Our organizer team has proudly worn Odysseus promo shirts for a year now, and now our players can get a shirt or hoodie - or some other cool promotion stuff - as well. Once it was announced that the sponsor ticket would include an Odysseus t-shirt, we were asked whether it was possible to buy the shirt separately. Here they are! In this blog post you can find all the necessary information about buying promo stuff from us!
We decided to use a third party supplier (Spreadshirt) for few reasons. Biggest being that they do all the logistics, which we really don’t have the time to concentrate on, as we want to focus fully on making the larp. They have a wide selection of products with decent size options, and they deliver all around the world. So even though there are some downsides like postage, limitations in sizes, and customer support being out of our hands, we decided that it would still be the best option.
Since we are using a third party provider, if there are any issues with the quality, delivery, or payment, you should contact their customer service directly. We have used the provider for a few other projects before, and their quality has been good. They have good and helpful customer support, should you encounter any issues.
Concerning sizes: unfortunately they have only a few products that have extra large sizes, and they cap at 3XL for ladyfit and 5XL for unisex shirts. When checking out the size charts, please note that the measurements are only across the chest, so to get full circumference, double this measurement. While we want to make our lives a little bit easier, we also want to be as inclusive as possible. So if there are no available sizes for you, please send us an email and we will look into it to see if we are able to make a custom order for those at a local supplier, with whom we also source some of the shirts for the rental uniforms. If this is possible, those custom shirts can be picked up at the location before the larp.
Every product purchased from the shop adds a small amount to our budget and allows us to buy a few more cool props to use in the larp. For products purchased after the larp, if there are no more expenses for us to cover, we will donate our cut to larp organizations such as Larpfund and Illusia ry (the association behind the Odysseus). Thus the shop will remain open at least some time after the event.
There are four different designs available. The available products might vary depending on the design. All the awesome designs have been created by Sara Kananen. The options are:
The shop has a variety of products available, including t-shirts, tank tops, long sleeved shirts, hoodies, jackets, caps, mugs, and bags. In the clothing, the print is either on the front or back. The size chart varies in different products, but we’ve aimed to provide products with a wide size and color selection in all designs.
and it has the ship emblem with a different text based on the original post of the character on the back - and possibly on a smaller size also on the front. Keep these perks in mind when making other purchases! We make the different versions of the ship emblem available as well so it is also possible to make custom orders with them.
You can find the shop here! Take a look and should you feel like it, support us by having a unique memory from this experience.
The shop has a 15% discount for the first 14 days (provided by the supplier)! Do note that it is possible to customize each of the products, and it is possible to change the size or the placement of the print.
