The site is pretty specific i think when it comes to marketing or similar things. I recall trying to find the proper channel and it pretty much was against solicitation. Understandably you aren't trying to solicit so much as facilitate a perceived need. That being said the idea was left with Admin and they have not replied. For what ever reasons its something they arent interested in right now. There could be a multitude of reasons apart from logistics that make this idea undesirable.
+5 points for taking it to a whole nother level LOL. sorry was a SNL knee slapper there.
id like a hat but as i said who knows what the gracious hosts of this wonderful site have in mind in terms of a business plan. Quite frankly some things are none of our business.

Some how I doubt many people would want to pay the prices that such t-shirts and hats would end up costing. I know that we have a bunch of regular members that wouldn't mind, but most people are just here for the bonuses
But, GomerAssasi, are you saying that you can handle both production and distribution? If yes, how? (and also, if you were to do it, I assume eventually you will want to get paid for your efforts, which again would make the stuff more expensive).

Gomer, id be more then willing to help fund the initial order for production if thats an issue. Generally ive found you really need to pop off a large number in production to salvage any costs you can.
Essentially all you really need is permission to use their logo. A webpage is pointless since BRM would likely facilitate a space here for your needs. brm.com will want the lions share as its their traffic and their logo which makes sense. I see no real initial chance to turn a profit without overpricing. Id suggest if this is something you are dead set upon and terms are worked out with admin, to make a poll and gauge interest. Possibly you could get enough orders to safely launch into production. This is why i offered some capital. In the event the demand isnt high you can still make enough to save costs whilst having a supply on hand if someone is interested.
yeah; not an entirely different website but a box/link at the top of the home page that takes you to the store. Payments made by CC or online banking institution and then maybe trading mob points for stuff. Don't know exactly how that works. I'm not a computer guy.
As for the start up costs; that will have to be discussed with BRM. I don't know if they want investors yet.
I have sent admin and email requesting permission to use the logo for prototype(s) purposes.
I also have a 2000 square foot retail space that can be used for shipping/receiving.
Setting up a poll or what not sounds like a good idea. (except I don't know how to)
umm still in the uber early stages. not really going to do much if I don't get permission and then it might not be at all feasible in the end.
thanks for the support...off to check the email. I will keep the forum posted.

"The BankrollMob" is intriguing name and could be a good idea for a T-shirt, site Logo looks also interesting.....and another good thing is: it doesn't show directly connection to poker or gambling generaly.... JUST A PERFECT MYSTERY NAME.....for sure better, than for example PokerStars. BRM crew should really think about it.

This was my idea. It seems there is quite a bit of interest. I would definitely buy an overpriced shirt, just bc I love this site so much. Not too mention the BRM logo's r really cool. I would def rock hats,hoodies, or t-shirts. U could also do keychains & card protectors, decks of cards, ect. Plus if I'm wearing some BRM gear when I hit a final table. Bink! Free advertising. I'm very interested in seeing if this idea develops into something.

I remember, a few years ago there was talk about t-shirts.
I declared I was interested, since I was sure I would get a lot of p***y wearing such an item, and then there maybe was some talk about BRM sending out prints you could like iron on to a t-shirt yourself.
