  1. the shirts are great! the color choices are very nice, and you included my favorite quote. one thing i would suggest for next time, if you decide to eventually release a new batch... consider putting the quote on the front, and the name of the website on the back of the shirt. just a suggestion!

  2. Karen,
    You might want to make that an active link, instead of a passive one. Nice job though!

  4. This is so funny. Even moreso that your husband is a mild-mannered Englishman. I'm totally posting this on Facebook to share.

  6. yes! Messenger bags, I've been searching for one and now I have several of my favorite quotes to choose from!! I officially love the wife of STM who was smart enough to see the marketablity of her husband's kooky, but adorable nighttime activities.
    A million thanks!

  10. Hey there C.R. Hayes:

    Can you explain to me, "You might want to make that an active link, instead of a passive one."

  11. wow, his sayings are even more hilarious when put in the context a t-shirt blurb. definitely getting one of these come payday.

  12. Can you get them on spreadshirt.net as well please? Then we can get them in Europe for a fraction of the postage (which nearly doubles the cost if we order from the US site!!)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Steve, thanks for the tip about Spreadshirt.net, I didn't realize! I'll look into it.

    Are they still cheaper, though, once you account for the weakness of the dollar? Or am I just too used to pound sterling?

  14. Found you through Blogs of Note, and, as a fellow sleep talker I think this blog is a great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Karen: Active link is one you can click. Means less frustration for us visitors so we don't have to copy&paste the link :).

    I'm not familiar with how blogspot.com does it but I suppose a simple bbcode tag might work:
    [url]http://sleeptalkinman.spreadshirt.com[/url]

    if that doesn't work, try this:
    [url="http://sleeptalkinman.spreadshirt.com"]link[/url]


    And about the t-shirts... I really think you should change the design. Like someone suggested here, make it so that the quote is on the front without any other graphic (or at least without the website advert) and if you have to, put the website on the back.

    Personally I'd prefer to only have the quote :).

    ReplyDelete
  16. Would look much nicer with just the quote on the front. I'm not a fan of walking around with "www" links on my clothes. There is nothing dorkier.

    ReplyDelete
  17. a great blog, made me laugh for ages!
    Who'd have thought that my car breaking down on the motorway on Sunday would lead me to this? If it wasn't for getting public transport due to having no car at the moment, I would never have seen the article in The Metro (free UK paper) mentioning this blog!

  19. Great job, WoSTM. Love the shirts! The Duck quote is my absolute fave. ;)

    It appears I'm in the minority, here, but I like the web address on the shirt. It gives a little context clue for the quotes (which otherwise, might appear--forgive me for saying-- a little stupid). Knowing they come from a "sleep talking man" is what makes them funny, IMO.

    And I realize that we, having bought the shirts in the first place, already know where the quotes come from, but what's the point in wearing a humorous T-shirt if you're the only one who gets it? It's a bit like laughing at your own joke...

    ReplyDelete
  20. These shirts are hilarious! I'm sad I live in the States or I'd order one.

  21. Hi Karen S-L

    Good point about the exchange rate. It works just under £20 including postage from the US. It's difficult to know how it would compare from the UK site as the available t-shirts aren't exactly the same descriptions/brands as the US ones.

    Love the site. Have been visiting for a couple of months now, but found out only the other day that STM apparently went to uni with a mate's boss.


    PS. Can we get
    "I've got a badger, a dog, a cat, and a sack. Now that I've got 'em you can fuck off. All mine."
    please.... :-)

  22. Hey are you doing any other designs in the tshirts as those ones are a bit well, ugly!
    Sorry! I was really looking forward to seeing them too as i think Adam is absolutely hilarious and i love his sayings!

    Laura

  23. I was very interested in buying a couple of shirts with his sayings but I won't buy these designs. I wanted just the saying in larger letters, with interesting/attractive lettering. I second the comment about how it should be the quote on the front and the website on the back, and also the comment about the current designs being too advertising-y and visually unattractive (I don't think they're ugly, they just look totally boring, and too small for people to read except from close up). Here is a website I suggest looking at for ideas as to what looks good on a tshirt: http://typetees.threadless.com
    Good luck!

    If it's a humorous Tshirt, it's a humorous tshirt, I think! For myself I'm not sure that knowing where if came from will make it funny for someone who doesn't find the quote alone funny - your mileage differs, of course - but for myself I think it's because they're absurd that I laugh at them, and they're absurd no matter who said them. Though the sleep talking does add to the funny, I agree!

    If I am wearing the Tshirt and people ask "what the hell? kittens? whiskers?" then I can say "oh it's a quote from this guy on the internet who sleep talks" :) easy!

    Although, now I think about it, I wouldn't mind if there was a little web address on the front if it was significantly smaller than the main text - small enough to not distract from the quote in any way. It's like the ZZZZZZZZZ that's on the Tshirts at the moment - they're terrible, IMO, they totally distract because they're the same colour and same text size as the quote as well as in the same bubble. The quote needs to be visually dominant on the Tshirt, which it is not at the moment.

    - Irised Pig, who has put too much thought into this, oh well, maybe it will be helpful!

  26. Hey guys. I appreciate all the feedback.

    We actually would like to have the www on the back as well, but it would make the printing more expensive, thereby pushing the cost up. We're definitely open to it, though, if we keep hearing that.

    ReplyDelete
  27. On the ZZZZZZZ: Oh whoops, they're not the same colour! I'm going mad! Well, they're not great either way, hahaha. All in my opinion though of course, others may love them! For me though the quotes are about kittens and legs and ducks and such, not about sleeping so ZZZZ is kinda random when you're talking about badger tickling.

    HELP I NEED AN INTERVENTION I CAN'T STOP COMMENTING @_@ AHHHHHH

    People, don't go to art school, you will find yourself compulsively analysing silly tshirts on the internet D:

    - I.Pig WHO IS GOING AWAY NOW D:

    Edit: Karen, I think the request was for the www to be ONLY on the back and not on the front :)

    All the best!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, yes, about the size of the logo. We actually had that a good bit smaller to start, and wanted it smaller. But, because of the printing process, no lines can be smaller than .06 inches. We had to keep bumping the logo up to meet those standards.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Goddamnit, it's going to cost me a fortune because, let's face it, I NEED every single design. Every last one of them. ♥

    ReplyDelete
  30. regarding: "Karen, I think the request was for the www to be ONLY on the back and not on the front :) "

    Yes, I did mean that. My "as well" referred to the fact that I wanted the same thing as others are requesting, rather than wanting it in both places. Language can be funny sometimes.

  33. Oh, what a shame! I'd buy one of these for the quote, but the design is just the end, it looks promotional... You could put "sleep talkin' man" on the back or right at the bottom where you normally put the originator of the quote?

    ReplyDelete
  34. love the shirts but the best part about "i can't control the kittens..." is the second "too many whiskers!!" add it, please!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I look forward to having "Peeing standing up rules!" on a t-shirt!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Nice one! Good luck with the sales!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I agree with @hunkate. Put in the second "too many whiskers" please!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I really love all the shirts! can you add the quote about the pequin zombies...done for? thats hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I agree with hunkate too. Too many whiskers! x 2

  40. btw, the white shirts don't seem to work... the text is white so it doesn't show up.

    ReplyDelete
  41. You've got to use the whole duck quote. You are skipping the punch line.
    One of the best T shirt friendly short quotes is 'Badger ticking proceed with caution" Also logo definitely better on back. looks to corporate. Otherwise genius!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hi Karen,

    The T-Shirts are great, and i was going to buy one, but i live in austria and shipping here is $13.99! That would be $30 just for a T-Shirt.

    I love the site, but that's just crazy money.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Absolutely superb! I live in the UK and want the t-shirt about the duck makes me chuckle EVERYTIME I read it. Am gonna watch This Morning later too! Yay!! GO Adam!!

  44. i heard the story this morning on bbc america as i was on my way to work out (late, as always!) i was so tickled with the oompah loompah quote that i wrote it in my journal so that i could make a t-shirt with it...i am delighted to see that i can just get it straight from the horses mouth, so to speak! (denver, colorado) for us americans, you should do a line of bumper stickers - you know how we love to wear our opinions on our cars ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hope you will add...
    "If I wanted to see a long nose and a big ass, I'd look at a horse."

    I agree with Anonymous from Denver, CO...Bumper stickers would be awesome...coffee mugs too!
