Nook & Cranny Independent T-shirt Pop Up

by Andy on December 16, 2014

This week Nook & Cranny is being taken over by a collection of independent designers for its week-long T-Shirt Pop Up Shop. Filling the rails, hanging from the rafters and lining the walls of the shop’s brand new event space will be a display of t-shirts, sweatshirts, prints and tote bags from seven top #shopindie brands.

The Bear Hug Co wish you a ‘Murray Christmas’ with their line of popular products. Walter White, Johnny Cash, Forrest Gump and Bill Murray are amongst the icons that have all been given a great big warm Bear Hug and transformed into illustrative apparel and print designs for your browsing pleasure.

Lost Shapes wish you ‘Another Nice Day’ with their collection of simple-but-effective graphic and typography designs. Available in both men and women’s sizes, these guys have got your present buying list covered. Limited edition No Guts No Glory designs are also on offer so catch ‘em while you can! Guts by name and guts by nature, this upcoming start up prove that perseverance is the key to independent success.

Monster Threads keep things sweet with a range of colourful t-shirts and hooded sweatshirts while Peter Carrington and Point both display their darker approaches to the world of illustration and garment printing. With such different approaches to design, there’s a little something for everyone on your nice list this year.

The T-Shirt Pop-Up Shop will be at Nook & Cranny (28 Bold Street, Liverpool) until Sunday 21st December. Opening times are 9am-6pm but you can take advantage of late night hours on Thursday and Saturday (’til 8pm) to get your hands on some pretty awesome Christmas clobber.

Andy: Looks like a great event, pity I can’t find an excuse to go to Liverpool this week.

This giveawat from is huge, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a t-shirt blog do a giveaway this big.

There’s gift cards from 15 t-shirt companies, which would be enough for most people, but they just had to go and take it to the next level by putting a PS4 into the prize pot too!

Entry is very easy, they say you can enter in seconds and they aren’t kidding. All you need to do is visit this special Christmas page at their site, enter your full name and your e-mail address and you’re in with a chance to win a prize and get yourself some free clothing.

The competition is open until Christmas Day but it is so easy to enter you might as well do it now instead of leaving it and then forgetting later.


Hey Everybody!

From now until January 1st I am having a Winter Sale on all items in my store to celebrate the holidays. Unique and affordable hand carved woodcut prints, shirts, sweatshirts cards, and more all available at All work is created, carved and printed in Beacon, NY.

Handmade Designer T-shirts by VictorM at DBH

by Andy on December 15, 2014

My latest handmade airbrushed T-shirts available at my DBH Store

Andy: The original title of this post was just “Handmade Designer T-shirts”, which is an odd choice when you consider that these are POD shirts from Design By Humans.

Andy: I’m sure it will come as no surprise that these designs aren’t to my personal taste but I can imagine them appealing to others. I think that getting someone to wear the items would make them more attractive in the product shots rather than the images we’re presented with here, I wouldn’t want someone to miss out on buying an item they’d like because it wasn’t presented to show it off at it’s best.

I’d like to share our blog about screen printing Tees with metallic inks. It be nice to see what others think.


Andy: I’ve had good and bad metallic tees in my time. I do love the HYA gold print tees even if no one ever buys them, which probably is partially because people do expect metallic designs to fail a lot sooner than a traditional screenprint.
