Official launch of the Ultimatecarpage.com store

The summer heat is pounding most of us right now, so we thought it would be a great time to introduce our stylish T-shirts to help keep you cool. The Ultimatecarpage.com online store is now officially open for business.
To start, we have three different original sports car designs screen-printed on heavy duty t-shirts. There are plans in the future for baseball caps and other clothing, as well as Ultimatecarpage.com stickers and posters. The prices are great, with extra deals for subscribers. The ordering process is quite easy, so come on into the store and pick your favourites.
Maybe with the help of these shirts we'll all be able to recognize fellow Ultimatecarpage.com users at the upcoming summer car shows. Don't forget; it's never too early to start your Christmas shopping.

theyre probably very nice shirts, and i probably would buy one.......except for one thing thats holding me back..........

they are advertising a website. If wearing a shirt that advertises a website doesnt make you a huge nerd, nothing will.

Just so you know, the logos are on the back, with a small Ultimatecarpage.com logo centre chest.

No, since they are original representations of the cars, it's no different than taking original photographs of the cars and selling them. We also had the GT3 logo and PORSCHE on the rear of the GT3 but removed them to prevent any copyright logo concerns.

I somewhat agree. The pics are good etc, but for something to wear? Idunno. Imo more down to earth designs would've been better. Now what people see is just a car and a website. I would've liked a abstract picture that everyone wouldn't recognize, but car enthusiasts would. Like a black and white version of an easy guess the car
Perhaps this and more is already planned and will be done later? It would also be cool to have an Ucp logo... Something really cool. How about having a cometition + vote on designing that?

I would say: congrats to UCP admins! I think this is really a good plan! Are there plans to enlarge the shop in the future??

Did you have to get special permission to use the images of the cars on there? Mayhaps for the next round whenever it happens there could be one that is decided by a site-wide poll, of even make that a priviledge of supporting members. 'Become a supporting member and vote for a t-shirt'. Sounds good to me.

They look pretty good, I think I'll pick up one or two either today or tomorrow. BTW, if a friend tells you you're a nerd, just do what I do and tell them to STFU.. my friends kiss my shoes 50% of the time.

Also, lets say I ordered 2 shirts today (Size-L), how long would it take to ship to North Jersey, 5 mins from NYC? (In America of course, assuming the shipping is going down from Ontario)

Well, typical shipping times to NJ would be about 8-10 days max, but unfortunately the shirts are still in actual production right now. Due to the time of year, the screen-printing business is extremely busy, and we're expecting to have stock in hand within 2 weeks. Therefore, the first shipments will be slightly delayed, but I believe I can safely say that orders received this week will have their shirts on their backs before the end of the month.
