Canadian Thanksgiving, Canadian Citizenship, and Canadian Freemason T-shirt

We hope that everyone is having a great Canadian Thanksgiving day so far! We are feeling so blessed to be here in this great land of great people! My wife Rechelle and I are feeling very excited today knowing that we will take the Canadian Citizenship Test tomorrow! Wish us luck! Watch and listen to our twin toddlers sing O, Canada here. :-) 

Thanksgiving Deal

In 2014, we produced a small batch of this awesome 100 % Made in Canada t-shirts! 

Everything Good Come in Threes

I took inspiration from 3 things:

  1. The Canadian Flag
    This ringer t-shirt was custom made for us by Jerico according to our specifications (alternating red / white like the flag). These are not simply printed blanks- these shirts were made from scratch! 
  2. "O Canada"
    "With glowing hearts we see thee rise, The True North strong and free!" Canada is known around the world as a strong and free country
  3. Masonic Closing (letter)
    Sincerely and Fraternally, often abbreviated S&F

Production

This project was funded by my good friend and Brother Ben San Juan when he was still fairly new to the craft. Those from Toronto might recognize the name as he is the current TDV District Secretary.

Surplus

Because only a small batch was ever produced, the production cost of the t-shirts is up which meant higher retail price. The market wasn't ready. The retail price was simply too high at around $40 CAD. We decided to stop offering them and have forgotten about them until today because today is such a Canadian day for us (Thanksgiving today and Citizenship Test tomorrow)!

Limited Quantities

At this moment, we have Medium sizes only (10 units white, 12 units red). I'm pretty sure there are other sizes somewhere but I don't have the time to go through our stuff. I'll update this if in case we find other sizes.
