How about restocking the missing "RV-12" decals in BLACK in 6" and 12" sizes. They have been unavailable for several years. Could use some "RV-12" hats as well.

Thumbs up Idea

How about some VAF Vansaircraft and Osh on the same shirt to sell at OSH it would be a hit covering all the bases.Same for S-N-F.but not many RV guys go there like OSH so scratch that.

Default I'm loving all these ideas..

..and I'm glad someone finally came out and said what I've been thinking all these years. I bought several 40th anniversary T-shirts and they have all died already. I think there is a lot of opportunity there in the merchandise, since there is such a large customer base.

So, here's my best idea for you:

- Include the "cost" of a nice hat and shirt in the price of your Tail Kits and send that swag along with every new tail kit purchased. That way, your new builder immediately can begin to advertise for you! Other than first flight, I can't think of a prouder moment in a builder's journey than when the first boxes begin to appear...

Default shirt idea

A few years ago I bought a shirt at Oshkosh in the homebuilder's shack.
On the back it said "It's not what you can buy, its what you can build"
I loved that shirt, I wore it all the time and eventually it was not wearable. I went back to the shack over the last couple years and the nice folks there remember the shirt but it was not replaces as a product.
Maybe Van's can use the line and put it together with Van's graphics?
Just an idea,
Larry

This is one selfish reason why I didn't mind getting my wife that embroidery machine last christmas. She is very creative and will design our shirts with a pic of our plane and N number when I get it done. I wonder if vans will sue me if the word "vans" or "RV" shows up on one of my shirts.

I placed a $200 order with anti splat and they sent a hat with it. I placed a $7500 order with vans and I have to buy a hat at their booth. Hmmmmmm.
