Thanks for your inquiry! I'm working toward having a minimun run of these shirts made. They are embroidered at the left chest area as you probably noticed.

Please let me know what size(s) and quantity you would like so I "have you covered". I expect it will take one to two weeks for the next "run".

Even just adding black shirts would be cool. I rarely wear white tshirts.

Please visit http://www.helifreakswag.com/. If I understand correctly, you are in Huntington Beach.

The store operates primarily as an e-commerce business, but has a physical presence in H.B., CA. So, sales shipped to a CA address have sales tax added.

Please send me an email via the web site's "Contact Us" found on the left side of the web site's main page, or send me a PM via HeliFreak. We'll work something out to fill your order :YeaBaby:

Hey now. I am about to order a neck strap, just need a little more info Finless man. Chill! heh. I already got the T-Shirt. However, I plan on getting a few more T's. My idea is how about having your "HELIFREAK.COM" name on the back of the shirt? I would even get one for my fiance that says "Squiggy's b*&%h" if that were the case. :rolling

Sorry not me. The Auatrailian "Emu" is flightless. Perhaps "Real Flight" used some digital magic? :roll:

Well "Squiggy", if you want a "FINLESS" autograph on your canopy, main blades, your shirt, or somewhere on your fiance's person, you'll have to ask the actual "FINLESS". I hear he is accomodating. :baconI'm just the vendor. :bawl

Sorry, meant having my name on back of shirt. Just that would be cool if you offered that so people would know who each of us are at funfly's, etc.

I have been bugging Dongle to offer customized shirts like the straps. Once I got the customization module installed to support the straps, he can apply that to any of the products.

Come on Dongle, time to enable customized embroidery on shirts! :tongue

I too would like to be able to identify people at the funflys I attend. As Finless points out, the module exists on the website to handle customizations. And, I have embroidery vendors who can do that type of work, but then there is the cost.

I don't think the HeliFreak customers would be willing to add approximately $12 to a Tee shirt that sells for $11 to $18. For a multi-day funfly, one would need at least two custom Tee shirts. Perhaps it would work for the knit (polo) shirts that sell for about $22.

The embroidery charge could go substantially higher for someone who wants their HeliFreak "handle" plus their full name. Embroidery cost are a function of the number of stiches which boils down to "machine" time.

A less expensive solution would be to use a pin-on "name tag" that could be moved from one shirt to another as need be. I could produce them on my lazerjet printer and offer them on the website. Anyone with a printer could do it themselves, although the "name tags" are typically offered in packs of multiple tags at the office supply stores. A person only needs one or two tags, not a dozen!

So, what do you think? Would you pay perhaps $4 for a "custom" name tag, or prefer custom embroidery for $12 and UP?

+1 AND to have a "Finless Autographed Cans of Bacon"...mmmm +2 for that! :bacon

Embroidery on Polo shirts, and Silkscreened names on T-Shirts would be much preferred. I don't think price usually matters much for us dumb dumbs pulling from our 401k's just to afford a hobby. Maybe I'm wrong about this, but $12 extra bucks is a small price to pay for the heliworld to know I'm that psycho Squiggy Wigginz on helifreak.com! :BlissI'm not so worried about my real name...it's my "Matrix name" anyway ya know (in my best Matrix voice, "Mr. Rengers you are NOT Squiggy Wigginz, you are just Mr. Rengers." LIES! This world is fake and you are not my father...) wait Star Wars crossover. :arggg:

Also Dongle..you don't know me very well to think I'd need more than 1 shirt with my name silkscreened on it for 5 days of IRCHA. I was on Grateful Dead tour. Showers and clean clothes are a luxury, not a necessity. :hug:

Like to toss in a suggestion for a "Helifreak" repair towel like the one Align makes with the Trex logo on it. I'd roll that bad boy out! Who knows, might even buy a set, make the wife use those!

"Embroidery on Polo shirts, and Silkscreened names on T-Shirts would be much preferred."
>Silk screen for "one-off" items doesn't lend itself to this process: artwork, film, screen preparation, printing, recover the screen.


" I don't think price usually matters much..."
>I disagree. One doesn't have to read many posts to see that people DO consider price for their purchases. Perhaps supporting HeliFreak moderates that inclination???


I've consulted with my embroidery supplier. I could offer custom embroidery on HeliFreak shirts, but it still comes back to approximately doubling the price of a Tee shirt!

Tomorrow, I'll introduce a "poll" to see what readers of this "Swag" forum think about this subject.

You can do a poll but based on the last one, not sure it will tell you much ;)

It costs nothing to add the option to allow people to add the embroidery to a shirt. If no one orders it, then no one orders it :) But I am sure some will want a custom shirt so at least it COULD be ordered where now it cant... Seems like a win win to me :)

Can I get Futaba FASST on the back of the strap or will that be some kind of copy right infringement?
