Great items listed on your gear site, http://www.cafepress.com/arizonalandrover

Might I suggest that you add some ball caps with the logo on them?

Hi Dennis -

I tried a sample order on a ball cap and was disappointed in the quality of both the hat and the logo on it. They just screen print the logo on the hat, and on my example it wasn't even on straight. We do have oval logo patches - I don't remember what we charge but with a little needle and thread you can put one on a ball cap that you actually like and it will look much better.

The patch sewn onto the cap was the way I was referring to. I have some patches I bought at the dinner and will sew my own, but offer them for sale with the patch sewn on would be sweet !
