Many of you have been asking me to design an Alex shirt for awhile now, and as most of you know, I finally caved.
There are a few things I wanted to mention before these actually go up online…

1. Once I got started, I had way too many ideas to just pick one idea and run with it. So, you’ll soon see that there are different options and designs to choose from. I figured giving a bigger selection would just be nicer in general.
You’re welcome. :wink:

2. I contacted Alex and Gwen already, but most importantly, I am waiting to hear from the business side on whether this is a go, from a legal standpoint. I’m personally still under contract and will be for awhile, and I want to make sure that by selling these shirts with Alex’s name, lyrics, likeness, etc…that I’m not in any position to somehow end up in court. Haha. So it may be a few days before I can go ahead and make the store live. Just covering all bases.

3. If any of you follow my Twitter or blog, you know that I’m a very big advocate for helping to save or rescue dogs from high-kill shelters and puppy mills. It’s something extremely dear to my heart. Any commission earned from these shirt sales will be donated directly to HelpSaveOne.org to support their efforts in rescuing abused and abandoned animals.

That said, here’s a preview of what I’ve been working on. These aren’t the only colors or available shirt options…there are many more…but again…just a preview on the final designs for you all to see.

For future updates on the Alex Lambert swag, please visit http://www.alexlambertstore.com/ or follow Jessica on Twitter, @jbongiorno.

Thanks Jess!

  2. Wow Jessica, nicely done and very quick! I love the pink one <3

  3. thanks so much for putting this up! I’m excited for the store to go live :) glad you liked the designs! Thanks again for getting the word out. I’ll keep you updated after legal. Thanks!!

    Jessica

  4. Jessica, your tee shirts are really nicely done. I love them.

  5. Hi everyone! I just pop by to say ‘thank you’ so much to the devoted admins and Alex fans for keeping the site better and better.
    Jessica, your designs are awesome and I’d love to buy one :wink:

  6. Love the shirts. The Perfectly Imperfect is my favorite so far. Can’t wait to see the rest. I also think Alex should get a cut of the profits. I’m sure Jessica has all that figured out.

  7. Jessica, you are so talented. I can’t wait until you have all the legalities worked out so we can start ordering. Thanks for everything you’ve done for Alex…& for the things you are still doing!!!
    Also, I am so impressed with all of the updates to the site. I absolutely love the banner. Thanks- Molly & Kassandra (and any other contributors) for the endless time and effort you spend making this such a special fansite. You put heart into it…& it shows.

  8. The shirts look awesome. I really like the dream with my eyes open one.

  9. Awesome.. awesome.. awesome…
    Just don’t forget that not all of Alex’s fans are girls.
    I wanna some of ‘em too. ^_^
    I was so “shocked” with “I dream with my eyes open” shirt.
    It’s so magical. ^_^
    It will be sold outside USA too, right?

  10. @Baqinardo – I’m sure Jess has the guys covered too.

  11. They look awesome! I’m going to be insanely jealous of everyone who buys one :sick: :tongue:

  12. Chrilly, we will need to make sure you get one some how!! I will send you one hon! lol!

  13. I was thinking the same thing, Linda! We’re also great fans of Alex’s FANS!! We’ll make sure she gets one!! Maybe Kassandra will have a plan???

  14. Aw, thanks guys! You’re the best! :wub:

  15. Sorry if things got a bit weird there for a bit guys… everything should be ok now… right? (fingers crossed) – i.e., you should see the scrolling image gallery where the banner used to be??
    Is the site loading super slowly for you guys now though?

    Ha ha sorry for our super unprofessional approach… but hey, we’re all in this together.

    Chrilly, maybe Jess will make just the files available for purchase? So we can download them and get them printed ourselves? That might be a solution… I’ll ask her as soon as I’m done fiddling here and my nerves have settled lol.

  16. Just incase some of yal don’t have twitter, Jessica did post a link, (possibly the same one as on here) but it’s official now…u can buy the Alex Shirts…they have a male and a female tab, so go check em out n get em while their hot!!;) Mahalo!

    Yeah, that could work! :)

  18. Scrolling image gallery looks great on the home page, good job! Site loaded normally for me. T-shirts from Jessica are awesome, I luv the dream with my eyes open one!

  19. Oh…. I just bought 2 sweatshirts…butterflies and dream with my eyes open. :w00t: Hubby will just have to get over it hee hee. :tongue: I like that the butterflies hoodie, (I got the black one) has the design in the back …. I will just have to stay behind my husband at all times ha ha ha

  20. I love Jess’s tees. I’d like to buy a few, but I won’t until I know that Alex is getting paid. Sorry, but I just can’t support this endeavor without knowing that Alex hasn’t felt so beholden to Jessica that he’s not taking his royalties. He can use the money. I truly admire and respect Jessica for starting the petition. But, in the end, it’s Alex’s talent that has gotten him where he is. Sorry, if this post makes some people mad, but that’s just the way I feel about it. If Jessica can confirm that Alex is being paid, I’ll buy a bunch. I’m not comfortable with anyone making money off of Alex unless he’s making money too. I’m not saying she did that. I just want assurance before I buy.

  21. I keep forgetting to say what a killer job you guys are doing with this site! I LOVE IT!!! Whaaa! Too bad Alex doesn’t drop by once in awhile.

  22. @Janet, I’m not sure if you saw Jessica’s tweet today about that, in it she addressed your concern and said that Alex is not being left out on the commission. She confirmed that it was worked out behind the scenes. I trust her word that it is taken care of. I’m pretty sure that if she can’t give details or specifics it’s because she’s under contract. If you need to hear it from Alex himself, then good luck with that, LOL! Jessica seems to be a very smart business woman and I believe she has a very good heart, I really don’t think she would do anything that would screw over Alex.

    Of course you’re entitled to your feelings and opinions, but I’m just sayin’ Jessica has never given me a reason to doubt her. I think it’s great that she did this for the fans and put so much effort into it. It really is a very beautiful collection.

  23. I just placed my order. I love the designs and the selection of shirt styles. Okay I’ll share my purchases: 1 white Dream short sleeve tee, 1 white Imperfectly Perfect long sleeve tee, 1 Butterflies black tank, and my favorite 1 Alex Lambert raspberry short sleeve tee. I couldn’t believe how reasonably priced they were.
    @Janet at those prices there won’t be much of a profit at all. She really is doing this for the fans.
    @Katherine I’m just going to ditto everything that you have written above. I’ve never doubted any of Jessica’s intentions or actions. She’s amazing and I can’t thank her enough for everything that she has done.
    Looking forward to the arrival of my order. :biggrin:

  24. Let me just state for the record that I never doubted Jessica’s intentions. I think she is a sincere and beautiful person. What I doubted was Alex’s realization of the potentially very profitable merchandising of his brand. I haven’t read the tweets yet, but it sounds like all is good. After I read them, if everything sounds cool, I’m going to buy them all!!! Thanks Jessica!
