Travelfish T-shirts now available!

Posted by somtam2000 on 27/7/2009 at 19:29 admin

First, if you won a T-shirt in the Travelfish Fifth Birthday celebration a couple of weeks ago, don't fret -- they're being mailed out at the moment -- the designer was down with dengue fever, hence the delay.

But if you didn't win one, you may be interested to learn that you don't have to wait another year to win one.

Yes, we're flogging Travelfish T-shirts through the site now and you can read all about it here.

Cheers!

Any chance of a full picture of the T shirt design? Just curious to see what exactly is written on them!

Hope the designer is feeling better now ... poor thing, dengue is a very unpleasant disease.

The back has the logo between the shoulders, then the following text below:

"The best fish on the net.
Travel right.
Travel light.
Travelfish.

www.travelfish.org"

No small brick of gold unfortunately -- maybe we'll do that next year, but note the prices do include all shipping (by EMS).

If you won a shirt in the birthday comp, it should be showing up anyday.

Got my T-shirt today, too, thanks! I agree with carlocargo - it's a nice T-shirt, nice fabric.

Just a bit of info... in spite of habit of wearing black, I decided that I didn't want to wear black top in Asia so went for the grey one. Grey is more likely to hide a multitude of sins! I expected the more typical light grey, but it's actually more a taupe colour - a darker grey.

This isn't a problem at all - it's better than I expected. Just thought you might want to know if you plan to order the grey one.

Thanks again, Somtam!

Actually, I'm going to change my mind on the colour (oops). It's not taupe - but more a gunmetal grey - a dark-ish grey with a hint of blue. I was getting a bit mixed up with another T that I brought home yesterday as well. (I blame this blonde moment on the rum & cokes that I was enjoying at the same time!)

It's still a great colour - nicer than the lighter grey that I had assumed!

Glad to hear it got there -- seems delivery to the US is taking a LOT longer than we were told...

how about a free/discounted TF t-shirt as im in Bali?? i promise to wear it non-stop for 5 weeks around thailand and Laos?!! i think its a fair trade considering its a $20 loss compared to that $950 saving!! :-)

I think I've got a couple with mosquito netting built in, which should suit you perfectly ;-) Let me know what colour you want and I'll bring it down tomorrow -- large?

wow, i was only [half] joking but the mosquito lining seals the deal!

I think the gray one, like the one you wore the other day, would be good. Black is too hot in Asia and white will turn yellow! Large sounds good too

Thanks again

$31. is a little too rich for this flashpacker's blood!
