not trying to convert the whole board to vegetarianism (but i mean, it's not like that would make be sad), i'm just saying that if i saw someone wearing that i'd think they thought my choice of diet was somehow bad for me or for society, and i doubt that most people here think that vegetarians are wrong for not eating meat, a lot of you just wouldn't make that choice for yourself.

i was just pointing out the messages that many people would see behind a pro-meat shirt besides the most benign message "i am an omnivore."

Most of my friends are Vegetarians or worse Vegan. A few of the vegan have moved back to just vegetarians because they were getting sick. It is hard to maintain I hear. I need all the I eat meat help i can get! Do you know what it is like trying to find a restaurant that makes us all happy? They rib me all the time.
And anyway, sometimes it just plain sucks being part of the majority because it isn't PC to have a tshirt or a button or a right to just say you are who you are!

she asked if it would be offensive if she made pro-meat shirts to go along with the no-meat ones, and i said yeah, kind of.

but the more i think about it, i'm wavering.

i think it's kind of annoying when people find out i'm a vegetarian and they look at my confused and go "huh, why?"  not because i don't really want to tell them, but because i think that everyone should have to answer that question.  i think everyone's diet is a choice, whether you choose to eat meat or dairy, etc. or not.  if you've chosen to eat meat, maybe you should talk about it, and wearing a pro-meat shirt would invite people to talk about how all diets have an effect on both the consumer and the world, and everyone chooses their own diet for a specific reason.

so, i changed my mind.  make it, and then invite people who have chosen all different kinds of eating lifestyles to talk about why they choose to eat meat or why they choose not to, because vegetarians or vegans aren't the only people who think about what they eat and why.

I agree. i think you should make the shirts....to an extent, i could care less what other people wear, even though i may find it offensive (the exception would be the "one way" shirts that refer to straight being the only way....but neways Smiley) by all means create vegan/vegetrian/meatlovers shirts (wouldnt it be cool if you could do something everyone could agree on? like "we all care about it...just the reasoning differs"). sparking convo is always a good thing, not necessarily to change minds, but to enlighten.

Since I'm "nuetral" to vegetarianism, I think I'll change my store. I'm going to add more designs (not vegetarian) and change the name of the store. Thanks for all your input and I'll keep you posted. Any ideas on how to get more traffic to a cafepress store, without having to pay for it?
