On March 17th, my friends (Maria and Parker) and I will attempt to be chosen as contestants on The Price is Right, the popular American game show based on pricing consumer goods. We’ve been studying the TV show, iPhone app and Wii video game to figure out what makes a good contestant. We’ve narrowed it down to three categories:
1.) Knowledge of retail prices. This sure helps if you want to make it to the Showcase Showdown for a chance to win a brand new caaaaaaaaar!
2.) Enthusiasm. The key to being chosen as a contestant is having a genuine enthusiasm and love for TPIR. Flaunt it!
3.) An awesome custom shirt. Nothing says enthusiasm like preparing for the stage by creating your very own custom t-shirt. Maria did a bit of research on The Best Price is Right T-Shirts and reported back to the team. A truly spirited (and awesome) t-shirt should be bright and creative.
Our team brainstormed for a while, and we came up with “I $ TPIR”, with our nicknames on the backs. What does “I $ TPIR” really mean? We’re really not sure what “dollar sign” as a verb really signifies. But we’re hoping it will bring us luck and the chance to play Plinko on the big stage!
Some of you may be wondering how you can create your very own custom t-shirts for TPIR. Well, let me make a recommendation. If you’re in New York City, don’t go anywhere else other than Star Screening. Located in Brooklyn (at 6409 14th Ave. – Phone: 718.234.4190 – Email: firstname.lastname@example.org – Fax: 718.234.4201), Star Screening is owned by Giovanni D’Onofrio. They do all types of screenprinting, including shirts, caps, jackets, bags, uniforms… you name it, they do it. Their work is of the highest quality at the best prices.
Check out some pictures of Star Screening below. When I picked up our TPIR shirts, I was able to take a quick tour of the screen printing area. Since I had never seen automatic screen printing machines, it was a new experience. I’m sending a special thanks to the crew for the tour! And last but not least, thank you to Carmine and Giovanni for making these shirts possible!
