I'd be curious to know if the soulless supercomputer that runs teefury has ever calculated the win/loss ratio of going back and re-printing seven or so of the best and most popular shirts from the sites infancy.

"It's not possible!"

Well, I don't see why the artists couldn't be commissioned again. I'm sure most of them wouldn't mind an extra dollar or two.

"You idiot, these shirts are a one day only thing!"

If I had known about teefury in 2008, I'd have a a hundred shirts by now, but thanks to non-existent advertising it's something I just happened to trip over. It isn't my fault. Don't deny me sweet, sweet shirts just because I'm late to the party. Traffic to the site is probably a billion times more than what it was back when the oldest shirts were printed. There's money to be made.

...green, sweaty bills just looking for a wallet...

Plus, it might shut up those jerks who say teefury's too pop culturey.

What do you guys think?

    I think it would be a neat idea, I would have loved to buy some of the earlier shirts that the site had.

    Maybe a once-a-week/month type thing could work as well instead of a whole week

    Great idea! I'm pretty new to Tee Fury so there are a ton of shirts I missed out on that I would love to own. Best Buddies & Exterminate are at the top of my list.

    One design has been re-printed, "ZOMBAMA BRAINS" by BeastPop:

    http://www.teefury.com/archive/991/Zombama_Returns/

    The original:

    http://www.teefury.com/archive/353/ZOMBAMA_BRAINS/

    If I had to guess which tee would be re-printed next, I'd have to say "Best Buddies" by Chris Wahl because of the sheer droves of people still pining for it today, including me. I just hope they don't tweak it like they did with BeastPop's design.

    We've had lots of threads like these before... I'm fully for it, but I disagree with you on one minor point. The business model for this site is a NEW t-shirt every day, with the exception of grab bags of course–which are just to cover over-stocks. But... if the design is "remixed" it becomes something new, just like Zombama.

    So, I think it should be one week--you don't want to do it too often. Pick the 7 highest selling designs of all time(with no repeat designers, basically if say #'s 4 & 6 are the same designer, then the 7th place would go to the 8th highest selling design, and so forth), and have the designs remixed/cut, chopped & screwed by the original designers.

    It could be dope...
