    We need somebody to make and sell ADVrider tshirts, stickers, thongs, pins, and whatever else.

    There are two requirements:

    1. High product and service quality.
    2. At least 10% of gross is donated to advrider.

    And one really strong suggestion:

    3. Good looking babes to model the gear. :evil

    May I ask what happened to Killen and the shirts and stickers he was doing?

    He's pretty much incommunicado. He sold his GS and isn't around much anymore.

    What's that mean? Which details? Ain't no other details, as far as I'm concerned. Step up if you can. The mods (secret advrider conspiracy) will pick the lucky vendor(s).

    If you can do it, spam yourself. Here's your chance. Take advantage of it.

    I think Baldy has 'em now. I believe he got them from Killen. But don't quote me on that. :dunno

    I'll step up right now!

    If you still need someone to do this I'll do it. I work with a record label that does gazillions of t-shirts stickers matches coasters all kinds of stuff. So I'm sure I can handle this.

    But what we need is for there to be ONE vendor.

    I WON't do this to make money. I will send proceeds to baldy. But I don't want to do this if a bunch of other folks are gonna do it as well.

    So let me know if you want me to get this rolling. Or if someone else already has.

    FYYFF
    :freaky :drums :evil

    If I were to do this it would take about 3 weeks before I would have product.

    Sounds great to me.
    I'll step up with some design help (those baby blue stickers never seemed ballsy enough to me) if needed.

    Yeah, I have the logo artwork. People organize rallies all the time and do their own shirts and stuff for them. When you say one vendor, does that mean they all go through you?

    Yeah design help would be fabulous!

    What I mean by one vendor is that it seems, to me, that if you had a few different people making T-shirts and stuff that it would be hard to predict quantity's and such for ordering and pricing.
    but
    .....
    now that I think about it maybe it doesn't really matter. When there is a prototype the sample is shown and then with pre-orders and response the order could be made.

    Yeah, maybe that whole one vendor thing came off wierd but I guess I was thinking that there would be wasted energy out there, if there were numerous camps of people doing the same thing(s).

    I'm with Wombat. The volume will be low so we should have one person handling it.

    If Wombat pulls out, I give it a go.

    one vendor is a good idea for quality control. It might be interesting if people could submit design concepts. You must be able to order over the net obviously and take credit cards as well as pay pal. I think this will be much better than the cafe press concept.

    WOMBAT! This goddamned t-shirt is itchy! Where's my goddamned sticker?! My goddamned coaster got lost in the mail!

    Just getting you ready for what's to come, buddy. Thanks for taking this on.

    So, when can I order a t-shirt, sticker and coaster?

    I like yer attitude! However, mking789 actually PM'd me on this earlier than your post, and said he'd get back to us next week.

    I don't think there's a hard deadline.

    Agreed.

    Have you ever run a web business? A storefront would be nice, as would order ack and tracking.


    killen was a ringer since he both had a storefront and a successful business doing licensed merchandise from NASCAR, NBA, etc.

    What are your credentials?

    Killen was great but don't forget all the complaints and hassle about selling in batch. You had to buy something in a certain time window or you were out of luck.
