ACT (a community theatre) often has T-shirts printed of its shows. Why? First, they’re great souvenirs for cast and crew. Second, if the producer does it early enough, they are effective mobile advertising posters. The director and producer encourage those who have them to wear them as often as they can, and show them off to friends and the curious. Third, a producer can make a tiny bit of extra money for the show.
If you look at an earlier posting on this blog, you will find the poster we will be using for advertising Macbeth. Our talented graphic designer, Christina, took the poster and adapted it for three colour printing on black apparel. The result is what you see here, though the green type in the lower right will be a brighter green. We will be ordering short sleeved T-shirts, long-sleeved T-shirts and sweatshirts.
To ensure a commitment to paying for the shirt when it comes in, we ask for a $10 deposit. The final cost of the shirts will be, respectively, in the range of $12, $15 and $20. We round the price up to the nearest dollar and the spare change goes into the production’s revenue.
This time we will be ordering a few extra T-shirts in a range of sizes for sale to the general public. Are you interested? If so, but want to guarantee a shirt of the type and in the size you want, you have to act fast. The size charts are below. Women’s T shirts have a narrower sleeve and a shorter length but are the same width under the arms.
To pre-order a shirt, just post a comment on the blog by midnight Sunday, July 22, and I’ll get back in touch with you on Monday morning.
