Another Filmography Tshirt for the ’70s


Its been a while, but we are finally following up on our ’80s film collection with the second in the series. Working again with Timo Meyer, this time it is the ’70s. A decade that is easily one of the most creative high points in the US film industry. 20 films are featured in all — from critically acclaimed landmark films to what came to be known as the very first Summertime blockbusters.

weLoaded Numbered for Solving


A blog named yesbutnobutyes.com surprised us once and posted a numbered version of one of our designs and the community had at it with tons of comments. Since then we have been making officially numbered versions of our art so that people can do the same thing in style. Yesbutnobutyes has since passed away, but it still remains on the interwebs and you can find some of the old posts with a simple Google search. Grab this numbered image of our newest design — weLoaded and post it to your blog or facebook. Maybe you will get a whole bunch of people to be totally unproductive today.

Custom Celebrity Apes Tee for MailChimp


Ben at MailChimp has been a great customer for Chop Shop over the years and we insist that MailChimp is the best email newsletter service out there. So when we decided last spring that the next pop-icon tee would focus on famous simians… we knew we had to let Ben know. He wanted Freddie (their logo/mascot) to be in the design somehow, but we were hesitant to include a corporate entity in a design that is intended to be about pop-culture icons. So we ditched Blip and dropped Freddie in for a special run exclusively printed for MailChimp with custom label included. 


See their recent blog post about their plans for weVolve the MailChimp edition.
