What *12ozProphet* product / feature / etc would you like to see?

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I miss the blogs sometimes as well. It's ironic to hear it now, because for the longest time people on the forum hated them. The criticism was that too much attention was being spent on that part and that it was pulling people from the forum.

 

I've considered (and am considering) some options in that regard. Main reason the blogs ended was that the technical side of it was a nightmare. Assume by now the tech is caught up, but managing multiple people posting and separating their uploads / posts into its own little area was a perpetual issue. Almost sounds stupid now, but the amount of hacks it took to develop what we had on WordPress was pretty fucked up. Ultimately we strayed so far from the core functionality that it simply collapsed in on itself. Likewise, running support for 25 - 40 given bloggers was a full time gig. There was always some issue that required attention and when it couldn't be given in a timely manner it just led to frustrations all around. Lastly, there's also issues with how strong, high profile opinions and editorial affect other bloggers, as well as 12oz. I can't even imagine what that would be like in this day and age of massive divisiveness but we faced issues more and more regularly with having to have awkward conversations with people about stuff that was being posted affecting other bloggers in a negative way or throwing 12oz into conversations I wasn't interested in being a part of. Easy to post a disclaimer on a post or blog but when someone puts out something fucked up, it always falls under he umbrella of 12oz. Back then I had advertisers and agency clients to consider, but now that I'm repositioning 12ozProphet back into a brand, it still affects 12oz in a big way. Long gone are the days where it was just about graffiti.

Would be great to have Martha writing about her adventures with 1UP recently. 

 

An additional benefit of a blog is SEO juice also. Google loves new regularly updated content. 

 

Totally understand managing people (and personalities and points of view) would be difficult and time consuming. No thanks to that.

 

I'd be happy just to hear from you or a single writer (journalist, not graffiti writer) interviewing artists, or having a regular series on either the same topic or rotating topics.

 

Hell, could even be a podcast of an interviewer and roll call of artists shooting the shit. 

 

I think what I'm saying is I liked the blogs back in the day, but I don't need you to replicate them.  Just something in the vein of them but fresh for the current climate.

A trucker hat.

 

Maybe its antithetical to the brand of high-end t-shirts and whatnot, but a good hat (not a 5 panel or a fitted) that is worn while working, painting, etc that is made to get fucked up would be awesome. 

 

or maybe I'll just end up putting a 12 patch on a trucker hat

I'd counter that and go I'd be keen on a cap, but not fitted either. Flexfit for me erryday.

Been trying to do hats for a while. Issue is that minimums on the custom shit is too for what I can reasonably sell right now and the stuff offering low minimums is basically me adding an embroidery hit to some generic catalog hat.

 

It'll happen as soon as I can pull it off. Definitely high on my wish list.

I don't buy a lot of graf/street wear stuff these days but I would go bucket hat over the other hats if I had to with maybe something for winter 2nd.

Shot glass.

Ultra Flat Black air freshener or  incense

Novelty condoms with snappy sayings.  For the average dude, 'Legal Eagles: For the guy who wants to spray without consequences.'  Magnums that say 12" Prophet.

I always appreciate matches, more so when someone does wooden matches with the small box.  On 2nd thought, don't think you can mail those out= hassle.

Dondi action figure (really only needs to be made in one pose)

Might go for a mini flashlight (not ultra), something solid, be cool if the end cap had tactical/defensive/survival component

I def agree on the art prints, TNF,  and sneakers!

 

Hats, patches, pins and T's have been knockouts. I get compliments from people from all walks of life.

 

I'd like a 12oz hoodie. Pullover or zip-up (whatevers clever).  Pullover cuz shit is classic cozy. Zip-up so I can flex 2 12oz jawns at the same damn time!

Any way to do reversible products? I think this can work with like a coach jacket or what homie above was saying about a bucket hat and/or beanie/balaclave/etc. Or maybe even a tote bag? 

 

Def need another run of skateboards. If not skateboards, would be dope to make 12oz custom cut out or graphic griptape. A all over grip with Oiler's handstyle would be bananas!

 

More colors/designs for BIC lighters.

 

Last thing I can think of is like office stationary shit for all the corporate thugs out there. Got my pens and pencils on deck already. Maybe post-its, notepad or a stamp?  lol I know its a reach but had to throw it out there. Tryna rep when I'm on the clock.

Dog gear

+1 to these.  My dog currently wears a bandana that says "fuck cancer" but I'd happily put 12oz bandanas on both my dog and my cat.  I guess it's really a half bandana because it's just a triangle of material with print on it.

 

I'd like a pair of NICE socks.... like Nike Dri Fit ($20+/pr) level of quality.

 

I wouldn't mind a NICE coffee mug.... not the standard mug shape.  I like big coffee mugs.

Funny, was actually working on some dog related stuff. Collar and leads.

Jesus titty fucking christ dude. When I first scrolled past this I thought you were trolling me personally by photoshopping my face onto this dude. Upon closer inspection this guy is like the off brand version of me. Its uncanny.
