Peace Panda

I love this T-Shirt. I love the design, I love the message and I love how the black and white elements pop on top of the red T-Shirt.

I discovered Peace Panda from Concrete Rocket while checking out recent comments left on my blog. I almost always click out to the commenters website if they link to it and in this case, I clicked out, found this shirt, fell in love and decided to post! This should give you guys some incentive to leave a few comments here and there, especially if you’ve got T-Shirts that need promoting!

Peace is the only battle worth waging. ~Albert Camus

Peace Panda is available now from Concrete Rocket for $21. It is a reprint, so if you like it then be sure to pick it up sooner rather than later. I’m betting that this shirt will sell out quickly.

Johnny Cupcakes Raids Thailand Copy Cat

Vantage Eternal Shop in Bangkok, Thailand has been doing a very bad thing. They have been selling counterfeit Johnny Cupcakes goods. With the cooperation of the Thailand authorities and of course a good trademark lawyer, Mr. Cupcakes was able to have the illegal goods confiscated.

“Some say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I say that it’s the sincerest form of getting punched in the face. Or the sincerest form of asking for a field trip to court. Every day is a battle. Seriously, every day. Today we won a big one. Bangkok, Thailand. I was informed by quite a few Johnny Cupcakes customers that this store was carrying hundreds of fake Johnny Cupcakes t-shirts. We even got this person kicked off of eBay for selling fakes. Well well… their store was just raided by police, over 400 t-shirts were confiscated, and the owner was arrested. He’ll be going to court shortly.”

Of even more interest to me is the photo of the “Infringer’s Board” (see below for photo) that Johnny posted. This is a white board that features brands who have caused intellectual property damage from around the world. The list includes:

  • Urban Outfitters
  • Hot Topic
  • Billabong
  • Pastry
  • Kohls
  • Random Bakeries
  • Various Online Stores
  • Stussy (iPhone Packaging)
  • Thailand
  • Korea (Ku Sung Bum, Koo Sung Bum, Benny Frying Pan)
  • Stockhold
  • Malaysia (Padini)

There are some big names on that list.

Regan Smith Clarke X Cavata Clothing Co. Collaboration Tee

In Episode 63 of Co-Tee TV I raved about how I loved Regan Smith Clarke. His brand had a throwback style that was all his own. Since then, RSC has teamed up with fellow Bostonian, Lori Kirk of Cavata Clothing to deliver the first (of hopefully many) RSC X CAVATA Collaboration T-Shirts.

The shirt design is definitely closer in style to Regan Smith Clarke’s line than it is to Cavata. The creme colored American Apparel T-Shirt is very specific, featuring the names of both brands on the front of the tee as well as the date of release (June 2010) and the price of the T-Shirt. It will be interesting  to see how such a specific (but very well designed) shirt does with shoppers that are not hardcore RSC and/or Cavata Clothing fans.

The Regan Smith Clarke X Cavata Clothing Co. Collaboration Tee is available now at both the Regan Smith Clarke and Cavata Clothing online stores for $25. As a bonus, the first 30 orders will receive a free print of the design and free shipping. And if you need even more incentive to buy this tee, 20% of all proceeds will go to support music and art programs in public schools.

New Batch of Johnny Cupcakes Goods

Johnny Cupcakes just released a new batch of tees, and I have to say that this might be one of my favorite releases. The Warhol inspired Soup Can T-Shirt immediately caught my attention and Legalize Cupcakes once again infuses an old school illustration style that we’ve become accustomed to with Johnny Cupcakes. A plaid heavy aqua version of the classic crossbones design rounds out my favorites from this release batch.

Also of note is the Johnny Cupcakes Crossbones Umbrella. I’m in the market for a new umbrella and this just might be it.

The new tees are priced at $35.99 a piece with the new Make Cupcakes Not War colorway priced at $38.99. You can snag the fancy Johnny Cupcakes Umbrella for $29.99.

The Threadless Sketchbook

If you enjoyed the 76 Threadless Designs from Sketch To Print post then you will definitely be interested to know that the Threadless community has just released a Sketchbook containing classic Threadless designs. I say “Threadless community” because this really is a collaborative project that started with the Threadless blogging community. Here’s the full story:

It all started when MurrayMullet (Phil Jones) posted a blog on the Threadless forum, asking alumni for sketches of their printed designs. To quote the blog, “They can be just the idea, initial attempt or napkin drawings.”

The blog blew up and people were posting “like crazy and sh!t,” says speedyjvw (Joe Van Wetering). In fact, it got so bonkers, another Threadless dood, Ian Lieno thought it would be cool to compile all of this into a book, with ALL of the funds going towards Bloggerraiser. What’s Bloggerraiser? Well, for the n00bs, its an annual Threadless blogger-driven fundraiser that brings folks from all over to our annual meet-up in September, aka our Family Reunion.

The book is an amazing compilation of original sketches of over 120 Threadless shirts from 66 different artists, with the forward written by Mr. Jake Nickell himself. Pick up the book over on Lulu for $19.99. Awesome job, Ian, and thanks to all who contributed!

The Threadless Sketchbook is available in paperback form and is 120 pages long. You can purchase the Sketchbook from Lulu for $19.99.

Diary of a T-Shirt Intern: Bo Experiences Portland!

Diary of a T-Shirt Intern is a weekly column written by Bo, a T-Shirt blogger at Loving This Tee who is also affectionately known in the tee community as dunz0. Bo will be tracking her experiences as an intern at Tilteed and sharing her thoughts on the strange land that is Portland, Oregon!

Hey, readers! Some of you may know me, but chances are that most of you don’t, so let me begin with a brief introduction about myself. My name is Bo, but I’m also known as dunz0, the blogger at Loving This Tee, and b2.0 at I Am The Trend. I hail from the DC Metro Area, I recently graduated from The College of William and Mary with a degree in Psychology, I have a strong love for slushy drinks, and I have joint custody of a purple Betta fish named Gilly.

To be completely honest, I never imagined being a part of the t-shirt industry when I started out blogging at Loving This Tee. I always thought that I would only be able to stand on the sidelines and admire companies and their designs. Boy, was I wrong! Earlier this year, I was asked to be a curator at Tilteed, an offer that I couldn’t refuse. When I thought that that would be my greatest accomplishment in the t-shirt world, I was asked to fly across the country to Portland, OR to intern at Tilteed. Three weeks after graduation, that’s exactly what I did. So this is where my journey begins. I’ll be sharing with you some of my weekly activities, as well as some of my experiences outside of the print shop.

I’ve only been in Portland working at Tilteed for about a week and a half, but I’m already learning so much and having a lot of fun in the process. In my brief time in the shop, I have learned about all the steps needed for preparing screens for printing, fulfilling orders, and general website upkeep. I have already gotten a chance to try screen printing, and the first shirt that I ever printed was a Tilteed Limited design by Recycledwax called “Jackalope.” Since then, I have printed a couple of other shirts and am hoping that I get many more opportunities to develop my skills. I have a greater appreciation for the whole process now that I know all the steps that go into it.

Strangely enough, I have also found a real enjoyment in fulfilling orders. This part sounds boring, but it’s actually not bad! What’s awesome is that we keep two large maps in the office for pinning where our orders get shipped to. Although it takes me forever to locate towns and cities (I’m horrible with geography), it’s a fun part of packing orders. I hope to see a map completely covered with pins someday!

One of the main lessons that I’ve learned thus far is to treat every aspect of my work with the utmost care. From setting up screens, to printing, to packaging orders, the whole process is even more meaningful when you put in your best efforts throughout each step. There’s no concept of cutting corners here. Since I’m somewhat of a perfectionist, I love this mindset.

T-shirts aside, I’m enjoying being on the West Coast for the first time. It has been cloudy/rainy most of the time, but I do enjoy the fact that Portland weather is not anything like Virginia weather at this time of year. It has been hoody weather here, unlike the hot and humid summer days back at home. I love walking around when it feels this great outside. As a Tilteed outing, I got to go to this amazing donut shop downtown called Voodoo Doughnut. There were some amazing selections on the menu, and I had a hard time picking a pair of donuts. I ended up getting a Voodoo Doll and a Captain My Captain donut. Talk about tasty! I hope to go back again multiple times before I leave this beautiful city.

So, that’s my recap of my first 10 days interning at Tilteed. I’ll be doing a new write-up on a weekly basis, so keep your eyes peeled for an inside scoop on working at a t-shirt company. I hope that you have enjoyed reading my account and flipping through the photos! If there’s anything in particular that you would like for me to touch on, I’ll be happy to take your suggestions.

Please check out Tilteed if you aren’t familiar with our site. We feature a new design every 72 hours (curated pieces and a monthly contest winner), so you’ll be sure to come across something to your liking!

Cultbook: 400 Million Users and Growing

When I first joined Facebook I felt as if I was part of the cool culture of educated geeks who seemed to agree with my sentiments that the bigger and more established Myspace sucked ass. When I first signed up for Facebook, I was happy to see that the little teeny boppers were gone, as were the annoying background flashing GIF’s. There was no music that instantly streamed every time you loaded a new page – thank goodness! The Facebook interface was clean, easy on the eyes and a pleasure to navigate. You needed a .edu email address to register. There was a time when Facebook felt exclusive.

Those days are gone.

NerdyShirts sums things up succinctly by characterizing Facebook as Cultbook. With 400 million users and growing, including those teeny boppers that I so happily left behind when I abandoned Myspace, Facebook is turning into the modern day MySpace. Facebook is no longer exclusive. Facebook is Cultbook, 400 million users strong and growing.

Cultbook is available now from NerdyShirts for $14.95 ($5 off this week only).


And for you Facebook loyalist, be sure to get the You Like This tee, also from NerdyShirts for $19.95.
