Thanks for all the recent orders!

May 6th, 2014

Hey all. It must be t-shirt season; we’ve picked up a ton of orders lately. Turn-around time is still about two days. We’ll post if it’s taking longer than that, but so far, so good. (A lot depends on how fast I can get to the post office.) If you have any questions, Twitter is the best way to get a hold of us: @flyover_state. Thanks again for your interest in Flyover State.

This was Team Flyover State’s fifth SXSW and the first since 2005. (An aside: I could really use name for writing stuff like this, something like Bobby Hundreds. But “Erik Flyover” just sounds terrible. Whatever.) And recession be damned, it seemed busier than ever.
