Status King on Cottonable Blog


The Cottonable blog is focused on T-shirt design and trends.

They wrote up a nice article on Status King that I've reproduced below. If you want to see the actual article click here. Cottonable says, "Facebook is pretty ubiquitous these days- chances are that if you're on the internet at all, you have a page and your contacts include friends, family, and even co-workers. At 150,000,000+ members, admitting that you're not on it is tantamount to being Amish.

So it's no wonder that some t-shirt entrepreneurs are taking their businesses right to those masses- and Status King has hit upon a particular niche that should hit home with heavy users of the site. Their Facebook application allows users to proudly wear their Facebook status (or someone else's) as a tee.

Even if your wittiness doesn't extend to coming up with wearable status updates, you'll still find something to do with Status King. They have a contest where you can either enter your best status update (winner gets their tee free) or vote on what other people have come up with. So far the all-time high-scorer is this gem: "Sarah used to play sports. Then she realized you can buy trophies. Now she's good at everything." Think you can do better?"
