Abarth Owners Club Mechandise!
« on: January 28, 2015, 05:28:10 PM »
I am thinking of starting a small store for AOC merchandise!

I wast thinking of things like;

T-Shirts
Mugs
Stickers
Hoodies
iPhone Cases

Would anyone be interested in anything like this?

If so, what would you like to see in the store? Do you have any ideas for any designs etc?

The proceeds will go towards running the website as forum, as well as getting us some public liability insurance for big events!

Let me know below :)

Sounds like a good idea, I like the idea of an iPhone case black leather feel with just the Abarth logo in the centre (cant find one anywhere) for iPhone 6. Thought the idea of liability insurance was being forgotten about after abarthisti issues.

Il see what I can do with the case - But most likely will run into copy right issues using the Abarth logo for commerical sales.

The PLI is still only an idea, being discussed by Colin and myself. Its only if we have a exceptionally large meet. Dont be put off by it - we by no means will start closing down events discussions due to it ;)

Hoodies, polo shirts , hats and the like would be a good idea, because once you've going the set up costs covered for the embroidery 20-30 ish, you should be able to order in small quantities without it costing a fortune. Problem with other items is you'll probably need a minimum order to make pricing competitive, and you'll be left holding stock. Good idea though  ;D

I really like this idea! Especially Tshirts, hoodies and mugs! Key rings would be pretty cool too :)

I'm happy to help you come up with some designs if you like Bertie!

Good idea there matey. Maby start off with smaller things to see how it goes and go from there?

Maby post pix of what they would look like and then see how many want them and order once you know?(That way you wont have piles of shirts stocked up in your house) lol

The stock wont be a problem. I will be going through an online shop who provide, create and distribute all our merchandise. That way I wont loose out on ordering loads and selling nothing!
