Default Muscle and Brawn T-Shirts

Here's the official deal with the t-shirts:

I have a quote for $1110 for 100 shirts, which includes full color logo and the website address on the back. Some of this is setup costs, of course.

I DO NOT currently have that kind of money to spend. I wish I did. MAB makes a little over $200 a month in revenue. I spend a third of that on server costs, and most - if not all - of the other money goes back to you guys via logs, member of the month contests, and lifter sponsorships. To be honest, I give out of my own pocket more then I take in.

Obviously I could get a smaller order of shirts, but the cost goes up - and then you guys would have to pay more.

I'm sorry, but at this time I can't get the shirts printed. The community is growing rapidly, and maybe by 2011 will have a more solid financial base to draw from.

One of my goals with MAB has always been to put the focus on lifting first. I could stuff this site full of e-book crap to make money, and other bunk like that - but I don't and won't. Right now MAB's income comes from:

1) Google ads.
2) Our partnership with M&S.
3) Paid ads.

The best thing you can do to support MAB is to shop M&S. I'm not begging - but I am saying that this will help grow the site revenue and provide more cash for t-shirts, etc.
