If you ever saw me at a conference, you probably asked me for one of the famous PLoS t-shirts. Or you did not even have to ask – I just gave you one.
Or perhaps you won one of our contests in the past – a synchroblogging anniversary competition, or a Blog Pick Of The Month – in which case you also got one of the shirts.
If you attended one of the previous ScienceOnline meetings, you got a PLoS ONE shirt.
Over the past two years or so, I went through an enormous box of PLoS swag, not just shirts, but also stickers, mouse-pads, pens, decals, etc. Other PLoS employees do the same, whenever they travel.
And we’ll keep doing this, of course. But now, we will have a much broader range of products to offer AND, most importantly, you don’t have to wait to meet us – you can now order one for yourself.
Yes, yesterday we launched the amazing PLoS Store. We peer-reviewed all the potential suppliers and chose Zazzle. We even peer-reviewed the shirts ourselves: San Francisco staffers got some shirts, wore them, washed them, and reported that they held up nicely.
Go take a look and get your holiday shopping started!
