Synthetic 14ers.com Shirts on the way...

Postby BillMiddlebrook » Thu Feb 28, 2008 12:35 pm

I'm in the process of printing up a "test" batch of Patagonia Capilene short-sleeve shirts with the 14ers.com logo on the front. These are base-layer, silkweight shirts that would normally cost $30-$36 (unprinted) at retailers. I hope to price them around $30.

Hers is the shirt, without any printing:

Currently planned colors:

I'm starting with short-sleeve, but may add long-sleeve in the future...

Sweet! I like the "neptune" color, but the logo might go better with the nickel color. The white wouldn't be bad, either, but that wouldn't be my first choice for a baselayer color.

Awesome! I need a new base layer, mine is getting pretty ragged. I'd be even more interested in the long sleeve version.

I'm in for one. I've been wanting to wear a 14ers.com shirt hiking, but I never wear cotton (except the undies)...

Can't wait!

I'm always a sucker for more 14ers.com gear. Bring it on!

SWEET!

I'll be getting one of those 4 sure! would have gone 4 the synthetics right away - instead of the cotton- but cotton came first so now I'll have both. Another excellent marketing strategy and sales tactic by uncle Bill! make em' wait for the good stuff!

Put me down for at least one!

Nice! I vote for Neptune and Nickel.

May I also suggest putting the logo right in the middle, on the front? I think it looks better than the pocket position.

The first batch of 25 is being printed next week and I'm anxious to see the results. I already have some samples, but not with the logo applied. Once I get them, I'll be able to determine if I can include other shirt colors.

Patagonia Capilene is some of the best synthetic-wear out there, I just have to buy it in bulk to make it worth it. But even if I can make a couple of bucks off of each shirt, it will help cover costs.
