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.
James from Mind Garden is excited to introduce his first collection, featuring the ‘Debbie Harry’ t-shirt by Erika Simmons. Erika creates portraits using magnetic cassette tape which James thought was cool. All four designs are available to pre-purchase through Kickstarter. Each T-shirt is screen printed by Monster Press on loose neck 145 gsm 100% ring spun combed cotton, specially selected for its comfort and fit. Designs are limited to runs of 20 – once they’re gone, they’re gone.
Pledge now then drop James an email after doing so, quote ‘hideyourarms‘ in the subject field and he’ll arrange for an additional free t-shirt from the collection to be sent out to you. Don’t forget to reference your Kickstarter username in the email.
Back online the Fiasco Boy “Watch the Throne” Tee is back available at Fiascoworldwide.com. Available in the “Bred” and “Concord” colorway. Shipping worldwide and available in all sizes. This tee will only be available for a limited time.
Andy: Not exactly my kind of thing but I certainly can’t fault it, and decent promo pics too.
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 codeHIDEYOURARMS 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).
For those of us that don’t want figure out a costume for Halloween this year, but instead would prefer the simplicity of a t-shirt. Kurt Marks of Crypticus Apparel who recently joined Babbletees has produced some really fun designs that should help you avoid being shamed for not wearing a costume at parties this year.

Andy: Really impressive release from Matt, he always goes to the next level when it comes to Halloween and that foil print looks especially gorgeous. As a little bonus here’s a timelapse (with appropriately heavy music) of the illustration process that leaves me feeling talentless.
Catsmeow® just released a Monochrome 2015 collection, all article almost only in black and white shirts and designs, playing with funny pocket shirts, long sleeve shirts, detail silk screen printed etc. We ship worldwide, flat rate shipping $6 for all place, check them out after the jump!?
Andy: Cats on the internet? This clearly won’t do well, no one on the interest has any interest in cats.
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.

Andy: These are cool, really likeable and wearable style. I wouldn’t mind seeing some non-white tees but that’s just my personal style.
We at Psychological Industries strive to make the public more aware of social struggles and citizens rights by any memes necessary. In the case of the RESPECT campaign we have adapted the iconography of a long dead freedom fighter for our age and in response to the War on Women here in America. We also hope the imagery is picked up by international women’s struggles and spread far and wide.
Join the 1COR team and represent more than a brand but a movement. Our designs reflect a LA 90s Urban style with handmade details that will set you apart. I created this t-shirt/jersey line to stand for faith, family, and football. All of our products are high quality shirts with handmade details that you can customize for added uniqueness. We also seek to grow our brand in the community through charitable acts, giving, and partnerships.
Andy: Not really my style, but I do like it and I can see people far cooler than me wearing it!
So as the cold is starting to kick in, here at HNH we have your back.
What about a nice vessel to hold your warm drink, I hear you ask?
Yes we have that, and yes it clearly has our dark sense of humour to go with it. People of the world I give you ‘Drink Coffee Worship Satan’. It’s also worth remembering that it is just a cup, as much as I’d love it to summon demons, I can’t guarantee that will happen for you. Oh, on a second note it’s also worth remembering you can also use the mug for Tea (multiple flavours/varieties), Hot Chocolate, Soup and maybe even Horlicks?
As it’s HNH the mug is priced at £6.66, with free UK shipping.
If you are going to grab one, you can bundle with any of our tees and the tee will be just £12. Go save yourself some money, add the mug and any tee to your basket, then just use the code ‘cain‘ at the checkout.
Andy: I’m not sure if we’ve ever had a mug on the site before, I’m sure it would make me smile every morning if I had this on my desk in the office.
DesignUntapped is a brand new t-shirt and apparel label. We’ve recently launched with our Icons range of tees, which are inspired by inspirational musicians, we aim to produce striking and colourful tshirt designs. Initially the designs were just for our designer, Andy, who would make the tees to wear about town, people would ask “Where did you get that from?” and want to buy for friends, this gave Andy the kick up the backside to start DesignUntapped and be able to offer the t-shirts to the public.
Our first batch of tees are: The Great Entertainer Tee, Starman Tee, The King Tee and Jealous Guy Tee.
We are based in Perth Australia and while we are small we are operating a drop shipment business.
This is our first venture in the t shirt worlds and we are slowly building followers and customers. It’s a daunting yet exiting task building a new brand, and for this reason Andy has added a blog to the website to offer some insider information to the world of DesignUntapped. Feel free to drop by to the site and take a look, we hope you like it, if you don’t, that’s cool too.
Andy: As ever, I would like to see real photos of the tees as I think these could be quite cool. I do wonder if the prints could do with being a bit bigger on the shirt. Love the typically Aussie attitude that it’s cool if people don’t like it!
