I meant to have this posted last night, but I've had kind of a rough weekend. :sigh: At any rate, nothing really has changed since the last go-round, except this time I'm not trying to make anything off of these. The Bazaar here is a great spot for commercial interests, but I just didn't make enough last time for it to be worth the hassle of upgrading my account, keeping it going, and whatnot. For those of you on the fence, this is the third time we've done a group order - and I've shipped these hats worldwide. I have a pretty good handle on this, and I'll guarantee you'll get what you order, or I'll bust my butt to fix it free of charge. And if you're wondering what I "made" off the last run or two, it wasn't much - look at the "Round 1" link in my sig - I think I took in close to $1K and ended up pocketing ~$50 plus a hat or two, which was considered fair compensation for the legwork involved. First, pics of the actual product: For the size-conscious buyer, here's a pic of the back velcro closure. This hat has been adjusted to fit my own rather large dome - 7-3/4 - and you can see there's still PLENTY of velcro to go. I think you 8-1/2 guys will be fine. Now, the info/ordering instructions: Hats (Army-style or ball cap) are $20US each, if they're being shipped anywhere in the US, Canada, or Mexico. Beanies are $15US each. :EDIT: Just for clarification - prices are with shipping costs included. If they're being shipped internationally, hats are $30US each for the first hat, and $15US each for up to two additional hats, unless and until some generous person steps up and makes a donation to defray that added shipping cost. (Hey, it happened once!) Beanies/toques are $25 for the first, and $15 for each additional (whether hat OR beanie). Shipping across the pond (Atlantic OR Pacific), in my experience, more or less doubles the cost of shipping. It cost me more to ship a hat or two to Japan and Australia than the cost of the hat itself, in the first round of these. I averaged out the cost to ship 10 hats overseas, and came up with that figure as a median, regardless of whether I was shipping to the UK, South Africa, or Japan. This way the cost of shipping is evened out a bit. Determine how many hats you want, and what colors you want, following the instructions in the thread. You have 6 different hat colors available to you. You can get any combination of 1 hat and 1 color thread available on site - so there are five colors to choose from including Black, Chocolate Brown, Khaki, Olive, and Camouflage. For the ball cap and/or toque/beanie crowd, here are your color choices: :EDIT: Pics of ball caps / beanies are in post #5 Thick Stitch Cap (cap color/stitching color) Black Burnt Orange/Stone Chocolate Brown/Stone Light Olive Light Olive/Stone Maritime Blue Nickel/Black Stone And for the toques/beanies: Athletic Oxford (gray) Black Brown Columbia Blue (light blue) Light Pink Navy Stone As far as thread goes, Sports Connection has dozens of colors, so feel free to be somewhat picky - but let's try to keep it to the basics. Any of the primary or secondary colors (i.e. blue, red, yellow, green, orange, purple) with the descriptors "light" or "dark" is about as complicated as I want to get. If you say "light red" I'm going to assume you mean pink, by the way. Black, white, brown, and khaki (tan) are also acceptable. If you have a specific color you just DESPERATELY have to have, PM me and I'll work with you. The thread choices are really up to you - they have LOTS of different colors to choose from, so if you pick something not too out of the ordinary, they probably have it. This means blue, or red, pink, yellow, etc. But only one color thread per hat - they upcharge for more than one color per hat. And I'm sorry to say that we could not find a good match for the "Markbass yellow" thread. :hrm: Important note: Only one color thread per hat. Multi-color embroidery drives prices up, so I decided that one color would be enough. Now, you've decided: 1) How many hats you want. 2) What style(s) you want. 3) Color schemes for each item. 4) The total for your order (using the prices above) Log into PayPal and send that amount (i.e. $20, $40, $60US) to [email protected]. This payment is for GOODS, not gift or service. In the "Email to recipient" SUBJECT line, please put your TB username. In the MESSAGE block, please use this format to specify your hat preferences: #1 Hat color/thread color - #2 Hat color/thread color - #3 etc. For example - my order will look like this: Black/white - Camo/black Repeat this as many times as is necessary, and use a new line for each hat. Please do NOT: Black/khaki/blue/pink = because I won't understand what you want. If you DO NOT SPECIFY what color scheme you want, I will assume you want a black hat with white embroidery. Please ensure that your PayPal address is the address where you want the hat(s) to be shipped. If it is not, please send me a PM via TB with the correct address and your real name - sometimes Paypal doesn't tell me that "bassguy26" is Bob Jackem. I will stop taking payments at 2pm EST on [DEL]Monday the 30th of April[/DEL] :EDIT: Wednesday the 2nd of May. The order will be placed shortly after that time, and I expect delivery within a couple of weeks. The hats SHOULD be mailed out the week of May 14th, and you should all have them within 6-10 business days at the latest, so you'll be able to sport them for all the Memorial Day gigs (here in the States, anyway - for the rest of you, you'll be able to sport them on... umm... Sunday?) lol. Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee the dates - found this out the second go-round. There are only so many machines at this embroidery shop, and they may be backlogged. I will guarantee to keep you posted with updates, as I get them. I think I've covered everything, if I've missed anything feel free to PM me. Also, before I forget - if you're paying via money order, please PM me for an address. I don't want to just put it out here. Thanks!
