The Storenvy Interview and More (0)

Published on November 25th, 2009. By

Many of you fellow T Addicts have heard of Jon Kruse before. He is a one-man t-shirt wrecking crew. He has started two successful t-shirt lines, Mediocore

and Shred , and runs the popular t-shirt blog How to Start A Clothing Company . If none of those sound familiar to you then you have surely run into him at Emptees where he is one of the most prolific members.

He recently did an interview with Storenvy

on HTSACC because he has been so pleased with their printing after making the switch to them. The interview covers the new Storenvy features as they release the latest version of their completely free store system. The new system looks to be a disruptor of sorts with all of the social features that will help the storekeepers create more sales and make more money.

Head over to How To Start A Clothing Company

Smashing Magazine Covers T-Shirts (0)

Any time t-shirts are mentioned in the mainstream blogosphere, the T Addict’s ears perk up a little. It’s nice to see when our world gets the recognition it deserves. It just shows that our community is growing and spilling over into some different genres.

Most recently, Smashing Magazine

did a mega-post showcasing online t-shirts stores . So why is this significant? Because Smashing Magazine is a beast in the design blog niche. They boast over 800k unique visitors a month, over 180k RSS subscribers, and over 85k Twitter followers. That what I call distribution fellow addicts!

You’ll also be pleased to see the sites that were covered in the article. We have featured many of them here on T Addict and recognize many more. Head over there

to see what I’m talkin’ about.

99 Designs Has The SXSW T-Shirt Design Contest (0)

It’s that time of year again when I’m already getting mailouts for South By Southwest

. For those of you who are not familiar with the conference/festival, it is one hell of a time. Turns out this year, they’re having a design contest for the t-shirts and they chose to run that it at the 99 Designs site. Everything I had seen on 99 designs before looked to be high quality and this contest is no different.

Head over to the 99 designs blog

to get your vote in for what design should be printed. Here are two of my faves that I noticed:

Linty Fresh’s Tired of the City (0)

Published on November 13th, 2009. By

Linty Fresh

has continued to release new t-shirts with the founder in China. The latest is called “Tired of the City ” and it goes beautifully with the rest of the brand.

As a special bonus in typical Linty Fresh style, it comes complete with a collector’s edition card of a poem to match. The design is done on a bright yellow shirt and features some pretty interested plumbing. A little closer look reveals the Linty Fresh name in that plumbing.

Once again we see Linty Fresh creatively and subtly working their brand name into the artwork. This is a pretty clever way to increase branding and recognition. It is certainly more artistic and less obtrusive than simply printing the name on the shirt in standard font. Check out a couple of other examples of this strategy used by Linty Fresh before:

The T Addict just received this little nugget in his inbox and wanted to be the first to post about it. In the Design By Humans

newsletter they included a picture of Will Ferrell wearing one of their more campy tees with a tree taking candy from a baby. Congrats DBH for the exposure! Congrats to the T Addict for being Quick Draw McGraw!

What should the T Addict do when two of the biggest and baddest t-shirt bloggers get together for a t-shirt video? He should post about it, that’s what he should do. Cottonable

and Coty Gonzales have partnered up for Co-Tee TV Episode 39 and it’s a must watch t-shirt vid:

Mash Kulture Celebratin’ the Dirty Third (0)

Published on October 23rd, 2009. By

Mash Kulture

is celebrating its 3rd Anniversary they are aptly calling their Dirty Third. What better way to celebrate their dirty third than by creating a t-shirt featuring “the shocker” err…..I mean…. a hand showing the number 3.

It is a collaboration with Tyra Clothing

and they will be sold at a monster party they are throwing on October 29th in celebration. Mash Kulture is a pretty dope site featuring street wear and they came up with a super slick tee to commemorate their anniversary. The T Addict is getting some ideas….

The Sleight of Hare by Fuzzy Ink (0)

Published on October 20th, 2009. By

, under Cool Tees .

The T Addict loves a good design that makes you look a little closer to see exactly whats going on. You know what else the T Addict likes? A good double entendre. I think we have a little bit of both going on here. This t-shirt design, called Sleight of Hare

, is brought to us by Fuzzy Ink .  They are known for featuring mustaches in their designs and this one is no different.

However, this design features more than just hair, it also features a hare.  And the magician doing the trick may have had the fast one pulled on him.  Have I confused you enough? Take a look at their newest shirt and it will all make sense:

It costs $18.95 which is the same as giving it away in these eyes!

The Grafitee Blog Tee (0)

It’s only fair that we show a little T Addict love to the t-shirt blogging gangsta in France called Grafitee

. Not only does Grafitee bring the European slant on t-shirt news and current trends, but they also dropped their own t-shirt . It’s a pretty slick design too!

If only the T Addict could read French, I could tell you more about it. I am good at reading images though, so here goes:

Complex Drops Their Top 100 Tees of the 2000′s (0)

Published on October 12th, 2009. By

, under Cool Sites .

Here is a heads up on a pretty cool list if you are into streetwear.  Complex just dropped their list of Top 100 T-shirts in the 2000′s

. They have done this before with the Top 100 Albums,Top 100 Sneakers, Top 100 Movies and a few others. The T Addict didn’t alert you guys about those lists before because The T Addict doesn’t write about those subjects.  Makes sense doesn’t it?

One reason you might want to pay attention to the list a little further is because Marc Ecko

purchased Complex not too long ago.  And as many of you may already know, Marc got his start being a graffiti artist in New York.  He started tagging his own tees, and the rest is history.  Check it out by clicking on the image below:
