Shirts by Shurts - Polo Shirts for Gamers

$14,356

Final Hours for the campaign!  Here's what happened since it started:

Also, Tall sizes for Men and a Local Pick-Up option was added.

I love board games. I enjoy sitting down with family and friends and playing a game together. Its a great opportunity to catch up with friends. Board games offer me the chance to help my kids learn important life lessons and skills. They give my wife and me a quiet night in after the kids are in bed.

I wanted to show off my love of gaming to others.  I have picked up a few t-shirts over the years, but nothing I could wear to the office.  After not finding what I wanted, I created Shirts by Shurts. These polo shirts offer a professional look while still showing off my favorite hobby.  Now I'm sharing this product with you.  I hope they start conversations at the office and give people a chance to spread this great hobby to others.

Each polo shirt features a simple, but easily recognizable, symbol from the world of table top games. A crest design is embroidered in a contrasting color on the left chest.

I evaluated many suppliers to find a polo shirt that matched my quality standards.  I've worn and washed these shirts many times and am very happy with the final product.

  • Tagless: There's no tag scratching your neck
  • Poly/Cotton Blend: The soft touch of cotton, but no shrinking and easy care
  • Pique Texture: For its great look and durability
  • Range of Sizes: Available in Men's from S to 6XL and Women's from XS to 4XL.

Thanks to all of the wonderful backers, there are now there are 10 designs to choose from in a variety of colors:

 

 

 

Thanks to all of our wonderful backers we have unlocked all of the possible Stretch Goals for this campaign!

 

I brought the four designs to Gen Con 50 in August and here is some of the feedback I've received from happy customers:

I chose to get the Meeple one [VP]. It's subtle enough that most people won't even notice it but gamers will instantly recognize the meeple. I'm very happy with the polo; it feels and looks great. Well done! - Charles D.

 Love these shirts. I even wore the green one with the hexes for teaching Scythe last Friday. - Patrick O.

I love my D20 polo from Shirts by Shurts. It gives me a +1 on rolls for printer jam recovery. The material is breathable and soft. Great fit, too! - Andrew S.

 

 I'm keeping the reward levels very simple - choose the level for how many shirts you want. For levels with multiple shirts, each shirt can be a different size and a different design.

After the Kickstarter ends, a survey will be sent out to each backer allowing them to select the size and design for each shirt ordered.

For Extended and Tall sizes add these amounts to your pledges now.  Once the campaign is over you won't be able to edit your pledge.

Tall Sizes are also available up to 3XLT in limited colors:

Want more than 5 polo shirts? Select the 5 Polo Shirts pledge level, then add $22 for each additional shirt. For backers outside of the US, add $24 for each additional shirt. Make sure to also include any additional charges for larger sizes.

 

 

These shirts will all be shipped from the US.

Risks and challenges

Shirts by Shurts is a one man company with some help from family and friends. It's possible that there would be delays to the schedule. I have deliberately kept the scope of this project small to reduce the chance of delays. Although this is my first "Created Project" on Kickstarter, I successfully ran a campaign for Great Northern Games so I am fully aware of the requirements and challenges of this project.
