I’m stopping by for a quick post to inject some goofy randomness into your life. Let’s be honest, what’s more ridiculous than a cat dressed up as Spike Lee (essentially)? This cat has to rank pretty damn high on the goof scale. Anyway, I chuckled when I saw this shirt because of how random it is, and maybe you’ll like it too. I think the “CATS” bling is what put it over the edge.
You can pick up this Upper Playground designed t-shirt for $24.00 at Digital Gravel. Enjoy!
In case you haven’t heard yet, I just wanted to stop in and let everyone know that Threadless’ 10 Buck Tony sale is now live. All their t-shirts are only $10.00 for 48 hours. All hoodies are also 20% off. Hopefully they will extend the sale, but if they don’t, you have a very limited time to get your order in. If you miss it, you’ll have to hope for a continuation of Threadless’ barrage of sales and discounts.
Keep in mind that I’m selling Threadless gift certificates for 30% off. In addition to that, I’m also giving away some Threadless gift certificates on both Twitter and Facebook, so get all social with troundup and be rewarded.
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 have some STPs floating around still, so I thought I would bring back my cheap Threadless gift certificate deal just in time for their $10 sale that starts tomorrow. I’ve lowered the prices more than usual, and you can expect to get at least 30% off, or more if you buy a bunch. So here are the prices:
- $25 gift certificate costs $17.50
- $50 gift certificate costs $35.00
- $100 gift certificate costs $65.00 (anything bigger also gets 35% off)
This is a great way to save even further on Threadless’ prices. If you want to take advantage of these super cheap gift certificates, just shoot me an email. You can also find me directly at colin [a t] troundup [d o t] com.
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.
The $10.00 sale just ended at Threadless, but that doesn’t mean you’re out of options to save money. They just relaunched their 25% off offer, which will give you a couple more weeks of discounts. This is very similar to the offer from before. Once again, the offer is tied through affiliate links–so you have to click the link to get the 25% off orders $25+. I feel the need to reiterate–this is not some elaborate scheme for me to get clicks, I’m just following the directions they gave me. So, to get the 25% discount at Threadless, here’s what you need to do by September 5th (when the discount expires).
- Click my Threadless affiliate link (or the image above) to head to the website.
- Shop in the window that opens just as you usually would. At the top of the page, you should see text saying that you’ll get 25% off at checkout.
- Check out through the process like normal and you should get that sweet, sensual feeling of a 25% discount.
- $25 gift certificate=$18.75
- $50 gift certificate=$37.50
- $100 gift certificate=$75.00
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.
