This shirt pretty accurately depicts my emotional reaction to the news that so many members of Congress, including a number of self-described progressives, voted to reauthorize the surveillance provisions of the Patriot Act.
I know that under the Patriot Act, the feds aren’t even mainly using surveillance cameras to monitor innocent, law-abiding Americans. It’s [...]
T-Shirt Monster is a Canadian company that prints graphic designs on t-shirts and ships them out to customers on demand. For every t-shirt that T-Shirt Monster sells, the person who came up with the graphic design on the shirt gets a commission, making the print-on-demand model a good way for designers and T-Shirt Monster to [...]
Yesterday afternoon, the print-on-demand t-shirt outfit called Skreened renewed its commitment to ethical practice, issuing this statement:
1. Ethically made – inside and out. We start with only American Made garments. That’s our baseline for treating workers at the beginning of the process with respect. Money is our way to vote our conscience daily and [...]
Pssst. If you enter the coupon code “fireworks” at checkout when you buy one of our ethically-made-in-the-USA t-shirts from Skreened, you’ll get 15% off the cost. That comes out to $3-$4 off per shirt, a pretty good deal. The coupon will work through the entire month of July.
Zazzle is a website that allows you not only to design a buy a shirt for yourself, but also to sell the shirts you design to other people. As far back as 2006, we at Irregular Times have been asking the people who run Zazzle to let people who want to sell shirts there the [...]
I don’t work for American Apparel. I just think that they’re doing a great service by selling stuff they make in the USA – helping me to make an ethical choice in dressing my kids and myself. [...]
For us here at Irregular Times, selling shirts is like licking fingers: we like to know where they’ve been. We sell shirts made by American Apparel because the company is transparent and reliably regulated when it comes it its workforce and compensation practices. Most apparel producers work very hard to hide the information about their [...]
There’s more than a little hyperbole out there about changes to the Terms of Service by the print-on-demand merchandiser CafePress, and some of it is more than a bit hypocritical. Buzz Edition tweets, “Artists get shafted by @cafepress Slave labor was abolished…Right?” and Lavender Liberal blogs:
If you recoil at the idea of buying a [...]
CafePress has done something right, five times over.
Starting this week, the print-on-demand service has expanded its line one just one organic cotton sweatshop-free t-shirt from American Apparel, a unisex adult fitted t-shirt, by adding five more garments, each made sweatshop-free in the USA by American Apparel, each made with organic cotton. The new options [...]
Skreened, the only print-on-demand service in the known universe to sell shirts exclusively made in certifiably sweatshop-free conditions, has changes afoot. On March 1, the design and print shop is set to unveil a new website, the result of what the staff cryptically teases is a “makeover.”
What will we see? I don’t have a [...]
For about six years now, as a part of our plan to eat food we have sold t-shirts with liberal, progressive and anti-war messages on them via the print-on-demand service CafePress. While CafePress is not perfect by a long stretch, we consider it a pretty good company to work with because it expands choice, not [...]
