  • Hola me LLamo Grant
There's been talk of it for a while and a fair few have asked about so I've been looking into it with a couple of companies.

Without the benefit of 'economies of scale' which means a company or charities ability to get a really low price per unit if they order a minimum amount in 1000s.....

It's proving tricky..

As many know the yellow t shirts were sold at cost then at a loss to get rid of them and I still have a couple left  ::)

So I'm trying to get the best deal before offering them to you guys and girls.

1. So far ive ordered a sample on which has cost me a total of £31 to buy  :o although that did include a one off design fee or something  ??? Also it's embroidered logos rather than print.

I'm waiting to find out what subsequent ones will cost!

2. The second company it looks like I'd be able to sell on their zip hoodies at £25 each which is better but still higher than I'd like.

I've not looked at the cheaper zipless ones as they'r not really practical for our hobby.


Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Anyone want 1000 so I can get the price down  ;D

Update:

The test hoodie arrived and they sent me the zipless one lol which I'll be wearing on Sunday!

I did get an apology and a bit of a concession in that they will give me Zipper style with embroidered logos so no worry about transfers getting ironed off or peeling cos the washing machine is to hot for the price I was going to get the transfer ones for, therefore it looks like £25 for a PRE ORDERED Zipper Hoodie with All embroidered logo. (based on a minimum order by me of 12) any I have to pay in advance for will cost slightly more or I'll keep em and wear em everywhere I go  :P

I'm going with the traditional Lion rampant badge on the front and detectingscotland.com embroidered on the back

I'll put a picture of the 'wrong' hoodie below lol future ones will have the zipper!

Anyone want to pre-order? First 12 will come with a Free Snood  :o and the first TWO XL hoodies ordered will come with a free Yellow DS 2014 tee shirt also in XL.  :o

1. AJS67 (M) free snood PAID
2. Shug100 (L) free snood
3. Haggy (L) free snood
4. danny465 (tbc) free snood
5. Spectra (XL) free T and snood
6. MarkA (XL) free T and snood PAID
7. EleanorF (M) free snood PAID
8. Teejay36uk (XL) free snood PAID
9. Fraxis1985 (L)
10. Maks_k123 (XL)

I'd like one but not sure what size to go for.  My DS t-shirt is Lge and fits me like a... a t-shirt. :D   A Lge size hoodie may be too big though so I'll need to try one on.

The blue DS tee shirts sizes were weird I've always been an L but needed XL with those.

I'll have my XL hoodie with me on Sunday if you want to try it.
