It’s that time again where we scour the t-shirt blogosphere for the articles that we think deserve a second look. Hopefully for some of you, it will be the first time you have seen them. For the ones you have seen before, take another look….there’s inspiration in these posts:
- 101 October T-Shirts (Halloween, Monsters, Zombies and Ghouls) by Coty Gonzales

- To Share or Not to Share, That is the Question by Freelance Switch
This blog post from Freelance Switch is not solely focused on t-shirts. In fact, it doesn’t mention T-shirts at all.

We’ve all had questions related to copyrights, and this is a great resource for answers.
