"One Shirt" Design Discussion

The “One Shirt” was sold to friends and family during the beta test. It is a number 1 made up of 100 t-shirts to commemorate our first design for sale on the site. It was designed by me.

All the other designs will have their own “New Shirt Reminder” post that will serve as a place to discuss the design. The “One Shirt” will never have such a post, so this will serve as place for discussion for the “One Shirt.”

Featured Designer: Ben Chlapek

Welcome: The 200 Nipples Blog

Welcome to the 200 Nipples Blog. It is the source for the latest news and events going on at 200Nipples.com: sellers of killer t-shirts from $1 to $100.

I’m Wade and I will be doing most of the writing on this blog. Stick around and I’ll keep you posted on new designs, whatever else is going on in our world, and how it may or may not affect you.

How to get your design printed on a 200 Nipples T-Shirt...

You want to be part of the magic, eh? Sweet. We want you to be part of it, too. Use our contact page to send us a link to your online portfolio, or Flickr account, or snail-mail us a hard copy of something you’ve done. Just provide us with a way to see your mad skills in illustration and design. If we’re pickin’ up what you’re puttin’ down, we’ll be in touch (You should provide us with a way to get in touch with you, as well.)

We are Kansas City based, so we’ll probably give preference to artists in KC, Lawrence or Columbia. We love it here, and we want to foster creativity ’round these parts. Having said that, if your sauce is hot enough, we’ll take you anyway.

We don’t expect you to give us free design work, but there’s more than a million ways to skin that cat, and we find different designers want different things anyway. (Glory, cash, beer.) So, we negotiate mutually satisfactory agreements with all of our designers, one on one. If you have a form, or an amount, of compensation in mind, tell us up front when you submit your stuff.

Good luck!
