** I am thrilled, excited, and a little emotionally overwhelmed with joy that this project not only will be funded, but has more than doubled my original goal. THANK YOU everyone for your support. Seriously, thank you. **
Indulge your inner geek with Quark Tees.
My name is Hadria Beth Hermele, and I am the owner and designer of Quark Tees. Along with a B.A. in Fine Art and a passion for illustration, I have special love/obsession for all things geek. I've always found science to be extremely inspirational in my work. Naturally these two interests were bound to collide, and Quark Tees was born.
You may already be familiar with one of my designs "Hugs are for Planets Only":
"Hugs are for Planets Only" was featured on I Fucking Love Science, made the rounds on Reddit, and most recently was used as the image for an April Fools article on the science website From Quarks to Quasars announcing Pluto's return to planetary status (sorry so many were disappointed it was just a prank).
So through all of this, I keep getting asked the same question: "Where can I get that on a shirt?"
AS OF 5/13/14
Our inaugural line of tees will now feature EIGHT (!!) designs on adult tees, and THREE designs for the kids! All designs will be printed on 100% combed ring-spun cotton jersey. These tees are super soft and pre-shrunk with a great fit. Both unisex AND women's styles will be available in sizes Small - 2XL. Kids tees will be available in sizes 2 - 5/6.
WE HIT EVERY STRETCH GOAL!!! Thanks to your support not only will these designs be available on tees but also on zip hoodies, messenger bags, v-neck tees, women's tank tops, and men's sleeveless tees!
Messenger bags are 100% cotton canvas, 16 X 11.5 X 4.75 with side pockets, and both interior & exterior zippered pockets.
Zip hoodies feature full design on back, and small embellishment on front. Hoodies will be available in sizes S-3XL and in all designs!

Risks and challenges
I've tried to be realistic with the timeframes given, but as with any start-up there could be delays in production and fulfillment. I will be keeping backers diligently posted should any delays arise and will be working hard to ensure your rewards arrive as fast as possible.
Please also note that since all images here are mockups, final products may vary from what is shown. I have done my best to depict these items as accurately as possible!
