This is a competition for people who are looking for fame rather than fortune. Fans of The Office may (or may not) be delighted to know that their is an official contest calling for people to submit designs that would be used on t-shirts sold on NBC’s shopping website. I like The Office. It is good light-hearted fun. I don’t… Read more →
The Spirit was released on Christmas Day and the reception was mixed: cold and lukewarm. I read headlines like: ‘The Spirit’ moves from comics to farce and Movie review: Don’t waste money on ‘The Spirit’ and decided that this movie may just be worth missing. To be honest, unless it got amazing reviews I was likely to miss it anyway… Read more →
It’s like Cafepress is Microsoft and the Ungiftables are the Jerry Seinfeld/Bill Gates commercial. They are slowly winning me over. Recently another POD (I’ll tell all in a later post but no, it’s not Zazzle.) described themselves as less square than Cafepress but really they are not. Keep the videos coming Cafepress.
Cafepress have again been spotted doing TV err… spots. I don’t live in the US so I haven’t seen them but I imagine they are shortened down versions of these three videos below. They are connected to the Ungiftables web site that Cafepress created and that I mentioned a few days ago. I prefer the website to the videos but… Read more →
Sales of pro-Obama t-shirts have been so great this past year that I guess they even be comparable to sales of anti-Bush t-shirts in the past 8 years or so. It’s good to dwell on positivity though. In Cafepress the Washington Post have a shop where, on top of some pretty crap t-shirts, you can actually get your hands on… Read more →
I came across this wonderful art at Zazzle which was obviously created by a fan of the tv show, Mad Men. I love this show. I think it is the best TV drama I have seen for a while and I think that this artist (Dyna Moe) has captured the essence of the show in her art. Below is a… Read more →
Cafepress have created a funny new site to help you choose presents for those people who make buying gifts a chore. To be honest I think it is more funny than functional but it is well worth checking out just to meet the characters. I mean “It’s fine, not totally lame!” The Ungiftables.
OK, so I didn’t do enough research before I made my last post about Zazzle’s recent news. I always seem to forget to check the forum announcements which is where they placed the FAQ about the new UK site. I do blame Zazzle partly because of their featureless forum though. Zazzle’s new UK Site – FAQ You should click on… Read more →
It just seems like yesterday when Zazzle announced their .co.uk site (it was yesterday) and now it seems that Cafepress are also going to do the same thing. This is great news again. I just received the following information from Cafepress and I am guessing it is because of Zazzle’s announcement about their UK site as Cafepress almost never tell… Read more →
Fellow t-shirt blogger, Gino Orlandi, has just released an e-book titled Fuel for Design, A Powerful Guide to Starting Your Own Clothing Line. On the books website he mentions that starting a t shirt business has never been so popular. This does seem to be true as online t-shirt stores seem to be popping up everyday and if you include… Read more →
