I've got a store on Zazzle.com offering t-shirts based on vintage matchbook designs. Many of the shirts offer additional versions printed on both front and back, all full-color, and designed to incorporate the color of the shirt into the design, so you can totally customize it.

Have a look:

Nicely done! Love the front and back idea, like the Islander map and the Seven Seas pig. And that Kauai Surf logo has always been one of my faves.

Thanks, bigbrotiki! Glad you like them.

4WDTiki, good idea, I'll post some pics tomorrow (sheesh, it's after midnight, I guess I'll post them later today!).

Here are some pics, as requested:





Most shirts have an additional design available on the back:



On all of them you can choose the style of shirt (including sweatshirts, hoodies, long sleeve, ringers, etc) plus whatever color combination you like best:



Many more designs available, with new ones added frequently (as I acquire new matchbooks).

I don't know the legality of using old designs, but I dig it. Also, please check out Spreadshirt. A buddy of mine is head of graphics there, and I've seen the production. They're really high quality. The shirts and the prints, that is. They have other things as well. You can get samples. Also, they pay their stores really well, and carry some big names.

I'm only using designs that are out of copyright. That's why there's no Trader Vic's or Mai Kai. (According to the trademark office, Don the Beachcomber trademarks expired for all but their logo mark in use with alcoholic beverages).

I'll check out Spreadshirt again. One of the nice things about Zazzle is the ability to have open spaces within the design to let the shirt color show through, plus the ability to do double sided shirts. Still, their base cost is high, so this is a labor of love more than anything else. I only make 10% of the cost of the product (to keep prices low), so I won't be retiring in Fiji anytime soon.

A few new designs have been added. Tiki Bob's (yay!), Hawaiian Room, South Seas and the venerable Hinky Dink's.

Thanks to everyone who has purchased shirts!

Thanks! If it makes you feel any better, I have the same problem.
