Pixeltees - use a (shockwave) editor to produce t-shirt designs. The low resolution, restricted palette and video-game connotations give interesting restrictions - a lot of designs are terrible, but some are pretty neat.

only found this last night - apologies if it's been around for ages - but since then i've spent hours working on designs. be warned - once the editor wouldn't save an image, so i reckon it's best to save early and often.

As far as I can see, this is no different than trying to make a picture using Paint program that comes with Windows. Same restricted palette, etc.

I was hoping the site would take the drawing and sort of "fix it up", giving it more of that GameBoy look.

It doesn't, and I haven't the time nor talent to do the work.
Dammit! What good are computers?

Like the idea of the site, but their "commissions" for the sellers aren't very attractive.

And who tracks how many shirts are actually sold ?

if someone bought one of my designs, i'd be happy just to know it was out there. i guess i'd start worrying if sales exploded into the thousands, but if i thought that was likely i wouldn't be pootling round on that site anyway...

Rap Troll's of Austin is the best Pixeltees shop by far.

it's a shame the program doesn't have a function that lets you paste from a elsewhere.

Kmel, that Rap Troll's of Austin shop is the funniest thing I've seen in weeks. I think this one is probably my favorite. But would I actually wear it?

Crunchland: You can paste from the clipboard, using shift-V instead of ctrl-V.
