A Super Easy Way to Support 11W

We're fortunate to have an amazing group of readers. You have supported us through the years whether through our fundraiser to hire a beat writer, purchasing shirts from Eleven Warriors Dry Goods or just showing up and being funny, creative and insightful in the comments.

As we grow, we're looking to bring you more coverage of your beloved Buckeyes – for instance, we plan to send Kyle to the US Army All-American Bowl at the end of this month – but this coverage isn't cheap (do you know how much it costs us for a hotel room that will sleep Kyle and his five poodles?).

We're not asking for handouts, but with holiday season in full swing, we realize that many of you will be shopping Amazon to purchase gifts for family and loved ones. If you are an Amazon shopper and wouldn't mind using our affiliate link to purchase your gifts, we'll receive a small cut of whatever you purchase at no extra cost to you. It's literally the easiest way you can support this site with your wallet.

If you want to send the link to everyone you know, we'll love you even more.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. Go Bucks!

Put Walt's new undefeated poster onto some 11W T-shirts. I will buy them, and get them autographed by Walt for a small fee , I would, and so would many others spring for that as well.

Make this seasons posters into actual posters! I wouldn't mind framing a few for my room.

Buying a nice glossy poster, getting it framed. This would be a great Christmas gift guys.
Autographed, send off to all our Buckeye fans  and (rivals).
There is money to be made here on this one.

We're looking into something with the posters, but the short of it is that we cannot sell the posters as posters or on t-shirts until we get licensing figured out. And even then, it may not be worth it as we'd have to seek licenses from several schools, not just Ohio State.

I'm picking up some more hours at work in the coming weeks. I'll have some extra discretionary funds to throw to 11W, you guys deserve it.

Thank you!

Being an RV grad, at least you don't have to supply Kyle with a night light. He should glow in the dark fairly well.
I find myself forgetting to use the 11W link. Would there be any way to put it near the top of the page? This is usually the first website I visit in the morning, and the reminder would be helpful.

It's always on the sidebar under "RESOURCES" but we'll look at highlighting it a little better.

@Buck1 - Is this "RV" you're referring to River Valley in Marion, OH?

Just bought a book that I have been wanting for a while. Now I finally had a good enough reason to do so.

Thank you!

Done. I buy something from Amazon almost every week, so this is an easy way to raise money for you. Love this site.

Thank you!

If you guys did a complete poster series for this season, in 11" 17" or larger, maybe 12"x 36", I would absolutely buy them to support both Walt Keys, and this site.

I think they are worried about trademark infringment if they were to make money using OSU and other team's logos.

I think a lot of is close enough to "parody" that they could get away with it.
There is a site www.barbershopwindow.com (I have no affiliation to) that does a lot of wrestling related shirts. They aren't shut down becasue there's no trademark infringements and all the art is original. But its close enough that you know what/who the shirt is about.

I shall finish my xmas shopping using this link. I agree that it's not visable enough currently.
 
(unless I adblocked it. In that case I semi apologize)

You should disable ad-block for this site. We're trying to keep it free and ad-block severely limits our ability to do that.

Crap, just bought some stuff yesterday :-/ Is this a long-time/permanent option, or just through the holidays? Thanks for everything all of you bring to this site.

Done just did a sizeable order you should see soon....You guys deserve it.  Hopefully my wife gets me that "Its dangerous to go alone" shirt that I asked for!

Thank you!

I recommend as a brief segment on the 11Dubcast a reading of some interesting stuff people have bought off Amazon through the link.
They do this on a podcast I listen to: The Film Vault.
It's a good reminder that this exists and may inspire people to buy.

You guys always send out this reminder after I've done all of my holiday shopping. But I'm still overseas for a couple more months and so I'm sure I'll be using Amazon at least 20 more times. I will make sure to use the link.

Company Christmas party is tonight when we all get our bonus checks and we never know for how much so I always put off my shopping until I get the check. So, I'll be here tomorrow as I'm sure I want the 12-OH shirts etc.  Love the poster.  I noticed there is room over the fireplace for more mounts....

And... it appears as if the original shortened I included above is no longer working with our Amazon tracking ID. Sigh... 11W, good at Buckeyes, bad at making money.

Here's an updated link: http://www.amazon.com/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=ur2&tag=elevewarri-20

Thanks again, everyone.
