Finally, after months of prep and research into obscure postage rules and searching for a non-skeevy tshirt company, we have 300 shirts sitting in my garage that I am ready to fold up, stuff into envelopes, and mail your way. The new mefi shirt shop is here.
Unfortunately, our initial goal of getting the shop up a month before the anniversary ran into delays when we had to change shirt manufacturers and had to wait a few weeks for shirts to show up from the new company. If you're in the US and you order a shirt by Tuesday, it should get to you by Friday or so in time for the 10th parties. Outside of the US, it will unfortunately take at least a week to get there.
Printing is actual screen printing (big thanks to Devils Rancher
for printing them at his employer) on Royal Apparel shirts (which run a tad snug like American Apparel shirts) in sizes from Small to 2XL (both mens and womens) and even 3X in mens. There are MeFi catchphrases on the front, with a small MetaFilter logo on the back. Shirts are $15 and shipping is $5 US, $10 International. All sales are handled by PayPal and you must list your current mailing address in your PayPal profile if you want the shirts sent to the right place.
If the sales go well, expect to see new designs in the future. I may also be selling the last of the old blue original MetaFilter shirts from a couple years ago.
