    Michael, how nice that you took that over. I see lots of colors for the shirts and a wide range of sizes available. I wish there were extended sizes for women, however. I would love to buy a woman's shirt that is big enough to be loose on me. The men's shirts are always tight in those womanly places. An XL men's shirt fits everywhere but the top of me. Not sure what size I should buy for the unisex shirts. Wow, love the colors!

    I wish there were, too, but I'm stuck with what Amazon makes available in this service.

    I do offer larger women's sizes in the ones we print ourselves, but only in limited colors. We can't do these designs ourselves, though, because they have too many ink colors. Amazon uses a different technology, so it's no problem for them.

    Women's Cut tees are a love/hate thing for us. When we offer both, most women seem to prefer the Unisex (same as Men's) tees, and we get fewer returns and size complaints about them. And then you have the issue of having to go up a size or two with most Women's Cuts. Nobody wants to do that. We stopped bringing Women's Cut tees to shows. Only Unisex.

    Not that much to it. I wore the 'I paid more for this shirt than I did for my timeshare' to a Vidanta (Mexican) presentation in order to get the promised cash and discount from the entire bill we would charge to the room. I was told that it was 'offensive' and that I could either change the shirt or the presentation was off. Along with the goodies. By then, of course, they knew where I stood and the presentation didn't take long. We got the perks and the sales staff steered a fairly wide course around me when I was out on the grounds. I DID wear the shirt again during the stay, just not in an 'official' meeting. It made a fine 'pool cover-up'. :)

    I can't speak to how (or if) it will be dealt with at any of the places you say you'll be wearing it. Sounds like fun, though.

    Flag & Sedona will be easy. Very low pressure at the PP desks. One NO works. Both are run by same sales Management. No idea about the NM locations however.

    Thanks! I have 2 X 2 BR's and 2 X 1 BR's for a family getaway reserved (at least they still show up under My Vacations) for 3 nights the end of July at WRS on the San Antonio Riverwalk. I just ordered my third shirt, and will be wearing them. I will report back!

    T-shirts look great. Unfortunately they can't be shipped outside the USA, so not available to Canadian members. :(

    I, too, would be interested in a pocket-sized logo style of shirt as well as the regular style, but suspect the shipping issue is still going to be a problem.

    I went to purchase the "Keep Calm and Buy Resale" t-shirt from Hip Together and my Google Chrome browser sent me a security warning that the web site is hot sure (doesn't use HTTPS?).

    Anyone else have the same issue?

    Sorry, the SSL certificate expired a few days ago and I haven't updated it yet. It's safe to order.

    UPDATE: Renewed the SSL certificate but waiting for it to be reflected.

    Amazon says they plan on expanding the program outside of the US at some point in the future, but I don't have any details about a timeframe. If you do any travel in the US, you could have it sent to one of your destinations.

    The Keep Calm design sold on HipTogether.com can be shipped to Canada. The shopping cart should show the actual shipping costs.

    It's come to my attention that the shirt has been removed from Amazon. I've contacted Amazon to get more details. Hopefully, we'll have this cleared up shortly.

    I had also submitted four logo t-shirts to Amazon (both a pocket and chest print of both the island and oval TUG logos). Three are still under review and one is rejected, possibly for trademark issues. Amazon likes to know that copyrighted designs submitted to them are used with permission of the rights holders. I've sent them a link to this thread so that they can see that it is authorized.

    Working on getting it back up ASAP. It's possible that the links will change.

    Still working on getting the other design back up, but two of the logo shirts (with the oval logo) are now up.

    You can find them here:

    Three of the four logo shirts are now live, and it looks like the fourth one is approved and will be up shortly. You can find them all here:

    I'm still waiting to hear back from Amazon about the "I Paid More" shirt.

    Here's what I would love--a shirt with the "Keep Calm" on the *back* rather than emblazoned across the front. I have enough features on the front my own self. ;) Would that be possible? I love the message--and I also really like the pocket-logo shirts--and I keep thinking---put those two together!! :D

    We print the Keep Calm shirts ourselves, and can easily put the print on the back instead of the front. If you order from our web site, put a note during checkout that you would like the print on the back instead of the print.

    Amazon prints the logo shirts, so there's no real way for us to combine the two.
