What prompted me to write this article today, though I've been a customer of ShirtPunch for some time, was one of today's offerings: a print featuring typography in the shape of TMNT's Michaelangelo. (Click on "view the list" for that image and more.) My inner 10-year-old geeked out and I knew that I couldn't keep this level of awesomeness to myself. Cowabunga!
But let's back up a bit. ShirtPunch is a website that features a few unique prints each day. Each one is available for only 24 hours and then never sold again...so if you see something you like, act immediately. Although they identify themselves as a tshirt website, prints are also offered in an array of other formats like posters, phone and iPad cases, stickers, game console and laptop decals, buttons, and sweatshirts. The tees are available in choices, too (unlike most similar sites): long- and short-sleeve shirts, regular or fitted shirts, and male and female cuts. Shirts are categorized as either "pop culture" or "tv." They tend to be of the geeky variety.
Interested in designing a shirt for them? You can!
" Designers from all over the world submit their designs to us for printing! We select designs based on the submissions received and put those shirts in the queue to be printed... [Designers get] cash money, baby! We pay $1 per shirt sold. As a designer, you'll have access to live sales statistics so you can see exactly how much you've earned as it's happening! Designers also get full exposure with an artist interview, links to all of their sites and social media, and a place to display some side art (other designs they may want to showcase.) Best of all, designers get to keep 100% of the rights to their designs! We just borrow the design for 24-hours, and we retain no rights once the sale has ended."
One of the other shirts offered today is a Sherlock Holmes shirt entitled "I Am Sherlocked." (Click on "view the list" for that image and more.)
I am loving the Sherlock series. While I like this shirt, I previously bought a Sherlock tee off of ShirtPunch...which brings me to a sampling of my ShirtPunch purchases.
