The T-Shirts are white ink on black Alternative Apparel Vintage Soft (100% Egyptian Cotton). They are incredibly soft – softer even than the American Apparel shirts we’ve had in the past. Seriously. Soft. Comfortable. We have adult sizes Small-XXL. They are $12 each in store.
The pull-over hoodies are also white on black. They are on Gildan 50/50 (half cotton, half polyester). They are also pretty darn soft for a hoodie. They are warm and nice. We have these also in adult sizes Small-XXL. These are $25 each in store. Shogun Shop did the screening on all of these (The T’s and the Hoodies) and they came out great.
Once again we had Contagious Graphics print stickers for us (if you ever use them please use us as a reference). They are sweet vinyl stickers and are free at the shop (if you order anything from us ask for one and we’ll stick it in with your order).
If you want to mail order these please do. Ordering buttons below these handsomely modeled pictures below.
Finally, if you are wondering the significance of all these icons or runes, well, I’ll give you an idea right now. First of all, this was inspired by and is a tribute to one of my favorite record labels – one that uses a series of runes above their name (ask me [Rick] and I’ll tell you right off the bat – guess and I’ll give you a free sticker [yes, they are free anyway – jokes]). Todd Rogers (Teaessare Design) once again made our vision a reality. He is the best and if you need some design work we definitely recommend him.
All right, the breakdown from left to right (furthest left being #1 and furthest right being #6). 1. Josh loves Integrity – this is a rune often used by Dwid (Integrity). That’s about as simple as that. 2. File sharing kills music symbol. This symbol is a take on the home-taping is killing music of the ’80s. It’s a bit tongue-in-cheek, actually. It’s a ridiculous notion to take at face value, but the imagery speaks to our business just the same. We don’t sell files. 3. This is the Om symbol. Music is meditative. Mantra, take me home I trust you (Shelter lyrics). 4. You might and maybe should recognize this owl from our fliers and previous shirt design (double thanks to Todd Rogers for this). 5. I (Rick) love KLF – this is a two dimensional take on the three dimensional Justified Ancients of Mu Mu symbol. 6. This is a record. You know that. We sell ’em. We love ’em.
Of course, you can just take these at face value too. Make up a story of your own. We don’t mind. #1 is representative of Robert Johnson and the crossroads and the very roots of rock and roll. #2 is a robot with a patch over it’s left eye. #3 is the ancient rune for happiness. #4 is the image of the owl from the original Clash of the Titans movie. #5 is King Tut’s original design for his final resting place – he actually designed the first boom box centuries before they existed (nothing new for them crazy Egyptians – also the reason we used the Egyptian cotton shirts). #6 is still a CD that looks a lot like a record. We sell ’em. We love ’em.
Now you try.
