Lightbulb All-New Disdads T-shirt thread

As I mentioned in the current mother-thread, now that we've chosen a new Disdads logo, I'm working on getting new T-shirts printed as soon as possible.

As I explained, I'm planning on getting this first batch of shirts screen-printed, which helps keep our per-shirt cost down, and (because it's a service that is included with the preparation of the printing screen) it gets us the services of a graphic artist for free to "clean up" the logo image (which we can then use on other Dis Dads Schwag).

The only real downside to this option is that I need to place an order for a minimum of 25 shirts, and pay for them upfront. I'm OK with fronting this cost, but I want to make sure that people buy what I order. I know that I could collect orders first, but doing that might preclude me from getting the printing done in time for the holiday season (and people's upcoming Disney trips).

So, please post here if you're interested in a new Dis Dads t-shirt and (this is important) what size you'd like.

The plan for the design is to print red t-shirts (so that we can use two colors when printing the logo, instead of three). A large, circular, logo would appear on the front, and the text of a MANLAW would appear on the back (see poll at Disdads.com, choosing which MANLAW to print).

Aaron, do we have an idea how the shirts run in size? Sometimes an XL is closer to a L.

I sent an inquiry to my contact, should hear back tomorrow. I would work on the assumption until we hear differently that they run a bit small, as that seems to be the default these days.

Looks like I can ship to Canada for an extra $6.
Prices for this first run are a bit higher than I would prefer, but the per-shirt cost doesn't drop until we order 60.

OK, count me in.

Only 60 - there are almost 700 of us... we can do it.

I like the idea of

"Off topic since... " on the back

or something like....

"Join us at DISDads.com to find out the REAL meaning of Peanut Butter and Beverly"

And just a thought - what if we went with a BLACK shirt...

Still have to do only 1 stencil for the screen print - but it would be for the RED colour.

I am just thinking of the washing of it - and trying to explain to my wife why all the clothes turned pink, and then the red fades into a manly DISdad's pink...

I considered a black shirt, and it's a possibility. My experience, though, is that printing the yellow and red right next to each other could be problematic. If the screens aren't aligned perfectly we'd end up with an orange "halo" around the letters. So I've been planning a red shirt with black and yellow printing.

Don't worry, once we have this first set done, we'll have a professional-quality graphic that we can put on all kinds of shirts, mugs, bags, etc.

I'm definitely interested. Normally I'd wear a Large, unless their sizes run small for some reason.
