    The Jackhammer Jill shirt could really use a real jackhammer sound effect to go along with the graphic. The white on black is especially awesome/headache inducing.

    Ooooh, the Jackhammer Jitters shirt is badasssss. I’ll be risking getting the fanboy tag (I own and LOVE the ol’ Deathbot shirt), but I think I’m going to get one anyway.

    Just try to convince me that your readers don’t already damn well own more than enough friggin’ t-shirts.

    You will fail.

      Some of us are so physically active that we tear the shoulders and armpits out of our tee shirts and need a constant supply of new ones.

    Thanks, all!!! We appreciate it!

    please tell me the jackhammer shirt doesn’t have a URL on the back, or the sleeve, or wherever. i like to roll unnoticed.

    Speaking of Jill, the one at the bottom of the page jackhammers when you mouse over her.

    I like the shirts but the models scare me. It’s like “HEROINE JUNKIES LOVE OUR SHIRTS, GET YOURS NOW!”

  8. David Pescovitz says:

    The Jackhammer Jitters shirt doesn’t have a logo printed anywhere on it.

    And the shirts are 100 percent cotton, made in the USA, and printed in California. No sweatshops.

    LIGHTBENDER: If you’ve seen a heroin junkie, you know they look nothing like that.

    Need a Boing Boing unicorn chaser shirt.

    Oh, heroinE junkies…

    I’m a heroinE junkie – Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Catwoman, Nancy Drew, Tank Girl… Can’t get enough of ‘em.

    “How have you missed the innumerable no-they’re-not-made-in-sweatshops discussions?”

    Must have missed those, someway somehow. Sorry!


    Thanks David – appreciate the information. It’s good to hear you’re keeping production and printing local and labour friendly. It’s a shame, though, that you’re using regular ol’ cotton, when there are vastly more environmentally friendly, and pretty darn comfortable, alternatives available. Maybe you could ask the Gama-Go guys to look into bamboo or hemp fibres or something?

    Anyway – cheers for the information, and I hope you don’t take my eco-badgering the wrong way (I abandoned Threadless cos I just couldn’t justify it any more…!).

  13. David Pescovitz says:

    Yes, Unicorn Chaser shirt is definitely in the stars.

  14. David Pescovitz says:

    The last batch of t-shirts we did with GAMA-GO used organic cotton blank shirts. Maybe we’ll do another one of those soon! Thanks!

    Pffft, I bought the Boingboing hoodie when it came out for over a $100. Less than a month later it went down like $40. Great quality but man, what a pisser.

    My advice, wait a month before ordering.

    I still wear my old original Kata Sutra Tshirt from time to time!

    But there will likely never be a re-issue of the 2Fresh Tshirt from Beyond Cyberpunk!

  17. failix says:

    Perfect! I was just looking for new t-shirts! :D

  18. JamesProvost says:

    You going to have these at Maker Faire?

  19. Bitgod says:

    Always like the classic logo. I swear my old shirt was black on white though. I like the idea of the jackhammer print…but it makes my eyes hurt. :)

  20. 13strong says:

    Couple of quick questions!

    1) What are these made of? Regular old incredibly-bad-for-the-environment cotton, or something a bit friendlier? Would be nice to see Boing Boing using something both a bit better for the environment and a bit more forward-looking – bamboo fibre maybe?

    2) Where and how are these made / printed? We talking sweatshops in Bangladesh, or sweatshops in the US? Again, would be nice if Boing Boing merch, to reflect the wonderfulness of its creators, could be as wonderful itself – let’s have some labour standards and not too many air-miles?

    Still, cool stuff – especially like the Jackhammer Jitters T. Sweet.

    I like the GamaGo stuff and actually have 3 of their hoodies. Sizes run terribly small — I’m a L in an Eddie Bauer or Gap t-shirt, with plenty of room to spare, while a Gama Go XL is uncomfortable snug. Just a warning to those of you not in possession of a model’s physique.

    For Gopod’s sake, BRING BACK the RIOT NRRRD T-SHIRT!

  23. David Pescovitz says:

    JIMMWICH @19, I don’t even have one of those! :(

    And Rushkoff @20, I agree that we should revive the Riot Nrrrd and Modem Grrrl designs!!

  24. David Pescovitz says:

    BITGOD @3, The original BB shirt was also available in black ink on white shirt. We may do this one in that colorway too if people really want it! Thanks.

  25. aelfscine says:

    The new jackhammer shirt is pretty righteous, I gotta say.

    And the Get Illuminated logo looks like something you’d see in Rapture, advertising the latest plasmid. Not that that’s a bad thing! :)

    I Just tried ordering a couple of shirts up here in the Great Green North. To make a long story short the Gama-Go rep who answered their phone suggested I email with my contact info. She will work around the fact that their website says: “Sorry, there are no available shipping methods for your location.” for a perfectly good Canadian address….

    Their 1-888 number is U.S.A. only BTW.

  27. Shannon says:

    These all look GREAT. I really like the classic logos, and the related look-and-feel of the site. The zine pedigree that these evoke is a valuable part of its appeal. I’m especially reminded of this today because of BBG’s new decision to go with a charmless generic tech blog theme (which made me a bit sad).

  28. techbuzz says:

    Wow, I just moved right next door to the Gama Go SF store this weekend. I walk by the storefront almost daily. I’ll have to go in and look around tomorrow.

  29. sambeckwith says:

    Does it really cost $30 to have a $24 T-shirt shipped from the USA to Canada?

    umm…very cool, but shouldn’t the jitter on the jackhammer Jill shirt be vertical, not horizontal?
