T-Shirt Hell Closing Shop (Last Chance to Buy)

UPDATE: T-Shirt Hell tricked us all, and the company is NOT going out of business.

It’s a sad, sad time in the world of t-shirts. One of the longest running and highest profile t-shirt sites is closing shop on Tuesday, February 8, and it’s not the bad economy or the unusually cold winter that’s to blame.  Sunshine Megatron, founder of T-Shirt Hell, is simply tired of being misunderstood.

I started this company in June of 2001, nearly 8 years ago, with the intention of producing the best satirical, the most controversial, the funniest t-shirts on the internet. Generally speaking, I feel I’ve accomplished that and am satisfied with what we’ve put out…

Unfortunately, as a concern for the safety of my employees, we don’t push the envelope as much anymore…and I can’t say I feel good about having caved in…

Anyway, rather than cater to the masses, I’m just going to stop making shirts. It’s not enjoyable anymore and I have enough money to move on to something more rewarding.

A part of me says this can’t be true – maybe it’s a publicity stunt, or that the tidal wave of positive e-mails urging T-Shirt Hell to stay open will change his mind.  Deep down inside I know that all things come to end and maybe it’s time.  Say what you will about the inherent negativity found in their offensive t-shirts, but nobody else has been able to match their wit, design, and prolificness inside the genre.

Here’s to you, T-Shirt Hell, you definitely showed us how it’s done:

God Damn Shirt
I Support Single Moms T-Shirt
Your Daughter's Face T-Shirt
Your Mom T-Shirt
Are You Tighter Than Fifth Grader T-Shirt
Arrest Black Babies... T-Shirtt
Save Gas Ride the Handicapped T-Shirt
The Koran... now in 2 ply T-Shirt
Coma Sutra T-Shirt

  1. T-shirt Hell will certainly be missed by those who aren’t afraid to show their sense of humor. We hope to help those on the quest for funny & offensive tees, by continuing to provide the funniest & most offensive t-shirts on the web. To those who can’t handle it, we have the same statement as Mr. Megatron did… Fuck You!

  2. Our store offers shirts from several different designers & shops. When we find something we like, we add it to the store. It’s not always obvious who may have come up with the idea first. Keep in mind that T-shirt Hell has politely borrowed ideas from other designers quite a few times too… those retro cartoons are not originals, along with many of the other graphics. Their uniqueness is shown in the extremely offensive designs that nobody else is brave enough to attempt. We will all miss the way that Mr. Megatron has pushed the envelope in ways that none of us would even think of.

  3. I love what t shirt hell was able to do even though I did not think all of the t shirt designs were in great taste. They were giant in a huge pond and I will miss them.
