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.

    Nice job on doing the discharge printing rather than the crappy other (screen?) printing. Nice touch!

      Screen printing on a dark tee sometimes requires a base layer of white ink, with other layers piling up on top of that. With discharge they can get directly into the fabric. I looooove the process!

    Damn. These honestly look pretty hot! With the advent of those T-Shirt-A-Day sites, I’ve developed quite a t-shirt addiction. Thanks for helping fuel it further, Android and Me!

    This is a probably the best Android site out there as far as updates and stuff about upcoming Android products goes, all the reviewers are great. I hope I win a shirt LOL!!

    • Angie Wimberly

      Glad you are happy here :)

  • WlfHart

    Awesome tees! Congrats to the winners.

  • hopscotchjunkie

    Ooh, those are *nice* shirts. Really can’t decide which I prefer; think it might just be the ‘communitee’ by a narrow margin. Fingers crossed (I could do with more clothes in general, got an excitable kitten here who delights in putting his claws through everything).

    As an aside, is anyone else having problems with the input fields on this page? Using SwiftKey 3 beta & Chrome on a One X, and it’s jumping around all over the shop. Total nightmare. Keyboard or browser to blame?

    • http://www.ndroidgamers.com B2L

      It does the same thing for me using SwiftKey 3, and Opera browser. I’m thinking it may be a SwiftKey issue since I don’t remember the problem using SwiftKey X.

  • erikiksaz

    Hey the finalized design on the right looks great. I truthfully thought the concept art was just going to look like a bunch of alien dongs =p

  • classic_hero

    Awesome! I could always use more shirts

  • honourbound68

    I need one of these to wear in front of my iSheep friends

    I love the new “Communitee” shirt. I still rock “the Underdog” shirt, which is one of my faves.
    I might have to pick up a few more Android shirts.

    the oldschool CM mascot >>>>> the new one.
