2k19 Shirts
« on: June 24, 2019, 09:55:13 AM »
Quick informal poll on who all is interested in shirts this year, and if there are any ideas on the theme you.  Seems like GoT or Marvel would be timely. 

EDIT:

Due to the extra colors on the shirts, they are more expensive this year, but I think will be worth it. 

My cost (w/ tax built in) per shirt will be:
M/S = $17
L/XL = $19
XXL+ = $21

If it is all the same to you guys, let's just make it $20 / shirt.  Especially since I will make some extras I will lose money on this, but it is a labor of love, so that's fine. 

I will get a few extra shirts (probably mostly L & XL) for those that missed ordering, but I plan on giving them numbers on Monday. 

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
Either:
(A) ApplePay me:
 - with a a note saying how many shirts you want and what size. 
 - $20 * how many shirts you want
 - If you have my cell number, and use ApplePay this is my preferred method, but really does not matter. 

(B) Paypal me:
 - with a a note saying how many shirts you want and what size. 
 - $20 * how many shirts you want
 - to kpdezend either gmail or hotmail should both go to the same PayPal. 
 - Please please please PayPal as a gift and not for merchandise as PayPal will take something like 3% of the money (again, I'm losing money on this as it is). 

(C) If you can't spare the cash, email me and tug on my heart strings. 
(Or if you really want several and cannot float the cash, let me know also.).

(D) If you will not be at DragonCon this year and still want a shirt, let me know and I can mail it to you.  My guess is $3 or so per shirt. 

I'll try to have some fancy booze and maybe even a (small) room party for people who get a shirt to come and pick them up. 

It's worth noting that part of my cost factors in ordering 30 shirts.  If I end up with only 15 shirts, I will not raise the price on people, but my cost per shirt goes up (setup of $160 for setting up this many inks alone)... so not to cause myself too much pain, but if people can only pay $15 or 2x$30, that could still be less painful on my wallet than people not ordering. 

Thanks,

Trathor

Could we do Front/Back t-shirts?

Front "What do you get when you play the Game of DragonCon?" + picture

Back "80,000 best friends, lots of pie and getting lost at 4am while looking for the drum circle."
 
Not sure what to do for the picture yet. First idea was like a fantasy type version of a map of dragoncon. Its not an exact quote but the reference is similar enough? I could probably draw something up if we wanted to do the map. I'll keep thinking of ideas.


 Edit:
Cant think of anything funny to put instead of " you win or you die"  - but im at work so Im distracted - this is the quote im playing off of:

"When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground"

Edit 2:

"Thats what we do. We drink and talk about DragonCon." + a picture of Tyrion drinking? Maybe find a way to insert a rum bucket instead of a cup?

(A play on the "Thats what i do." I drink and I know things."

I like this. 

Yes, we can do front and back shirts, it just get's more expensive.  The biggest problem is there is an overhead cost of... $40 I think for each image, so if there are 20 shirts (roughly what there was last year) then it's an extra $2 overhead + the price per shirt, which I think was around $2. 

That means plus tax printing front and back adds about $5.  Honestly, not that bad, but I also don't want people not getting a shirt because of the price difference.

What I would like is the Throne with someone sitting in it with a large tankard in hand, and a gathering of 4-6 other people around the throne, also drinking and happy...

I could probably use a new DCon Forums shirt.
And, I dig this current idea.

The cost would be $15 - $20, I'm assuming?

Yeah, something like that.  I try to keep the number of inks down to keep cost down.

I am tempted to also turn this into a DCF challenge coin.
