The Oh Snap Project is a new store/line from the people behind No Star Clothing. As you may be able to guess from the shirt/brand name, the theme of The Oh Snap Project is to put photographs, and photographs only, on their shirts. Here’s a bit more about the project:
Oh, Snap! started as a fun side project, by one of the founders of No Star Clothing in December of 2008. While sharing photos with friends during the holidays, he realized how the availability of affordable, high quality digital cameras was allowing amateur photographers to compile large collections of good, interesting photos and that these some of the images would be pretty cool on tees. He had his friends and friends of friends (some of whom happened to be professionals) submit their favorite photos and compiled the first season of Oh, Snap!, titled Vol. 1.
Oh, Snap! is excited to offer amateur and professional photographers a new platform to share their work and is continually seeking out interesting photos for the line.
I think it’s a great idea–as long as they keep the selection to only quality photographs, which they seem to be doing so far. This shirt is one of the photographs I really liked. Prices are a little heavy, coming in at $30, but it might be something to splurge on every once in awhile. Check it out! You can also save 20% by using this code: NOTROUND. This code is good on any of No Star Clothing’s brands.
Because I could really use some spending cash, for a limited time only I will be selling Threadless gift certificates for 30% off and Design by Humans shirts for 30% off as well. Also, for the Design by Humans shirts, if you order 5+ I’ll give you free shipping as well (US only). If you’re interested, either email me at crn001 (^at^] gmail (*dot$) com or head over to the contact me page. More details below:
Here would be the price for Threadless gift certificates (again, this price is only good for a limited time–it’s usually only 25% off):
$100 gift certificate becomes $70.00
$50 gift certificate becomes $35.00
$25 gift certificate becomes $17.50
For the Design by Humans shirts, just email me the shirts you’d like and where they’re being shipped and I’ll quote you a price.
Those are some good deals!
I came up with an alternate name for this shirt: “How to make an awesome looking shirt with just the letter V”.
Seriously, the shirt is so simple, yet so appealing (at least to me). I’m incredibly impressed with how they can use geometry or other very simple shapes to create such amazing designs, especially considering most of their designs are just white + one color (usually black).
The only problem is the price. The shirts are 29 pounds, which is expensive already. Throw in the exchange rate though, and these are out of reach for most people (including me). But oh well, we can just stare and enjoy.
In honor of the Lost premiere, and my roommate (who loves Lost), here are six shirts (for six seasons of Lost!)* in no specific order. Enjoy, and watch Lost on February 2nd if you’re so inclined.
Desmond is my Constant from Busted Tees
Dharma Initiative Logo from ABC
Drive Shaft shirt from Busted Tees. Does anyone else wonder how Drive Shaft got even close to popularity? I certainly do.
Oceanic Airlines shirt from Wear Power. Also known as, “the airline you never want to fly with, because it gets you lost on a random island with people that like to kill you”.
I wanna get lost with Sawyer shirt found here. You can pick any lost character to get lost with, I just chose Sawyer because he’s BA.
Lost Numbers found here. Never play the lottery with the numbers 4 8 15 16 23 42.
And finally, to end with another Busted Tees shirt which works as a good conclusion…
Found from Busted Tees.
I hope you enjoyed the list, and that everyone who watches Lost enjoys the premiere and entire final season. I confess I’m not a huge fan–I got midway through season 2 before I quit–but it’s still amazing how much of a phenomenon the show has become.
*I updated it to seven shirts after publishing the post. However, there are not seven seasons of Lost. So instead of ruining my connection to the number of seasons, I just made this footnote.
The NerdyShirts contest ends today (Sunday) at 11pm est. If you want to win one of five shirts, then you just need to do one (or both) of the following:

It’s so painfully easy to enter that there really is no reason not to!
I hesitated posting this, because I think the last thing J.D. Salinger was interested in was publicity of any kind. Yet…I love his works, and it is sad that he passed away. I started his story, Raise High the Roofbeams, Carpenters, on the exact night that he died (before I knew), which is a little strange. Maybe that’s fitting though. To sum it up: R.I.P. J.D. Salinger–you were a damn good writer.
Hopefully it doesn’t get on anyone’s nerves that I sometimes just use shirts as a way to talk about things I care about which would otherwise have no reason to be on a t-shirt blog.
Together we can make it a GOOD WORLD.
A good message and awesome type makes this tee a winner. It’s also printed on an American Apparel tri-blend blank, which is the most comfortable shirt ever. The athletic gray also makes a really good backdrop for type tees, especially from Print Liberation (who consistently make some damn cool type tees).
You can pick this up for $22.00 at Print Liberation.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is my current favorite TV show. It could never usurp Arrested Development as my favorite show ever, but it ain’t far behind. The show is essentially about a group of five Philadelphians (including Danny DeVito), who are incredibly self-centered and just horrible people in general, having various adventures. Hilarity ensues. If you’re easily offended you probably won’t like the show. If you have a sense of humor, and actually understand that when the characters are being insensitive to various groups they’re not supporting insensitivity (in fact, they’re doing quite the opposite), then you’ll probably love the show.
As for the shirt, I think it’s pretty self-explanatory. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
