How Humans Connect: Ask me… Tell me…

by Andy on October 30, 2015

With phrases like, “Tell me… what makes you smile. :)” and “Ask me… how I quit smoking,” How Humans Connect is on a mission to figure out how we as a society can have more meaningful interactions during our day. Whether it’s with strangers, acquaintances, friend or family – finding the right words to say can be difficult. So why not broadcast what you want to talk about on a shirt?

If you have a subject you love talking about or a cause you’d like to promote with How Humans Connect, send on your ideas on over to howhumansconnect@gmail.com. I would love to hear them and feature them on the site!

Use the code “hideyourarms” in order to receive 2$ off any shirt. Coupon ends November 1st, 2015.

Andy: I guess I probably should have posted this a few days ago, but you’ve still got a couple of days to make that saving.

New tees and totes at SEIBEI!

by Andy on October 20, 2015



Hi Andy!

After having Seibei on the back burner for a while (my wife and I opened a comic shop and art gallery called Telegraph Art & Comics (telegraphgallery.com), I’m releasing six new tees, some tote bags, and tank tops on a preorder on my site, to ship in the next few weeks.

I feel like I’ve hit a really good stride, and all of the new pieces make me so happy. Maybe they’ll make you happy too. As a special thank you, you can use coupon code HIDEYOURARMS to take an additional 10% off everything at SEIBEI, including preorders and already marked down items.

Andy: If there’s one person from the tee world I’m happy to see get back into the game it’s David Murray, buy something from this man, he’s super.

Seasons come, seasons go. But hey! That doesn’t mean you can’t wear the Altru Apparel summer line of “Chill” shirts expressing a “Good Vibes” attitude. These shirts are “So Rad” and giving a 40% off code for the summer line should help keep the summer spirit alive!

40% off code: (SUMMERLOVING)

Code is good for everything in the “Summer” Collection category until November 1st.

Andy: These guys make some seriously high quality shirts, they sent one in a few years ago and I still have it in regular rotation with now change to the size or colour, highly recommended, especially with that kind of discount.

Dachshund Through The Snow

by Andy on October 20, 2015

This Holiday Tee is available online only and for a limited time! Celebrate doxie love! This is a great gift or a way to treat yourself!

Andy: Available online only and for a limited time…. because it’s on Teespring? Still, bless’em for using crowdfunding as a marketing point. It’s already reached the minimum, so if you want it, feel free to place that order. Oh, and it’s not a tee, come on, this is Hide Your Arms, do you think I wouldn’t notice?

Back to the Future – Dr Who Mashup

by Andy on October 20, 2015


This is my mashup Back To The Future – Dr Who. Great Scott, Delorean is the new Tardis!

Andy: Mashup tees were part of the reason why I stopped posting about shirts as much, they’re usually pointless, lazy and cynical ways to get internet people excited for no good reason. I feel the same way about this shirt, there’s no real need for BttF and Dr Who to be on the same shirt except that they both have time travel themes. Don’t even get me started on the copyright infringement side of things. I’m sure that the designer of this shirt just likes them both and wanted to put them on a shirt, that’s fine, but I don’t see the value in it.

Rightgeous Journey is proud to annouce the release of our initial collection paying homage to our Chicago roots in classic black and white White Sox colors

Andy: These designs mean nothing to me, but I’m not the target market so that’s irrelevant. What I would like to see though is proper product images (no surprise to regular readers there), I also noticed when I loaded the site that it took a while for the products to load, which is due to not using optimised images. It’s a minor point but the quicker a page loads the more likely people are to buy something, so it just makes business sense to think about these small issues.

New Sotare Monster Shirts

by Andy on October 20, 2015



Recently I have released two new shirts with Sotare. I’m really excited and proud with how each shirt has come out!

In September, we dropped a new version of the “Zombie Joey” shirt. That’s right, he’s back… from the dead… and more colorful than ever. Zombie Joey rises up from the grave to feed on the brains of the living. He’s after you! Once you’ve been infected with the virus, there’s no going back.

It’s easy to become a zombie in today’s society. Staring mindlessly at our phones. Disconnected from reality. Going through the motions of a mundane, brain-numbing routine. We need to break free and come back to life.

This time, the design is screen printed using the split-fountain technique creating a vibrant effect of colors fading from blue to pink. Due to the screen printing process each zombie shirt will have a different fade and each one will be unique.

This October we released a brand new monster design. His name is “Akumu”, Japanese for “nightmare”. How can such a cute little monster be a nightmare? Beneath the welcoming exterior lies a shadow monster- strong, dark, and deadly. “Akumu” reminds us that the world is not always as it seems… and looks can be deceiving.

Both shirts are printed on black, soft, sweatshop free, ringspun American Apparel shirts and adorned with Sotare hem tags.

Use the code HYA2015 for 15% off your purchase!

Leaping forward,
Adrian Black

Andy: Thanks a lot for the coupon code!

“May The Force Be With You” t-shirt

by Andy on October 16, 2015



Commemorate the most iconic scene in sci-fi history with this clever cartoon analogy. A must-have for Star Wars fans and tech geeks alike. T-shirts are screen-printed with an eco-friendly discharge process onto 100% cotton, quality lightweight t-shirts, giving a lovely soft hand-feel. White, grey and red print on a black tee.

Andy: I think that this is the first time I’ve ever had a submission from a company that are selling via Amazon, which I probably find more interesting than any of you.

Area Code Tees

by Andy on October 14, 2015


Trying out a concept for area code tee shirts, using simple state outlines on colored tees. Some of them are based on sports team colors, while others are just based on the vibe of a particular place. Credit where credit is due: original inspiration was from a tee I bought back in 2009 made by MikeJames Clothing. Different design but same idea. I wanted to buy a new tee since mine was getting ratty, but they seem to have closed up shop. Thus my idea was born to put these out into the world again…

coupon code HIDEYOURARMS gets you 20% off between now and the end of October, 10/31 at midnight Eastern Standard Time.

Andy: Quite an interesting idea, I’ve seen it done a few times in a similar way. As ever, promo photos would really help with this kind of thing, especially if you could make the shots for each item be related to the area code they represent (even with just a simple background to the image).

OMUNKY add Infant sizes to their lineup

by Andy on October 6, 2015

omunky infant sized cute animal t-shirts
If there was ever a brand that would benefit from infant sizes I think that OMUNKY are it, so I guess the only surprise is how long it’s taken for this to happen, and hopefully it will be successful enough to expand the range beyond the single design you see above. They also have toddler so now you can kit out your child in OMUNKY swag from birth until you kick them out of your house.
