My Mom's group signed up for the 2009 Alzheimer's Memory Walk yesterday. I have not yet set up my personal page, but that will be done in the next day or so and I will surely let you know.
Last year 9 of us walked and in order to look like a team, we tie-dyed shirts and had every intention of stenciling the groups name...but ran out of time. This year we are talking about having shirts printed or embroidered with the logo. I was researching options yesterday and came across Threadsmith.com, which offers brand name products, the ability to preview your order, and satisfaction guaranteed fast delivery.
We ran into a problem with a local t-shirt designer a couple years back when he attempted to keep our money even after trying to give us a sub par product. We were not thrilled. If we start planning our custom embroidered shirts now, we have plenty of time to get the groups input and order exactly what we want. Threadsmith.com also offers a volume discount. We would need at least 40 shirts (for the group as a whole, not just those participating in the Memory Walk) and they offer 25% savings at 40 or more.
This will definitely be one of our top choices when ordering. We have 3 new babies in the group and another on the way, since they also offer baby items like bibs and onsies, they are a good match for our ordering needs.
