Daily T-shirt News Roundup for January 12th

by Andy on January 12, 2012

cthulu t-shirt

Am I the only person on the internet that doesn’t have an obsession with Cthulu? $10 at TeeFury.


Shirt.Woot are playing on the idea (I think) that Shakespeare didn’t write his own plays with this ‘Ghost Writer’ t-shirt.


There’s no pop culture reference in this RIPT design… I don’t know how to react, where’s the reference, WHERE’S THE REFERENCE!


OtherTees offer up a splattered Portal Companion Cube for the next few days.


And there’s your Doctor Who t-shirt for the day at Shirt Punch.


I’d like to see how this shirt at DBH prints, but I do love the artwork.


I don’t think this is the first time 24tee have posted a Big Lebowski tee, they must be fans.


Hey look, Loviu are selling that Joker design again.


Hey look, Tilteed are selling that weird shark fortress design again.


Made With Awesome are on Fab.com until Jan. 15th, the sale isn’t on the site yet, but it will be at some point today.


Do you like talking about tees, then talk about tees at teetalk next Wednesday, January 18th at 8pm EST. I doubt I’ll be involved since it starts at 1am UK time, by which time I’ll likely be tucked up in bed. More details at their Facebook page, and here’s a link to the chatroom.



Free shipping at laFraise when you spend 60€ or more, no coupon code required. laFraise also recently hired a new strawberry, Katinka, who will be running the German-language blog, as well as handling less fascinating things like admin and SEO.


Light Design in Spain have a sale on for their musically inspired t-shirts.



Simply Tap is a mobile shopping app, if you buy a MoreTvicar t-shirt with it (and it’s your first Simply Tap purchase) you’ll get £10 cashback. They also have a number of tees on sale from £4.99, which is pretty damn cheap.


Smashing Magazine have a good roundup of free fonts you may want to add to your design arsenal.

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.

hide your arms

I don’t mean to mention every post that Smashing Magazine make, but I thought this one would be really useful to people working in the clothing business, especially as it’s something that I find lacking with brands that aren’t particularly mature and are still getting a handle on things. They’ve written a guide to copywriting, the aim of which is to get you selling more tees. Well, their guide is for products in general, but all the advice is applicable to tees as well. I think that my advice in the title just about covers it, but I’m sure you guys want more than just a bullet point.

How to prepare artwork for screenprinting

Smashing Magazine seems to absolutely nail it every time they do a tutorial, and whilst I’m no expert on the screenprinting process, they seem to have done it again with an excellent tutorial about how to prepare your images for printing in Adobe Illustrator.
