I got some prices today, but I forgot to see what it would cost to ship a shirt. I think regular parcel post in an envelope mailer would probably be the cheapest. I'll bite the bullet and make an extra trip into town tomorrow and get an average shipping price.

The world spins in slow motion when it comes to me. I have the price, but I forgot to ask if there was a minimum. And then I'll need to get some sort if idea what sizes to buy. I don't want to be stuck with an un-saleable size or two.

Quite a few of you expressed an interest in child, lady and X large sizes. In order to keep the price down, you won't have that choice. It will be s, m and l only, and no child or lady. I'm sorry if that leaves some of you out of the mix, but the majority are asking for a cheaper price. Remember, the whole object of this thing is to make a few $$ for Josh for the server and etc. fees, and at $15 a shirt, he's not making much money. Stay tuned.

I'll have to remove my order/interest in the shirts then.
I have a 54" chest. I'm also very tall and a large would look like a sports bra on me.
(I'll continue to support the forum via cash.)

I think there are alot of folks needing the larger sizes. Normally, they just charge an extra $2-5 more for the larger sizes

Just for reference, are the sizes similar to men's Hanes t-shirt sizes?
I felt the shirt, and it is a 100% cotton, good quality shirt. I have no idea how the sizes run.

Would you XL folks be interested in paying slightly more for your XL size? I don't want to end up with a lot of shirts I can't sell because no one wants that size. This is what happened when I was in charge of the turtle club's T-shirt sales. I ended up with quite a few XL shirts that no one wanted.

I'd like one but what of:

1) the size of the T-shirt

2) shipment costs

3) colours: are other colours available?

Appreciate an answer.

When I get all my ducks in a row I will post all this info for everyone, Gillian. This thread was started mainly to have an account of show of interest.

I would need an extra large, especially if it is 100% cotton. Yes I'm fat :-( but I also like roomie T-shirts. The guide dog group I was part of sold T-shirts, we usually ended up with smalls and 2X's didn't sell. Everything else sold really well. A lot of people also just like bigger T-shirts whether they really need an XL or not. Just a suggestion. And yes I would be willing to pay a little more for a bigger size.

I'm stalled, waiting to get @DeanS permission to use his drawing of Aladar as our T-shirt picture. But the project is still foremost in my mind. If anyone has a better way to contact Dean please do so. I've tried email and PM, but no response from him.
