The Return of Fake Band Shirts

posted by Jason Boyett

In the top navigational bar, you’ll see a link to FakeBandShirts.com, a little t-shirt site I launched a couple years ago. It sells only four t-shirt designs, each of which I created and each of which are the logos of fake bands with awesome fake names. Because, in my opinion, hipsters like to own gear from obscure bands, and you can’t get more obscure than not existing.

It’s a brilliant concept, if I do say so myself. And I do. Often.

Because of the way I set up my initial store with my supplier/distributor, I was having to sell the shirts at more than $20 in order to make any profit. That’s too expensive. So I shut down that store in January and have been sitting on the shirts ever since. (Not literally, because that would be totally weird, and after a few weeks, quite unsanitary.) The shirts have been boxed up in my closet.

But not any more. The box is open! I simplified everything and am now selling Fake Band Shirts again through Big Cartel, which means you can now buy the shirts using your PayPal account (or credit card) and you can save a lot of money: each shirt is just $15.99, plus shipping. Just in time for Christmas!

Anyway, I wanted to let you know. This is a limited offer because honestly I don’t have a whole lot of shirts left, and I’m not sure if I want to reprint them. But I do want to sell the ones I have, and I want you to buy them. Because I like you.

"Fake Band Shirts: cool tees of bands so indie they don't exist." (Brilliance.)I know where my next paycheck is going.

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process. Today I return the favor -- sort of -- via an interview at his blog, Introverted Church. We talk about how my introverted personality has impacted my faith and doubt, and how the extrov

Harold Camping: "Invisible Judgment Day"
When the rapture didn't occur as predicted on May 21, 2011, Harold Camping had a few options. Here is how he could have responded to the failed prediction, in descending levels of crazy: 1. He could announce that he was wrong. This is the most reasonable option and was therefore unexpected. I wou

The Phases of Writing (Adam McHugh)
If you've ever felt out of place among all the exciting, expressive, emotional enthusiasm of a contemporary church service...or an evangelist's demands that you need to constantly be sharing your faith boldly to strangers...if it simply wipes you out to be surrounded by people all the time,  then y
