Everyone loves having a cool and unique T-shirt, and geeks seem to love them the most. There is nothing better than to get an awesome new T-shirt as a present. Although the holiday season may be over soon, it’s still a good idea to know of some places to buy cheap and stylish T-shirts online.
So, Where To Buy T-shirts Online ?
Although MakeUseOf is usually centered around free things, you aren’t likely to get a free good looking T-shirt anytime soon. So, get ready to open up your wallet and spend a few bucks as we take a look at great places to buy T-shirts online.
Although this website doesn’t exactly sell T-shirts, it’s definitely the first place you want to go to when you begin buying T-shirts.
ShirtsOnSale is a blog that gathers information about daily T-shirt deals and provides you with a list of great coupons for T-shirt selling websites. Subscribe to its RSS feed and get updates about T-shirts being sold on Woot, Uneetee, Teefury, and Shirtaday. A great blog for those T-shirt lovers out there.
Shirt.woot is possibly one of the most popular places to get cheap limited time T-shirts. Each day, a shirt of the day is sold for $10 with no shipping fees. If you happen to miss a shirt when it was on sale, fear not; you can still get the shirt for $15 assuming the shirt is still in stock.
Many popular shirts are sold on Woot, and they have limited supplies. So, if you don’t hurry, your new favorite shirt is going to be sold to some creep down the street.
Shirt.woot also has a unique “contest” called the derby. Each Thursday a new theme is released, and Woot members can submit their own designs to the site. Other members vote on the designs, and the top three designs get turned into shirts and sold.
Woot Shirts also has a thing called the Day of Reckoning. Each Monday, the crew takes a look at the shirts being sold and they stop producing the shirts that haven’t been selling. Check out Woot everyday and get the coolest shirt around.
This website is very much like Shirt.woot, expect for one thing. Their slogan sums things up “TEE TODAY. GONE TOMORROW.” Be sure to check this website daily if you really want a unique one of a kind T-shirt. It’s a very simple site to look through. Basically, just check the website each day. If you like the shirt, you buy it. If you don’t, you buy it anyway so you don’t regret not buying it.
Over at OneHorseShy, you don’t have to worry about one T-shirt a day. They have a pretty large stock, and a huge variety of T-shirts to sell. Just browse around for a few hours and find something you like. You can browse the T-shirts by different themes, such as political, geeky, stupid, cool, social, Western, and Asian. The only bad thing about this website is that the T-shirts are a tad bit more expensive (~$20) than the ones from Shirt.Woot or TeeFury.
I personally love the T-shirts over at Busted Tees, mainly because they’re pretty funny and also really simple. This website is very much like OneHorseShy, and so are the prices (though specially discounted T-shirts are cheaper). You can sort the T-shirts by categories, including TV, Internet, politics, wordplay, pop culture, and many more.
You can also buy a variety of hoodies if you’re not that into T-shirts. Busted Tees is just another place to get cool and funny T-shirts.
ThinkGeek. Every geek has heard of it. I’ll be very surprised if everyone hasn’t shopped there before. ThinkGeek is Geek culture at its best. It’s full of extremely geeky T-shirt designs that you’re all going to love. Categories range from generic geek, gaming, and pop culture to Japanese, IT, and Math. This is the best place to get T-shirts that non geeks will never understand. Get a shirt and show off your geeky side.
MySoti is the place to buy, sell, and create your own T-shirt. If you’re a designer, you’re going to fall in love with how easily you can make money. Steps for creating your T-shirt are very simple.
A. Choose a product (canvas or T-shirt)
B. Upload your design (SVG or PNG)
C. Create and submit design
You can choose the price at which you sell your design, starting from the MySoti base price. Whenever a T-shirt sells, you will receive whatever markup you put on. For example, if the MySoti base price was $20, and you sell the T-shirt you created for $30, you will receive a profit of $10. Simple, isn’t it? If you want tips on creating a successful design, check out Simon’s post on T-shirt Designs.
Even if you’re not a designer, you can still benefit a lot from MySoti’s unique T-shirt designs. Go out and have fun making and buying shirts from MySoti.
There you have it. Those are my favorite places to get T-shirts for myself and friends. Do you get your shirts from somewhere else? Which T-shirt designs do you like most? Tell me about it in the comments.
