Airhead "tank stripe" T-Shirts
 
Since I couldn't ever find any simple and clean airhead inspired shirts I liked, I decided to make my own. And thought I might make a small run for anyone else who might like them.

The shirts are printed on a super soft 100% cotton tee. They are slightly "fitted" but not quite as tight as an American Apparel shirt. They are printed using the water-based discharge method so the print is also super soft and breathable so it's not a thick gob of ink on your chest. It's also more "eco-friendly" if you are into that sorta thing.

**(the print will feel "chalky" when you get the shirt. WASH BEFORE WEARING. that chalkiness is part of the discharge and it all washes out)**

I'm hoping that if these go over well I can do more brands of bikes and iconic tank stripe styles. So consider this a "limited edition test run." haha.

You can order the shirts at my big cartel site:

What would you charge only to print the /6 design on a new hoodie I send you? I'm not really designed for any kind of "fitted" apparel. :lol3

Are these examples printed on black shirts?

apt13 07-05-2012 12:01 PM

i'm not really set up to do one-offs at the moment, sorry. but hoodies would definitely be in the works later on if people seem interested in these.

i thought about the actual tees for awhile. having grown up making band tour shirts, i always used the basic hanes beefy tee or something similar. but they always seemed too thick and always shrank up all funny. these tees are super soft and breathable, but yes they are a bit "fitted" or dare i say "euro" fit, haha. they aren't quite as tight and hipstery as AA shirts, but kind of an in-between AA and your basic hanes beefy. maybe in the future i can do some "larger" sizes if i get enough requests? or if people hate these tees, i'll switch to a more traditional brand.

thanks for the interest!

oh, and yes, the tees are BLACK.

like the look, so if a "normal" large american cut t fits me should I do an XL in this? also, is your site secure, prefer not to throw my cc info out there if not, did not see https in the url

apt13 07-05-2012 12:21 PM

hmmm, well i suppose it depends on how "robust" you are. haha.
the shirt is the same length as a "normal" tee, but it would generally be a tad bit more "snug."

as for security, the site takes you to paypal for the checkout, so it is secure.

here's are the measurements for this specific shirt brand. hope this helps.

Super cool designs. I like American Apparel tees for fit, as I'm fairly slender (though the quality can be hit-or-miss). For reference, what brand are these?

apt13 07-05-2012 02:30 PM

thanks a bunch! and thanks guys for making some orders. pretty stoked so far on the feedback.

the tee brand is canvas, model 3001.

DCrider 07-05-2012 03:02 PM

cool thanks, will place an order shortly

Ordered one! I could have just come to Athens, heh.

khale 07-05-2012 03:06 PM

These are killer! Just ordered the toaster, since that's what I ride :D I love how simple these are, which is fitting for BMW:clap

I'd totally buy a Husqvarna one as well if you made it!

i'll add the husqvarna to the list of possible 2nd series designs. the "trick" though is not to infringe on some logo copyrights too bad. which is why i was hoping to just deal in the tank stripes. but we'll see how it goes!
