The Beer King tee design is a mashup or parody featuring Bender from Futurama holding up a mug of beer over the iconic cliff from The Lion King.

Nevertheless, I only recommend products and services that I personally believe in and use. This disclosure is in accordance with the FTC's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

 The Beer King tee design is for Futurama fans and those that have fond memories of The Lion King.

For the concept, The Beer King tee design parodies Disney's most famous Lion King scene by having Bender from Futurama holding up a bottle of beer as if it was the new born king. There is no real originality as Firebeard does not own the rights to either Futurama or The Lion King. Bender is like a straight ripped copy with no edits or alterations as a true parody would have to avoid copyright infringement. Bender is simply Bender. Not that I really care, I am just commenting on the originality and creativity aspects. But the mashing up of the two franchises is cool and make for a funny concept.

As for the artwork, the coloring is good with some tricky shading that could fool the eyes into thinking that it is wrong. It isn't perfect but I wouldn't go as far as to call it "wrong". The only area that really needs fixed is Bender's left arm. As for the glass beer mug, there is a concave on the bottom of the beer mug that is why it has shading there as there is a side to a ridge. Plus the background shows through the mug as it is drawn as transparent.

This is one of many Lion King parodies and ranks up there with some of the best.

I'm not much of a Disney fan but I enjoy the Hell out of Futurama. This design is funny and suitable as a Futurama tee as any Earthican would agree..

Bottom Line

The products and retailer Neatoshop are definitely high quality with a better price than most of the other Print On Demand services ($15.95 – $19.95 range for Tees, $29.95 for Long Sleeves, $45-50 for Hoodies). Most of the designs can be found elsewhere but the color and print quality will be weak in comparison. The brand of blanks that they use are Hanes and Next Level from the samples that I’ve seen, they have others depending on the color and style. It is nice to have fabric color options as each design usually has a few choices to choose from, so that is a major plus. There are plenty of sizes and styles as well. As for the printing method, they use the Digital Print or Direct To Garment (DTG) technique. Their methods with their printer are as close as possible to the traditional Screen Printed results. This means that their ink is laid on thick and their ink colors are bold and not muted like it is at most of their Print On Demand competitors. That is a big deal so the print method gets a 5 star rating, especially when taking the price into consideration. We feel that The Beer King Tee is a worthy purchase and therefore should not result in any buyer’s remorse.
