Shirt Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon – October 2016
Shirt Block is brand new from Nerd Block. They send out 5 geeky themed shirts each month. You can also switch you shirt sizes from month to month if you’d like to share the wealth!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Shirt Block
The Cost: $29.95 plus shipping (Shipping varies, $10.95 to US)
COUPON: Use coupon code NERDADDICTION to save 17% off your first month!
The Products: 5 geeky t-shirts in every box + $10 ShirtPunch voucher.
Ships to: US, Canada, and Worldwide!
Each month, you’ll receive 5 exclusive prints from Shirt Block. There isn’t a theme, though, so selections can be from numerous fandoms.
It always includes a card that details all 5 shirts.
It includes a $10 credit to ShirtPunch and their new e-store, which just launched!
I’m Still Free – Value $15?
The first shirt I saw this month features the famous lyrics to the Firefly theme song. It also shows off a cloud-like Serenity ship!
Furday The 13th Shirt – Value $15?
This month’s spotlight shirt is from Vincent Trinidad. His design features Jason Vorhees in cat form – this kind of feels like a Friday the 13th and Pet Sematary mashup to me.
Marvel Classic: The Avengers Shirt – Value $15?
This is the third month in a row that a Marvel shirt was included (you won’t see me complaining). This month features the classic Avengers team – including Wasp!
Chocobo Racing – Value $15?
This speedy, flightless, bird is from Final Fantasy. This is a fun shirt because any Final Fantasy player will immediately get the reference.
Bates Mansion – Value $15?
Bates Mansion gets the Disney treatment! I’ve never been a fan of any of the Psycho movies or Bates Motel series – so this is the only shirt that missed the mark for me this month.
Verdict: While 5 shirts a lot every month, especially if you’re subscribing to other geek boxes and almost certainly getting a shirt that month, the shirts in the past 3 boxes have been great. It’s a nice quality shirt and I’ve enjoyed the graphic design of the shirts more than the typical geek box shirt – but I’m not sure if that will push you over the edge for this subscription if you’re getting shirts every month anyways.
