I agree on neutral colors as well. If you look in my closet you will find most of my t shirts are gray. There are some other colors in there but they do not get worn nearly as much. Tan or khaki works for me as well. Through the t shirt vendor I think I am allowed to choose 3 colors when ordering. Right now I am not sure what the 3rd color would be unless it is a darker, charcoal shade of gray.

As it stands right now I am waiting to hear back from the vendor regarding the quality of the logo. Their initial response was that the logo was of low resolution and may make for poor quality printing on the shirts. I realized I had sent them the wrong file so I quickly sent them the right one and I hope that it is higher. Bobby says it is the one they would most likely use in production anyway. I hope to hear something from them tomorrow.

The t shirt vendor also let me in on a pricing range. If I order at a minimum, 15 shirts, the price would be $12.25 per shirt. So having said that, in order to get pricing lower I need to order no less than 25 shirts. 25 shirts will get pricing around $10 per shirt which is my maximum per shirt cost. That doesn't mean I will not order them if I do not get 25 orders it just means the price will be higher than $10 per shirt. What I may do is go ahead and order a higher number of shirts and hope that they sell over time. This way it will keep the cost down and possibly help the sale of these shirts.

Now, I may go ahead and make a single shirt order to proof out the quality of these shirts if I can. I certainly don't want any surprises when these shirts come in.

However, if the vendor can guarantee me these shirts will look great I will go ahead and start an order thread no later than next Monday. David plans to make it a forum announcement as well. Most likely due to time restraints I will only hold the order for a week for the first order of shirts. My reason for this is so that I can have what I need for the Charlotte dinner/meet on February 25th.

Maybe I'm crazy but what about putting the

"North Carolina
FJ Cruisers"

on the front breast and putting the logo on the back? I think that would look better IMO, just my $0.02.

Cheers,
Nick

I am definitely in for a shirt. Jami do you know if these shirts will be tagless? I'ld personally have no problem paying the $12 something for a good quality t-shirt.

Poll has been deleted. I did so because I don't think it is going to sway the final decision one way or the other.

I have tossed around the idea of doing a front and back layout and since it has come up in this thread I am giving it a chance. It will raise the shirt pricing by a dollar or two but I don't think that is too bad considering what we are looking at here. Also, end pricing depends on how many shirts we get ordered.

Let me know what you think on the front layout and how you would like to see it.
I can change the text coloring and outline color or remove the outline. However, I am limited on font styles at least with the vendors software. They may have other font styles available.

I want to offer the shirts in a light gray and khaki and possibly a third color if desired but that is all I can do without a price increase.

On the hanes color chart these are listed as Sand and Light Steel.

I love the back of the shirt! This is what I was thinking for the front...once again, just my opinion.

For a third color, what about hunter green or a variation of hunter green?

Love the shirt! I'd be in for 2 shirts (XXL) in 2 different colors. I like the name on the front, logo on the back concept as well.

YES, but perhaps closer to an Toyota Army Green. Very Happy

Ok, just got word from the t-shirt vendor. We are good to go on the logo.
It was brought to my attention that if we go with a single color text on the front of the shirt it will save anywhere from $1.25 to $1.75 per shirt depending on quantity ordered. Also, it was suggested to use this style font, which I like OK, and keep the lettering centered on the front of the shirt.

The back of the shirt will contain 4 colors, black, yellow, white, and whatever color the FJ is. I assume it is off white or tan but cant really tell.

To address your thoughts on a dark green shirt David & Brian, my concern with a darker shirt would be how well the logo and text shows on a darker shirt. We may need to keep to the lighter side. Take a look at the color chart and see what you think.

Here is the added text styling that was suggested. I personally like and hope you guys like it as well.

I still like the smaller logo at the breast personally, but that font is okay with me. Was there any reason suggested as to why the large logo should be centered?

sun cruiser 6.....i agree, i think the grey (or tan) would be best for the text to be easily read (our office skimped once b/c dark purple was on sale and you get a headache reading the print)

No reasoning other than they felt it was more attractive than positioning it to the left and making it smaller. I guess we all hove our opinions on styling.

I am good with tan, personally not a fan of gray t-shirts at all. So if you are able to offer 2 choices, Tan would be my choice of the 2.

I have one last frontal layout for you guys to see.
To each his own I suppose. I do like it but I am like that, I like things done differently, outside the norm I guess.

What I need to know from everyone here is which layout they like best. Layout number 1 or layout number 2. I do not mean to be pushy at all about these shirts but if I can't get more interest than what we have here then these shirts may not be produced. It will not be cost effective to order just 10-15 shirts.

I was informed earlier today that I could only do one color of t shirt and keep the cost of each shirt within reason. I can do multiple t shirt colors but each shirt will be at full price up to about 12 shirts then the price starts dropping. This was a disappointment for me but apparently I misunderstood the information I had been given.

The figures below are based on a 25 shirt minimum order.
Hanes Beefy T's with logo on the back and text on front.
(color)
Sand....25 @ $12 per shirt
Light Steel....25 @ $11 per shirt

For whatever reason the sand colored shirts cost more. I did not initially realize they only had 4 colors of t shirt that did not have a cost premium.

Now for the bad news, I suggest we go with one or the other color to
keep the cost of these shirts down. I priced 15 of the sand color
shirts and they would be in the $17-$18 range so whatever we do we need
to go with one color or we need to have two 25 shirt orders of gray and
tan in order to have color choices.

I don't mind doing this for our group but it seems with each day that passes something new comes up with these shirts.

Layout #1


Layout #2

Which of the 2 front text layouts do you like best David?

As for shirt color I am leaning more towards sand myself.

I like layout #1 the best. I would buy one of each color offered in this layout. If there is to be only one color my vote would be for the sand color.
