Red Bubble is an “art gallery and creative community” with t-shirts that are “designed by your neighbors”. You can submit or buy art on wall art, posters, t-shirts and greeting cards. Members can join groups and communicate with those who have similar interests. There really is some amazing stuff on the site and lots of features to talk about but today I really only talking about a recent t-shirt I ordered.
You can browse over 700 different t-shirts from artists all around the world.
I found a random shirt I liked
And guess what arrived in my mailbox?
Inside the envelope was a t-shirt rolled up and held together with a sticker label.
Here is a view from the side. As you can see there are more goodies rolled up inside the t-shirt.
Inside was sales propaganda and a set of chopsticks. Some might think its “cute” but personally I find it wasteful.
So here is a closeup of the sticker label that held the t-shirt in a sushi roll that included the designer and design name.
And finally, below is the t-shirt “Surgery” that I ordered. Sorry about the differences in color my photographs were not very good this time. The shirt is American Apparel and quite nice. It is really hard to tell Red Bubble print quality when buying just a simple black text t-shirt but it looked good for what it was.
My favorite part of the Red Bubble order/experience is how the recognize who the artist was and the name of the t-shirt. It would be great if they also added a link to the artists gallery to further give them the credit they deserve. Go check out Red Bubble for yourself and let us know what you think.
