Daily Tees & News for December 2nd

by Andy on December 2, 2011

teefury highlander t-shirt

When I opened all the daily sites today (21 tabs, Firefox doesn’t care for that much) I wondered whether I’d actually get to see the TeeFury site. Thankfully it turned up, so any possible malware that may have existed yesterday appears to have been removed and all is right with the world again. I remain disappointed by the response from TeeFury about the issue, it took them at least 13 hours to acknowledge any kind of problem (done by their Facebook page), and they only wrote about it after the warning message had been removed. They posted this message on Twitter at the same time as the Facebook message: “If you had trouble reaching http://teefury.com earlier, try now! We’ve addressed the issue that was causing problems: http://ow.ly/7LyK8″ That link now goes to a 404 page. Frankly, that is not good enough, if you might be exposing your fans to malware via your site you have to tell people by every avenue about the issue and warn them as soon as possible, not when you’ve fixed the problem, and you should make some kind of mention of it when you send out a newsletter that day (presumably to thousands of people). I still like TeeFury and will continue to write about them, but I do not like the way they dealt with this situation.


Nerd joke at RIPT today.

Daily Tees & News for December 1st

teefury reported attack page

Welcome to December. Naturally a lot of brands will be focusing on making sales during the run up to Christmas, and I suspect we’ll see a lot of coupon codes and discounts revolving around that, so the news portion of these roundups will likely grow. These roundups do take quite a lot of time, so if you like it, share it please!

When I try to visit TeeFury Firefox comes up with this. Now, I am 100% confident that Teefury has not been an elaborate phishing scam from the beginning, but after checking out their Facebook page it seems a lot of people have also had this message come up, so I feel that their site may have been compromised in some way. This happened to HYA once and it was hell getting it fixed as someone that doesn’t have much technical expertise, hopefully they will have it sorted soon and it doesn’t cause too many headaches, but I recommend anyone who has visited in the past few days to run a virus scan. There has been no response that I can see from Teefury as of yet.


Quite a clever shirt from Qwertee today, showing fictional books based on movies such as Ghostbusters and Back To The Future.


There’s a lot of excitement over at RIPT for this Star Wars x Transformers mashup.

pokemon t-shirt

I stopped updating the Black Friday t-shirt deal list once it hit 109 items and I got a migraine, but please remember that not all those deals were just for Black Friday, a lot of them carry on until today and a few beyond that too.

Not often that you’ll see a Pokemon x Katamari Damacy shirt, but TeeFury have given us a great one today.


Qwertee have a shirt about The Hulk today.


The dance of the blue footed boobie makes a return at Tilteed.


Nowhere Bad have dropped a shirt about National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, of course.


I don’t know if there’s any significance to XYZ on the shirt, but I like the idea of the zip in the Y. Stupidhurts.us.


This rather magical tee at Shirt.Woot is also available as a long-sleeve tee.


Swiss Army Wolverine, huh, didn’t see that one coming, RIPT.


Very clever shirt from The Yetee, I wouldn’t call myself a massive fans of the Aliens series, but this concept works really well.


A fairly oblique reference to Futurama from TeeMinus24, but it’s always good to see a Futurama t-shirt.


Very interesting Bowser shirt from 24tee today, good style to it.


TeeRaiders are responsible for our Doctor Who shirt today.


GraphicLab have dropped their latest shirt and it’s a delightful mashup or Scott Pilgrim and Back To The Future.


Very nice musical shirt at Loviu today.


Can anyone enlighten me as to what the Japanese (right?) text says on this Back To The Future tee at Shirt Punch?


Tshirt Contest are parodying Game of Thrones with this bacon flavoured t-shirt.


No new shirt from DBH today, but every tee is $15 for Cyber Monday, I think that’s a pretty good deal!


Kissmetrics take a look at whether having your phone number om your website will increase sales. Hint, it usually does.


Honour Over Glory have released their Autumn/Winter Range, so obviously they had to make a promo video featuring hot girls in the woods.


BustedTees Cyber Monday offering is already down to 20% off.


166 Days have knocked theer shirts down to £9.99 for the week.


Social Fabrik are offering 15% off all their shirts today with the coupon code CYBERMONDAY.

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.

walking dead t-shirt

Very nice Walking Dead t-shirt at TeeFury today. Anyone else watching this show?


I’m surprised that Qwertee have this shirt on sale since it’s part of 604Republic‘s permanent catalogue.

USB Flash t-shirt

Sorry that the roundup is so late today, I had to go and pick up my cousin at the airport, and the airport is kind of far away.

Does anyone really like USB flash drives enough to buy this shirt from TeeFury.

Daily Tees & News for November 15th

by Andy on November 15, 2011

donnie darko t-shirt

Thinking about it, I haven’t seen Donnie Darko. $10 at TeeFury today.


I suppose this isn’t a new design from Tilteed, but at least this is a design we haven’t seen in the past couple of months.


One thing that I’ve never liked about blogs is tag clouds, they don’t really tell you anything, and whilst I realise that this Nowhere Bad shirt isn’t a Star Wars tag cloud it was what I thought of when I saw it.


Cool shirt from Stupidhurts.us today, I like the ink splatters coming out of the head.


At Halloween I made pumpkin ice cream, it was surprisingly good. Shirt.Woot


Sometimes I wonder if the daily sites are producing too many Doctor Who shirts, though I presume that if people weren’t buying them they wouldn’t be selling them. RIPT.


I haven’t watched enough Firefly to give a damn about this Firely t-shirt from 24tee.


I don’t get it, Loviu.


Nice shirt from Catch of the Day Tee today.


Haha, it’s surprising that there aren’t more Muppets shirts around, and this is a nice one from Shirt Punch.


This DBH shirt isn’t for me, but it’s certainly well done.


BustedTees have added 12 new shirts to their $10 clearance section, including the classic ‘Strictly for my ninjas’.


‘Our Bodies are our gardens’, nice concept well executed from A Better Tomorrow.


Use the coupon code PILLAGE10 to get $10 off your order at PLNDR, and if it’s your first order you’ll get another $10 gift certificate just for shopping. Seems like they’re pretty desperate to get you to buy something.


PalmerCash have some Sesame Street hats that will be worn by that kooky girl that thinks she’s an individual like everyone else.


Weirdest t-shirt promo video ever (caution, contains male nudity, just from the back), sometimes you can just tell that people are from Shoreditch. Twantard


Cottonable are giving away two shirts from HelloFresco, and all you have to do to enter is leave a comment.


Digital Gravel have added a whole bunch of $15 tees to the site, but for a limited time only.


Valourandvellum has released a free hi-res t-shirt mockup.

Kissmetrics have a good guide for how to make the most of web analytics that I reckon will be handy for brand owners.


Get 15% off when you spend £100+ at Urban Industry with the coupon code UIXMAS, and don’t forget there’s free shipping on all orders until December 19th.

Daily Tees & News Roundup for Novmeber 7th

by Andy on November 7, 2011

Starship Troopers t-shirt

When I first saw Starship Troopers I thought it was awesome because of all the guns and explosions, and even a couple of boobs here and there, but now that I’m an adult I realise that it’s actually a bit smarter than it’s often given credit for. $10 today at TeeFury.

Daily Tees and News for November 5th

by Andy on November 5, 2011

coffee-aid t-shirt

Oh yeah! TeeFury


Were Tilteed not selling this design just a couple of weeks ago?


Nice Zelda shirt (right reference?) at Shirt.Woot today.


RIPT bring us a Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure mashup today.


It always amazes me how few Simpsons t-shirts there are out there. The Yetee.


Was someone else selling this Buffy the Vampire Slayer t-shirt recently? No matter, it’s available at OtherTees now.


I don’t know what or if there is a reference on this 24tee shirt, but it’s a pretty cool design either way.


A quick Google tells me that this TeeRaiders ‘Miranda Reavers’ design is something to do with Firefly.


At first I was like, “oh, that’s nice” then I looked at this Loviu design a little closer.


Oh man, I’d just written a whole thing about not getting the reference on this Shirt Punch tee, then it hit me, Marty McFly from Back To The Future?


Coty of CotyGonzales.com fame has a new-ish site called Exploration Hawaii all about hiking around Hawaii. We have some stunning walks around where I live (it may be called the Lake District, but there are hills around all those lakes), but the places he’s going look amazing. He’s running a little competition to win a $25 gift certificate from Threadless that I’m sure you’ll want to enter before November 10th.

Kissmetrics have a viral marketing cheat sheet that brand owners may want to check out.


Cuppa-T have put up their Christmas shipping dates.


PalmerCash are doing their bit for Movember.


Urban Outfitters (in the UK/Europe at least) are offering free shipping this weekend.


Hot Topic have updated their monthly coupon code, you can get 20% off with HTA20NOV providing you spend at least $60. Coupon expires December 2nd.


HYA blogger Sleepy Dan has added some snap back hats to his store, expect a behind the scenes look at how they were printed here in the next day or so.


Threadless have added some gorgeous (and massive) graphics to their partnership with Blik.


Make Believe have released a short but delightful video that really captures the spirit of their brand.


Terratag have got a grab bag offer going on that I think gives really good value. They’re mystery tees or sweats/hoodies, so you’ll have to be a big fan of Terratag, but since they have a fairly cohesive range, I think if you like one of their shirts you’ll probably like most of them.


Shirt designers always need more textures right? Apparently this free texture pack at Mintees is mighty fine.


Looks like Mintees are going to be opening a marketplace, which is going to be another nail in the coffin of ShirtHive (another idea I had but couldn’t find the time for).


There’s a really funny interview with former HYA blogger Randyotter at TheShirtList.
