The first run of Hooniverse Decals: SOLD OUT!

Jeff Glucker April 26, 2012 For Sale, The Store 70 Comments

Well, that was quick.

You magnificent bastards bought all the decals we purchased for our first run. Don’t despair if you missed out on this batch, or wanted to buy enough to fund our desire for a real camera crew. We are hard at work (paying the overseas slave laborers in the Hooniverse mine) on the next round, and this time we’re buying more.

Also, besides a white decal, we’re going to offer up a black one, and either a silver or orange one. Additionally, we are going to offer a few decals that can be placed inside the windshield rather than on the outside of the car, as some of you are asking for that option.

Besides the decals, the next order of business for the store will be to get it stocked with t-shirts. Beyond that, we’re thinking license plate frames and possibly hoodies or hats. Do you have an idea for a product you’d like to see slathered with our logo? Let us know in the comments.

One last note…

Thank you.

  • Scandinavian Flick

    A beanie would be awesome.

    I totally spaced on ordering stickers last night… I'll be in for 4 in black and one white on the next batch.

    • if it is anything like the bender beanie amber was making… i would not hold your breath!

  • Will there be export editions?

    • Bruno Balestra

      Eu comprei 2. Só 0.50 cents o envio!

      Translation: I bought 2. Just 0.50 for shipping!

  • 312e12

    Yes to all.

  • Smells_Homeless

    I'd be approximately one billion percent more likely to put a plate frame on my GTO than a sticker. Also, I love bucket hats, but I may be alone in this.

    • Hmm… I've been meaning to get one…

      • Scandinavian Flick

        A GTO? Yeah, you should.

    • Ditto this

    • Yeah, my cars remain sticker free. Mine's going on the roll away.

  • themagicboltbox

    I'd totally be in for a license plate frame – it would look great next to my "Go To Hell, MI" one.

  • Headline: Hooniverse Sells Out!

    This is probably unpossible, but I would buy a überbird diecast car.

    • PowerTryp

      Second on the überbird diecast car!

    • First Jalopnik, now Hooniverse! Tell me it ain't so.

  • Number_Six

    I have the coolest Hoonimerch item: the "hoque" created by the excellent Ambersand Designs. Get Amber into a sweatshop and start cranking out more of those knit products!

    • Smells_Homeless

      Yeah, I've made my desire for a hoque known and stand by it.

  • Feds_II

    The 12 year old in me is entirely pleased by the placement of the "O" in "OUT".

    I'd rock a Hooniverse-branded Snorkel for my van:

    <img src="http://homepage.ntlworld.com/crispin.summers/scratch/Snorkel.jpg&quot; width=500>

    Probably sell out before I got a chance to buy one.

    • HAHAHA… Not intentional, I swear.

    • Age_of_Aerostar

      took a few looks, but I finally see what you're talkin about!

      tee hee giggle giggle

    • POLAЯ

      Does the snorkel swallow it?

      (I'm only 11!)

  • omg_grip

    Cool. I ordered only 1. And soon I can order moar and in different colors!

    I still have my (used to be) black hooniverse ball cap and I wear it all the time. Its looking pretty faded and worn and I cant really wear it at the office anymore. If those come back ill probably order another one. And also will get mah hands on some shirts this time.

    License plate frame is an good idea, but I probably wouldn't run one with a sticker on the car.

  • Kogashiwa

    Need a tweed flat cap with matching pipe.

    Or how about a white silk scarf?

    Also mugs.

    • PowerTryp

      I thumbs uped for mugs. I would be all over hooniverse mugs.

  • Aw man. That's OK, although I'd love to slap one on the back of the wife's smart, I planned on making all mine out of duck tape anyways.

    You think I'm kidding, don't you? DON'T YOU?!?!?

    <img src="http://www.micromatic.com/images/3/300×300/ES-DT180.jpg"&gt;

    • Scandinavian Flick

      Dude… Hooniverse. Duct. Tape.

      Think about it…

      • I've been thinking for a while…

        …and unsurprisingly I am drawing a blank.

        • Scandinavian Flick

          Similar to custom toilet paper but with duct tape…

          <img src="http://oi50.tinypic.com/av0l0p.jpg&quot; width="250"/>

          Only with less Paris Hilton.

          …and more awesome…

          • BRILLIANT!!!

          • POLAЯ

            Finally! A reason to wipe!

            POOniverse TP?

            Probably not.

            • Scandinavian Flick

              It only wipes sideways.

              • POLAЯ

                Two all beef patties,

                Special sauce,

                Lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions,

                On a sesame-seed bun,

                Came out my nose,

                As I read this,

                At the WalMart.

    • craigsu

      That doesn't look like duck or duct tape. It looks like gaffer's tape to me.

      • Good call. Here's a handy guide to the various forms of magic adhesive tapes…
        http://www.octanecreative.com/ducttape/duckvsduct

      • I buy black duck-tape in bulk. Gaffer's tape tends to fly off when you pirouette.

        FYI.

        • craigsu

          Well, at least you'll never run out of roofing material for the MG. FYI, gaffer's tape and oil paint don't mix.

  • FuzzyPlushroom

    If you do orange, I'll take orange. (Gulf. You get my meaning.) If you don't, I'll take white. Either way, I'm additionally down for a small quantity of this inside-the-glass business.

    I likely also wouldn't say no to plate frames – neither car wears 'em at present.

    • Scandinavian Flick

      Light blue and orange. Buy one of each and set one over the other, slightly offset for shadow effect. Could also do black and gold for a John Player livery, or Martini colors, or….

      Yeah, we need a lot of colors…

      • FuzzyPlushroom

        Light. Blue. Car.

        Already thinking I need to mount my 244's spare hood (navy blue) and Gulfify it, combined with some tasteful black/orange accents on the rest of the car.

        • Scandinavian Flick

          I know your car 😉

          Your post just gave me the idea, so I posted it as a reply. My cars are black and burgundy, so… Yeah…

          • FuzzyPlushroom

            That wasn't meant as a 'you should know that', but rather as a 'look at this awesome'.

            Also, you definitely need black over gold for a John Player GTO.

            • Scandinavian Flick

              Ahh, gotcha. I agree – much awesome indeed!

              John Player GTO… That could be one of those things that might actually be worth doing. So much potential for badass…

  • Stu_Rock

    Thanks for the inside-glass option. Depending on the size, I'll order 2-4.

    License plate frames are a good idea. Be sure you can accommodate both upper (California) and lower (Wisconsin) sticker placement, or offer two types.

    • craigsu

      In addition, the frame should be thin at the bottom edge. NC has a law now that the "North Carolina" printed at the bottom of the plate cannot be obscured. Unfortunately we also have stickers at both top corners, thus leaving little room for personalization. Not sure if other states have similar requirements.

  • Smells_Homeless

    Just remember, scarves are bad mojo in open cars. Just ask Isadora Duncan.

  • MrED

    I had purchased the white Hooniverse t shirt with the little car taking off because I loved the graphic, but the quality of the print on it was pretty low. I hope the next batch will be sharper. I'd be willing to buy another if so.

    • Yeah, our original designs through Spreadshirt didn't have much…engineering behind them.

      We'll be going with properly screen printed stuff this time around.

  • PowerTryp

    I would like a simple shirt, maybe just the H from hooniverse on the front in the center over some sort of obscure mechanical bits.

    Also, magnets. Simple, moveable, elegant magnets.

  • Savant_Idiot

    I'm in for mugs and magnets! The magnets should have depth and look metallic, just like the header on the site.

  • Joe_Btfsplk

    Summer is around the corner…how about HOONIVERSE beach towels and umbrellas? Coolers? Vodka? Condoms?

    • Alcology

      coozies! I can't imagine they'd cost much more than a decal

      • Age_of_Aerostar

        Coozies! good call!

  • Well, I wanted one while they were exclusive, but now I am not so sure…

    • If they change the font for the domain name, each batch can become its own Limited Edition.

  • POLAЯ

    I vow to buy each and every last one of them all!

    Whatever them are!

    I've officially been Hoonied!

    • Smells_Homeless

      Happens to the best of us. You too, I guess.

  • Bruno Balestra

    I'll take some shirts, even polos and an inside-the-glass black one (that one is gonna be saved for the 7forty).
    Shirt designs, I would like to suggest you take a cue from curb designs but whit hooniverse worthy cars such as the Falcon and the Country Squire. Also something related to the speeding ticket…. I dunno. I have an extra proposal, but that's going straight to Jeff in a few days through the email. It does involve a van.

  • Target29

    A Shifter Ball with an….wait for it…..H on it! I know, original right?

    • Let me get legal on that… Legal is our pit bull.

      • PowerTryp

        That's actually a really cool name for a pit bull.

        • Alcology

          not in ontario

    • FuzzyPlushroom

      My car's a five-speed, though. We're gonna need rather large serifs for fifth and reverse, and the present logo doesn't cover that.

  • dukeisduke

    How about a reversed sticker, so I could put it on the inside of the glass?

  • I'm interested in the inside-the-window type sticker, and the plate frame too.

  • GTXEliminator

    Are these clings or stickers? I need something that will survive the rear slider on my Bronco.

    A reasonably priced black shirt or hoody with a Hooniverse logo across the front would also be something I'd probably purchase.

  • HTWHLS

    This is great news! I don't like to do purchases from work and knew these would go quick. I like the inside-the-window option. Skip the hoodies (IMHO) but the license plate frames are good ideas. I've got enough caps to outlive whatever hair I have left. Here's an idea: bring back the "church key" with "Hooniverse.com" stamped, engraved or painted on it.

  • I want a signed copy of Hooniverse: Paperback Edition.

    Seriously, though…beanies, and more stickers, please!

    • tonyola

      I'm waiting for the movie myself.

      • Me too! I just hope that it is available on Betamax!

  • tempesjo

    I received my sticker yesterday. I mean, I received my decal yesterday. Stickers are for kids.

    Now I need to determine what possession of mine is worthy of it.

    I felt a little guilty tearing open that fancy official Hooniverse envelope, though.
