We just realized that 2017 is the Galactic Senate's 10th anniversary! With 274 members currently, I am amazed at how much our detachment has grown over the past decade.

To celebrate, we would like to produce some merchandise, naturally. We are thinking of doing a patch and/or a shirt for RLGS members. Would there be any interest in either of those items? If we were to do a shirt, would folks prefer a traditional t-shirt or a bowling shirt?

(My personal preference is for a traditional t-shirt because they are cheaper and more flattering on curvy figures.)

Edit: I've added a poll, so please select all of the items you would be interested in. We will decide what to produce based on what people are most interested in buying.

In order to accomplish this, we will need a 10th anniversary patch logo, and that's where you all come in. Please submit your designs to me by PM by July 31. You are welcome to submit multiple designs.

I would personally love a patch! Not sure whether a t-shirt would have many takers in my base, since there are only a few of us in this detachment, so we couldn't really do a bulk order to keep costs down.

In case of T/Shirt I would prefer T-shirt too, most of the shirts I usually see are absolutely bad :s

What about a sweater/hoodie ? Something nice like they have in Chile or Italia !

Regarding the patch : do you aim to do 2 version like for 5th anniversary ? (I think it was 5th anniversary) with silver that was for everyone but gold patch only for RLGS members. Smile



I would not say no also to a pins/badge that can be stick to a t shirt Wink

The gold patch was nice, but already used. We could always go with copper instead... Laughing
Then we could use a new metallic color every five years. Wink

Alternatively, we could use metallic red thread in addition to the metallic silver.

I had an idea in my head of our basic patch with a sort of banner around the bottom saying "10 years." People can feel free to submit ideas with similar but new designs too.

I like the idea of a hoodie or a jacket, but if we are worried about cost and selling enough with a t-shirt, I suspect that more expensive outer-wear might be an even harder sell.

It sounds like a patch is attractive to people, though.

EHEH, I was not suggesting to reuse the gold one sorry. But my question was if there was plan for 2 versions of a 10 anniversary merchandising, like it had been case with the gold patch Wink

My problem with t shirt is that when it's cold we wear jackets anyway and can see the t shirt anymore :p But sure would be bit more expensive. At the same time, there are tons of RL t shirt, so maybe ppl would go for a bit more expense if they can finally get a jacket ? Maybe a poll would be necessary for that ? Smile
With following options maybe
- I would prefer t shirt
- I would prefer jacket
- i would like both (buy one of each)
- i would be ok for both but preferring t shirt
- i would be ok for both but preferring jacket
???

I must say for now I don't have specific ideas... or maybe a small one.
I guess we need for a logo, to stick to only ~6 colors right?
Would you have a nice resolution of the current logo we could use as base for ideas of a 10th anniversary logo ? Smile

Cheers

We are trying to get a hold of the vector version of this, but here is a high-quality jpg of our logo:



I have changed the first post to be a poll for what apparel people would be interested in buying. Unfortunately, it only wants to let us select up to three options, but if you are interested in everything, please say so in a post.

It looks like people are interested in a patch, and potential a members-only variant. I think whether we do the variant or not will depend on the designs that people submit.

I think I fixed the bug in the poll. Hopefully that works better now.

I like the bowling shirt idea.

I LOVE my bowling shirt from the RLSC. (Plus it fits business casual requirements!)
