Burgee King

Yacht clubs have a pennant which identifies boats as belonging to members. I think it's called a Burgee. Should we get some Rib net Burgees made up so as newer members like me can identify other ribnet members.

Or I guess we could tie a yellow ribbon round the old A frame, That's it my thought for the week.

That sort of thing would lead to Commodors and Committees in no time, Stuart.

How about bumper stickers instead?

Ah! See the SoC sendoff thread re car window stickers. I could do some RIBNET ones, if anyone is interested.

I must agree with you - I think that having a Rib.net pennant of some sort would be a great idea.

BIBOA have one so that their members can recognise each other, so why shouldnt the Rib.net crowd?

Car Stickers are OK, but even if you see a car in the park near the slipway with a sticker, it doesnt mean you can find the RIB! No reason why we cant have both though!

There is no need to go as far as Commodores and Committees, but a nice pennant would be good.

Had exactly the same thoughts about burgees when I was out in Poole harbour yesterday. Sound like a good idea. Maybe sold for a small profit to help JK support this site??
Graeme: Was Jonno out with you yesterday?? Thought I heard his boat name asking for a radio check, but heard nothing further??
Cheers,
Andy.

Think it would be an excellent idea, I'd like one to go with my BIBOA one & the 'ol red duster. Mind you I think I'm running out of places to fly 'em!

But why stop there. What about rib.net the T shirt (or fleece or polo etc etc)? JK a money making opportunity? (Or you could franchise out to someone else!?)

What a great idea!

I like the idea of T-shirts/fleece too.

How about a defaced red ensign with a rib on it. Bound to upset a few of the sticks and rag brigade with that.

But yes put me down for one too.

Tshirts and stuff could be done from CafePress . Tshirts, fleeces, cups, mousemats, all that sort of stuff, and doesnt cost anything to make em.

I can put together some T shirt - Sweat shirts - Hooded tops - Caps etc with the Ribnet logo (if thats ok JK) or any other designs.

I don't see any reason why the cost couldn't include a contribution to Ribnet. JK if your ok with this let me know.

You can look at some examples at www.justski.org.uk

The only limitation is that the garment has to be a light colour or the design has to have a white background - you can also have your boat name or web site etc down the arm or accross the back or anywhere you want.

Here's an example of one I've been working on ready for when I buy Piranha. (I know its a bit sad naming and designing stuff for a boat you haven't bought yet but I don't care.)

Looks good to me, why dont we buy sweatshirts and fly them from the A frame. I am not in favour of commodores and comitees, it would just be good to recognise people when we are out. I went about 4 miles out of my way tesyerday 2 communicate with a couple of ribsters and as i got about 200 yards away they b******d off. I am sure they wouldn't have done this If I was flying my ribent sweatshirt from the A frame.

I certainly would be willing to pay a premium to supprt Ribnet

CafePress, although easy, is blighted by the shipping costs if you are outside the good ole US of A. However, if there's enough demand then I am happy to sort something out.

What would you want?

- tee shirts
- fleeces
- polo shirts
- burgees

Printed or embroidered? How much and how many?

And what do you want on them? Is now the time for a new logo and some sort of tag line or slogan?

Over to you . . .

John

I'd suggest that embroidered is better than printed every time. Although printed has the advantage of being cost-effective for small numbers, it doesn't last as well as embroidered garments, which would probably become better value for larger numbers. Unfortunately I don't know what the break-even point would be!

Surely Burgee

should be something along these lines...

as we all recognise it from website...

as well as being immediately recognisable it advertises the site as well ???

Yep thats the one

on a triangular burgee shape, flying off a pole/A frame would look good

I have often tried to read the names of boats when out and about in the solent to see if I recognise anyone, this would be a good solution

I agree with Pepper that embroidery wins everytime - especially as some transfer tend to run or fade quickly when they get and stay wet for any period of time. However you would be looking at substancially more money.

I would suggest going for transfers for any T / Sweat Shirts to keep the cost down and until you have an idea of how popular they will be and then looking at embriodary for fleeces and burgees.

I am happy to knock up a sample Tee shirt (using transfers) and if you Email (mike@justski.org.uk) your address I will send it upto you for your critical opinion.

I would anticipate T shirt costs to be in the region of 7.50 - Sweatshirts around 15.00 - hooded tops around 19.00 with 1 going to Ribnet for each.

If you are happy and anyone wants to (Wavehumper ?) I can produce custom designs for individuals including the Ribnet logo if people want to contact me direct.

Mike

I've dropped a message to a friend who does embroidered T-shirts and stuff

I've also e-mailed him this thread

www.expresslogos.net

I would have though he would be able to knock up a bungee - how big should they be? - and what material for the background?


Mike - I like your transfer t-shirt!
