limited production :: hand crafted :: high performance :: rechargeable :: premium flashlights

This is my blog about creating a startup LED flashlight business. I'm a designer, fabricator, and strategist and I'm passionate about making ideas real. I believe that products are about people, that they should be built to last, deliver real value, and that we need to do a better job than we have in the recent past.

Most of my career has been contract or freelance work and I've crafted products and strategies for both big international companies and startups. I also used to work in the "industry" fabricating special effects for film and TV, along with the occasional hot rod. Bottom line, I love making things.

I'm starting this blog so you can follow along, from day one, and see what it's like to start a business, or fail in the process. Only time will tell, but I hope you find this interesting enough to stay tuned, comment, link, like, tweet, and (most importantly) participate in turning this idea into something tangible and valuable.

Need a Prometheus Logo Shirt + Giveaway Contest?

Every once in a while I have someone ask about a logo shirt. I get mine from Zazzle, so I finally figured out how to set it up so anyone can order a shirt!

Actually, you can have my logo printed on 84 different pieces of clothing. However, I recommend the American Apparel Basic T-Shirt. This will appear as your default option and you can choose from 23 different colors. AA shirts tend to run a size small but are fairly long in the torso, so you won't end up with a belly shirt after washing it a couple of times. I wear an XL and I'm 6 feet and 200 lbs. I really do recommend this over the cheaper Basic T-Shirt option. If you are getting a hoodie or something, you are on your own :)

You'll notice the shirts are expensive...about $25-$30 bucks...and that's because I make a huge amount of money on each sale: $1.50 . One dollar and fifty cents in case you aren't good with numbers :) Bottom line is, it's not cheap to have one (1) shirt custom printed just for you, and that is what Zazzle will do.

Since I'm not (really) making any money on these, please post a photo of yourself (in the shirt duh) on my Facebook page! When Christmas rolls around, the owner of the photo I like "the most" will get a Lambda Top as a Christmas present!

  1. What an amazing idea for a raffle giveaway. I think the Prometheus Logo Shirt is uber cool and I'm sure the turnout will be great. Maybe I could join up too. Hahaha! Anyway, thanks for sharing that! More power to you and your shop!
