SwishSwosh.com announce the release of their new range of limited edition t-shirts
Online PR News – 11-November-2009 – – Manchester, United Kingdom, 11th November 2009 – SwishSwosh.com announce the release of their new range of limited edition t-shirts and this time it’s causing a bit of a stir. So much so that even priests are going wild!
Confused? Well let us shed some light. Slotted into their quirky range is a design that displays what can only be described as a priest with an erection. Sniggers and giggles aside, the design, named ‘Priests gone wild’ by designer “THEPIT” is proving to be a massive hit with users, having been voted into the top 10 t-shirts for both guys and girls.
Not everyone, however, is impressed, as Co-Director Louis Alexander explains:
“SwishSwosh recently received a firm letter from the Anglican Church saying that the image is ‘disrespectful and must be removed immediately.’ However, we have no intention of removing this t-shirt from our range.”
“We knew the design was going to be considered a bit racy, but we will always print what the community wants. The T-shirt was not intended to offend the priesthood; it is simply a fun and amusing design which people clearly like. SwishSwosh members voted and we printed.”
Comments on the designer’s profile indicate that at least SwishSwosh users can see the funny side, with one comment reading: “Naughty but nice!”
Launched in October 2009, SwishSwosh is a new website, which has been designed to showcase a host of specially-designed and limited edition tee shirts, encouraging users to submit their own designs and catchy slogans, which are voted on by the public. The most popular designs will go into production, with prizes and royalties for the winning designers.
SwishSwosh’s aim is to offer an alternative to the mainstream clothing lines offered by high street chains, allowing users to stand out from the crowd, with their own, exclusive clothing. The 100% super-combed cotton t shirts are screen printed and limited to 50 of each design, in each size. Those who have been successful in having their design chosen will receive £1100, plus a royalty of £0.50p for every t-shirt sold.
The fresh approach SwishSwosh are taking certainly means that people are sitting up and taking notice. Just over a month after going live, the website’s Facebook fan page has already notched up an impressive 12,000 fans and the company has also received celebrity endorsement, with the news that X-Factor judge Cheryl Cole has asked the Manchester-based company to produce a design for her.
