the last time we had some TShirts sponsored, I asked for who wanted it -
and had to parse emails coming in, match sizes, check postage issues and
email followups to people. It wasent easy, and took a fair bit of time.
And in the end, I had to limit emails down to only those people who
actually got Tshirts sent to them.
For the 70 odd Tshirts I had, there were 500+ requests.
We are going to be getting some more TShirts in the next few days - and
this time they are split between two designs, and multiple colours and
different sizes (ofcourse). It would be great if there was some s/w that
could be installed on one of our machines that would allow us to add the
tshirt quantities and sizes and colours in, and then let people
The shirts are sponsored, the postage + packaging isnt. So people would
still need to come up with a bit of money ( it should be quite nominal ).
I'm also talking to someone locally about sponsoring beer and coffee
mugs and a few other things ( its essentially what they do - make
glassware for large brands ). So this might be an ongoing thing.
So, my questions : is there anyone who can help with the online admin
side of things ? is there any recommended software that we can use ?
: I did think of a github repo, and ask people to merge request and
do it in that way, but that has no way for people to find out if their
size / colour / style is available and also most people would not want
their postal address and contact details in a public repo.
