Hi again Folk,

Many thanks to all those that have contacted me about purchasing the 
custom OSM printed/logo'ed Hi-Vis Vests.  I'm please to announce that 
the order has now been placed with the printer and hopefully I'll have 
the printed vests sometime in the next 5 - 7 working days.  When they 
arrive, I'll be in touch directly with all those who have responded to 
me, to finalise the orders and organise dispatch, etc.

In the meantime, for those who maybe missed the first email, I have 
ordered the following spares, which are still available if you're 

1 x Small Size
3 x Medium Size
3 x Large Size
3 x XL Size
1 x XXL Size

The final price of the vests will be £8.50 and this includes the logo 
printed on both the back of the vest (as per the below mock-ups), but 
also on the front lapel.  As previously indicated, postage should be 
circa £2 within the UK (Royal Mail), with overseas shipping prices 
dependent on destination.

If you have not yet been in touch and wish to reserve one of the above 
spares, please contact me directly at "osm at sonicresolutions.com".  
Once these spares are gone, that's it for the time being (unless we can 
get together enough pre-orders for another run).

Kind regards,
