From the monthly archives:

December 2011

A little few reprints and still some $9.50 tees remaining for you to snatch up. I will be a sneaky half reprint half sale blog like I did on Monday.

Firstly a girly fit only tee! Gorgeous Let Go by Lim Heng Swee, features a lovely sky scape and a girl with a kite. It looks very much like a drawing from a children’s book. I personally think it works a lot better on the Lake coloured regular fit than the Teal scoop neck. Teal looks more like sea than sky to me.

I am quite partial to a play on words tee, Boom Box by Alex Solis is a pretty nifty design, this one is only available for guys (and kids). So I am levelling up. This cute little bomb with his gigantic ghetto blaster really makes me smile.

I don’t own a Threadless Yellow tee but this design makes me wish I did! Foxes are super cute animals, wish I could get a tame one, I love Foxy Hip Hop by Alejandro Giraldo Arango, is so unusual, will deffo make you stand out in a crowd.

Lastly from this selection of reprints, one that’s been reprinted several times, probably because it’s super cute and has food with a face. I Was Here by Dina Prasetyawan is clever and adorable and I understand why it’s so desired.

Now for the sale tees! Like last time I am gonna do a guys one, gals one and a kiddies one so I don’t bore y’all too much. For guys, it’s a bummer it is sold out in a size Small but this t-shirt is absolutely breath taking, have to admit I don’t think I know many guys who would wear this but it appeals to me : The General by Tom Buch.

 

Edvard Munch is one of my favourite artists, I quite like this cheeky modern take on one of this most famous paintings ‘The Scream’. The Scr-Emo by Jesse McCormack is hilarious and I can think of plenty of people to buy it for who wouldn’t appreciate it one bit.

My boyfriend has a thing about stars and it’s kind rubbed off onto me! I’d quite like to get Family by Ryan Lin for to kiddies, I’d love to get one for myself too so we all match. I’m a softie like that.

Oh really Threadless another sale? Anyone would think they are having trouble shifting tees, a bit bored of blogging reductions now. However if you have a browse around you can get some lovely tees for a mere $9.50! Spend those Chirstmas pennies wisely Threadless fans. I finally ordered that funky Princess Leia : Logical Conclusion by Matheus Lopes and I’m very excited about it’s arrival.

There are however a few new tees for me to blog which is rather lovely, they have been very few and far between over the festive period. Firstly I really love Pillow Fight Champion by Alex Solis, poor battered and bruised pillow somehow manages to make for a very cute design.

I love the feminine design on Japanese Graffiti by Jasmi Ottelin, not surprisingly it’s only in girly fit but they have regular and V-neck. I’d actually be inclined to give the v-neck of this tee ago. The design is both delicate and quite urban and the subtle colours work perfectly.

Next design looks really whimsical, like an illustration for a child’s book before my time. The brown, greens and blues really add to the vintage feel. A Magical Place by Robson Borges almost has a Disney feel to it.

Lastly form the newbie tees Surface To Air by Niel Quisaba is simply epic, all the best colours of the rainbow which pop against the black tee, this tee just looks like a very beautiful alien abduction. I have a bit of a tee crush.

 

Now finally going to blog my favourite $9.50 tees!  If I was getting one for my boyfriend from the bargain selection it would be ‘Every Night I Have The Same Dream, Issue 2, Vol 1′ by Tony Moore. It’s a tee he’s told me he wants several times and he likes the fact it has detail on the back.

If I was getting on for myself I’d go for My Childhood Fantasy by Ralphy Pykee Lambaco, the design is so perfectly surreal and kooky and feeds my fish fantasies perfectly! This is a tidge more expensive, seems that way with quite a few tees with girl fit vs man fit.

 

If I was getting one for my kids, and I have to admit there isn’t a massive selection I’d go for Polar Gardening by Jean-Sebastien Deheeger simply because it’s adorable and seasonal.

Daily Tees & News for December 23rd

by Andy on December 23, 2011

breakfast t-shirt

Chances are this will be the last daily news post of the year, it may even be my last post of the year, I haven’t decided yet, but I certainly won’t be blogging tomorrow or on Christmas day, I’ll just see if the mood strikes me in the days between Christmas and New Year if any big news comes up. If I don’t post anything else, I hope everyone enjoys the festive season and I’ll see you in 2012.

I like to treat myself to a fried breakfast once a week, just thought you guys would like to know that. Thanks, TeeFury.


RIPT have the power on this He-Man t-shirt.


Shirt.Woot bring us a wintery Ninja t-shirt.

Changes are coming at MySoti

by Andy on December 22, 2011

mysoti news

I told you earlier in the week that Steve was going to be leaving his post as the head man at POD community site MySoti, but somehow I didn’t think that the change was going to come this quickly. The King is dead, long live the Kind, as they say, and new guy Aaron is already in the role of head honcho and sent out his first newsletter recently outlining what he wants to do to help move the site on to the next level:

Hey there everyone.

I’m so pleased to be writing this first blog entry from the MySoti hot seat and help Steve keep the MySoti dream alive. He said you guys are special, and he’s totally right! Just look at the new cool stuff available this week alone.

So I know there are a few things Steve wanted to sort out to give both designers and customers a smoother ride. It isn’t going to happen overnight, but we’re really working hard to accelerate the good work that Steve started. I say “we” because I have some friends helping spread the load. I guess I should give you my manifesto. Here goes:

1. Shipping times will be drastically reduced. This is our top priority, so expect to see those lead times shrinking to e-commerce friendly turnaround times very soon. I’ll make an “official” announcement once we’ve nailed it.

2. Customer service will be more rapid, and you’ll have less reason to need it!

3. More products! I’ve already started the conversations to move this on. I can’t tell you what we’ve got in store for you just yet, but I know you’ll just love it! Stay tuned.

4. More opportunities to make money! It’s all super secret at the moment, but we are in conversations to get your products in front of more people.

Many of you may also have noticed that the calculations on commission payments look as if they have changed recently. This isn’t what’s happening. Our technical drones have been working on fixing some problems that have been discovered during the hand over. None of you will lose any money, and your commission payments will be the same as before. I promise.

Both Steve and I really appreciate you guys and gals hanging in there and supporting us. You’ll soon see that your loyalty is well placed!

Happy Holidays everyone

I hope it all works out for them, they’ve had some rotten luck in the past.

zombie enforcement agency t-shirt

Things really are getting quiet in the tee world as people get ready for Christmas and the last order dates are passed for most brands, hopefully we’ll all be able to relax soon.

But, but, where’s the reference in this TeeFury design?!


How weird that there would be a 1% milk shirt at Snorg this week, and then Shirt.Woot have something similar.


RIPT must be fans of The Walking Dead too.

wayne enterprises batman t-shirt

There’s been a lot of hubbub about the new Batman movie Dark Knight Rises over the past couple of days since the new trailer has been released for the film, which gave me ample opportunity to mention this t-shirt over at MySoti which has been languishing in my bookmarks for far too long. Lovely style to this design.

Costiness=$23.40 Buy it at MySoti

glennz ninja t-shirt

I think that this is one of Glennz stronger releases for the past couple of months, I really like it. You can pick it up for $19.95.

3 new t-shirts at SnorgTees this week

by Andy on December 22, 2011

pigs in space t-shirt



Pretty solid work from Snorg this week, I really like the milk box character they’ve created for the 1% shirt. All shirt $14.95 this week only, $19.95 after that.

free your mind



I like the style of the graphic on this sweater & hoodie from Dawn Clothing (a Belgian brand), there’s a kind of graphic novel feel to it that lends itself to the design. Here’s some info about the item from Dawn themselves:

- The hoodie/sweater itself is made of 100% organic fair trade cotton, so it’s good for both man and earth.
– it is printed with environmental friendly water-based inks.
– I really focused on getting the best blanks I could this time, ensuring that they would be super soft,
warm and fit nicely. And at the same time not only carry a message of change with the brand
and it’s designs, but actually have an impact myself by using organic and fair trade products.
– The design is about having a close-minded or limited view on the world/life. I thought that a person
wearing blinkers would be a cool metaphor for this message. If you look a bit closer you will
see that this character is holding a pair of scissors, trying to cut the blinkers and freeing himself
from his own narrow mind.

Costiness=60€ Buy it at Dawn Clothing: Sweater / Hoodie

Ten item Winter Line from Fancy Robot

by Andy on December 21, 2011

Post image for Ten item Winter Line from Fancy Robot Solid release from Fancy Robot, quite a lot of it has their name and/or logo on it so you’ll probably need to be a fan of the brand to pick up quite a lot of it, but they have a nice logo so there’s nothing wrong with that. You’ll notice an ‘inside out’ design in the gallery, I like the idea behind them, it’s surprising that more brands don’t experiment with it for designs.

Two new tees from Hello Fresco

by Andy on December 21, 2011

yo yo t-shirt


Good to see Hello Fresco releasing some new stuff after they made quite an impression in the tee world with their launch over the last couple of months. Of the two new designs I’d say that Yo Yo is my favourite.

Daily tees & News for December 21st

star wars firefly t-shirt

Star Wars meets Firefly in this design at TeeFury.


Trust Qwertee to bring out a shirt that is so British.


Shirt Punch put Darth Vader on a playing card and hot damn it looks good.


RIPT have a Star Wars x Wizard of Oz mashup.


Tuxedo Tees do have a bit of retro charm to them, and with this 8-bit version Shirt.Woot have given it an entirely different kind of retro charm.


Nowhere Bad have a fairly generic looking Mario shirt.


DBH really like lions, don’t they?


Loviu have laid a golden egg.


24tee have a slightly depressing meme shirt.


Tilteed give their ‘Joy Ride’ design another release.


RedBubble are offering 20% off all gift certificates for people that may have left it a little late with their Christmas gifts. Use the coupon code WEAREMAD20 to receive the discount.


PalmerCash still have 50% off their gift cards with the coupon code GIFTCARD, but their cut off point for delivering physical things is “12pm Eastern” today. I’m going to take that to mean midday, not midnight.


Threadbird think that now is a great time for store owners to restock their inventory for the New Year, and are offering 35c off per garment. Not a massive amount, but I’m sure no one would say know to a $35 saving on 100 tees.

chicken t-shirt

I really like the idea of taking the traditional crossbones and replacing them with a couple of chicken legs drawn in this simple and fun style. The lack of complication certainly helps lend it to the one-colour print and makes me think that they could use the design on a variety of products like stickers or snapbacks, pretty much anything really. Oh, and it being printed onto a triblend certainly isn’t doing any harm either.

Costiness=$28 Buy it at Chickenfarm

Post image for “Godzilla vs. King Kong” bamboo t-shirt from Part-Time Superheroes

I’m a bit of a sucker for these shirts that create an imaginary boxing match poster, and this is no exception, and the fact that this one is printed onto a bamboo t-shirt makes me like it more. If only we could see the real tee rather than just a mockup.

Costiness=£28 Buy it at Part-Time Superheroes

firefly t-shirts


Jeff over at Firefly got in touch recently to let me know about his brand, Firefly, and when I checked them out I was impressed. The designs aren’t complicated art, they’re simple, often symbol based, and with really nice, vibrant colourways. I’m sure a few of you are disappointed that this brand has nothing to do with a certain TV programme, but Jeff is trying to be a little more inspirational than that with designs that intend to spark your creative fire, though funnily enough I find myself being drawn to their logo shirts more than the ‘creative’ ones.

The American Apparel shirts are usually a reasonable $15 a piece, but since HYA readers are special (or perhaps Jeff just thinks we’re poor?) you can get 30% off your order with the coupon code ARMS. I don’t know if there’s an expiry date on that coupon, but I’d suggest using it sooner rather than later if you like something in the store. If you’d like to know more about each design I’ve included the blurb after the ‘more’.

zombie school t-shirt



Even though the text on this shirt is in Spanish I think that it looks cool enough to transcend language barriers.

Daily Tees & News for December 20th

by Andy on December 20, 2011

night of the living dead t-shirt

This TeeFury shirt has everything, horror, a movie parody, 80s games, 8-bit, and lots of criticism in their comments about the head looking pasted on!


Not often you see an orange shirt, usually it only happens when Tilteed pull this design out of the closet.


This Shirt.Woot design is simple but I like it. I’ve never ordered anything from Shirt.Woot, what are their delivery times like? Any chance you’ll be able to wear this before Egg Nog season is over?

11th hour t-shirt



We first heard from Mayamada back in August and they’ve been awfully busy since then, most notably exhibiting at the MCM Expo in London back in October, holding an anime screening in November. They continue doing this “one notable thing per month” run by releasing a shirt called “11th hour” which features artwork based on “another of our fantasy shows about 4 strangers brought together as they try to uncover the mystery behind a timepiece that each character owns.”

Costiness=£20 Buy it at Mayamada [Mens/Womens]
