When life hands you a cease and desist, make t-shirts! Many moons ago we designed a parody shirt of the I Heart NY logo, replacing their heart with ours and NY with GUTS. Not long after I put it up, we got served with a cease and desist notice from New York City Development Corporation asking us to remove the shirt from our site and destroy the remaining stock. Needless to say, this really sucked, especially since we are not the only ones who have aped this design over the years (I know this continuing copying dilutes the copyright, it’s unoriginal, etc., believe me, I get it and I feel bad). Not liking to waste t-shirts, however — organic tees at that — we asked if it would be okay to alter the shirts so that the logo was no longer visible. They said fine. So I got crazy with the RIT dye and Chuva got crazy with the metallic thread stitching and here is the first in our series of limited-edition cease and desist tees, we only made 8! We will be making a few different special designs over the next few months, so if you miss these (or don’t like them) there will be more.
