UGP T-shirts
« on: May 2, 2007, 06:02 PM »
Hope this wasn't out of line, but I set up a cafepress shop for the UGP. I've set all products at base price so I'm not making a dime off of it.  I thought those attending and/or manning the booth might like to order a shirt to wear with the logo and website address on it.

Here's the link:

I'm also thinking it might be cool if we have some nice pictures after the con to do a calendar, mousepads, commemoritive T, etc.

Anyhow, let me know what you think.

Personally, I think this is awesome. I was thinking of mentioning something like this, and I'm glad you did this.

Just wondering, is there any way to get other colors - perhaps a blue shirt with white lettering or something?

OMG, count me in for one of those!  We can get one even if we're not attending, or no?

I think that conveys my thoughts on this very nicely!

Awesome, I'll put it up on the front page for everyone to have fun with  8)

Unfortunately, according to their site anything that is white in the image is going to be the color of the shirt. But I'll look into what I might be able to do. I saw they have black shirts now that have a different set up so maybe white will work on those.

I've never bought anything through Cafe Press before so if anyone has experience with them feel free to chime in. I did see a tote bag someone had done a couple years back and I thought the quality was acceptable.

OMG, count me in for one of those!  We can get one even if we're not attending, or no?

Definitely anyone can order! I know I'm getting one for myself.  ;D

They have a lot more apparel and other products too. It doesn't cost anything to add them so if there's something someone wants let me know and when I have time I'll add it. I just tried to cover the basics in case anyone wanted to try to get something in time for C4.

I'm thinking a set of "vacation" postcards from Judde Lulos would be neat. 8)

Btw, here's a larger view of the image:


I think the size on the shirt will be like 10" x 3"

I am definately ordering one. I too wish they had a baseball cap. Too bad we can't sell these at the convention.

Well I just found out I'm in the same boat as Daigo No CIV for me. Because of our move, and its a few days before our friend graduates from the Airforce academy, we simply have too much on our plate so we can't make it. But I will definately be buying a shirt to put in My Starwars room in our new house  :)

Ok, I've updated with colored shirts for men, women, and kids(figured out how to make that work); three types of cap; stickers; and mugs. Hope these all work out!

After the show, if anyone would like to donate some high resolution pictures I'd be happy to do up more stuff for this.

THat stuff is so cool.  I haven't look closely at ordering.... what kind of turn around do we have on this?  Could we have a handful of items made for give-aways??

According to their site, except for the colored shirts, everything ships "in 2 business days". The colored shirts say "minimum 5 days" but they also say they "cannot guarantee delivery time for [beta] dark shirts."  Guess the process for those takes longer...

After that it would depend on which shipping method you choose.

I'm really curious how these are going to come out! I'm not going to be able to make an order right away so if anyone else does please let us know what you think of what you get.  :)
