Officially Hoplorati

EDITED TO ADD: Buy your own here!

I know I am, because I have a hat that says so. I was not having the best day yesterday – at least not until I opened the mail and found a gift from Broken Andy. This is now my most favorite hat ever. It marks me as one of the Hoplorati without scaring the hoplophobes.  And I’m touched and honored that Andy thought enough of me to send me one.

 


There, MSgtB. Will this do?

  1. Yep, very cool hat.
    I recognize that was a gift, but is it available commercially somewhere?

  2. DT - you'd have to contact Broken Andy. From what I understand, he had this made up special.

  3. Nancy - Great picture!

    DT - I do believe there is a way for you to buy the hat directly from the manufacturer without paying the digitizing costs. I was very unsure of the quality and only ordered a limited run. I'll look into setting up a "store" at their site next week. I'll forward the info to Nancy once that is done.

    I'll be in my bunk.

  5. Andy - I'm impressed with the quality of the hat and the embroidery. If you set up a store, I'd love the option of a polo shirt.

  6. Nancy, I'm futzing with it right now. I agree, their finished product is nice. Their storefront software, not so much! But they do give me the option of passing the 15% commission on to customers, which is what I want.

    I'll look into a polo shirt. I don't know if that would be an additional digitizing fee though. Were you thinking a hoplite helmet on the front, or the helmet plus the word "Hoplorati" below it?

  7. Andy - that's exactly the design I was thinking of. There shouldn't be an extra digitizing fee. If there is, keep the 15% commission going to you until you recoup that cost.
