Title: T-shirt project
Post by: marcof on 2008.March.18. 14:00:35
I'm looking for a high resolution (preferably vector scale) image of the "enterprise one two eight" and/or "enterprise sixty four" logo that is on the machine and boxes.

And: would anyone be interested in a nice t-shirt/poloshirt with the above?
(I'm not sure how copyright issues may prevent this, but I'm willing to facilitate in creating t-shirt/poloshirts for those interested - at least I'd like one for myself - yep I'm a true geek :))

I have the Enterprise Forever logo in svg. I think it is not hard to replace the forever word. I used an image (maybe cover of the manual) to make that, but I need to edit by hand, because the image was poor. I tried to make the logo as close to the original as possible.
And yes a t-shirt would be very cool! :-)

Update: I attached the logo. I had to find it ;-)

Do you know anything about the costs? Is it possible to make t-shirts with the Enterprise Forever logo too? ;-)
I think we have to collect how many shirts we need and then you can request a quote.
I can post in the Hungarian part to see how many people want shirts, if you want.

Well, maybe the "enterprise forever" is even better (not computer type specific), I forgot about that :)

cost depends on quality and number of orders.

a year ago I ordered a number of high quality polos for a different purpose. The company logo was embroidered on the chest, see this image:
http://flickr.com/photos/marcof/247292018/in/set-72157594145095041/

(obviously, there were adult sizes too)

that was about 15 euros excl 19% VAT (so euro 17,85 incl VAT) per Hanes or Fruit of the Loom polo in size XXL. This was for 5 identical shirts (same size, same design)

However, there's a starting fee of 40 euros for scanning the pattern into the embroidering machine, so that cost has to be added as well (this is a one-time startup fee, so future orders would only have the production cost), split over the total number of shirts (so if 10 shirts are ordered, the additional price/shirt would be 4 euros).

All in all, incl shipping a polo like this may end up costing about 25 euros. Which may be quite high for certain people?

Of course, I guess there are alternatives like cafepress.com which will probably be cheaper, but the logo won't be embroidered, but "glued" to the shirt.

And maybe the prices in hungary are better?

I'm open for alternatives, I'd be willing to facilitate in the above options (cafepress, embroidering), but others should check hungarian options of course :)

maybe it's a good idea anyway to have a "enterprise forever" store at cafepress. it may make the site some money to compensate hosting cost. cafepress makes also mugs, mousemats, you name it :)

Post by: Zozosoft on 2008.March.18. 19:31:43
I think the embroidered is more durable!
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: marcof on 2008.March.18. 19:42:25
it is. but I am not sure everyone is willing to pay the premium for it? maybe you could investigate the interest in the hungarian fora?
Title: Re: T-shirt project

Maybe it would be cheaper if we order a few hundred? ;-) Do you know how many we have to order to get discount?

We should investigate that.
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: marcof on 2008.March.18. 21:25:18
with the embroidery, I could check. I've ordered up to 40 shirts at once, but since the sizes (and also models - male/female/child) can vary, there is not a lot of discount.

I have checked the cafepress site, and for example a dark t-shirt, the base price is $18.99. This is quite a bit cheaper than the embroidered one, but of course the logo isn't embroidered, but printed on the shirt. Which will fade after time (of course, price is lower, so you can buy a new one ;-)
shipping internationally (cafepress is a US site) may be expensive, although from personal experience I can say it isn't too bad (usually around 15$ if I recall correctly)

the selection of products at cafepress is huge, from buttons to caps, mousemats, etc.

the EP forever site could start a cafepress shop there. You could add a bit to the base price, and use that margin for funding the site for instance.

here's more info:
http://www.cafepress.com/cp/info/help/pricing_policy.aspx

some items at cafepress have bulk discounts by the way.
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: MrPrise on 2008.March.18. 21:39:29
the EP forever site could start a cafepress shop there.
I'm not sure if our members would buy anything and there are already other ways to support the site (for example I can give webspace for the people who want to support the site with a little money).
In the past there was an idea to make online shop (like eBay) where the members could buy and sell EP stuffs, like IDE controller, EXDOS card, etc. but we are a small (but very enthusiastic) community and there is not any real demand to a site with a feature like that.
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: marcof on 2008.March.18. 21:45:51
understood, just thinkingg aloud.

anyway, the offer for an embroidered shirt with EP forever logo still stands, let's investigate the interest so I can ask for a quote.

I think a polo shirt which is colored close to the enterprise gray with the logo on the chest would be very cool, and something you could wear to work as well :)
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: marcof on 2008.March.19. 09:15:39
hmm, I see quite a bit activity about the Polo in the hungarian forum..

what's the general view? I notice some are asking for ep64 and 128 logos? and the cost is too high, and an alternative site??
online translators suck :)

Sorry, here is the update ;-)
Gafz knows someone who is in the t-shirt business. He is trying to get a quote from him.
The link I posted was an example to prove the t-shirt maker companies are really exist in Hungary ;-)

Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: MrPrise on 2008.March.19. 12:10:47
I asked there what are their opinions about adding this site's address below the logo?
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: marcof on 2008.March.19. 12:31:06
well, maybe the design can be too crowded then.

an option is to have the logo on the chest and for instance the url high on the back
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: MrPrise on 2008.March.19. 13:04:20
I have made two variations for the logo with URL. You can see them here (http://enterpriseforever.com/enterprise_forum/polo-t344.0.html;msg9386#msg9386). I exported them from the SVG.
I don't feel it crowded.
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: marcof on 2008.March.19. 13:11:48
indeed, doesn't look too bad. I prefer the lower-case url design
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: MrPrise on 2008.March.19. 13:13:41
They also want logos with "one two eight" and maybe "sixty eight".
I hope the pixels will be visible on the t-shirts.
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: MrPrise on 2008.April.24. 12:44:13
We have our first quotation. The lady who sent it gave us a few suggestions.
We should put the logo on the left of the t-shirt's front with 9,5 x 3,5 cm dimension, but the URL would be to small, she suggested to put it on the back instead. We need to order at least 50 pieces. In that case the prices are these:

Logo on front
480 HUF / piece
URL on back
600 HUF / piece
T-Shirt (with collar)
1.920 HUF / piece

The prices are depending on the dimensions of the embroidery and the number of the t-shirts.
That means if we want the logo without the URL on the front in 9,5 x 3,5 cm and the URL on the back, one t-shirt will cost 3000 HUF + cost of posting.

I would like to have our original plan with the URL below the logo, so I asked what she can offer if we want that. Maybe the whole logo could be bigger. I'm afraid that will increase the price.
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: MrPrise on 2008.April.24. 13:53:10
We can order the t-shirts with bigger logo. The lady told if it is 12 cm x 5,5cm, the URL would be 6 mm, that should be well readable.
The new price would be 660 HUF / pieces. That means a t-shirt will cost 2580 HUF.
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: marcof on 2008.April.24. 16:41:59
thanks for the info.
which color will the polo have?

i converted about 4000 HUF to Euro (3000HUF t-shirt and 1000HUF postage?), which is about 16,- euro

You can put me down for 2 pieces in preferably 3XL. If not available 2XL is ok too.
Logo on front+URL on back would be cool, I think. But whatever design comes out, I'll take 2!
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: MrPrise on 2008.April.24. 16:57:18
I think the black would be the best or maybe dark grey (similar to the EP main color, as Zozo pointed out), if they have such a color.
The price is not final, because we can give them our own t-shirts (bought separately from another company if we find one) to work on.
We are trying to find the best affordable solution.
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: darkscreen on 2008.April.27. 14:25:45
It´s a nice idea with the EP t-shirts.
I would take two shirts in xl.
I think 16€ is not too much for a shirt, my pupils design every year a shirt when they finished school and they pay up to 20€ for shirt and logo.

Hello from Finland. I just got Enterprise 128 from Sweden and this is my first post to forum  :)

Is there picture of t-shirt, I have seen logo at other post before. What would t-shirt and shipping cost to Finland?

Thanks  :cool:
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: MrPrise on 2008.December.17. 14:47:00
Welcome to our forum! :-)
Unfortunately I can not show you a picture of the t-shirt. The logo will be on the front in 12x5cm size.
The cost depends on how do you want to be send it to you? By post or by DHL, TNT, etc. I don't know which would be the cheapest (maybe the post?), but the safe solution is not the post I'm affraid.
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: Mika73 on 2008.December.17. 14:51:55
Thanks  :cool: I havent had problems with post. I have got few postpackages from Hungary. When STA did send some X1541 and monitor cables for C64. But everything is ofcourse always possible. So its black t-shirt with small logo at cheast and url.

Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: MrPrise on 2008.December.17. 15:21:17

Yes. I made a sample picture about our T-shirt here (http://enterpriseforever.com/enterprise_forum/polo-t344.0.html).
This is not an official sample from the company who will make the T-shirt, so our real T-shirt will not be the same, but the image can help you to imagine how it will look.
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: Mika73 on 2008.December.17. 15:40:46
Yes. I did find picture of logo.  :cool:

What might t-shier (XXL) and shipping to Finland cost?

Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: MrPrise on 2008.December.18. 14:16:43
Finally I got an answer from the Hungarian Post.
The shipment price depends on the weight of the package, which I don't know yet, but I don't think if it will be more than 0.5kg.
So the prices are:
Below 0.5kg with priority: 1820 HUF, without priority: 1420 HUF
Between 0.5kg and 1kg with priority: 3520 HUF, without priority: 2470 HUF
+ 650 HUF for the registration (optional but highly recommended)
+ 325 HUF for the MidiBox.

If the package's weight will be below 0.5kg (I think we can safely assume that) the total cost of the shipping without priority will be 2395 HUF.
Title: Re: T-shirt project
Post by: MrPrise on 2008.December.18. 14:36:56
Update on the project: I ordered the T-shirts and they will be ready in January.
I ordered some extra pieces so if you didn't order yours earlier it is still possible to have some.
If anyone is interested let me know and I will write about the available T-shirts.

Welcome padam,

I'm glad you find us.
Because I already ordered the T-shirts you can only choose from the extra pieces. They are black with collar in size L and XL.
The price of one T-shirt is 2570 HUF + shipping cost. You can find my post about the shipping cost a few posts before.
You can contact me if you want to buy some of the extra T-shirts.

Nice job with the t-shirts, SlashNet! I like all designs, except number 6 and 7.

The sixth really doesn't move anything in me, it feels so banal. However, I find the seventh really utterly asinine, with the joystick as a hanging d*ck. That's not a good joke at all.

But the others have tasteful and quality design, especially the eighth. I think that's my favourite, so far.
Title: Re: T-shirt project

I think we must be grateful to somebody that brings us his designs for free. That has been a very hard criticism.  Sometimes all that sincerity is a surplus.

szipucsu, of course it can be inverted. Inexplicably, I didn't think about that version. :oops:
I'll made versions 2 and 9 inverted. Version 6 can be ready a while later (vector version of picture from setup guide (http://enterprise.iko.hu/books/Set_Up_Guide.pdf) p6-7, I already made few year ago, but Bellows I must redraw).

The print on the T-shirt should be arranged in a slightly different way.
The inscription is in the right place, but the computer graphics should be slightly lower.
In addition, printing on convex surfaces gives new possibilities :ds_icon_cheesygrin:
