No promises on how long these prices will hold, we're at the whims of t-shirts.com.

Here's the bad news: That shipping price is only for the 48 continental USA states. Rates for Alaska, Hawaii or for other countries can be double the US shipping cost (or more).
I suggest that those outside the 48 contiguous US states should try to get a Rust buddy inside those states to order YOURS along with theirs, which gets the shirt(s) to them for nothing extra (or just a little more). Then your buddy can ship yours to you as a "gift" (for customs purposes) in a tyveck envelope (very light but plenty secure). Even overseas the shipping cost shouldn't be more than a few bucks (I hand shipped almost 100 of them that way last time, for about that.)
You folks in the "lower 48 states" who have buddies outside them, get in touch with your buddies to see if they want you to order one for them while you're ordering yours! Maybe a helpful Rustie can volunteer on Rust to place a few such orders for some of our overseas brothers and sisters?
NOTE: I'm not making a penny off this arrangement. In fact, I had to pay 30+ damn dollars for my "prototype" shirt from them (before I secured the quantity price for the rest of Rust). But the shirt turned out really nice, IMHO. And the t-shirts.com folks seem to be a reliable service, so I'm happy enough about this arrangement (except for their prohibitive non-US shipping prices).
Any questions or problems, fire away!
Below is the original run of the Rust Logo shirt, where a super deal was set up back in 1997 for an order of over 300 shirts, white and off-white only. Unfortunately the vendor back then ended up giving us a hard time about delivering all of the shirts. The current vendor (above) has been carefully selected to avoid that kind of situation this time.
Rock bottom group price for Rusties -- HALF the normal individual non-group shirt order price during our initial "mass order":
