    Embroidered merchandise

    A range of merchandise sporting an embroidered Turbosport logo is now available.
    The logo is on the left breast of items (apart from the hat )
    It measures approx 100mm (width) x 20mm (height),
    The first ones we had done were in either
    gold/white



    orange/white



    Personaly I prefer the orange/white version. It stands out better.

    The arrangement we have means we need a mininmum order of just 6 items. This means as soon as we have requests for a total of six items we can get them done. This is any mix of items, ie 2 hats, 1 hoody 2 polo shirts, 1 fleece. It takes one week from the order being placed at the suppliers until the items are ready.
    Payment by Paypal is preferred as I don't get much time to cash cheques. If you do not have Paypal this is not a big problem.
    Any money made from selling the merchandise goes entirely towards the funding of this site.
    Thank you for your support.
    The ones I have posted so far were delivered the next day.

    I have been to the suppliers today, all orders that have been placed so far will be dispatched tomorrow.

    Sew on patches are not available at this time, sorry.

    The suppliers have now said they need the embroidery colours to be the same on 6 items. ie. orange/white or gold/silver. Or any other combination, as long as there are 6 the same.
    Their machine does 6 at a time, changing colours for less items than this costs them too much time.

    Re: Embroidered merchandise

    Unfortunately there has been very little demand for any embroidered merchandise.
    Amongst other things, the main aim of the merchandise sales was to help contribute towards funding the running of the site. The low volume of sales has not done that, in fact after costs are taken into account it is hardly profitable.
    In view of this the offer has been suspended.
    The supplier is still set up to fill any orders, so if you, or a group of you ask me for an order of 6 items, all with the same colours in the logo, I am still happy to sort it for you. It must be 6 items though.
    Many thanks to those that have purchased, your support is much appreciated.

    Err 6 is a few too many! Thanks anyway. Would they do one for me if I went down there myself and asked? ;-)

    I doubt they are any more likely to do one for you than they are for me.
