Selling Box Shirts...

Greetings from Crazytrain CrossFit! I'm not sure which forum is appropriate for it but could we create a subsection where Affiliates could sell their Logo shirts? We are looking to create a wall of shirts in frames on our Box wall and I'd love to be able to locate them easily. Plus, I think it could be a great way to boost sales and exposure for our boxes... Of course, anyone who wants to send us one would be appreciated. Utmost thanks...

Re: Selling Box Shirts...

I'm guessing that response is associated with profiteering... In that case, could we post our affiliate designed shirts in hopes of trading with other boxes? I don't want to overstep boundaries hence the questioning first...

Re: Selling Box Shirts...

My response (mind you...it's an unofficial one...I have no authority here), was based really on two things:

1) Profiteering, as you guessed; and,
2) Doubtful that the mods would create a subsection for this sort of thing. I can't even remember the last time that a subsection was created. There are almost certainly other higher-priority subtopics that should have their own little section but probably never will.

Your best bet is probably to just get a thread going (perhaps this one) for trading box shirts, and then just see if the thread can sustain itself through interest.

Re: Selling Box Shirts...

John,

Check out our Facebook or Instagram account and find one of our shirts you like. Email me your size and email address to camelcitycrossfit@gmail.com and I'll send you a shirt. We are collecting them at our box and have found that our members like it and often buy additional shirts from the boxes we have visited. We have also had luck with people from boxes across the U.S. buying our shirts or hats. Good luck on your search for cool shirts.

Well, that's cause you named your gym after cigarettes-which is pretty sweet

Or after toe-to-bar, which would still be a pretty sweet name.

Re: Selling Box Shirts...

Thanks Marshall and Dave. Our Box name which is the city's nickname has worked out well for us so far. Feel free to drop in if you are ever out our way.

No, I meant Camel City is the nickname for Winston-Salem, where the gym is located.
