Boone Merchandise Available Online

Boone caps, mugs, shirts and merchandise is available on the "Boonetown" page on Cafepress. We've heard sales on the site benefit the DU Club Hockey Team.

I don't think the connection between the site and the club hockey team was formalized. I believe sales proceeds still go to an individual. I may be wrong though.

Oh well. It almost benefited the DU club hockey team.

Either way it doesn't benefit this site. I bought some shirts from the Boonetown site and they are good.

Site was working this morning. Not sure what the issue is.

Last year Cafe Press took down the site until the alums proved that they had the right to sell Boone merchandise.

Its great to have Boone merchandise but its too bad it has to be Cafe press. The quality of their clothing is awful and its pretty overpriced.

Any suggestions?

The students are going to be working on this project over the Winter Break and any input on similar companies would be appreciated.

I'd like to see this project and merchandise sales benefit the mascot, the band, and some club sports at DU. I doubt DU wants any proceeds from "Boone" merchandise sales to go to the varsity teams for political reasons.

Correction, the students are already working.

The reason cafepress works so well is that they allow for the printing of the exact image, rather than just shading an image in a particular color, then charging by color.

We will explore all options, however.

I've never had a problem with cafepress quality stuff. I got the 3/4 tee that's on the blog and i love it.

I would love to see a Boone embroidered patch so I can sew it onto my scarf, jersey etc.
