When we got back from timesharing at Hilton Head today, my t shirt was waiting in my accumulated mail. It is a high quality shirt with excellent printing (several colors used) and the fit is perfect. Great job Michael.

I put together this graphic to show the shirt colors, logo type and logo size/location options available on Amazon.



Here's the link: TUG Shirts on Amazon
Only one of these four logo designs has been ordered so far. Amazon will leave a design up indefinitely as long as at least one order gets placed. If nobody orders within 90 days of a design being posted, they automatically remove that design. If anyone wants one of these logo shirts, you need to order them within the next couple months to make sure they don't go away.

We ordered and received four of these (2 for my wife in pink and 2 in white for me for me) through Amazon.
They look great, however the tee shirt quality is not so good. After just 2-3 washings, the seamed hems at the bottom have begun to unravel and the threads that hem the bottom are just hanging down.
It's a shame that we will have to wear them tucked in to avoid the embarrassment and not on the outside, i.e. island style.

well thats disappointing to hear, hopefully its not something that happens to all the shirts! ill wait to hear from michael on these amazon shirts. im not quite sure if amazon is just producing them themselves (or thru a vendor)...or michael is actually making these?

in the shirts I ordered previously thru Michael, they have held up great for years! but the amazon stuff is all new!

I am interested about this. I was considering adding a shirt to my next Amazon order. A little concerned about the quality after your report.

Amazon prints these on a lightweight Anvil shirt. I've never been a fan of the lightweight shirts, and we use a heavyweight Gildan shirt for our own printing.

I haven't ordered one of the TUG ones from Amazon, but I have ordered other shirts that Amazon prints. The shirt quality seemed okay, but the print seems to fade a bit quicker than I would like.

Amazon customer service is usually very good about refunds and returns. If you get one that doesn't hold up, definitely reach out to them and ask for a replacement or a refund.

Amazon does allow us to set a design up to use a premium Bella+Canvas shirt, but the price is $2 or $3 higher. It's still a lightweight shirt, but is a higher end brand. Whether it'll actually hold up better isn't clear.

With the technology we use for our own printing, we're limited to one or two colors, otherwise I would do all of them myself rather than using Amazon.

Apparently, it's 60 days without a sale before they remove designs. A couple of these have been removed. One other is pending removal. If you want one, don't delay or they'll be gone.

Sweet, I was able to buy the baby blue one... Now if we get harassed to go to a presentation or want to go for the goodies, we will all wear these...

Bluegreen Points Lodge Alley Inn.
Brewster Green (two weeks).
Here it is 2017 and I wasn't aware of these before! I cut through the courtyard of Bluegreen's Lodge Alley Inn often on my way elsewhere. On nice days, the salespeople often sit at tables outside as they talk to their prospects. I always want to yell "Run! Run!" I just see me wearing one of these as I cross through! Chuckle!

I can probably do that after Christmas. Amazon disabled the ability to add or update Amazon Merch shirts temporarily due to the higher demand.

Hi, new member here. Any chance of getting one of these awesome "I paid more.." shirts? My wife and I have our first timeshare stay booked and I would love to show my TUG pride in the "owners update" ^.^

ive resetup this campaign and it ill run for 7 days (and requires 10 orders to print). teespring now lets me continually rerun the campaign forever, so folks can always order a shirt from now on!


and the offer still stands if you buy this shirt and send me a photo of you wearing it on vacation at a timeshare, ill credit you with a free year membership to offset the cost of buying the shirt!
