So, I’ve had a Facebook page percolating for a few months now. You may have noticed that it’s been on the sidebar for some time, but I have yet to mention it in a blog post. Well, now is that time. I’m finally coming out with troundup’s official Facebook page. To celebrate this launch, I want to give you the first opportunity (of many) to win some free shirts. Just become a fan of troundup on Facebook and you’ll be entered to win the free shirt, with free shipping (in the US). That’s all you have to do. So, here’s a tl;dr for y’all.
- Troundup has an official Facebook page
- I am officially launching that Facebook page
- If you become a fan, you will be entered to win a free Design by Humans shirt
I will pick the winner randomly from all fans of the troundup page on Monday, 6/13.
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted an actual t-shirt from Threadless, but this one was just so quirkily hilarious that I had to post it. This shirt, entitled Retold with Unicorns, quite obviously features two unicorns fighting out the Star Wars storyline with horn-lightsabers. I am unsure where the inspiration for this t-shirt came from, but I will say that I am glad RicoMambo and Threadless were able to get this printed. It’s just straight up ridiculous (in a good way). Also, if you look at the design in detail, the Darth Vader styling on the black unicorn is hilarious.
If you also find this shirt oddly enticing, you can pick it up for only $15.00 from Threadless. We’ve also got a Threadless coupon page, although I don’t think any of them are active at the time of this posting. Furthermore, Threadless is currently running a promotion where, if you rate 100 designs, they will donate $1.00 to Unicef. So basically, you can go check out awesome, potential Threadless designs, and also help out people in need. That’s a winning combination right there. Go score some designs–100 doesn’t really take that long at all.
I think I’ve expressed my love for Insound’s awesome collection of band t-shirts in the past. They sell a selection of great designs from some really great bands. As such, I wanted to notify you about two new developments in the area of Insound’s music t-shirts. First, Insound has just released a great new batch of shirts, including designs for bands like Fleet Foxes, Mumford and Sons, Passion Pit, The National, Daft Punk, Dinosaur J.R., and a bunch of other awesome bands.
In case these new releases aren’t cool enough by themselves (which they are), Insound is also offering 20% off all the new t-shirt designs for a limited time. With the discount, the designs only cost $15.99 (although there are two exceptions). I think that’s a pretty attractive price for some awesome band shirts. Head over to Insound’s new release page to see all the designs. We’ve also got an Insound promo code which I think is still good for an additional 10% off.
P.S. I give so much love to band shirts because I like supporting the bands. It’s my little way of combining my love of graphic t-shirts with my desire to support the bands that I enjoy on a regular basis.
If you’ve read my blog for a decent amount of time, you probably know that I am a huge Arrested Development fan. As such, when a t-shirt company that I already really like makes an Arrested Development shirt, I, well, get a little giddy. This shirt, Bluth Family Crest, from 604 Republic caused such giddiness in me.
This shirt is just a treasure trove of little references that Arrested Development fans will love. The chicken, the bananas, the hook, and so much more are all there. It’s just a great shirt, and it does Arrested Development, one of the best written (and just best) TV shows, justice.
P.S. Cross your fingers and pray that the Arrested Development movie really does happen, and, more importantly, that it maintains the incredible quality of the show.
This new release from Lola Camisetas elicited a slight chuckle from me upon my opening of the email. It is a very alternative take on the Batman series’ Joker. I have to say though, this panda isn’t quite as scary. He’s like the goofy version of the Joker. Am I wrong to naturally associate goofiness with pandas? That’s just how I view them.
Anyway, I like this shirt. It’s quirky and goofy–two qualities I find attractive in t-shirts. You can pick it up on sale for 13.95 Euros from the Lola Camisetas store. I think the discounted price is only good for the next week.
So…I just saw Hangover 2 last night. I thought it was pretty dang funny, especially the first half. I don’t think it’s quite as good as the first one–but still, very funny. I appreciate how they were brash and unabashed about the sequel following the exact same format as the first Hangover. This early acceptance allowed me to just sit back and enjoy the show. It’s the same formula, but it’s a good formula, and it’s funny, so I’m a fan.
When watching the movie, my friends and I immediately laughed when we saw Allen’s (Zach Galifianakis’) t-shirt. You can imagine how happy I was to get home, check my email, and see that someone was already selling Allen’s t-shirt. It’s just a ridiculous shirt, especially when worn by Zach (see above). These are one of my favorite type of movie shirts–shirts that aren’t just a logo, but rather come directly from the movie.
To sum up–The Hangover 2 was funny. Allen’s shirt from the Hangover 2 was also funny. This, entitled Yellow Lab, is that shirt. You can pick this shirt up for $18.99 at Crazy Dog T-Shirts. We also have an exclusive Crazy Dog T-Shirts coupon that will get you $5.00 off your order, making this bad boy only $13.99. I would recommend using that if you like saving money.
If you’re feeling talkative, let me know your thoughts on The Hangover 2 in the handy dandy comments below. If you haven’t seen it, I think it’s definitely worth the $8/2 hours required to check it out.
Ok, I know this technically isn’t a t-shirt, but…this raglan is just so damn cool that I had to post it anyway (plus…there’s a t-shirt version, so it kind of counts). I’ve posted about Out of Print Clothing before–in fact, I’ve even posted about the t-shirt version of this shirt. As you can probably tell from my previous posts, I really like what Out of Print is doing. Essentially, they take great classic novels and t-shirt’ize them. Yes, this is the official term–t-shirt’ize. They make them into awesome t-shirts for the world to enjoy. It’s a great concept, and they do it exceptionally well.
This specific design, which is one of my favorites from them, is, quite obviously, J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye. I know this design is basically just the book’s cover, but boy does it look great. It’s the little things of how they transferred this design from book to shirt that make it so great. Out of Print didn’t have to make major changes, but the little changes that they did make are just what was needed.
I may be rambling a little at this point due to not getting a ton of sleep, so I think I’m going to end it here. You can pick up this awesome Salinger raglan for $38.00 at Out of Print Clothing, or you can grab the white t-shirt version for $28.00. Expect more from Out of Print Clothing in the future, because I really dig their stuff.
Even though Threadless just had one of their big sales, they just released a pretty big coupon today. After getting enough fans to show some love on Twitter, they released the coupon early, so you’ve got an extra day to get your shopping in. The code, which expires on Monday (5/30) is good for 25% off all orders $25.00+. $25 is a key number because it means that in most cases you’ve got to purchase at least two shirts to get the discount. Still, two Threadless shirts are a helluva lot better than one in my opinion, so I don’t think that’s much of an issue. I’ve added the code to the Threadless coupon page, which I do my best to always keep updated with working coupons (whenever possible that is).
I know I’ve been writing more about t-shirt sales/coupons lately, but that’s just because I’ve been a little busy, and, more importantly, there have been a ton of great deals for companies that I like. Posting about actual shirts will resume very soon.
