This caffiends needed more mugs. Like the Coffee level critical, I would of loved that one.

And I don't want either of the V-neck designs. BOOO!

Now can I scrape up $35 for a hoody before these are gone....*goes to look at budget*

My ex did that for a few things, but most of his comics were handled very carefully (wash hands before reading, dry completely, never opened and laid flat, etc), then bagged and boxed.

Bleah. I don't get collectibles.

I got one of the LW hoodies and the weight of the fabric is comparable to a light cotton slub cardigan -- good for indoors if the AC's set too high, or on a cooler night (but since I'm in Texas, that doesn't really exist atm xD).

If you're curious about sizing info, I usually wear AA WS/WM or AA/Anvil MS and I ordered a MS. They're printed on Alternative Apparel, which in my experience, tends to have lighter weight (read: thinner) clothing. The hood itself is on the smaller side, like AA's early women's hoodies, but I do like the fit. Pretty stretchy, fits over a men's shirt, doesn't really make me look frumpy when zipped up. The sleeves hit just above my fingertips which is fine 'cause I like longer sleeves (I'm 5'3"). I'm not sure if it's worth $35, but I do like mine *shrug*

I may be able to do some photo comparisons between LW hoodie and AA/Anvil shirts later

The one Woot shirt I have been waiting forever to re-print is http://shirt.woot.com/offers/now-thats-just-overpriced. This sale seems like a perfect time to put it back out there (or did the Seattle-based Evil Empire halt future production?).

The design size for Caffeine Power Up Lightweight Hoodie is listed as:


Placement (Front): Right Side
Printed Size (Front): needed

Placement (Back): Centered
Printed Size (Back): needed

Yup, information about the print size is still needed! It would be great if woot could correct that.

Caffeine sensitivity here; even without it, my heart skips a beat to see I'm not missing out on anything and saving some $ this week. ;)

My wife said the same thing. Then about a year ago when things got REALLY bad I pulled 3 books out of my collection and sold them, covering rent for the month, and food for the week.

She has stopped commenting about my collections.

I do this with toys (one to keep, one to play with.) For collectible comics (silver age books, etc.), I tend to preserve the original issues; trade paperbacks + digital downloads are for re-reading and sharing with friends.

Mavyn wrote:Bleah. I don't get collectibles.

Depends on the collectible. I don't quite understand the "mint in the box" type of collectibles, but I have a few things that I collect, mostly decorative items, that I really enjoy. For example, I collect pins from my sport, the Olympics, and places where I've traveled for my sport. I think that the "thrill of the hunt" is part of the fun of collectibles: tracking one's collection, keeping an eye out for an addition, scoring an addition at a great bargain price - that part of it can be lots of fun. With pins, trading can be *tons* of fun. However, for me, my "collection" of pins represents memories, not financial worth. (For those of you whose collections are actually worth significant sums of money, please make sure you're covered by insurance!)

I'm considering getting one Binge and one Nevermore mugs as shirt.woot "collectibles," to use either as decorative items or as super-cool pencil cups: more expensive than a purely utilitarian pencil cup from Ikea or a dollar store, but one that would add some enjoyment into my life - and that's worth some money to me. If I wouldn't enjoy a "collectible," it wouldn't be worth any amount of money to me.

I know this is has been brushed on, but what point-size type will Nevermore be printed on a mug?

My rule of thumb is "there is no point if it's under 9-point."

Yeah, so there's that...

Given the facts that:
A) A point is 1/72 of an inch
2) The design is 3" tall
III) There are 45 lines on the shirt.

We have 15 lines per inch, or 15 lines per 72 points. That gives 4.8 point. Which, since the graphic is a graphic and not text, is probably about right.

Side note: The image on the screen is actually BIGGER than the final Printed image. lol

How do the lightweight hoodies fit? I normally wear medium to large shirts (large from woot typically). If I order a large one, will it be shorter than the shirt, as the sizing charts lead me to believe?

I packed Morning Powerup for a long weekend trip, and openly bemoaned my lost opportunity to purchase Coffee Levels Critical. Yay! Can never have too much coffee or tees.

And yes, I agree, it should be printed on a coffee cup, perhaps in thermally-responsive ink.

Tempted to pull the trigger on the Morning Powerup V-neck shirt but the description says the artwork is 5" x 5.2" and that seems a little large for the placement.

In for my 3rd and 4th coffee levels critical shirts (sorry other shirts, literally my favorite of all time). 1st one died a year or two ago....

A major complaint, however:

I love coffee-levels-critical because it is a subdued pocket design. All Woot hawks these days are obnoxious full-shirt "in-your-face" designs... can we not get a little bit of restraint for those of us who like unconventional t-shirts with a bit of understatement and subtlety?

Any info on the depth of the V-neck? I haven't ordered a V-neck here before, and I'm a busty gal so I fall between sizes in the men's/unisex tees.

Sorry, that's actually just brown-sugar-water. Real tea doesn't come with ice or sugar.

Not that I don't like drinking brown-sugar-water sometimes; TX is way too hot for real tea most of the time.

Yea, but no one outside the south would put southern sweet tea in the same category as tea.

Also, on the previous topic in this thread. I bag and back my comics (new 52), but just because I like things to remain nice. I don't really care about their value. Same reason I wash all my printed shirts inside out and don't crumple them up and toss them in a drawer =)

On the actual topic of this thread, I'm really considering getting the zombie mug. But, I'm worried that it's going to look like someone put a brown sticker on a white mug. Why can't those be printed on brown (or black) mugs?
