    Chicago Meet T-Shirt Availability

    JimmyH and I have been working on a shirt design for the Chicago meet, and I've been getting prices. The original design had a color Cadillac wreath and crest on both the front and back, but screen printing all of those spot colors was going to be way too expensive ~$28 each.

    So we have some alternative designs with pricing information:

    Option #1: 1-color front, full-color wreath and crest on the back:




    With this option, the shirt will need to be as close as we can get to the blue in the crest because that part of the crest will not be printed, using the shirt to provide the color. This allows us to do four spot colors instead of five and saves about $10 a shirt.

    Price: $17.21 each with a 20-shirt order. If we order 22 shirts, it brings the unit price down to $16.50, and if we order 24, it's $13.07 each.

    Option 2: 1-color front and back:




    Price: $10.50 each with a 20-shirt order. If we order 24 shirts, it brings the unit price down to $7.50 each.

    Option 3: 1-color front and back with combination logo:



    Jimmy thought it might be cool to include both the current and previous versions of the wreath and crest since we'll have cars from both eras at the meet. Pricing for this option is the same as the other one-color version.

    From earlier discussions, it seemed blue was the preferred color, and while the full-color version will need to be more of a royal blue, we could do a different shade or an entirely different color with the reversed out artwork.

    Please vote for your preference by Sunday, August 2 so we can get the shirts ordered and produced in time for the meet.

    Also, please indicate if you intend to buy a shirt regardless of which design is ultimately chosen and what size you want. We'll need quantities and sizes to place the order.

    Leave it to me to complicate things: I like the front of option 1 and the back of option3. And I'll take two LARGE.

    I like option 3; but then I am biased since I authored the logo

    I am in for 2-3 XL shirts regardless of what the final choice is.

    I like option one but I would much rather have a small Cadillac crest on the front instead of the Cadillacowners script. IMO, having the crest and the script on 2 lines under it is just too much.

    If we had the crest on the front, it would need to be the reversed out one-color version. Full color on both the front and the back was making the price per shirt too high.

    Okay, now changing my mind and I'm gonna screw everything up. What if we used the colors of the third shirt but instead of that odd looking split logo we just had an old logo on the front and the new logo on the back?

    I wouldn't want a shirt unless it was #1. Quite simply, having CadillacOwners.com in 2 lines looks more than ridiculous...
