In case there's confusion, This wouldn't mean that you will be forced to have a username (or any name) printed on the top, just that if you did want it then it'd cost an extra £4 :tup:

We're almost ready to open up the order form for the Rods 'n' Sods.

There's just one little question. How much do you want your username on there ?

It will be entirely optional on an individual basis (so don't worry, you're not forced to have them) however to add a username to a top it'll be an extra £4 charged by the printer so an extra £4 on the order. If there's hardly any call for having a username on there then I may be able to try and get them screen printed a bit cheaper.

The choices available will be "Roadrunna" or "Username" but you can pick the colour and font :D

Just getting in there before you gits witty ones do :incheek:








Sadly,

I can't seem to find anywhere to get these done :tdown:

It seems the lettering on the back for the username is too small :tdown:

Isn't it going to be a bit like those "I am the Stig" Tee shirts if there are loads of people walking round with "Roadrunna" on their front?

£4 extra seems a bit steep to me especially when if your wearing one the hoodies or t-shirts people know your a user of the site and if they want to find out your name then they can just ask? Designs do look ace though Si! :tup:

I do agree that it's expensive. Unfortunately this is what they charge for the extra text (presumably setup time etc.) and with the printing requirements needed this is the cheapest i've found the option for.

Two questions, £4 per order or shirt? How much are the shirts in the first place? .................... At the Nat's when we had the first shirts printed it was a laugh to have our handles on them, It broke the ice to put a name to a face...................... Dave.

can we leave it open as an option to the buyer ?

but i guess to have this flexibility the printer will want some form of compensation.

Personally I would be a bit apprehensive taking my T to another screen printer in case they fkd up my cool t shirt:shock:

As said before , if people are spotted wearing one the first question is....

Q. who are you ?
A. whos asking ? (in case the tax man buys a T :incheek:)

Yep, it's £4 per username so per shirt. The username is entirely optional so if someone didn't want a name on there then they wouldn't have to pay the extra £4 :tup:

Basically, I could probably get a run of screen printed ones done for a bit less but then the option of a name wouldn't be possible. These are printed direct onto the tops (similar route to the silk screening) which allows the username option to be given. To have the artwork setup costs for both printing and silk screening isn't feasible and the costs would still be higher for the username anyway lol :tdown:

is there a price list for the stuff and colors, sizes and stuff ?
Not as yet, that's the next step. If no-one wanted to pay the extra for the usernames then i'd be looking into different suppliers anyway.

As for the colour, you can have it in any colour you want as long as it's black :D :tup:

can we leave it open as an option to the buyer ?
Yep, entirely :tup: As above, i'm just gauging the interest after being made of the additional price of the name. If no-one wanted it then it'd be worth going down the slightly cheaper option of just screen printing the single design.

Based on the results so far, I think we'll be sticking with this route. The top as standard won't have a name on it but if people do want one on then it'll cost the extra £4.
