I think $15 sounds cool. It would depend on what's on it, though. I wouldn't want to buy a blank shirt with a tiny graphic, after all.

Thats what I was thinking before I entered the topic, so I'm going to agree with Aero.

Anything less than $20 sounds good to me! So I'll go with the current majority: 15 :D

For something pretty simple, like a logo, with 1-2 colors, I would say 12, but for something a little more robust, 15. But I would probably pay 15-20 for a shirt as long as I liked it...

I like getting good deals on stuff. I don't get why in the world people spend so much money on clothes and other things that they could get for cheaper prices that do exctly the same thing as the expinsive thing does, such as $100+ on a pair of shoes. So $10 sounds good to me.

As much as I want it to be Free, I'd say about 15 dollars is a good price. I'd wear it to school everyday. I dont care if it'll reak, I have TSG spirit. :mrgreen:

Honestly, I think that anything between 10-20 sounds fine. If its just a shirt with like a gray background and a black TSG or The Speed Gamers spelt out,the I wouldnt pay more that 12, but if it is something really awsome like a bunch of videogame characters, an eyecatching background maybe even tiedye, and with a speedgamers logo, the I would go 20 easy. You should give them away during the marathon.

...I dont care what anybody says. Tyedie rules!

I don't think you want to devalue the t-shirt Phil. :?
Now your hat, that's a different story :D

Phil, then when people see your giant face, they'll go running. BUT the girls will go crazy and buy them like "Daddy! Buy me this Phil shirt. I like want it!" Then the dads are gonna search for you and start a riot.

What about some sort of discount? Perhaps make it 15 default, but 12 if you donated during the last marathon? Or would that be too hard to keep track of?

$15 seems like a good price. I'd much rather pay $12 though.

i think we should probably be based on size going 2 dollars up by each size

How much for an autographed one?

Then we already know the answer to how it'll do, because the Hat'll hipnotize us all, on the shirts, to make us buy like 3 shirts each. Best Way to make money.

Depends on the size but $11-15

I believe 12 dollars is acutally a VERY reasonable price. Not too cheap, not too expensive. I mean, I hate seeing a regular t-shirt with...super mario on it and it cost like 20 bucks :?

Of the prices listed on the poll, I think $15 is just right.

Well you're lucky then because it was $12 (http://store.thespeedgamers.com/). :)

Actually since Britt hasn't mentioned it yet, how would everyone feel if a different colour t-shirt were a couple dollars more? White is the cheapest and that's what we started with, but to order black, for example, the cost would be higher from the producer.

I wouldn't be suprised at all. If it's necessary to do so, then I'm all for it. A plain one (likw the current ones) are at a good price. Coloured ones would probably be around 15, I guess. Not much of a huge difference. I just want to see them in the store for sale. XD

I think its based on the materials. Say shirt A costs oh... $10 and to get the logo printed it costs $2. Well then there's $12 easy for one shirt. Well 12x50= $600 easy. So if you sale shirts at $10 then you're losing money, so best bet would be to see how many shirts it'd take to make a profit... persay... we sold each shirt at $15... 600/15=40 so it'd take 40 shirts to earn any money. really like I said it depends on the costs to make and purchase each shirt, then based on that should the price be set.

plain math:
A=12
O=50
A12xO50=$600
15x X= $600+?

BTW: These are not set numbers, and the tax for the purchase of each shirt was not included. I also did not include shipping.

i wonder if we can order shirts and not have it so quick a delivery @.@ cause over night shipping costs more

That would be a great idea kmm, unless someone requests it, then they should pay a little extra due to the shipping costs.

ya i m saying if were going to raise the price of shirts we're gonna have to make the shipping more affordable because paying 15 dollars then another 8 just seems expensive for just one @.@ but if you have shipping that takes longer it'll be like 3 or 5 idk but i know it'd be cheaper that way it'd be more fair with the shirts pricing, and idk it'd be a good idea but maybe diffrent pricing for sizes, like get a base size and cost and then add 2 dollars each size up or something like that, cause it might be a great deal for someone buying a 4x but it'll seem little unfair for someone buying a small .......


@.@ just saying i m poor i need the cheapest way to go _awesome_

also maybe we'll have a coupon thing, idk maybe 5 dollars off for every 30 or 40 dollar donation you make @.@ it might inspire more people to donate and they'll get a coupon (which will mean more once there is more items in the store they'll want to buy) (maybe limit the coupon thing to 1 or 2 per marathon add some dates it can be used etc.)

_awesome_

In all seriousness, though, I'm kind of overdrawn right now, so I'd have to say $10. Plus I'm pretty tiny, so yeah. But I would pay more for a different color. Me and white don't really mix. XD

*slaps forehead* I should've checked the date when this thread was started. I thought they were still discussing shirt prices even after the store went up (this is why I shouldn't be online at 4 in the morning XD)

But $12 plus the cost of shipping was a reasonable price too. As for increasing the price for a shirt of a different color other than white it makes sense to do that if obtaining said shirt color were more expensive than obtaining white shirts, so if that's the case, I'm down for that.

just checking the 8 dollars accounts for all shirts you buy right @.@ cause if we come out with colors i'll get more than one and mix it up

I thought the $12 price was a good one. It would have been nice to have some options for shipping but I can't complain. I probably would have requested the fastest shipping anyway, but I can see why some people would like to see cheaper prices on shipping.

$15 but lower the shipping a tad.

Somewhere around 10-20 is okay, I voted for $12
