Bill e-mailed me saying he knew he could post this himself, but he wouldn’t be comfortable posting about a shirt he designed and could profit from, clearly Bill doesn’t realise just how important shameless self-promotion is to Hide Your Arms, so I guess that at least one writer still has some integrity!
Shirtmogul are a new-ish startup from India who you can think of a cross between a ‘tee a day’ shirt like TeeFury and a POD like RedBubble. They offer a curated selection of designs that are submitted by designers, so it’s a design competition without the voting, and they keep the tees on sale after the first week for a slightly higher price until the demand for them has died down. All the tees are screen printed which is a good sign for a company like this, but of course without having a shirt in the hands of a HYA blogger it’s impossible to know what the shirts are really like as they are using mockups in the product pictures. If any designers are interested, they’re offering $1 royalty payments on every shirt sold which seems pretty reasonable with the shirts only being $8 in the first week and $10 after that.
Really nice design from Bill based on Fight Club, great concept and I like the way there’s no specific mention to the film, no need to spoon-feed people everything.
