Welcome to the TAW SHOP:
-Lt. Col. Rekon [DC SHOP]
Let's start with what's going on in TAW Shop. I stepped into my role as DC of TAW Shop on April 22nd of 2017. It was the perfect time to step into my role as we were just about to start the Give 5 Fundraiser for all of TAW. I was really psyched to take on this new role and try to breath some life into the Shop. I'd already started by giving the Shop a starting color scheme of black, tan and brown.
So what better way to start than with the Limited Time Give 5 Shirts for both EU and NA? There's the NA Blackhand, NA WhiteHand, EU Blackhand, and EU Whitehand. We have it setup so that $5 from the purchase of every shirt will come back to TAW and go to the Community Fund. This will qualify a member for the Give 5 Tab, they just have to fill out the form. Also, if members who purchase a Give 5 Shirt message me aswell, I'll issue them a Swagster Tab.
Now another thing that I'm really psyched about: the new tab for member profiles on the TAW website and the new Shop Logo that our Graphics Division created for the Shop. It's really easy for a member to get. All they have to do is buy something from the TAW Shop and then message me a copy of their Order#, Items purchased, and callsign. Once the order clears and I verify it, I'll issue them the TAB. During the past few weeks, we've had over 10 orders and only 4 people have messaged me and gotten the TAB. I encourage members to message me with the details needed to confirm, because I'd love to be able to hand out these tabs.
There's plenty of other stuff in the works for the TAW Shop. In June, with the help of our Graphics Division, we're looking at releasing another shirt design. I'm already working on a "Fall Lineup" which will take me a couple of months to get all the information together for, but it's going to be awesome, so keep an eye out come late summer/early fall.
I've also already created a "Suggestion Box", which I check every couple of days. This allows me to know what our members want to see in the TAW Shop. Please keep in mind, I can only work on creating items that our supplier (spreadshirt) has available. But I do look forward to hearing people's ideas and being able to consider working with them.
In the end, I hope I can do the TAW Shop the justice that it deserves. The items that are available for purchase are for our members to proudly show off their love for our gaming community. I'd like to remind all members that with every purchase from the TAW Shop, some of the proceeds come back to TAW and go to our Community Fund. So each purchase they make helps our community to thrive.
