So we all want to help out UG, do what we can to help our hardworking comrades in Kaliningrad finance the site, and all that stuff, right? What better way to do this than by being able to purchase some super cool UG merchandise? We get stuff, they get financial support, everyone's happy.

Now, I recall there being some UG merchandise a number of years back, before I was even registered here. I also recall from the pictures that none of it was really that great, some pretty tacky stuff to say the least. Now what if they made some newer, better quality stuff for everyone? I know I've seen a number of people talk about this before, so I figure why not ask for everyone's input on this, and at the very least check to see what kind of interest there would be in that sort of thing, and if there seems to be enough interest in this idea, send the data along to the Admins to see what they think about this sort of thing.

I personally would be interested in UG apparel, for example. If we had some cool t-shirts, we could all wear them whenever we go to large public places. Wouldn't it be exciting to be able to meet up with a random UGer because you noticed their UG t-shirt? I know I think it would be. I'd also be interested in getting a nice UG sticker to slap onto one of my cases. Those are just a couple of ideas, I'm sure the rest of you can think of some other good ideas.

Poll coming...


tl;dr I'm trying to find out if there is any interest in UG merchandise.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I would totally buy some. Solid Snake endorses these potential products.

I would much rather support UG with T-shirts and such instead of backing tracks and ad removal. However, if it happens, I think that shipping should be sorted out (otherwise us UKers will have an extra £15 import tax on something like a t-shirt), and also that users vote on and maybe even design the products, before handing it over to the team or w/e.

I vote for t-shirts, cd's of user content that has been previously done, stickers, dildos, mugs, hoodies, leather whips, picks, and guitar straps.

EDIT: below post - there's not a chance in hell anyone in their right mind would walk down a street with a 4chan meme on a t-shirt

I wouldn't mind having a t-shirt or two with our own little memes.

"noddincap"
"Night of the lolwut Pear"
"I Cum Blood" (ok, not that one)

The most I'd buy would be a keyring or something since I never wear anything other than polo shirts.

I'd like a UG sticker to put on my guitar. I don't usually do that sort of thing, but others might.

This would be cool.
I would buy some stuff especially those UG Dildo's banjocal mentioned.

This sounds like a really good idea. They've got an online magazine, column writers, electronic albums, they should start a whole brand name. Guitars, guitar accessories, clothing, this could be big if they really wanted it to and if the people would support it, like good little UG'ers should.

This is going to be like that time when everybody said they'd totally buy UG Plus and then realised they could just pirate guitar pro and get adblock and then nobody bought UG Plus.

I can definitely see that sort of thing as being very problematic.

Sure but UG will probably put ads all over it and then I won't want it anymore....

Why pirate Guitar Pro when you could use Tuxguitar? I still support the merchandise idea. Add 'various musical software' to the list of merch.

The last time we did this about 5-6 years ago, I was the only one to buy something. I bought a UG coffee mug.

Remember, there are a lot more active members now. 5-6 years ago excludes 07's and up, which comprises a lot of the people that still get on.

5-6 years ago UG had a fraction of the members it does now, not to mention that the merchandise wasn't exactly advertised very well or for very long, for reasons that I was once told but have now forgotten.

UG should have a store.

I'd be interested in the Pit merchandise, but not really UG in overall.

Like, t-shirts that say "what you really need is a new amp" and k koo-keyrings and stuff

Of course the site has grown, and no where in my post did I say I was against it. I was just pointing out that it did not work last time through. Like I said, I could use a new coffee mug.

The problem was that the average age of the UG member was roughly equal to the amount of income per week/month they make. 5-6 years ago most 12-13 year olds did not own a cell phone either. So I say get with the times UG!

Idea: You reckon we could get back in touch with that lad who made that super sweet t-shirt (you all know the thread I'm talking about) and get that made as part of the merch?
