after the T-shirt re-print we've no plans to do anything more along these lines. We don't want to set up a shop, or run a business. We will however be organising further fund-raising gigs....

No problem .... I'll get to work setting up a Marenest fundraising shop for Timmy then ... hurrah

Aw, bummer! I missed it. :(
The little man and a house shirt looks lovely!

Wish Cardiacs website would restock...

If you want a hand with t-shirt graphics I can turn my hand to Photoshop and Illustrator (well at least reproducing stuff as vector graphics at any rate). I'm no graphic designer, jack of all trades me, but if I can help in some small way...

That would be great. For now we are planning to use the graphics Whippersnapper made a few years ago for the badges.
But all ideas are welcome.

All ideas indeed welcome. I've begun the set up and hopefully we should have a Maresnest shop open soon. I'm going to test run the Timmy picture first. How do you guys feel about £5 going to Tims fund on each one so the T-shirt would end up being £13-14 plus postage?

No problem. If any of your existing graphics need cleaning up or modifying just pm me.

Is there a repository for existing graphics or photos of previous merchandise? I would like to see some examples, might give me some ideas...

We had these for a short time and with Tim's permission. Designed by Whippersnapper and skillfully crafted by Chinners.

It will be nice to hopefully find a few new people out and about with the new t-shirts. I wish i hadnt got rid of my old tatty ones but at that point i never thought you wouldnt be able to get any through the site :(

I wonder which person has the most t-shirts and how many?

I'm down to 2 now ::( though considering I was down to one until the benefit gig I'm better off now than I was :)

Mrs z0mb13e assures me that she hasn't thrown out my old t shirts, so I should have a bunch of them somewhere... I still have my woolly hat though!

Only 5 for me. This new one, a yellow flower from about 23 years ago and a white flower from the around 2003 when i also bought two childrens little man and a house T's for my two lads. My girlfriend uses the larger 10 years of age one now! (she isnt 10 be the way!)In Belch's book he has a list of his T-shirts and he has as many as the gigs he attended by the length of the list!

Wow reckon it must be Belch then, If he bought one at every gig then thats got to be a winner. I tried to get something at every gig so would have about 20 things from a watch to cds or posters. I think my oldest tee is now getting close to 25 years old ! So if belch has the most ...who has the oldest ?
