Shirt.Woot’s Editor’s Choice: Road Trip collection

Shirt.Woot’s Editor’s Choice: Road Trip plus sale might drive many to pick up some new t-shirts. This collection has something to offer for more than just fans of the open road and travel, though- there’s also a smattering of pop culture references and even some text art for those looking for something beyond an ode to cars. Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: The History Machine by kg07 is a real feast for the eyes with its textured brown shades, the kind of illustration thick with little moments and details to take in.

Nicest Surprise: Road Trip Therapy by eduely has a playful flow to its type that first impressed me in voting.

Shirt I Am Most Biased About: My design Punch Bug! commemorates a favorite road trip pastime.

This promotion will only last until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday. So if there’s something you like, grab it fast!

Shirt.Woot’s Literary Greats derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot buried its nose in a book for the Literary Greats derby, which had artists both paying tribute to genre classics and celebrating the medium of books in general. Readers will find lots to like, both artistic and slogan, but here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…

This Book is Lit by Wheels03 brings back font memories of personal pan pizzas as prizes for reading, and the lit/literature joke adds some humor to the nostalgia.

Better Late Than Never by jasneko puts a fun spin on Wonderland’s rabbit, and the art conveys a franticness that sells his nervous energy.

This derby continues through Thursday at noon. The top three vote-getters will each earn $1000 cash and $2 per item sold. Additionally, other designs will be selected and sold for $2 per item each. Both top vote-getters and selected designs will be sold in a future Plus sale.

Pi in Shirt Design: 15 great examples

In terms of accessible, fun, and interesting math designs, pi shirts tend to be the cream of the crop. There’s so much potential to explore in both humor and the beauty of numbers that artists have found nearly as many ways to express the concept as there are digits in pi itself. Here’s a look at 15 of the best ways pi has been used in shirt design…

Shirt.Woot Derby #682: GraTEEtude

Thanksgiving inspired Shirt.Woot‘s latest derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #682: GraTEEtude

Gratitude may be evergreen, but we think November is a GREAT time to be GRATEFUL! Designs for next week’s GraTEEtude derby should demonstrate or celebrate gratitude in all it’s forms. You can even show us what you are grateful for. But here’s the deal. This is NOT a Thanksgiving derby. Been there, done that. This is about GRATITUDE, not a turkey-filled holiday. Thanksgiving designs will be rejected and sent to the back of the fridge with the leftovers. Also, no Grateful Dead and no cream shirts.

This derby begins Thursday at noon and continues through next Thursday at noon. The top three vote-getters will each earn $1000 and $2 per item sold after the first day of sales. Those winners will be sold on Friday (1st), Saturday (2nd), and Sunday (3rd). Additionally, other designs may be selected for a Plus sale on the following Monday, with each selected design earning $2 per item sold.

Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: Hand Lettering and Typography collection

Slogans and decorative lettering were the focus of Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: Hand Lettering and Typography plus sale. Since this was a style contest, the subject matter was wide open leading to designs that speak to a variety of interests. From pop culture and puns to artistic arrangements, there’s a lot to take in. Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: I love the simple, sophisticated lines of Tacos Are My Thing by Walmazan.

Nicest Surprise: I Speak Fluent Typo by ormadraws has a great flow, using four different lettering styles in a way that still makes them feel cohesive and natural together.

Shirt I Am Most Biased About: My design AmpersAND? constructs one of the most iconic forms in lettering out of examples from numerous fonts.

This promotion will only last until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday. So if there’s something you like, grab it fast!

Shirt.Woot’s Road Trip derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s Road Trip derby is packed with slogans and artwork about travel, especially involving cars but also including both imaginary and historical jaunts using a variety of vehicles. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Road Trip Therapy by eduely is arranged with an appealing flow and playful lettering, with just enough road detail in the background to set the scene.

Warmer Climate by Randyotter puts together a lot of great moments of penguins interacting with each other and enjoying the ride. My favorite is the fellow who falls off the back of the bus… or maybe the suspicious closed-eye penguin above who may have pushed him!

This derby continues through Thursday at noon. The top three vote-getters will each earn $1000 cash and $2 per item sold. Additionally, other designs will be selected and sold for $2 per item each. Both top vote-getters and selected designs will be sold in a future Plus sale.
