CafePress goes to Washington
As mentioned previously, the CafePress Ground Crew flew to the 2009 Inauguration to take part in the Obama celebration that had been happening via the almighty T-shirt for the bulk of 2008. With Obama T-shirts and gifts being added to our system at breakneck speed, in 6 months the then-Democratic-not-yet-presumptive-nominee had more t-shirts made about him than George Bush had amassed in 8 years.
In any case, we hit the ground in D.C. armed (literally) with thousands of free buttons for all the folks who’d showed up from far-flung states and nations to witness history with 2 million of their closest friends.
After recovering from being outside in sub-freezing temperatures for a couple days, we put together this piece as a snapshot of the all the nice folks we encountered during our Inauguration adventures. Enjoy…
Oh – for those of you wondering, we did shoot all this video with the ever-portable Flip Mino HD. Because bulky video cameras are hard to lug around, and even harder to use on a carousel.
