    This is geared more towards the small and one man LCO's....

    Did you guys have your logo shirts embroidered?

    I am looking at some embroidedred golf shirts, and the setup fee for the machines blows my mind. This is the fee to have my logo punched so that the machines can read it. The per shirt fee is actually lower than I thought. But at the currently breakdown 1 shirt = $90. 2 shirts = 51.50 each. 3 shirts = 38.60 each and 4 = 32.25 each.

    I guess the first thing to ask yourself is when do you plan on wearing these?
    If you plan to use these shirts to work in, you might want to rethink things.
    Polo shirts are really hot to work in. Our first year we bought 24 of them. Don't remember the exact price but they were roughly $250.00 for 24. We got 12 white and 12 hunter green ones.
    We rarely wear these. Not even on estimates anymore. They are just too hot.

    For us, t-shirts with our name work out better for us. Much cooler to work in amd more comfortable.
    Just something for you to consider when making your choice.

    Polo's for me, and a couple for the men if they want to wear something nice.
    Tank tops for one guy that likes wearing them.

    Hooded Sweatshirts for everyone
    Knitted hats for everyone

    grass blaster,

    I had 10 done by my neighbor for 110.00 and they bought the shirts. Send me your e-mail address and I'll give it to them. They would be able to it for much less than that.

    On the T]shirts, are they screen printed or embroidered?

    Blades of Steel....did that include taking your logo, or did they create something for you?

    My email is mitchl@wave-net.net. I can't find yours....

    I had some ebroidered- They charged $100 just to get the logo onto the computer-
    I purchased the shirts and they did a shirt for around $8
    I just wnet to GAP and got some great shirts- very cheap

    Keep in mind- now they have your logo on file- so next time you don't have to pay the extra $100

    Ours are embroidered polo shirts and are VERY comfortable to work in. They are either an Ivory color with forest green collars and sleevebands (old ones), or white with the same color collars and sleeve bands (newer ones). Our logo os sort of "built right in" to the letters, so it didn't really cost anything for the set-up. Ours were around 12 to 15 bucks apiece, I believe, but they are Cross Creek and 100% cotton.
