Story time! Back in October, at the Big Android BBQ, we dropped a box of tees featuring a re-imagined CyanogenMod mascot at the feet of Steve Kondik. Let me rephrase that. We attempted to drop a box of tees, but I’m not sure it actually hit the ground before it was snatched empty. Immediately we were met with reprint requests. That day has finally arrived.

Even longer ago, back in September, we asked our community to submit tee ideas as part of a contest. The winner not only scored a free Galaxy Tab, but would have his winning concept knocked out by illustrator-to-the-stars Ray Frenden. The result is Communitee, a badass full-chest print featuring a crowd of familiar robots.

As always, these designs 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!).

These tees are available during a two-day pre-sale only period. The day after the sale, the tees will go into production in the exact numbers sold, creating a sealed edition. If you want to make absolutely sure you score either of these tees, you should buy them right now. You won’t be seeing them again anytime soon.

In our old lives, before we were full-time phone nerds, we spent our time playing hip designer printing weird tees and trying to make cool products. We really wanted to thank you guys for giving us the opportunity to dip back into our old love of making actual things.

    I didn’t want to be the first to ask, but any updates on who won?

    • http://clarklab.net Clark Wimberly

      We’ve got the four winners picked. I would’ve announced them sooner but I ran into some fun hiccups around 10am, haha.

      AKA winners announced soon!

  • magnum80

    Any idea how the sizes compare to Hollister/AF sizes? If I have L there, should I order L size here as well? Thanks!

      Overall, I think that AA tees fit a bit snug. I’ve never worn anything from Hollister, but I’d imagine their sizes run snug too.

    • magnum80

      Big thanks Wimberly & Wimberly for your help! I’ve ordered my shirts :).

  • Vance

    I tweeted yesterday, didn’t see the dollar coupon code though. Ready to buy now :)

  • Angie Wimberly

    You are always so nice! Thanks for the support :)

  • Vance

    Never got my coupon :( but tee shirt ordered!
    Also… I never got the tee shirt for joining the first Androidandme Google Hangout… I emailed Clark afterwards.. :)
    Thanks guys

  • hopscotchjunkie

    Ordered one of each; they’re just too great not too. Shipping costs to the UK are a little harsh though :(

    Still, even including the shipping it only works out around £15 each so I’m not going to complain too much. Bargain.

    • Vance

      :) gotta love that conversion rate! Mine cost $21 USD :) I remember buying Cuban cigars in London and I had to force myself not to convert what I was paying in pounds sterling to US dollars or I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy the smoke!

  • Michael Truong

    Wooo Hooo!! Can deliver to Australia. Got both t-shirts delivered for $48. Shipping is steep but I just got to have these. Can’t wait to receive my items. Keep up the good work boys!!

  • legolas00

    I would like to buy a tee, but I can’t view the site. I always get a page loading error..
    Is the site down?

    • legolas00

      Finally I could order one. I tried it in the morning of the next day and then it worked. :)

  • maedox

    The Android and Me one is a bit loud, but they’re both cool. I ordered the throwback. :D

  • halo0

    Any idea when these will ship?

  • John

    Hey guys! I was the winner of that contest, and I was told I would be getting a free shirt at some point. does that offer still stand?

  • John

    Woah, wasn’t logged in. My bad.

    I love how the shirt turned out though! Better than I could have ever imagined!

  • Marcos Soler

    I’m very glad I got in my order for a throwback shirt before the window closed. We there be an update or a new post in general, regarding when these ship out? Kinda anxious to get mine. :)

    • johnj

      I’ve got a Throwback coming my way too. Since an exact number of custom tees would be made after the order period, I’ll dare to guess two weeks out.

    • magnum80

      +1. Also happy I took the chance to order them. Can’t wait to get my hands on them. Any update? :)

  • zabooka

    I bought both shirts on 25/4, where are they? never go them yet

  • johnj

    It came today. And I do hope you ordered yours a little large, like someone already said the sizing is on the small side.

    Now I can brag about my rooted One X, waiting for the appropriate CyanogenMod!!

  • Matt L

    how did your’s come? USPS, UPS, Fedex? I’m super anxious now to get mine!

    • johnj

      Sorry it took so long to reply, been in the hosp since 5-12 just got out.

      Matt it was in the mailbox in a plastic bag type mailer, so I think it was usps. Not sure because I could tell what it was and I didn’t even look at the package before I tossed it.

  • george

    I ordered a few weeks ago and nothing yet. Any tracking info or idea when they should arrive for Canadian orders?

  • jordan

    i got my communitee shirt today and im really happy with it. anyone have any idea how many were ordered/made?

  • legolas00

    Mine has just arrived jet! I love it :)
    Thank you so much for this!

  • Pete

    Is it normal, that two T-Shirts doesn’t look the same? I mean one looks like on the picture, but the other one looks completely different from the colors.

  • asifnazir2012

    App stoer

  • Michael

    I got mine today.
    Ordered one of each, but got two of the communitee one.
    Typical when I liked the throwback-design better! -_-

  • merfy
