Announcing the the 2012 TBTN t-shirt!

This year the t-shirts are printed on union made shirts in a union shop.  Thank to Cavan for manufacturing and printing our shirts for us!

The shirts will be black with metallic gold ink and come in both fitted and not fitted styles.

Where can I buy one?
T-shirts will be available at TBTN near the SACHA table.  We’ll also be selling the t-shirts at the SACHA office as soon as they arrive from the printers…  Excitedly waiting!

How much do they cost?
As in other years, we are selling the shirts are on a sliding scale from $15 to $30.  You make the choice about how much to give to SACHA depending on what you think you can afford.  To make each t-shirt costs us between $13 and $17 – depending on the size and style of the shirt.

We are hoping that some folks who can afford it will pay on the higher end of the scale to help subsidize the folks that are paying on the lower end of the scale.

What do you do with money raised from t-shirt sales?
If we do make money off of t-shirt sales at TBTN, the profits go back into the cost of putting on an amazing Take Back the Night in Hamilton.

What about free stuff?
We totally recognize that not everyone will be able to afford $15 for a t-shirt.  At the SACHA table we have TBTN buttons and patches for free.

How can I pay?
Unfortunately, we don’t have a fancy debit/credit machine, so if you are interested in buying a shirt please remember to bring some cash…
