Has anyone made them? Should I make them? Would you buy one? What are some company logos and or decals you'd like to see?

Lets discuss!

Years ago I had a THE WORLD 1895 dealer Window Decal

I used the art to make USA quality t shirts silk screened- not sticker-

$25.

Di*k in the dirt - no one wanted to pay that much- gee at the beach t's are 3for$10...(one wash and..)

I ended up giving them away with customer orders.

Based on my past experience offering to get T-shirts made for people who want them and then don't want them after they're made and YOU paid for them, here's what I'd do. Get a commitment and cash before you ever lay any money out. Sell them for 2 or 3 bucks more than you paid for them, then get a few (very few) extras made because the guys who knew about them all along but didn't order will all of a sudden want one.

Great idea

If I ever got around to it I was going to make an Elgin V badge shirt. It won't happen, as I'm computer illiterate and don't have the art work. I'm sure a short run of a popular brand would sell out between the Cabe and Ebay. Kris

Its just been one of those things I've wanted to do for awhile, the whole commitment thing bugs me.

I'm having a run of my car club tee shirts made..

I made up a few Columbia, and Pope shirts about 20 years ago. I made them for myself, but did sell a few to people who asked. I wasn't doing it to make money. I gave a bunch away too.

I have made t-shirts for events, two-color silkscreen, front and single-color back, hanes heavyweights, 100@$5 per shirt. Just fyi.

I understand you would only be able to make shirts of uncopyrighted logos/emblems but it would seem that the more popular the bike the more popular the shirt, just my $.02.

How about Hoodies? We only get a couple months of t shirt weather up here but I wear hoodies from Sept- June.
