Sorry for the delay to all. Be assured they are coming. We hope to have the order placed in the next day or two and then they will be on their way out.

Soooo, I can still place an order for this batch?

Absolutely, just make sure to place it rather quicker than slow to be sure your specific size(s)/color(s) are accounted for in the order.

Hats and hoodies please

We will branch out to more items eventually.  We need to recoup the initial costs of the shirts though.  We don't have infinite funds to drop into appeal stock unfortunately.

I thought the apparel offering websites didn’t require upfront costs and only took a fee when someone ordered something. Ala https://www.spreadshop.com or teespring. Even if someone bought say a tee shirt for $20 hopefully $5-$10 of that could float right to the VGS expense account and no one had to do anything except upload the designs. No money laid out.

BA and doner can speak better to this than I as they're in charge of the apparel, but my understanding is that we've gone with a vendor that we (doner) know and trust makes good quality stuff. We went with a relatively large order to save money per shirt so we can pass that on to you all, while also funding the site a bit (I believe $20 shipped anywhere is pretty reasonable, considering shipping one shirt to me from the States would normally cost me, the buyer, $15 for shipping alone).

With a service like SpreadShop we're making commission on sales (generally 10-20% of revenue); that'd be like a dollar per shirt; our way the site gets much more money in the virtual coffer.

There are pluses and minuses.  Doing a quick look at spreadshop, the shirts are about double the price for similar quality, you pay for that simplicity and convenience.  We would either need to raise the prices a lot or make nothing off of them. 

Perhaps it could be an option for something we wouldn't expect to sell a lot of, and people might be willing to pay a little more.  Something to look into as I didn't know that type of thing was even an option.  We just researched the traditional method of placing a large upfront order.

It sounds like the vendor option was the best choice for a clearly higher demand item, and something that would be more desired should have those pluses you mentioned in terms of item quality and it’s ability to help the site. Maybe more specialty items would make sense for those commission-based sites, like hats and pins.

I’m holding out hope for the Casual Cart fashion line.

The t shirts being an upfront order made sense. If other odd and ends wanted to be made available while making a couple bucks on each sale I think that is low risk especially with no upfront cost.

I’m supportive either way lol

Oh fellow vgsers.  I must say it is a super soft material and I just received them.  This will be the first thing I reach for when she is clean!  Pretty sure this will be my new favorite shirt!!!!
