Lone Star Glocker Shirts Ready To Go

Hi folks. Many of you might remember that last year I was ready to roll out a GT Lone Star Glocker's shirt. I developed the artwork and attempted to use an iron-on transfer system to produce the shirts. The shirts looked great too... Until you washed them. After the first washing, the iron-on backing would crack out. So, I shelved the project until I could come up with a better way to produce them.

Well, I've got a better way. I am using a print method known as ink sublimation printing to produce the shirts. This method produces very high quality prints that are as durable as silkscreened products, but the system is better suited for limited run products. The shirts use the same artwork as before. We are using Hanes Soft L'ink shirts. They are available in white, in sizes adult medium through 3X. I haven't found a provider yet with shirts in larger sizes that will work with this printing method, but I am looking.

Here's a pic:

Even with a magnifying glass, the G and S looks like the number 8. Maybe it is just the picture.

I was all excited until I saw the shirt.

Very disappointing. Has the potential to be so much better.

At least that's my opinion.

Eric,

Any chance of getting one in black? I prefer the darker ones since I carry. Less printing that way. Thanks!!!

That would be much better, and cooler to wear out to a LSG MEET *hint hint*

Eric,

Just an idea...but if you could find a way or a company to convert your design into a patch or embroidery, put it on the left chest of a polo type shirt I'm sure you could generate even more sales. I'd be up to paying 30-35 dollars per shirt and if you offered different colors I'd probably buy two or three. With the job and position I carry I really can't wear Tee shirts that often, but would really like a shirt with that logo on it.

personally I think the name "Lone Star Glockers" is a bit well....lame. Sorry folk's just my opinion.I'm sure there could have been a better moniker than the word "Glockers".....I'm sure I'll be ruffling some feathers...sorry

The link is off line when I clicked on it to see what it looked like and to order a shirt. Any suggestions?
