There's currently no black version of design 4. There will be a second run of shirt sales once the first one closes, and depending on the popularity of the white version we may do a black variant.
Guess I'll wait for the second run then. I wish I could get design number 2 from last year. I really liked the Kmount one.

You should contact teespring- sounds like an issue with their e-mail validation:

Interestingly, at the moment everyone seems to be ordering last year's design 4...



Yeah, it's really too bad that they haven't come up with a solution for that- they claim that each shirt is printed at a different location, hence the overlapping costs.

However, USPS recently greatly increased prices for lightweight international shipments, so it's good that teespring isn't charging more than last year.

If you're interested in ordering 3 or more different designs, I can help consolidate the shipment for you to reduce costs. Just shoot me a PM!
Thank´s Adam:-) I see what i do, but shirts i will have!

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but their site will allow me to order only one shirt at a time...of a given style, that is. That's not happening.

I want that one too!

Is there anybody from Canada who ordered last year? Are there any additional fees, HST etc?

Yes, that's how it works. Multiple orders are needed for multiple styles (still ).

Teespring Customer SErvice says...

Hi, Teespring Customer Service says...

That if you are ordering several tee's from one campaign (Pentax forums is one campaign) and they all ship to the same address, they can combine the shipping charges but you have to contact customer service. I am trying to get more details from them. I am going back and forth with them via email now asking about why it is still that way. And how exactly do I order multiple tee's and combine the shippping. To me it appears they make it hard to do, so that people won't bother and will pay the extra shipping $$.

Hope this helps,
Thanks Scott

Subject: 1972801 - What is wrong with your order site? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jescyn | AUG 01, 2016 | 08:07PM EDT

Hi Scott

Thanks for writing in about this - I'm happy to explain our process in further detail. All of our campaigns are assigned to one of our printing facilities in the United States. Once a campaign ends, our Production Department assigns the campaign to the printing facility which best suits the needs of the design. Due to each order being shipped from different printing facilities, we are unable to offer combined shipping. However, if you are ordering multiple items from the same campaign, we'll be happy to combine the shipping for you. I hope this clears things up! If you have any other questions, please let me know.

Sincerely, Jescyn

Their response sounds clear- if you order different designs, each will have its own shipping charge. But within the US, it's only $3.99 for the first shirt and $2 for subsequent shirts. It does start adding up for international orders, however, where you'd have to pay the $12.50 base shipping for each design.

I would have ordered two, but could not, and 2 shipping charges are a bit much.

Here is my suggestion, based on the tee shirts I just ordered from another provider with my own photos on them, by uploading the jpgs
The shirts are very good.

Next time, make the jpgs available too for a fee, so that PF members can opt for a complete Tee as presently,,
or else resize the jpgs and shop around for their own style and provider.

So it turns out that Teespring recently bought a European company called Fabrily, and can now fulfill orders from Europe. For our second round of sales, I'll have each design available with the European fulfillment option, as this will reduce shipping costs considerably (€3.49 to the UK, €3.99 to other European countries, rather than $12.50 shipping from the US). You'll have to pay VAT, though it'll still be much cheaper if you want to order multiple designs.

There are other US companies like Teechip that offer cheaper international shipping to begin with (i.e. $5.99), so I'll be looking in to those for next year's sale.

Yep, that's the design I just ordered. None of the 2016 that I especially liked, made the cut.

I bought 2015 Design 4 in 2015. This year I bought the white version of K-1 Design 2, even though a K-1 is probably totally outside my budget {the body costing more than twice what I've ever paid for a kit} because I do like that design.

That's why I didn't buy a K-1 shirt, as I'll never own one, either.

That's far more like it! Thanks
