Thumbs up Chia•den•freu•de TEE SHIRTS FOR SALE

hey guys

after lots of requests and making sure this thread was ok with Bingo i'll be making up a bunch of chia-den-freu-de tee shirts

chia_4885 by bc-chris, on Flickr

chia_4886 by bc-chris, on Flickr

for all the guys in calgary, i'd like to do a 'group buy' - that way i can ship them all together and that just saves everyone a bunch of $ in shipping.

ricosuave has already volunteered to be the guy that i'll ship all the calgary shirts to and then he'll take care of the calgary distribution.

here are the 'shirt details'...
  • BLACK TEE SHIRT
  • 9.1-oz, 100% cotton
  • Compacted yarns to minimize shrinkage
  • Taped neck and shoulders
  • Tear away label
in terms of 'fit' - this is just your normal run of the mill tee shirt - not fitted or anything like that.

i think i'll leave the 'ordering window' open until next friday - jan 18. i'll order all the shirts after that and should have them in my shop by jan 22/23rd. i'll get the chia text on them and get them out within a day or two.

in terms of cost per shirt... come on now, we all know something like this is pretty much priceless!! ha! ha! a number of oiler fans have already seen my shirt and reactions have all been positive (at least from my perspective)... everything from a blank stare, to the look you get when taking candy from a child, to just dropping their head in shame, to argumentative anger that the shirt is wrong even though stats don't really lie. i'll be seeing a bunch more oil fans tonight... can't wait!!!

costs for calgary group buy (if you are not in calgary, i'll have to add a shipping charge)

youth xs(2-4), s(6-8), m(10-12), lrg(14-16), xl(18-20) - $13/shirt
ladies adult xsmall/small/medium/large/xl - $13/shirt
ladies adult xxl-xxxxl (2xl-4xl) - $16/ shirt (sorry... the shirts just cost more!)
mens adult small/medium/large/xl - $13/shirt
mens adult xxl-xxxxxxl (2xl-6xl) - $16/ shirt (sorry... the shirts just cost more!)

i think the easiest way to do ordering is for people to email me @ mental-one@shaw.ca

what i'll need:
quantity and sizes of shirts you'd like (please indicate YOUTH or ADULT MENS/LADIES)
your cp user name (i will keep this confidential since i assume most personal email addresses are not your cp user name)

i'll also need an etransfer (also sent to mental-one@shaw.ca) for whatever your total $ owing is.

***if you are not in calgary - i'll also need a mailing address! i'm hoping to stop by the post office today to see how much it costs to mail a shirt. i want to keep shipping costs as low as possible!

that's all i can think of right about now

chris

It will be great if you can add a LOSERS oil drop logo underneath as well.

i thought of that... but that could get me in trouble with copyright stuff.



if i'm making stuff and giving it away that's not a big deal, if i'm profiting off a recognizable logo i could take some heat for that. so sorry, no 'losers' or 'coilers' logo on the shirts.... even thought that would be really funny!

for anyone not living in calgary, i went to the post office today to get a ball park price to ship stuff.... wow... talk about an exercise in futility!

the postal lady was absolutely useless! i told her i'm not asking for a hard and fast quote... just a ball park and literally all i got was a blank stare. then she's going on about express post boxes i can ship stuff in... wha??? no... listen lady... these are tee shirts - give me an idea as to what it will cost to ship them - likely in a bubble envelope.
finally got a little help and an educated guess that to mail a bubble envelope with a tee shirt inside will be $10-$15ish "but don't hold me to that!!" ...to quote the postal lady

so yea... anyone not in calgary, that's what i was told. i doubt puro/fedex/ups would be any better.

Thanks again for making these up bc-chris! I've admired your handiwork on jerseys and for calgaryboy's swag, and I'm happy to have my own now!

Sent email for my order!

And for any Calgary area orders, the package will be delivered to me, and pickup is at my place in Inglewood, near my work in Ogden, or possibly halfway between me and you, depending. Once they arrive, I'll PM everyone on the list and make arrangements.

Great stuff!
Better yet, some many years down the road, a young Flames fan will find one of those shirts in a thrift store and his or her father will proclaim that he knew the person that made that shirt.

I sent a DVD game from Rocky Mt House to Idaho.
Cost was $8. Pretty sure a single tee would have fit in the same envelope and likely weighed maybe a little less.
Idk if that helped

just a reminder that you need to order your shirts this week.


please make sure to etransfer $ before the cut off as i will only be ordering shirts for those that have paid.



those in calgary - $13 is the total cost.


for those not in calgary - i'm going to go back to the post office again to get a better shipping estimate (and hope that the lady that was in there the other day isn't around). i'll also bring postal codes for those out of towners that have already ordered to get really accurate shipping charges.

You cant even buy a t-shirt these days for $13, let alone ones as sweet as this! Plus, you get the added benefit of supporting an awesome CPer.

Get your orders in today! Or forever be jealous!
