View Full Version : Sublimated Pit Shirts - Group Buy

We here at 212 Decals have been getting a lot of requests from other vendors and race teams for sublimated shirts.

If you don't know what a sublimated garment is,
Sublimation is a process for decorating polyester fabrics and materials. It is accomplished by printing a special ink onto transfer paper, applying that paper to a substrate and then applying heat and pressure to the material. The result is a soft-hand print and excellent color reproduction.

So that means you're creativity is the limit....with sublimation you can put anything you want into the fabric....it can cover the whole garment or just portions.

We are going to do a sublimated shirt group buy for folks to drive the cost extremely low. The shirts will be a polo style, collared, 1/4 zip front.
If you are interested there is a minimum of 6 shirts per party.

If you do not submit you're artwork in the correct vector art format ".eps" then a conversion and design fee will be added to you're order.
One good thing about 212 Decals conversion and design fees is that they are a flat rate for the job and we do not charge by the hour like all other graphic design firms.
In most instances it is approximately $35 for the conversion/design.

If you have seen a CMRA official walking around at the track then you have seen a sublimated pit style shirt.

With enough interest, these can be as low as $20-$35 per item, with a minimum of 6 required per party.
We do have a large library of race logos so getting you're sponsor's on there will be a snap.

Hopefully, we might have enough interest to have our club members looking really sharp for 2015.

Sublimation is on polyester shirts, which are not flame resistant like cotton et. all

You can pull a blank shirt template from the internet. Just do a Google search.
We would be more than happy to work with you on a design for sublimated pit shirts if you wanted.

We are going to close this off at 5:00PM CST today so we have enough time to get all the artwork done and get the shirts here by the first of the year.
For those of you who have your own logos and or designs please email them to us at info@212decals.com.
For those that need help with design we will need to schedule some time with each of you. It would be most helpful if each of you can tell us when you would have about an hour in front of your computer so we can do a remote meeting and get the initial design finished. If you don't have a computer we can still setup time for conversations around you're design/concept ideas.
Thanks all!

212 did all of our artwork prior to you taking over. Do you have that artwork, or will I need to provide new material? I'm free almost any evening with computer access. I will put together our design thoughts and e-mail them to you.

212 Decals would like to thank everyone that followed up with us on the sublimated pit shirts.
With the group buy aspect we were able to get these down to a very reasonable rate.
Every single design for each of the different teams is awesome. Some pretty cool stuff in there.
For the teams that used our design services thanks for letting us run with things and we truly hope you really enjoy the layouts.

We have received at least 50% down or more from folks and have started processing the order.
Look for your shirts to arrive in approximately 3 weeks time.

For what it's worth I'd like to shout out to Dirk and 212 for this shirt deal. Dirk was quick to respond to me, quick to get a shirt design out and has already provided me with estimated shipping dates. The price was fantastic and we look forward to sporting these shirts in 2015.
Thanks Dirk for taking care of the riders and teams!

kicking my self in the *** for not getting on this sooner.. i see a lot of others missed the band wagon as well.. I think a simple PM would have made them even cheaper with a better turn out but that's not your responsibility. ow well, maybe ill catch the next one for next year.

Matthew,

If there is enough interest, it is possible to do another group buy or the sublimated pit shirts can be purchased at normal pricing at any time.
