...of actually making the FilmWise Stuff? I'd bet people here would buy it and crap. All proceeds going to support the Boyz, natch.

Not very. Frat assholes seem to have endless abilities to make cheap t-shirts. We've got a logo, we just need some apparel to stick it to.

We could get a price quote from DGH. Colors?

Of course, the Bay Area is close to the very worst place to start a retail venture intent on making a profit for the site.

There's got to be some place on the internet that just prints this crap on demand, doesn't there? Can't we get a whole sweatshop in NYC to make these things right when we order 'em?

I'd suggest golf shirts and boxer shorts for starters. Whenever possible have things look like they do on the Stuff page. Though I'm not wearing those briefs.

I'm guessing we could get 36 embroidered golf shirts for about $20 each. Sell them for $35 to FW'ers, keep a few bucks for S&H, and give the rest to the Boyz. I know I'd be in for one of whatever we ordered.

Can we get some sense of interest around here?

Added a poll. Left off "Wyoming" b/c I think you should take _this_ seriously.

We should probably also ask the Boyz if it's ok with them. Maybe we can buy them off with a free shirt**.





**with one paid shirt.

Just looked there. We could get a bunch of golf shirts for about $12.00 apiece, but I didn't see an embroidered option.

The embroidery would be pretty necessary, right? We don't want to look like a bunch of cheap amateurish jerques.

ePolos looks like they've got shirts for about $13.00, and embroidery for $3.95; shipping another $1.00 or so. $20.00/ea sounds realistic for the actual cost.

I would be more likely to buy a hat...

Something like these with an embroidered logo would be nice! I would be willing to help with setup fees for this.

I'd agree with that. A fitted hat would be outstanding.

I would not pay for the camouflage version.

For a fitted hat, I'd like to see this:

Image (except with a clear background) on the front and www.filmwise.com (in a font selected by bing) on the bottom back.

I'd think the polo would have the logo in the pocket area (though there would be no pocket there) with www.filmwise.com right below it.

Boxers would just have the logo in the front on the bottom left leg.

I'd be proud to wear a shirt that states "8/8 x weeks in a row".....

I think a coffee mug with FW on the front and the invisibles score on the back would be :5stars:

I am, of course, up for taking any sort of responsibility for this venture.

You could probably start by being our liaison to The Boyz to see if this is cool with them.

I'm definitely in. Also, although I'm crap at organizing stuff, I do seem to be fairly cash-flush at the moment, so could help ante up for any initial costs.
