Forum t-shirts? a fund raising idea

No, not "Greenbat you useless bastard" comments. Instead, any helpful suggestions, bugs, ideas etc. I have very little (i.e, none) experience with forum running, so help is very much appreciated

Forum t-shirts? a fund raising idea

Unread post by triumph5ta » Wed Mar 04, 2009 10:48 pm

A fund raising idea, comments welcome.

Using CafePress.co.uk to set up an online "shop".
T shirts would simply feature your choice of classic bike logo, Triumph, BSA whatever but with www.classicbikeforum.co.uk beneath or on the back or whatever.
This involves no outlay and no holding of stock. CafePress.co.uk hold all the t-shirts and print them as required.
Maybe we could make 4 of 5 quid on each one?

I like the idea of T-Shirts, but I'd like to see our own design rather than use a 'stock' image.
I also think we're a bit premature - we'll need more than 125 members before it'll be worthwhile.

It'd be nice to see some of our 'arty' types come up with some designs though.

I like the idea but, only thing with cafepress is that despite having a 'UK Shop' they ship from the USA - another forum I use uses them for stuff and quite a few people have been hit with customs charges plus the post office charge for collecting the charge..! is there a real UK based supplier that does a similar deal?
