    What about sites like cafepress, where they press shirts per order?

    I polled option 1 because I like it the most, but I would wear the other one. I'm concerned that delivery to Australia won't happen, like the last time. Is this a concern that can be easily remedied, Phrost?

    I want that shirt.

    I'm down for either, slightly partial to the first one. I like the second one, but not sure how nice it would look as a final print.

    I'll have to calculate shipping, but we'll do AUS/UK/pretty much anywhere short of outer goatfuckistan.

    Already explored that option. Their selection sucks, their margins suck ($2 profit per shirt, and that's only if you charge a ton for each), and the design options are limited.

    We'll check them out. The problem with those sort of services (CafePress, Zazzle, etc.) is that they take a HUGE slice off the shirt... we're talking $19 out of $25 per shirt, unless it's just a shitty white t-shirt with some words in black printed on it. And part of the reason for doing the shirts ourselves, despite the massive pain in the ass it is for us, is to use those funds for site upgrades and other things.

    For example, off the top of my head I can think of $500 worth of crap I need to buy just to get some of the functionality needed to keep the site growing. And another $2k to hire a developer to unfuxxor our wiki situation.

    That's just the reality of how things operate. The economy absolutely wrecked the advertising market, so we're trying to offer you guys awesome stuff instead of spamming you with pop-ups and push-downs and all sorts of other bullshit that would annoy you every time you visited the site.

    Edit: yeah, their plain white t-shirts start at $18, before designs and shipping. I'd rather keep the total cost of the shirt, prior to shipping at $20.

    Totally understand, Phrost. Just throwing it out there if you needed another 'hassle free' type of option.

    Though it requires some initial investment, getting shirts printed by a local printer/screen printing shop is the better way to go. You can order blank shirts cheaper, have them printed and sell them with a tremendously larger markup. Do you have a print shop near you that can do t-shirts?

    I love the $*@^STRONG one: too many people with bicycles here

    We've got a supplier halfway across the country we've worked with before, and they've got all our old designs saved. We could probably shave off a dollar or two doing it locally, but this is something I generally manage myself, and I always have about 459&3/4 projects going on at any given time and so simplicity is usually my go-to, except in cases where it's just too damn expensive.
