We are pleased to announce that America's Debate Shirts are finally available!

We first announced these way back in April. You're probably wondering what took so long, and so I'm going to explain it.

We worked with a local company to get the shirts printed, figuring that buying local (and American) was a good thing. Our first run of shirts with this company was back in December of 2004. They were given to the staff for their hard work and were used as giveaways at the chats. We were pleased with the quality of the shirts, so we ordered a bunch more.

When we went to pick them up, we found that the printer used the wrong shirts. They were supposed to use American-made 100% cotton Hanes shirts. Instead, they used Gildan Activewear brand shirts that were made in Haiti (image).

The shirts are screenprinted to make sure that the design is permanent. The printing on the shirt should outlive the actual shirt. Some of the lines on the shirt, when inspected very closely, are not perfect lines (image). This is very minor and most people won't notice this, but we expected crisp, clean edges like the first run.

The printer was unwilling to reprint the order, so we were faced with the dilemma of trying to negotiate a discount, or trying to pursue a refund in court. We decided to negotiate for a discount, and were successful in getting 25% taken off our cost.

We were hesitant to make them available to AD members until we were positive that the shirts would hold up under wear without shrinking, fading, or falling apart. Jaime and I have now worn each of our two AD shirts for about 6 months. We've washed them at least a dozen times, if not more. The printing has held up perfectly. The shirts show no signs of excessive wear. All in all, they are in good shape. We are confident that you will be satisfied with your shirt.

So, we are now ready to make the shirts available, and pass the discount on to you.

Original price: $14.95
Discount price: $10.95 - 27% off!

We will ship the shirts USPS Priority Mail. The shipping cost for one shirt to most locations in the US will be $4.05. Multiple shirt orders will have a slightly higher shipping charge as they will likely exceed the 1lb threshold. Note: We will provide the actual shipping charges on your PayPal invoice or email invoice.

We will accept credit card via PayPal (you do not need a PayPal account to pay by credit card), and we will accept check or money order. Paying by check or money order will require you to send the check before your shirts are shipped, so please be aware that this will delay shipment of your order.

How to Order
Please send Mike a PM to order your shirt. Make sure you include the following information:
  • Quantity - How many do you want?
  • Size(s) - S, M, L, XL, XXL
  • Delivery Address - Make sure you include your name!
  • Payment Method - Check or Credit Card

DO NOT include any credit card numbers! PayPal will handle the transactions, and AD does not need any credit card information.

Thank you for supporting America's Debate!
