Ok - so the shirt prices aren't that much out of line then. It just felt a bit steep as we pay 120 annual membership and 8 per game, and the shirts are not included in that.
That is steep. Your club may have fund raising issues!! How is your ground used in the winter and do you fleece your juniors enough?!

We pay 10 as they are subsidised. We have 1 sponsor.
My daughters club have 9 sponsors on their shirt. Her shirt cost 26 and bobbled after a couple of washes.
I would have thought that the more sponsors you had the cheaper the shirt would be. Clearly I'm mistaken. The more sponsors you have the more you pay to advertise for them. Rip off
Printing a logo is down to size, and how many colours used. Cost is from 3 per logo for even the smallest, upto 4.50. So 1 colour across the chest could be 3 and 1 on the sleeve 3

From the other end of the spectrum, we've been trying to find a good, UK supplier of clothing that can do embroidery/printing too. Looking at these prices, they seem pretty steep - so for 2019, we're looking to bring out teamwear that's sourced and embroidered/printed in the UK (to keep lead times to a minimum - It's one of the most frustrating things is the lead times of clothing being made in the sub continent) next year. We'd definitely be able to do these at a cheaper rate (for a standard s/s shirt with embroidered logo and printed sponsor) than pretty much most mentioned on here.

We're using Masuri this year through NXT Sports (http://teamwear.nxt-sports.com)

The leisure/training kit is really nice, great quality and fit with embroidered badges. Caps are Beechfield - best I've ever worn.

However the playing shirts are really quite sh*t - they fit badly, the material is cheap and the badges are screenprinted.

I always consider club kit to be a reasonable investment as I literally live in it all summer long. Our playing shirt is 28 with no sponsor logos.

Pretty much, especially as most sponsors will only be paying a small amount, 50 to 100 say. Which doesn't cover much if a club orders 60 shirts. As eluded to above, the cost of adding 9 printed sponsors logos would be in the region of 20 - 35 per shirt, never mind the actual cost of the shirt itself.

Snr short sleeve is 26 for us. Thats a GN matrix with embroided logo, 1 front sponsor and charity logo on the sleeve. Weve moved between Charlie French, Tylers, the infamous SQ sports, MKK and now GN.

GN easily the best Ive dealt with

I bet the margin on cricket clothing
is decent. High overheads and length of manufacture must make it a  tricky business to run though, given how many clothing companies have disappeared.

Thanks for that mate, we've also gone to them this year and I'd been considering whether it was worth buying the new shirt, won't bother!

Ooooh seems a lot of others use Surridge here - I've just bitten the bullet and bought a long sleeve playing top and trousers as I really like the styling.

There's nowhere round here in Somerset that stocks a decent amount of clothing brands to take a look at/try on so it's a case of buying blind most of the time.

Looking forward to seeing what they look like in the flesh.

We've moved to masuri this year and it's 30 for s/s and 33 for l/s. Contrary to what has been said before, I thought the playing shirt is actually quite decent. Definitely in agreement that their leisure stuff is great, I really like that

Club shirts will always be an interesting topic. Some include them in membership fees, some clubs contribute towards the costs, some have sponsors pay / contribute and for the other unfortunate souls players have to pay the full cost.

 Have known a few different methods, personally anytime you change a sponsor its good to include them in the annual fees, everyone is in the same kit, plus its a good way to make sure people pay annual fees!
