oh.. and that is for black.. even less if white shirt.

and if you are doing black.. make sure you use a photoshop PSD and the background is transparent, not black.

Once registered with Vistaprint they drip out offers to you continuously. I keep getting emails with discounts and so don't see any urgency to order the shirts just yet. I've just been too busy to follow up on this and also a little demotivated by the lack of response to this thread. Nevertheless, I will be putting up an order page for the t-shirts in the near future. I'm going to stick with black short sleeve t-shirts only and offer a few variations on logo size and position including one with a big logo on one side and a small one on the other.

It would be nice to increase exposure by selling these on eBay (like the patches) but that would mean I'd have to pre-purchase the t-shirts and then the issue of sizes comes into play. Perhaps just offer XL? Any suggestions?

I like the black short sleeve T shirt with the big logo and I like the mug. I'm interested in both.

eBay selling sounds like a good idea. More Colecovision fans and collectors would see it, and enjoy buying the T-shirt.
The XL size should be the most popular.

Both RelliK111 and myself(purenergy) would like to buy XXL/2XL size T-Shirt(s). Anyone else here @ Atariage want an XXL size?
:)

Thanks
:D

Hey, you're supposed to wait and buy one for me to help fund the cart mold - LOL.

BTW - I will be getting together a thread to sell the t-shirts, just haven't had the time. Will likely get it organised over the coming weeks. I'm going to restrict it to black t-shirts.

Rather than white will you have a blue or gray shirt? Large logo is contrasting color is good. Color is neat too.

Okay, it's been an awful long time coming and I apologise for that but I am now back on the case with this project. I am about to order a "proof" t-shirt and mug from Visatprint just to make sure the image quality looks good before I start taking orders. I am most concerned about the colour gradient within the "COLECO" text. Visatprint have stopped charging for image uploads and so I will be able to offer custom shirts to suit everyone's particular taste. For the proof t-shirt I am ordering a black t-shirt with the small logo on the front a large on the back.

It'll be a few weeks before I receive the items and will post pics when they arrive.

I got the t-shirt around a week ago but was away travelling for work again so didn't get a chance to do anything with it. I have now looked it over and have decided to reduce the grey from a 40% to a 20% grey. The 40% just didn't look right and I'm hoping that the 20% will look better. The mugs look great and so I will retain the 40% grey for those.

Your post was good timing. I'm off work today and had planned on putting up the t-shirt and mug order post. Look out for it in the next few hours.

I'm subscribed to the Vistaprint offers and did indeed get the latest one.
