Emptees Officially Closes

That day has finally come. The beloved T-Shirt showcase and forum, Emptees, has shut its doors. At its peak, Emptees was a great place to interact with and learn a lot from people with the same passion for T-Shirts. No matter what you thought of the site and its members (even the Indonesian ones…sorry for the inside joke), you can’t say that it wasn’t an awesome resource. Emptees will be missed.

As for alternative, you should check out Mintees (run by former Emptees moderator, Rob Dobi, who is also the founder of Fullbleed) and Band Job (created by the guys behind The Black Axe).

What is your best emptees memory, what did you love about the site?

Fullbleed Series 10

Designer Rob Dobi just released Series 10 of his Fullbleed line and I have to admit that it doesn’t disappoint. Dobi has a specific style, he does not rely on other artist for his brand, instead he relies on his own imagination and design skills to bring his concepts to life on T-Shirts. Fullbleed, which originally started as a side project of Dobi’s, has now become his full-time job. It’s easy to see why.

Series 10 consists of 10 new tees, a new hoodie and three silk-screened prints. It looks like nearly half of the T-Shirt line consists of prints on American Apparel Tri-Blend shirts. I’m a huge Tri-Blend fan so this is a welcome inclusion. The shirts are priced from $18-$20, with the hoodie priced at $40, and the prints $18.

Rob Dobi also had one of his design selected for print at the popular T-Shirt contest site, Design By Humans. Gateway is available now from Design By Humans for $19.
