    Banshee T-Shirts

    How pissed do you think the Banshee folks would be if I had a dozen banshee t-shirts printed and sold them for cost & shipping???

    My thought is either a dark grey-heather or black with black print (stealth and super stealth!) like this:

    Or this:

    Banshee T-Shirts

    I can't speak for Banshee, but I think that was the way Barspin was doing softgoods, with Banshee's knowledge and consent. I want a T-shirt, and if Keith's cool with it, I'm in. I don't really like the way heather Ts look, but I like your idea otherwise. I think it would look great on a solid dark gray shirt.

    I Emailed Banshee the following:

    I don't normally like my clothes to advertise for anyone, but for some reason I want a Banshee t-shirt.

    I was thinking of having one made for me, but it's expensive to have just one made, so I thought that if I had a few dozen made I could sell them for cost & shipping.

    Here are my two ideas, simple is better: Banshee T-Shirts

    Not sure if you condone such activities, but if you guys aren't going to bother producing something soon would you care if I had some made? If you want I could tack on a couple dollars to each shirt sold and send it to you!

    I like the gray, not as crazy about the black.

    I can think of three other people beside myself that would be interested. I like either style, but the stealth is badass.

    Do some searching around Unrooted, there were some pretty sweet ideas thrown around in a thread a while back on this same thing, might have been the Barspin stuff, can't remember.

    Lynx, I just found that one, I wouldn't personally wear anything I saw on that thread, also it doesn't appear as though Barspin is still doing the shirts.

    I normally wear plain black, gray or white tees, but I have seen some sweet stealth black logo on black tees that look like the frames that Banshee Makes.

    So if I get approval from Banshee then I'll need to ensure that I get 24 confirms and sizes. I prefer the second design but I like both colors. I think if we go with the same tee (brand) and can all agree on which design (the front only will be cheapest. . .) then I think I can get them for around $16 plus shipping. I would just use a Priority flat rate for $5.75 (I think they'll fit in that).

    I would be completely transparent about costs-I'm not trying to make a buck off of Banshee's back.

    The cost would cover:

    -T-shirt, around $10-13
    -Screen Design-around $50
    -California State Taxes-I have to pay it so you would "get to" as well!
    -Screen Printing-$3-4 per side for single color (I think)
    -Cost to ship to whatever lame town you live in from my lame town in California
    -Paypal Fee
    -XXL will probably be couple dollars more.

    What's the screen design fee for Unrooted? Ask as if it's just the vector image of the logo(s), I have them all, but more expect it's for creating the actual screen(s). I'd get one 'cept I don't really do Ts anymore since I found Cool-Wick type Ts, not down here in my climate at least.

    The Screen Design is to "burn" the screen that is used, it's a one time charge-so if people wanted a batch of seperate colors we wouldn't have to pay it again!

    I found the PDF you put on the other forum. If you want a cool wick tee I can ask about it.

    When I lived in Belize I found the polyester sport tees to just stick to me like cellophane, have you found better ones? I ended up wearing the lightest weight cotton tees I could find and the lightest color and weight cotton pants. Before that I always wore synthetics for climbing and biking! In the summer time here I only wear cheap white t-shirts, the sun is brutal in the Eastern Sierras.

    Like the second design better with banshee in front and logo on back. How about a fluroyellow or orange? My bike is stealth alrdy ideally I want to be wearing something bright to be seen...

    That said I am interested in the current design alrdy.

    We might be able to get any color you guys want, not entirely sure yet. I went to talk to the screen printer and surprisingly he is really busy. I'm going back on Friday, hopefully he can give me a solid quote for you guys. I won't be able to get the shirts printed until I get sizes, money and the design down.

    If you are dead set on getting one send me a private message through this site and I'll email you my paypal info-after I get the prices figured out. Also send me your countries info and I'll try to figure out the cost of shipping it to you.

    For Paypal I won't be doing that "send it as a gift" B.S., cause then the buyer has zero recourse if they feel like they got ripped.

    I'm thinking for shirts a lightweight cotton like this: Anvil Knitwear | Adult Lightweight Tee

    The screen printer will let me know what is similar and cheap! I have had several shirts made from the guy for work, I work for a County Agency, and he has always done good work in my opinion.

    A couple of years ago a users here made T shirts/jerseys and sold them at no profit and Banshee was supportive of it so I don't see why they would have a problem now.

    Banshee got back, and they haven't said no, yet.

    They did send me this link to show that they do have a few shirts, neither of which I would wear:Apparel - Trident Performance Sports
