Ai symbol Finally, Aiki-Inspired Apparel

Hey everyone! Christopher Green here, Head Instructor at Mizu Aikido of Fort Worth. I just recently joined AikiWeb, still kinda new to this forum. In addition to my love for Aikido, I am also a designer by trade and have a passion for producing nicely-designed T-shirts. I, probably just like you, have experienced the lack of Aikido apparel in the marketplace. Well, I'm trying to remedy that. The site is AikidoWear.com. I have 5 shirts now, with more to come. My Aikido students are buying them up, but I would like to get the word out to everyone else.

Please feel free to visit the site yourself and share it with others. I look forward to your selections. Feedback welcomed.

Re: Finally, Aiki-Inspired Apparel

I really like your designs!

If I may make a few suggestions regarding your site:

I, personally, would feel more comfortable purchasing from you if you had a privacy policy, a returns policy and perhaps a basic outline of the purchase process; delivery times etc

Oh and do you deliver outside of the US

Re: Finally, Aiki-Inspired Apparel

Hi Christopher,

The blue wave graphic is very nice, did you draw it?

Do you have any women-shaped shirts?
I enjoy the fit better.

Thanks,

Wink Re: Finally, Aiki-Inspired Apparel

Thanks for your feedback. I will definitely look into the privacy policy. I have a customer service link at the bottom of my sight for problems or questions. And yes I do ship outside the USA.

Re: Finally, Aiki-Inspired Apparel

Hi Christopher,

Love your site and really cool t-shirts... but you should check your HTML. No <title>, no <description> and no <keywords>. Your site is never gonna be picked up by search engines. Fix that or make some one do it for you.

All the best

Re: Finally, Aiki-Inspired Apparel

Hey Christopher!

I live outside the US but I'm all for buying the women's Fashion T-shirt. I was wondering if you could give me some measurements for a Small and a Medium? Just so I can get an idea.

Thanks very much!
Keep up the great work, excellent stuff!

Re: Finally, Aiki-Inspired Apparel

Looks like I was quoted a wrong price on shipping to England. It shouldn't be more than $7.00 to ship. Sorry.

Re: Finally, Aiki-Inspired Apparel

I'm always updating and printing new shirts. If you are interested, I can definitely see about a Blue WAVE Shirt for women.

Re: Finally, Aiki-Inspired Apparel

Some differnt colors would also be nice with each shirt. Hunter Green, Royal Blue, Navy Blue, maybe a pink for th ladies, Red. Just a thought. Love the shirts.

Re: Finally, Aiki-Inspired Apparel

Hi...

I was wondering what's up with the aikidowear.com site?

I had ordered two shirts this fall (which both are mega-fabulous btw )

Lately, I have had a LOT of people ask me about them. So, I finally found the thread that had the info (yhea!) .
But when I go to the site the page is blank Are the shirts still available?

I hope so they truly are well liked!
Thanks
E
