What a Novel Idea: New Swag Comes to Novelties

Katie Arnold - VPOF
Posted on: January 28, 2017

We’ve heard your cries and we’re ready to deliver! Get ready for an entirely new design of Engineering Sweatpants! We’re excited to bring a design of sweatpants into Novelties featuring the Ridgid Tool. We’re trying out a new system for ordering this term to make sure everyone who is interested can have a size that fits them, so stay tuned for more information as it develops!
Our friends who attended CFES Congress this January brought back two new patches to sell in our store; the CFES (Canadian Federation of Engineering Students) and the Engineers Canada patch now available for $5 each. These patches join the Hard Hat Goose patch introduced by VP Finance Abdullah, based on last year’s NEM patch.
As IRS approaches, look out for our Iron Ringer patch. Long since out of stock, we’re bringing these patches back just in time for our fourth years! While you’re in there, don’t forget to pick up your How Many Days ‘Til IRS chevrons! We love our fourth years, please drop by and pick up some swag to remember us by.
Keep an eye out for the outcome of Katie Chin’s Patch Design competition! Submissions were collected from engineering students and voting will commence shortly. The winner of the contest will win 5 patches of their own design, and the patch will be brought in as stock to Novelties, available for purchase by anyone. New patches are coming your way!
For our less patch-inclined Engineers, we currently have an incredible stock of T-Shirts available to display your Eng Pride. The EngSoc Logo, Lady Godiva, the POETS Lager and others are currently available in Novelties for $15. We also have (my favourite item in stock) EngSoc Baseball Tees available for $17.
We have several glassware and drinking options available in our store as well! Need a water bottle for your morning runs? Accidentally break your favourite mug this morning? Need a smooth way to carry your BEvERages? From shot glass you can send to your friends to ceramic mugs you can buy for your mom, we have every solution to any of your drinking needs!
Our team of Novelties directors have a wonderful list of ideas that we’re working towards together. I’m honoured to be part of this inspired team, and I’m excited to see what other things we’ll have by the end of this term.
Keep your eyes peeled and feel free to drop into Novelties anytime between 11:30 and 1:30 Monday to Friday!
