Goodaye everyone. Phil (The Mariner) has been unable to get the manufacturers of the forum's previous merchandise to release the artwork. To save some time I have decided to again utilise them. I contacted them today about costings ect but at this stage have not yet had a reply. I am basically at this stage just letting you know we will be doing a run of shirts and some stickers for the first time. Alternatively if you think that they suck and the logo should be changed please voise your opinions also.

I would imagine that pricing would be similar as last time. I have copied the details from when Phil did the last lot in December 2005 and would assume the style and price would be the same or similar. I am also thinking about some Long sleeved T-shirts offering superior sun protection if enough interest is expressed. Here are the details I copied from Phil’s Last production run;

A.K.F.F. shirts feature a small logo embroidered onto the front left breast area and a larger printed graphic on the back.

We offer several shirt choices for both men & women.

For the Ladies.

Short sleeve fitted poly/cotton crew-neck T shirt in sizes 8 (44cm bust)/10 (46cm bust)/12 (48cm bust)/14 (50cm bust) and 16 (52cm bust) @ $22.00 ea. Order code LSST.

Short sleeve poly/cotton polo shirt, UV rated SPF25 in sizes 8 (47cm bust)/10 (49cm bust)/12 (51cm bust)/14 (53cm bust)/16 (55cm bust)/18 (57cm bust) and 20 (59cm bust) @ $28.00 ea. Order code LSSP.

For the Men..

Short sleeve 100% cotton crew-neck T shirt in sizes S/M/L/XL/XXL and XXXL @ $22.00 ea. Order code MSST.

Short sleeve poly/cotton polo shirt, UV rated SPF25 in sizes S/M/L/XL/XXL and XXXL @ $27.00 ea. Order code MSSP.

Long sleeve poly/cotton polo shirt, UV rated SPF25 in sizes S/M/L/XL/XXL and XXXL @ $33.00 ea. Order code MLSP.

Mens sizing is S (53.5cm chest), M (56cm chest), L (58.5cm chest), XL (61cm chest), XXL (63.5cm chest) & XXXL (66cm chest).

Important: The bust/chest measurements are of a shirt laid flat & measured side-to-side. To confirm your size, please measure an existing shirt you wear now.

Colours available are black, white, royal blue and red. Regular postage is an additional $5.00 for 1-2 shirts, $8.50 for 3-4 shirts or add $2.00 if you'd like Express Post.

Our supplier needs a minimum of 5 shirts of any type or colour to do a print run so if I don't have your choice available I'll take orders until the minimum quantity is reached, then order them all together. Please allow 2-3 weeks delivery from when I have min. 5 shirts if I don't have your shirt in stock.

All payments will need to be made at time of order, so please PM me with your order (shirt order code, colour & quantities), postal address & postage method & I'll advise payment details.

A.K.F.F. kids shirts feature a small logo embroidered onto the front left breast area and a larger printed graphic on the back.

Short sleeve 100% cotton crew-neck T shirt in sizes 4 (37cm chest)/6 (39cm chest)/8 (41cm chest)/10 (43cm chest)/12 (45cm chest) & 14 (47cm chest) @ $20.00 ea. Order code KSST.

Important: The chest measurements are of a shirt laid flat & measured side-to-side. To confirm your size, please measure an existing shirt your child wears now.

Colours available are royal blue and red. Regular postage is an additional $5.00 for 1-2 shirts, $8.50 for 3-4 shirts or add $2.00 if you'd like Express Post.

Scott,

Good on you for getting this going again.

I have plenty of shirts but would really like AKFF patches to put on the shirts I wear fishing. I think a few others would be in the same position. If we did a run of embroidered patches I would buy at least three, maybe five. I've bought them from other fishing forums in the past. I think we could sell a few @ $10.00, which should leave a little bit for the hosting charges.

Unfortunately, due to the change in ownership of this web site and the lack of response by the owners to my requests to remove my email address from all administrative-level notifications and functionality, I have decided to remove my posts on AKFF. Thank you for the great times, the fantastic learning experiences and the many many fish.

Love the logo, but it'd be nice if we had a version that can be scaled a bit bigger..
Where there is only one size to buy, for me the small size has more uses, as a patch; covering shirts, hats and blazer, and will fit most pockets

Scott I don't understand. If the manufacturers of the T shirts came up with the design of the logo then it's fair they keep it. But if one of us on the forum came up with the design, then by rights it is ours, and we decide who should manufacture the shirts for us. For all they know, we might think the shirts are crap and want to take our business somewhere else. The logo relates to OUR forum and OUR club, not their T shirt printing company. I just don't understand how they can hold onto our artwork... :?: :?: :?:
Cheers

Scott: I think Simon has a point. However, whatever the result I will be in it, prefer long sleve though.

That's a very good point Simon.
I designed the FishYak as part of a competition early on in the forum's life and Phil added the Aussie map to give the finishing touch. So, that to me would mean we (AKFF) own the copyright for the logo.
The artwork is probably a different story but we should be able to reproduce the logo via any manufacturer shouldn't we?

By the way, I got a red long sleve version in the first round and where it every trip :D

The logo should be able to be reproduced fairly easily. As Rod and Simon have mentioned, Phil simply employed a second party to print that particular logo, not design it. I understand if they wont release their artwork, but it should be an easy item to scan.

I missed the last 2 orders and will definately place an order for 2-3 shirts in the next run.

I don't want to get on to a soap box, but I think that as a matter of principle we should not give them the business. Apart from holding onto OUR artwork, I seem to remember that Phil went through hell to get the first batch of T shirts printed and sent to us. The poor guy was constantly battling with the printers, and eventually we got them. Doesn't seem very professional to me. If everyone can wait a bit longer and it's not too much hassle, I don't think we should give them our hard earned money. Where do they get off holding us to ransom like this? We should consider using someone else. And if they so much as use our artwork, or something similar for another client....well...bring it on... :evil:
Cheers

Guys, I have got a copy of the logo from Phil, but to save time and hassle I thought I would at least get a quote from the old printers prior to getting new artwork done. I am still of the opinion that since Phil paid them to do the artwork it belongs to Phil but he told me he has asked them twice. He also told me you have to keep on at them to get it done but I think it may be worth doing with them this time so we can get something arranged quickly. Once I get one in my possession I will try a few of the local alternatives so it is easier for me to give them some stick if they are being slack.

Red,

You make a Canberra boy proud. I can confirm that tail is not a Burley Griffin Carp!

Keep up the good work.

MacYak3 is on the money mate, in the earlier ones the fish overshadowed the yak part, whereas this is a better balance of yak and fish....welldone

Scott if you can get me the images, I can get a quote off of the guys who do our stuff here at work. We get a pretty good rate, as they are really hungry for my mob's business, especially when we are talking about uniforming up 600 odd people. So I am sure I can get a reasonable rate, it will be worth a try at least :wink:

Let me know if you want me to give it a bash and I will PM you my e-mail?

Blaen, I can see your email address with my admin privileges. I will get you to enquire if you don't mind. I can email you the logo or we can use the new improved version if people think it is better.

Can I get you guys to comment on this graphic below I have been playing with? I based it on the shirts that my brother in law used to do for the dive shop he part owned at Byron and they were very popular. I figure they may appeal to some of the younger members. His was called the Sundive Pirate Club where I have called this the AKFF Pirate Paddlers. If you have any suggestions for improvements, think they totally suck or think they are OK please voice your opinions below.
