AtomicToasters Merchandise, The Style of Technology

In Lieu Of User Input: The Shirts Are Here!

Shirt 1

It’s been a long and frustrating battle, involving multiple different companies, and some very misleading promises, but looking back on it all, it’s been a valuable learning experience. Kind of.

Okay, not really, but at the least it does appear that we now know what we’re doing well enough that we can make this happen much easier in the future. Our T-shirts have finally arrived. There are a number of you who have already placed pre-orders, and I’ll be picking up shipping envelopes tomorrow after work. With luck, I’ll even be able to ship your shirts tomorrow, and then it’s just however long it takes for your present to arrive on your doorstep. Because remember, you’re not buying a shirt, you’re donating to the AtomicToasters Community-Building Happy Fund, and I’m sending you a free shirt as a thank-you gift.

To those who have already purchased, thank you. We’re not doing this to make money, we’re doing this so we can build a slush fund to do some of the cool stuff we’ve wanted to do since we started this site. Prizes, giveaways, even sponsorships for certain individuals who have awesome LeMons racers that deserve some love. And by “sponsorships”, we mean “free stickers that we hope you’ll put on your car”. Or things like that.

For those of you who were skeptical that this would ever happen, we can’t say we blame you. But it finally has, and now we have a box full of shirts.

What’s that you say? You want a shirt but you don’t have two coins to rub together? Well fear not. Our very own skitter has donated enough for two shirts, with the request that we give one away, and we’re going to do exactly that. Want a freebie shirt? Help us design the next round of shirts. As soon as we rebuild the fund enough, we’d like to order another batch of shirts — or something else! We’re open to ideas! The stickers helped fund these shirts, now the shirts can help fund something else. So help us out, and we’ll reward you with gifts.

We’re asking for a $25 donation per shirt, but it really is a donation. If you have no creative ability, and can’t afford the $25, send us an email at and we’ll chat. Oh, and there are still a ton of stickers left, if anyone missed out the first time.

And hopefully, to make this process easier for you, here’s a big shiny button to help:

  • "…sponsorships for certain individuals who have awesome LeMons racers…."

    Joke's on you! I've already put AT stickers on my LeMons racer even though it's crappy!

    I put them on the inside of the glass, so don't try sneaking over to peel them off.

    • skitter

      Joke's on them again. I would have ordered another.

      I order things and forget about them. Then I get a package and know that SOMEBODY LOVES ME!

      My life is very exciting.

  • I will no longer be shirtless!

    My neighbors thank you.

  • GTXEliminator

    How does the whole shipping and size workout? My shipping address isn't the address on my paypal.

    • I just put my size in the "special instructions for the seller" section (on my browser it showed up as a + sign that expands into an input box). I guess you can put your shipping address there too…

    • Deartháir

      Missed that question, sorry! Like dwegmull said, just put it in the comment box, it comes straight to me, I'll check it. Or send an email to with any special requirements!

  • SSurfer321

    Can I use my donation as a tax write-off?

    • Deartháir

      Sadly, not yet. Basically I haven't figured out all the rules about how to charge taxes for dozens of different jurisdictions, so this is a workaround for the moment. We have GST, but I don't think I have to charge that to Americans, and I think I have to charge PST to people from BC… it's confusing. So right now it's a donation. If it grows beyond a few hundred bucks, we'll sort it all out properly.

      • SSurfer321

        Sorry, I forgot to add the /sarcasm tag.

  • PowerTryp

    Late to this party (and I've been off this site for a while) but count me in!

  • I'm still waiting for my stickers. Maybe I'll get a shirt.
