The Order Has Been Placed!
Thanks to everyone that ordered the ACW t-shirts! I really appreciate all the support!
I had to quit taking orders so that I could get my order in to the printer and get things moving. It looks like I will be shipping the shirts out right after Christmas. Everything will be shipped flate-rate priority to get it out fast.
The funny thing about trying to save a little money on shipping is this; by the time I pay for a package and then deal with the various shipping charges, there is not much of a savings and it takes a week or little more to reach it's destination. So I find that the flate-rate ends up working out better.
If You Didn't Get An Order In...
At this point the order window for ACW shirts is closed. I think after this first order I will see how things go and take a look at the options. I can't really place a big order of shirts on spec hoping that they will sell, that would cost hundreds of dollars and I would be stuck with a lot of inventory.
I might open the doors to taking orders again for a limited time like I did for this order, or I may get things set up with a print-on-demand service. I have barely looked into that, so I need to do more research.
I knew that I wanted to get something going and out there, and I just had to move to make it happen. So I stopped into one of the local print/embroidery shops and had a small batch run to see how I liked them and decided to go for it.
It's Not Just About the ACW...
Not only am I excited to see that people will be wearing the ACW logo, I think I am more excited to see people wearing my favorite motto, "Let Your Work Be Your Signature."
This motto was shared with me by a master trim carpenter years before I ever heard of the craftsman motto, "To The Best of My Ability" and it has been the single most valuable and influential piece of advice ever shared with me.
That is all for now from the ACW. Stay safe in the shop!
