had an idea re t-shirts :D

i still reckon screenprinting would be the way to go (i can't afford to buy a t-shirt that *might* look crappy after only a couple of washes :( ), but how about we make the numbers up with kids t-shirts?!

just have the circle logo on the front 8-) cos then you could just get a bunch of 00, 0, 1 & 2 shirts, all white, all the same shape, print them, and i reckon heaps of people would be keen for those! :idea:

cos there's less sizes for little ones, a kid who is really a 000 can wear a 00 without thinking that its unflattering to their figure, they don't care if it is a round or v neck, or if it is fitting or baggy, or if it has cap/short/elbow/3/4/long sleeves... :lol:

so we could provide our own, then do a whole bunch of kids ones to make up the numbers, then sell them off! (maybe auction styles to raise funds?!) i'd like one or two for alexis 8-)

eta- volunteers at events could get a discount :evillaugh:

just a thought :D

Great idea Nova! I would so be signing up for a tee for Amelia and this new bubby.

You need to watch out - your head might explode with all these fancy ideas coming from it at the mo!

Um, yeah, hi - so it's the first time I have stuck my head in this section of the woods...I should have looked earlier! I can give you some contacts for tshirts (not online sorry 8-) ) but otherwise I saw the baby factory had some white tees and bodysuits yesterday for about $3-4. Do you need to know screenprinters too? I think I might have seen somewhere you had a contat for that? And are volunteers needed for the Auckland expo?

(sorry should have read all this sooner but been busy!) :laundry: :vac: :PC: :phone: :knit:

ok so i couldn't knit to save myself but just love that emoticon! :lol:

we will be needing volunteers for the expo day itself, so that at least lunch breaks for those of us there all day can be taken, thanks for offering, we'll be in touch.

My dad is a very slippery man, I just talked to him and he has said that he can't do 50 t-shirts in such a short time and it would be rather difficult to have 4 colours in the logo, we would need 4 screens and that's a lot of $$.
He can do 10 t shirts with only a symbol and not letters.
Sorry girls! I really tried to convinced him but he said he would need to miss work for a week to do such a big job in such short period of time. :cry:

I can recommend some screenprinters and can do a version of the logo for screenprinting - I wouldn't suggest a 4 colour version. I could probably get it down to 2.

[quote="nova"]

we're not having selling wahms- too hard basket

quote]

Are we able to have some flyers, and business cards instead to give out? I will be sending samples down to Chch + Wgtn for them to display and other guff - I agree selling nappies is a bit of a nightmare, but samples would be good? All samples sent have to include instructions for the volunteer workers if need be.

I'm happy to help out in any way.

I am doing some flyers for the Grey lynn expo (if that's what you are talking about) They are just an update of the old one in the new look) and have included some pics of different types.

Karyn, yes we will have available nappy business's brochures/business cards for people to take away if they want, Ali was collecting it all from the WAHMs for Auckland, so I imagine you'd have heard from her? And of course, you're welcomed to donate samples for the demo kits (we have 16 across the country now, two residing in Auckland). We don't have peapods and mummystouch in our demo kits. Email/PM me if you want to donate samples to demo kits.
