The last day Andrew will be taking requests for the shirt is February 2nd, which is this coming Wednesday, so if you’d like one, the information is in the update below.
Currently, there are enough requests for one run (as of yesterday, the total is 29), and he will be sending out a mass mailing to everyone who is interested after he is done recieving orders.
Andrew Paffendorf and a friend have re-created the Archies shirt design from the Amazing Disgrace tour, and are willing do another run of the design if there are enough requests for it. The shirt would be around $10, and for no profit. Jon Auer is fine with this; in fact is on the list to recieve one.
If you are interested, e-mail Andrew at apaffendorf[at]dmp[dot]com with the following information, and he will be keeping everyone informed –
First Name (at least):
A Vote For A Medium Type (Ringer, White T, Longsleeve):
They need an order of 24 to do it (currently at 9), and if 48 people are interested, they will be able to make the shirt in two mediums.
Info about the design – “It was redrawn off of a grainy picture of someone wearing it. So some intricate details of the original may be missing.
The original used 24 colors ($$$) we used 16. Basically a screen per color got expensive for us. We subbed in a few things and it came out great.”
One ground rule! This is for fans only, and cannot end up on Ebay. Buyers would be limited to a quantity of 4.
