‪A word about the shirt/hoodie price.  I had to start somewhere and the cost is based on the minimum order allowed by our supplier, which is 12 pieces.  If I get less than 12 shirt/hoodie ordered, I will refund the price of the shirt back to you.  We will receive a significant price break if there are more than 24 shirt/hoodies ordered.  If I receive orders for more than 24 shirt/hoodies by October 7th, I will refund $3 back to all who preorder.‬
