by Andy on January 6, 2012

space invaders t-shirt

Very cool Space Invaders shirt from TeeFury today.


‘The birthplace of inspiration’ is up at Shirt.Woot today.


8-bit Back To The Future? Yes please, RIPT.


Fairly obscure Terminator design at Shirt Punch today.


Nowhere Bad reminds of another badass facet of Lincoln’s character.


TeeMinus24 bring out a pop art inspired Admiral Ackbar shirt.


24tee have a shirt for hipsters.


Shirt with a wolf on it at DBH.


I’m sure that TeeBlitz have sold this design before, and it’s a little odd that the time remaining for the design is “-359 days”, but hopefully that doesn’t mean there’s trouble at TeeBlitz.


Loviu wheel out this older design.


Oldie-but-goodie at Tilteed today.


Get 30% off at Seventh.Ink this weekend with the coupon code NEWYEAR2012. [via TeeGazette]


Labyrinth Clothing have a page on The Fancy, and if you ‘fancy’ (the equivalent of ‘like’ on Facebook) any item in their store you’ll unlock a 20% off coupon code.


OMUNKY have added prints to their lineup of goods.


Jeff has shared a few teasers of the his design process on Ugmonk‘s next design.


The UTee just launched a new design. Feel free to go and check it out, but don’t forget which is your favourite tee blog!


Mashbale has a post on how to maximize sales with your ecommerce design.


Here’s Miley Cyrus wearing a Pink Floyd t-shirt, I’m sure that will annoy no one.



Tonka Park are selling two of their popular Big Cartel themes at $25 off, making them $50 each for a limited time. Use coupon code THELBL2012 to get $25 off The Label, and DECMBR2012 for $25 off the December theme.

May I suggest that you advertise on HYA? Options available to suit all budgets.

And that’s the news for today!

3 new Big Cartel Themes from Tonka Park

by Andy on October 31, 2011

big cartel themes



I’ve got a Tonka Park making the HYA store look pretty (well, pretty enough), and I like a lot of the work that Matt does for the Big Cartel community. He’s just dropped 3 new themes and as usual they’re delightfully clean (one is even designed with mobile devices in mind, reordering and resizing content to take account for your browser size). I’m sure that some of you may find $100 for a theme to be a bit steep, especially when Big Cartel is quite a cheap service, but when you consider how much you’ll be paying for tee designs and printing then $100 isn’t really that much to have a good-looking store set up in a couple of hours.

Tonka Park have also updated their Big Cartel WordPress plugin, and HYA is given a surprising mention in the announcement of it’s release. You can now embed a widget on you WordPress site showing a product list (organised in the same order as in your BC product admin area), and also use shortcodes to post items from anyone’s store in blog posts, that means I could embed shirts from Big Cartel stores straight into posts, which is pretty nifty.

big cartel SEO

One of the compromises of using a hosted storefront like Big Cartel or Storenvy is that even though you do get some degrees of control, you’ll not be able to configure every aspect of the system the way that you would like. For a lot of people this is okay, they just want a simple storefront that they can use to sell their tees, but it does of course have a few drawbacks.

I am quite sure that Big Cartel are well set up for search engine optimisation within their system, but there are a few things you can do to further help yourself and hopefully move up the rankings in Google searches, hopefully getting you more sales in the process.

Tonka Park is a small Big Cartel Theme shop (the HYA shop actually uses one of their themes) has put together a short guide with four things that you can do to your store quite quickly and quite easily that should help your SEO almost immediately.
