View Full Version : Blab T-Shirt Poll 2012! UPDATE - a very few extras available!



Mary

Getting this project started asap ... some Blabbers are wanting more t-shirts!

Last year's cost was $23 for a shirt without your name, $33 to add your username on back and real name on front. I expect this year's cost will be similar.

Your comments here, thanks! :rays :talk

Please vote ONLY if you would probably buy. Thank you! :woohoo



Keep scrolling down for color samples ...


This year's design will have changes, yes!
But ... are people interested in seeing the Qwerty design return in some form?

(on the BACK of the shirt)
http://www.modelhorseblab.com/forums/zimages/tshirt/QWERTYshort.jpg





designs & letters will be a color that will stand out against the background
(blue on white or blue; or white on darker blue)

a light blue, like this one?

a brighter "medium" blue, like this one?

a royal blue, like this one?

I like the royal blue color!

04-22-2012, 10:15 PM
I'd like to see the white with blue letters! The medium blue is nice too, so one or the other for me. Since I got one last year, I would prefer to not have the same color again.

Ack, forgot to vote for the return of Qwerty!

But also... Please can we have at least one design option without the conga anywhere on it (if that, too, will be returning)? The entire reason I didn't buy a shirt last year was because I couldn't get one without the conga.

Mary
04-23-2012, 03:12 PM
Alrighty ... talked to T-Shirt Guy. I anticipate that this will be a smaller order, so keeping it more simple to keep the cost in line with last year.

Design: See below.
Qwerty on the back, like one of last year's selections. Front will have a logo where the pocket would be.

Personalization:
Name(s) on the sleeve this year. You can have your Blab name and real name.
(Would you like Blab name on top, or real name? All will be done the same way.)

Color:
There will be LIMITED choices! Probably 3 colors, at least one will not be blue.
The colors will be those that will show up the white design well.
There will be examples to see when ordering ... don't have them just now, though.

YAY!!!! Thank you so much for making this happen, Mary!! I'm excited to have a t-shirt for BF!!!! I'm open for either option for the name set-up. Do the names run horizontally around the arm, or up and down? Seems like a small space to put the names, just a thought.

Oh yes. This company provided a good range of sizes, small & large, all the way up to 5X. Good thought to check - not every size was in every color, so I need to be sure I have that info ready. :)

Order by May 31st to select your color and size ...
over-run shirts will be available afterwards, but likely not many
and of course they will be the colors and sizes available at that time

Hey just a quick question......how do the sizes fit???
I am ever frustrated shopping in say, WalMart when one side of the adult section fits me...and the other side of the adult section fits my daughter (I am always buying tshirts and then giving them to her because they dont fit).....even though they are the same size :S I dont want to order a shirt and have it not fit :(

Eviejean
05-10-2012, 11:30 PM
Mary - Are the t-shirts this year going to be the same brand as last year?

Mary
05-10-2012, 11:41 PM
Yes, they are the same brand as last year, Gildan. The sizes run a tad large. The shirts are pre-shrunk. They are a cotton/poly blend, and the blends are slightly different depending on the color. Gildan is a quality make, along the lines of Jerzees and Hanes.

If you have a few t-shirts there is a good chance you have a Gildan among them -- if you want to use that to help you benchmark your size. Look at the tag for the maker. :)

I would love that! They are more expensive and there are a few complications ... but we'll definitely see what can be done. :)

Thanks for the orders! Tangerine and military green. That will be a lot of fun to get all the shirts with people in them in one place and see the colors. :grintongue

Double-post:

I wear an average of a large t-shirt, like from Old Navy or Kohls or Target. Will a large in these shirts be good? I don't want it uber tight or loose. If it helps, I have a 38B chest. ;) (More than ya needed to know, right? :lol )

Can't wait to order one!!!

Vicky Norris
05-11-2012, 08:56 AM
I ordered a cedar, looks like a lovely soft color. I did order the same size I got last year as that shirt, while loose, covers my upper flabby, flappy, fat arms and I don't wear anything that doesn't....lol I wasn't sure about ordering a size smaller, even though I've lost over 20 lbs since last summer!!!!!! :lol

FriesianFury
05-11-2012, 12:03 PM
I want one so bad, but I dislike wearing any kind of T-shirt that is not V neck (its a long story why). Is there a chance that maybe next year there can be a V neck shirt mixed into the bunch?

PolarVrtX
05-11-2012, 12:43 PM
I can't remember what size I ordered last year! I'll have to find my shirt and check... Anyway, it's between Cedar and Blue Dusk for me. Love the color choices!! :)

We'll get the order in to allow enough time to
gather all the colors, allow the factory to print the pattern in one run,
add all the names and send your t-shirt to you

I bet you can. :) I had asked Mary if I could get something else instead of my name since it's already in my username. But I couldn't come up with anything clever, so I have VAF on the top line and Lindsay on the bottom, so it's all readable.

Mary
05-31-2012, 09:49 AM
Yes that's fine, Shauna. There is a box in the order form for your "real name" and your "Blab name." Just till in whatever you want.

On the sleeve, real name will be on top, Blab name on bottom.

Mary
Mary

Oh wait. Not a good example. :grintongue

Shauna
RivnRo

or

Shauna - RivnRo
Epic Fail Studio

or something else.

I think there will be plenty of room for the studio name - just an opinion.

For example, Julie Cervantes just had her name added to one of last year's, and "illuminatedartist" had plenty of sleeve room and still readable.

First they round up all the t-shirts by color & size. It takes time for those to come in as some come from remote locations.

The last row of the color page are the "guy colors." Last year several guys had shirts (royal blue) ordered for them ... I don't know if they knew in every case! :lol Anyway, cardinal red looked like a nice guy color for a guy that didn't want bright, but not plain either. :)

Mary
07-06-2012, 10:23 PM
Yep ... the notice at the top of the forum has the info at this instant (but it's coming down sometime tonight.)

5 are left.

There are 4 of the 2012 design, there are 4, all X-Large, 2 jade and 2 galapagos blue.

There is only 1 left of the 2011 design, and it is at a discount. Qwerty in Large. I haven't yet taken Conga off the order form, but the last of those was ordered yesterday and mailed out today. :)

Here's the online order form (http://www.modelhorseblab.com/forums/zimages/tshirt/OrderForm2012.htm). Order tonight and I'll get it sent tomorrow (no personalization to send it right away.) :thumbsup

Anything ordered after I take the top notice down in about an hour or so will mail Monday. Or the day after the order, if it's ordered next week. :)

If you can wait, the shirts can still be personalized, but it won't go out until later in July (after BF.)

Thanks for getting me to go check on that!

1 Large "Qwerty" from 2011 in Royal Blue

2 XL 2012 in Galapagos Blue

1 XL 2012 in Jade Green

They CAN be personalized. Our t-shirt guy is happy to put the name on the sleeve of just one, it isn't any trouble for him.

Click here for the order info (http://www.modelhorseblab.com/forums/zimages/tshirt/OrderForm2012.htm) -- and please pm me and let me know if you do order, as I don't have it set to ping me.

I have to say these shirts are some of the most comfortable t's I've ever had. I may be biased, but I've had a little talk with myself that it's ok to wear them out! :lol
