Local Celebrity has dropped the prices on all their political shirts from $25 to $14 in anticipation of the election. I’m not sure how long the sale goes on, so if you want to gear up with some super soft Local Celebrity shirts I wouldn’t wait.
I’ve also created a Local Celebrity coupon site to keep the savings rolling.
I’ve never seen anything like this. I’m not sure what practical purpose this could ever serve, but it’s an interesting concept, and it definitely fits with the whole “Take off your clothes” concept. It’s currently sold out, but if you’re desiring one, you can always hope it gets restocked.
I’m not Sarah Palin’s biggest fan, so naturally both of these gave me a chuckle. They’re both from quality companies I like too, not cafepress stuff.
The first is from Vintage Vantage.
For all the Joe Sixpacks out there. Faded print on a buttery soft grey tee. Priority shipping takes 2-3 days, plenty of time to scoop one up before the election. Also, $1 from each t-shirt sale will be donated to Planned Parenthood on behalf of Sarah Palin!
Walkie Talkies sent me this tee a couple of weeks ago to review (I can be kind of slow sometimes). They let me pick out the design, so I obviously like it. I figure I’m unique, so I may as well trademark myself.
Walkie Talkies prints their designs on American Apparel shirts. They screen-print their designs, which equals a soft, non-annoying print. I can attest to this from wearing the physical shirt, the quality is great.
Back in 2003, Walkie Talkie founder Loren Klein, a graphic design sophomore attending the Rhode Island School of Design, was hawking the now infamous Bull Shirt on the street to students passing by. Today, Walkie Talkie is using that same sense of humor to come up with even funnier designs and connect with more people on the web.
Definitely check out the rest of their shirts. Loren has a great sense of humor, and that really comes through in all his designs.
PS. Congrats to aeric, who won the Black Hole Sun t-shirt from DBH.
I can’t stand black shirts (I get really hot in them if there’s any sun/light around), but these two from Imaginary Foundation almost make me forget about that – especially the second one. Maybe someday they’ll print these on dark blue or something (hint hint), but until then, I urge all you people who don’t dislike black shirts to pick these up. They’re $30 each at Imaginary Foundation.
Fed up with the economy? Give it the big F You with this shirt from Print Liberation. It could also be interpreted as the economy getting an F grade, but I prefer to go with the former interpretation. Print Liberation has some awesome text tees, and are coming out with a lot of political tees due to the coming election. If you support Obama, you’ll probably like them, if you don’t, they probably won’t be your thing (unless you think Palin is an alien).
With an unconditional love for typography, design, logos, screen printing and creative direction, Print Liberation works hard everyday to make smart and effective design for the world and its people.
It’ll run you $15 and is printed on American Apparel.
Busted Tees just came out with some voting themed shirts by Someecards (they take the old pictures and put the words for those who don’t know). They’re some pretty cool shirts, with the top two above being my favorites. I just wish they had used some color variation, all the gray get’s a little annoying.
Also, they’re having a Recession Special, where all shirts are only $15.99 for a limited time. You can take that down another 10% with a Busted Tees coupon.
Etsy houses a plethora of awesome t-shirts, it just sometimes takes awhile to wade through the muck. I was bored last night, so I went through 47 pages of their t-shirts (I only did t-shirts tagged “text”). It took me a decent amount of time, but I did come across this gem, as well as a few others. I’m loving the picture they chose, as well as the pun. Pick it up for $19 + $4.60 shipping at Etsy.
Vintage Vantage was kind enough to send me three of their awesome shirts to check out. Just like my earlier review, I was again blown away by the awesomeness of the shirts. Here are some some shots of the shirts I snagged:
Probably my favorite text tee ever. I think the line is genius.
Who needs drugs when you have yourself?
This shirt made me lol. On the front is the tiger, and on the back (not pictured) it has the text, “I’m Right Behind You”. Of course, if someone is reading the text on the back of your shirt, theres no way you could be behind them.
As usual, the shirts are incredibly soft. I wish I knew where they got their Vintagesoft fabric, so I could buy it in bulk, and maybe use it as sheets on my bed. The prints are super soft too, you won’t even notice they’re there.
They’ve also released a new site, complete with a blog. They appear to be adding new shirts at a more rapid pace than before, and every week they’re discounting one of their shirts down to $12.50 (you get to vote to decide which one). All of these things are awesome things, I think they’re a great company and will continue to grow.
I just wish they would stop having sales on their blanks (not actually), they’re taking all my money. Check out their blanks section to pick up super Vintagesoft ringers for $2.50 and hoodies for $20.
So, check out Vintage Vantage and buy some shirts, you won’t regret it. I’d venture to say they’re my favorite company out there right now. I even set up a special Vintage Vantage coupon page to house up-to-date coupons for them. Right now you can save 21%.
I was looking around Bigcartel for new tees when I came across this one. I think it’s a sweet design, but I especially like the motivation the artist had for creating the shirt. Here’s the background in his own words:
I was asking my friends one day what I should design next, and a couple of my friends suggested I draw some red and yellow elephants.
I don’t think this what they had in mind, but I couldn’t think of a better way to make a bad ass bull elephant then to make it look like it was angry, red and big.
