You will probably remember last year when I told you about a new site that I was working on called ShirtDeck that would be a marketplace for secondhand and rare t-shirts. Well, that didn’t pan out, to be honest it was too big of a job for just me to accomplish to a point where I’d actually be happy with it.
I’d been thinking for a while that it would be cool if there was a RetailMeNot that was focused more closely on the indie t-shirt world, so why shouldn’t I be the one to build it? People like t-shirts, people like spending less money on things, and brands like getting exposure, so it seemed like a winner for everyone involved. With that in mind I decided to switch the generic-but-cool-sounding ShirtDeck to being a t-shirt coupon codes website, where people can find and share t-shirt coupon codes and other deals.
I soft-launched the site yesterday over Twitter & Facebook and so far the response has been pretty good. As we’re only a day in obviously the database of coupons is quite small, but it is growing and with the help and support of t-shirt brands the amount of coupons will grow massively over the next few months, creating a fantastic resource for t-shirt buyers.
If you’d like to help out, please submit a t-shirt coupon or deal , the submissions go straight onto the site (no waiting), though you do have to pass one of those pesky reCAPTCHA tests which are a necessary evil. You can also sign up for an account which has a few benefits such as being able to manage your own coupons (editing them and the expiry date, that kind of thing). I would also be very appreciative of any tweets (@ShirtDeck is the twitter account for this project, and unlike @hideyourarms it will be all business), Facebook status updates (here’s the obligatory ShirtDeck Facebook page), blog posts, Stumbles, anything to help get this off the ground and rolling.
