No problem, take your time - you basically have ten days, still.

Let me see if I can't find a good sizing chart for Kai. I remember seeing it, but don't recall if it was on the printing company or Gildan's website. In either case, it's still going to be Imperial and not metric.

Here you go (with close-up)

tmp_11090-2015-05-08 15.25.02-1027299327.jpg
tmp_11090-2015-05-08 15.27.38-275112147.jpg


Please note that even though they are in the generic Gildan sizing chart, "5XL" & "YXS" are not available in this particular fabric (Gildan 8000 50/50 cotton/poly). Also, just a side note, most 100% cotton garments have shrinkage if just washed & dried normally, but 50/50 tends to not shrink as much.

I do see a few comments on the Gildan website indicating that this particular style runs a little small, and then again many others say it is mostly "true to size". I ordered one each color to see what we are going to be getting, and they will be here before I place the order.

No, American brand: Gildan (which my phone tries to put an 'e' in, so I am bound to have typed Gilden).

Thanks! Just keeping everyone up-to-date, I haven't received the samples and they are shipping today, so the initial order will be open until Tuesday or Wednesday so I can be absolutely certain that the flat black on dark heather is usable.

They suggested that I use "Sport gray" as opposed to Dark Heather, I added a Black on Sport Gray sample to the pre-order, so I am getting one each UC Lime Green & black on Dark heather and one black on Sport gray - which is a medium gray tone, halfway between "Ash" and Dark heather.

Sorry, I should have gotten this posted last week, but they sent the inquiry about black on dark heather possibly being too low contrast when I was at the Asheville Magic Festival last weekend, and Donna's aunt died this past week, so it has been an awfully busy and trying ten days...

When I have them early next week, I will post an update.

The black on sport gray sounds promising. Can't wait to see it. I bet I'll like the sport gray better than the dark heather.

I looked, and the production date slipped from Monday to tomorrow (14rh), and even though yesterday it showed they would ship today, it now shows Monday (19th).

In any case, I need to be certain that I don't order shirts you can't read. The picture I show in the order window was made using Dark Heather, but the contrast looks closer to what I see when I ordered the Sport Gray one. In any case, I will delay ordering until I have the single samples and post a picture.

Voting prior to opening up orders was 50/50 for black vice "UC lime green", but more orders are for the black imprint. In any case, I want to be absolutely certain what everyone gets is legible! (and not only under bright ligjts)

Re: UC Charter Member T shirts on order - NO ORDERS FOR NOW!

We are on track! The shirts were produced yesterday and show shipping on Monday, but my previous orders have all shipped at least one day before promised. Hopefully that means today, which also means that they should be at my post office for pickup Tuesday afternoon.

If that holds true, they will all ship on Tuesday (overseas) and Wednesday (domestic & Canada). Since US delivery is Priority Mail, they should be delivered to your doors by Monday, the 8th in the states. The foreign orders ship economy, because it couldn't see people paying 2½ times to get them earlier (Priority Mail International goes up 1-June to $25 for self printed and $26.25 if shipped at the post office without preprinting the labels with address and postage prepaid).

This changed this morning, which means that they were produced yesterday:

Shipping starts tomorrow!

The PlayDry material is fabulous! Thick, but breathes like there's nothing on... They are so comfortable! Superb job. One was obviously not up to their standards because I got a slip from their quality control people saying one UC Green "replacement" would be shipping separately.

Just a note, change in shipping order: I have already packed the first 8 shirts that were ordered before midnight the first day. Those go out early morning (Thursday). I will pack another 8 tomorrow and get them to the Post Office either tomorrow afternoon or Friday morning. The remaining 8 orders will be packed this weekend and hit the post Monday. U S (domestic) orders and overseas orders are not being done separately, they are being done in the order they were paid for instead. Tonight's packing includes orders on May 7th only, tomorrow I will pack May 8-10 and the last third will be packed over the weekend for shipment Monday. The 7 domestic t-shirts sent tomorrow morning should arrive Saturday or no later than Monday depending on where you are in the U S (some labels say "2-Day Priority", some say "3-Day") and the rest of the domestic U S orders during the week. International / overseas orders depend on customs & other haints. I mark those "Gift" with $15 value.

Since the orders were all placed online here, PayPal shipping label printing should automatically notify you of the tracking number (domestic) or customs ID (overseas).


4-June: This evening, I printed all of the rest of the shipping labels except for four international orders, which will be going out on Monday.
Everyone except those overseas who placed orders between the 10th and 13th should have their tracking numbers, now, and these nine packages will all be posted in the morning.

Re: UC Charter Member T shirts on order - NO ORDERS FOR NOW!

Unread postby Mike Ratledge » Sat Jun 06, 2015 9:39 pm  

Five of the last six packages were packed today to go out Monday. I still have one with an invalid address. That makes 30 packed with 36 shirts- three people ordered two, one person ordered four. The other pair were mine and Donna's.

Thanks, everyone! I will open up ordering here in about two weeks, and the last Charter Member T-Shirts will be available for two weeks and a couple days, because I will open ordering on a Friday and close it two weeks and two days later on a Sunday.

Overseas shipping will be $1 more, I had a few that were & 16 even for First Class. That's hard to believe to me, but obviously the postal service is trying to push everyone up to using a few dollars more for Priority International at $25 worldwide as of 30-May. They varied from $10.30"going to Britain up to $16 for Italy and for some reason Australia which is the farthest away was right in the middle at $13.

I would love to heat what people think about the quality once they are delivered. In my mind, we couldn't have done better. The 50/50 cotton/poly PlayDry blend is heavy enough yet breaths so well it feels like almost nothing.

Even though the survey was half and half for UC Green or Black, the orders were 3-ro-1 black. Next time I will likely stick with black, since ordering two color imprints required two separate orders. We can have black imprint on lime fabric added in a single tønder, so I will change the order form.

As a practical matter, only one shirt fits in the Small Flat Rate box for domestic shipping, so next time two shirts will require a Medium Flat Rate box - it holds four comfortably. For overseas it goes by weight and the quoted 6.3oz weight was way off. A single shirt varies from 9oz (small) to 16oz (4XL). That doesn't matter for domestic, but international definitely does matter. The heaviest overseas order was an XL at 16oz, so I used 13oz for all of them (bubble envelope adds an ounce. All overseas orders were packed inside a tare-proof Tyvek envelope and then in a padded bubble mailer.
