Post image for Celebrate the end of Movember – One Less Mustache [Submitted]

While Movember has men around the world sprouting facial hair and raising awareness on important men’s health issues, it also has many a girlfriend counting the days until December first. One Less™ Nemesis is happy to help the ladies celebrate with its brand new design, One Less Mustache.

The One Less Mustache design features a full and fluffy mustache being chased by its arch-nemesis, the razor. Printed in Seattle on 100% combed, ring spun cotton quality t-shirts, the light blue One Less Mustache shirt is a great gift or a great way to celebrate the end of the unwanted ‘mo.

One Less Mustache, along with One Less Rainy Day and One Less Cupcake, are all on sale for $19.99 (reg. $24.99) through December 14.

Andy: With all that Movember talk I was expecting there to be a charity angle to this submission, but apparently not.

Post image for Movember Tees, Regular Tees, iPhone cases, and their website: All new at Fuzzy Ink!



Loads of new stuff up at Fuzzy Ink, including 6 new vintage-style shirts from their collaboration with the Movember Foundation, three new designs from their regular line of mustache-inspired tees, some of their most popular designs being put on cases for the iPhone 4/4S, and last but not least, a very clean and slick new website. I like the new site, it puts the new products front and centre, making it easier for a customer to see what they’re all about.

Motivate Clothing T-Shirt Review

by Amy_F on July 3, 2012

Motivate Clothing Company

I was so excited when I got home from work a couple nights ago as my mom places all my mail on my work desk and I was pleasantly surprised to find amongst all my bills was a pretty package from Motivate Clothing Company.  Still fairly new to blogging on here, this will be my very first review and this is the perfect company for me to start with!

Let me begin with the customized poly-bag mailer that Motivate’s clothing arrived in, was not only sophisticated but simple and classy.  A slick black bag with a gold circle logo yet with a handwritten return address label.  Though you’d assume that if a company is spending the money for custom mailers they’d splurge for a custom return label – yet I have to say it was a nice personal touch.  Owning my own clothing company I actually do the opposite – no custom mailer but a custom return label.  Hey, personally I think either way balances the scale nicely!

I had no idea what shirt I was getting but I had secretly mentioned to Andy that I was kind of obsessed with the Fingerstache T-shirt off their website.  Well what do you know, I ripped open the package and I guess a little birdie squealed on me or it was fate, because exactly what I wanted was inside!!

I reached in and grabbed what items were floating around and what I ended up pulling out totally made me laugh.  Alongside a small zip baggie of custom buttons was a small baggie of Warheads!! Yes, the candy!  I burst into laughter because well as a second job aside from running my own business I am a Nanny.  A few days ago I confiscated a HUGE bag of Warheads from the kids to which I had absolutely no idea where they got them from and they had no idea I took them away and hid them with my own stash of food.  So when I pulled out a small baggie of Warheads, it was just too ironic and I couldn’t help but chuckle.  Needless to say aside from the buttons and candy there was also a lot of stickers and business cards.  I’m not sure how I feel about a bag of candy placed in with my clothing item.  I mean if they send that out with all the orders, I’d just worry that if the package sits too long in a hot area, those things melt.  Even though they have them in a small ziplock bag, I’d still be concerned that it’d melt, leak and/or ruin the stickers or even worse, the clothing.

I really do enjoy when a company takes the time to include a little hand-written note in the package.  It really adds to the charm and appeal of an indie brand.  Of course Motivate Clothing didn’t disappoint and sent me a small hand-written note with an awesome discount code that I predict I’ll be using in the near future!  It was a nice touch as well as throwing in the clothing companies business card and the owner’s personal business card.  I’m not sure if this is done in every package or was just for me but Cory (the owner/designer/creative director at Motivate) has some pretty rad business cards!! (Check them out in the above photo ie: Witty Walrus haha)

My only reservation about the little extras companies include in a package is ‘less is more’.  Again, I’m not sure if some of these items were thrown in just for me being that I blog and am a fellow business owner and were for my personal keeping or they’re included in every package but I mean I would have been satisfied with 1 or 2 stickers; 5 might have been over-doing it.  Then again, who can ever have enough stickers, right?

Now onto the design, Fingerstache!  Motivate Clothing Company donates 10% of proceeds from each different shirt to a particular cause.  I really love this about them and think it makes shopping a bit more fun knowing that you’ll be somehow contributing to a meaningful cause meanwhile having a keepsake that you can wear.

Fingerstache’s proceeds (10%) are donated to Movember.  Movember is where men usually don’t shave for the whole month of November to raise funds and awareness for men’s health; specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.  Having been unaware (because I didn’t read their website description when I first noticed the shirt saying how much I liked it) what this particular design stands for, after reading the hang-tag on my shirt that Motivate so cleverly includes, I was very very pleased.  Some of these particular heath issues and cancers hit close to home for me which made this shirt that much more meaningful to me!

I like buying t-shirts that have an incredible product description or that have a really great/deep meaning so this is a definite 2 thumbs-up for me for Motivate donating to such great causes.  Check out their website to see what other causes they donate to and which shirt belongs to which!!  Very inspiring and motivational (pun intended).

Overall the t-shirt was super-soft and the design simple yet creative.  I’m not sure if it bothers me or I like the fact that the hand on the shirt reminds me of those clip-art directional hands.  You know what I’m talking about.  Either way this design is meant to be simple with the emphasis on the stache on the finger and I thoroughly enjoy it.  The shirt is a dark grey and the print is a lighter grey.  Looking on their website the shirt looks black which may be slightly confusing for some because they don’t have an actual product photograph up.  I have to say though the one thing that I was a bit sad about was that this is a unisex fit t-shirt and I love the design so much that I wish it were on a women’s fit for myself so I would be more willing to wear it on a daily basis.  I wear a lot of t-shirts to work and out and about but only if they fit me nicely and usually unisex ones I save for when I’m at home lounging or sleeping.  Even though it’s a small it fits me pretty large and I’m sort of hoping if I wash it once or twice I’ll shrink it enough to want to wear out – though it’ll never fit like an actual women’s t-shirt fits, so that’s a bummer and really the only downfall.

I’ll definitely be keeping my eye on Motivate Clothing Co. and what they come out with next and more importantly what cause it’ll be for.  Their shirts are only $20.00 and are top quality!  I love what they’re doing and will be ordering from them in the future hopefully for myself if they produce some women’s cuts :) !!  Be sure to check out their website  for a shirt that may inspire or hit close to home for you.

Thanks for the awesome tee & goodies Motivate!!

Keep up with them on Facebook and Twitter as well – I know I will be!

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.

Daily Tee and News Roundup October 26th

by Andy on October 26, 2011

twin peaks t-shirt

I had no clue what this shirt was about so I looked in the TeeFury comments, apparently it’s Twin Peaks.


‘A study in turtles’ at Tilteed could easily be renamed ‘a study in cuteness’.


Very cool zombie defense t-shirt from Nowhere Bad today.


Nice use of negative space from Stupidhurts.us, very wearable shirt.


Cool tee from Shirt.Woot, I’m sure I’ve seen this ‘taking the bus’ concept (and possibly even this shirt) before, maybe it was at Tilteed?


Fun shirt from RIPT for what I’m sure are the massively overlapping audiences of the Watchmen and Hello Kitty.


I had to look this TeeMinus24 shirt up, apparently Zarek is something to do with Battlestar Galactica.


Thou shalt not rip on 24tee every day. Different strokes for different folks. Actually, this shirt is pretty cool.


At first I thought that this Loviu shirt was just a paint blob, which would have been cool, and then I notice the stars and Saturn, which definitely kicked it up a notch.


I don’t get it? Catch of the Day Tee.


Really nicely put together Back To The Future design from Shirt Punch, they’ve certainly come out of the blocks strongly.


Adam over at I Am The Trend has put together a video review of White Pine Patriot, how do they stack up against his 4P’s of tees.



Camiseteria have released a couple of great new tees that you will have to test your Portuguese on if you really want to buy them.


All white tees are on sale at Typography Shop, all down to $14.99 until they’re sold out.


This Australian fellow wants to get into the t-shirt game, and he’s going down the Rockethub route (that’s Kickstarter for people without US bank accounts), give him your support if you like the tee.


Apparently New Zealand is back to work and being productive after their World Cup win at the weekend, because Cuppa-T will be selling tees at the Armageddon Expo in Auckland this weekend.


It’s almost November so you know what that means, seeing guys with really thin mustaches doing their bit for charity. I’m tempted to give it a go myself, would any of you guys sponsor me? Fuzzy Ink have a global partnership with the Movember Foundation this year, and they’ve produced some great shirts for the occasion.

fuzzy ink movember t-shirts

I was really tempted to get in on Movember this year, only because I didn’t shave until the weekend and whilst I had that beard I was thinking “hey, this could be a moustache!” but alas I didn’t have the balls to go through with it, so I’ll try and console myself by posting about Movember, in the hope that some of you pick up a tee, sending a donation to Movember in the process.

The four tees you can see above aren’t just Fuzzy Ink ‘tribute’ tees, they’ve actually partnered up with Movember to offer some legit tees, from which $5 of every sale will be going to chairty. The tees cost $21 (just like their regular shirts), and will presumably be available beyond the end of this month, but you might as well buy one now since it’s the right time for it.

Mustache by Busted Tees

by Andy on November 10, 2009

bustedtees.9c850f62440dbbfb610df06cb2d15df6

I was a bit tempted to get involved with Movember (the annual charity drive based around growing mustaches) this year, because I’m a pretty hairy guy and it would be nice to have an opportunity to be lazy and not shave, but I got a cool electric shaver for my birthday so I’m still having fun with that… cop out much?

This tee is on sale during Movember, but I don’t think that means BustedTees are giving any of the sales are to charity.

Costiness=$12 Available from BustedTees
