Help the NC Army National Guard’s 1-130th Attack Recon Bn Get New T-Shirts by Buying One for Yourself

Thursday, November 29th, 2018

Military support artist Travis Getz of Squadron Store was tapped to create the emblems for both Task Force Panther – currently fighting in Afghanistan – and the NC Army National Guard’s 1-130th Attack Recon Battalion, an AH-64 unit that is part of TF Panther.  The Panthers requested shirts but are having trouble meeting a minimum order quantity for their black PT shirt, which is printed on a high quality blended material shirt with moisture wicking properties.  You can help the unit get their morale-boosting shirts by ordering one for yourself.  Sizes go from Youth XS to Adult 5XL and start at $13 (plus tax/shipping).  Orders must be placed by midnight tomorrow (Friday, November 30, 2018).

I spoke with Travis about this endeavor and he had this to add.

Task Force Panther’s CO (currently in Afghanistan) asked me to do their TF emblem.  That went well and I produced it on shirts, coins, stickers, etc.  They ordered in  bulk, it was great.

The Panthers, our local NC AH-64 Apache unit, asked me to work up branding for their unit.  The design was approved by the CO, they put my Panther head design on their engine cowlings, ordered stickers in bulk, it’s awesome!!!

They wanted shirts.  The same type/quality I’d produced for Task Force Panther.  But they asked if I could take the orders individually instead of them having to collect money/arrange a bulk order on their side.   The Task Force is embroiled in the recent flair up in attacks in Afghanistan and so after talking to the family, I decided the best thing to do was to offer the shirts for direct order through my Etsy site.  This is a shift for me because usually I only do bulk orders to units, but it didn’t seem right to have someone ‘off mission’ in order to wrangle the complexities of a shirt order.

One of the shirts, a black PT shirt, only has 22 orders, which is far below minimum order quantity.

Do you think you could consider getting the word out to your readers that – if they want – they can purchase a cool shirt for themselves and help make the Panthers Soldiers and their families/friends getting their shirts a reality?

IMPORTANT:  ordering closes Midnight this Friday (tomorrow) November, 30, 2018!

Kitfox Design Group Launches Firearm Cookie Cutters

Wednesday, November 21st, 2018

Combining your love of baked goods and weapons

BOISE, IDAHO (November 21, 2018) – Do you remember when Kitfox Design Group broke the internet by creating a coloring book full of firearms? It’s hard to forget, since it sold like wildfire and was featured nearly everywhere. This time around Kitfox is releasing a set of five firearm themed cookie cutters. Available as of 9 a.m. Eastern Time today on the Kitfox Design Group website, there is no better way to express your love for firearms at Aunt Judith’s annual holiday party than a plate full of revolver shaped sugar cookies.

Some customers are already saying “that’s the most awesome thing I’ve seen in ages!” If you don’t think these cookie cutters are awesome and hilarious, go ahead and forward this along to someone with a sense of humor. The cookie cutters are quite literally perfect for every occasion.

Going to a boring holiday party and want to spice things up with some Krinkov shaped gingerbread cookies? You got it! “My wife and mother in law are giving me shady looks about the cookie cutters. I love it!” They’re sure to trigger your safe space loving blue haired cousin, too. Maybe you’re just taking it easy this holiday season, and simply want to eat a glock shaped keto shortbread cookie with your veteran-brewed coffee while wearing your Kalashnikov-themed ugly Christmas sweater.

It doesn’t matter what kind of cookies you make or how you decorate them – these cookie cutters are sure to create some sweet conversation about firearms this holiday season. That is ultimately the goal of Kitfox Design Group: creating the opportunity for positive conversations surrounding firearms without having to be at the range or at a gun counter. It doesn’t get much more American than this.

Kitfox Design Group is headed up by Sara Westman, a graphic designer and technical illustrator in the firearms industry, known for her Firearm Coloring Books and high detail firearm morale patches.
