[Group buy is over. I will sell off the handful of extras I paid for when the order arrives.]
Shirts for sale here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=129689.0

I see there are several people asking the same question I asked last year...where's a nice & simple T-shirt design with just a bitcoin logo?

I've looked through what's available and I'm not happy with the few remaining options we have. I'm by no means a graphics design or t-shirt guy but what I wanted was very simple, so I have again tried to mock it up. My last attempt just took the common bitcoin logo (used by the older client, many webpages, etc) and put it on a shirt. It turns out printing this is much too expensive, because the image had many colors. As an alternative, I just took the simpler B and put a circle around it.

I'm using a extremely soft shirt - I picked it because I already own one and it's the most comfortable t-shirt I've ever had. I dug around until I found a printer that offered this shirt...however, it's a light-weight shirt, in case you care. (100% cotton.)

If you live in the USA & are interested in one of these shirts please PM me your size and color preference. Let me know if you're willing to buy another color if no one else wants the one you picked. I doubt I will have enough interest to print more than 1 style, but if so, I'll be happy to do so.


Local rules: no trolling. no criticism or negative feedback even if you're supposedly "trying to help." I do not care if you don't like my shirt. I only care if you want one - otherwise, please do not post. Thanks.

PS - these are mock-up images produced by an online shirt editor. They are not photos of an actual shirt. If you think this should be silly to point out, I agree.

Thanks for your interest.

Order is placed, group buy is over. Details left here for reference only.
For everyone who did not send me a deposit, I tried to get enough extra shirts so that you could order after they arrived. I will update the first post when that happens. I tried to get shirt sizes from everyone who expressed interest, but some people ignored my PM's and questions....don't know what to tell you. Undecided
The remainder of the shirts will be sold first come, first serve. I will post pictures of the shirts when they arrive.



Here are the final colors:
Because interest was decent and 2nd place was spread out among the A, C, D and options, (and it appears that the shirt company will give me most of the qty discount for 2 background colors with the same color logo), I'm going to try and print all 4. I will front a decent amount of the cost to make sure we still get prices under 11$ each for all 4. The remainders will be sold off afterwards at a markup, or failing that, I will wear nothing but bitcoin shirts for the next 3 years.

This is, assuming, I hear back from most of you who contacted me.  Smiley Because I can effectively combine qty for A&C, and so many people wanted B, D is the only one in real danger of getting cut.  However, if everyone who wanted D follows through, it will also be printed without additional orders.

What I need from you now:

1: Your selection number (A,B,C,D), size, quantity - if you want more than 1 style or more than 1 size, please put each one on a separate line. I'll copy this straight to a spreadsheet.
Example for an order for 2 Medium Gold logo on Black shirts, and 1 XL Grey logo on Black shirt:
B,M,2
D,XL,1

2: A 0.5BTC deposit for each shirt you want. I won't know the full amount until I hear back from everyone, and place the order. Even then, I won't know the shipping total until they come in and I have to package them. This is downside to getting them at cost - it's impossible to know the exact cost ahead of time. But I will cover the rest until they arrive. This deposit is non-refundable, unless the order for your requested shirt style does not get placed due to lack of other deposits. At that time I'll ask you whether you want a different style or a refund. If I don't hear from you I'll send a refund - so include a refund address with your message.

When I get your order total message, I will send you a personal deposit address.
I have already exceeded the PM limit for now, so please wait until I can send you a personal address before depositing. Someone sent to the address in my sig, and while I appreciate the promptness, I don't want have to get key-signed confirmations that the txid belongs to you. I'd rather generate a unique address for each person.

After I've heard from or given up on everyone (I'll wait a week or so) I'll place the order. There will be approx 2 weeks lead time to make shirts, unless someone wants to donate the rush processing fee ($25.)

3: Your email address. We should use PMs here, but send me an email you frequently check as a backup.

4: Your shipping address. I will ship the cheapest way I can, so let me know if you want Priority. It may only be 2$ more, depending on your order qty.

5: When the order comes in, I will email you a request for the remainder of your payment. I will use the spot price of BTC at the time I send the request. I'll hold your order for 30 days - after that time your deposit is forfeit. Hopefully this won't be a concern, but I want to cover everything up front.

Speaking of that, if there's any other potential problems I haven't addressed, please feel free to let me know. Hopefully everything will go smoothly.

Thanks!!

These are super nice, I'd take 2 of each.

Can you make the one on the top right, the B a little less bright?

Maybe the same red you use on the bottom left.

Thanks Charlie. I sincerely hope I have enough other people interested to print several colors. Otherwise I'll end up with people thinking I wear the same shirt every day.

I am happy to consider other color combinations...personally there are probably 50 more possibilities I would be fine with getting. I can do a few more tonight. The red color I used for the shirt is the same color used on the shirt I bought already (which I like a lot) but they didn't give me that choice for the picture coloring...only more orange-y colors. I will show you some more examples.

I have a feeling they won't look quite as vibrant in reality as they do in the picture, though, so it might not be an issue.
Here's a real picture of the shirt material color: http://www.toomanytshirts.com/390.html
Here's the picture advertised on Bert's website: http://bertbertbert.com

All about lighting I guess.

Another color combo I was thinking of would be yellow on a black or red shirt. If people actually like this design and want more than one option I will keep printing.

Excellent news - I was wrong, they do have an option for the same color red as the red shirt.
I definitely like that shade of red better. I put it in the 2nd post some shades of yellow.

I wouldn't mind a yellow on black (the one resembling the actual BTC logo color).  I'm a 4XL though. :\

Thanks guys!

They do charge extra for 2XL and larger sizes (looks like 1.50 for 2XL and 2.50 for 3XL for this particular shirt), but every additional shirt brings the price down, so with just a few more the XXL total won't be much more than the current total.

The one other thing I need to know is if you still want a different color combo if the one you voted for doesn't come out on top. If not, that's fine - if you can wait a little bit I will probably place another order in color as well. I just want to know your decision before lowering the price quote to reflect your additional order.

bigbeninlondon - This particular shirt only goes up 3XL, but I have found a way to use a different shirt and still get the quantity discount. I added a 5250 tagless Hanes shirt in 4XL to the order and the upcharge is 3.50 for 4XL. Let me know if that's do-able for you. Also are you in the USA? I don't mind shipping to a few people outside the US, as long as you know how ridiculous international shipping has gotten recently. It's not going to be cheap.

Awesome!

So, if there's a decent number of people who would order 1 (or more) in multiple colors, definitely let me know when you post. I didn't think I would have enough interest to print more than 1 design.

So if I can only print 1 design for now, do you only want 1 shirt?

orange on black
grey on black

i have a shipping adress in NJ.

What is your shirt size?

Nice. My vote would be for a green on black, but as that's gotten no votes so far, orange/gold(color from the client) on black would be my next choice. Count me in if these get made.

Things are getting a bit confusing - totally my fault, I should have labeled the shirt options more clearly. I will revise the pictures later today when I get back home.

I am slightly colorblind - but I believe I used grey and not green - there are several votes for that option. However, I want to make sure you meant grey logo on the black shirt?

So the gold logo on black shirt is definitely getting printed at this point. It looks like I will be able to print at least 2 styles. Maybe even 3! I will let people respond for another few days before making a decision - the more, the merrier.

I can't update the prices quite yet because people can't really commit until they know all the definite options. However, if most people follow through prices should be under 11$ for either style.

Thanks again guys!! I am very happy to be able get a few of these for myself without paying an arm and a leg for a small personal order.
