Return of the OG FLiPS Shirt. 10yr anniversary
« on: September 06, 2020, 03:37:19 PM »
SURPRISE!

It's been a long time since there has been any activity in FLiPS, and this pandemic is really screwing us up, but I know many of you still support Florida pinball and our club. THANK YOU!

In celebration of our upcoming 10th Anniversary, (Anyone remember the Superhero Tourney in November 2010 that kicked off the new era?) I have redesigned the original FLiPS shirt to include front and back designs and the 10 year designation. 

Those of you have the OG shirt, rest assured you own a limited edition classic. There are no more!

BUT, here is your chance to own a new version. 

The process is easy:

1.Click the link below (Order form ends November 30)

2.Pick your size. There are no color choices. CENTAUR is black background with white and red.  End of discussion.

3.Provide your contact info.

4.No personal info needed except email. I will be notified.

5.No upfront or online payment required.

6.Shirts will be shipped to me once the threshold is met.

7.I will give your shirt to you when we meet up. Maybe I'll arrange curbside pickup at Casa De La Corpse and you can say hello from at least 6 feet away :)

8.Cost is $20 flat fee.  All proceeds will be donated to Alzheimer's research.  All of it. 

9.As always, no obligation. 

10.Most importantly, thank you for your support!

To answer some questions:

1. Can I buy a shirt if I am not in FLiPS? Of course! You don’t need to be in FLiPS to buy a shirt. (You don’t need to even live in Florida, or play pinball)

2. Are there any other colors than black? I’m tired of black shirts. Sorry, just because they are making colorized Centaur playfields, doesn’t mean the shirts will be colorized :)

3. How will I get the shirt from you? We will figure out something. As I said, maybe I can offer curbside pickups, or I can drop it off. I travel in Florida a lot for work. Pay me when we make the exchange.  That’s another reason I never collect money upfront :)

4. Couldn’t you have them ship it? There was an option for that, but it adds on $5 for one shirt, $6 for two.  Seemed unnecessary.

5. Is that the actual shirt? No, it is a prototype design.  The shirts will be made and proofs sent for my review.  It will be pretty close. The other FLiPS and FTP shirts you’ve seen went through similar processes.

6.  Why donate the money to Alzheimer’s? It’s a worthwhile cause.  Dementia and disorders of the brain are serious conditions that affect not only the person, but their loved ones. 

Any other questions, feel free to reach out via pm on this site or pinballcorpse@yahoo.com

Hanes Beefy T added as an option. Some of the sizes evidently are sold out of the Gildan brand. Sorry.

Getting close to the first threshold target order. If we reach the number, I could in theory order the shirts earlier than November 30.

Thanks to everyone for the support !

Happy November!

Ordering for the legendary CENTAUR FLiPS design celebrating our 10th year ends this month. Operators are standing by.

Here is your chance to own an iconic design, show everyone you are part of the Florida Pinball Society and support a worthy cause.

Bump.  About 2 weeks left to order.

Time is running out. Act now. This is a great way to show you are part of the Florida Pinball scene.

Again, no money due now and all proceeds will be donated.

Thanks to everyone around the state (and out of state) for the continued support.

Jeff

Bump.

One week left to order.

Fully anticipating after the order is placed and people are wearing their shirts there will be people saying “Oh man that is a cool shirt where can I get one?” And they will be out of luck.

If you think you know someone who might want one, please point them in this direction or even better surprise them with a gift.

Again, all money will donated. No money due now, pay when you get the shirt.

Thanks for the continued support !!

Jeff

2 more days left to order. 

Nothing says “Black Friday” more than the blackest of all black shirts times infinity. 

Don’t be left out!
