In this episode I wear and review Awesome from Quixotic Clothing and review a tee called Through The Glass that was designed by Grant Tucker for Full Metal T-Shirt. Earn $200 for each winning design and $5 in residuals for each shirt sold at Full Metal T-Shirt.
This week I continue my summer long series on Ongoing T-Shirt Contest Sites. Every week, I will be reviewing a different tee from one of many different online contest sites. I’ll be discussing how each of these sites differ, how the submission and selection process work and what your rights are as a designer. So far I’ve covered ShirtFight and A Better Tomorrow so be sure to check those past episodes if Â you haven’t yet.
Through The Glass by Grant Tucker and available at Full Metal T-Shirt. Good: Excellent packaging, T-Shirts come neatly packed in a clear custom package. FMT definitely pays special attention to detail, shirts come with custom hangtags, special washing instructions and pins. Shirts are printed on Alstyle AAA blanks and are a bit longer than the typical American Apparel tee. Shirt is preshrunk so the size you order is the size you will have even after the first wash. Direct-To-Garment print allows for amazing gradient fades on this black teeÂ Bad: Not tagless,Â Direct-To-Garment is not the softest print I’ve felt but is not the heaviest – it’s somewhere in between and despite it leavingÂ a smooth texture over the shirt the possibilities available with DTG definitely outweighs this. I would definitely pick up another DTG printed tee!Â Price: $29
Awesome by Quixotic Clothing. Good: Printed on a dark gray American Apparel blank, comes shipped with a collection of 1 inch Quixotic pins. Extremely cheap at just $5. Very fun design, perfect tee for anyone that loves to smile and makes others laugh!Â Bad: It’s low in stock (only medium and X-Large available). This is one of those straightforward fun tees, nothing wrong with it.Â Price: $5.00.
