  1. Chris, Azusa, thanks for the extra links.

    Sherif, Richard, Dickson, Alec, no worries. Glad you saw one or two you liked.

    Shaun, not all for me either. My favourites are Blanka and Kern.

    Jacob, interesting. It’s obvious where the inspiration came from. As for the CMYK, $58 is steep.

  2. Great post David. I’ll have to get my kids to look at it. They have their own little “for fun” t-shirt shop on Zazzle. They sure could use a little more inspiration with their designs. :-)

    BTW: Long time since I’ve visited and left a comment. The site looks fantastic. You really have effectively turned the blog into a showcase for your design work. Good job.

  3. Tracey,

    I’ll have to go back and find the ‘comma sutra’ t-shirt. Nice twist.


    Great to read how you like my site design. I’ve been wondering what to change recently in order to give it some freshness, but perhaps it’s okay for now. Cheers for stopping in again.


    Thanks for the ISO50 link. Some great designs featured there.


    You’re very welcome! Great work on the design.

    Niyaz, Raymondo,

    Glad you like.

  4. I’ve just started producing some shirts with a friend of mine as a break from the usual web and logo design; it has been fun printing them ourselves. we’ve only done three so far but if you’re interested David please check them out at http://www.garbs.yeahok.co.uk

  5. great compilation dude… actually im looking for some affordable tshirt printing companies.. i found zazzle and am planning to try theirs

  6. very nice shirts,
    but only 100 pieces of the helvetica? last collection? no more?
    is there a picture of the complete text? its such a cool shirt,
    i would reprint it for own use

  7. Rich,

    Good luck with your new clothing design venture. I hope it works out for you.

    Steve O,

    Those links are very well received, thanks a lot for posting!


    I’m glad you like some of these.


    I’m with Gareth (Dot Design). Best you don’t reprint one of these designs for your own use. Copyright infringement should be avoided.

  8. Thanks for the article, David. Good stuff.

    It prompted me to order another Time Code T shirt from Blanka. I’m a big fan of Michael C. Place.

    Just snapped up their last Helvetica medium 65 shirt too, so I’m well chuffed.

  9. Well, not gasoline per se, but there is the cost of goods to be shipped in the form of supplies to the manufacturer or printer, or ultimately shipping the finished item to the buyer. And printing inks can contain solvents that are petroleum-based… ;)

  10. Hi Patrick,

    That’s an excellent t-shirt, for sure, and I know I’ve seen it before. If I’d remembered, your design would’ve been included with the others. Good of you to drop in, and thanks for everyone else for your thoughts.

  11. im an extreme artist and have found a field for custom t-shirts that has neve been touched. i already have all the artwork done. but i have no experience in screneprinting. so my question is would your buisness be intrested in splitting the profit after all printing and cost of shirts of your buisness are paid then split the profit you can please call me at 402-210-3528 anytime with a response either way. hope to hear from you soon thanks jake

  12. Pete Versus Toby is also a good Tshirt designer. 3 boys from Byron Bay and they sell at Glebe and Bondi Markets you should check them out.
    They’re awesome :D

  13. Hey David.

    The site is fantastic! Great collection of design/typography tees! I’ve spent a while searching for some shirts exactly like this, and it’s good to know that there are designers and shirts out there that don’t cater to overly-ironic, or just plain dumb, humour to get their point across.

    Shame, though, that most of the companies are European! The Blanka shirts are fantastic, but 25 Pounds is a little steep to show my love for Kraftwerk or The Smiths.

    Keep up the great work!
    (And more tee shirts as you find them, please!)

  14. This is interesting stuff, we have not been asked to print anything in the typography genre yet, I love sans serif. It is also interesting to see a reaction to the £25 Tee. Cheers David.

  15. i am starting up my own t shirt label. i have all the designs ready and done but i am having trouble finding a supplier / manufacturer of the t shirts i am after.
    i really like the fabric / cut of the shirts the guys at ‘pete vs toby’ use, but i cannot find their supplier / manufacturer anyway.
    any suggestions?
    i am in sydney
