Title: t-Shirt Anyone?
Post by: Skee on April 16, 2014, 10:27:42 PM
Wondering if there is enough interest to do a t-shirt?  I would need a minimum of 20 to 30 orders to make it affordable.  Cost estimate includes mailing it to your house.  A black 50/50 blend short sleeve shirt would cost $21 (30 shirts) to $24 (20 shirts).  A black cool-n-dry poly short sleeve shirt would run $27 (30 shirts) to $30 (20 shirts). [40 shirts brings the cost down another $2.]  That's at cost.  This is a 4 color screen print, not a vinyl iron-on.  Any money over goes in the parking lot beer kitty, where else!

To do this, I would need orders and payment ahead of time.  One run, one fixed setup cost.

I have zero% experience doing this.  Feel free if you have a graphic you want to post up for consideration or if you know a t-shirt vendor with better pricing.  No offense taken.

Since we'll be staying just off the Parkway, how about something based on this comical Blue Ridge Parkway roadsign?

I decided to go with vinyl print since there was not enough interest to do a screen job.  Advantage of vinyl is there are no setup costs.  Plus you can choose any shirt you like, and they take care of the ordering and mailing. 

So I ordered one to see what the quality was like and took it out on a test ride.  A typical CNJ route down Bridgeton Hill across the river at Milford – anyone hear from Marty lately – then onto Shades of Death road and down to Hot Dog Johnny’s (http://www.hotdogjohnny.com/shop/).  The place was packed.  I’m happy to report the shirt rides well and cleans up nicely from mustard relish.

I will post a link on both sites as soon as I confirm final ordering information.  I’m also inquiring about a group discount.  Lead time is 2 weeks with free shipping and mine arrived earlier than promised.  Less than 37 days to go.

A bit about the design.  I wanted a shirt that wasn’t organization specific yet drew on the legacy of STN.  While it doesn’t say who or where, it will start a converstation.  Hope you STOners like it
