"Cuming Clean" condoms. Too childish? Or how about some that says "Nice Guys Finnish Last"? :eyebrows:

I dig the keychain idea. Maybe the Lightning Man would be a cool design?

Would anyone buy something like this for around $15~?

 

I've got a Green Day Dr one in my room and I've been wanting another one so I definitely would.

I really liked the old t-shirt that said Green Day Authority on the back! (were there GDC ones? That I would really like to buy) 

I wouldn't really buy any other merch apart from t-shirts, that's why I'm always talking about t-shirts  :P

A mug (or cup), with '409 in your coffeemaker' ;) (or a part of " I fell asleep while watching Spike TV, after 10 cups of coffee" :) )

Ok, I love wristbands but I prefer the bigger ones. But this is not the point... you could sell them with other great Green Day lyrics (I love Walking Contraddiction for example)!

I like the keychain idea. GDA on one side; GDC on the other. Simple.

YES! I've been wanting to get one of those made, and this way I'd support GDC in the process. (And if we couldn't do that because there's an official one, how about a Christie Road one?)

It could be expensive but what about Zippo lighters with the GDA logo.

How about earphones or earbuds? Its something different and it can be a collectors item and sell it for a limited time. I'm not sure what they would look like yet but I think it could be a cool idea.

I'd love a GDC t-shirt. It would be a great way to meet other GDC'ers in line for shows. I'm thinking a plain black or white t-shirt with the logo, and maybe a "Hello my username is ......" field on it, where you could write your name with a textile/waterproof marker.

Another idea is "Hello my username is" stickers, that you could stick to your t-shirt when going to a show. They could have the GDC logo on them and maybe some trilogy artwork background (if that is allowed), making them different from the standard "Hello my name is" stickers.

That's the type of stuff we're looking into, it's why we need ideas as to what to get :)


 

I like them. They'd be cheap to make and they look cool.

As for the swearing problem - we probably won't do anything with cursing on them anymore. We've tried them in the past and they haven't sold too well so we try to stay away from that stuff. We've had a few designs that featured swearing and we ended up having it removed before selling it.

A foam hand (like in sports) with the Hand and heart from American idiot.

A charm bracelet with horseshoes and Handgrenades on them

A thicker rubber bracelet with rage and love written in a tattoo style script

I would also like 2-3 inch stickers so I could put it on my laptop or whatever. Maybe of their guitars/basses, and you can reuse the design of the like a rat does cheese and other posters.. And put it in a pack of 5 or so.

A concert ticket stub album with green day style graffiti all over it would be pretty awesome and unique.

A set of 3 shot glasses with UNO DOS TRE and xxs that match the colour scheme of the album.

A lighter - with the lyric "I just wanna see the light"

I have a ton of ideas... I will be back

How 'bout some of those iron-on patch things? They could have various GD symbols (21st century skulls, the eagle, XX, AI grenade, fuck bunny, rage&love...) or ones similar to the ones Billie Joe has on his jackets. It would be a cool way to customize our clothing, and they look really cool. I have a bunch of plain black jackets just waiting to be Green Day-ized.

That's a possibility. The company we use to get our shirts made also make custom umbrellas. We could sell them around $20~ so that's not too bad.

Or toothbrushes that say "Geek Stink Breath" on them


Imagine at like a stadium gig and everybody opens up their oh love umbrella while the band play the song...would make for some picture/video

What about a t-shirt that says "Fashion Victim"...

Or a t-shirt that says "I wrote Holden Caulfield"

Or like a missing dog poster, but instead of a dog it has a heart in the photo bit...as in Stray Heart

Or a t-shirt with the word revolutions over it...99 times to be precise???

The first thing I think of is something like GDA/C pin badges because they're quite subtle. Maybe they could have the site logo on them and then the uno/dos/tre/quatre striped backgrounds?

This is genius, man :lol:
