Ludophilia 6 is coming up fast -- 4 great days of boardgaming, socializing, and craft beer enjoyment.
Date: May 12-15.
Location: Country Inn and Suites, 2270 Point Blvd, Elgin, IL.
That means if we want to order t-shirts again, it's getting to be time! I had my resident artist do up some illustrations along the same lines as last year's shirt, with the logo on front, and a "humorous" take on the back, which seemed to be well-received. Take a look:
If you are interested in buying one or more shirts, please respond with your desired size(s) by April 2nd. I will want to get the order in by the next week to make certain we have them in time for the fest. No payment necessary at this time -- I'll collect when you get the shirt. (BTW, I also have a few leftovers from last year. I'll bring them if anyone wants an extra of those.)
This will be the same shirt from customink.com as last year, just a different color. They're quite nice and high quality material -- 100% preshrunk cotton, "generous fit" according to the website.
The cost of the shirt is dependent on the number we order, so I will have to give you the final price after I collect up the orders. But here are the estimated costs per shirt by total group order size:
10 shirts total - $21 each
15 shirts total - $17 each
20 shirts total - $15 each
25 shirts total - $14 each
30 shirts total - $13 each
35 shirts total - $12 each (this is where we landed last year - prices inch down from here)
