Well, yeah... except, for the original shirt should've read "iPooed"...

So, Adam, at least you can take solace in the fact that you're both clever AND a good speller...

On the shirt front, 'cause a few people have PM'd me, just wanted to let y'all know:

If we have enough people interested in an iPood shirt, we can get them for around $5.00 each. However, we would only get that price if we ordered 350-400 of them. That's nearly $2,000 in printing costs, so there'd have to be a collection for most of it, because sadly I don't have that kind of cash to front.

Alternatively, a much smaller order could be placed, but then they'll be $20-25 per shirt. When I'd mentioned having one for myself, that shirt would probably cost me $35-40 for a single printing, even with the mate-rates I'd get from my friends in the biz. In that situation, we might as well do a print-on-demand ala CustomInk or CafePress... I'm not sure on an order of less than 100 that I could beat the prices of those sites by much, even with my friends giving me deals, and going through a conventional vendor would still involve an up-front outlay.

The best scenario is that my most reliable contacts come back to me and say there's no issue with selling them. Then, an order could be placed for a large quantity and they could be posted for sale @ $5.00 on a site somewhere. I'm sure there're loads of CFers who'd buy them at that price, and I could work out a payment plan with the vendor knowing the whole order would sell in a reasonable timeframe.

Again, this last bit about selling is up to Adam, it's his IP.

Frank, if you want to sell them you have my permission to have at it! My return would be seeing videos of some folks crushing wods in it!

Re: A little crossfit humor...

OK, Ladies and Gentlemen, here's the skinny:

I'm still waiting to hear back from two more printers, otherwise here's the best deal (which, while I found it through one of my friends, isn't good because I'm getting a mate-rate, these are their regular prices):

With an order of 12 or more shirts (we currently have 11 requests, counting two for me and two for Sean), we can get them for about $7.50 each. Less than that, they'll be about $19 each. There are price breaks every dozen after that, but they're not as significant. The least they'd be is about $6.80.

The total for an order of 12 is about $90.00. Shipping would be free.

In order to get that price, we'd have to buy them all at once, and that means getting a collection together. I'm looking into that now, perhaps some kind of paypal setup into which we all deposit, but only an agent of the company can withdraw from? Don't get me wrong, I know I'm trustworthy, but, to all of you, I'm a bloke on the net you haven't met, so I'm trying to be as pragmatic as possible and find a method which is un-rip-off-able, so everyone feels secure in chipping in.

Alternatively, I can format the artwork as the vendor requires, post it here, and you cal all go to the vendor's website (WFS) individually and get a shirt printed. On small orders, shipping is still free. However, they're more expensive; you can get one for $12.95, but the shirt quality doesn't look too good. You can get a better quality shirt, but it'll be $19 or more, depending on what you select.

Like I said, I might still be able to beat this deal, but whatever I can come up with, the prices won't get any better unless we find an acceptable way to pass the collection plate.

Any thoughts?

Cheers,
FD
