They're ready!

 

We'll get to ordering info in a moment, but first, check out the look in these unisex t-shirt mockups, followed by a full view of the Orlando Informer graphics:

HOW TO ORDER - standard t-shirts

 

Thanks to the generosity and resourcefulness of FandomMama, we have a simple order form for you to complete. Once you've done so, an invoice will be sent to you in one business day for payment, and any major credit card will work. As soon as payment is received, orders ship within three business days.

 

Click here to open the order form, which includes details about ordering, shipping, and getting your name included on your shirt. Note: don't forget to include an email address on the form - that's how we contact you!

 

For examples of the colors that can be ordered and the customization we're offering, see the images at the top of this post.

 

If you have questions about ordering, please skip to the end of this thread and reply, or you can contact me privately.

 

If you have questions about an order that's already been mailed, please send a private message to FandomMama.

 

Finally, as you might suspect with this sort of small t-shirt operation, all sales are final. (Also, for what it's worth, our site isn't making anything from these sales, which is perfectly fine - I much rather have lower costs for you than make money from t-shirts.)

 

 

HOW TO ORDER - custom t-shirts

 

If you'd like to create and order a t-shirt immediately with the new design, you're welcome to download the original, full-resolution files. Right-click on these links to save...
 

Icon (most likely to be used on the front of a shirt): https://dl.dropboxus...n-full-1500.png

 

Logo (if used by itself, probably for the front - if used with the icon, probably for the back): https://dl.dropboxus...rt-embossed.png

 

Reminder: don't use the actual images that appear at the top of this post - those are low resolution files. Use the PNG links to download the artwork.
 
One option I've used myself and recommend is CustomInk.com. The downside is that they only ship to the U.S. and Canada, so if you live elsewhere, you'll have to find a different site (scroll through this thread or reply for recommendations).

 

Also, keep in mind that, if you order one shirt, it will likely cost between $25 and $30 with shipping. That's just the nature of ordering a single custom t-shirt.

 

Finally, if you decide to go with CustomInk.com, do note that you can change the t-shirt style by clicking the "Swap item" link in the design lab. Then, for single-item orders, you need to choose from the second-to-last category (no minimum), as seen here:

If you go ahead with your own order, be sure to let us know how it turns out!

 

As always, thanks for your support :)

I'm not saying this is the best place or the cheapest place to get individual T-shirts printed (they do large order discounts too) but I have used them in the past to print T-shirts for my kids' "companies" and "clubs".  The name of the company is Queensboro.  Here is a link to another posting of mine where I first mentioned them:

That's awesome!

 

I'd probably make the logo just a tiny bit smaller on the shirts, but either way, thanks for putting those up :)

psssssstttt i happen to have very close connections with someone here in GA who owns a printing company (we both volunteer for the same nonprofit and work closely together very often). i would be more than happy to talk with them and get a quote and go from there to organize a buy for OI. only if everyone is comfortable with me doing so, that is

 

ETA: i'm going to go ahead and meet with them monday morning just for a no strings attached estimate.

Or, you could just print the .png file on transfer paper and iron on a t-shirt of your choosing until the time comes when they're available...I think I'd put the logo big on the back and front with a smaller logo and my profile name on a sleeve so that it doesn't get covered by a backpack...that way other forum users would see you in UOR coming or going! Or, it would look great on a backpack but unless it's a canvas/cotton fabric, you can't iron-on yourself...

Just wanted to mention that I'm having a smaller version of the t-shirt design made for our new site logo (for our Facebook icon pic, etc.).

 

When that's done, I'll post it. Could serve as the "smaller" logo for the front of the shirt.

I was considering using iron-on transfer paper too.  I know they sell it at Michaels and AC Moore craft stores.  But in my experience, the iron-on transfers don't work well on dark colored T-shirts... the image is not opaque enough (because of the printer ink) so it doesn't stand out against the dark fabric.  On white T-shirts, however, the iron-on transfer paper works brilliantly.

And Vistaprint accepts .png files too that you can resize yourself and print on any of their items...

You have to buy the specialty package that says "for dark color fabric"...slightly more pricey than for light colors.

Think you'll have one available in a style that will actually flatter the larger woman?? Lower neckline? I'll take one in yellow, please. (Yup, Hufflepuff!) I bought one last month in the Wizarding World; had to get one bigger than I normally wear and it hangs almost to my knees....
