CPL Merchandise (Official and Fan)

Recommended Posts

My purchase of a t-shirt from HFX says it was paid to ENTRIPY CUSTOM CLOTHIN-OAKVILLE.

So I suppose that in Halifax they are using the services of a company in Ontario, to customise gear for merchandising.

This suggests that there could be a general recommendation for such services from the CPL. If so, we'll see if other teams use the same company or not. Or that simply in Nova Scotia they did not find a company that could perform the service for them adequately, and sourced this one independently.

It does suggest that purchases being made by fans in Nova Scotia will be having their merchandise shipped from Ontario, which does seem odd and perhaps an unnecessary overcost.

I ordered a t-shirt, the grey with the alternative logo. They charged 24, plus tax, then 15 for shipping, with is 5 bucks more than HFX shipping via their merchandise producer also based in Ontario. 

I'd like to see teams being a bit more judicious about costing on this, there is no reason to gouge on shipping when similar methods are being used. Cavalry FC used Canada Post and they were efficient and reasonably priced.

Agreed about the pricing, you'd think that they would want as much merchandise out there as possible. Btw my Cavalry T was $20. + $1 tax and no shipping costs.

There is definitely a wide range in pricing between the cities.  Cavalry golf shirts are $45, Valour sell them for $60 and I think Forge are selling them for $50 (their website seems to be down so I can't double check).  They all look pretty much the same quality.  $60 for a golf shirt feels crazy to me.  I wonder if anyone has actually bought one.

I assume you are in Montreal?

They charged me 20 plus 1.35 tax plus 7 dollars shipping. That seems reasonable.

Why would Hamilton charge more than double for Canadian shipping, that is senseless.

Yes I'm in Mtl, and I don't understand such big differences in pricing either.

Just ordered t-shirt from FC Edm  (most expensive so far $42, taxes and shipping inc.). So far these 4 are the only ones I see that are available on line.

Even with the logo enormous on the hoodie or whatever it is, the PFC is still way too small. I am surprised they have not been tweaking things since the launch.

The Van*Isle does have potential.

edit: just FYI this is a rendering and the final product will not be exactly as shown - the fringe is not supposed to be that long.
