Default GIMPS shirts

I was thinking about the GIMPS polo shirts that Ernst Mayer made, and I combined the idea with the GIMPS logo I made, resulting in GIMPS polo shirts and t-shirts in black and blue colors, with embroidered logos on the chest (logos are attached). I also thought about making special edition shirts for prime discoverers with the prime in the 2^p-1 form on the back.

I accept ideas for other colors and variants. I made a poll to get an idea about the number of shirts to order.

Non-final prices are:
T-shirt = 8 € (about 8.75 $)
Polo shirt = 12 € (about 13 $)

Shipping is at most 9,1 € (about 10 $), depending on the country, but in most cases, it's 6 or 7,2 € (about 6,5 $ and 7,8 $). Countries, where I can ship to, are:
entire Europe + Argentina, Brasil, Canada, China, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Japan, S. Korea, Mexico, Russia, Thailand, Turkey, and the USA, including U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and Guam.

Unfortunately, I don't have a cheap way of shipping to other countries.

If you look at the world map UK is drifting away from rest of Europe, how much it costs to ship there? Hurry up otherwise costs will keep raising by drifting pace. Thank you in advance.

Nice work, Viliam - since GIMPS has a lot of US members, I suggest considering using a US-based imprint service (e.g. 4imprint.com) to create shirts from your logo. I don't know if any of them do individual-item ordering and shipping, to keep costs reasonable it would likely be necessary to ship them in batches to one more US-based GIMPS members who would then forward individual ones.

Or, once you have a better idea of demand and/or a set of pre-orders, see if any GIMPSers will be traveling between your neck of the woods and the US in the coming months, who wouldn't mind filling their suitcase with stylish contraband.

I'd be definitely ordering one (not important which of those four) to Germany.

For the USA there is 6 € shipping (about 6,50 $) and it should arrive within 5-7 working days. Prices of the shirts themselves, on the website you posted, are about the same. I don't think there will be a huge cost difference if I order it in the USA. For the comfort of myself, I am probably going to stick with the original plan.

And even if somebody ordered more shirts so that the package would be under 1 kg, it would be 16 $ shipping, and under 2 kg it's 26 $. If you are interested in the pricing, you can look at the page of our national postal service in the English version (here)

That's interesting - usual I find shipping to Europe via USPS cheaper than the other way around, but back in late February I sent a GIMPSer in Sweden one of the remaining few shirts of the ones I had made up years ago, and the cheapest shipping option was a massive $25. Basic polo shirt, around 16 ounces (~450g) packed up.

Default Form for orders

I created a Google form for orders (here).

I will contact everyone who fills the form, asking for confirmation of the order. Other information is in the form.

I think you'll find that is illegal under European privacy laws.

IANAL: Since Google claims to go with European privacy laws, it should be sufficient if Viliam mentions in the form:
  1. Why he needs to collect the data.
  2. What he will do with the collected the data.
  3. When he will erase the data.
  4. That he will accept all applications that are valid regarding GDPR.
