Reactee – Your T-Shirt Message + Text Message

Reactee is a company that enables you to create your own t-shirts with your own custom message on them, big deal, right? Except Reactee T-shirts also have a text message code on the shirt that people can text, and then get another message from you.

This is a great idea and there are lots of obvious ways that companies, bands, groups, politicians etc. can use this. I think there are probably a huge amount of interesting ways that people could use this for fun as well.

Like my Band

I actually think this is a feature that should be built into all good t-shirts, maybe a little less prominently. I’ve had loads of times people comment on my shirt and I’d love to say, well text this number on the label and the company will send you a discount code, how cool would that be.

Anyway, if you want updates from tcritic just follow the instructions on this t-shirt:

Thanks for the Tip from (a photographer) and hat tip to as well.


Cake and Ciggarettes from Seibei

eat cake and smoke ciggarettes

Sometimes I find really cool shit on t-shirt war and this falls into that category. I love it, “I like to eat cake and smoke ciggarettes” t-shirt from Seibei. All of Seibei’s designs have a certain coolness which seems effortless and essentially ambivilent, they don’t care if you think it’s cool, it just is. Tough to pull off on a regular basis and yet Seibei does it. In a similar vein see “I like to say things and eat stuff“, why on earth that should work on a shirt I don’t know, but it does. There must be a term for that kind of non-sequitur, irony? sarcasm? Where’s a t-shirt academic when you need one :-)

Ninja Monday – T-shirts from Askaninja and threadless

Ask a Ninja

The folks at Ask a Ninja have updated the ninja mart store with a couple of new designs and as they are also fans of t-shirts as well as t-shirt purveyors you know they have to be good. Also in the ongoing saga of Ninja’s Vs Pirates check out Ask A Ninjas review of Pirates of the Caribbean 3, best line ever is:

They loaded 4 or 5 screenplays into a shotgun then just pulled the trigger and sent a PA around to pick up random words and put them together and then handed that to the actors

I have to agree, Pirates of the Caribbean 3 sucked so bad I wanted to stab needles in my eyes rather than continue watching it.

Apparently the only thing that Ninjas and Pirates agree on is that cowboys suck (and it’s on sale for $10) :-)
