blue colour chart t-shirt

I really like this shirt, I don’t think it actually has 50 different colours on it (50 screens for the design? It would cost hundreds!), but that doesn’t take anything away from it. Each block on the colour chart relates to a song which has ‘blue’ in the title, nice idea and great execution.

Daily Tees & news for December 14th

ghostbusters t-shirt

My internet connection has been misbehaving recently so don’t be surprised if there are less updates on HYA over the next few days.

I think that the pixelation might be my favourite part of this Ghostbusters shirt at TeeFury.

Why would you get a breakfast buffet at night? Or does the text at the bottom mean that they serve breakfast, a buffet at lunch, and then table service in the evening? I can’t help but feel I’m focusing on the wrong aspect of this RIPT shirt.

The Yetee have dropped a mashup shirt for fans of Pokemon and the Evil Dead.

TeeMinus24 are trying to keep everyone happy.

How have I not seen this Star Trek concept before? 24tee

I really like this collage shirt from Loviu.

I think I remember a not-particularly-memorable fighting game where you did climb a totem pole as to cleared the levels, anyone? Cool Street Fighter design from Bamboota at Shirt Punch, and I’m glad they’re going with that big print otherwise the design would have been dwarfed by the rest of the shirt.

Another nice but hard to describe shirt from DBH.

I think this shirt on BustedTees Deal of the Day for $9 makes a lot of sense at Christmas, since it’s the time of year when your parents force you to stop playing Kinect and dust off board games instead. Busted Tees have also extended their sale, use the coupon code CHEAPTEES to get your shirts for $12.99 or less.

Here’s a first for me from Tee Mashups, a Domino’s x Star Wars mashup, well, somebody had to do it, I guess.

Internal Error is the £10 festivitee at origin68.

Shirt.Woot have a depressing t-shirt on sale today. have a Charlie Chaplin design that I don’t understand, possible explanations in the comments please.

A classic Greg Abbott design is back on sale at Tilteed.

PalmerCash have lots of new t-shirts and yes, that is the guy from breaking Bad.

Sneaky Studio are offering free shipping until the New Year with the coupon code SANTA.

Get 25% off your order at Dephect this month with the coupon code DEC11.

UK XFactor winners Little Mix tweeted a picture of themselves wearing shirts from Truffle Shuffle when they were interviewed by Chris Moyles on Radio 1.

Boing Boing are selling this cool half-knit zombie ski-mask that might confuse a few people on the slopes.

80sTees are giving away this Griswald Family Christmas shirt when you spend $50 or more. [via Rude Retro]

Monster Press are showing off their printing prowess by selling this sample shirt designed by Craig Robson for £5. Monster printed the grey shirt in the HYA store if you’d like to see what their printing is like on a tri-blend.

Among Villains are giving away $150 of goods, check out this Mintees post to see how you can be in the running.

my little pony pokemon t-shirt

I don’t really understand the crossover between My Little Pony and Pokemon, but I’m sure some of you will.

Having never watched Venture Bros I’m not particularly enamored with today’s shirt at RIPT.

Nice 8-bit tee at Shirt.Woot today.

clockwork orange t-shirt

Apparently this Clockwork Orange t-shirt is referencing something that’s popular on YouTube I’ve never heard of, and judging from the comments on TeeFury today it’s not something I need to know about.

‘Infant Mutant Ninja Turtles’ from Qwertee is a concept that you would have thought someone would have picked up on a long time ago, and yet I don’t think I’ve seen it before.

Quite a nice Inception-based shirt from Nowhere Bad today.

boardwalk empire t-shirt

Hope everyone had a good weekend, I did, during my snowboarding lesson at the dry slope it started to snow!

I can’t be the only person that feels kind of scared when this guy comes on screen during Boardwalk Empire, right? Definitely some fine acting going on there. TeeFury.

RIPT have a shirt that I’m sure will not anger any Star Wars or Star Trek fans.

Qwertee have dropped a Shining/Joker shirt for Jack Nicholson fans.

Daily Tees & News for December 2nd

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 earlier, try now! We’ve addressed the issue that was causing problems:″ 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.

Origin68 Festivitees [Submitted]

by Matt on December 1, 2011

Christmas is nearly upon us and to celebrate we are having a bit of a sale. For each day leading up to Christmas we will be placing a shirt on a 24 hour period sale! The next day, a different shirt and so on and so forth.

To follow the announcements of which shirts are going on sale next, join us for daily updates on Facebook
or follow us on Twitter

Also every time you participate and buy one of the daily shirts you will earn an entry into our Christmas raffle; the winner of which will get a matching pair of shirts, so you can share it with a loved one… or if you really love the shirts, just keep two for yourself!

So get involved in the Festivitees!

Andy: I will try and remember to post about the latest Festivitee in the daily roundup, shout at me if I forget!

This post was submitted by Matt.


It’s coming up for our birthdays… don’t ask us how old we are, it’s rude to ask a web-based t-shirt retailer such things. Shocking manners. But we still love you! To celebrate we have decided to have a summer sale! You lucky lucky people.
Pop over to the shop and have a look

Andy: Getting their shirts for £10 is ridiculously good value, get on this.

beatles work schedule t-shirt

I’m sure I’ll catch a lot of flak for this again, but I’m not a fan of The Beatles, I have nothing against them, I just haven’t taken the time to delve into their back catalogue because it has never really appealed to me. However, I know that there are a lot of people that are truly obsessed with the Beatles, which is clearly evident from the shirt at the top. Artist Michael Deal has been exploring the Beatles music through the means of infographics, and the shirt above charts their working schedule from 1963-1966 in a really rather beautiful way.

The lower shirt was created by an Indonesian graphic designer called Myutas who based the design around the phrase “the longer you look back, the farther you can look forward.” I can see a lot of truth in that saying, but to be honest the shirt isn’t really my style.

Both are available from Origin68, Manchester’s finest tee label.


Prince once blamed it on something in the water, messing with his computeé shizzle, but we know pretty much anything can throw a spanner in the pipes causing a massive internal errors.

Saying all that it’s not just those damn computers that have internal error’s, us humans are perfectly capable of having our own internal meltdowns too.

We’re pleased to say that Mr Melvin Galapon has crafted this shirt, a homage to the error. Our legal eagle, Eddie, recommended a legal disclaimer, so this shirt comes with a special Origin68 public health warning… we will not be held liable if you stare at this one for any longer than 6.8 seconds. It has be known to melt eyes/minds, sofas and small reptiles.

[Andy: I’m just going to put this out there, I think that Origin68 produce some of the best design of any brand in the UK. Don’t agree? Tell me who you think is better.]

si scott t-shirt origin68 Si Scott is huge in the illustration world, a genuine ‘get’ for a brand, so it’s really cool to see Origin68 putting out one of his designs, and even cooler that it is such a beautiful shirt. I would say that it doesn’t particularly look like a dove to me, but I’m probably just being a bit picky as it does definitely look like a bird, and calling it ‘Dove’ is far more attractive than ‘pigeon’.

Rockin' the Tree World t-shirt by Origin68

Since I’ve been on my ‘summer holiday’ to me it feels as if the summer is already over, which probably has more than a little bit to do with the lack of sunshine since I got back from Cornwall. However, I’m sure it still feels like summer to a lot of you guys, and this is most definitely a summer festival shirt from the Origin68 crew, though I’m sure you could get away with wearing it when you aren’t in a muddy field drinking over-priced lager and trying to avoid sunstroke.

Origin68 T-Shirt

My favourite bunch of tee selling Mancs, Origin68, recently rehashed their website, and mighty fine it looks too. They also released a couple of new tees, and this is one of them, looks good, right?

Human Being by Origin68

by Andy on January 4, 2010




I saw this tee and was immediately reminded of the ‘Ingredients’ tee I featured back in August. They are fairly similar in concept (in fact there was a comment on HYA on Christmas day saying the previously mentioned Ingredients tee was ripping off Origin68, which obviously doesn’t take account of Ingredients going on sale first), but I think I prefer this iteration as it feels more complete as a design and pushes the idea of humans as a product even further. Also, Origin68 put together a pretty sweet bit of blurb about this design.

This one is our Human Being design. If us Human’s came in packets (like pretty much everything does these days) we reckon they would look something like this. After all we’re a bit like the usual stuff that comes in big boxes… we’re fragile, need to be kept dry, handled with care… And kept the right way up! Especially after a couple of cheeky beers! You can be a walking talking human box… Maybe a beat box… But we’ll leave that choice to you!

Also, much like us, these shirts are organic! So you can enjoy this shirt without annoying the fudge out of Mother Nature!

I was actually in Manchester this weekend, which is the home of Origin68, there’s not really much more to that story, so, ummmm, yeah…

How cool is this tee!

If you’re looking for a backstory to this tee, basically, in 1968 some French students were pissed off so they rioted. If you aren’t, hey, here’s a cool looking tee. Also, I’ll be driving past Paris next weekend, yay!

New Designs & Website from Origin 68

by Andy on December 2, 2008

HYAs software has decided to start misbehaving, so whilst I sort it out don’t expect much in depth blogging, plenty of errors coming up, and possibly no blogging at all.

Origin68 have released a couple of new designs (the other one is in the gallery):

The first is IT BEGAN IN ’68 which pays hommage to our name and references the world changing year that was 1968. The second is simply RETRO ELECTRO. Both retro and electro at the same time. Check out the tweedy goodness!

They’ve also redesigned their site to make it a bit easier to navigate.
