Ok, friends...here's the deal...

Bill has agreed, somewhat dubiously I might add, to let me have the honor of offering ReRanch merchandise to all you loyal ReRanchers out there.
I have a local contact for the merchandise, and she already has the logo scanned and ready to embroider. What I need to know from all of you is this....what would most of you like to have the logo ON?

I'd like to start with a few pieces and see how they sell, but I need to get a feel for what all of you might like. Please take a second and vote in the poll for the ONE item you'd like to see us start with.

FYI: After inquiring as to price breaks for bulk orderes, etc. it looks like embroidered hats will be around the $15 range, and an emboidered T-shirt would be probably around $20-25. An embroidered long sleeved denim shirt would be in the $35-40 range. This is not final, by any means, but just a rough guess so you can vote honestly.

Here's your chance to stand out at the next gig or guitar show....who knows how many other "closet ReRanchers" you might find when they see you in that spiffy new hat or shirt! Wink

Thanks in advance for your input....

Exclamation NOTE: JUST VOTE "NONE OF THE ABOVE" if you'd like a SILK SCREEN Tee...I can't ammend a poll once it's started, so I can't add that catagory, but I can still see the results that way. Exclamation

I'm "old school" rock n' roll - ditto on that screened T-shirt request.That would be the biggest seller -IMHO.

I'd probably get them all b/c I'm a real addict but I would definitely go for the ball cap. A one size fits all flex all kind with no crown in the front to make it stand up.

I agree with Joe on the ball cap, as I'm a ball cap/cowboy hat wearer. Goota have something over the eyes in this Texas sun!!!! I would rather see a silk screened t-shirt in the offering. I'm not T-shirt wearer, so the denim would be my choice of the two.

I would also suggest the silk screen as it also probably cheaper to manufacture.
I find with embroidered T shirts that the embroidery doesn't handle washing very well and the stitching can be uncomfortable.
I am a member of a PC gaming group and we offer merchandise with our logo through Cafe Espress. I don't know what their rates are but the stuff is priced reasonably.

BILL wanted everything embroidered.....I can see his point.

"Touch of Class", "Up and Above the Rest".

Just like the rest of the RR products.!!!!!!

Unfortunately, I think you may find that there aren't enough people interested in buying merchandise to come up with the initial expenses.

Cafepress.com is a good alternative because there's no setup fee like you usually have with silkscreening, embroidery, etc. There are other places that do small quantities without setup fees too, but every one I know of uses the same technology as Cafepress.com

That said, I might spring for a silk-screened tshirt if it looked good.

Ball cap or silk screened shirt would be fine with me.

BTW, I'd get a silk screened tee, a denim shirt and a ball cap. I told you I'm an addict. Laughing

And, I love the embroidered look too, like Lon said it is much classier with a REAL patch on a good denim shirt and cap.
