Hi Tahir - Just wondering, will the t-shirts be white or are you going to use other colour(s). When a logo gets sorted out for the print run is a there a minimum amount - say 50?

One thing I do note with pier32 is that when you look for detail in their pricing on the web site it is lacking.

For example can you mix sizes and qualify for the same unit price.

Can't speak for that particular company, Jema.

I know when ordering a batch you can mix the sizes at no additional cost, as they have plenty of stock and it is going on the actual print quantity not the item. We've done this sort of thing before. This may vary I guess if ordering lots of xxxx-large or whatever they come in.

that is good to know. As this would entail some pretty heavy outlay of money.

What about if we can order 50, cost it, what about p&p each item. When you want the money mines on it's way (well when I get an address to send it).

Well we will need the final logo first, and to set up some means of payment, maybe with paypal.

But as to quantity. Looking at Pier52 you get sensible discounts at the 100 level, and I think I'd be prepared to gamble on that

If you are setting up a paypal account, for site payments I would do it now, as it takes a bit of time getting the authorisation code through.

Good point, though as we do not have a downsizer bank account, it is perhaps a moot issue I do have a personal paypal account.

If we could get someone with the requisite design skills to do a funny cartoon type logo, I'd have a few. If we charged a small profit we could use the money to buy seeds or tubers, chicks, whatever, to give back to those people who bought them. If enough people bought then we'd get bulk discounts and buy enough goodies to stash them away and hand out as prizes to quizzes, or best voted articles, or some such.

This is a non profit site, and you can rest assured that moneys coming in, are being accounted for diligently, with ideas afoot as to how that money can go back out. If we make money off t-shirts it will be used in a way consistant with the site ethos.

I am just a bit touchy, we want to do things and this involves money coming in and out, and I worry about what poeple percieve in this regard.
