And here's a cool one from ShirtPunch:

Shirts start at $10 and go up. Different style shirts available along with hoodies, magnets, stickers, and more. Shipping is extra but relatively low. Ships from Canada so there may be a small wait.

I'm hereby updating my review of 6dollarshirts.com.

Earlier this week, I received the 10 shirts that I ordered as part of their 10 for $50 (after shipping, 10 for $66) deal. The shirts arrived much sooner this time, perhaps because I was paying for shipping instead of using their free shipping that they offer only on their featured shirt of the day. The shirts are also very comfortable, more so than the first shirt I ordered from them (which provided only an average level of comfort-- not bad, but not good).

In short: great shirts at a hell of a deal.

Tees are $12 with FREE shipping! After today it may go in the 'reckoning' for a while and be available for $15 with FREE shipping.


As much as I like it, I never buy holiday related shirts, you have basically a 1 month window every year where its acceptable to wear.

Nothing to see here, move along!

That's ridiculous. Who says it's acceptable? You? Society?

Why do t-shirt designers feel the need to mash two things together? Just draw a cool picture of Link. Optimus Prime has nothing to do with Zelda. The most successful designs are the ones that take something small from a game (so only people who have played it will "get it") and make it the focal point.

Um, you're the lawyer here, but aren't mash-ups/parodies covered under the first amendment, while the latter idea is not?

Tell that to a friend of mine. I showed him shirt and he literally flipped shit, he's a HUGE Transformers and Zelda fan. I bought him the Optimum Prime and Samus shirt a few months back as well.

It's definitely a grey area. Probably none of this is protected speech because of the commerce aspect. I mean, I can't just put a cape on Spider-man and start merchandising. A one-off t-shirt isn't going to get the content owners' attention though which is why I think these t-shirt sites can survive. I honestly don't know though.

Family Guy and South Park depict things all the time as parodies, and I'm pretty sure they're both commercial. But you know more about law than me, and you don't even know. I'd ask a patent lawyer, but I don't really want to bother him about something this trivial =P And obviously, IANAL.

The majority (if not the entirety) of these shirt designs are protected as fair use:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use

Anything that's not an original work isn't covered, of course, so you can't simply slap a picture of Mario onto a shirt. Obviously there are going to be some gray areas and greedy companies who don't believe in fair use, but I rarely see the issue come up in regards to t-shirts, even when they do infringe on a company's rights.

Eh, I'm not sure these shirts pass the test for fair use. It fails #1 and you can easily assert a position that it fails the other 3.

Sometimes mashups work, and other times they just look tacky. As both a Link and Optimus Prime fan, I hate the design.

Well I am guessing this is an Oregon Trail mashup of some sort? If anyone knows that the other half of this 'mashup' is please tell me, I'm curious. Maybe it's nothing. =\

Tees start at $10, and they make several other things if you want the design on something other than a tee (hoodies, phone cases, etc).

Thank you for the clarification. I have never watched Supernatural (obviously).

Just saw this is up today on ShirtPunch:

I think this is a pretty awesome shirt if you are into all the Pokemon. I'm never really got back into Pokemon after the first gen myself (and this shirt seems to be *mostly* first gen).

Tees start at $10. Also sells other things like posters, hoodies, etc. Ships from Canada (~$2.75 shipping to USA for a Tee).
