The first order from the new Newfoundland and Labrador Archaeological Society CafePress Shop arrived yesterday afternoon. This was my first time ordering anything from CafePress, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I'm really happy with the quality of all the products. Lori got a canvas tote bag and a 1 litre sigg water bottle. I got the same water bottle and a hat.
The NLAS will be rolling out new products from time to time, but there is already a lot to choose from. I'd certainly recommend the water bottles and canvas bags to friends. The hat is a good quality hat, but there's something about a transfer print on a hat that looks a little flat. We'll get embroidered hats sometime, but for now, if the printing on the t-shirts is anything like the printing on the bag, then I'd say get a t-shirt instead. I'm really happy with this shop and Catherine Jalbert and the NLAS events committee deserves a big pat on the back for this. The NLAS share of sales from the shop goes towards sponsoring our upcoming talks and workshops; like the Archaeology Skills Workshop: How to Report an Archaeology Site coming up this Sunday, May 18th.
