Arm The Animals Tee Brand Review.

Arm The Animals Tee Brand

Arm The Animals Tee Brand is a charitable business that supports Animal Rights. Meaning that a portion of the proceeds goes to various charities supporting that cause.

As for the Print Quality, the shirts and fleece that we have are printed slightly above the average Direct To Garment digital prints and are on par with ones that you would find at sites such as Redbubble.

This is a print to order type of business so the turn around time is usually great. Here is their shipping policy in their own words:

Shipping Policy

"We run most online orders on a “print to order basis” and we begin fulfillment as soon as possible. We buy blanks, produce, QC, and ship every day of the week and we can turn most orders in 5-7 business days. We are always working on this process to make it faster and more efficient and each quarter, we can get our orders out a day or two quicker. "

Arm The Animals Tee Brand Interview:

How did Arm The Animals Tee Brand get started and what is your brand all about?

Arm The Animals was born from tragedy in 2010 as an attempt to express the inexpressible. Created following the untimely death of my sister (who a lifelong animal advocate and “pet parent” to a dozen rescues), Arm The Animals would serve as a living tribute and means of carrying on a legacy that was ended too soon. It all started as an emotional reaction and a hobby, but thankfully, it took and has evolved into the brand you see today.

What are the ATA ideals?

Our ideals are really simple: Make killer tees and make an impact on the welfare of as many animals in need as possible. We want to be the voice of people out there who are not extremists, but truly care about animal welfare. We like to send a strong message via imagery and up to this point, we think we have done a good job of that. Charitable cause are really personal and subjective, but we see millions of animals in need and we just want to help as best we can. Our company motto is, “Speak for the Speechless & Defend the Defenseless”, so that’s the basic credo all of our designs speak to.

Who designs the tees?

95% of all designs are done in house and by myself or RJ Ochoa. We try to do as much in-house as possible, but about 2 years ago, we began reaching out and using a small network of artists from around the world. We have released items featuring art from Thailand, The Philippines Australia, The UAE, Ukraine and more. We really like the idea of getting a new, “Global take” on our concepts, which can be tough to do from inside the company. We have also had guest artists come and work in the office with us for weeks at a time; Franz Garcia (http://franzdg.blogspot.com/) & Tony Koehl (http://www.sketchthesoul.com/featured/they-died-not-knowing-tony-koehl.html) made major contributions to our releases over the past 2 years in particular.

What inspires the tees?

We have been inspired by making an impact on the general welfare of animals, but certain instances also influence us. For example, when Cecil the lion was killed last year, it inspired a hugely successful design that raised over $12,000 for the ZCTF, who patrols the area where Cecil was killed. Originally, ATA started as just a hobby to help cat/dog shelters and it has now mushroomed into covering all animals of all types. So many species are facing extinction and plight that there is no shortage of inspiration and when it all comes together, like it did with Cecil, the results are amazing!

How would you classify the tees?

We’re actually proud that there is no clear classification for our tees; I mean, they are graphic tees, but you can’t simply say they are high fashion, or hipster, or beach life inspired or political, etc. To us, they are all that… Animal welfare cuts across every demographic on the planet, so we’re lucky to be able to appeal to so many different kinds of people. This isn’t easy, but it is a good problem to have in our estimation.

When we researched animal welfare tees back in 2010 when we started the company - all we found was kittens and butterflies, or blood and guts - with nothing in between for the every man or every woman out there. We wanted to make tees for people who are pissed and care about animals and want to show it - so that’s what we attempted to do. We have had any kind of person you could imagine support us and have even seen three generations of a family all buy a different shirts from us at an event. That’s something special and it’s not something a ton of brands can pull off.

Super Breaking Blocks Tee by Ninjaink

Super Breaking Blocks Tee Design Review.

The Super Breaking Blocks tee design is for Super Mario Bros. and Breaking Bad fans that can't can't get enough of either.

This a fantastic mashup and one of the best for both Super Mario Bros. and Breaking Bad. It makes the top 3 easily for either or both. That is saying a lot considering that there are A LOT of them out there.

As for the artwork, it is as professional as a tee can get. Great coloring and shading with true to the show and video game likenesses. It combines many of the elements that both franchises have in common. The ones used is nothing short of genius. It features Walter white in his yellow hazmat Tanooki suit and has Tortuga on a Troopa instead of a Tortoise. No coincidence that Tortuga looks like Luigi here. This would had gotten a perfect 5 out of 5 stars had there been actual Blue "Blocks" being broken as the shirt title suggests. Give us our "Blue Sky" dammit!

This Super Breaking Blocks tee would make a great gift for the fans of both franchises. It is like buying them 2 gifts in 1.

While this tee is badass, I wouldn't recommend it as a school garment with the Breaking Bad references. Other than that, this will make a great t-shirt for any casual occasion.

MYSTIC OCEAN Tee Design by Ben Chen.

Mystic Ocean Tee Design Review.

The Mystic Ocean tee is for people that like skulls and possibly have thalassophobia.

The ocean is a deadly and scary place. Sure we've all seen some breathe taking underwater scenery shot by scuba divers but drowning, being eaten, stung, or crushed by pressure are some crappy ways to die. That is just a few of the ways that things can go wrong in the ocean.

This artwork by Ben Chen is a monochromatic piece that shows what looks peaceful far away is full of life threatening dangers around every turn. The scene itself is enclosed inside the skull shape with the skull features such as the eye sockets and nose being formed by the marine life that is swimming around inside the skull. Sharks, Sting Ways, a school of fish, a tortoise and some kelp.

The Mystic Ocean design is ideal for wearing to aquariums and the beach.

Is available on: Tees, Phone Cases and Wall Art. Navy fabric for Men's and Midnight Blue fabric for Women's is mandatory and it works well with this artwork as it is a water themed color. The review breakdown is as follows:

Endless Starry Night Tee Design by Spiritgreen

Endless Starry Night Tee Design Review.

The Endless Starry Night tee design takes the Van Gogh style to illustrate the Great A'Tuin from Discworld. Which shares one of the oldest and most interesting creation myths spanning across our globe, namely the World Turtle concept. Of which the earth is formed and carried on it's back.

Spiritgreen took the Van Gogh style and used it to recreate Terry Pratchett's fantasy world. The style fits the descriptions and feel of the story well.

The Endless Starry Night design is on children's apparel too.
