We first took a look at Trucker Deluxe on Wednesday night and they have been kind enough to offer HYA readers 20% off everything in their store (except for sale items, which is understandable). I’ve included a few pictures above to show the kind of stuff they have in the store but it’s quite hard to impress upon you just how wide the range of brands that they stock is, name just about any streetwear company and they’ll stock something by them. Definitely worth checking out, especially since we’ve got such a good discount from them.

The coupon code is HYA20 and I don’t think that it has an expiry date, but I can’t guarantee that so if you see something you like, pick it up!

Weird Karl Pilkington all over print t-shirt!

by Ash Jones on March 16, 2013

This is probably one of the weirdest concepts for a t-shirt design I have seen, However the site claims that they are selling fast.  So If you should happen to be a slightly obsessive Karl Pilkington fan you can get yours at the appropriately named ‘Fashion Victim’ for £22 http://www.fashionvictim.bigcartel.com …

Original tee designs in larger sizes

by Ash Jones on March 15, 2013

I decided to write this post following a question on my twitter (@ashjadejones) asking if I knew of any decent tees in sizes 3XL and larger.   Almost straight away some one replied saying they had the same problem with finding decent tees in bigger sizes, so I thought it might be worth looking into and sharing on Hide Your Arms.

There are a lot of sites selling the standard offensive/comedy slogan printed tees in larger sizes, but as I find them boring and uninspiring I have tried to find a selection of some of the best (in my opinion) that are available in sizes XXXL and larger.

Johnny Cupcakes

http://shop.johnnycupcakes.com/

I really like the designs on Johnny cupcakes, the shipping Is quite a lot if you’re outside of the US ($15 to UK) – but they do have a UK store in London if you are able to visit in person.  They go up to sizes 3XL. This tee is priced at $40.

Truffle Shuffle

http://www.truffleshuffle.co.uk/store/

Truffle shuffle have some pretty good designs, with tees going up to 5XL, one of my favourites is ‘Chewbacca drumming’ which is £24.99

Truffleshufflechewbacca Original tee designs in larger sizes

 

La Fraise

http://en.lafraise.com

La Fraise have been featured on HYA before, and have loads of designs in 3XL sizes and shipping is very reasonable too (€3).

lafraise Original tee designs in larger sizes

 

Team Hell

http://teamhelluk.com

Team hell have a few tattoo themed tees that come in sizes up to 3XL. (£15)

teamhell Original tee designs in larger sizes

 

Got Ink apparel

http://www.gotinkapparel.com/

I must admit I was reluctant about including ‘Got Ink’ as I don’t like recommending a company if I have personally had a negative experience, (sent them a few emails a while back and never got a response, which makes me question their customer service.)

However, they have got some pretty awesome t-shirts!  They go up to sizes 3XL and are reasonably priced, this ‘Octo-sailor’ tee is priced at £22.99.

For information about exhibiting at or visiting Margin, get in touch via the website.

Branded Baron Release 2 New Tees

by AndyRocksBluu on October 24, 2012

Brandedbaron Branded Baron Release 2 New Tees
Joe at Branded Baron dropped two new stunningly fresh graphic tees for the fall season. The first t-shirt on the left is entitled “Hawk” and the other t-shirt is called “Gamer 2.0″. In my personal opinion I think both concepts are really well done but the “Hawk” t-shirt happens to be my favorite of the two. Each T-shirt is selling at 24.99 at brandedbaron.com.

Post image for Exclusive coupon code for 10% off at WeLoveFine.com

WeLoveFine.com, the brand with more pop culture t-shirts than you could shake a very large stick at, have been kind enough to offer HYA readers 10% off everything in store (not just the Avengers tees I’ve posted above). Use the coupon code HYATEES at the checkout to receive the discount.

One of my favourite things about WLF is that they seem to do some much more with the licenses they have (yep, all their tees are legit) than most other places, their artwork appeals to fans of the TV show or movie, rather than just slapping the logo on a shirt and being done with it.

Ride With Pride

by Liam_Hodgeon on July 12, 2012

RWP 03 Ride With Pride

It’s not a clothing company bringing the goods this time, but instead, small Bristol based design studio, Fiasco Design. In celebration of their love of bikes the guys there have created this super simple (yet super awesome) limited edition tee.

With only 50 available and with them costing only 10 of your English pounds, if bikes (or very nice tees) are your thing then i’d be snapping this up!

Post image for The Dark Knight Rises contest winners at Design By Hümans

Design By Hümans recently held a contest to design a shirt themed around the new Batman movie: The Dark Knight Rises. I was kind of upset when I first heard about this, cause one of the things that really attracts me to DBH is their complete lack of pop culture designs. But when they announced the 3rd place winner today, I was pleasantly surprised. “Arise” by SilentOp incorporates the Batman theme in an awesome way. I may even have to buy this one! Congrats to SilentOp on his third place win in the contest and coincidentally his third print at Design By Hümans. The Top three winners (first and second will be announced on Thursday and Friday) were chosen by Christopher Nolan – Director/Writer/Producer for The Dark Knight Rises and Emma Thomas – Producer.

Sleepy Dan : Vinyl Thoughts Event Shirt Printing

by Sleepy Dan on March 19, 2012

An inspiring night requires an inspiring shirt design… The theme of this year’s Vinyl Thoughts event was Next Level. A retro video game tribute, so I had to create a shirt using one of my favorite games growing up, the classic Donkey Kong! With the help of Alexa Machine this shirt printing went perfect.
6849174102 2b546172fd Sleepy Dan : Vinyl Thoughts Event Shirt Printing
To line up a four color print on the press, you gotta tape one of the films to the pallet in the same spot you want all the prints. So you can line up all the screens in the press to that film, this is the basic registration of the print.
6849173898 7cdc509f5d Sleepy Dan : Vinyl Thoughts Event Shirt Printing
You will be able to see the film thru the negative space of the emulsified screen, and just gotta line them up perfectly and tighten the screws on the press…
6995296643 62c0964bf8 Sleepy Dan : Vinyl Thoughts Event Shirt Printing
Once all four screens are taped off on the back and loaded with the correct ink color, the printing begins!
6995296841 a8ed78ccfd Sleepy Dan : Vinyl Thoughts Event Shirt Printing
This four station, six color manual press is perfect for two people to print at once. Just gotta print the colors in the correct order and communicate so no mistakes are made. Check out the final color printing
6849175168 298990e10f Sleepy Dan : Vinyl Thoughts Event Shirt Printing
Then you get perfect prints like this! I wanted to design something with huge letters, so the levels of the Donkey Kong board were a perfect large surface area.
6995296393 4c2ba97078 Sleepy Dan : Vinyl Thoughts Event Shirt Printing
Hot off the press, I picked up the shirts and rushed over to the event where all the shirts sold out that night! I am reprinting some more shirts now, so they will be available on my Sleepy Dan web shop this week.
6995297025 3dce294794 Sleepy Dan : Vinyl Thoughts Event Shirt Printing
The two color back design showed off all the sponsors for this year’s event. The show was packed all night and has become such a hit for the up and coming Dallas vinyl arts culture.
6995297279 15e5bf7bea Sleepy Dan : Vinyl Thoughts Event Shirt Printing
I’m so proud to be part of this event and becoming a contributing vinyl designer. If you check out pics of the event and custom vinyls, I created a tribute to Mike Tyson’s Punch Out by creating two vinyl characters Bald Bull and King Hippo!

adam hendle

I’m sure that the vast majority of HYA readers will be well aware of Adam, he runs popular indie clothing blog IAMTHETREND and has recently assumed the exciting-sounding position of Special Ops at Storenvy. Surely his greatest position to date though will be coming up over the coming weeks as he becomes a guest blogger on HYA, talking about goings on behind the scenes at Storenvy explaining what life is like at the rapidly moving startup.

I asked Adam a few questions about three things we both enjoy, tees, taking on more tasks than we can handle, and life.

Congratulations on the new job, can you fill in my readers on what your role is at Storenvy?
Thanks a ton Andy! My official title at Storenvy is Storenvy Special Ops, which probably sounds a little more like I will be in charge of kicking doors own and fighting bad guys, but honestly I wear a ton of different hats for Storenvy so putting one job title on it didn’t really work. As of right now I am in charge of our social media platforms, answering customer support, reaching out to our individual stores for feedback/insight, recruiting new stores to join the site, helping manage and grow the Storenvy community, writing for the blog and whatever else we can throw on my plate!

IAMTHETREND IATT Your Guide For All Things Indie 1323190006302 480x396 Interview with Adam Hendle of IAMTHETREND and Storenvy
Does this mean we’ll be seeing less content on IATT?
Unfortunately yes. Working for a startup is basically the equivalent of working two or three jobs, so my time has been pretty limited outside of work. That being said IAMTHETREND is my baby which I have raised for over three years now and you won’t see it dying anytime soon. I have had some more guest bloggers pitch in to the site which has been fantastic and I have just had to be a lot more selective with the posts that I make as well as scheduling posts out throughout the week instead of just unleashing them as I write them.

Storenvy seems to be getting a lot of attention at the moment, and clearly they’re growing, what do you think sets it apart from other hosted store platforms that explains the growing popularity?
Storenvy has a ton of momentum right now and for good reason. Everyone who uses it, loves it. I’ve been on the phone with dozens of Storenvy users and every single one of them loves how easy is to use the site. And another thing that sets it apart is that it’s the only hosted store platform that also has a marketplace. Marketplaces are huge. It means that you have built-in traffic and shoppers have one destination where they can discover stuff from all the shores in one place. And I can already tell you that the marketplace is what makes the Storenvy community. Our merchants really get a sense that they’re not on their own and can connect with other users. I think the emphasis on community has been a real driving factor of Storenvy’s growth.

I’ve noticed a few articles on the Storenvy blog giving advice to store owners about product photography, can we expect more of this kind of ‘how to’ content?
Of course since I am an avid blogger I wanted to jump right in and start posting lists and resource articles and store interviews trying to gain momentum again for the blog. I really want to turn the blog from an afterthought to a place that people check daily for resources and insight.

Social Shopping Marketplace Free Online Stores · Storenvy 1323190077590 480x349 Interview with Adam Hendle of IAMTHETREND and Storenvy
Personally, I’ve never really used the ‘social marketplace’ aspect of Storenvy, am I in the minority and what am I missing out on? And will your role involve growing that side of the site?
Storenvy was really designed for 2 purposes — (1.) hosted, customizable online stores (2.) and a big marketplace made up of all the stuff from the stores. It’s totally cool to just head into your favorite stores and check out their stuff without going through the marketplace. Loads of other shoppers come through the marketplace. Each person is different in what their looking for. Some know exactly where to go for what they want and others want to browse a bigger selection. We just don’t think merchants should have to choose between having their own store and being in a marketplace which is why we put the two together.

The Marketplace is honestly a great place to find out about brands and products that you may never have stumbled on before. I highly recommend checking out and browsing the Markets page as you never know what you are going to find around the corner!

How can Storenvy survive without moving to a paid-for or freemium model?
On ramen noodles, tears and hardwork! Ha! But honestly at this moment we have two freemium features on the site, most recently of which we just launched called “Super Discounts”. That extra allows store owners to offer four types of discounts including $-off, %-off, free shipping and ‘buy n get m free’, which is perfect for offering great holiday deals to customers. On Black Friday we saw over 40% of the transactions going through Storenvy including some type of discount with shoppers spending an average of 15% more when they had a discount vs when they did not. Other than that we have a custom url option and also have some other freemium features in mind for the future.

Luckily, we’ve been fortunate enough to pair up with some investors that understand our vision and who have put some substantial financial backing into the business. These are the same guys who have funded other web startups like Twitter, Groupon, Tumblr, and even Google.

A couple of years ago Big Cartel was the de facto choice of platform for creating a quick store, is your job to make Storenvy the first thing that people think of when they want to make a store?
Absolutely! We still feel that there is no one clear choice in people’s minds when it comes to choosing an online storefront. There are some nice platforms out there but everyone is pretty well spread out with no real clear cut winner. Sure sites like Etsy and BigCartel, Shopify have a nice following but there still hasn’t been that household name that has emerged.

I WILL PONG YOU TEE 20BIG original 480x480 Interview with Adam Hendle of IAMTHETREND and Storenvy
How is Pongdeck going?
Ahhhh Pong Deck, what could have been… Lol. Honestly if you were to say a project was to be taking a backseat I would have to say that Pong Deck is riding in the trailer right now. We had some early success with it getting it into Spencer’s gifts for a trial run as well as sponsoring last years World Series of Beer Pong, but unfortunately myself and my partner were not able to truly devote the time that it takes to get a first of it’s kind product off the ground. That being said we haven’t pulled the plug on it, it’s just on cruise control. Speaking of which if you like beer pong or know someone that does we just put them on sale for $5.99 with tees at $13.99 on iwillpongyou.storenvy.com! (shameless self plug).

312639 2423697071315 1218143683 33121161 4904761 n 480x497 Interview with Adam Hendle of IAMTHETREND and Storenvy
How’s married life treating you?
I always say to people that ask me how life has been since getting married that it is the same! Which I think is beautiful thing. Really nothing has changed in our lives except we now wear wedding rings and can call each other dorky names like “wifey” and “hubby”. I am truly blessed to have such a supportive and amazing women by my side!

Do you hate getting e-mails that start “Dear Journalist” as much as I do? And do you have any pet peeves when brands send you pitches?
Haha absolutely! Don’t ever send me an email saying “Dear Journalist”. As far as pet peeves go, I really do not have too many. I prefer a short and personal email. Please do not send me a zip file including forty images that is going to take me an hour to open, I am sure they look great but I usually can tell in one or two pictures if I am going to write about the line.

How many tees do you have in your closet?
Great question! Honestly I have no idea, but I can tell you that I have a closet, a few drawers and even some totes full of tees and I still buy tees! I think I have a problem… If I had to absolutely take a guess I’d say 246 and a half. icon smile Interview with Adam Hendle of IAMTHETREND and Storenvy

I notice that you don’t post about daily sites such as TeeFury, why is this? Wary of the here today, gone tomorrow nature of some of the newer sites?
I just have really never been a fan of the tees that are usually on those sites. I would rather post about a brand that is trying to build something over just one t-shirt that is up for 24 hours.

Are you good at switching off from the Internet and unwinding? I feel like I’m constantly tethered to my emails.
I am the absolute worst at this, my iPhone is always in my hand and I am constantly checking emails. I have a very hard time turning it off and just unwinding, I get this overwhelming feeling of guilt like I should be doing some more productive with my time, especially on nights when my wife isn’t home as she bartends three nights a week. I feel like if she is out of the house I need to be working on something.

For any new projects in the pipeline or are you busy enough?
I always have ideas, it’s just the time that is the issue!

Thanks a lot to Adam for answering my not-particularly-exciting questions, but I found that really interesting. There aren’t many people out there that write about t-shirts as much as I do, so to get an insight from a fellow tee blogger is fascinating to me. it also sounds like Adam is in charge of quite a lot at Storenvy, which bodes well for some great posts when he guest blogs here at HYA.

Coupon code for $5 off at SquidFire this week!

by Andy on November 15, 2010

squidfire coupon code

I’ve written about SquidFire in the past, but didn’t quite realise just how large their operation was. They’ve recently celebrated their 6th year of operation, starting out selling shirts from the trunk of their cadillac to being sold in 130 stores worldwide, I wonder if they should be holidng lectures for aspiring entrepreneurs just like Johnny Cupcakes?

So, clearly they’re popular, and hopefully they’ll be more popular with HYA folk this week, because we’ve been given a coupon code that will give you $5 off each adult t-shirt or hoodie that you order, so with tees generally being priced at $25 a piece, you’re looking at a decent saving of 20% on some really good designs. Use the coupon code HYA5OFF to receive the magical saving, and the code will expire in a week, November 22nd.
