T-SHIRT/HAT IDEA

Post by UMASS2010 » Wed Feb 15, 2012 7:44 pm

The idea of the site making either hats or t-shirts has been suggeseted on the men's hoops forum, so I decided to take mike's suggestion and start a thread. I personally would love a umas hoops T. I think if Mike sees enough support on this thread, he may actually make them...What does the rest of the forum think?

You need to add a "No" option to get a meaningful measure of interest.

Just sayin'
This is the most enjoyable losing season ever!

I concur. Otherwise, only the people who want the stuff are going to respond and there's no real indication of demand.

I think if you are going to do something like this, it needs to be simplistic and not overly flashy. Enough to be recognized by other members but not so blatant that everyone would understand. There are some who may not agree with opinions or views held by those on the board.

But don't get me wrong, I would buy one if proceeds over cost went to mike for the board.

To be clear, this wasn't my idea. I appreciate everyone's enthusiasm so far, but I may need help if we decide to proceed on this. No guarantees just yet.

I've added maybe and no options.

Agreed, if we do this it should be fairly simple, but hopefully not dull.

I'm going to need design help. And if we do this, I'll tell you right now that I don't have time to take/fulfill/ship orders. So, a provider like Cafe Press would make sense to me.

I have used Cafe Press before for a website I run and their fees are pretty high.

Can we get this done by he start of next season? If I come up with a clever idea, I'll propose it. Otherwise, hopefully someone else will have a good idea and spearhead the thing.

I am going to try and revive this idea. Without any real sports topics to talk about besides recruiting and measly bits of info, it seems like this would be a good time to actually get something done with this. And doing it now means they will be ready by the Indiana game.

Thoughts on a design?
Thoughts on distribution?
