Recently the T Addict received a couple of shirts from the company Ten Bills
For those who don’t know anything about Ten Bills, their basic marketing strategy is to create fresh, original t-shirts and then sell them for only $10. They release a new shirt each week and they have quite a few hits. It’s a pretty cool idea since you can often find some real winners here and stock up without breaking the budget.
Here’s one of the shirts they sent me called Currency Logo with their name screen printed on it. Many times companies miss the point and waste the opportunity to get sick with it when doing logo’ed shirts. Ten Bills did not miss the boat on this concept. They created a very clean design featuring their logo with a mix of color and fabric working together.
It’s a pretty cool printing style and I really like the detail present on the bird. All in all this design is one of the more interesting branding shirts I’ve come across and it’s a good strategy to get people asking about what Ten Bills is.
Part 2 is coming soon and we’ll show another print they sent me where it gives me the chance to cover the quality of the tees and the print. You don’t want to miss that do you? I didn’t think so.

Ever since Go Media released their first volume of Arsenal T-Shirt Templatessecond volume
I hope see these getting some heavy use out there in the stores and presentations. This package is easy to use and fairly priced. There’s no more excuses for poor quality t-shirt design templates and mock ups!

I know this is the T Addict’s second referral post of a list this week. I’m not ashamed of it. Ain’t no shame in this game.

That just leaves the designing up to the designers and gives the line owner more time for marketing/selling. It’s an added bonus when you get a designer that has printing experience and can provide you with the color separated artwork for the printer as well.
Check out the list at PCT because I’ll bet they don’t stay on the market very long!

I hate doing me-too posts, but I have no choice on this one. The T Addict really hearts the Knuckle Collision T-shirt on Shirt FightCoty’s blog
The hands are pretty gnarly and the lucha libre masks on the thumbs are the icing on the cake. I like the halftone pattern in the design and knowing that soft plastisol ink is being used really helps with the ink coverage being so big. The shirt will be printed on the American Apparel mint color and the print colors are pretty awesome. Sick design Yonil

I have to admit, the T Addict is pretty impressed with the quality of the artwork being printed by Ript Apparel
They are based out of Chicago like the other t-shirt juggernaut ThreadlessTeeFury
This first one was my theme pick. It pays homage to the Fear and Loathing style of design.
I like the placement on this one and the ability to stay with just one color.
The colors on this one go perfect together. I rarely see a light yellow shirt that I have to have.

The T Addict just couldn’t pass this one up. The design is a little less zombie and much more electric considering a robot is strummin’ the strings something fierce. It’s kind of hard to have a zombie robot although it I’m sure it has been tried before. But I digress….

Is this for real? According to Perez Hilton
The man purchase the shirt on a recent trip he took to New York City and just got sentenced to a month in jail for wearing it. He will also be deported back to his home country of Lebanon after his jail term.
The shirt was actually created for skin cancer awareness. It makes you wonder if he purchased the shirt for the cause or because Posh wasn’t wearing any drawers.
