RIBMAN_StanLee_Shirtpunch

Well the title says it all, POW! Entertainment, founded by Stan Lee (yes THE Stan Lee, comic book icon) is teaming up with tee-a-day site, ShirtPunch.com, to bring you limited edition merchandise! Even better, the series of designs will all be Stan Lee inspired and will be sold throughout the year of 2013 on ShirtPunch.com! Another added bonus, these designs will be sold for only a 24-hour period – after that they are retired and never printed again. I say this is a bonus because that clearly means these designs will be so unique and limited, possibly making these some of the most rare Stan Lee collectables out there since they are only available for purchase in that 24-hour time… and who doesn’t like getting their hands on limited edition merchandise, especially ones featuring a legend like Stan!

The first of the twelve Stan Lee inspired tees to be produced at ShirtPunch.com is this one pictured above appropriately titled Stan the Master designed by none other than Captain RibMan! This t-shirt is up for sale today, Friday, May 17th on Shirtpunch.com, and ONLY for 24-hours you must remember. I do say, this is a great start to this series – I can’t wait to see what ShirtPunch and POW! Entertainment will bring us next!

I’ll leave you with this, a statement from the man himself, Stan Lee, about working with Shirtpunch, which also conveys the devotion he has to his fans:

“Comic and Entertainment fans are certainly the most passionate community when it comes to collecting high-quality limited edition merchandise of their favorite super heroes and movies. By partnering with ShirtPunch to offer flash designs, I feel I am creating something very special and unique for my fans that I think will set apart from other merchandise they may have but is incredibly accessible, affordable and fun to own.”

Post image for T-shirt Review for Tee-a-Day Site – ShirtPunch!

It has been a while, but I am continuing on my reviews of the Tee-A-Day sites, this time with ShirtPunch! They offer a tee every 24 hours and each shirt begins it’s sale time at midnight EST – Eastern Standard Time. If you live in California, for example, it would change at 9pm. Living in the UK? The new tee goes live at 5am for you! I received my tees in a normal mailer, they were wrapped nicely in plastic inside the mailer, but what made it stand out was the Shirtpunch logo boldly presented on the front – adds a nice “punch” to the bag, don’t you think?

First up for review is an interesting tee and it took me a bit of curious questioning to understand the reference, but now that I understand it, I really like it! If you’re like me and not knowledgeable of classic video/computer games, then you might need some explanation. This tee is called A Better Tomorrow by Bob Mosquito and the t-shirt is essentially a cereal box design (probably figured that already), but what you might not know is it is also referring to Maniac Mansion II: Day of the Tentacle; a point-and-click 2D adventure game released on floppy disc or CDROM in 1993, wow I haven’t seen a floppy disc in ages. Well in the game the characters attempt to stop the evil Purple Tentacle (a sentient, disembodied tentacle) from taking over the world, sounds fun! I like that this reference is so obscure, yet the design is fun and interesting enough for a girl like me to enjoy.

This tee is actually printed on a Men’s Medium Black Gildan Softstyle and it obviously fits a lot larger than what I am used to. I still like to wear it though, it’s not uncomfortably too big, so why not? Print of A Better Tomorrow (and Scare-A-Lot, that tee’s next) are very good being as ShirtPunch prints using silk screening which always catches my eye for being a smooth and quality print. Not only that, but what I really like to see in a t-shirt company is a big print, and these prints are big! My only critique would be the tags – they are the original Gildan tags, and it would be nice to see a custom Shirtpunch sewn on tag or maybe a printed tag directly on the fabric.

I have a tee here a lot of you zombie fans would love, Scare-A-Lot by Truffleshuffle. It’s basically Care Bears in zombie land with a toxic rainbow, deadly little stars and hearts, and hideously cute bears staggering throughout the t-shirt. I especially love the blood (or ooze) flowing out of the one bear’s belly and the exposed ribcage on the other one – does add a bit of gruesomeness to the design! I am intrigued by the sweet, cheerful Care Bears that have been zombiefied; I like the juxtaposition.

This tee is printed on a Women’s Medium Black Gildan Softstyle which if given a Gildan, the Softstyle are the best for what they offer in my opinion. The fit is very good being the right length for me, feels good, and isn’t too tight. I don’t usually prefer this type of blank, but it is not a bad one in any means. (A really nice size chart is available for a more detailed description.) Shirtpunch also offers a variety of styles of apparel to get the design printed on – from tees to hoodies, as well as other things like posters, stickers, and buttons!

Overall Shirtpunch didn’t disappoint at all, they put out really nice quality tees, especially for only $10 a pop. Thanks to Jon (Buzatron) and all the folks at Shirtpunch for the opportunity to give a review of their tees. Thanks for reading!

Daily News & Tees for December 9th

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.

Daily Tees & News for November 15th

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 Tee & News Roundup for October 31st

by Andy on October 31, 2011

free hugs t-shirt

Hmmm, something seems a little fishy about this offer of free hugs at TeeFury.


Qwertee are giving us a realistic version of Sonic the Hedgehog (with Tails and Knuckles too).


Nowhere Bad have a Blade Runner themed shirt available.


Great image from Shirt.Woot.


Huh, not often that you get one Sonic design in a week, but thanks to The Yetee this is our second of the day.


TeeMinus24 have a Zombieland-themed shirt referencing the different ‘rules’ that Jesse Eisenberg has for surviving a zombie apocalypse.


I’m fairly addicted to Reddit, so I like this shirt from 24tee.


Mario Boos design from TeeRaiders today.


GraphicLab themselves admit that this style of shirt has been done to death, but ‘hopefully evil’ is something I haven’t seen before.


Shirt Punch give us the most explicitly Halloween themed shirt of the day with ‘Monster Mash.’


RIPT have a cool Mario-inspired shirt today. Is he fighting the power? Is Mario the 99%?


Vaughn de Heart have got a new look website and to celebrate they’re offering 30% off from now until November 6th with the coupon code Forza.


Mashable have got 10 reasons why your website could be costing you sales. Some of these things are pretty obvious, but I think all store owenrs should give them a quick look to get them thinking about their site.


TSHIRT STORE released a slew of great new tees, I think I’d wear every single one, which can’t be a bad thing.


As someone who writes for a living a post called ‘SEO for Non-Dicks‘ got my attention, and whilst SEO bores me to tears, it is unfortunately something that we people of the internet need to know about to get ahead, and that includes t-shirt site owners.
