See www.javaranch.com/emb.jpg
We're making some JavaRanch shirts. This image shows a t-shirt - but since the material is kinda stretchy, there are some gps in the artwork.
We're going to put these on some twill shirts and maybe some denim shirts. We're giving them to several of the moderators and sheriffs that have made the greatest contributions over the last year.
We're thinking of having a few extra made. Depending on the cost of shipping, the shirts, etc., the cost should be something around $35 to $45 per shirt.
Is anybody interested in something like this?

Great idea! I suggest that these be of minimal "business casual" quality.

These will probably be denim or twill shirts (or maybe a mix of both). Definitely with a colar. Definitely good for work.
We've been talking about it for a while in the Moderator's Only forum. There might be a golf shirt or two too.
The question is - should we get extras for other folks or not? It's going to be a high cost per shirt.

Paul:
Definitely put me down for 2 if the price is in the $70-$80 range (total cost). I take XL or XXL. Would love to wear them to work.

Ill take one as well. Maybe if i wear a "Java" shirt, that will make learning the language a bit easier. Maybe it could make me a better programmer. Kinda like a good luck charm, only this would be a "god i hope this helps" charm.

We can ship anywhere, but naturally we'll pass the cost on to you.

We just ordered a pile of shirts. They should be here in a week. Then we take them to be embroidered. Maybe another week?
We got a great deal on excellent shirts. "Stone" color (off white). Button down collar twill shirts with long sleeves.
We will probably be able to ship them in the US for about $35.
I'm not sure what overseas shipping costs. Probably $10 more.

3x to 4x is for a person who weighs over 200 kilos (not 200 lbs)

Any news on the availability and ordering procedure for these shirts? I will take two at 2x whenever available.

Send e-mail to brendawheaton@yahoo.com to get a shirt. She'll tell you what shirts we have now and how much they cost and how to go about paying for one.
