Post image for Excellent advice on how to get your t-shirt line funded on Kickstarter

There’s a really interesting post over at IATT about how to approach trying to raise funds for your t-shirt brand using crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter and indiegogo. If you’ve been considering that as an avenue for your potential brand then give it a look, it’s not too long but certainly gets you thinking.

Post image for IATT list 31 terrifying Halloween T-shirts

It might be getting a little late to order a t-shirt specifically for Halloween, but that doesn’t make this list of “31 Hauntingly Awesome Halloween T-Shirts” any less readable, well, maybe a little bit, but just a little.

T-shirt news for March 14th

by Andy on March 14, 2012

sherlock holmes t-shirt

Fair to say that this Sherlock t-shirt at TeeFury is going to do quite well, they’ve already given it the pancakes symbol.


I can relate to that, right guys? Shirt.Woot.


I think that this might be one of my favourite parody t-shirts for a long time, good work RIPT.


Firefly continues to be popular with tee fans at Qwertee.


Very nice Star Wars t-shirt at Shirt Punch.


Nirvana’s Nevermind meets Friday the 13th in this shirt at Nowhere Bad.


This isn’t a split colour shirt of Pokemon characters at The Yetee, it’s a design available in red or blue, and every order comes with a ‘Yeteemon’ sticker.


OtherTees have a shirt of Lost quotes. I watched the first episode of Alcatraz last night, I liked it, and I liked the way the soundtrack was very similar to Lost.


Hey man, I think you’ve got something in your beard. Stupidhurts.us.


I haven’t seen the film “Blood in blood out – bound by honor” so I have no idea what this shirt at 24tee is about.


This latest shirt from DBH is fairly high on the badass scale.


Another oldie-but-goodie at Tilteed.


Made in the Now cover the story of bloodhounds being used in the Congo to help fight elephant poaching.


Monsieur Steve is offering 15€ off your order when you spend 75€ or more with the coupon code LOVE.


GhostWar Clothing are having a March Madness sale until March 16th with all tees $15 and tank tops/v-necks $20. [via IATT]


SS12 Obey has dropped at Urban Industry.


Girl wears t-shirt saying ‘all the cool girls are lesbians’ on it to school (which ,ay or may not be the astoundingly uncool shirt above), school thinks it might be a little inflammatory and asks her to cover it up, predictable storm of media attention follows.


Tee and Toast might think about cats a bit too much.


These vintage style camera necklaces are available in the Rigu store now.


Glamour Kills logo shirts are now available in a wider range of colours.


25% – 50% off select St. Patrick’s Day Merchandise. Go green with hoodies, tees, accessories and more! Offer ends March 17th.


Who would have thought that Walmart would have stocked this “trek yourself before you wreck yourself” t-shirt?
I’ve received word that this design is a rip of a Tshirt Bordello shirt that has been around for 18+ months.


New Rebel8 has hit Street Casuals.


Here’s a cute dog wearing a polo shirt.

Daily Tee & News Roundup for November 23rd

by Andy on November 23, 2011

star trek t-shirt

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s amazing that there aren’t more Star Trek t-shirts around. $10 today at TeeFury.


I like the name of this shirt, ‘Vinyl Frontier,’ almost as much as I like the design. $10 today at Tilteed.


Very nice Doctor Who t-shirt from Nowhere Bad today.


I’m not sure if this shirt at Stupidhurts.us is a Deadmau5 reference or not, but I like it.


Not my favourite Shirt.Woot design ever but it definitely fits with their style.


I’m fairly sure there are a lot of people that would like this RIPT version of Battlestar Battleship to be a real thing.


Awesome shirt at The Yetee today, who would have thought that “Star Wars x crappy Christmas sweaters” would be such a good concept for a design?


And here I was thinking that all the “people whose names are also a state” had been done, well done 24tee.


TeeRaiders are dropping a Firefly design today.


Loviu really liked The Dark Knight, presumably.


Catch of the Day Tee provide us with our second Doctor Who shirt for Wednesday.


Shirt Punch seem to be the only company that have realised The Muppets are really popular at the moment.


Very pretty design from DBH today.


Let me remind you that Rigu is a thing I launched last week and it would be brilliant if you could check it out.


Glennz has released a desktop calendar for 2012 featuring some of his favourite designs.


80sTees satisfy my thirst for Seinfeld t-shirts with this George Costanza ‘Professional Hand Model’ tee. for $22.


Monsieur Steve is offering 20% off in his store today only with the coupon code onlytoday, though you do have to spend €70 to qualify for the saving.


PLNDR have up to 55% off goods from Mishka NYC.


A few months back on I Am The Trend Monique from Antisparkle featured “3 Affordable and Creative Branded Packaging Ideas” that I’m sure store owners will want to take a look at.

I didn’t mean for this to turn into a daily roundup for store owner resources, but I’ve been finding some good stuff recently, here’s “Five Copywriting Errors That Can Ruin A Company’s Website” from Smashing Magazine.

Mashable have 7 Tips to Make Your Blog Stickier. A lot of shirt brands have a blog that this info can apply to, but it’s important to note that a lot of the tips apply to non-blog content too.

Kissmetrics have a super guide to marketing using Twitter, and also a post with a guy claiming to have a 2% bounce rate which if you know your bounce rates you know is astoundingly low.


I Am The Trend’s Black Friday List is up and it has more than 80 brands on it, crazy! My initial list will be up in a few hours.

Apparently this is old news, it was old news when Adam posted it over at IATT, got a bit older by the time I read it, and it’s even older now that I’m posting it. Still, if you haven’t seen it before, it might as well be new.

Along with these two new shirts Made With Awesome have also launched a new stripped back website that I feel might be a little bit too minimal for my tastes, but at least it puts the product front-and-centre, and that’s the most important thing.

rob dobi fullbleed interview

Dobi is always good value in an interview and this one conducted by I Am The Trend is no exception. It covers the Series 11 release from Fullbleed, the launch, growth and evolution of Mintees (his replacement for Emptees), and also offers advice for people thinking about running their own lines, and if there’s anyone that you should be getting advice from, it’s Rob.

how do clothing companies get their names

Adam over at IATT has come up trumps again with another interesting article, this time around he has asked 28 popular clothing companies how they got their names. Some of the stories are more interesting than others, but if you’re interested in the business behind the tees the article is worth a minute or two of your time.

I Am The Trend gets more trendy

by Andy on March 15, 2009

iamthetrend-indie-clothing-t-shirt-directory_1237007960776

It seems like lots of people are dropping new sites at the moment, maybe HYA needs a new lick of paint too? Gosh, maybe even an actual logo?

I Am The Trend‘s new site looks pretty damned sexy, here’s what’s changed:

Anyways we just relaunched our site complete with a ton of new features:
-Store
-Forum w/facebook connect
-Weekly Video Blog
-Free Swag
-More concentration on Music, Art, Products
-Guest Articles
-Larger product pictures

Check it out, hopefully this can propel IATT on greater things, I think that the indie clothing world needs a well-run directory (though it’s cool they’re covering music & art too), and they’re well on the way to coming through on that potential. Now, any chance we can do something about that ridiculous 2 star review of mine?
