Hello. It's been a long time since Glow In The Dark was available. Are you planning to bring those great shirts back again?

It has been a while. I've sent a note to the shirt team.

So the update is that we can no longer print them internally so we won't have any in the near future. We may look at sourcing them externally.

Maybe because the dangers of inks containing small amounts of radium?
Ingestion or inhaling these can prove to be a problem.
Not sure if modern glow in the dark still use radium...

NAH, just mushed up lightning bugs. Been harder to come by since child labors laws have been throttling the lightning bug catchers market. Adults just can't catch them as well without smushing them, then you'd get PETA after you for not euthanizing them humanly. it's a complicated issue.

You can find my shirts for sale HERE or THERE!

Heh!

More seriously, it's not that the ink is afoul of any EPA regulations but rather, a shirt.woot production issue.

Like when the dye sublimation shirts were offered, batch order and contact out the production? I wonder if Ramy is interested in working as shirt.woot's print shop ...

(GITD colors, hooray!)

No.1 rule of online apparel purchases: SIZING CHARTS! Unsure about classic and fitted options at shirt.woot? Comments on the new pricing? Read more about that here.

Careful, throwing that name around. IT might be like a beeteljuice thing. Then walmazan would lose out on some prints.

It's more of an equipment issue, I believe.

Wences had a couple prints there already. Other artists: Boots, Fishbiscuit, Spiritgreen, Ocho, Fable, DoOomcat, Naolito, NBlottie, queenmob, wirdou, Jimiyo, and maybe a few more because it's been 4 years already and I don't remember everything that goes on in non-shirt.woot sites.

ETA: BootsBoots was their first guest artist. I bought three copies.

Since you "can't" print them, does this mean we can approach the artists and see if we can get them on other site/producer?

That's crap, been waiting for some time.

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, no.  We still own the rights.

HOWEVER, we have found a way for the monkey's to make GITD. You'll notice that the upcoming derby allows GITD entries.  At the same time as those derby winners print, we will be running some of old GITD prints in a side event.  

Please note that we don't run GITD events very often and the designs do not often go into our catalog...so order your fill.
