I've never read any of the Twilight books nor have I seen the Twilight movies so I'm basically disregarding any mention of "Team Jacob" or "Team Edward" and continuing with my day to day life. However, it did give me an idea for a t-shirt a couple weeks ago but I had been too busy to work on it until now.

While I would decline choosing either Edward or Jacob there's one person I would would always choose to be a fan of...Santa Claus! That's right, the jolly fat man himself! How could you not be a fan of someone who, year after year, flies to your home and pops down your chimney to leave you all kinds of cool gifts? I don't see how you couldn't. So, just in time for Christmas, I created a t-shirt for all those Santa fans out there who aren't ashamed to show who they're really backing: "Team Claus"!

Check it out and buy your "Team Claus" t-shirt, sweatshirt, hoodie or other item today at Divisibleby1.com!

Thanks!

I apologize that I haven't really updated anything in a while but now that I am temporarily unemployed (long, annoying story) I may have more time on my hands to work on things.

To start off, here's a new-ish shirt design that's pretty simple and has actually been hidden, awaiting a release that never came, until now. It is Ninja In Training - Invisibility. I know the last few releases were all about Ninjas but, what can I say, I was on a ninja kick for a little while back there.The idea behind the shirt is that the text "Ninja in Training" is faded, blurry and missing the "i"s because the wearer (hopefully you who are reading this post) is trying to master the ninja's art of invisibility but hasn't quite got it so they aren't totally invisible. I thought it was funny when I made it so I hope at least one other person out there does too. :-D

So, enjoy the new design and look for more coming soon! Oh yeah, did you notice the change to the store layout? To keep things simple I got rid of the categories and will just put all new designs on one page. That way, you can see everything that's available without trying to figure out if the design you want was in "The Kitchen Sink" or "Popular Culture". New designs will be listed first and, starting with the next release, will have a distinctive look so you'll know which ones are new.

'Till next time, make mine Marvel!

This week's new design is closely related to one of our prior designs, Respect the Ninja - Rising Sun. Today, however, we bring you Respect the Ninja - Kanji. As you can see it's fairly similar except for the background item. The characters behind the ninja are the kanji used to write the native Japanese word for practitioners of ninjitsu.
If you really like your ninjas and mostly like the Rising Sun shirt but, say, aren't too fond of the color red then you'll probably (hopefully) like this version of the ninja theme. If not, well, we've got more stuff coming so stick around.

Ninja's out!

So, if you have been watching my blog and site you probably noticed that I forgot to update the New Stuff image last week and there is no new t-shirt today. Well, I've decided (after realizing that I have no time because of recently becoming engaged, hopefully starting a new job soon and general family things) that I'm going to make T-Shirt Tuesday a bi-weekly thing. I may kick it back up to weekly later but for right now every two weeks seems easier to manage. Hope you understand.

I love so many things about Japan. I love consumer technology and since so much of the best stuff gets seen and used in Japan before anywhere else, I've always been envious of Japanese users. Japanese cinema and Anime have always been among my favorite things to watch when I had some free time. And, who doesn't enjoy a good Godzilla flick?

You know another awesome thing that comes from Japan? Ninjas. Those super stealthy, expertly trained, martial artist assassins that have been around since at least the 14th century. Ask around and you're likely to see why they are so cool. In fact, I like them so much that I've made some t-shirt designs featuring, that's right, ninjas!

This weeks new design for T-Shirt Tuesday is called Ninja Respect (Sun) and features the striking silhouette of a ninja in front of a representation of the rising sun flag formerly used by the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy. Beneath the silhouette is the text "Respect the ninja". It's a pretty cool design that will look good on anyone so, if you like your ninjas like you like your men/women*, go on and check it out!

* I have no idea what I meant by that. It just came out on its own...that's what she said?

It's T-Shirt Tuesday! Time for a new shirt release!

Today we have a design for the millions and millions of fans of one of the most popular games in the world, and one of the most difficult games to master, chess. Here is "Prepare to be Pawn3d!". I was on Chess.com last week and saw that they have over 550,000 members and there were thousands of games being played online at the time. I tried my hand against the computer in their chess applet and got spanked...guess I need to practice.

The design is pretty cool (I think, at least). It has a sort of cascading front row of Pawns in front of a King and Queen with the text "Prepare to be Pwn3d!" written above. I like that it will definitely attract chess players because your Pawns can be so, so useful in a good game and can help attack and defend as seasoned players well know. I also like the text because "Pwn3d" can be read/translated as either "Owned" and can apply to more than just chess but it can also be looked at as saying "Pawned", which is more directly related to chess "ownage", one could say.

However you interpret it, we hope you like it. If you get one for yourself or for anyone else we'd love to see a photograph of our shirt being worn. I personally would love to see this worn by people playing chess. :D If you do have a picture of yourself wearing the shirt, e-mail it to us at feedback@divisibleby1.com and we'll post it on the site for all to see.

I am excited to announce that today, April 7th, is the inaugural T-Shirt Tuesday.

..."What the heck is T-Shirt Tuesday?", you're probably wondering. Well, I am starting an initiative to release at least one new shirt design per week and that release will happen every Tuesday (hence the name). I'm going to try to keep it up for as long as I can (...twss) so we'll see how it goes. I've got enough in the hopper to last a good while so it should be fun. Now, on to today's new shirt!

For my first T-Shirt Tuesday design I'm referencing one of my favorite television shows, The Office, and everyone's favorite Michael Scott line, "That's what she said". If you don't know what The Office is I have to imagine you have been living under a rock. If you watch The Office, however, I hope you'll appreciate the shirt. The front has Michael Scott's immortal line and the back is a list of situations and phrases in which placement of "That's what she said" would be abso-friggin'-lutley hilarious. I like it and have one myself but I've not been so bold as to wear it to my own office yet. Maybe if I hit the lottery I can wear it on my quitting day. I can dream...

Oh yeah, plus I've got a second version of the design slightly modified with a bonus phrase for Cleveland Cavs fans! I'm pretty sure Austin Carr never intended for that phrase to be followed by TWSS.So, enjoy the new shirt and remember to sign up for the e-mail updates to keep up with future T-Shirt Tuesday releases.

With millions of t-shirts for sale both on and off of the web you either have to be very lucky or have a very distinct product for the shopping public to take notice of your designs and buy or recommend your shirts. There are a number of t-shirt ranking sites that are just a Google search away but wheredidyougetthatTshirt.com is now offering a new alternative. As a free service, users may create an account and then post a picture and description of the t-shirt(s) that they want listed. Upon approval, the shirt(s) will appear on the site and can be found via category listing and keyword search. If a visitor clicks on the thumbnail of your design they will be shown a full page description complete with a larger preview image, a link to your website and other select information. To buy, they just click through to your site and make the purchase as they normally would.

The site was just launched in January by Scott Dowell and Scott Hamel of Richmond, Va, and in just 2 months they have over 600 shirts in their listings and appear to be growing every day. If you are looking for another avenue to market your own t-shirts or just looking for cool t-shirts to buy for yourself then wheredidyougetthattshirt.com looks like a good place to go. For more information head over to their website or read this article from PRWeb.

That's right, as of Monday, March 9, 2009, DivisibleBy1.com has officially launched! T-shirt lovers everywhere, rejoice! Ok, that's probably a huge overstatement, but at least I'm happy to have it go live. That's not all, though. Along with the CafePress shop I've also given it its very own blog at divisibleby1.blogspot.com (which you know already because you're reading this...) so you can keep up with new designs as I post them, designs that I'm working on, general t-shirt news and the occasional t-shirt giveaway (I've wanted to do that for so long).

I've got a fair number of designs in the shop as of now, some of which are among the first CP designs I made a couple years ago. I still have a lot of old and newer designs that I need to update and migrate from my CEGPhoto shop into this new shop so expect the number of designs to increase alot in the next few weeks as I get them finished. I've also got an ever growing list of ideas and doodles for new shirt designs that I want to get started on so I expect to be a little busy in the weeks to come. Of course, I'll post updates here to keep you abreast of what's going on.

So, enough words for now. Go check out what I've got so far and be sure to look around at everything else CafePress has to offer too.
