    Red Sunset Jersey

    This is the thread for organizing who wants this jersey & how we're going to do this.
    We'll need 10 people, so as soon as 10 people express interest, we can collect the deposit & get the jersey in process with Champion Sys.

    Jersey Count
    kuf: 1 Women's jersey
    haimtoeg: 1 Men's jersey & 1 Women's jersey



    Not so Armageddon-ish

    I think you will need to include a price before you get too many responses, who then may back out when they learn the final price.

    It's $45 for a jersey according to their site:

    Our custom jerseys are only $45 each and that includes unlimited colors, no set-up charges and FREE FedEx shipping on all U.S. orders over $500!

    So it should be that plus tax/shipping, unless you know of any hidden charges?

    Call them up, ask for possible charges for:

    -proofing/sample
    -corrections

    Find out if their "Free Shipping" is to the distributor (this would be you or UMD) or to the individual recipients. In the case that you will be distributor, you may need to calculate a 'base' shipping fee for everyone else. $5 is pretty reasonable if that's the case, if it's only a jersey.

    Sales tax is 8.25% or so.
    Weight weenies keep it light.

    It sounds like they will be shipped to my house.
    I expect it to be between $50 and $55, all told. We can say that the commitment is for the jersey for up to $55.
    So, if I get 9 other people willing to pay up to $55, I'll talk to Champion & get it started.
    Then collect deposits after it's confirmed with Champion.
    I think I had 6 people interested in the vote poll, so I don't know how many will be buying it.

    And, there will be matching shorts available.
    If you want shorts, let me know if you want U-Panel, T-Panel, part-wrap, full wrap, whatever. I don't think there is a minimum for shorts as long as we have 10 jerseys.

    There's no charge for a digital proof. A printed sample is possible, but you'll have to discuss that with them. Size samples are available for the cost of the return shipping. There's no sales tax. Shipping from the manufacturer is also included. For distribution, a single S/S jersey fits in a USPS Flat Rate Priority envelope.

    Assuming you're going with Champ-Sys, they're $45/each, out the door. There are options such as zipper type, and cut at no extra charge. I just read that the shipping is free for orders over $500, so you'd need 12 jerseys to qualify. So assuming you get that, cost would just be the unit cost of $45 + whatever you want to charge the buyers for their individual shipping/handling.

    That's cool. It used to be just under $2 per jersey. Every little bit helps!

    I have a sneaking suspicion that the other bike forums jersey won't get made. The designer is not involved in the process, and there is disagreement regarding the wording.
    So, here it is folks. As official a so-cal bike forums jersey as we can get.

    Why is the picture all blurry?

    And the soviet font does not match the tropical image.

    Either change the text or put a picture of Putin

    It reminds me of the Impressionist school in art, like Monet or Paul Gaughin!

    have one you like better? We were going for a techy looking font without being geeky.
    (We aren't married to it, we are open to suggestions. If everyone wants a different font, we can go with it.)

    You might take a look at Magneto font.

    Very post modern techy looking font, although it may be too recursive.

    It's available for free in Inkscape, as part of the package and Inkscape is an open source Vector Graphic system compatible with Adobe Illustrator, etc. It's available for free download and can work with Raster as well as Vector Graphic files. The .svg can be used in either the proprietary or standard .svg as well, and having the art in a Vector file will help avoid some setup cost as well.
