teenormous are way more popular than me

There seems to have been a bit of a theme over the past few weeks of me writing posts saying various brands and companies are having birthdays/anniversaries, I guess there is something about the Summer air that makes people want to start a business instead of relaxing in the sunshine.

Teenormous are no different, they sprang to life on August 28th 2008 back when there seemed to be a few t-shirt search engines starting up, and judging by their stats they haven’t looked back since. Over the past 12 months they’ve seen 2.5 million people pass through their virutal doors, and those people have taken in 12 million pageviews, and they’ve done $800,000 of sales through the merchants that are in their inventory of 140,000 t-shirts. That’s huge growth considering they did $400,000 last year and that figure alone blew me away. Those numbers are pretty amazing, looking at their site it isn’t all that flashy, but everything you want is there, and that’s probably why people keep going back and using the service.

Am I envious? Hell yes! But, I know they put a lot of work into Teenormous so they must be congratulated for becoming a real force in the t-shirt world. Well done guys!



I’d like to think that Hide Your Arms does pretty well for itself, considering it’s just a blog written by one guy who hasn’t really got any formal experience in any of the things that he does or writes about. However, when I see the numbers that t-shirt search engine Teenormous are putting out after just one year of business, I get a bit jealous. I realise that we’re very different entities, but taking a look at their stats things are pretty impressive; 190,000 visitors a month, 750,000 pageviews a month, and estimating that their site has sent getting on for half a million dollars in sales to the t-shirt sites they index.

Still, it’s not about the numbers, it’s about the art, and that’s something I have to keep reminding myself about. Other tee bloggers may want to avoid Teenormous’ blog post about their first year unless you want to feel small. Seriously though, it’s good to see teeple doing well, congrats!


Teenormous are giving away 100 tees

by Andy on March 18, 2009


Teenormous, the other t-shirt search engine are giving away 100 t-shirts in what it is fair to say is a pretty darned large competition.

It;s fair to say that most of the companies involved with the competition don’t sell the kind of tees that I like, but it could be worse… much worse.
