Hello,
I sent off preliminary headcount numbers to Carl today and Chris updated his initial post re Friday night.

A quick check of weather.com shows you should pack your sunscreen.

It depends on several factors:
-Artwork: You have to a design to start with. This usually is needed to garner interest for the pre-orders to determine your demand (see below)
-Demand: How many shirts, what color, what sizes, Short and/or Long sleeve. All this needs to be determined before you get a price quote and order anything from the printer.
-Cost: Unit costs for sale are greatly determined by volume (unless you don't care about losing money). In the past for orders around 75-80, the cost outlay is usually near $1,000 out of pocket and that keeps going up every year.
-Timing: At this stage with just over 4 weeks until the event, printer schedules are the bigger issue than costs. Most of the shirt printers we worked with in the past (and trust), need anywhere from 4-6 weeks for orders like ours. Of course you can rush things, but that costs more money. In the past, the process for any shirt offerings for SPD begins at the beginning of January.

Speaking from experience from doing this, it takes an awful amount of time and energy to get them designed, printed, deal with the printer, get them and process them for sale (both at the event and shipping/mailing). It is a lot one person (usually it's just one) to at least break even let alone make any kind of profit.
If you want to step up for next year (pretty sure this thing will continue into the future), you're welcome to give it a go. I can pass along the printers that have done it in in the past as well as contacts of others we solicited.
Figured it wasn't going to happen this year, (no calendar? no shirts? bummer) I know it takes a lot of effort Vince. Thanks for the breakdown of everything. I'll see about next year.

I also miss the calendar so much, I'm looking at a friggin' cute, cuddly, red Panda Bear for the month of February (San Diego Zoo Calendar) and not someones nice E28. It's so sad...

Now, back to wrenching on this BMW Diesel after finding all the damn broken sensors I needed and getting this 524td polished up for next month.

Information has been added to the original post re:Friday. It’s not so much information as information that information exists. If you 1) will be in San Diego Friday evening and 2) would like the information and will RSVP, you can contact me (not necessarily recommended), photopark or MLastovo. It would help for tax purposes. Uhh, planning purposes.
