..Ok this is a little tough.. but I am looking for t-shirts with specific designs, I'm not sure what to call them, but if anyone has a clue, that would be great!

(1) Cool designs that don't advertise anything
(2) No writing, unless it fit withoin the range of what I need
(3) Simple, unique variety of designss

Ok, I have a couple examples in which to build a foundation on what I am really looking for:

http://www.cafepress.com/buy/t-shirt/-/pv_design_prod/p_storeid.38598461/pNo_38598461/id_9727516/opt_/pg_/c_/fpt_ (withOUT the artist's name on the bottom; "Linda '05")

http://www.cafepress.com/buy/t-shirt/-/pv_design_prod/p_storeid.69230536/pNo_69230536/id_13848375/opt_/pg_/c_/fpt_

http://www.cafepress.com/buy/t-shirt/-/pv_design_prod/p_storeid.69521569/pNo_69521569/id_13881059/opt_/pg_/c_/fpt_

http://www.cafepress.com/buy/t-shirt/-/pv_design_prod/p_storeid.69562172/pNo_69562172/id_13885659/opt_/pg_/c_/fpt_

http://www.cafepress.com/buy/t-shirt/cool/unique/-/pv_design_details/pg_14/id_11319240/opt_/fpt_fXBa__DB___CXDc_Pz-X_7O__Dc/c_0/ (I really like this design)

http://www.cafepress.com/buy/t-shirt/cool/unique/-/pv_design_details/pg_13/id_11683030/opt_/fpt_fXBa__DB___CXDc_Pz-X_7O__Dc/c_0/

http://www.cafepress.com/buy/t-shirt/cool/unique/-/pv_design_details/pg_31/id_13388767/opt_/fpt_fXBa__DB___CXDc_Pz-X_7O__Dc/c_0/

http://www.cafepress.com/buy/t-shirt/cool/unique/-/pv_design_details/pg_47/id_13738031/opt_/fpt_fXBa__DB___CXDc_Pz-X_7O__Dc/c_0/ (Not so much like this... but it hangs by a thread)

http://www.cafepress.com/buy/t-shirt/cool/-/pv_design_details/pg_9/id_5144290/opt_/fpt_fXBa__DB___CXDc_Pz-X_7O__Dc/c_0/

http://myspace-708.vo.llnwd.net/00561/80/73/561343708_l.jpg (A design like that, but without the advertisements.. and if you can find a chick like her that comes with the t-shirt, that would be awesome too :) )

http://myspace-270.vo.llnwd.net/00989/07/26/989096270_l.jpg (The "flower" without the "artus clothing" tag)

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated..

I don't think you'll find those "specific" designs without the artist copyright/name on them.

There are lots of t-shirt designs out there though. I'm sure with more searches through cafepress, threadless, etc, you'll find designs that you like.

Are you looking for them just to wear? If so, taking them "as is" might be your best bet (or waiting to find one you like).

If you really like that one, what's wrong with it? :) You should buy it :)

I guess I'm not to sure what you're asking.

:welcome:

There's a lot of those designs anonymously, like in the links i gave, except for specific ones.. and yea, i might buy the one i really liked. But what I tried saying was if there are 'similar' designs like the artus clothing ones without the company's name on it... also, i checked out "threadless" and i found this to be interesting:

http://www.threadless.com/product/450/Wandering_Spirit

so, if there are any more suggestions, that would be great. And thanks for your reply.

There are lots and lots of designs and companies that fit that description :)

It would be a challenge to try to list them all.

You can find t-shirts like that with searches for artistic t-shirts, fashion t-shirts, etc. They are also found in stores like urbanoutfitters, old navy, pacific sunwear, and lots of smaller boutique type shops.

It would be interesting to find out how people would "classify" that type of design. What other keywords would describe that type of design?

That way someone would know what to search for online to find more of them (and the people that sell those designs would know how to optimize their site so customers could find them).

I'm not sure if all those examples fit into one design category. I was going to say minimalist realism after clicking on a few, but then you've got some symbol design in there, as well as some plain old minimalist abstraction.

Myself, I think a duck wearing a perplexed chicken on his head would make for a great design...

are you planning on buying them wholesale and selling them, or printing something similar and selling it? or just making a one off for yourself? that might make any searching a bit easier.

if all else fails, just bring a few of the designs you like to a designer, have them make it to your specifications, and that will save you any copyright infringement grief. and then you'll have your own custom shirts! yay!

i dont plan on doing anything illegal.. but thanks for assuming so.

what i ACTUALLY am trying to get at without anyone really having the SUSPICION of anything is that i want to buy and WEAR stuff that I like without advertising stuff. I create, (don't really have to say what), and I do not put any copyright or advertising tagging on it since I can create ideas without running out of any. But that's not the point. I'm just looking for T-Shirts of my liking.. so more advice would be great too.

It's easy for people to make assumptions when they're not provided with any other information to go on in the first place. Why you want them could affect the kind of products people suggest, which is why people are asking.

I don't think anyone assumed that you were doing anything illegal, they just asked a question and followed up that question with caviats that were related to the question.

We're trying to help :) It's just that your question is a bit "general". It's not like you're looking for one specific t-shirt, it's almost like you want a whole wardrobe (which isn't so bad :))

I would be interested to know what folks should search for when trying to find the types of shirts you like. Vintage t-shirts comes to mind, but that really doesn't describe it.

I would have searched for "tribal", which as it turns out is what the poster did search for.
