They go for $20ea, come in four color schemes, one size fits all. They are nicely made with brass vents and strap buckles, held up nicely for those who bought them last year. of course all proceeds go toward site costs for the year.

I'll send you my contact w/ the company, Chillybearcustom.com. The biggest cost and burden is the artwork and conversion of layout into an embroidery tape (digital). I am not sure what the minimum run is but I believe you can go as small as you want but the price is higher that way and goes down as you get more. Our last run of hats cost several hundred dollars.

Here's what I would suggest instead - there are small batch focused kiosks at the mall that specialize in this kind of stuff for consumers. I don't think working with a big shop like Chillybear is the right approach for this. BTW - save me one!

Une pour Moi

Off white with the brown bill. Paypal again?

Joan wants to know if the hats are made with a heavy material(would be too hot for warm summer day?) before she jumps on the bandwagon.

Re: Une pour Moi

Fred -

They are 100% cotton, lightweight as far as hats go. Those from the last batch were worn in summer last year and they are pretty cool as hats go. You can hold them to the light and see the light like a fabric lightshade. I looked high and low for the right all-around hat, but I'll let others comment on their likes and dislikes about them. I think they are pretty damn nice.

Orders made through Paypal will be processed first because (a) they arrive first (b) you can put your mailing address into the spreadsheet (c) exact time and date of the order is recorded and (d) it makes my job very easy. Checks require going to the bank, depositing, saving envelopes, all that "fun" stuff.

If anyone wants to volunteer to be the "check guy" we can work out some free hats or flyline or something.

For extra $$ per month we can hook up a secure credit card link but we'd lose money for sure in that deal. Paypal takes a small cut for providing a secure exchange method but the real payback for us is the automatic record keeping and addresses.

Talking Handsome Devil

Juro,

I'm in for one of every flavor. My youngest decided that my current hat looked better on her than it does on me. BTW. Who is that handsome devil in those Foster Grants?:hehe:

John,

One of the guys I work with does that kind of thing with the hats. Let me know what you want. Maybe he can do what you need for a good price. After all, I am his boss.

Jimmy -

I've already been putting the order together with Chillybear but I'll talk to your man about any additional stuff down the road.

Handsome devil alright - that fish sure had the hots for him! :hehe:

Juro, Joan's in for an all khaki coloured one.

If you need a 'check guy' let me know. Work for a bank and all that. Only 'fumble part' would be you're on one side of the States and I'm on the other. But easy to set up an account (checking) that you can draw on with the book in hand.

Let me know off line.
Fred
