They’ve got some amazing tees, so the sale is definitely worth checking out. See below for a few of my RANDR favorites!
Very cool. A must watch for fans of Johnny Cupcakes (and Ashton Kutcher), T-Shirt enthusiasts and ice cream lovers.
“I thought it would be rad to treat all of my customers to ice cream sandwiches if they showed up with their Johnny Cupcakes t-shirt on. 300+ Johnny Cupcakers showed up & boy did we eat a lot.” -- Johnny Cupcakes
Okay, I’ve said in the past that I am a hug fan of Glenn Jones but the only tees that I own of his are those that were available at Threadless. I think Rocket Science is the breaking point for me. I need this shirt. It’s filled with all kinds of amazingness that I must have it. Glenn, how do you do it? How do you come up with these genius ideas? I want your frontal lobe.
Rocket Science is printed on a black American Apparel blank and is available now from Glennz Tees for $19.95.
If you live in the United States and love looking at A Better Tomorrow tees instead of wearing them because of the rate differences then this is the perfect time to pick up that tee you’ve been drooling for! A Better Tomorrow is having a Summer Sale and all shirts have been dropped to 22,00 â‚¬ and you even score free shipping (if you live in Europe). Pretty sweet, huh!
I love ice cream! My favorite? Probably either Rocky Road or Jamoca Almond Fudge from Baskin-Robins. This shirt from Boston based Brivia Sky is the perfect shirt for the ice cream fan! The colors kind of remind me of Rainbow Sherbet. You can pick up this tee from Brivia Sky for $40. What’s you favorite flavor of ice cream?

God, I envy that camel. Nice black shades for eye protection (very important) and a cold orange creamsicle on a hot day. What cold be better! I think this camel just inspired me to go to the beach over the weekend (the perks of living in Hawaii).Â
Congratulations toÂ tobiasfonseca for submitting the Ultimate Summer T-Shirt and winning last weeks ShirtFight. If you dig thisÂ 2 color super duper soft Plastisol Ink on creme American Apparel Tee ten pick one up not for the sale price of $13.Â
Another week and another set of slogans for my epic TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment.Â I am starting to feel some fatigue but I will not let it get to me. I will push on until ThreadlessÂ Gods deems me worthy of a print – boing! To see all of my slogans and to vote for them check out my Threadless profile page. Vote for me and I will make bake you a cake if ever we meet in real life.
No real story behind this one, I think I had something I previously planned to submit but then at the last minute I thought of this one. Yes, that’s right.
Indeed I do make great animal sounds. Ask anyone in my family. I make very very very good animal sounds. I specialize mainly in house pets but can do some darn good farm animals.
This I got after I saw someone on Twitter (sorry I can’t remember who) say that their girlfriend said the most genius thing, that she loved the hypotenuse of her sandwich. I thought that was brilliant.
I’ve gone back to the spiky hair after a long year and half sporting the long hair look. And I love having short hair again, especially since I can easily poke people I don’t like with the razor sharp spiky hair.
No, I wasn’t watching Pirates of the Caribbean at the time this slogan was conceived. I believe I was reading an article on Yahoo and the word swashbuckler came up. Thought it sounded great. And for the record, I don’t reaaaaallly want to be a swashbuckler when I grow up.Â
Oh, this one was inspired by a professor of mine while were discussing the infinite properties of language. And one point during the talk he had said that same thing (probably with more r’s) and then explained how he could have been the very first person to have said that, ever. And for the record, I like mint chocolate chip ice cream and cherry Garcia the most and maybe pralines and cream.Â
No, I’m not schizo. I just realizes that I need a new pair of Bose headphones because mine are becoming very worn out and is leaving awkward black scum on my ear lobes. At least that’s what the noises inside my head told me.
Welcome to Indie Tee Spotlight #13! This week we feature the newest brand to enter the horror tee genre – Zombie Liquorice! Zombies are very popular these days, in fact, according to PleaseDressMe, Zombies were the number one searched tee type on their tee search engine. People want their zombies – and Zombie Liquorice delivers!Â
Brothers Jason and Jeff, founded Zombie Liquorice this past year and opened up shop just a few months ago. They have worked with some great artists, including Dan Mumford and Godmachine. I had the fortunate opportunity to talk with Jason of Zombie Liquorice, he provided some great insight into how Zombie Liquorice came about and who he would like to work with in the future!Â
Be sure to check out the Zombie Liquorice Online Store – you can buy all of their tees there! Also, if you decide to purchase be sure to use the code:Â COTYGONZ
Coty: You and Jeff started Zombie Liquorice just a few months, with the online store opening just this past November. When did you and Jeff decide to start a clothing line and what got the both of you interested in starting a new brand?
Jason: We both really wanted to start our own tshirt company, with designs we couldnt find in stores. It also helps we both hate our day jobs Ill never forget checking out Emptees for the first time and saying wow, this stuff is amazing I really want to wear this. So I called Jeff (my brother) asked him to check it out and he had the same reaction. So at that point we started Zombie Liquorice, dont ask me how we ever came up with that name, I think it was a heavy metal band name generator if you can believe it.
Coty: You guys obviously love Zombies, so I guess an appropriate question would be to ask what your Top 5 favorite zombie films are.
Jeff: Â 1. Shaun of the Dead,Â 2. Evil Dead (all three),Â 3. Dawn of the Dead,Â 4. Night of the Living Dead,Â 5. Cemetery Man.
Coty: Your initial line of tees feature artwork designed by some of the Internets top indie designers like Godmachine, Corefolio, Survival and most recently Dan Mumford. What has it been like to work with these guys? How did you select the initial group of artists to work with? What other designers would you like to work with in the future?
Jason: These designers have all been great to work with. Everyone has been very professional and its been great to pitch them an idea and watch it come to life! Selecting the artists was very easy for us, we just checked out there online portfolios and if both of our mouths hit the floor we hired them! Right now we would both love to get Chad Lenger to do something for us, his style is out of control. Also Horsebites and maybe in due time Alex Pardee! Those are a few we can think of now, there are many more.
Coty: You’ve been hitting the Internet hard promoting Zombie Liquorice. What have the two of you been doing offline, if any, to promote your line? What marketing technique has best worked so far for Zombie Liquorice?
Jason: Well Offline promoting is hard when you have a day job, most of our sales have been friends and work mates who have said “where can I get that shirt”, however we are going to start trying to work with concert promoters to sell our gear at metal shows. So far the best marketing has been MySpace by far, we have landed over 75% of our sales from myspace traffic, its been incredible and we have GodMachine to thank for the heads up on that.
Coty: You recently announced on the Zombie Liquorice blog that your line is now being carried by the German shop Comet Coma. How did you guys hook up with the Comet Coma guys?
Jason: They actually approached us and asked if we would be interested in dealing with them for distribution in Germany. We decided it was definitly worth it, it was just frustrating at times dealing with German customs, they are very strict we found out when it comes to importing Tshirts of all things.
Coty: You currently have five designs available for sale at Zombie Liquorice. Which of these designs has been your best seller so far? I really dig the Mad Hatter tee, which is your favorite Zombie Liquorice tee?
Jason: So far our best seller is a toss up between Lumber Jacked and Gut Eater, the response to these two has been crazy. As far as favorites go Jeff’s fav is Lumber Jacked my personal fav is the new Scorpion tee
