Carverfest 2016 Shirts

Post by frenchguy » Wed May 11, 2016 5:18 pm

I will be handling the shirts for CF this year! :-s This year we will be offering T-shirts in assorted colors as well! I would also like to gauge interest in polo & sweatshirts! :-k I will be calling the screen printer tomorrow & getting some prices on all 3 shirts & the size ranges! I will be narrowing it down to about 12 colors or so, so it isnt too big of a pain in the ass!! :rolleyes: :lol: I also would like to have something put on the shirts in memory of our TNRabbit! I also will be charging a small surcharge on each shirt of like a few dollars to help cover the cost of of buying a shirt for Garys Girlfriend Cindy King, His sister Betty Gore Ingram & both of Garys sons! I think it would be a nice gesture for us to show how much we cared & miss Gary & would be a nice remembrance for them as well! I dont think a few bucks on each shirt order is going to break any of us & it is the right thing to do! 8) I will post more on this after I talk to the screen printer tomorrow but please start thinking about what you may want as far as what kind of shirt(s) & colors! once we get rolling on this I will send paypal invoices to all who order so you can pay for your shirts(s).
Any ideas what we would want to put on the shirts & where we would want it on the shirts as far as a memorial for Gary would be welcome!! Thanks & lets get started planning our yearly trip up the Mountain to enjoy what we all have in common! All things Carver, Friends, Family & Fun!! =D> \:D/

Great, great deal Al. Thanks for handling!

As far as the memorial...what about a sleeve circle looking thing. TNRabbit over the top. Gary Gore around the bottom and his years though the middle. Nothing else really needs to be said I don't think.

I'm all in on the ones for the family too. We'd have to have a count of people or shirt numbers to figure out a divide of the cost. So we could guess up front, but might need a final tally to finish it off too.

I do like the thought of a sweatshirt this year. The printers will do about whatever usually...at some cost. But some may allow you to source elsewhere and some may want it internal so they make the markup possible on that part too. You may have to price around a bit in other
words. I know our stations shirts have pretty much always been done locally, so I'd see that as they've never found a way to do it good on the net with somebody...but I don't know any details. Too far from my normal concerns.

Thanks for looking into this!

Mark, that is a good idea for the sleeve like you said! :-k as far as the sweatshirts & polo shirts I will talk with the screen printer in Sylva NC as that is who Doug used & they have the artwork for the Carver logo already so may as well go with them then! that way they are made there & I dont have to haul them all to the fest as space is usually at a premium in my truck!! 8)

I am thinking of a letter "C" on the sleeve on the sleeve of the shirt with TNRabbit inside the letter C with the name Gary Gore along the top of the letter C & also 1961 - 2015 along the bottom of the letter "C" ! :-k Let me know what all you guys & gals think if that would be a good logo for a memorial to Gary! If you have any other ideas you feel would be better please speak up!! 8)

I love the idea of honoring Gary. I am good with whatever design is chosen. I was thinking of a simple thing on the sleeve like RIP Rabbit with 1961-2016 directly beneath.

I'd be interested in a shirt and possibly a sweatshirt if you'd be willing to ship them to me? I'd also like to pay for an extra shirt for one of Gary's family members, thanks.

Have any chance to find out anything Al?

I was remembering a cheap sweatshirt I got a work a number of years ago where they had a thin iron on thing done. It didn't last for nothing in the wash and didn't look that good new either. Which made me think that they have also sometimes done the station logo sewn in, embroidery multicolor thing. So I just went back and asked what that stuff costs.

The answer was as cheap as about $5 each with a setup charge of $75-80 or so. So if you were to do a front pocket and side sleeve on one side, then IF that kind of deal could be found it'd be the shirt cost plus another $12-15 or so when you split the setup charge across many shirts. Now again, that's multicolor thread sewn logo. He pointed to a nice polo shirt with a nice logo on the front only and said it was like $28. If you have a pocket logo and a sleeve on one side, I don't know if that's one setup charge or two... Wonder what one color versus multiple means to cost?

Off hand, I don't recall what has been done in the past. I always have had enough going on that I haven't had the time to think too much about what was done. Thanks should go to everybody that's ever worked on getting shirts done! It's easy to say I'll take one and to pay...figuring it all out and getting them to people takes some effort. So thanks to those that have done this for everyone...and to you Al, for working on it this year!

Those number aren't the cheapest T-shirt numbers, but if it's nice and classy, I wouldn't mind a $35-40 sweatshirt if that's the way were leaning this year. Though I could probably wear a polo shirt as much or more. Don't know how others would feel, but thought I'd mention what I was told. Thinking out loud...

Markie haven't had a chance to post a update, but she did say t-shirts $10.50 for 3 areas of print. Sweatshirt would be $20 for 2 areas of print & embroidered polo would be $25. I will post color options soon
