I just thought of something Lame or Cool I cant decide...However what if the color of the shirt was limited to your ranking ... Ensign I mean Rookies get Redshirts..MVP's get Blue or Dark Grey..All Stars and above get Black....This way when you go up in rank you of course want to buy a new shirt to represent that ...ergo generating some website income. That or you get a black shirt with your Name and ranking.....nah I like the color shirt Idea more......

lol @ the color of shirts.
Do you know how funny it would look if you were wearing a black shirt that said "Hardware Canucks MVP" with your name on it too. They'd thing hardware canucks was some sports team.

OT: I dont think i would ever buy a shirt, but i would definitely buy a case badge.
Maybe other things you could sell would be:
-Good quality mouse pads(gaming pads or something that would actually be worth a bit of money, id rather pay $30 for an HWC gaming mouse pad than a steelseries)

@Arekieh, I never said anything about the "MVP" rating or anything like that. I was talking about our forum NAMES here....
such as mine "Robscix" it would not be large and wasn't a permanent idea. It was just a suggestion but probably more for the staff and reviewers then others. If you read back many are interested in shirts...

Oh sorry, i didnt mean what i said as an offence, im not saying that that is everyones opinion, I was just trying to make a funny comment, about the shirts, i was just stating that i personally wouldnt ever buy any shirts.

Sorry if you took any offence to my comments, and if you did, please know it was completely unintentional.
Now i feel bad, sorry

No,no, I took no offence, I just wanted to explain what I meant a bit better. There would be a very fine line as with many shirts between stylin' and tacky. These would turn out very nice if done properly.

just remember that the number of colors you incorporate in either silkscreen or embroidery affect the price and silkscreen eventually wears off but gives that faded I been wearin this shyt a long time look...whereas embroidery maintains its color forever but does create a "lump" for want of a better word in the fabric of whatever is being embroidered.
another thing to consider is quantity ordered, as buying bulk obviously reduces the price however you don't want to be stuck with inventory you can't move. I don't necessarily see that as an issue cuz if NVidea can sell fugly crap we can certainly sell some well manufactured Canadian gear
