I know that it isn't the purpose for the site, but I think it would be great to have a store where you can purchase LitReactor notebooks, or pens, or coffee mugs, or hats...anything really. I'm hooked on this site already, and if I could advertise with a Tshirt, that would be great. Maybe LitReactor could sell dvds of video lectures or interviews in the future, who knows. But I am for anything that helps a site like this prosper as much as possible. 

Any thoughts?


Hell, I'd even like a LitReactor desktop wallpaper, maybe someone should put together a contest over at DeviantArt.

I second this idea.  I would be the first to buy a LitReactor notebook and pen.  Feeding my obsession of paper, and my growing obsession of this site to help promote would be awesome.

I had a dream I was wearing a litreactor t-shirt. This is a really good idea.

I need LitReactor business cards.  I've had to write down the url about eight times so far on the back of my regular business card.

A LitReactor shirt and coffee mug would be purchased by me immediately upon availability. Though I do like the pharmaceuticals idea...

And seventy-year-old typewriter ribbons.  And carbon paper.  And cuneiform utensils.  And papyrus.  And DIY offset printing kits.

Alright I'll start making theses things and I can promise that all of the proceeds will go to the lawsuits that follow.

@jacks -- since there's no 'like' button, I'm just going to flag you instead.

I've wanted a t-shirt since the first time I saw the logo. And I second the wallpaper suggestion, too. There are plenty of third-party printing platforms online that could make a LitReactor store a cakewalk.

Thanks for the support everyone. We certainly have ideas of things we want to do and will, in time. We don't use third-party platforms for stuff like this though because frankly, we have standards. Standards that those services don't typically meet. So though it might be easy to set up a cafepress, we just don't feel that it is worth it, in the long run.

We already have some ideas brewing though, so keep your eyes peeled.
