Autoshite Merchandise

Recommended Posts

What about Autoshite-themed items?

 

AS-branded hi-vis jackets, warning triangles, 'Police Aware' stickers, towing straps, AA card holders... :-D

 

bang on

 

AS branded tax disc holder - tax in post - yeah I know but my windscreen corner is lonely

 

I am up for hi Vis, Mug and Beenie

 

Can mugs be beige like the forum and oversized like those Sports Direct jobbies? 

 

what about the bottom of the mug, rather than royal doulton or wedgewood has "fancy a shag" instead

Thanks guys looks like its a plan then :)

 

We don't currently have an embroidery machine so unfortunately fleeces and beanies are out for the time being but T shirts and hoodies are planned.

 

I've had the printer seaching round and he's found a source of beige hoodies.  I've got one on order to test it out,  I'll try and convince him to find some better T shirts to print onto as I wasn't certain about the last one he did for me but that was sourced in a rush.

 

We usually use white mugs,  we can get other colours but they are a lot more expensive so it adds about £2 per mug.

 

We can do high-vis vests if you really want one.

 

I don't mind doing clothing in different sizes so long as folk turn up for it.  I think the easiest way would be to take orders for Shitefest 18 mugs and T-shirts and Autoshite mugs and hoodies but not just yet.

 

First of all I need to check the hoodie is good enough and work out what colour we want for the T-shirt,  that will depend on the design and that depends on you chaps.  I got an F in GCSE art and you have seen the rubbish I turn out on Paint.  Don't worry if you have no skill though,  Autoshite is full of clever people who will do stuff for each other so there is a fair chance that somebody with the right software will be able to tweak things up to a high enough dpi.

 

You must be able to improve on

How about something like this:  List the PNG files for the various artwork on Ebay for, say £2 each. Then we can order our own Mugs, Key Rings, Gym Bags, Polo Shirts, etc from Vistaprint or whoever.  And all the £2s go to site funds.  Then you don't have the hassle of ordering/keeping track of stock/chasing payment/packing & posting.  All you need to do is email out the files when a sale is made.

Perfectly happy to do that, especially for overseas members. I wouldn't use Ebay though but would just PM the PNG then hope people donate to the site.   The reason that I'm doing it is I can get things printed cheaply so we can get mugs for less than Vistaprint charge, my friend gets some work and the forum benefits.  I will look into posting stuff after SF as I will almost certainly have a couple of items left over.  Clothes post well but mugs would be pricy so might be better passed on at meets or as Alan suggests printed locally.

 

You should get a pint glass for your "works" nights out  :mrgreen:

 

 

The printer also runs a pub and has a shed full of branded pint glasses that could probably gain an Autoshite logo on the other side.  I will have a word if anyone wants.

 

Helpfully I'm going to be out of the country for the 2 weeks before SF but I'm looking on that as an advantage as I can get the orders together beforehand then leave him 2 weeks of peace to get it done before I fetch it and drag it up to Scotland.

      I've had various threads on the go for different collections this year, but thought I'd condense my threads into one manageable thread to document my ham-fisted tinkering.

      At the turn of the year I was driving a nice, dependable, modern 2011 Peugeot 407 and no other vehicle. It was nice enough, but boring as feck. I'd bought it after a series of disastrous heaps in the awkward age bracket of being new and valuable enough to worry about but old enough to be fucked. The 407 was just too new, too bloated and dull. I had a hankering for old metal, my Mineral Oil withdrawal pangs were strong.

      From January I started looking, there were eBay bids, missed reserves, wasted trips from Gumtree and other such nonsense. I happened on an automatic Rover 216 GSI with one giffer owner from a year old. The chap was giving up driving at 93 years old and his grandson was moving it on. I bid, and failed. It was in London though, about 420 miles away so I wasn't all that bothered. Of course when he offered it to me for my losing bid after the winning buyer was a no show I said yes. I was on the Megabus down to that London overnight for about £15. I hung about in Liverpool Street station like a mad shivering jakey until my train out to the suburb for my first sight of the new steed. It was battered outside but had been well looked after. A frankly insulting amount of cash changed hands and I was away up the road.

      We had many adventures together, it was dependable and it whet my appetite for interesting old motors again and proved that the very bottom end of the market was navigable if I had the patience to wade through the sea of shit to find the odd pearl.



      The 407 was still on the fleet at this point but I was covering a lot of miles in the Rover, with a long commute though the fuel economy wasn't ideal. When a friend's mother was looking for a new diesel saloon to replace the faithful old Xsara she had a scheme was concocted. I sold the 407 to her and was on the hunt for an interesting replacement.

      When I was growing up my dad had a succession of hopeless shitters, indeed I was brought home from the hospital as a newborn in a brush painted Skoda Super Estelle. The best car he had was a red XUD Peugeot 405 with air conditioning and electric windows. So when I found a 1994 GTXD advertised by someone who could actually compose a car advert in the fashion you would expect of a human being educated to a Primary School level, I pounced.

      Of course I couldn't buy a car just down the road so it was on the train to Birmingham. First class no less. I stayed in an absolute flea pit of a hotel and drove up the road the next day. This was a proper bit of nostalgia and a really practical borderline classic car. It had been fastidiously maintained by the previous owner. Apart from there being a hole where there was once a stereo and the lack of working air con it was a pleasant drive home.

      Given their relative scarcity and how dependable this one has proven so far, it's a keeper, I'd struggle to part with it.



      Two cars just wasn't enough to worry about, so this Citroen C1 was acquired. Pure Aleppo spec. A camel can go for weeks, or months without stopping at a watering hole, the C1 has a similar thirst for Motor Spirit. Man maths were employed and worked out that it would easily* pay for itself.




      There have been further movements, I'll recap them shortly. I should probably do some work.

      Lads, lads, lads. Its been ages since I bought a thing, and I LOVE BUYING THINGS. I couldn’t sleep last night, for instance. 
      I feel great because buying vehicles SOLVES ALL OF LIFE’S PROBLEMS (apart from parking permits). 
      Anyway, I just agreed to buy a thing, with collection commencing today or tomorrow. 
       
      In the meantime, let’s spy on the vendors house on street view shall we? My little bundle of joy is tucked in behind that rather tasty 164.

      1998 SUBARU IMPREZA NON-TURBO AWD MANUAL ESTATE WITH ROOF BARS AND MASSIVE FOGLIGHTS FOR DOOM SCENARIOS
      Bought this off Bramz last month, done a few hundred miles in it.  Perfectly reliable, school run kaos etc
      But had some sudden and big household bills loom, so having a big sell-off

      MOT is only to end of this month though. But everything works - all windows, no dash warnings; it's been a handy and hunky dory motor car.  Interior tidy.  Exterior pretty clean, bar the odd knock and scuff and arch bubble.  It's not a shed by any means.
      History file though up to a point, recent bills for service items, but cambelt roulette.  132k.  Tyres are about 18 months old, but they are budget ditchfinders.  I intended to keep it, wanted this exact spec for years, but will have to let it go after all.
      It will need that dicky front caliper replacing as the stickiness comes back after a few days after freeing it off.  Discs look to have little time left on them too.  Bonus is being the non-Turbo it has drums on the rear.  Synchromesh scratchy when cold, clutch feels a bit crunchy action but plenty of meat there
      Bonuses are: it's green, it's the estate, excellent heater, it's AWD for snowzombievirus kaos, got insurance cover it on classic multicar policy (Hagerty) as now it's old enough 1998
      I just need to get my money back.  It owes me 400 notes.  Can go today
      Yes, the number plate is now fixed properly

      Located M1 corridor Watford <> Luton
      £7 a ticket or 3 for £20
      Bargain.
      I'm keeping the Alfa 156 Wagon for now

      Well, OK, just a few brochures for sale, after having sorted through my pile over Christmas.
       
      The postage price will vary according to weight, so the prices below exclude postage - we'll sort this out in PMs. Obviously, if anyone wants more than one, I'll send them together. All are in excellent condition, with some very minor age related creases.
