Last December a guy named Sam who works for a startup t-shirt company called ooshirts emailed to offer me three free t-shirts of my own design.
I put together a design with a molotov cocktail on the front and “No sense of humor when it comes to totalitarianism” on the back, along with the URL of this blog. They took about a week to come in, and were as well made and as well printed as any t-shirts I have. I gave one to Clint Davidson, one to Mike Stuart, and kept one for myself.
I intended to write a review of the shirts, but wanted to see how they held up first. I’m happy to report that both mine and Mike’s have held up very well to almost a year’s wear (Mike wore his to karate class last Sunday).
The price is right, too, even if Sam doesn’t send you three for free—$27.16 for a single full-color-front-and-back t-shirt, $24.16 each for two or three, $21.66 each for four or five and progressively less per shirt for shirts bought in greater numbers. Prices are lower for fewer colors or sides, higher for heavier t-shirts, hoodies, sweatpants, and so forth. And free shipping on all. I don’t know how prices compare to other options for volume orders, and you’ll forgive me sounding a little advertisey in this post, but where else are you going to get a single high-quality t-shirt printed to your specs for less than the cost of your average concert T? (Hmmm…why buy the concert T when you can print your own?)
Next time I need a few t-shirts (I may design some for my biggest campaign contributors) I’ll go right to ooshirts.
