Plug for fun t-shirts [Jun. 19th, 2008|10:16 am]
I really wish that people would print their t-shirts themselves, because I really, really refuse to pay $18/$22 dollars for a t-shirt when I know what it costs to get them printed. I wouldn't mind if the $13 went to the artist, but I know that damn near all of that goes to the on-line, on-demand printing company. Sure, it saves the artist a lot of trouble...but still...it makes it that much easier for me to say "oh, hell, no, I'm not paying that much for a damn t-shirt" especially having grown up as the daughter of a liquor distributor, clothed in free promotional t-shirts for years and years. Of course, they said things like "Have a Harvey Wallbanger" and "Montezuma's Horny Bull" and "Mount Gay Rum" and "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts"...all of which made me a freak in middle school, but enormously popular in high school and I wish to HELL I'd set some of those shirts aside, because now they'd be cool!

Nonetheless, this artist as very cool shirts and while done by an online, on demand printer, they're on sale and I may just be tempted enough...


My only concern is that several of them...I don't get. Which is either a sign of age, uncoolness or obscure references on the artist's part.

I print my own t-shirts when I have the materials... but then I also printed all of the Fight School T-Shirts we sold last year. And will print all the T-shirts that we will sell this year as well.

It's really easy and not that expensive. I suggest everyone try to make screen printed shirts at some point.
