Sorry I'm not for the timing cover, I prefer the engine inside the circle GB's I think.
Also quite like the whole bike a page or so back except the bike is riding into the wearers chest , would be better as in Es forum logo riding out of the wearers chest.

Defo need a poll of the designs so far displayed together on one post

Ok, here's the thing from my point of view. Personally I'm out of it if it's going to be a poll, or popularity contest. What you end up with is everybody's third choice. Instead of a horse you get a camel. The moment after I posted my original post on this subject, I KNEW I had ***ked up. Should have just kept my mouth shut. Been there and been stung too many times before.

As i posted, I like the "sublimation" method for long life, screen prints don't last all that long (many washes).  Could youmask them how many washes that printing would last and if they do sublimation? Also cost for 100 (25 M, 25 L, 25 XL, 25 XXL).

Custom Ink does not do dye sublimation. Personally, I'm not as concerned about the longevity of screen prints. In my experience they seem to last long enough, never completely peeling off but showing age wih cracks. I am guessing that if washed gently and dried on cool their life of beauty can be extended, just like me. Nevertheless, I'll give them a call.

As for the three continant  *????*. i would imagine the price would be better there (USA) and the postage would be about the same to UK and Aus. Or have a supplier on each continent (smaller run #'s = higher cost).


Cost for 100 in the quantiles suggested by Muskrat would be $8.08/each (I paid $28 for the one-off) with free shipping in the U.S. After a quick seach, it seems dye sublimation would be 1.5x to 2x the price. Custom Ink has a feature where every member of a group  enters his own size information and pays separately. Not sure if they must be shipped to one address, but it may not matter, since Custom Ink does not ship internationally.

As we have two viable designs we should put it to a poll. Timing Case, Engine sketch, other. I feel the Engine Sketch would make a good 3" patch for our jackets.

To me, though they will be reluctant to admit it, the votes that matter the most are Admin and Moderator. I would be just fine accepting their decision on an existing design, a modified version of an existing design or a completely new design. Though sight-unseen, I do believe Jools must have the skills to develop a fine design, and I respect his points about a wide poll. Nevertheless, I believe there still needs to be some minimum committee, which could include the three of them. I'm not trying to speak for anyone else (uuuuh, GB?) who has already invested time, money and enthusiasm for the project. So far, I don't see any restriction to going rogue if someone doesn't like the official design, regardless of how many people make up the committee.

Sorry, Bill, no offense intended. I was just trying to suggest a possible solution to what seems to have become a conundrum.

I look at it like this: had I just joined the forum that Erling founded, and had there already been a t-shirt in place of his design, I would probably have just bought that t-shirt without telling him I wasn't going to buy it unless he changed it to my design.

^^^^^^^^ there's one in every crowd *ex*
Thank's for that Richard. After a quick google it seems dye sub is only done on light coloured (white) material, so that counts my choice of black out. I'll go with a screen print. Prices down here would be a lot more than $8 US = $12 AU. A small local firm wants $150 to set up then $10 each on your own shirt! Would be interesting to see the cost from a UK/Europe firm.
I think looking back that GB's engine in Richards circles would look good in gold/yellow on a black shirt.
Cheers

Bill got in first. I agree.

Watch out for customs!

Just playing around and not going off the deep end promoting this design, but if I happen to print another shirt based on the timing cover design, I think I might go with this:

God only been away for 10 days and this seems to have taken on a life of it's own. I'll get up to speed in a few mo's but first wanted to share this with you. Been to Crete and took with me the A10 "t" shirt from ASDA £8 uk, to test reaction etc after seeing far to many Harley tee shirts last time away !!
people in the hotel were fairly interested lots of smiles and a few questions ,one guy from just outside small heath in brum was quite chuffed however over in Sissi a guy in a bar went went to see it ,or perhaps to much ozzo as well , but certainly loved seeing the bike ,got me a free beer ...result  *smile*
