Pirate Themed Greepers Laces

Any takes - actually more like any 200 takers?

All,

Was speaking with Peter from Greepers about whether or not they could do a custom pirate version as I was ordering a set for myself.

So the scoop is that it's all do-able but it would be a custom order, can do yellow laces, black toggle and the pirate logo on the pull tab. I think it would look pretty cool.

There's a minimum batch order for custom manufacturing of 250 units, so I think 200 takers to make it feasible with a batch of 50 spare for stragglers.

The RRP for Greepers is £8.95 and I think we could easily beat that so say £7.95 as I've not really thought about the postage but I think about £1 would cover it, included in the £7.95.

But before I go and do anything on this I thought I'd just see if there was the demand as 200 units (ideally 250) isn't chicken feed and I don't ant to be sitting on £1000 worth of pirate laces in my garage.

If I'm stepping on anyone's toes with regards to being master of the kit order / distribution then shout - you're more than welcome to take this admin

I've put a picture of a version done for Marie Curie Cancer Care on the facebook page as the image is too large for here.

I'd have a couple of pairs for sure.  Good luck to anyone who takes on this task.

I'd take a couple of pairs off your hands too. They'd survive many pairs of shoes I suspect ?

Yip - a bit like elastic / lock laces in that regards but I'm ditching my elastic laces as the tension isn't even and causes discomfort in my feet. I'd seen a few other complain and even get injured / DNF because if this problem so just ordered the Greepers.

Saw a cool post from them where someone only had the use of one arm so could still use normal shoes with these, same I suppose goes for arthritis.

Funkin - I was going to do...nothing else going on in my life so the thought of posting out 200+ pairs of laces just fills me with joy!

 

OK 5 gone - just 245 to go....at this rate we'll be sorted June!
