Well, we've lots and lots of people ask on a weekly basis, and it seems like a good idea, just like we do all the stickers, decals, graphics and wheel centres on a bespoke basis............why not shirts, hoodies, bags and other apparel?

I've got all the designs and ideas that I've used for graphics, and most translate quite well into clothing and other types of apparel.

My eco-solvent printer can produce designs that can be heat transferred onto fabrics, and with the addition of some very clever dye sublimation witchcraft we can do a whole bunch of other stuff too.

The Mrs will be doing most of the making - its her way of returning to some form of work now she has the big thumbs up after her recent illness, and as things take off little helpers will come on board to support us.

Designs can be totally bespoke, you name it we can do it all over again, but I'll probably put a bunch of ideas and designs on the website to get things off the ground :lol:

there are concerns over falling foul of the BMW brand police, so we've prepared these also just in case......

Great idea, liking the 1275GT stripe and ingenious basterds designs, the wording doesn't quite work on the BMW ones, but I like the idea.

Not to sure on pricing, depends on lots of things, but would like to see some made up.

I'll be mocking up some designs in the next week or so, and for full-on production, the heat presses should be with us by the end of the month :lol:

Price I would say between £10 and £20. Depends how good a t-shirt you start with and how long they last

I'm a tight wad - so the target price we're aiming for is going to be sub £10.00 for the T's, and sub £15.00 for basic hoodies, and sub £18.00 for fancy hoodies .

cookie showed me a website where you could order quite good designs but T's were 14.00, and hoodies were £22.00 - that seems a bit steep for me :lol:

quality will be fruit of the loom standard ( mainly because my mom worked there for 20 years and still gets staff discounts :lol: )

Those prices seem fair enough, dooderwear ones are $20 I think. Had hoodies made for uni rugby team which I think were £18 or £22 with a zip

Sounds great Roofless, I'll be having a think about what bespoke design I might like on a hoodie. Also be good to see some photos as and when you've got some done and around to photograph?

Good work :lol:
