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.

      From a recent haul. This first lot 50p each + postage. More to come.

      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.

      EDIT:  4 SAIL see lower down
       
      No collection thread because Jersey and dark when I cycled up the road.

       
       

       


      I think this is the first K11 I’ve driven since I passed my test in an early Super S 24 years ago.
      Its great!!
      The gearbox isn’t shagged yet so hopefully I won’t be the last owner. 
      Needs a good clean up though. More photos to follow when I’ve done that.

      Being two of the resident American-auto lickers on here, danthecapriman and I have been having some PM chatter about possibly going abroad and bringing one back.  Here's one that we fancied quite strongly until Dan realised his passport had expired...

      So you see the sort of thing we like!
      Well... then this one appeared in the ebay thread...

      Dan and I discussed it at length (when was the last time you had a PM conversation run to 8 pages?) and decided I should bid on it.  We set a ceiling, because neither of us wanted to be involved in a bidding war even though we would be watching when it ended.
      And we were outbid.  Fair enough.
      Then I got a Second Chance Offer.  Winning bidder turned up, declared it wasn't for him, and scarpered.  The seller liked the car so much he almost didn't send me the Offer, and when it took me a while to reply (consulting with Dan) he almost wanted me to turn it down so he could keep it.  But I didn't.  Consultation showed that we both still thought it was a good buy, so I accepted.  Arrangements had to be made, money drawn, directions printed, etc etc.
      So yesterday my friend Roger arrived, a mere three hours later than we had arranged.  Immediately he declared his 2006 Fabia wasn't well and he didn't fancy it all the way to Derby and, crucially, back.  So ok, we went in my Saab.  He liked that, a lot.  Derby is almost 200 miles from Barrow, in case you wanted to know.  You know what my Saab looks like so you don't need pics of that stage of the trip.
      So, here we are at the seller's farm.

      Let's take a minute to explore some of his other toys...









      ...and believe me, these are only highlights!
      So, now let's look at the Cadillac in a bit more detail...












      Don't worry, I do have the bonnet mascot!  Seller removed it at my suggestion, because the car will live outside on the street.  I don't want to lose the ornament!
      So, we set off to drive home, after one of the compulsory-element pics...

      Seller directed us to a gas station and a chippy...


      (I might cross-post that one to Cars AndGirls...)  The girl in the white shirt is one of the chippy staff, she just couldn't get enough of the car!  I took a load of pics on her phone of her sitting in it, admiring it from outside... then finally we could have our tea and get back on the road.  We stopped at a couple of services, not least because driving at night with no instrument lighting is pretty stressful!  Especially when you have motorway roadworks for mile after mile, with a 50 limit and cameras.

      So we finally arrived in Barrow at 1.00am, having listened to Ken Bruce covering the Eurovision most of the way up.  Yes, the Cadillac has its original factory AM/FM radio, and it works!
      This morning I thought I'd better do something about the lack of door-locking, that the seller pointed out to me.  The car has 4 keys, all slightly different!  One for trunk, one for ignition... er...
      A little consultation with Dan brought forth the suggestion that the power-lock actuators might be at fault, and upon dismantling the driver's door, this was indeed the case.

      I disconnected the actuator from the lock and all was well.  One of the "other" keys was found to fit the doors, so now I can lock and unlock them manually.  Good enough.  When I took my dog out, I couldn't resist grabbing this shot...

      And then I decided it needed a clean, so I swept it out, found a carpet offcut for the trunk, and washed the thing.  It does look better.

      Several of my neighbours have come to have a look, and gone away impressed.
       
      What happens now?  Well the immediate plan is just that I should (and will!) drive it, as much as possible given that I don't have anywhere off-road to keep it.  This is at least partly why we went for a mechanically-sound car (which it certainly seems to be) with cosmetic issues.  One worries less about a fresh ding, you know.... To this end I'll be going to work in it tomorrow, and stopping at the Post Office on the way home to get the tax in my name.  This car is the right side of 40 years old, so I get free tax.  Lovely!
      What happens in the further-distance remains to be seen.
