I always need new shirts ;)

We @ syn2cat are using spreadshirt (http://syn2cat.spreadshirt.net) unless there are special occasions (I.e. our summercamp), because it involves no financial risks. (Just-in-time production).

In theory, all of our members could provide their designs, but as so often, I'm the only one who dares to put up his n00b-skill designs.

Unfortunately, they don't have any socks, I'd need some too ;)
