Unless you have been living under a rock, and no judgement if you have, I’m sure by now you’ve heard of the legal battle taking place between Bo, of EatMoreKale.com and Corporate Goliath Chick-fil-A. Even the governor of Vermont has gotten involved!! Bo is a one-man screen printing operation, located in Montpelier, Vermont, who for the past ten+ years has encouraged people to “Eat More Kale” by way of his t-shirts and stickers.
Chick-fil-A is threatening to block Bo’s federal trademark application and shut him down. This is not the first time they have gone after him; in 2006, Chick-fil-A demanded he stop printing t-shirts and send them his inventory to be destroyed. Their reason for doing so is based on slogan confusion. Chick-fil-A’s slogan is “Eat Mor Chikin” and they feel that “EAT MORE KALE” will confuse their customers and take away from their profits. Lame.
All of Bo’s t-shirts are created one-at-a-time, using hand-cut stencils, H2O based black ink, and a squeegee. You can read all about it on his about me page!
Now for the giveaway! Bo is offering one of my awesome readers their very own “Eat More Kale” t-shirt. In order to qualify for this give away you must complete the mandatory entry first!
