Trust me, if I won the lottery I'd donate money to Ziroc without a second thought, and being young if I can scrape up some cash I will, but I'm really not bothered about having a special rank of any sort.
Talthyr, I see where you and Epona and Cloudy are coming from now, and I do understand needing to escape from some of the worlds more depressing aspects too. I would still like to see personalized Avatars, but won't fuss if they don't happen...I just hope we find some way to equitably fund our bandwidth habbit

Z, I remember a polls in the Polls forum aboutnthe T-shirt idea. I do not remember who actually made the shirts, but his name was mentioned in ones of those threads by you back then, and I am sure it is in the polls forum. There's not that many posts to sift through to find it, but I am busy at the moment.

Hmmm, the t-shirts are a good idea if you ask me, except (blame my pessimism) won't the cost of manufacture, unless bought specially made in a large bulk order make any profit from selling minimal?????

Unless of course Lord Shield has anything whatsoever to do with there making... I don't want an angry tentacle growing out of my T-shirt.

Not necessarily, Talthyr.

I had some T-shirts and sweatshirts made last year with the picture of the crying eagle super-imposed over the WTC. I took orders here at work and then told the company how many of each size I needed. My biggest order was only for about 30 shirts at one time.

The cost of the shirts and pressed-on logo were only about $8 each, regardless of quantity. Same for sweatshirts (about $12).

Unfortunately, as Lord Shield mentioned, these logos will eventually fade or wash out.

To make the logo's permanent, you have to do silk-screening. It's much more expensive, therefore, you have to sell more shirts to cover your cost (or raise the price or both).

With the potential market here, I think Ziroc could probably have the logo's silk-screened and still only charge $15-$20 per shirt. The problem is, HE will have to pay the set-up cost (around $200 or so) UP-FRONT, and then try to recover his money.

That's why people who make T-shirts like that try to sell large quantities of them.

MOST places do not give a price break for quantity orders. There is a set-up fee and then the charge for the shirt. The more shirts you sell, the less "cost per shirt" you incur.
