The Plumber’s Empire–Mario T-Shirt from Go Ape Shirts

Go Ape Shirts is at it again; and by “it”, I mean making really awesome t-shirts. Their latest offering, The Plumber’s Empire, delves into the much-loved world of Mario. The design depicts, in humorous and 8-bit stylized fashion, what Mario’s domain might look like on our very own planet Earth. I love both the concept and the execution–well done Go Ape Shirts! It’s also cool to check out where your home would lie on Mario’s map.

You can pick up this design for the fair price of $20.00 at the Go Ape Shirts store. It’s printed on American Apparel. Also, I apologize if this post is not written very good (sic). I know rambling abounds, and a few cliches decided to come along for the ride. However, I’m feeling fairly crappy right now, so the most elequent words are, perhaps, not flowing from my head that well. I’ll be back tomorrow with a vengeance, though!

Art vs Music T-Shirt from Poketo

This shirt is out of stock in everything but size Large, so I guess this post is a little bit of a tease. I dig the design though, and I wanted to share it with people anyway. Plus, if you are a size Large, it’s in stock and on sale. You’re welcome!

The design is simple–it’s just art fighting it out with music in the age old debate. I love the style of the design though, especially the geometric nature of the two figures. It looks super cool. Also, art kind of looks like its holding a lightsaber…so thumbs up for that.

You can pick up this design for the low sale price of $14.00 at the Poketo store. As I mentioned, it is unfortunately only in stock in a unisex/men’s Large.

P.S. Hopefully you have been taking advantage of the plethora of Independence Day t-shirt sales. If not, I would get on that.

Busted Tees Gets in on the Sale Action Too!

Not to be outdone by Threadless or Snorg Tees, Busted Tees has just jumped headfirst into the awesome pool of Independence day sales with their Patriotic Freedom Sale (how’s that for being American?). While their sale isn’t quite as cheap as Threadless, it’s still a great deal. All their shirts are on sale for $17.76 (get it?) AND you get free shipping. So while you only get about a $2.50 discount on the shirt itself, the fact that you get free shipping on any sized order makes this deal pretty sweet. You can order one or ten shirts and still get free shipping. Also, because the discount is already reflected on the site, you should be able to use Busted Tees coupons on your order, which will make the shirts even cheaper: $15.98 with free shipping, to be exact.

You have until July 5th at 12pm est (noon) to take advantage of this sale and pick up some Busted Tees shirts. Busted Tees are one of the top funny t-shirt sites on the ‘Net, and print all their designs on American Apparel.

$10 Sale at Threadless Starts Today! Plus a Snorg Tees 20% Off Sale

I’ve got two awesome sales to let you guys know about today. They come from two brands that I really like: Threadless and Snorg Tees.

I never thought we would see this again due to rising cotton prices, but, Threadless has just launched one of their bread-and-butter $10 t-shirt sales. Every single t-shirt at Threadless, new and old, is on sale for only $10.00 until July 5th at 11 am est. Talk about ringing in Independence Day in style. You don’t need any coupons or anything, just head over to Threadless and get started. We’ve also got a Threadless coupons page, although I’m fairly certain Threadless has disabled all coupons during the sale. Head over to Threadless and start buying some awesome tees for only $10.00.

In addition to the awesome Threadless sale, you’ve also got a great opportunity to save some money on Snorg Tees’ awesome funny shirts. Until tomorrow (Friday, July 1st), all Snorg Tees designs are on sale for 20% off. Snorg Tees rarely has sales or coupon codes, so you have to take advantage of their discounts whenever they come. So after picking up a bunch of Threadless shirts, maybe grab some Snorg Tees stuff to round out your collection (if ‘ya want to, that is). If you like math I bet you’ll find some designs you like.

Rude But Cool T-Shirt from Sir Mitchell

We take a break from troundup’s regularly scheduled t-shirt posting to bring you an incredibly cute t-shirt. This shirt reminds me of the awesome reclaimed mini-robots available on Etsy (which I will be buying one of soon). It’s just something about quirky looking robots–so cool. It also helps that he’s got the whole Teenage Mutant Ninja thing going on too.

If you share my affinity for cool little robots such as this one, you can pick it up for $23.00 at the Sir Mitchell store. Sir Mitchell prints their t-shirts on American Apparel blanks (score!).

Greendale Human Beings T-Shirt from Snorg Tees, Community

I posted a Community t-shirt back in May, and I thought that I would continue that trend since I really do like the show. The cleverness of the writing sometimes reminds me of Arrested Development (which I’ve been on a little kick of lately).

I came across this specific design while browsing around Snorg Tees. It features Greendale Community College’s incredibly outrageous attempt at eliminating the concept of race. The mascot stems from the Dean’s overwhelming desire to be 100% politically correct, but that’s a story you’ll have to get from the show. Anyway, I think it’s a good interpretation of what a Greendale Human Beings t-shirt might look like. As far as I know, this isn’t directly licensed, so I think Snorg Tees came  up with it themselves. I enjoyed it, though if you don’t watch the show you’ve probably already stopped reading by now out of boredom.

You can pick this t-shirt up and support the Human Beings by going to Snorg Tees’ store. It will cost you $19.95 and is printed on those sweet American Apparel blanks I love so much. I’ve also got a Snorg Tees coupon page, although I think the most recent code has since become inactive. Talk with me in the comments about how much you love Community–I get bored with just having conversations in my head.

Fullbleed Season 11 Launches

Ammmmmggggg. Fullbleed Series 11 has just launched, and boy is it great. As is Fullbleed’s modus operandi, there are a ton of awesome t-shirts in this series. Rob Dobi, the man behind Fullbleed, has one of my favorite t-shirt design styles (hence why he’s been on my “favorite t-shirt companies” list since pretty much troundup’s inception). His designs are just so…elegant? I can’t find the adjectives I want, so I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Here are some of my favorite t-shirts from Fullbleed Series 11, but you should check all of them out.

In total, there are nine new t-shirts (I think I counted right). He’s also released two awesome prints. One of these prints is of Bombshell (the shirt on the bottom right), while the other is only a print. This second one, The Optimist, is a great piece of art. Definitely check it out–we can branch out a little beyond t-shirts, right? There’s a picture of it below.

Hit up the Fullbleed store to check out all the new releases. I’ve also got a Fullbleed coupon page ready to go should Rob ever release a coupon. Unfortunately, he has yet to do so. I will never lose hope, though.

States, A Limited Edition Best Coast T-Shirt from Insound

I really like this newly released Best Coast t-shirt from Insound. It’s part of the newly started Insound + Delicious Design Project, which is really cool. Insound has partnered up with Chicago based Delicious Design. Together, they will create a unique t-shirt for six of their favorite bands from 2011. These shirts will be printed on American Apparel and only released in small, one-time batches. The Best Coast shirt is the first release from this awesome partnership.

As for the shirt itself, I love it. I haven’t been to California, but I imagine that this shirt holds some truth (or a lot of truth…). California is out there being all smiley and sunny while Pennsylvania is stuck with that frowny rain. I love the East coast, but California (and the West coast as a whole), still holds a particular allure to me.

You can pick this t-shirt up for a limited time from Insound. It’s printed on American Apparel and costs $19.99. I also should be able to provide an updated Insound coupon code very soon, which will most likely be good for 10% off your order.

P.S. I saw Best Coast in Philly. She was sick but it was still a pretty good show. Her voice was amazing live.

#Abiding, A Big Lebowski T-Shirt from Cowbell Tees

I’ve posted a few other Big Lebowski t-shirts because I love the movie. I’m now happy to add this one to that list, because it is quite, quite funny. If you’re familiar with the movie, you know that one of the most well-known/repeated phrases is “The Dude Abides“. Therefore, it is quite possible that were The Dude to tweet, he would end many of them with the hashtag #Abiding. That is why this shirt is funny. It’s something that typically only fans of the movie will get, and I think that is one of the characteristics that makes a great movie t-shirt.

If you’re #abiding as well, you can pick up this design for $20CDN (Canadian Dollars? What?!?!??!) from Cowbell Tees. It’s printed on Alstyle 1301 t-shirts.

Beach House T-Shirt from Yellow Bird Project — Charity

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.
