T-Shirt Tuesday: Birder at Work

Posted on April 28th, 2009 in T-Shirt Tuesday

This week’s highlighted bird-themed shirt looks like a construction sign you’d see on the highway. In this case, though, the orange diamond reads Birder at Work and has a silhouetted image of a birder looking through a scope. Here shown on the unisex Dark T-Shirt in brown. Looks great on the tote too!

T-Shirt Tuesday: State Birder

Posted on April 7th, 2009 in T-Shirt Tuesday

This week I’d like to highlight a series of designs I added for state birders. We’ve got a medallion-like circular design featuring every state in the union. Each design has the state silhouette in deep red inside a muted brown and tan circle with sunburst background. There is a flock of fowl flying over the design and text reading State Birder for each state. Shown here: Illinois Birder (that’d be me); Minnesota Birder; and New Jersey Birder.
