Hang on is that the embroidered for £15 Tony?

No the printed ones are £15, That's what iv paid anyway.
I understand that the embroidered ones are £20. But they do not have any at the moment. But if there is enough interest then they may do a run of them.

If they do a run then I will have one.

Here's a question - Obviously the embroidered T-shirts are more popular than the screen printed ones, why is this?

Also what else would you like to see? Richard's mentioned Polo's and we've talked about hoodies before.

Our plan is to produce a few more t-shirt designs so that there's a range of them, but at the same time it's worth us looking at the different products.

I think the printed ones are too in your face and a bit messy (sorry). Given the choice, I would much prefer the embroidered ones. They're more subtle and grown-up. Personally, I would fore-go the embroidery on the back too....especially if it makes the t-shirt cheaper.

The screen printed ones look like an advert, given away free at an event. The Embroidered ones look much more stylish like nike or any other designer product :)
Chalk and cheese in my book.

Because we're old, sorry, I mean mature, and the design with the embroidery with the logo is more subtle.

Also embriodery gives the impression it is a thicker t-shirt as I guess people have memories of having screen printed t-shirts that were spit through and embroidered that were thick. I am not suggesting that is the case here, only that is the kind of association that comes up for me and maybe others.

Hoodies sound good especially if in kids sizes.

On a personal note we try to go all cotton rather than synthetic mix due to micro fibre pollution.

BCUK Legend speaks of a ventile jacket I think?

I know there's some resistance to baseball caps by some here but a nicely embroidered cap in a nice colour may sell? Maybe an "interest list" survey like you did with the courses would give you an idea of what would fly and what wouldn't.

Not a fan of the design on the screen print ones, I liked the subtility of the older ones plus they did look much better quality (thickness wise).

I would buy a hoodie a too.
I also like the idea of a baseball cap.

Embroidered look far posher. The original ones I had lasted for ages and looked as good as the day I bought them

Screen prints tend to crack and come off after a while. The only exception I have found was the organic t-shirts Woodlore did a while back. Mine still look perfect.

Plus the design looks better, sometimes less is more.

I'm in for a couple if your doing another run :)
