Preparing to reopenthe Krewe Store

The Krewe Store has been defunct for a while.  There have been many requests over the last six months or so for Krewe items and civies (civilian clothes with Krewe logo.) We are finally in a position where we can manage the store through the website properly.  

Phase 1:

  1. Enable purchases directly through the website.

  2. Establish a means for Krewe members to pay dues (annual or monthly) on the website.  

  3. Establish a means for donors to set up recurring payments.

Phase 1 is complete.  Payment through the site was thoroughly tested with the shotgun raffle. And one recurring donation has been set up.

Phase 2:

Open the store for Krewe apparel (civies.). In the past, we have ordered tee shirts printed in bulk to reduce cost.  The down side to this is some of that inventory can sit for an extremely long time.  To avoid tying up Krewe funds on apparel inventory, I have worked out a deal with a local veteran-owned shop that does custom printing and embroidering.  Minimums for us will be twelve items of the same customization but can be different products.  For example, 12 shirts with an embroidered logo, but they can be any type of shirt we choose to offer.  We cannot mix shirts and hats or embroidered shirts with printed shirts for example to meet the minimum.  

 

I propose we take pre-orders for apparel.  We would plan to place an order about every 60-days to help reach minimums.  If we have more than 20 like items pre-ordered in a month, we'll place the order early.  If we get orders for say five caps in a month, we can post on the forum that there's a request for caps in case anyone else was thinking about it.  Below are photos, descriptions, expected pricing of the apparel suggested for offering. The cost will be for finished goods and does include a little profit for the Krewe.

Phase 2 is underway.

Phase 3:

Open the store for Krewe gear and trinkets and baubles.  Here we are barely started.  We need to decide what we want to offer and how to source it.  Below the apparel I will identify items that have been sold through the old store.  It is likely some, most, or even all of these items will have to be purchased in some bulk quantity.

Along with the reopen, I propose a couple other things to consider: 

  • For apparel, do we want to stick with just black or open it up to select colors?  If we use an alternate color, should we use the ragged black flag in the background of the skull and bones?

  • Should we consider an alternate logo?  I love the current skull and bones, don't get me wrong.  But I wonder if that might make some potential larger sponsors not take us seriously.  We are a pirate krewe but we are also a registered charity.  Maybe we should promote that a little better.  I prepared two secondary logos to consider.  You'll find them below as well.

Please use the like and dislike buttons on each item.  If we get enough responses on the clothing we may not need a krewe vote for items and colors.
