I've created an order form for the Steamaholics Shirts and uploaded it to my web space.  It's in PDF format so it should be easily usable by anyone.

To minimize any possibility of error, I'm asking that you print and fill out a separate form for each shirt desired, even if they are identical.  I will send a copy to the vendor with each order so they have something to work off of.  Please print clearly and legibly.

Shirts will ship to me, and I in turn will ship them to you via 1st Class or Flat Rate Priority - whichever is cheaper.  Until I actually have a shirt to weigh, I'm guessing.  I've added enough to cover my shipping cost of the shirt to you.  Any overpayment on shipping will be refunded to you.  Once I've mailed out some shirts and know what it actually costs, I'll adjust shipping costs on the Order Form accordingly.

I've ordered one shirt for myself so I can see what the final product will look like and make adjustments if required.  It will take a week or so for me to receive it.  If no adjustments are needed, I'll be ready to place orders.  Once I have the final product, I'll take some photos and post them so you can see what you'll be getting.

So... you can order now, or wait for the photos.  It's up to you.  Either way, I won't place any additional orders beyond the one shirt until things are finalized and the photos posted.

All payments will be via check or money order, and all ordering will be through snail mail.  I was going to try and do this electronically, but it's easier this way, and I'll have a hard copy to send the vendor for each shirt ordered.  I realize this introduces a little delay in processing, and I apologize for that, but it's also the easiest way to avoid errors.  If all goes well, you could have your shirt(s) in three or four weeks.  :)

Thanks for everyone's support on this endeavor!!  A big "Thanks" to Scot Lawrence for his efforts as well.  I'm excited about this!!  /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/w00t.gif

Dwight.

I think it would be best to sticky this for all the SA's to see.  I'm looking forward to having a nice shirt to wear to steamups.  Proper is the word here!

Dwight,
Sorry, the letter has already gone. I was too excited to wait antother day.

However, I ordered two shirts and included $10 for shipping. If both shirts are sent together, ten bucks ought to cover it.

So, where do we stand on the order form?  Have you updated the one in the 3/16 post or will there be a new post with a new form? Or--maybe I missed something about the new form.

Okay, the Order Form has been updated to more realistically reflect shipping charges. As I said before, anything overpaid will be refunded to you.

I want to reiterate that I won't be placing any orders until I have a "prototype" I'm happy with and that will take at least a week or more. :) I'll announce when that happens. If you wish to be on the short list, you can order now, or you can wait for the announcement. :)

I made a small addition to the Order Form tonight - I added a space for your MLS Username or email address. This is in case I need to contact you about your order (so I don't have to do it via snail mail). No need to download the new form if you already downloaded the old one - just please write your MLS Username or email address on it down by where your name and mailing address is.

The first two orders showed up today - Carl's and Walt's. :) I also heard from the vendor, and they have the shirt and embroidery programming in hand, so things are moving along. :D

I will send off another payment to cover shipping, order was already in the mail.  I was assuming that a "bulk" order of several shirts would be shipped in one package.

A quick update - I received an email that the prototype shirt was going out in today's mail. I also received a photo, and it looks GREAT!! /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/w00t.gif  I'd post it, but the color doesn't look right as it was taken indoors. I'd rather wait and take a couple shots in the sunlight so the color is correct and you can see exactly what you're buying. A couple more days ought to do it. From the look of it, I don't think there will be any issues needing correction, and I'll start sending in the orders I've already received and throw open he doors. :D

BTW, Yolanda emailed me about women's shirts, so I checked. They are available is anyone wants one. Sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL. No pockets I'm afraid. Write WOMEN'S in big letters on the order form. I have no firm quote, but I imagine they are the same price as the Men's no-pocket shirt.

A quick update - the first order of 12 shirts went to the vendor the end of last week week. The second order will go this week - so far I have 5 shirts on this order, but more may come in the next day or two. According to the vendor, I should have the first order in my hands by the 10th or 11th, and I will turn right around and mail them right back out again. If all goes well, the first dozen (and perhaps the next) should be in the hands of those who ordered them by the middle of the month.

If you want to get in on the second order, I'll have to have your order form in my hands by Thursday at the latest.

Dwight,
We are moving from New Hope to Las Vegas. Yes the New Hope and Ivyland is still running #40, Sunday will be my last day as an engineer there. We even used #40 for our wedding photos.
