Batfish Volunteer T-shirts
« on: April 18, 2008, 02:48:56 PM »
I am thinking about doing another round of Batfish volunteer shirts.  This poll, which runs for 2 weeks) is to decide on what color everyone would like to have.  Yes, if you want to order one...I'll ship one to you.  FYI - I get a price break after 25 shirts.  So if you are interested, please vote your favorite color choice, then email me at ussbatfish@yahoo.com with how many you want and the sizes.  The option that has the highest votes wins.

Thanks for your support

I have posted pictures previously under the Drum Section > Volunteer shirts.  Look for my post and view the images there.

The front has "U.S.S. Batfish SS 310 Relief Crew"

The back has a sub graphic, a reference to War Memorial Park and the website address.

Rick - they are the same ones we wear while we are down there...FYI

OK, it seems that we'll be going with the tan shirt with black lettering.  I talked to others at the park yesterday and they wanted something like that.  Apparently the red ones attract wasps...and the black ones attract the heat.  So tan w/ black it is.

I'd like to turn in the order on May 5th.  Please let me know if you'd like one...and mailing it to you IS an option.

Thanks!

Mark

Mark S.; Travis; Rick; and anyone else...

FYI - I don't know how much this will cost.  It will depend on the number of shirts (price break at 25).  It will range from about $12/shirt ($9/shirt if we get the price break).

All I need by the 5th is just who wants one (or more) and what size(s) you want.  I'll then turn this into the printer and then I'll pay for the bill when I get the shirts.  My next time down after than will be the 17th (which I should have the shirts with me).  At that point you can pay me back.

I think Rick is working on a special deal concerning the shirts and I'll work out those details with him.

So, just to recap...I only need quantity and sizes right now.  Pay after May 17th as you can.

Thanks for your interest.

Mark,

I'd like to order an XXL extra fat.  Let me know if they cost extra, as sometimes anything above XL costs a dollar or two more.  Can I send you a money order when the shirts are ready?  And you could let me know how much for shipping.

By the way, I was going to vote for a navy blue shirt with white or gold lettering.  :)

Here is the price quote back from my printer:

Quote
Yes, the price break is at 25 qty.  I’m pricing 20 qty. and 25 qty. tan shirts with a one color front and a one color back imprint:

12 – 23 qty.:  $6.65 and a $20 set-up plus 8.517% for tax
24 - 47 qty.:  $5.95 and a $20 set-Up…plus 8.517% for tax

When you order 48 qty., there are no set-up charges;  Set-ups are $10 per color/per side

I doubt we'll get 48...so assume an average of $6...then I'll add the $20 set up fee + tax and then divide by the number of shirts to get the final "per shirt" cost.  For those wanting them mailed, add about $3 to that.

Order gets turned in on May 5th.  Tan shirts, black text/graphic.  I need quantity and size by then.

Thanks,

Mark A.

you mean XXL?  I'm not sure...maybe a dollar or two.  I didn't ask for the cost, but I think it's minimal.
