Civil War Cannon Tee from Emperial Nation

canontee-blackandgoldcanontee1

A t-shirt company whose slogan is “clothing inspired by history” is a company after my own heart, because history is a pretty awesome thing. Plus, I used to be really into the Civil War, so this tee is somewhat of a double winner. It’s also a really cool design, so that helps too I guess (pfff, who cares about designs?). I’m diggin’ the foil and hot pink outline on the cannon, it somewhat of an interesting take on a machine made to destroy things.

If you want to add this one to your closet it will hit your wallet for $39.00. Check out their other tees as well for some more historical awesomeness.

25% Off All Design by Humans Shirts

designedbyhumanslogo_011.jpg

Through running troundup, I’ve managed to accumulate a large chunk of DBH Dollars. Given that I’m about to head off to college and Lollapalooza (and I just came back from Europe), I could use a little spending cash, so giving them away completely gratis is out of the option. But, I think I have a way where we can both come out ahead. If you’re thinking of buying some Design by Humans shirts, just shoot me an email–I’ll buy the shirts for you, and you just pay me 75% of the retail price (25% off!) + the cost of shipping. Buy 5+ shirts and I’ll pay for your shipping, assuming you’re in the US.

Also, this has come up a few times in the past, but I can’t use coupons when I buy with DBH dollars, so you can’t get the additional 10% or whatever from coupons. Sorry, I wish it were otherwise, because then things would rock even more.

If you’re interested just go to my contact me page, where you can find a contact form as well as my email if you want to just email me directly. You can also just leave a comment on this page.

So again, you pay me for the shirts, less the 25% discount. I then use my accumulation of DBH dollars to place the order at Design by Humans and have it shipped directly to you.

Want to Start Your Own Clothing Line? Troundup is Teaming Up to Give Away a Free Copy of Fuel for Design

Gino Orlandi was kind enough to team up with me to give away a free copy of his eBook, Fuel for Design. I wrote a little about the eBook over at this post, but in a short summary, it basically gives you a detailed and complete overview of the entire process of designing, printing, marketing and selling t-shirts. So if you’re thinking of starting your own clothing line, or are even remotely interested in the concept (it’s free, so you might as well), I’d definitely check this out. Free is a pretty good deal over the usual $37.

Here are the details for the contest, straight from Gino himself:

20/20 Sale Over at Goodie Two Sleeves

Goodie-two-sleeves-sale

I feel like it’s kind of pointless for me to write anything after the very informative graphic above. Maybe I’ll just throw out some random words: banana, slinky, muskrat, otter. If someone makes a t-shirt combining those four elements, I’ll be sure to buy it. If you’re still reading, check out the sale over at Goodie Two Sleeves, or just click the huge picture.

Jimi Hendrix T-Shirts from Local Celebrity

jimi-hendrix-shirtjimi-hendrix-shirt2

Local Celebrity just recently released some pretty shweet Jimi Hendrix designs. I found it to be somewhat out of their usual style, but I’m very glad that they did it, given the aforementioned shweetness of the shirts. Out of my two favorites above, I think the Voodoo Child is my definitive first place winner. You can pick these two designs, and a third Purple Haze design, up at Local Celebrity. Also check out the Local Celebrity coupon page to see if they’ve released any in the future (I don’t think they have any coupons right now though).

I’m hoping to pick up Jimi Hendrix vinyls sometime soon as well–I figure they should be pretty awesome when I eventually find the means to play them.

Bomb Drop from ReThink Clothing

Ok, so I might have lied about having an Internet connection while I was in Ohio. Now I’m back for good though (or at least for the next 3 weeks for sure), so hopefully there will be a good stretch of uninterrupted posting.

Today’s shirt is Bomb Drop from the ever cool and supportive (they’re an advertiser!) ReThink Clothing. It’s a pretty slick looking release. I’ll let them give it a quick description in their own words:

bomb,bomb,bomb, bomb,bom babomb.
Ok, it may be more than that. A bomb unraveling in the clouds might symbolize peace and disarmament to some and GOOD. That is the great thing about this shirt to some its a symbol of peace and hope, to others it looks flipping cool!

I’d say they’re fairly accurate. You can pick it up for $19.99 at their site. I think you can also use the code TROUNDUP for 20% off your order, so hopefully that’s helpful. They print on American Apparel.

Relentlessly Awesome from Headline Shirts

arelentlessly_awesome_2_443arelentlessly_awesome_2_4432

I’m officially back from Europe, which was a whirlwind and exhausting ride, but still very fun. I’m still catching up on things–I’ve pruned my inbox down to 833 unread emails, but that’s still a lot to go through, so it may take some time for me to email people back (if you’ve emailed me).

I decided to make my first post back in the states this cool type tee from the ever cool Headline Shirts. I like the simplicity of it, as well as the slogan (ignoring any insinuations of arrogance). I think part of why I like it is that the words (letters) just plain look cool how they are printed, and relentlessly is a cool word in my opinion. It’ll run you $24 over at Headline Shirts.

Please bear with me as I try to get back into the swing of things–it may take awhile, especially because I leave again tomorrow for 5 days, although I should have access to a computer for this one.

It’s good to be back, and I hope you guys are still reading!

Gone to Europe for Two Weeks

I’ll be out of the country for the next two weeks as I’m going on a little trip throughout Europe. I’ll be back June 22nd, and expect the posting to resume somewhat after that. For now, goodbye everyone!

Government Motors Tee from Despair, Inc.

governmentmotors

Who else is excited about the government getting involved in GM? I know I am! I’m diggin this shirt from Despair, Inc. on the basis of solid design and excellent wit. The font and hammer/sickle is just perfect. It will run you $19.95 at Despair, Inc.

PS. Sorry for the slowness of posts lately, unfortunately, it probably won’t get much better, as I’m leaving for Europe for two weeks on Monday, and don’t see myself posting much while I’m there. I’ll be back after that though!

The Chapter 12 Tee from Paper Root Clothing

paperrootclothing1paperrootclothing21

Here’s a shirt from a company, Paper Back Clothing, that I’ve never written about before. I came upon them through Rumplo, and I’m really glad I did, because they’ve got some sick designs going on over there. There are a bunch I like–I just decided to write about this one because it was one of my top favorites. I love the blue and green color scheme on it, as well as the geometry and idea behind the shirt, which, quoting them, is “Infinite space…. need i say more?”.

Pick this one up from Paper Root Clothing for $23.00 on an American Apparel shirt.
