Shirt.Woot has decided to reprint a special run of orange tees, once well loved by t-shirt fans at the site! What does that mean for MY fans? That's easy: Oh BURNED!!! gets a special print run from:
October 21st, 2013 to October 28th, 2013.
Yep. That's just one week to pick up my most well known print to date.
And why? Well, a few months after my design won the contest it was entered in, it showed up on Nickelodeon's iCarly show. I wrote about it when fellow t-shirt fans contacted me and let me know they spotted my tee on the program. At that time in Shirt.Woot's history, they never reprinted designs that fell from the top 27 list, referred to as "THE RECKONING", when a shirt's sales numbers dipped under the top 27 on the chart in a week.
Until this year, when the Woot staff decided to start offering their back catalog to customers again printed as DTG prints to keep the designs in rotation for artists, and still allow them to make money off them. They've also expanded the site to include special print long-sleeve tees, hoodies, aprons, bags and most recently, sketchbooks (and soon to be released for the holidays: greeting cards). Unfortunately, Woot had eliminated a few of their t-shirt colors: like the controversial orange tee. The love-hate relationship of the color has always caused some artists to push themselves to create on the color JUST to create conversation. The same can be said of Oh BURNED!!! It's fun. A little sadistic. And it's hilarious when you see the strife in all the marshmallow faces. Putting it on orange was the appropriate icing on the cake.
Shirt.Woot doesn't plan to keep the orange tees on the storefront, but they wanted to offer a compromise to those who feel the designs that were printed on the color still deserve to be purchased: They're also offering the selected prints on sale this week on red. After the week of sales, they will continue on as red tees only, to allow fans to still get the design they love, but on a shirt color they'll have on a regular basis. It's a great compromise, in my opinion. I feel my fans deserve it. iCarly fans deserve it. Marshmallow burning fans deserve it. :)
So check out the print selections below, and also, as a special find, a NEW photo I've discovered of actor Jerry Trainor (Spencer Shay of iCarly) wearing my tee on the show.
