About this project
Jellybean Shirts are gorgeous, fun T-shirts for tabletop gamers.
Everyone here at Jellybean Games is a gamer, and we've come up with a selection of board game-inspired designs. They're exactly the kind of shirt that we want to wear, so we thought we'd share them with the world!
With your help, we can make a collection of colorful shirts which allow you to show off your passion for tabletop gaming...and look good doing it!
All of our shirts are screen-printed, which means the art will last hundreds of washes (maybe as long as the shirt does!) We have three designs for you to choose from:
This shirt is also a game. Each icon represents a different board game; challenge your friends to name them all!
Does your cat love to curl up in the game box as soon as you open it? Tell the world you’re a gamer, and that your pet is too!
The revolution is now! Rise up and pick a side in the eternal fight between the proletariat workers and the bourgeoisie players. Dice will fall!
Each of these gorgeous shirts are available in both men's and women's cuts. Men's shirts are 100% cotton, women's shirts are 60/40 combed ringspun cotton/polyester.
We have partnered with Clockwise to bring you soft, high-quality shirts with stunning print. Clockwise Tees are renowned throughout the clothing industry for their incredible quality. They have printed the highest-quality shirts for some of the world's best designers for the past 10 years.
See the bottom of the page for sizes and measurements.
Rather than making these shirts print-on-demand (which are susceptible to quickly washing out, fading, and peeling), we want to print them at the highest quality possible.
To make high-quality, screen printed shirts at an affordable price, they need to be ordered en masse. Without your help, we can't make these shirts. If we can order at least 500 of each shirt, we can bring these gorgeous garments into the world.
Support the project and tell your friends: if we get enough support, we can fill the world with fun, gorgeous, comfortable shirts!
All you need to do right now is decide how many shirts you want! Once the campaign is over, we’ll send you a survey letting you decide exactly which shirts you’d like, and allowing you to select the exact sizes and cuts you want.
You can add additional funds to your order for extra shirts! After the campaign ends, you'll be able to specify which shirts you want, in which size and cut.
If we can exceed our campaign goal, we can upgrade the quality of the shirts and offer more fun apparel!
$5,000 - Funded!
At $5k we'll have made our goal, and be able to bring these gorgeous shirts to your gorgeous bodies!
$7,500 - Tote bags available!
When we reach $7.5k, we'll be able to offer tote bags with the shirt graphics on them! These will be a limited-print item and are unlikely to be widely available after the Kickstarter ends.
$10,000 - Tank tops available!
When $10k has been raised, we'll be able to offer Jellybean Tank Tops! These will be a limited-print item and are unlikely to be widely available after the Kickstarter ends.
$15,000 - Shirt: The Game in a second color!
As well as the basic black version, at $15k we'll be able to offer Shirt: The Game in a gorgeous gray! The second color will be a limited-print option and is unlikely to be widely available after the Kickstarter ends.
$20,000 - One of the shirt designs will be printed using water-based ink!
If we can raise $20k towards the shirts, we're going to print one of the designs on water-based ink! Normal screen-printing uses plastisol, which sits on top of the fabric; printing with water-based ink is more expensive, but it means that the ink actually sinks into the fabric.
This is the nicest possible way to print a shirt - you can barely feel the ink at all! We'll hold a vote for which of the designs gets printed this way, and the entire run of that design will be made using water-based ink.
$25,000 - Fourth design available!
At $25k, we're going to put together a fourth shirt design!
If we exceed $25k raised, we have other exciting stretch goals planned!
The Jellybean Shirts were conceived by Peter C. Hayward and Tom Lang, with art by Tania Walker and help from the whole Jellybean team.
When your shirts arrive, if you're not 100% happy with them you can return them unworn within thirty days for a full refund; no questions asked. We are dedicated to making shirts that you are completely satisfied with.
Additionally, these shirts are guaranteed to arrive by Christmas! Your present-shopping woes are solved; these shirts will get to you in time to gift-wrap them for friends or loved ones, we promise!
Risks and challenges
We're working with Clockwise.io on this project; Clockwise has printed literally millions of high-quality shirts.
For this campaign, we're printing in the US and shipping everything out with ShipNaked, who are also in the US. There's no risk of ships sinking, or product getting stuck at customs. We're gonna print the shirts then send you the shirts - that's it!
These shirts will be in your hands by Christmas, guaranteed!
This is our fourth campaign. Dracula's Feast is currently printing, and The Lady and the Tiger is being sent to the printer shortly. Our first campaign Scuttle! printed and shipped six months ago, and we're applying the lessons that we learned from that to everything we do.
If you have concerns at any point, you can get in contact via firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll happily answer any questions you may have, or provide a refund if you're not completely satisfied.
(But these shirts are awesome, and we're confident you're going to love them.)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
