Startup Schwag: A Web 2.0 Goody Bag
It's hard being a web enthusiast in the middle of America. The excitement and value of technology isn't nearly as apparent as it is on the east coast, much less the west coast, so imagine how difficult it can be to find any sort of tech-related apparel around here.
A few months ago a friend mentioned a service called Startup Schwag to me. Startup Schwag is subscription based service that sends you a T-Shirt and stickers every month featuring a new Web 2.0 startup. This past month I received a Viddler T-shirt. Past T-shirts include:
- Tech Crunch
The subscription fee is relatively low, at $15 a month (plus shipping, of course). That's just the price of a T-shirt and considering it's almost impossible to find web-related shirts where I live, it's well worth the price. And since the shirts are mostly for companies considered "startups," I get to be one of the first to sport the startup's gear.
If you just want one specific company's t-shirt, you can also visit their shop. The selection is small now but should expand in the future.
If you're in a position like me where tech apparel is hard to find or you simply want to grab a web-loving friend a last-minute Christmas gift, hop over and subscribe to Startup Schwag. The nerd in them will appreciate it.
