Dear PiPl Friends,
We at long last have our Plover Tees!!! And it was well worth the wait, better than imagined! When picking up the shirts at Seaside Graphics, a customer purchased one on the spot!
The tees are available for sale at our wonderful local bakery and home goods shop, Alexandra’s Bread, located at 265 Main Street in Gloucester.
These T-shirts are luxuriously silky soft, 100 percent cotton and wash beautifully! We have two different blues, basically because I couldn’t decide which one everyone would like better 🙂 The Cerulean is a pretty sky blue and the Celestial is a more like a dreamy foggy day, powdery blue.
Mostly Large and Xlarge are available with this batch, with a few mediums and one small remaining. The cost of the T-shirt is $30.00.
If you purchase a T-shirt or sticker, please send a photo. I am planning on asking friends and family to model the shirts, but in the meantime, our clothesline will have to do.
The chest measurements of the Unisex Tees are as follows.
Small – 18 inches (total 36inch circumference), to fit 34-37 inch chest
Medium – 20 inches, to fit a 38-41 inch chest
Large – 22 inches, to fit a 42 -45 inch chest
Xlarge – 24 inches, to fit a 46-49 inch chest
Example – the large measures 22 inches across the front, which equals 44 inches total chest circumference, which would fit a 42-45 inch chest, depending on how you like your Tee to fit.
If you are not sure which size you would like, measure your favorite T-shirt, across the front, from underarm to underarm seam at the chest line at the widest point, and then double that measurement.
Years ago we had Plover T-shirts, thanks to former PiPl ambassador Heather Hall, and ever since then, we have been wanting to do it again. We are so grateful to designer Beth Swan, who created our Plover logo for both stickers and for the tees (the stickers are also available at Alexandra’s Bread). Beth was so fantastic to work with and I highly recommend her beautiful, thoughtful (and fun) designs. You can see a small sampling of Beth’s work here.
Many thanks too, to Seaside Graphics Samantha and Will for their fantastic customer service and speedy printing!
All profits will initially go toward purchasing more stickers and tees and then towards the fundraiser for the forthcoming documentary “The Piping Plovers of Moonlight Bay.”
