Co-Tee TV is here and I’ve got on two Mac inspired T-Shirts in this episode. The first tee was intentional but the second tee was entirely coincidental! I am not even kidding. In this episode I wear I’m A Mac from Insanely Great Tees and review Macintosh from Print Liberation.

Macintosh by Print Liberation.Pros: You’ll buy this shirt because you’re a big Apple fan, simply love using your Mac or once had one of these original Macintosh’s. The shirt is printed on a Creme American Apparel T-Shirt and features halftones for depth and different shades of gray. Makes the perfect gift for any old school Mac fan or new school Apple fanboy!Â Cons: This is a no frills shirt so don’t expect fancy packaging or extra goodies but do expect a good quality screen print. Price: $18.00.
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.
Looks like Glennz Tees is making voter selected tees a standard now. Here are two of his latest designs, Trash (top) and Nightmare (bottom). Trash is available on a slate colored American Apparel blank and Nightmare on a forest blank. Both are available now for $19.95.Â
Trash is a must-have for geeks! That trash can, for some reason, reminds me of the System 7 iteration of the Mac OS.Â
In other news, Glennz Tees has begun selling children sized tees. Currently, there are 7 children sized tees available for $19.95.
The Exploded 128 tee is the newest tee of the popular exploded style to hit the Internets. It was designed by illustrator Garry Booth and feature, arguably, the most influential personal computer ever created -- the original Macintosh. Just to give you some perspective, when the Macintosh was unveiled on January 24, 1984, it featured an 8 MHz processor and 128 KB of RAM built in. Yes, 128 kilobytes. The street price for one of these cute beige beauties was $2495.00. Isn’t it amazing how far we’ve come in the past 25 years. As a side note, I actually own one of these guys. A teacher in high school had one lying around from his college years and I asked him if I could have it. And luckily for me, he passed it on.
The tee is available now for $18 and is printed on an American Apparel asphalt tee. And I have to say that the Apple fan in me is absolutely in love with this tee!
Also, check out the two videos below of the original unveiling famous 1984 ad and of Steve Jobs doing a demo of the Macintosh.

But a true MacAddict can without a doubt and no hesitation tell you what the other two models are. Can you identify the other two Apple products? Pick up this tee at Go Ape Shirts for $19.Â
