Yellow Bird Project is a t-shirt website with an amazing concept–one of my favorite concepts, to be exact. First, Yellow Bird Project reaches out to a musical artist, Beach House in this case. The musical artist, Beach House, then designs a t-shirt to be sold on the Yellow Bird Project website. Pretty cool so far, right? It gets better though–Yellow Bird Project then donates the proceeds from the t-shirt to various charity projects. This is an incredible concept–you get music, art, t-shirts, and charity all combined in one cool site. The charity being donated to for this shirt is House of Ruth, a non-profit which helps victims of domestic abuse.
As I’ve mentioned, the musical artist who designed this shirt is Beach House, who are a really cool dream pop (love that label…) partnership from Baltimore. You should check them out–Used to Be is a particularly good song in my opinion. They’re also pretty good artists, as I legitimately like this crazy, pastel-colored trip of a house. You can pick this design up for $25.00 from Yellow Bird Project. It’s printed on American Apparel, and be sure to remember that the proceeds go to charity, which is a great thing.
Thirtee launched back on March 3rd, but I’m just now remembering to blog about it (I’m on top of things). They’ve based their store on a new concept which I really like. Every month they feature an artist and sell that artist’s best designs for 30 days (hence, Thirtee). You usually don’t see this much emphasis on the artist of the shirts, and I think it’s cool that Thirtee has changed that.
March’s artist is Greg Abbot, who I confess I’d never heard of before this. He’s got a really cool style though, so I recommend you check his stuff out. All Greg’s designs are only $12.00 each, which is pretty cheap for the quality of the designs and the American Apparel blanks. Go check Greg’s stuff out, and check back in April for Thirtee’s next artist!
This shirt is hilarious. Soccer is my favorite sport, and I love hooligans (as long as they’re not hurting things too much)…so it’s a bi-winning shirt. I love that the hooligan has a cigar in his mouth, even as he’s about to get billy-clubbed. Maybe Americans would like soccer a bit more if it were more like this shirt.
If you wanna celebrate your love of hooligans (and soccer), pick this shirt up for $20.00 from Headline Shirts. We’ve also got Headline Shirts coupons for you to save some money (always cool, right?).
P.S. We’ve got a t-shirt giveaway from Headline Shirts coming up, so that’ll be cool I think.
Are any of you readers fans of Gothic fiction? If so, you’ll probably dig this design from Shirt.Woot. It’s got the witty name of “Poe-etic”, and depicts Edgar Allan Poe’s face made up of those ravens he was ever so fond of. I definitely like this shirt–I think the name and the design itself are creative, and it surprises me that it comes from Shirt.Woot (I usually pigeonhole them as more of “geek” genre I suppose).
Head on over to Shirt.Woot if you’d like to grab this one. Don’t wait, because Shirt.Woot only sells their designs for so long. It costs $15 and I believe they still print on American Apparel.
I have a friend who plays a good deal of Tetris (yeah, I’m looking at you, Sefton), which fits half of this shirt. I don’t think, however, that he deals a lot of cocaine. I like the slogan, even though I’m not a cocaine mover myself. It’s pretty witty in my opinion. Plus, if you play Tetris and move a lot of cocaine (or even just the cocaine part) this shirt is super appropriate.
I like the combination the block’iness of the text with the actual Tetris blocks too. It looks cool.
If you wanna pick up the shirt it’ll cost you $24.95 at their store. The design appears to be printed on American Apparel.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything from Design by Humans, so I thought I would take some time on a Friday night to rectify that. I’ve gotta be honest, I’m not attracted to the majority of DBH’s designs anymore, but…I do really like this one. The yellow really pops–it’s got that pizazz!–and I dig the fluid, paint-splash’y rendering of the person. It looks overall cool. I might just have to buy this one.
If you would like to be cool like me, you can pick this one up for $21.00 at Design by Humans; it’s printed on an American Apparel blank (since when did Design by Humans start using American Apparel? That’s bangin’). I’ve also still got 10% off Design by Humans coupons for you to use, and I’m continuing to run my deal where I’ll give you 25% off your entire order (not stackable with the coupon unfortunately). Mad savings, yo.
I never really had any hockey affiliation growing up, but…since I now live in Philadelphia, I figured it’s only fitting for me to support the Flyers. I guess it was fate, then, when I got this email from Andrew letting me know about atslopes new “Fly” t-shirt.
The shirt is essentially the Philadelphia Flyers logo manipulated to spell out fly above the orange target (did that need explaining?). It spices up the logo a bit, and I dig it. If you share my enthusiasm, you can head over to the atslopes store and buy it for $20.00 printed on American Apparel.
So…this shirt is amazing. If you don’t know, this is based on a (famous?) picture of Nixon and Elvis shaking hands (see the original below), only with Nixon replaced with Darth Vader. Obviously, given how Nixon’s presidency turned out, the substitution is pretty hilarious. I like that it works on two levels–first, it’s funny for people who don’t know the original picture because it’s, well, Elvis and Darth Vader shaking hands. But for those who do know the picture, it’s even more humorous, as well as pretty dang political (if you want it to be).
I think this is one of my favorite Headline Shirts designs (and I like a lot of their shirts, so that actually means something). If you want this sweetness on your chest, you can buy it for $20.00 on American Apparel at their store. I also think the coupon I had for them is still working if you wanna check that out. I hope you enjoyed! Oh, read their product descriptions while you’re at the site–they’re often hilarious, and you’re missing out if you skip them.
I have to be honest, growing up I was totally a Playstation 1 kid (and then XBox, and then no video games), but…that doesn’t mean I can’t dig this new shirt from ReThink Clothing. It’s a simple shirt–just a one color rendering of a Nintendo cartridge. I think it looks great though. It’s kinda nerdy, but not weird nerdy (sorry if that offends! I mean it in the most loving way).
If you want to show your love for Nintendo, you can snag this design for $16.99 at ReThink Clothing. It’s printed on American Apparel blanks (score!).
P.S. My roommates and I have a N64 hooked up to the TV in our basement, so Nintendo has finally become a part of my life.
Celebrations! One of my favorite designs, Rap Music Makes Me Feel Invincible, is now back in stock. I’ve posted about this shirt before, but at that point it was out of stock (because everyone was buying it because it’s so awesome).
To reiterate my earlier post, I love this shirt because of the truth of this statement. I’m listening to rap (Kanye West-Power) while writing this post, and I’ve gotta level with you…I feel like a total badass. I’m gonna shower and then go tear the night up, because I’m invincibbbbblllllllleeeeeeeeeee.
Go pick it up at Print Liberation. You won’t regret your decision. If you’re having trouble getting the motivation to shell out $22.00, listen to some rap and then go make it rain.
Lastly, I’m hoping to get out to Print Liberation’s Northern Liberties, Philadelphia store soon (maybe even this weekend) so that will be cool. Maybe I’ll tell everyone a story about it.
