Having the image lower down on the back should be easy enough. The final placement of the images on the hoodies would be done by the printers and they would know where things should go.

They will charge quite a bit extra for a full print on the front rather than just a logo (i think). And agree with Kaylee although they put the image where ever they like anyway. I assume you made the mock-ups?

Otherwise, looking good!

If we only have one colour, i'm happy with green - but could we have a less offensive t-shirt please (no white arms)

I was trying to find a t-shirt that was both green and white, like the hoodie. However, a plain green t-shirt is easier and cheaper.

With printing (rather than embroidery) the size of the print does not effect cost. Cost is determined by the number of colours and the number of prints.

Yes. I did the mock-ups late last night, although with hindsight, sleep might have been a better idea.

Yes that sounds like a good compromise, having the T-shirt a different colour to the hoody.
Any suggestions on what colour you would prefer the T-shirt to be?

I like my blue t-shirt. But I'd imagine a lot of people would like black.

Black is very distinctive when printed in white, so might be a good choice.

I don't like the T-Shirt garment design; if you're going for a single colour T use a single colour preferably heavy weight one so they last.

I've got a first quote for the price of the hoodies and t-shirts.

Assuming that we ordered about 20 hoodies and 30 t-shirts, we should be able to see them to club members for about 20 for the hoodies and 10 for the t-shirts. That cost is based on the hoodie I posted the photograph of and a heavy weight coloured cotton t-shirt, including printing back and front in white ink.

Def like the single colour and design looks good. Could we get a girly fit t-shirt as well as a blokes one?

The company used for last couple of years is pretty good I think. Nathan did last year so could give him a buzz.

Have you tried XAMAX - They're who we usually use and are pretty reasonable. They should be able to do Tee's for cheaper than 10

I think Jon meant the club would charge 10. He was the one the one who originally found XAMAX and passed the details onto me :)

I tried calling Xamax for a quote today but when I called them we got cut off half way through the call and then when I called them back they said that fire alarm was going off and had to evacuate and then hung up on me. I'll try calling them on Monday as a second quote would be good even though the quote I got today seemed fairly good.

The costs I posted were what the club could charge and still make a small profit for club funds while making the cost of a t-shirt or hoodie a nice round number so who ever is collecting money is not always be running out of change.

A girly fit t-shirt may be possible, however, it would require two additional printing screens (front and back) due to the small size of the t-shirts, which would cost an additional 50 in set-up charges and most printing places have a minimum order of 25 t-shirts before they will make up a screen. There are a few places which will do small orders using a different process. Checking out one that gave an online quote, it suggested a cost of about 17 per t-shirt, which is getting a bit steep. Can we get an order of 25 girly fit t-shirts?

If you Xamax they should be more lenient  since we've used them lots before. When I ordered them we didn't meet the minimum orders by quite a way but they didn't seem to mind.

I like it :)

Just one tiny thing; the 'It' on the back doesn't need a capital I (teacher in me, lol).
