Tees For Your Head unveils geeky astronomy t-shirts

Dec '12
Imagine working in unusually dry, cold conditions, two miles above sea level, where night and day don't follow the rules: winters are never light and summers are never dark. Welcome to the South Pole.
 
Online store Tees For Your Head is the only retailer to offer t-shirts created by and for the researchers, engineers, and support staff of the South Pole Telescope project.
 
Tees are available for 2008 through 2012, with 2013 coming soon. The original print runs were screen printed, and were available only to the people personally connected to the project.
 
Now Tees For Your Head will maintain former and current versions of the tees, printing them to order using direct-to-garment printers on the blank of the buyer's choice.
 
Blank t-shirt styles to choose from include:
-A men's classic cut (a looser fit) in heavyweight cotton with a crew neck
-A men's lightweight, fitted style in organic cotton with a crew neck
-A women's lightweight, fitted style in organic cotton with a crew neck
-A women's lightweight, fitted style with a v-neck
-A unisex youth heavyweight cotton with a crew neck
 
For the first time, the general public is invited to celebrate the South Pole Telescope project by wearing their favorite shirts, anything from the playful Nibiru design for 2012 to the elegant wire frame-style drawing of the telescope for 2011.
 
Shirts are available now on the Tees For Your Head website. "We are lucky to be able to offer these designs, and we have sizes for kids and tee styles for women.
 
It’s a great way for the people who have been involved in creating, and now using, the South Pole Telescope to share the experience with their families without making them go to the south pole," says Tom Bates, co-owner of Tees for Your Head.
 
The online home of geeky t-shirts for lovers of the arts and sciences was launched in 2012.
