Since many of the shirt websites out there offer limited edition and random shirts, I was inspired to create a website specifically tailored for t-shirt trading. I hoped to provide a user-friendly website that would make t-shirt trading from all shirt websites a hassle-free procedure.

teetrade.org was born out of that idea, and I believe it has come along quite well so far. It is a fully searchable t-shirt database of all of the shirts that our users have specified that they have available for trading, as well as the shirts they would like to acquire in trades. We have a user based rating system as well as trading comments to help assist users in being confident of the person they are trading with.

As with any community based website, it will only be as useful as the number of users willing to take the time to upload their shirts. Please visit the site and browse the shirts posted as available, and consider posting your own tshirts that you would like to trade.

Please contact me via the contact form on the site or by responding to this post if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, gripes, etc.

Thanks and happy trading.

    Cool!

    Just a suggestion, on the search instead of having all the sizes checked on by default maybe have them off instead? Having to uncheck every box to search my size is a hassle.

    Awesome idea. You should post this over at Emptees.com (t-shirt community)

    Did you post this over at woot, I didn't see it on the forum but I know that it would be a hit there also.

    Hey I didn't see a spot for suggestions on the actual site so I thought I'd post this here, in messages could you make a Re: for replying to messages? It's annoying having to type in a new subject when you are replying to someone else's message.

    Any chance of getting a little bird icon or teefury link somewhere on your site? perhaps a section on the site with links to the original tee companies?

    There is a page, although buried, providing links to the original tee companies.

    I did not want to presume that the original tee websites would want their links, logos, etc, displayed prominently, but I am certainly not opposed to making it a bit more obvious on the main page upon request, and/or including something like the site logos. Will you contact me behind the scenes in regard to your logo and what legal comment you would need me to add if my current disclaimer isn't adequate, etc. You can either use my Tee Fury contact info, the contact form on the teetrade, or email admin [at] teetrade.org.

    I'm not sure if there is already an feature like this and I just don't see it...but it would be GREAT if there was a tee-notifier. Let me give you an example:

    I want "say no to scurvy" in a mens small...I put up a post about it. Someone else has it available but sifting through thousands of shirts isn't fun, or they miss my own post about it. I saw plenty of posts today with a situation of someone wanting a shirt, and someone else having it available. But they just haven't crossed paths.

    So if there was some kind of automatic notifier if the same shirt was available or wanted. That'd be good :)

    Make sense?

    I think something like that is a great idea, SilkyGardens. Almost like a dating match-up function for t-shirts :) "Someone matching your qualifications has registered!"... but for t-shirts :)

    I love teetrade, btw, bluchez. Already sent two shirts to good homes :)

    I am still a bit wary of using teetrade.
    I had my small Pseudo's Daughter listed there as up for trade for a mens medium.

    Someone asked me to trade for a "Mr M".
    I assumed this was just an abbreviation for mens medium.
    Turns out that he was referring to a Woot shirt I never saw before called "Mr. M-".
    I didn't find this out until I received the shirt.
    Woot mediums don't even fit me either.

    Long story short, I was duped into trading away one of my favorite Teefury shirts thinking I was getting something else.
