In the past, the KLA has ordered logoware in bulk and offered it to our members at cost, or given the items as prizes. This requires that the KLA choose a limited number of items and pay up front for those, then hope that we have ordered the styles or sizes people will like and want to purchase. Sometimes the inventory sits around for a long time, volunteers have to store it themselves, and then have to collect the funds from you and find ways to get your items to you. It's a lot of work and doesn't always get members what they're looking for.
This year for the first time, we have taken out the middle man so that YOU can order exactly the items you want in the colours, sizes and styles that you like the best - directly from the producer - and have those shipped to you. The KLA is not responsible for the items you select or purchase and makes no profit on the sale; we simply send the logo to the producer so they can print it on the items of your choosing. The purchase arrangement is directly between you and the company.
June 2021 Update: the KLA did research multiple companies, and did test the quality of a t-shirt, before choosing TeeSpring, and we found it to be acceptable. However, we have had reports recently that some items did not meet members' expectations. If this applies to you, we encourage you to contact TeeSpring directly, and please email us to let us know, although the KLA is not responsible for the items. We are presently looking for other companies that may offer more consistent quality and shipping prices, and will update this page if we find a new provider.
