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. Check out past reviews on: ShirtFight, A Better Tomorrow, Full Metal T-Shirt, tFuse, Design By Humans, Teextile and Tilteed.
Stroller by John Fitzpatrick and available at Finroo. Pros: The shirt is OMG soft. It seriously is one of the softest shirts I’ve ever worn. Finroo uses Direct-To-Garment printing but this is by far the softest print I’ve felt, screenprinted or DTG. The shirts are printed on organic bamboo. The print seems to be built right into the fabric, it’s the seamless. From touch alone you cannot tell where the print starts and where it ends. It’s tagless for itchfree comfort and features a screenprinted necktag instead. Inside of the lower hem there is a print that shows the number of the shirt (out of 100). Finroo claims their shirts to be all natural and hypoallergenic but i have no way to test this.Â Cons: It’s a bit pricey but other than that there’s not much that I can complain about. Some of you might find the shirts to be too thin. If you enjoy staying cool then you’ll appreciate the thinness. No custom packaging, just a FedEx mailer.Â Price: $34.99
Roboboy by Aaitski. Pros: If you enjoy wearing character based shirts then you must check out Aaitski. They feature some of the most fun characters you’ll find on the Internet! This shirt features a custom hangtag.Â Cons: The sleeves were a bit longer than I typically like and the arm holes were a bit wider than I am accustomed to but the rest of the shirt fit fine. Aaitski URL printed on back of shirt.Â Price: â‚¬25 ($36 US).
