Hey guys,
We are putting together a national team and one of the things we would like is team T-Shirts and warm-ups

For warmups I'm looking for 2 pc --- something like a nylon shell, probably lined, zip up type --- hood optional

I see stuff like this at foot locker all the time ---- anywhere cheaper that specializes in teams? We'd order at least 10 so hopefully somewhere that can offer us a discount for that.

Oh, and being able to custom embroider our team name is bonus.

When we were setting up the competition team from my dojo we just got warm-up suits from a small sports shop in a local village. Because it wasn't part of a group of chain store sports shops then we were able to 'haggle' and get a good deal. We also got some t-shirts printed through the shop and we got a big discount because we agreed to have the shop logo on the t-shirts as well as the name of our regular sponsor!!
If you can't get a good deal from a local shop, then try the internet MA websites. MA stuff can often be cheaper if you're buying in bulk for a dojo.

Yeh id go with local small businesses. our amateur group which trains intermitently used iron-on-transfers for T-shirts as a test and they've performed well, even on a trainign t-shirt. cheap and effective! but for somehting more professional id go as others have reccomended.
