so there certainly will be a difference if have to create a new shirt from
scratch. So is it therefor a big difference if you order now e.g. 20'000
and then nothing for a year or if you order now 2'000 and later 15'000

The whole shirt sounds pretty 'cheap' - it's one you also like to sell,
like to buy and like to wear, isn't it? Still not everything what is
"cheap" has to be bad ;-)

Probably there is interest from resellers who sell software under the gnu
gpl to sell these t-shirts, too. If we could get orders from them already
now we would have a basis of calculation prices and stuff ...

just my 0.5-1EUR :)
