Sodahead has become somewhat of an obsession with the fellows over at Emptees. If you’re wondering who Sodahead is then you might want to check out the video below of the kid who has the uncanny ability to destroy Mountain Dew like it’s no ones business. Plus, I encourage you to watch till exactly 1:37 when the epic spider leg makes an appearance. Â
Anywho, about a month ago, Jud of ShirtFight had created a contest of sorts for the best Sodahead tribute video and designerÂ Killer Napkins had produced an awesome tee as the prize. Aubrey from Full Metal T-Shirt printed a few of these uber limited edition tees up for the winner, Jud, Miss Etti of ShirtFight and Killer Napkins. Talk about team work! These are produced on a per order basis so if you’d like one you need to contact Aubrey with your shirt size, address and payment of $20. Any questions about this T-Shirt should be forwarded here.
Congratulations to alanis for creating the winning design for ShirtFight #5. If you remember correctly, the theme was Miss Etti’s Birthday and she had an entire list of birthday wants. She chose Geisha as her favorite design and alanis earned a cool $500 for being the winner of ShirtFight #5!Â
For those of you who think that they’ve got the chomps to jump into a ShirtFght then dust off your mouse and start to prepare for ShirtFight #6: Shirts of the Future! Check out the video for more information.
Sassatattoo came out on top of this weeks ShirtFight design challenge with his Rats Live On No Evil Star design! The theme was hidden subliminal messages and as you can see from the winning design, there are some mysterious changes occur once the glow in the dark ink kicks in! You can pick up this tee for just $15 right now!Â
And of course with every new winner announced come a new ShirtFight challenge and this weeks new theme is … dun dun dun … Miss Etti’s Birthday! Yup, another birthday but hey, she’s got her own set of stuff on her wishlist! Good luck to all that enter and may the best ShirtFighter win!
Calling all designers – get ready for the newest tee design contest site to hit InternetLAND. The name of the site is ShirtFight and it was started by husband and wife duo looking to improve on the current crop of tee design competition sites. They’ve done their research and have also approached designers for their input as to what they would like to see in a competition site. Although the site is not officially open (they open on March 5), you can sign up to receive a 5 day advance notice of the first design challenge.Â
Miss Etti, one part of the founding couple, sent me ShirtFight’s pledge to the tee design community:
We’re going to keep things fun, that’s important to us. We’re doing weekly themed competitions, and we’ll keep them interesting. And we aren’t just going to throw cash at the winner and call it a day…that’s boring! I can’t give you any details just yet (it’s hush hush), but we have a lot of great ideas to put a smile on the faces of our artists and community members every day.
We’ll always keep our community priority #1. We’re nothing without you guys! That’s why we’re going to keep the lines of communication open, constantly ask for your opinions and feedback, and do what we can to make this the most artist-focused t-shirt design competition site out there!
We want to keep the individuality and the uniqueness for our community (the artists *and* the customers)…and to achieve that we’re never going to carry more than 21 shirts at any given time. It drives me nuts to see hundreds of pages of shirts on a site…it’s like being lost in a sea of tees! By showcasing the very best designs, we get to focus everyone’s attention to the talents of the artist. Plus, if we only carry a select number of designs at a time, this eliminates the “Damn, everyone is wearing a Threadless t-shirt!” syndrome.
The weekly cash prize will be $500, but in celebration of their launch, the first contest will be two weeks long with the winner receiving $2009 cash! Pretty awesome, eh! And think about it, your chances to win at ShirtFight might be better than at some of the more crowded and established competition sites. Why not try ShirtFight out when it opens on March 5 – are you up for a good fight?Â
