Contest closed: New Android shirts coming soon, win them now before they go on sale


Once in a blue moon, we like to release limited edition tees. We’re nearing one of those times. Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 24, we’re going to release a special pair of shirts at get.androidandme.com, but before that, we’re giving you a chance to win them.

Update: We’ve announced winners. Thanks for playing!

To win, send us a tweet using the tweetbox below. Feel free to change up the message, just make sure you include @androidandme and the hashtag #Android, since that’s how we’ll be tracking the entries.

In addition to a chance to win, everyone that tweets will receive a coupon code for $1 off any tee order. It’s not much, but we figured it might be a fun way to soften the sting of losing yet another online contest.

The Shirts

Each design has a unique story. The Android crowd shirt, titled Communitee, came from a contest we did waaaay back in September. We had readers submit loose concepts and this tee is the final outcome. It’s an all-over chest print, covering the entire front of the tee with a crowd of robot characters.

The other tee, Throwback, is a nod to the recently-replaced-but-not-forgotten CyanongenMod mascot. We first printed this tee in ultra-limited numbers (like a few dozen) for the man himself, Steve Kondik, at the Big Android BBQ. Of course the shirts were gone in seconds and folks have been asking for a reprint ever since. This time around we went with a retro treatment since this skater is now officially retired.

Like always, these are discharge printed on American Apparel tees. Discharge is a type of screen printing where the ink actually replaces the tee’s color, rather than sit on top of it. The result is a ridiculously soft print, perfect for maximum comfort and durability (no cracking graphic after too many washes!).

The art might also look familiar, as it’s done by long-time, friend-of-the-site Ray Frenden. He’s done a few tees for us in the past and he certainly didn’t disappoint this time around.


To enter to win, simply tweet with a mention to @androidandme and the hashtag #Android. We’ll be tracking tweets with RowFeeder using those specific flags. If you use the tweetbox in this very post, you’ll receive a $1 coupon code good on any get.androidandme.com purchase. Tomorrow at 10am, we’ll announce four winners and open the store. This contest is open to all users.
