Ride for the Pie! jersey...

I'd like one. How does one get just one jersey made up, without having to break the bank to do so? Or is there one of these out there somewhere?

One jersey? We had a run of 60 or so jersey's made up for our tandem club and they cost around $60.00 each. The first one can be hyper expensive to have sublimated.

The low cost alternative is to buy a plain stock jersey and have your design silk screened onto it. Even so, most of the cost is in the screen preperation and set up to do the first piece. After that you're only talking about a few cents more than the cost of the shirts.

Gary, here in our little college town, every club, frat/sorority, dance, party seems to have its own t-shirt. Keeps a couple of pretty good size companies in business. Usually there is a basic setup cost (if you bring your own graphic in for them to scan) then just the cost of the shirts.

As BF 50+ers, don't you think we ought to have old-fashioned muscle shirts, the ones that used to be worn as undershirts & prompted one to want to shout "Stella, Stelllaaa!" ? My daughter calls them 'wifebeaters' but where that term entered the lexikon is a mystery to me.

Thanks, but if nominated, I shall not run, and if elected, I shall not serve! (Well, I'd serve pie to anyone in the neighborhood, but that's about it.)

"Muscle shirts" for 20-somethings, "wife beaters" for 30-somethings.........."belly busters" for FiftyPlussers.

When you have a handle like mine you got to be cheap. What about Iron-on T-Shirt Transfers? Put up a design and we can all do our own!
