The long-awaited AF Gear Shop is now open! ---> http://www.cafeshops.com/afcom

The prices are indeed a bit high, but that is out of our control at this point - AF makes absolutely no money on this merchandise. However, the more products sold, the cheaper the prices will be.

A few pointers:
1. CafePress constantly offers various discounts. Be sure to check for CafePress Coupons on the web ( http://www.google.com/search?q=cafepress+coupon ) before making any purchases.
Current coupons:
$5 off $50 with code: SHOPNOV15 Exp 11/15
$5 off $30 with code: SPAYNEUTER Unknown Expiration

2. Surprisingly, the color does not appear to fade, as I personally have a hoodie, a golf shirt, and a t-shirt and they are all very nice.
3. Beware of the t-shirt sizes - their Large is very large. I would recommend Medium for most people.
4. The golf shirt is pretty good quality overall and has a very nice fit.
5. The hoodie is awesome and Medium size is perfect for me. (5'11, 155lb)

Nice, I think I'm going to pick up a T-shirt.

I was looking at the calender, are there any pictures in it? I think it would be neat to feature a car of the month here on the site, then at the end of the year put all the cars together into a calender featuring the selected rides.

That is exactly what I was thinking. The calendar you see there right now is just a one page deal with all the months piled in together. However, once we do get the car of the month thing rolling they will all be definately on the multi-page calendar.

I think that logo has to go.

Just my opinion

It sends the wrong communication.

I see that logo and it says: imports specifically Japanese and Skylines at that. Logos should have a more simple design and be a symbol for the entire organization.

I thought you Igor posted a request for a logo design in the graphic forum.

I guess you stopped monitoring it.

Anyway

Just my opinion

I think AF should pay for a professional to design a better logo but seeing now how AF spent tons of money to make all that gear I guess there is no point anymore.

I see that logo and it says: imports specifically Japanese and Skylines at that, it also says cartoons and looks like it was designed by a middle schooler (no offense to middle schoolers). I think something better can be designed.

If you feel this way then why join the forums? It's the same damn logo... get over yourself.

First off, I have never posted a logo design request - that was decal design request.
Second, the AF logo is enjoyed by most everyone that I have talked to.
Third, no money was spent on creating the merchandise as it is outsourced to cafepress.

..and no, the logo will not be changed.

I must have missread the post. But why have a decal request when all you have to do is use the same logo. And also did you notice everyones take on the logo in there decals, most were different from the AF logo perhaps you needed to be more clear.

Igor, the idea of being able to put your user name on the back to a shirt/hoody is interging. Whoever posted it had a interseting idea.

Does that mean that they are made to order? Would it be possible to get items in a different color, other then white? I would surely pick up a hoodie if they were black or navy, with a white logo.

Your Welcome :bigthumb:. Also, I also like HiFlow5 0's idea too. That would be cool if they offered hoodies and shirts in Black and/or Navy besides just white. I also think if they offered them in grey, that would be a nice option to have as well. I think grey is a great color for shirts and hoodies.

the hoodie is grey and there is a grey shirt.

igor i disagree with the custom username thing. It's going to be really hard to remember who's goes with what, and if you mail someone the wrong one by mistake it'll screw up two orders. In the end it all comes down to you. If you can handle all that added stress then its up to you, but me persoanlly, i couldnt.

eckoman_pdx
11-13-2003, 10:43 PM
I will restate I like the option for a user name on the back idea. It would be an option, one which you wouldn't have to choose I would think. I would think a good way to do it would be like it's done when ordering a sports jersey with a custom name on the back from the sports illustrated store. It will cost a bit more for that option, and will take longer for you to receive it, because it's being custom done for the order.

KoRnboy
11-13-2003, 11:50 PM
Well if you order a custom one you could E-mail Igor with your name and username so he can check and make sure he doesn't get them mixed up. I'd just like to have my username so I could goto a meet and people would know who I am... if they're from the Forums that is, just a neat idea.

Im a graphic designer... and to be honest, I think the logo design is excellent. Its clean, simple, eye catching, and does all the good things logos are intended for.

Bad news :(

I talked to CafePress and unfortunately they do not have the capability of getting the customized text put on the back per customer.
However, I am sure someone here knows how to get the iron-on text and that part can be added on to the AF products by the members themselves. Anyone?

Well, that seriously blows. :banghead: :disappoin :mad: :banghead: Oh well, the idea will live on in memory, and hopefully one day........what if they charged more $$ for username hoodies, since they would be printing a 1-off of that user name. They could decide how much more $$ they feel is worth it, and us users can then decided before they commit offering it, wherther we still feel it is worth it.

Well Stated!!! LOL!!! Yes, We still dream of user name Hoodies. Igor, just think of the free advertising it would give AF to have a bunch of us running around the tracks and shows wearing AF hoodies with usernames...it would make it more noticable, giving AF more exposer, and possibly bring in new members as a result. See, what a good idea this is! :bigthumb: :biggrin:

Not only that but it would give those who buy one references to the Forums ;)

the iron-on stuff, you can buy at office max (or a store to the likeness of the forementioned) it's just paper... however, after all is said and done, you're still ironing computer printer ink on the fabric... and that does eventually fade a bit.

but it's a lot of fun!!! especially if you don't burn yourself while you play with the iron!



but yes... i just thought of this...
why not just have your username embroidered on the back?

Hmm, yes...references, I never thought about that one. It would give the people who bought it more references. Another added benifit of your username hoody idea.

i'll probably get yelled at for this but i'm willing to try it. i actually agree with "asaenz" about the logo. it's a nice skyline and all but this site is about cars in general right, not just skylines?? i think you could use maybe a logo of some different cars all lined up, like say maybe, hi flow5 0's mustang, then a camaro/firebird, skyline, supra, sylvia whatever and then maybe even a grand national (i just had to get that one in there :p ) and then use it as the logo so that way it shows the diversification of the forums. it's a forum for all kinds of car enthusiasts. just my opinion and i'm sorry if anyone's offended. now back to the topic of embroidered hoodys.
