Slice of Life Tees has Summer Plans

Slice of Life Tees has Summer Plans

Here at Slice of Life, we seem to spend all of our time either slaving away in the kitchen or designing new t-shirts with our foodie friends in mind. While we love our time in the kitchen (honestly, Punk slaves in the kitchen, I just do dishes), it’s the design time I get really excited about. We just unveiled “Food Porn Star”, our newest shirt, back from the printer. Next up will probably be “Bad Ass Baker”, a biker themed baker’s tee. After that? Well, we’ve got a bunch of stuff lined up:...

Food Porn Star is live!

Food Porn Star is live!

  It took longer than we had planned (finding the new printer took longer than we expected), but our new t-shirts, “Food Porn Star”, finally arrived via UPS the other day. We’re really pleased with the way they turned out, but we’re not happy with how long it took. It took almost a month from the time we approved the proof . That’s at LEAST a week too long. Ironically, in that time, it turns out another company bought our old printer (the company that folded). So we are in talks with them about possibly...

Our newest design, “Food Porn Star”!

Our newest design, “Food Porn Star”!

After dealing with our printing company suddenly folding, we’ve been searching high & low for a new one. We’ve finally narrowed it down to 2, and will be getting quotes from them this week for our newest design, “Food Porn Star”! Looking back, we’ve realized that, while we love our designs, we could be a little… bolder. We’ve erred on the safe side, with color choices, with the size of the prints, etc. No more – we’re going to start kicking it up a notch. We’ll be making the...

Foodies, t-shirts & festivals – lessons learned

Foodies, t-shirts & festivals – lessons learned

This has been our first summer selling SLICE of LIFE Tees at food festivals, and we’ve gotten a lot out of it, in a variety of ways. First and foremost, we’ve started to get our name out there. “Slice of Life” is, we think, a name that (with the slightly troubling overlap with “Dexter”) sort of stands out, so we hope that our name starts to register when people think of t-shirts for foodies. The festivals have been mostly local ones, but you have to start somewhere. We may be crazy optimistic, but we have...

The last 2 weeks, pt 2: Irene, Festivals & more…

So yeah… hurricane Irene. She was NOT a lot of fun here in Connecticut. All things considered, our area was fairly lucky. We had a fair amount of wind damage, but luckily, very little rain. We lost a good portion of one tree (and some fence), and power for a few days. But we had everything back & ready for the following weekend, which was good, since we had the first of many food festivals that weekend. We weren’t there selling shirts, we were there for Punk’s restaurant, The North End, selling burgers, & fried...

The last 2 weeks, pt 1: “Chew”ing it up!

The last 2 weeks, pt 1: “Chew”ing it up!

It’s been a helluva 2 weeks! We were just looking back over the last 2 weeks, and honestly? We’re exhausted. In that time we’ve dealt with (in no particular order) a hurricane, an earthquake, new designs, missing hats, TV shows, food festivals, loss of power, and more. Frankly, just looking at that list of events on papers makes us want to take a nap. Here’s how the last 14 days went… 2 weeks ago we were busy getting ready for our trip to NYC for a sneak peek taping of “The Chew”. With 5 hosts (3 of whom...
