Yesterday, I was greeted by a FedEx man who handed me a package that contained my complimentary StartUpSchwag that I wrote about back in September. ( From ValleySchwag To StartupSchwag ) Inside the package: one yellow squishy star, one CAKE sticker, one ChicagoProps.com sticker and of course, my very own Michael Arrington approved TechCrunch T-Shirt.
The shirt I received was a large TechCrunch colored green T-Shirt made out of 100% Cotton. The brand name of TechCrunch was printed on the chest part of the shirt in a combination of white and black letters on a green background. The quality appears to be top notch but I’ll have a better understanding after I wash it a few times as a washer can wreak havoc on a new T-Shirt. Personally, I think this T-Shirt would look wonderful on Tim, but I’m sure he would find other uses for it.
If you were thinking about paying the subscription to receive such items from a surprise company each month, I’d say it’s worth it. The worst that could happen is that you ONLY receive a Tshirt. That’s ok, because that is pretty much what your paying for to begin with. Everything else is just complimentary.
Below is a small video review of the schwag I received. It’s not much but I think its better than nothing. Also posted below are a few photos I took. Click on any of the photos to see a larger size.
