I have looked into having a shirt made for the 2012 V-Strom gathering and was thinking of a small logo to go on the pocket area of the shirt and came up with this,

I have enquired at a local embroidery shop in Inverell and was quoted $66 set up fee, $14 for embroidery and $20 for a JB polo shirt. Therefore if we had an order for 11 shirts it would cost around $40 plus postage. I am not looking to make money from this, I would like a shirt for myself, and with the $66 set up fee the more we order the cheaper they will be.
My idea was to order the shirts now and then wear on rides etc. over the next 6 months to promote the event. I think it would look better on a lighter coloured shirt (already have too many black shirts) something like this,

The purpose of this thread is to gauge interest, so if you would like a shirt, have other ideas, comments, have a more creative design or know of a cheaper place for embroidery, feel free to reply. If there is enough interest I will start another thread to take orders.

Bingara logo most likely copyrighted, you probably should check on that [may be able to get approval to use it based on promoting the area and as it is for a non profit cause].

Lighter color a good idea.

Would screen printing on the back be more obvious than embroidery on the pocket area? [although embroidery lasts longer than screen printing, in most cases].

The RFDS seems to be the choice for fund raising each year so far [and it is one that is worthy for motorcyclists].
Have you thought of building in a "donation" component to the cost? ie. $40 (approx) for shirt + $5 donation to go to RFDS.

This gathering will arrive quicker than most expect [time flies as they say :fineprint: ].
:hurray:

I think your idea is good. Embroidery on the pocket on a plain white shirt gets my vote. The shirt should be of a good quality material, a cotton blend is better than plain cotton. My preference is for a collared shirt for sun protection reason. Or an embroidered patch which can be home sown on. Either way I like your design but as Ock says check the legals.
I'm a 50/50 starter for the meet.

Thanks for the feedback. Permission has been granted to use the Bingara logo. No problem with including a donation to the RFDS.
The JB Adults - Polos by JB's wear® shirts are quite good quality for the price, they are 65% polyester and 35% cotton. They are hardwearing last for years, seem to grow out of them before they wear out. I agree a plain white would look good too. However white will show up all the beer, rum and tomato sauce stains, so i thought grey might be a better option.

Good progress Ian. :thumbup:

I'm in for one as well, grey is good.

Sizing will be interesting, in some brands I'm a Large in others an Extra Large.
The shoulder sizing is my issue, a bit broad [I'm working on increasing the rest of me to match, now where did I leave my beer and that third meat pie :confused:
:green_lol:

I hope this helps Ock. I laid out a JB shirt (just happen to have one in the cupboard) which is XL and placed the Urunga shirt (which Mr Farkles made) also an XL, over the top of it and the width and length are identical.

Ok, I can check on that, my Urunga shirt is in the wardrobe [showing signs of lots of use though now :yikes: ].

Yep p38 can you send me the details and I will look into it. Are they a loose sleeved shirt and do they have a minimum order amount?

Grey would suit my beard and white my bike. Either colour suits me. A XXL is my size.

Mrs Wacko and I were thinking of doing a shirt as well
we can do embroidery ( we have a supplier we use) or screen printing...$60.00 is very exspensive
the Urunga T's were done on a direct to gament printer...not very successful
infact bloody shocking..mine looks like crap no offense th Mr farkels
we also did the last lot of T's for Austouring.com and did the sticker's for the last gathering
if you like to contact me very PM I will give you a call
JB's are good shirts

cheers
Wacko and Mrs Wacko
