I feel like screen printing could be ideal for these
we're going to need a professional screen printer for this.
no kidding :rolleyes:

For printing check Alibaba if you don't mind getting them done in China (and waiting a month for shipping). Looks like there's a lot of suppliers that can do what you're looking for. Min order looks like it's around 50. $2/piece don't know if that includes shipping but doubt it would add much.
i did come across that at one point, but i just don't think that would be ethical. the chances of those places not being a sweatshop are pretty low.

.she does embroidery and vinyl.
unfortunately embroidery and vinyl are not what we're looking for (we need a screen printer) thanks for the offer though.

Just for the record, though, Matt, isn't September better than nothing? Are you able to get yourself in line for September just in case we don't find another solution before then? Or do you have to front the money for an order to get in line?
maybe? i don't know. i'll be on a bike tour in september, so maybe i could get them sent to the library in the slabs ahead of me. there's a lot of logistics i haven't mentioned yet, but i'll think about it and see if there's some way to work it out. maybe i can get them in the slabs and mail them out to people from there after the jambo.

Matt!
One of my best friend's here in Oak works at a screen-printing shop.
He dislikes his job immensely, and is a huge supporter of these kind of projects, so I'm sure we could a decent discount. lol
If not, I do have a few other friends and acquaintances who work at other shops in the bay area.

I'll give him the following info, and I downloaded the .ai file.
  1. must be able to print to within 1 inch of the border of the bandana (90% of printers will only print up to 2.5 inches, which will not fit our design).
  2. must be able to print at a reasonable cost (i.e. $5 per bandana or less)
  3. minimum batch must be 50 bandanas.
22 in x 22
Just pm/text me any other details they would need, and I can forward it all for an estimate.

I absolutely will kill someone, if I have to, to help see this project through ;)

i think what might happen is that I'll shell out the cash to get them printed, but unless we find another printer (besides man vs ink, which is booked up till sept) i'll have to have them sent out to me in the slabs and i'll probably give them away to people that come to the jambo.

also, for the curious, here's the final draft of the design:

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
