    You might have seen the link at the top of the forum, but basically I have set up a shop with some Marathon Stadium themed merchandise in it. There is a comission in it, but I'm not making a profit, all money will go into paying for hosting the site, paying for the domain name, paying for the forum software, paying for forum add-ons (like our "like" and "thank you" features, and the mobile version of the site, both of which cost) and if there's any left over (which I doubt) it will go towards competition prizes.

    But anyway, have a look around and if there's anything you like then go ahead and buy it. I haven't bought anything from them yet (I will be, though), but from the research I've done, this is the best quality custom t-shirt site on the internet.

    One last thing - prices are in $US, so at the moment, the price in $Australian will be a little bit cheaper.

    Oh, and - when I have time I will work on some different designs. I'll post in here when they go up.

    Aaand ... thanks of course to Nuke for the forum logo, and his kind permission to use it on this merchandise, and around the site, for that matter.

    Hows the site go in regards to varying designs? If I get a bit creative, I have a few things popping around in my head that I wouldnt mind creating/wearing.

    Also, do they offer collared shirts?

    Well you are limited to printing on the front and back on the shirt, no arms etc, but apart from that it's up to you. No collars ... here's the link to their product range:

    http://www.printfection.com/merchandise/product-list

    I'm happy to put anything that anybody on here designs up for sale, just remember it can't have photos of players because of copyright, and the image has to be really high resolution for it to look good once it's printed (the site has details, but I can help you if you like).

    It would appear not, but if anybody has any requests from what is listed in the link above, let me know and I'll add it to the shop.

    You are mad for not trying to make some money off it, you are ripping yourself off.

    There's not really much money to be made! But nah, this site is for the love of it, anyway. The other alternative is ads, but I prefer not to have any on here, they're annoying.

    Nice!!!

    I have just put an order through, for two t-shirts, a stubbie holder and a mug ... once they arrive I'll take some pics and post them, so you can see what they look like in the flesh, and get an idea for the quality. :)

    Yeah, I agree that is a downside, and also that the cap isn't embroidered, it is just printed on.

    The first batch has arrived!

    First of all, the Marathon Stadium packing slip:

    Here's the cup - I must say, it is really well printed, feels like the glossy coating has gone on after the printing ... very good quality.

    Next is the can holder - now it does come flat, unlike the majority I see in Aus (don't see them much in NZ!) but that may be a good thing for portability. Here it goes in it's natural state, and with a bottle inside (couldn't find any cans around). Again, very well printed logo.

    And lastly (I do have another "burnout" t-shirt on order, but they shipped them seperately) here's the t-shirt. Now this is a small size ... the printing is again bright and looks great ... I chose the t-shirt colour and it's just as they had on the site ... overall it's pretty cool and really good quality and I couldn't be happier with how it's turned out.

    Modelled by a scruffy unshaven yours truly.

    So hurry up and order something, because I'm the only one who has so far! :lol:
