Title: CANCELLED 10th Anniv. Larrivee Forum Shirts
Post by: tuffythepug on August 05, 2013, 08:28:38 PM
Ok.   We talked about this a bit in another thread and there seemed to be some interest so let's just do it.

If you are interested in signing up for a commemorative Larrivee Guitar Forum 10th anniversary shirt please respond to this post and let's see if we can get enough people to commit to one.   I need to order a minimum of 50 shirts to keep the price at $20.   These are not T-shirts like the previous forum shirts.  These are light gray polo shirts so they are a little bit more classy and you can wear them to the golf course or other places where a T might not be appropriate.

Only one color (gray) and one style (SS polo) is being offered.   sizes S,M, L, XL, XXL will be available.  Price:  $20 plus shipping

Here is a mock-up of the shirt.    A better illustration will be provided when we're sure we will have enough orders.   The text will read:  "Larrivee Guitar Forum 10th Anniv   2003-2013" on the front left breast

If we get enough people expressing interest I'll post instructions for placing orders, payment, etc.   Price is expected to be $20 with sufficient quantity of orders.
I have yours and Kurt's size on file from the previous shirt order.  :thumb

C'mon Rob.  Imagine if you would have had one of these 10th anniversary polo shirts on during this gig.  You would have looked even more cool.

   Hello to my friends on the Forum! I've been inactive as far as social media goes but pop in here occasionally.
   I'm down for one of these, having missed the cool tee-shirts. Agree with Rob about the Polo-style, more of a tee-shirt guy? Wish there were both options. I'd get one of each!
   Sent a PM to Tuffy about size. Will wait for more info?
   Just picked up the OOO-60 ('07) from Jim Holler's site. What an incredible guitar!
   Now need to do 2 reviews on my new Larrivees, the other the OM-03ZZ, another amazing Larrivee. I'm in love again!

I'm in for one.  I'll be out of town for a couple weeks starting this weekend so don't take a lack of response as backing out.  I'll have limited i'net.  I'll catch up once I get back to town.

Well I seem to have severely over-estimated the amount of interest in this venture.   

So I will leave the topic open for a few more days and if we don't get much in the way of response I'll just shut it down and forget it,   It's not like I needed the headache anyway.

I was thinking...  you've done this once.  What, are you a glutton for punishment?

Seriously, if I could, I'd be happy to help but my time is spread too thin already.  The time you put into the last effort is still appreciated.

 :laughin:   Ed, no, I'm not a glutton for punishment.   I admit that the Forum T-shirt project was way more time-consuming and tedious than I ever imagined it would be but I learned quite a bit from the experience.    Since I had developed a way to handle the orders, get the product made, collect the money and get stuff processed and delivered, I thought this time might be a little bit easier.    There seemed to be interest in a 10th anniv. forum shirt so I willingly volunteered to manage it.   But I'm not inclined to enthusiastically promote this project when only a few members want to be involved.    I'll give it another few days but I'm thinking now that there just isn't sufficient interest to continue.

I'm a little late to this party having just joined a few months ago, so I missed the previous (and very nice) shirts. any way to get one of those (I'm ducking now, since I understand it was an ordeal  :winkin:)

bargemule.    The black Forum T-shirts are gone.  We only ordered the quantity we needed to fill requests at the time.   There won't be any of those available unless we do another run of them  in the future.   Again, we would need about 50 confirmed shirts ordered to make it happen.   I can put you down for  a 10th anniv. shirt if you want one of those.  We're still taking signups for those.   Let me know if you want to be included in this project.

I'm also in, tuf...

...I suspect more folks would jump on the bandwagon if they could find this thread - I think it ought to be moved - and pinned to the top - of the acoustic guitar forum, since it gets the most traffic. You might want to tag a seperate thread in the Larrivee electric forum, too.

Sometimes I don't check in for a couple days, and when I do, I usually only check those two forums - I suspect other folks do the same. You're probably missing a big part of the market for these having this thread in this forum. 

Just a thought...  :thumbsup

Mikey, I moved the topic to this forum as you suggested.   Let's see if it generates more interest here.   :wink:

Perhaps there would be more interest in a tee shirt? Something like the 40th anniversary shirts with the cool JLC logo in the middle.

We just did the T-shirts - where were you?  :wink:

The variety is a good thing - I'm sure the next one (maybe designed around Larrivee's upcoming 50th Anniversary) will be a 'T' again.

$20 for a polo is a good deal, and you can wear them for a lot of occasions where a T-shirt wouldn't be 'enough'.  :whistling:

Due to the underwhelming response to the 10th anniv. Larrivee Forum Shirt idea it will be officially cancelled and laid to rest on Sept 5 unless there is a big surge of interest at the last minute.    I figured I'd give it a month but after 3 weeks we don't have nearly enough participants to proceed.  I over-estimated the amount of interest there would be for something like this.

Thanks to the 20 members who did show support for it.   Unfortunately you (we) were in the minority

wondering if there are electronic files for the artwork for the previous shirt, which I missed by a couple of months. if so, could you possibly send them out? we have a shop in town that will put anything on a shirt with the right file.

I'm afraid we were only authorized by the Larrivee family to use the Larrivee logo and the Larrivee label on that specific project.  anything else would be a violation of their copyright.   Any T-shirt company that would use a logo without express written permission from the owner of that logo would be risking a lawsuit.     

There will be another opportunity for those who missed out to get one of those shirts at a later date.  Watch for details.
