T-shirt websites

I'm after some new t-shirts, and have been liking some of the designs you can find on many a shiny website on the world wide internet. But everything's priced in dollars... does anyone know of any decent t-shirt sites for the UK? I'm kind of looking at things like the "When Pandas Attack" design, as well as generally nerdy visual wit.

Any suggestions? Any favourite t-shirts?

Eg:




And here's one I know Typo'll like, for the subject matter yes, but more the cheesyness of the puns!

Not a clue on where to buy but you considered doing your own and just getting them printed?

And I love the bottom one (edit - baby one), took a min for it to click but then I was like now that class :)

Thanks Levi I did consider that... I've not looked into it but considering it's only me I would want them for, and not a run of hundreds, I'm not sure how cost effective that would be... plus I'd like to wear something other than my own work haha.

Also I have some printable (as in from your printer) iron on sheets.
Great for a 'one off' classic design and hold colour quite well for time....but don't last forever.

quick google and they seemed about 15-20 quid (+ postage most likely) so when you compare to a decent t-shirt at around 20-30 quid they're not too bad considering yours would be one offs.

edit: as to not wearing your own work, what about a df swap shop of t-shirt designs lol. Actually that just gave me an idea - Greg, how about setting up a simple shop for custom t-shirt designs, we've got printers, got designers, I'm sure we could come up with some exclusive ideas etc. Small percentage goes into DF, cost of production taken out then it's profit :)

Oh boy, I'd buy that Dalek design for a dollar!
Haha thought you'd like that.

I'll certainly have a look, thanks!

Yeah I've got a load of them, they worked really well for the t-shirts I designed for my mate's stag party! Only for white/light t-shirts though, and ones for colour/dark t-shirts tend to be a bit of a faff by comparison due to having white space on them by default.

Interesting... I'll give it some thought. That gives me more work to do haha. But could be an interesting side project, where did you find that quote?

[edit] Nice website Typo, some of those are brilliant, and quite subtle in a way haha. I saw the Nostromo one and was like "where have I heard that before... ah!"

Right.....

Invent Clothing - t-shirt printing and dropship fulfilment - Contact

Design it yourself, they print it. Specialise in DTG printing, which is a massive CMYK printer for tshirts!

Threadless graphic t-shirt designs: cool & funny t-shirts weekly! Tees designed by the community.

Pandas Attack is from Threadless, at the moment they are having a sale, so the shipping wont kill you.

The Pandas is designed by this guy:

He has links to his stuff for sale on there.

Obscure Clothing — Shop

Glenn at Obscure is one of the few people who stocks some of the US brands outside the US.

The Death-ball (not bad name huh!) is from:

Cool Graphic Tees and Cheap Limited Edition T shirts by RIPT Apparel

They do tonnes of pop culture stuff, but it is difficult to know whats coming, follow them on twitter they post all the time. Good thing, cost is cheap, so you shouldn't/won't have to pay too much on postage. I have bought stuff from them no problem.

The king of the comic shirt is now and will always remain:

Glennz Tees - Funny T-Shirts, Mousepads, Laptop Skins and More.

Personal favourite, I have 4 of their shirts:

Miles to go


Most US companies know about the UK US customs and usually mark things as gifts, although don't ask for it.

Thanks mrp, you needn't have traced where the images came from though cos that's where I've posted them from! I was hoping not to have to resort to buying outside the UK.

No tracing involved Jim, I knew. Tshirts are one of my guilty sins!

I've got 40 black shirts, and that it is just black! I know the difference between kelly green shirts by american apparel and tultex on site!
