    Cool! Glad you're liking them! Wear it with pride!

    All shirts have been sent out as of today (I just entered the last couple of addresses). The shirts are shipped with USPS for United States and UPS for international. You should have received an e-mail with tracking info (if your spam filter didn't catch it, these are automated messages).

    Keep the photos coming!

    I have some other great news. Doing all this t-shirts stuff for the first time quickly made me realise that handling merchandise, packaging, shipping is a lot of work. I had all the t-shirts shipped to the Expo hotel and you should have seen me sitting with big stacks of shirts in boxes in our room, wondering what the heck I was going to do with all these shirts. It was then when I figured: "I didn't think this through".

    Fortunately, I bumped into Tim and Kristin from Mezelmods and today I'm happy to announce that I have partnered up with them to handle all inventory, packaging and shipping for Pinside merchandise. Awesome!

    We are currently selling the Ryan Claytor shirt, but also cool Pinball (R)evolution and official Pinside Logo tees.

    You can find them here: https://pinside.com/pinball/market/pinside

    One more thing: if you are in the USA and haven't received your t-shirt pre-order by the end of this month, please PM me and I will lookup your order status.

    If you are outside the USA, it could take a bit longer. Up to 10 days, I was told.

    For all t-shirt pre-order related questions: PM me!

    So does this mean you're not doing the design that the hot chick is wearing?

    #154 5 years ago

    I got it & "Mod it" mine

    Nice "mod", Tecumseh!

    #156 5 years ago

    Is the shirt made with Bally Williams parts?

    #158 5 years ago

    I'm in for an astronaut version.

    Man, no kidding. There are times when I wish I was outsourcing my translite stuff to someone, I've taped up so many boxes ... Nice work hooking up with Team Mezel!

    #161 5 years ago

    Awe... I was so excited, I just ripped open the package. It's lost all of its NIB value. I guess this is the "unboxing" photo. Looks great. image-900.jpg

    Don't worry about it! Just like pins are meant to be played, this shirt is designed to be worn!

    Me too! Stay tuned, when I have some spare time I will tweak Vid's suggestion into something printable and see if we can get this printed.

    Many thanks, mine arrived down under today.
    Looks great, good quality and it easily fits even the huskiest of gents like myself

    Thanks for the great feedback, Jdfitzy-in-Aus! I've been accused of being "husky" in my youth, so I can appreciate a good husky-fit. Glad it arrived safely.

    Thanks for jumpin' on-board for this, Mezels! I hear about your products on The Pinball Podcast all the time and tried to stop by to introduce myself at Expo, but you were SWAMPED every time I sauntered over. Regardless, thanks for the distribution with the shirts.

    robin Maybe it’s time to design a new T-shirt. It’s been 5 years since this design and I’d like a new Pinside shirt.

    #177 6 months ago

    Good idea!!

    #178 6 months ago

    what ever happened with the idea of running the astronaut t-shirt?

    I had forgot about that design. It would be a good contender for the next shirt.

    I have been using that for the back ground screen on my laptop for a couple of years now!

    #181 6 months ago

    I'd definitely buy one of the astronaut designs.

    I just launched a Pinside Merchandise store! Go and check it out here: https://pinside.com/pinball/market/shops/1010-pinside-shop and order some cool shirts, just in time for Expo. It's currently just three designs, but I hope to add more stuff soon. At least we can now finally send people some Pinside merch

    Quoted from j_m_:

    what ever happened with the idea of running the astronaut t-shirt?

    I tried my best to get in touch with the designer, but he/she didn't respond. And I'm not going to officially run a design without the consent of the artist.

    #183 6 months ago

    Looks like me on the phone, pre-ordering. Well, me with more and grey-less hair.

    #184 6 months ago

    Doing any with pocket

    #185 6 months ago

    And for those of you that will be at Expo this month, Robin has donated 2 of each the Pinside Robot (designed by Scott Gullicks) and Pinside (R)evolution to the Project Pinball Silent Auction. Stop by the booth to see them in person and bid! Thank you for your support!
