    Hello yes I can give you some more information on this.Following a discussion with another member of our Party branch, as a trial I purchased a small quantity of transfer printed T-shirts carrying the Party logo and web address.  The idea was to produce a promotional item, which Party members could wear when campaigning, rather than as a fashion item.I offered the first batch for same at cost price at a Party delegate meeting, which generated interest on-line, so we thought it would be a good idea to suggest to the Party Executive Committee to make them available on a national basis, which they agreed.It had been suggested that screen printing shirts might be a better alternative to transfer printing, both to produce a better quality product and to reduce the cost of production and delivery. We started looking at potential suppliers, but were soon approached by a Party member with access to the necessary equipment who agreed to make a batch, and on behalf of the EC the Branch asked her to make up the order mentioned above, with the aim of making them available to order from Party Head Office, at a modest price.Unfortunately, there were unexpected technical difficulties with printing the logo on the T-shirts, and the member was unable to provide the range we requested, and some were of variable quality, so not suitable to sell by mail order. We sold some of this batch of shirts at a Party event in Birmingham two weeks ago.The member is planning to experiment with a different type of ink, and has also suggested adjusting the print size of the logo.The screen printing of the canvas bags was very successful, so hopefully they will be made available to purchase on-line shortly.The Branch has a meeting scheduled next Sunday, 13th August and will receive a progress report on the matter.  Members will need to decide the best way forward, which may be to delay any decisions until the member concerned has concluded her experiments with alternative ink, revising the range of designs to be made available, or to look at an alternative method of producing part of the range.I hope this helps, if you need more information you are welcome to message me.

    That's not Head Office's email address. It's @worldsocialism.org, isn't it?

    if the fashionistas of Seaham Harbour are wearing these this season, then they'll be the talk of the Paris catwalks, I'd better get one too, don't want it said that Newcastle lags behind Sunderland in the fashion stakes.I must not let Blackhall colliery down, do you have a spgb hard hat also.

    Hi TimI take it then you will be wanting the white on black shirt?  Did you find one the right size at Head Office?  If not I can order you one in.BTW Did I mention Wally Cox played for the Beddlington Terriers? Not had many orders in those colours yet – funny that! I remember my Bedlington terrier, a great little dog full of spirit and mischief.
