I just got an email from Jorge about his new Walking Dead Shop, and I definitely dig it. As you might surmise from the title, the shop is entirely dedicated to zombie t-shirts. There are a wide range of themes, but my favorite are the plays on company/government logos (eg. the Reese’s one, and the Uncle Sam one. pictured above and below). You can probably find the exact zombie t-shirt which fits you, whether that be zombie Sponge Bob or a classic “I <3 Zombies” t-shirt. Walking Dead Shop is definitely a great source for all your Zombie apparel needs.
Walking Dead Shop uses Red Bubble for their fulfillment, which gives you the option to customize the color and style of the t-shirt blank. So, if you’d prefer to have your zombie Uncle Sam on white instead of grey, you can definitely do that. The designs will run about $23.99 with the default option, but any changes you make could move that price up or down. You can check out all the zombie tees at Walking Dead Shop, just don’t get your brains eaten.
I’m happy to announce that, through teaming up with the people at Busted Tees, I’m able to offer you an exclusive deal for 25% off your entire order at Busted Tees. A Busted Tees coupon is usually only good for ~10% off of one’s order, so securing a 25% off discount is pretty damn cool in my opinion. There’s no limit or restrictions on how much you can save, nor is there a minimum purchase required. The coupon will last until September 30th, so you’ve got a full month to make your purchases with the discount code.
To get the 25% discount, all you need to do is enter the coupon code “TROUNDUP”. Once again, this coupon will get you 25% off at Busted Tees until September 30th. I’ll also try to get some more cool promos with Busted Tees, so let me know if you have any good ideas. Lastly, I’ve updated my dedicated Busted Tees coupon page and soon-to-be fan-site with the 25% off code, so you can also find it on the list there.
Happy shopping at Busted Tees, and I hope the code helps you save some money. As a hint, if you combine the code with some of their newly added sale tees you can get some really great deals. You can also get free shipping when you purchase four or more tees. So essentially, if you purchase four t-shirts, you get one of them for free (25% off) in addition to free shipping. It’s a solid deal in my opinion.
I’ve really been enjoying the Insound and Delicious Design band t-shirt collaboration. Therefore, when I saw their newest release was for a band I really like, I was super happy. The fourth installment of their collaboration is a great t-shirt for the band Smith Westerns, who hail from Chicago. Smith Westerns is one of the small number of modern bands I own on vinyl–I enjoy their first album that much. I’m going to be super happy to add this t-shirt to my collection as well. If you’re looking to a song to check out, I would recommend Be My Girl. It’s definitely one of my favorites from their discography.
So after all that textual praise of Smith Westerns, let’s talk about Insound and Delicious Design’s actual t-shirt. The design is called Ying-Yang Basketball, and if you look at it, that’s exactly what you’ll see. I’m not sure why they chose a ying-yang basketball (maybe I’m not up on my Smith Westerns biography and details), but I think the design comes off super cool and retro looking. I probably wouldn’t like these particular colors on most t-shirt designs, but I do like how they used it for this shirt. I think it came off great.
So, check out the Smith Westerns if you haven’t already, then buy this design for $19.99 at Insound. It’s a very limited edition t-shirt. Insound is also currently offering 15% off all their t-shirts, which would make the design only $16.99. You can then use our 10% off Insound coupon to lower the price even further ($15.30 I believe).
I can’t wait for the next Insound/Delicious Design release–I’ve been loving all of them so far.
I just got an email from Rob at GraphicLab about their cool new Star Wars themed t-shirt (Chewbacca to be exact). This design, titled Chew Toy, is a very quirky take on the Mos Eisley Cantina scene from Star Wars: A New Hope (I think I got that right). I believe the little toy Chewbacca is dragging around is Greedo, although it has been some time. Even if my details are possibly a bit fuzzy, I still think this is a fun and fan-specific Star Wars shirt. It’s also a bit goofy, which I always like.
If you dig Chewbacca’s Chew Toy and want to pick it up for yourself, it’ll cost you only $10.00 at GraphicLab. The shirt is only on sale until Sunday, and then it’s gone for good. This makes it quite a limited edition, and also makes it essential not to delay if you want to pick the shirt up and wrap it around your torso.
I’m stopping by on my way out tonight to let y’all know about a great new t-shirt brand called Goodfibres. Not only do they have some excellent shirts, but they’re also “Designed With Purpose.” Here’s a little explanation of what this means from their site:
No, we’re not just another t-shirt site. We like good design and fashion but we also think that, as artists, and friends of artists, we can do something big by teaming up our collective voice to help people who need it. Firstly, we aim to help the artists who participate – we do this in many ways, but mainly by allowing every designer to retain the rights to their artwork and by giving them 10% of the proceeds on each sale. Next, we want our artists and customers to feel that they are participating in something that is making a difference so we will match every purchase by donating to a community in need.
I’m always happy to support a store with great designs, and even happier when that store also donates to communities in need. I’ve chosen two of my favorite designs above, but I recommend you dig through the site in its entirety because there really are some great designs. You can pick up some cool tees and help some people out at the same time. The shirts typically cost 25 Pounds (dang exchange rate!). Goodfibres is based in Shoreditch, London and will definitely be featured more on troundup in the future.
P.S. If I go offline in the next few days it’s because the “rapture-es” Hurricane Irene will be storming through Philadelphia.
I was doing my usual browse around Etsy earlier today when I came across this awesome Star Wars t-shirt gem. It’s a masterpiece of absurdity. Darth Vader riding a bicycle is just as funny on a t-shirt as I thought it would be. I love it.
You can pick up this design for $23.00 from Iron Spider’s store on Etsy. It’s printed on American Apparel.
I was sifting through my incredibly overfull inbox tonight when I came across this great new brand called Pistols in Paradise. It’s got an urban feel to it, but it’s also got something else that appeals to me. I don’t usual like urban/street t-shirts but I dig pretty much all of these. You’ll have to just check out the designs yourself to get what I’m saying.
As I said, I like most of the designs I saw. I think this one is my favorite though–a combination creature of Biggie and Shakespeare. The shirt works on two levels for me. First, it’s just goofy…because it’s Shakespeare’s head on Notorious B.I.G.’s body. But, it also works because both men are poets in their own way, even if the delivery differs a bit.
Anyway, I’m a fan of Pistols in Paradise. You can pick up this design, as well as check out their other stuff, at their store. All their t-shirts cost $19.00 each.
Busted Tees has just launched a 24 hour back-to-school sale. For 24 hours only, all t-shirts at Busted Tees are on sale for only $12.99. This is a pretty huge difference from their usual $20 price.

You don’t have any time to lollygag around! So yeah, enjoy your super cheap Busted Tees shirts, but be sure to get your order in by noon tomorrow.
**UPDATE** The sale is extended until tomorrow, Saturday 8/13 at Noon Est. You have an extra 24 hours to get some super cheap Busted Tees t-shirts.
Hopefully you guys know how much I love Arrested Development by now. It’s definitely my favorite TV show. The writing is just amazing, and it has a superb cast as well. I love how every time I re-watch an episode I catch some new, funny detail. Given this fact, I was pretty ecstatic when I saw that Teefury had just released an Arrested Development t-shirt, especially one based on the Inc 500 company, Gobias Industries.
This shirt has some great references. In addition to the Gobias angle, the text at the top reads “Sudden Valleys Finest Coffee”, which is another hilarious bit from the show. You’ve got the doves and the cards from Gob as well, and the illustration of Tobias and Gob is quirky and great. I definitely dig this design. In fact, I’ve already purchased it!
In addition to being a hilarious and awesome t-shirt, it also has a great price. You can pick it up for only $10.00 from Teefury. As with all Teefury shirts, though, it is only for sale for 24 hours and then it’s gone forever. You have about 20 hours left to buy at the time of this posting. Don’t miss out on a great design for a low price.
Headline Shirts is starting a nice little line of shirts with outlandish and made up quotes from respected literary masters. Their “Shakespeare: This Shit Writes Itself” t-shirt is a classic, and now they added Mr. Mark Twain to the list. Mark Twain makes quite a few appearances on “top quotes” lists, but I doubt this little statement would make such compilations. Apparently Twain had a slightly more immature side, and was known for his epic “that’s what she saids”. I don’t think this one is as funny as the Shakespeare quote, but I definitely still enjoyed it. I hope they continue to make more of these designs, as I love the juxtaposition between respected writers and ridiculous quotes. I imagine you’d get quite a few confused stares if you wore this shirt around.
If you share my like for this concept and want to pick up the design, it will cost you $24.00 at Headline Shirts. We’ve also got a Headline Shirts coupon code, which should save you some solid money if you’re buying two or more shirts. As with all of Headline Shirts’ designs, you should definitely check out the product description–they’re often quite hilarious.
