Aww, they like us. (DIY HAD T-shirts)


Over on the Ben Heck forums, moderator G-Force made his own Hack-A-Day T-shirt. I dunno guys, do we need to start selling them? In the past, our swag has been by give away only. Thanks [Marshall]

It’s been a couple of exhausting weeks since the deadline for the Design Challenge. I’m going to finish up going through the entries and we should have a winner sometime next week.

  1. I think you guys should definitely sell t-shirts. Not only would I want to score some hacker swag, but what better place for the proceeds of my t-shirt shopping to go than Hackaday?

  2. i’ve been secretly hoping that you would start selling tshirts for a couple of months now. i would make one, but fabric isn’t my preferred hacking medium…i would definitely buy one though.

  3. how about some site like cafepress.com? it’s easy, cheap and I’m sure allot of people would buy hack a day shirts. I would definitely get one!

  4. kyle – the obvious answer is you need to make a fiberglass t-shirt with a copper logo on it! might be a little itch, though… Maybe your preferred hacking medium isn’t pc boards, but hopefully something better. :-)

  5. john – the quality of cafepress s**ks a*s. jinx appears to have nice quality, but hackaday won’t earn a penny from jinx.

  6. CafePress was also a pain for us europeans last time I looked at it.
    How’s about http://www.spreadshirt.net or use more than one supplier.
    Although in the hack-a-day spirit I think people should be rolling their own, maybe using some sort of hackery download from the site, like the postscript for printing the logo as a perl or matlab script.
    How’s about a hack-a-day wearables competition?

  7. screw tshirts. I want higher-quality swag. How about some HAD golf shirts or sweatshirts? Us “real” engineers want to show off, too.

  8. Hey, Im from Gremany and like Your site much!
    I think would buy a t-shirt too. But please tell me the shipping-prices to Germany!

    Greetings from Hannover!

  9. morcheeba (5)- i like your style! yeah, it might be a little itchy, but if thats what it takes to show off my had love, then i think i owe it to myself (and the community) to turn on the mixing tank. still wouldnt mind a nice cotton one though…

  10. I would buy a tshirt or even a hoodie. It would be a good way to get some money for hosting the site.

    Don’t use Cafepress or Jinx though. Something of decent quality and so you can get some money from it.

  11. Well in the true spirit of hackaday, someone should come up with a high-tech but low-budget way to laser burn the skull-and-wrench pattern into fabric, or better yet, your own skin.

    but seriously, don’t sell them, give a cool hack on how to make them.
