Shirt.Woot Derby #606: Summer Breakation

Summer is almost here, so that’s what Shirt.Woot has on their mind with the latest derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #606: Summer Breakation

‘Tis the season to pack your stuff and head out into the world do some stuff and see some other stuff. And also probably some people you’re related to. So next week’s derby is all about summertime road-trippin’, travelin’ & vacationin’. No cats. Including the big kind. And remember, only backseat drivers submit cream tees.

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: Dadism derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s Dadism derby was themed to make tees available ahead of Father’s Day, so it’s probably not surprising that most artists entered designs that only a dad could wear. Two of my favorite current underdog entries, though, went in a broader direction by designing things that are about fatherhood, but easily wearable by anyone.

Dad’s Mo Has Visitors by transformingegg is a fun, kid-friendly pun about the silly side of masculinity.

Tranquility by yazmoq caught my eye because of its softness and sense of serenity. How cute are those sleepy turtles?

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.

Shirt.Woot’s The Mother Lode collection

Shirt.Woot’s Mom-themed The Mother Lode plus sale may have arrived too late for Mother’s Day, but is thankfully not holiday-specific and instead focuses on mothering-inspired themes, some obvious and others more outside the box. Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: Momvocado by fishbiscuit5 is a clever take on a type of food that many moms love.

Nicest Surprise: Don’t Make Me Turn This Car Around by ThatRobert was a favorite of mine in voting, and the slogan should instantly resonate with anyone who took a childhood family road trip.

Shirt I Am Most Biased About: My design Gummy Mummy explores the parentage of gummy bears, with delicious results.

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

Shirt.Woot Derby #605: Water You Waiting For?

Shirt.Woot might have beaches on the brain, because their latest derby theme is…

Now that it’s summer, we say it’s high tide we ran a derby about all the wet n’ wild ways to have some watery fun in the sun.

Shirt.Woot: The Mother Lode derby voting highlights

Since Shirt.Woot‘s The Mother Lode derby fell during Mother’s Day rather than safely before, holiday-specific designs were off the menu in this contest. But that turned out for the best, as artists stretched their wings and created tees wearable year round that celebrate the quirks of moms and motherhood. Here are two current underdog entries that I think could use some more attention…

Don’t Make Me Turn This Car Around by thatrobert cleverly translates the classic parental rebuke into the language of road trips, the license plate.

All Seeing Mom by jrberger combines a traditional motherly superpower with a geek culture monument, perfect for nerdy moms.

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.

Shirt.Woot is all about winning with their new Victory plus sale. Here’s a quick look at the designs this week that most won me over…

Best of the Bunch: Sprinkles are for Winners by fishbiscuit5 first caught my eye in voting, and I think it’s relatable approach to dessert should have strong appeal with buyers.

Nicest Surprise: Aim for the Stars by Rasabi tweaks a famous phrase to better suit Star Wars’ Stormtroopers.

Shirt I Am Most Biased About: My design Bowlers Strike First is a playful, retro take on the sport.

Shirt.Woot Derby #604: Dadism

This week may have been all about mothers, but Shirt.Woot is balancing things out with their next derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #604: Dadism

Father’s day is also coming soon (you’re welcome, again). So next week’s Derby will focus on dads & dadhood. And just like this week’s mom derby, we want a range of designs that reflect the cool and complicated and socks-and-sandals-wearing dadbod realness embedded in the concept of ‘Dad.’ No cats, no cream tees, no Luke/Darth artwork, and no designs that say ‘Father’s Day’ (or any variation thereof).?

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.
