Springleap do print-on-demand now

Post image for Springleap do print-on-demand now

It’s amazing that in just the past 10 years or so that print-on-demand technology has come so far that it is no a viable option for brands wanted to produce high quality t-shirts and print onto just about any colour of t-shirt too (it used to be that printing onto a dark t-shirt was practically impossible). South African design competition Springleap have decided to make the switch over to POD from traditional screenprinting, and in the process that means that they will be able to offer almost all of their back catalogue at any one time (they can print them when they’re ordered so there’s no need to keep stock on hand of older design which aren’t as popular). Initially they’re offering a limited range of designs in POD format and just printed on black, white, and melange (whatever colour that is), but I can only assume that this range will expand over time. You can also get 10% off anything in store at the moment with the coupon code demand2010 for an unknown amount of time.

I get the impression that this means they will stop selling screenprinted shirts soon, which is a bit of a pity since it’s still very hard to match that quality level, but as I say, POD has come on leaps and bounds so hopefully there won’t be much of a difference.


Springleap Coupon Code

springleap coupon code

The coupon code cupid101 will get you R80 off your order at Springleap. You might be asking yourself, what the hell is R80 when it’s at home, well, tees are Springleap cost R183, which is about $24, so using math we can work out that R80 is a saving of about $10.50, good work, math!

Oh, and you’d probably be thinking that the code is only valid until Valentines Day since we all know Cupid goes to hibernate in his velvet fortress on February 15th, but it’ll actually keep on saving until the end of March.


burundi 57 t-shirt by stolen goodies

I don’t really know much about Stolen Good(ie)s, but they’ve got a lot of cool tees, quite a lot of which run along a theme of “African country + a number + a cool graphic.” The sad part is that those numbers and graphics relate to depressing statistics, for example, the ’57’ in this design relates to “57% of children under the age of five suffering from moderate to severe stunted growth.”

Costiness=$25 Buy it at Stolen Good(ie)s


Hide Your Arms hits new heights!

Hide Your Arms on Toubkal Mountain

No, this isn’t a post about record breaking traffic numbers (though things are looking mighty healthy according to the stats software), this post is about my brother wearing a Hide Your Arms tee (in the previously unseen kelly green colourway) on top of Toubkal, a 4,167m (13,671 ft) tall mountain in Morocco. As you can tell by what other people were wearing on the summit, it was chilly, so I’m glad he braved the cold to show off the tee.

The t-shirt shown now belongs to a Berber guide that led the trek, so I can now say that Hide Your Arms has reached Africa, not many continents to go now, maybe with the clearance sale I’ve got going on at the moment I can tick a couple more off the list!

Afrocode II by Bernos

by Andy on November 5, 2009



They say in the product description that this tee is controversial, but I genuinely can’t think of any way that people could be offended by it, would anyone care to enlighten me?

Costiness=$22.95 Available from Bernos

Who wants to help responsible, sustainable, socioeconomic growth in Africa? You do of course, and now you can do it on the cheap. There’s no graphics to speak of, just high quality blank tees at half price (running between €11 and €14 depending on style).



Bernos’ Fall Lineup

by Andy on November 21, 2008

I don’t know what it is about Bernos, but their designs leave me feeling really ‘refreshed’. You’re probably thinking “Andy, what the hell are you talking about?” But luckily, I don’t need to explain myself because I’ve already said I don’t know what it is.

Also, I love the idea that absolutely anyone can wear a tee that says “Made in Africa.” Check out the gallery for an argyle tee in a rasta colourway that I think is pretty cool.
