Tip Jar Sayings and How to Make a Tip Jar that Stands Out

Every sandwich artist, barista and movie popcorn counter worker knows that tips are vital for service workers' existence. The best way to get good tips, of course, is to give great service! Smile, act like you're happy to see someone and happy to make their coffee (even when you aren't), and cultivate relationships. But even the best customer won't usually tip if the tip jar isn't readily visible. I don't know how many times I've had to ask "Do you have a tip jar?" only to be directed to some little baby food jar shoved in a corner, or some nasty old jar with a frayed and barely legible hand written "TIPS" label stuck on with yellowing tape.
A tip jar that's attractive, has a funny saying, appeals to the customer's sense of fun or guilt, or merely is eye-catching, can go a long way toward encouraging customers to drop a few extra quarters. Here are a few tip jar stickers you can order from Cafepress to brighten up your tip jar!

Pick up a bunch, for the holidays and after!

Top Ten Funny Donald Trump T-shirts

New polls are putting Donald Trump securely in first place in the race for the Republican nomination for President of the United States. According to CNBC:
"The new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows the billionaire real estate mogul still leading all GOP rivals with 25 percent of the vote. In September, he drew 21 percent. That change falls within 4.9 percent margin for error in the survey of 400 Republican primary voters."
Really, people?
But, if that's the case, there must be plenty of fun Donald Trump t-shirts out there just waiting to be snapped up for posterity! We headed over to Zazzle to have a look, and we hit the motherlode! Have a look and a laugh. We predict these will be HUUUUUGGGGGGE sellers for the holidays! or not...

New Billy the Kid photograph is worth $5 million

Described as the "Holy Grail" of photography, a new photo said to be of Billy the Kid (aka William H Bonney) has surfaced, and will be sold by California dealer Kagin's. It can be yours for only $5 million!

Close-up image showing the Kid (left) holding a croquet mallet instead of a rifle

The photo was taken as Billy was playing croquet with a group of Lincoln County Regulators, an American old west deputized posse that fought in the Lincoln County War.
Kevin Costner will narrate and produce a two-hour documentary for National Geographic Channel, covering Western Americana enthusiast Randy Guijarro’ s odyssey to authenticate this unique photograph. The program airs October 18th.
But just in case you can't afford the 5 mill that it will take to purchase this priceless artifact, you can still get yourself a tshirt with a Billy the Kid quote, at Amazon.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month -

One day there won't be a need for this annual post. One day breast cancer will be annihilated in this country, and in the world. One day, we'll have a vaccine, or a pill, or some other simple remedy for breast cancer. But until that day, we all need to keep the focus on awareness, treatment, prevention, and finding a cure. Tshirts are one way to raise awareness.
Cafepress has always been very good about opening a Breast Cancer Awareness portal with a percent of the profit donated to breast cancer causes. I've been attempting to contact folks there to see if that's still going to be the case this year. IN the meantime, here are some new tshirts from my shop at Cafepress, and I do donate. They are all available in my shop at Scarebaby Design. Please visit.
