ARC Cancer support shirts

75 posts in this topic

Time to pull the trigger.

Someone please sticky this post.

Let the shoosting begin..........

This has only been tested to the point of the cart. If anyone has any trouble please post it in this thread and get a screenshot if you can.

ARC Shirt Store

Some destructions for those that would like to customize their shirt(s). If you build a custom shirt there will be the ability to change the shirt product to a non standard shirt for this campaign and will not be limited to the chosen colors.

Please follow the color choices that have been decided upon. The only logos approved by Steve at this point are the ones provided. You can also choose from some stock art the vendor has available. Please do not mix those art files with the two ARC logos. You are welcome to build shirts using the stock art if you like but please don't use the ARC logos with them.

I will be keeping a close eye on both this thread and the site to make sure things are going as planned.

Thanks,

Follow the link above and click on the "build your own" Then refer to these pics.

Looks like you need to have an account and be logged in to be able to follow those steps you posted. So people might want to do that first if they want to customize their products

Thanks for the info.

I did not know that as I had to make an account to put it together.

Could someone let me know if this is the case to purchase the ready made products?

Thanks

I just placed my order. Part of the checkout process gave me a username and password to view my order, which I assume would allow you to also do a custom shirt.

Placed my order, too!!! Go Team Bamford!!!

Not a fan of the username/password, though. Especially lame passwords...

I'm definitely going to be in for this. I showed it to the family and asked them get me a couple shirts for Christmas, and they were enthusiastic about getting to support the cause as well.

This is a possibility for another logo along the same lines as what is on the T-shirts, nothing is definite as we as Mr. Lombard referred to us as "Team Bamford" will have to talk to the vendors who will be making the shirts, etc.. As requested by Steve B. (Da' Boss) from whom I got the OK to post this image to see what ARC thinks of it. If enough of the members like it we will try to add it to the project. However it must be noted that with 3 additional colors the cost per unit will be increased; also some other changes may be made so this may not be the final product.

Yes....I do feel that everyone should see Clif's artwork.....if for no other reason.....it does look good. But I let all of you decide what you want and also what is possible.....it could very well be this artwork is impractical to produce.

Clif, that looks very, very good -I'd really like one of these. If it was a case of paying a premium for the extra colours, IMO it would be worth it. Indeed, I'd go for this in addition to the standard/custom pink & black job. You can never have too many tee-shirts!

Apparently there are some tricky aspects with producing a multi-colored shaded piece of artwork.

So I think it is best we go with what we've got....but Clif's artwork does look pretty cool.

The trickiness is in the ability to scale it up and down without pixelation.

Clif and I are working together to make this graphic into a vector. Once it's a vector, there are many more options as far as products. Clif has some great ideas for the next couple of projects that I think all will enjoy.

The vendor we're using uses a full color process so the cost to print that logo versus any other is the same.

We're testing the waters so to speak with the current products and have more stuff coming. Please don't let the fact that more stuff is coming down the road keep you from participating in the current campaign.

It's all for a good cause and we are looking at this as an ongoing thing rather than a one and done.

By all means do not hesitate as the next projects "Team Bamford" (and that's not official :woot.gif: ) as we have been tagged; are going to do are just that projects being hashed about, what works, can work, may work, or forget it. BTW my first mug is on the way, SWMBO has already laid claim to it, sometimes ya like it even when ya lose....sometimes Ah say; sometimes that iiz. Muchas Gracias SeƱor Foghorn Leghorn :D .

Posted in the other thread around noon. I purchased the Mug via Pay Pal. No issues, as my order went right through. You get a confirmation from ARC, and two from Pay Pal.

Sure hoping that the ARC membership really get behind this effort for Steve and his family.

Guys quick question for you. What is the shipping charges like? I will be ordering at least 1 shirt but have to wait till my (do I dare say it?) bills are paid in full to see what I have left to play with.

SluggoU2,

I'm sort of surprised that out of 104 visits, that only 11 members made a purchase. I really thought that the purchase percentage would be well over 50%.

It's a pretty tough time of year to do fundraising. I figured it would take a few campaigns to get the job done. It's probably best to let this one run until after Christmas and then roll out phase two.

I manage a drug store for CVS, and right now we're asking for donations for Cancer research. about 25% of the customers say yes. Agreed to let this fundraiser run as long as there is any interest in it.
