This week I also start the 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. This week we kick things off with ShirtFight!
You Might Need More Than A Nightlight This TimeÂ by Evanimal.Good:Â Nice custom packaging and T-Shirts are individually packaged. This is the first ever winning tee at ShirtFight and so it makes a nice collectors item. Printed on an American Apparel tee so you know I like the fit, 5 color soft print, orders come with a ShirtFight thumb wrestling kit.Â Bad:Â I wish they went tagless.Â Price: $18.00.
Exploded 128Â by Garry Booth.Â Fun shirt for any Mac fanboy (like myself)! I’d wear this tee with pride any day. Love the colorway and it’s printed on a American Apparel tee so you know that I dig that!Â Price: $18.00.
Congratulations to Evanimal for winning the first ShirtFight with his entry, You Might Need More Than A NightLight This Time! Evanimal took home the $2009 prize and you can pick up his design for just 15 bucks. I have to admit that I am huge fan of ShirtFight’s product shots -- love them!Â
Check out the official announcement in the video below and find out what this weeks new Shirt Fight theme is (hint: it has to with ANIMALS and PEOPLE)!
What?! Talk about comic book geekery awesomeness! This great piece of Batman fan art is available now in T-Shirt form at TeeFury for just 9 bucks. MJ from compete-tee-tion curated this piece by Evanimal and I’m thankful he did because I made it my first TeeFury purchase! Yeah, yeah, I know what you’re saying -- I’m the T-Shirt guy and this is my first TeeFury purchase! Well, in my defense, it was only recently that TeeFury offered shipping to to Hawaii -- and I’m happy they did!Â
“Admit it, when you watched the Batman tv show you were totally rooting for the villains. While Adam West was kind of a one-dimensional cornball who seems to survive from one episode to the next purely by chance, evil-doers like The Black Widow, The Joker, and Catwoman knuckled down and made elaborate plans for changing their own lives for the better. If nothing else, you have to respect their work ethic- these guys never stopped, even after it should have been clear that the deck was stacked against them in Gotham City. Maybe the best part of this shirt is that looking at it, bad as things seem, I just know the tables were turned five minutes into the next episode and Batman survived to see another day.” -MJ
