I've arranged with Phoenix Embroidery in Topsham, ME to have shirts produced with the Geocaching Maine logo and the lettering around the logo like the existing shirts some of you may have seen. The lettering is over the top: "The way caching should be" and below the logo: "GEOCACHINGMAINE.ORG". The ability to have a namedrop on the shirt is available.
Over the past several months, several members have been working on customized shirts for Geocachingmaine.org members. In addition to several vendor searches, methods of ordering and delivery were looked at as well, hoping to make it as easy and affordable for members. Well, snags, delays and technical issues kept coming up so a more simpler approach was made. Many vendors were suggested and several contacted. Of course many feel their suggestion was the best; in the end I selected a vendor who responded quickly, has a long established history of being in business, is located in Maine, actually asked for the opportunity to do business and offered several choices I felt were important such as no minimum orders and the ability to bring in your own items for customizing.
So, here are the details:
Brand: Outer Banks (others are available at same price)
Style: Polo, cotton pique
Colors: Please follow link for colors: Bimini Blue, Black, Bright Red, Bright Royal, Butter, Corporate Blue, Jade, Light Blue, Moss, Natural, Navy, Pine Green, Purple, Putty, Sports Gray, Spring Green, Tangerine, White, Wine.

If members would like to have an article of their own embroidered, they may do so at Phoenix at a cost of $ 8.50. You are responsible for contacting and delivering the item to Phoenix after our initial order.
Now for the fine print:
The initial order is on a prepaid basis. I will be placing an order for shirts on August 10, 2010, so any shirt ordered must be paid in advance. There will be no "hold one for me" or "sign me up for one". Payment may be by check or cash, receipted. Contact me thru a pm or email me thru my profile. When the order arrives, I'll notify everyone to make arrangements for pickup or delivery, I am in both the Bangor area and the Topsham area during the week. Expected delivery is approximately 2 weeks after the order is placed.
I'm sure there are questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
