Clem: Yes, you did the shirt properly. =) I'ts ordered, expect a picture of me, proudly wearing my shirt, in 11 days from now. Or so.

Ok, seems like I can give up to 5 persons $5 discounts (if you buy stuff for over $50), if you'we not ordered from there before. I will keep the page up for a couple of hours. If you consider buying, send me a pm with your email-adress and I'll send you a $5 discount. :3

Btw, cool that you use my avatar, but it's not flawless. Let me give you a better one, one that looks more consistent. :3

Is it possible to get a cheaper version of the Dark Shirt? I like that logo with nothing on the back, but I feel like $30 for one tshirt is a little outrageous.

Even if it's just a white shirt, like the value t-shirt, that's ok. If no one else is interested in it, don't worry about it. You don't have to do it just for me. Maybe I'll get a mousepad instead...but I WILL get something! I want to show my support!

I agree, the prices are very high. Unfortunately there's little we can do, most of the money goes to cafepress and we only add $5 to it. If we were to buy bulk tshirts and sell them ourselves we'd probably be able to sell them for $7 or $8, maybe $10 with shipping... we have the money to do this and to get some stock but it would take time to take orders, ship things out... and it's not something we want to spare our time doing :)

Eventually we might do that as once-offs, maybe just take names and take pre-orders and ship everything at once... or if we ever organize an event or a meeting, give away merchandising or sell them on site for very cheap.

The price here is quite high but the advantage is simple: we don't have to spend time on it, cafepress deals with orders, shipping and all the things we don't want to waste time doing. They're expensive but it's hassle free. So definitely not the cheapest way to get branded tshirts but one of the only ways where it doesn't involve us actively waste time away from developing the distro ;)
