    Sample of Eithne Cap



    Sample cap of the LE Eithne design, we had to modify the design slighly but this is the finished product.

    It will be produced on Navy Baseball caps.

    Individual names can be added for an extra €5 (€3 of that going to charity in addition to the €6)

    You should try contacting some one onboard and try to sell them there.

    I have placed an initial order for 10 caps, they will be as above but in Navy color with the Gold thread.

    These can be purchased through the store.

    I like the idea however unless its very poor photo I'm not exactly in love with the finished product.

    I appreciite that replicating the sillouette would cause some difficulties, its not as I thought it would be.

    Its not the best of pics as I couldnt focus close enough to get a decent pic, not to mention an overbright flash

    What particular aspect did you not like?

    The height of the funnels is dispropotionate and doesn't highlight the instantly recognisable features of Eithne.

    the bow is far too raked and should be shorter and sharper.

    have a look at the graphic used in the add its far more like the actual sillouette

    that would be the picture not being taken straight on, the graphic in the add is what was used to create the image on the cap. I will try to get a straighter image (it was taken looking down at the cap) or if your in Dublin you can have a look at it directly.

    Hopefully I'll be able to source better sillhouettes for future caps.

    I know I'm going to hell for this but I thought it was a silhouette of Manhattan with the Statue of Liberty in the background.

    does that mean that the current stock is void and new caps are being sold??

    would be a good idea to show the item here before stock is ordered??

    Current stock void?

    Emmm no, just means new pics needed

    I will be in cork on Wednesday and will show it to Goldie and he can give his opinion as to whether it looks like Eithne or the Statue of Liberty

    That shilouette was created from a side on image of the Eithne, although Goldie has said he has the ones from the recruitment posters so we will see how that goes.

    Goldie has informed me that he found the shilouettes and that they include the helicopter on Eithne but none for P50 class, if anyone has one for the P50 class can they please send them to me.

    Cheers

    Folks

    I have put together new designs based on the shilouettes that Goldie sent me and a sample of a hat he had.





    There is one design issue, can people please advise which of the two images below is better for the embroidery?

    This is not a complaint
    but
    P.20 - L.E Deirdre
    P.21 - L.E. Emer

    What do you mean abandon ship
    Are they taking requests?

    I think its fair to say that the silhouette for P20, will be the same used as that for P21, P22 and P23

    However, Yes P21 is Emer.

    That's funny because the image that came to my mind was a scene from The Mouse That Roared aboard Grand Fenwick's 'Warship".

    It's right here in the opening.
