You can now pre-order the awesome new Amphour T-Shirt!
http://teespring.com/tah-black
Super cheap.
Even shipping to oz is $10.50 via DHL.
You can only get this low price through the campaign. After it's done, the shirt will be $25 instead of $15.
And unlike places like Zazzle, we actually make a good profit on this, helping support the show.

Well that's strange.  I just ordered one, click on paypal and at some point in the process it updates with shipping cost for your paypal address.  It was only $3.85 for shipping to WA...

Hmm, very strange. That's too cheap, I don't think even USPS could do that price. Something went wrong?  :-//

Awesome, we hit our target of 100 shirts in a day! and the episode hasn't even been released yet.
I wanna do some new EEVblog shirts (designed by someone with talent, a.k.a not me), this is fun.

When I put in my order it was 54 IIRC, so it went out pretty fast. Don't think I will get it before end of next month though, PO is still on strike ( not that you can tell the difference) and is slower than usual. Still have 2 in the pipeline from Frankie, should be here before month end if I am lucky.

WA = Washington? It's only $3.85 to the states, as you showed there. The 10.95 Dave referred to was for int'l shipping.

Used my UK address via Paypal and got conformation email, but system also charged me $3.85. Be interesting to see if they ask for more money on dispatch.

I was charged $3.85 for shipping too. Paypal was quick to charge the $18.85 ($15+3.85) but I was then taken to a page to confirm my shipping address. As we don't use postal codes in Hong Kong I left that field blank and was then given an error message asking me to fill that in. However, at this point the system automatically changed my country to "United States" and it's not an editable field :( When I clicked "back" I was redirected back to the teespring homepage and lost the address confirmation step altogether!

I now have $18.85 taken away from my Paypal account but no order confirmation or order number from teespring  :palm: I just sent their support an email.

Nope, that's Western Australia.  Looks like they should ship in a few weeks, so we'll see.

The Amp Hour t-shirt has just arrived!! Looks and feels great! And believe it or not, postage is really only $3.85. They didn't (or hasn't) charge any extra since I placed my order. I have never paid so little to have anything sent from the US to Hong Kong. Why can't all US online retailers do the same :)

Awesome! By DHL?
I wonder if it's really that cheap, or their system has goofed but they honored it anyway?

No, not DHL, just through the regular postal services. Well if they goofed, they must have been goofing more as I also ordered the negative feedback t-shirt and they also only charged me $3.85 for postage!

got mine shirt today, email entry: Black "Keep Current" T-shirt has ended successfully. The t-shirts are now being printed!''  datet at 1.5.
and estimated delivery was on/before 21.5, so got it well on time, first package from USA!. so far fastest package was from china in 2 days...but that was some luck :D. anyway, i'm very pleased of the quality, both material and printing, looks MUCH better than in picture: font is bit nostalgic, and reminds even more band-shirt. 100% cotton means durability to me, which is good, no need for excessive worries.
I ordered two: m for me, and L for father, both came, and suits perfectly. even package was nice, and customs declaration right next to billing/delivery address!. AWESOME!. i find NO NEGATIVE FEEDBACK here  ;)

Not that I am implying board members are dirty, but has anybody washed their shirt yet?
If so has it shrunk at all?
I ordered an XL and this size with American shirts is normally slightly loose on me, however this shirt is a bit tight.
If they shrink, I will use the two eevblog ones on order as presents I think and order XXL next time.

haha, or if someone washes it for other reason before wearing one? but, i dont think they'll shrink much, and after all, when you wear any piece of clothes, i'll shape towards body shapes....but i would think that maybe you should use that bigger one, and give smaller as gifts, tight t-shirt is one of nastiest things....but this is all my opinion :D

Tight T shirt is alright with certain people.......... just saying.

I generally always wash new clothes before using them, you then can see if the dyes will run, if the cloth will shrink and if it will dry misshaped.

Printfection shirt (left) vs the TeeSpring shirt (right)




The Printfection one is essentially 2 colour, but the Teespring one is much better and coler to the original hand drawn style. In fact it has a very funky texture.
I'm not sure why the Printfection one is so 2 colour drab? Is it the printing process or pre-processing of the uploaded image?

Different screen manufacturing techniques, the one is using 3 ink colours and 3 different screens, while the other is just using 2 screens and halftones to get the image density changes. The 3 screen method uses extra time and needs 3 ink cycles and drying between passes to dry the ink, though you can get a high rate with care and a 6 screen carousel with alternate screens used to dry ink, but this takes care and practice. 2 colours has a higher rate on the same carousel, you skip 2 stages each time.

It's now tested, washing has no negative effect on shirt, no shrinking/mis-shaping, bleaching of text/ink or whatsoever :).

Lord knows the government would go bankrupt if they didn't make 67% off every imported T-shirt!  ::)

Have to say, I'm grateful the worst hardship I have to get the vast majority of packages is the 250 foot (that's 76m for you normal folk...) walk to my mailbox.

Was going to hoof it to the PO today, but when I looked next it was home time............ Tomorrow got to go get some clutch plates made very quickly, as the old ones I looked at in the industrial gearbox are looking very sick currently, they are busy falling apart, but as they are in a cage they still work, but still need new ones before the remains fall out. Clutch and Brake place will make as per sample....... Still got one left as sample. Then need to get out the 65AF socket and breaker bar to undo the nut.

Practised my Recoiling skills again, go to undo one bolt and it just came out complete with corroded thread. went and got the kit and the hand tap, and then recut the whole hole through the alloy base and installed the extra length M6 insert and put the bolt in again.  Need to order a few more inserts now, M6, M5, M4, M3 are all low, but on the plus side still have plenty of M16 and M12 inserts around.

Well, I suppose it's finally time to roll this out. They're not cheap, which I apologize for, but we're not getting any profit either right now (the dark shirts cost more to print for some reason). These are the same shirts we send out to people for contests and such.

Well, we had them all at 25 before to get a couple bucks per shirt. But once you factor in shipping, that would have been well over 30 for most people, significantly more for people outside the US.
