I’m a nerd, and if you deem yourself awesome enough to also fly the nerd flag, then I have the AWESOMEST website for you.
Yes, it’s as awesome as it sounds.
But what is it you ask? Below is their own simple answer:
“It’s simple; ShirtPunch is your home for limited edition, pop culture tees… but there’s a twist! We only offer one shirt every 24-hours, and they’re always only $10”
How awesome is that!?!?
This site just started up and has been selling shirts for just over 2 weeks. Because they’re so new, there are still a couple of issues with their site. I learned this, the awesome way, today.
Quick back story: I was trying to purchase today’s shirt, which is an awesome rendition of a beer label. The beer is called ‘Hogwarts’ – Imported Muggle Ale, Dumbledortmunder Red. HOW AWESOME IS THAT!?!
So I logged on but realized I had forgotten my password, no worries, there’s a “Forget Your Password” link, which I clicked… and clicked… and clicked… and clicked… nothing, noda, zip, zilch.
Freaking out cause I really want this shirt and it’s only available for 11 more hours I sent the following email.
HELP! Trying to order today’s shirt but can’t remember my password and the ‘Forget Your Password’ link doesn’t seem to work.
Don’t want to miss today’s AWESOME shirt! Please send password!!
and being awesome, Russ replied right away.

Well….you’re right, the password button doesn’t work. We actually don’t have a way to get your password. Believe it or not, that’s a really complicated process to allow us to do that. We can do 3 different things here:
1) You can keep trying passwords until you get in, lol
2) I can delete your account and u can remake it
3) You can make another account and use that one for today
We’ll have the password recovery in soon, but until we do, these are our only options.
I hope this helps!
… HOW AWESOME WAS THAT REPLY?? So I replied.
Wow, that was awesomely hilarious. Out of my 3 options I think I’ll go with #3, break all the rules, and use my work email address.
thanks for the laugh,
And not to be undone Russ replied again.

Thanks for being so understanding Mona.
When building this program, we assumed it was a simple process to put in a password recovery….boy were we wrong! It’s beyond complicated. Everything’s encrypted and so difficult to access.
We’ll get it going very shortly though!
So in closing I created a new account, was able to order my awesome shirt and now have a serious crush on Russ, sorry Hubby.
Bookmark www.shirtpunch.com and check it everyday for AWESOMENESS!!
p.s. Just realized I used the word awesome, in its many forms, 15 times… best post ever!!
Can’t believe you actually got a human response…multiple times..and they were actually nice and trying to help. What a great company.
Shirtpunch… will check them out!
They’re the Bomb… not a boom boom bomb but a… aaaawwweesssoommmee bomb 😀
Are you sure Russ is a real guy? He sounds too good to be true. Hope you got your tee shirt and, you’re right, the site sounds like a great find. Thanks! 🙂
Why would Russ lie to me… WHY!?!? I do LOVE this site. I’ve purchased 2 shirts so far, the Hogwars beer one and the one titled ‘The Captain’, Nathan Fillion *sigh*.
Russ is a real guy, because I’m him. Actually, Mona just sent me this link in her email and I (read that as all of us here at ShirtPunch) couldn’t be more flattered. You guys are fantastic and keep us pushing forward. Much love, Russ
RUSS!?!?! SHUT UP!!! Your cool level has just, literally, blown through the roof!! SERIOUSLY plaster is falling on me and everything!!!
