What a great concept, t-shirts for twins, another example of the power of niche marketing on the internet The shirts come in sizes from newborn to todler and are $36 for the pair, amazing gift if you know anyone with twins.

Blend Apparel has a wonderful collection of T-Shirts with an incredible collection of positive messages while avoiding being too saccharine. In addition to the positive messages the shirts are made of eco friendly fabrics and even the server is run on wind derived power and the printers run on elastic bands… no i’m kidding about that one. Anyway, check them out, I met the owner at his birthday party at Cafe Gratitude and I can tell you he was a genuinely nice guy, and even though I’d only just met him he invited me out to celebrate with him and his friends and they were all wonderfully warm and welcoming.
They are based in Berkley and here’s what they say about themselves:
Blend Apparel is a culture of connective communication. Our colorful, quirky, and self-aware t-shirts invite internal and external conversation. They are wearable question marks openly aimed at the hows and whys the world works. Our shirts encourage people to smile wider, look closer, and think broader….
We are committed to inspiring. To helping awaken. To showing up as beacons, messengers, and transformationaries. To always choosing the highest path. To listening from within, and to holding love higher than any circumstance. We are completely. Undoubtedly. and absurdly committed to “wear we live.”
Yep, these crazy guys at Print Liberation are having a burp contest, if you’re in the area stop by
I love this T-Shirt from Minicassette T-Shirts, a lycanthrope, as all you underworld fans will know is of course is a werewolf. I really like the way this is designed to look like a beer label, particularly reminiscent of the Löwenbräu brand. A great shirt for all you werewolves that want to fly the flag when you’re out and about
Love this T-Shirt from Dispair Inc. “in Soviet Amerika car drives you… bankrupt”
Love the simple but gloriously overdone words on a shirt concept here from Beatnik Aesthetic . Both the Roar T-Shirt and the Love T-Shirt are worthy wardrobe options. It’s always good to have opposing concepts in your T-shirt collection, love one day, Roar the next

Say Cheese Designed by batturandu from: Burma
Seed Designed by danielarruda from: Brazil
One of the fantastic things they do on the site is give the purchaser the option to direct their donation to a particular cause, this is a feature I would like to see on more ecommerce platforms.
Their are lots of calls for submissions on the site and they do offer cash prizes for designs that are selected. My one quibble on the site is there is very little disclosure or transparency for the people who are submit designs, I couldn’t find anywhere on the site what you may win or any details like that. If these guys could use a threadless like voting model combined with their desire to help non-profits I think they would have a killer combination.
