Spoiler Tees is an online t-shirt store specializing in t-shirts with designs that contain spoilers for various movies and TV shows.
Spoiler Tees (established just this year!) is an online store dedicated to making sure that everybody around you is absolutely miserable. We have a love/hate relationship with movie and TV spoilers – so as an interesting social experiment* we thought “Why not put this shit onto shirts and see what happens?”
Spoiler Tees T-Shirt Review
It’s a medium-sized black 100% cotton t-shirt manufactured by Anvil in Haiti. The Anvil label is still attached, but it’s a tear-away label you if it bothers you, you can just rip it off easily enough. It’s nice soft cotton and a good fit.
It’s a four-color print and very soft. On darker t-shirts, to get a vibrant finish you have to use more ink, usually an under-layer of white. This can make the print a little heavy which I am not particularly fond of. I think this t-shirt only uses one layer and that’s why the print is light and heavy. It would also explain why the colors are not so vibrant. I’m not saying vibrant colors are required, in fact, I think the muted colors on this t-shirt suit the design.
The print quality is not so bad, but it’s not great. In the white (whitish) part of the design, the black from the t-shirt seeps through and the spoiler alert text is not sharp. It may be intentional, but it just looks like a poor print. It’s very small and doesn’t take away from the t-shirt too much though.
The design features Colin Firth’s character from Kingsman: The Secret Service with a red splash on his head. I guess this dark pink splash represents blood and that this character gets shot in the head. I haven’t seen the movie, but this t-shirt store specializes in t-shirts with TV show and movie spoilers. It’s not a bad design. Colin Firth is easily recognizable.
Branding and Extras
The t-shirt has the original Anvil tags that can be torn off but apart from that the branding is minimal. The SPOILER ALERT text is a subtle branding that is quite acceptable. It is almost required for this store as it’s the theme. Anyway, it’s more like a catchphrase than a logo.
There is also a small logo sticker on the white plastic mailer that the t-shirt arrived in.
It’s a reasonably modern responsive website. It’s a little untidy but easy to navigate. They have about 35 items in the store. The designs are added to mockups which make the store look a bit dodgy and cheap. You can add the designs to men’s/women’s tees as well as unisex hoodies. You can also choose from various colors. I suspect that the items are printed on demand using DTG.
The tees are $24.99 with free US shipping or $5 shipping to Canada. I guess it’s not a bad price.
The t-shirt blank they chose seems to be good quality, but I think more care could be put into the print. The store would look more professional if they added actual t-shirt images or even just more realistic mockups.
