First off, I want to thank all of you for putting up with my tweets and Facebook posts about these shirts. I’ve had a lot of orders, which is fantastic. To be honest, I’m just real excited about making running shirts. I’m a graphic and web designer, so excuse the inner nerd.

If you are wondering, they are costing me about $17 each, so I’m not in this for the profit, but for the thrill of making something for me (and us) to run in.
For future shirts, here is my plan:
- I’ll design a unique running shirt every 2-3 months
- I’ll take pre-orders during that time frame to (hopefully) get a decent quantity, keeping the price low.
- If I can consistently get 20+ orders, then I can afford to do this. If it looks like the demand is low, then the order might be cancelled and refunds issued.
- Luckily with these two, we came pretty close to what we needed. I’m also giving some out to friends as Xmas presents (and maybe a couple runner bloggers out there).
This seems to be the easiest way to help help keep the cost down and allow me to make one giant order and distribute after. If we had to print one at a time when ordered, these would be $30 shirts, and that ain’t gonna happen.
Thanks again and I’ll definitely plan on posting some photos of you awesome runners rocking the shirts. Thanks again.
