    Re: EC Merchandise

    I might buy something. I can't say how much I'd wear it, but I think it would be fun to have.

    I have to say, this would be my first time buying website merchandise...

    I really like the logo at the top-left of the forum without the door. I think it would look good around the left-chest area.

    Re: EC Merchandise

    Actually, I thought of making a t-shirt for myself with EC on it while ago when Fred came up with the idea of making a magazine. (I thought of doing a page of "make your own EC tee")

    I would love to buy one:slight_smile:

    Re: EC Merchandise

    Seth has given me the go-ahead to do this, and sent me a high resolution copy of the logo at the top left. So it WILL happen! :slight_smile:

    The next stage is for me to speak to the boss on Tuesday and find out what he can help us do, what garments are available through the usual suppliers and what the embroidered cost would be etc. It is likely to be things like t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies, and not underwear or wristbands etc. It will probably take a few days to sort out the pricing.

    JubMedia would prefer us to sell the items at cost as they do not need the money from any profit. So if we do make a small profit out of this, it will probably go to Becky to help with her postage cost of sending PFLAG materials out to members.

    So I should have more information by the end of next week.

    Ooh, does it come with the hot guy?


    That's wonderful Paul. And embroidered too. Silk-screening is alright but an embroidered logo really adds a touch of class to it.

    Re: EC Merchandise

    Most of the customised stuff we do is school uniform with school badges or logos, and this needs to be embroidered for durability. So it is likely that we will be able to get a good price on embroidery from one of the regular suppliers.

    I don't know if we can get vests like davo-man's photo but I'll ask. We would be able to get polo shirts.

    Re: EC Merchandise

    I love the idea of EC clothing/jewelry/whatever else you can attach the logo to! As a budget friendly suggestion (for the poor students like me out there :grin:)...

    What about posting a pdf or similar file with logos, that people can print off themselves on iron transfer paper or rub on transfer paper? You can get it at any craft store (like Michaels for about $10 for a whole package for the NA'ers here). All you do is print it off using any (usually inkjet, but check the manufacturer) printer, and voila! You can now have EC-anything-you-can-iron-rub-or-wet! (Depending on what kind of transfer you use)

    Imagine it: EC tee shirts, canvass shoes, hoodies, backpacks, mugs, mirrors, scrapbookpaper...the only limit is you imagination...and all really cheap! (And individually designed, so sizing guesswork). If the images can be used this way under the copyright, and the lack of funds generated isn't an issue, this may just be another suggestion (I hear the crafters cringing at iron-on transfers now...Really, they aren't all that bad!!)

    EDIT: but I still want to buy everything!!!

    Re: EC Merchandise

    The range of products we can get through my work is quite limited unfortunately. Because we deal with suppliers of embroided schoolwear we are looking at the casual end of that range, which means they can only offer polo shorts, sweatshirts and fleeces. No hoodies, no t-shirts, no vests etc.

    The size range covers 34" to 50" chest and prices are good at about £5 (US $10) for a polo shirt and £10 (US $20) for a fleece. There is a one-off setup charge of £50 (US $100) which I would have to allow for, plus their delivery charge and postage to buyers. They have a minimum order level of 12 items but they can be a mix of types, sizes, colours etc, so it would allow me to order each time we get 12 or more items ordered.

    The limited range is the main problem though, so I am looking at some other suppliers to see what they can offer, either to supply everything or to fill the gaps. I am aiming for embroidered rather than printed because we want good quality merchandise for EC! Hopefully I will know more by the end of the week.
