I don’t play a lot of video games anymore (I used to), but one that I will still break out occasionally is Defense of the Ancients (DotA). On a whim yesterday, I decided to see if there were any DotA shirts out there. Unsurprisingly (the game, or I guess mod? has a huge following), I found that there tons out there. So, if by chance you play DotA like me, you might want to check these out.
There’s a bunch (I mean TONS) more at Shirts of the Ancients. However, the guy is on vacation for now, so you’ll have to wait until he gets back to order.
I don’t participate in voting at Design by Humans a lot, but this is one shirt I actually saw (and voted for) during one of the scarce times I do. I’m glad to see it got printed. If you can’t see in the pictures, the front of the shirt has a bunch of Star Wars characters saying things such as “I love war”. Then on the back you have a person (is that Bush? I can’t tell) saying “I like Movie$”. This one will run you $24 at Design by Humans.
Remember the Design by Humans coupon code.
Since my post of the top 5 Barack Obama t-shirts, I received a couple emails with shirts that I overlooked. I liked two of the shirts I got sent, so I figured I should make an addendum and add them to the list. So with these two shirts, you’re actually getting the top 7 Barack Obama t-shirts. Enjoy.
This one comes from Philadelphia based Print Liberation. It’s simple, but thats not always a bad thing. Plus, it appears to be printed on an American Apparel tri-blend shirt, which is an excellent choice. Check this one out at Print Liberation.
This one, an obvious play on Rock the Vote, comes from Local Celebrity. Nice use of the check mark as the V. Also, Local Celebrity shirts are super soft. I recommend you check out the rest of their tees as well. You can pick up this Obama tee at Local Celebrity.
Usually Threadless only releases shirts on Monday. However, it seems that this week is a bonus, as we get nine “Foolishly under-scored and over-looked” shirts for $15 each. Also, it looks like they’re clearing out their stock of shirts printed on Fruit of the Loom. You can pick these old shirts up for only $5.
Remember to use a Threadless coupon code.
The Pennsylvania primary is right around the corner, and this year it actually means something, so we’re seeing tons of political ads everywhere. Hence, I thought it would be appropriate to take this time to make a list of the best Obama (he’s who I’m leaning towards right now) shirts out there. The goal of this is to find political shirts that don’t…suck. So, hopefully you enjoy. In no particular order…
We’ll start off with this one from American Pig Brand, whose goal with this design was to create a good looking, urban Obama shirt. I think they succeeded. It costs $24.99 and is printed on American Apparel.
This one takes a little more humorous route, while still still being a good design. It costs $17.99 and is printed on American Apparel. For every shirt bought $1 is donated to the Obama campaign.
This is another one from American Pig Brand. To be honest, they probably have the best Obama shirts out there. Again, this one will run you $24.99 and is printed on American Apparel.
This one is simple, but nonetheless an excellent design. The blue spatter takes it from being boring to good looking. The cost on this one varies depending on what type of shirt you get it printed on.
Lastly, no list of Obama shirts would be complete without the “Barak Obama is my Homeboy” shirt. This one seems to be very popular. I like it, i just prefer the American Pig Brand designs above. This one also varies depending on configuration.
Ogi says, “I layered drawings and scribbles. Happy deaths?” Huh?
I like the layers of drawing and scribbles – it makes for a cool shirt and some extra scary ghosts (not entirely). The sketch’y style is perfect for this design. I believe Poketo! prints on American Apparel shirts. This one comes on navy and will cost you $28. Check it out at Poketo! Apparel.
Also, this isn’t a t-shirt, but I noticed they have an excellent selection of wallets. So if you’re looking for a new wallet, check out their wallet section – you won’t be dissapointed (at least I wasn’t).
Inkbath just recently became an advertiser on my site, so I thought I would help support them by throwing up this post of their Big Foot t-shirt. It’s just a tad on the quirky side, but I view that as a good thing. Check it out at Inkbath.
T-shirt Monster was created with the goal of giving designers the ability to sell their shirts without having to stock inventory. However, despite being an on-demand printer, they also focus on quality (which is something I’ve seen some other sites lacking in). From their site:
As an on-demand T-shirt printer, we take printing seriously. Each and every T-Shirt we print is done with the utmost care, hand folded and quality inspected before being shipped to your door.
The cool thing is they also feature a (high paying) design competition. Their competition runs monthly, with the design being chosen by the community (ala Threadless and Design by Humans). The prizes are $1,000 cash, a $500 gift certificate, and $2 every time one of your shirts is sold. The design is also placed in their hall of fame, which can boost your sales, and subsequently royalties. This months contest is set to end March 31st, so it may be too late. However, theres always the contest for April.
I just thought it was interesting how they’ve kind of made a hybrid between being an on-demand printer and having a design competition. Maybe it’s been done, but this is the first time I’ve seen it, so it caught my eye. Be sure to check them out at T-Shirt Monster.
Oh, and check out this design too
I’m usually not up late enough to post about Shirt.Woot tees in time for people to actually buy them. But, today I didn’t feel like going to sleep, so you all get to benefit. This quirky, spring themed shirt is the 2nd place shirt from this weekends Derby and it’s only $10 with free shipping (and printed on American Apparel). Check it out at Shirt.Woot.
Beautiful/Decay has a great collection of tees. I believe most of them come from other designers (this one is by To Die For), but they only pick the best of the bunch. This one is kind of morbid, but I definitely like it. I think it would also look great as some type of wall art. This one costs $29.95 and can be bought at Beautiful/Decay.
