Wordboner, a typography project “with personality”, is the one-man endeavor of graphic designer Peter Kay. The designs number in the hundreds, covering a variety of subjects from wordplay, art, love, life, music, and more. Many of the slogans are on the more mature/reflective side; others contain vulgar language or concepts. In addition, a lot of the older designs have “wordboner.com” branding in small type, meaning this store may not be entirely appropriate for younger children. However, that same fact may strike a chord with older customers who are looking for something beyond the humor/slogan shirts marketed towards teenagers/college-age kids. The aesthetically pleasing typography certainly doesn’t hurt.
The Wordboner store is run via the Spreadshirt platform. This allows for more customer customization than usual — you can pick the color and brand of your shirt, and if none of the default options please you, you can use the designer tool to create your own from scratch. On the other hand, Digital Direct/direct-to-garment printing isn’t known to hold up as well as screenprinting, although I’ve never personally had any real fading issues with Spreadshirt’s products.
Shirts: $15.99-$22.99, depending on the brand.
Shipping: US shipping starts at $4.50. Check out Spreadshirt’s chart for more info; they do the shipping, not Wordboner. If you’re ordering from Europe, ordering from the European store may be a better idea.
Definitely one of the best typography brands in the directory. A huge range of designs, but after you’ve seen a few, you’ll get the idea.
