Irish air corps goodies

Post by dirk »

Hi guy's

I'm tasked with setting up the PR for the Irish air corps. I'ts just to make the public more aware that there is an Air corps out there. ALL the profit goes to the newly opened air corps museum.

What i want to ask is what would you concider buying?

Polo shirts with the A/C chrest on the left brest are being concidered
They will cost around 25 euro each.

Cool stilletto pens are also being looked at.

What else would you like to see? Stickers, patches, posters, T-shirts
caps?


Lets hear it!!!!!!!!! :wink:

polo shirst sound like a nice idea - how about a colder weather top to wear in a/c during winter months. I think hiker's / walker's 'micro-fleece' top would be ideal they're incredibly warm (and somewhat windproof) and in no way bulky - perfect for winter flying.

A Norwiegan- like what the army has. They're toasty!

I have seen some really class Pics of the air corps aircraft, that I would love to have as posters.

Hi guy's

the fleeces might be worth looking into.

as for the posters they are pretty expensive. About 2 euro for an A-3 sized poster.
if anyone knows who might be able to do this cheaper give me contact details and i'll get onto it.

What about a cap/beenie or woolen gloves with the Air corps logo embroidered on the front?

BTW: The Polo shirts can be personalised (your name embroidered on the bottom of the right sleeve. Or any other place you want.)
:D

You should WELL be able to get them cheaper then that. I used to do event promotion, we got 500 full colour glossy A3 posters @ 300dpi for 70 cent each. That was 2 years ago, but you should still be able to get them cheaper than 2 quid.

It depends on where you go and the quantity you order. 500 is the minimum run for value. Any lower qty and they will quote you a really high price as a way of telling you to eff off. Kinda like when a 17 year old rings the car insurance company to get a qoute for an evo 6.

Hi

Sweat shirts, Tee shirts and Caps are a good idea. Also Patches are also a good idea. These would sell well when the Air Corps attend foreign air shows. I got a tee shirt a few years ago and basicallly I have worn it out. I have tried to get new ones but alas none available. When the sweat/tee shirts come out, I will buy one if the price is reasonable.

Hi lads,

what would you call a reasonable price of t-shirts? 15 euro?

Nanolight, can you give me the contact details of that company from the posters? Thanks.

I've been in contact with Flt Sgt James Perkins and i've sent him a catalogue to see what we can order. I've also found cool mugs onto which i'm thinking i'll print the A/C logo. They'll go at about 5 euro each.

As for the museum, it's on base and you have to put in an application to some guy before you can go into the museum. I'll find out who to contact and let you know soon.
This poblem of getting into the museum should be over soon as we're planning to build a separate building for it so you can visit when ever you like. But i'll keep ye posted on this.
:wink:

iSupply in Lisbaun industrial estate, Galway, but to be honest, any decent printers shop should do them for you.

I also agree with whoever said about the beanie hat with the air corps logo on it. That WOULD be class!
