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.
