My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Check out all of our Geeky Subscription Boxes in the Subscription Box List. Rate, review, and follow this subscription on the Shirt Block profile page.


Each month, you’ll receive 5 exclusive prints from Shirt Block. There isn’t a theme, though, so selections can be from numerous fandoms.



Each month comes with an information card, like all other blocks. Here, you’ll find information about all the items in your box.

Each delivery will include a $10 ShirtPunch credit as well – you can buy an extra shirt or toy with it!

OK, on to the goods!


The Upside Down Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s featured shirt knocks it out of the park! This Stranger Things inspired shirt is from artist Barrett Biggers. Fans of the show will immediately spot the tree, the crew on their bikes, and, of course, Eleven.


Spider-Man Shirt – Value $15?

This month includes a Marvel shirt – it’s your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man! This looks similar to other Marvel license ShirtPunch tees – I like the basic comic book character tees, so it’s a win for me.


Deceptipop Shirt – Value $15?

They should actually make these popsicles! I like the color scheme of this shirt, while I’m not a Transformers fan, this is a fun design that I may have to keep.


All Your Friends Are Dead Shirt – Value $15?

This is AWESOME! This ugly Christmas sweater inspired Jason shirt is just in time for Halloween. I’m not sure I could improve on this design.


Surf Shop Shirt – Value $15?

Johnny Utah is Keanu Reeves’ character in the original Point Break.

Those years were a simpler time for Keanu when he was still reprising his role of Ted “Theodore” Logan.



Verdict: I loved my Shirt Block for the second month in a row. That being said, $40 (shipped) is a lot of money to dish out on a risk – so, it may help to have a theme or show off the featured franchises to reduce the risk. So far, I’ve been lucky enough to get a lot of shirts that I’ll wear and will cover the cost.

What did you think of the September Shirt Block?

  1. I thought the shirts were supposed to be exclusive. I already have the Stranger Things shirt and saw the Friday the 13th shirt on one of the daily sites. I just can’t remember where I bought the ST shirt, though I think it might have been Teefury.

  2. I love this month’s Shirt Block! The Jason shirt was my absolute fav being a horror fan but the Stranger Things was epic too. I did the first 2 months of this sub and overall I liked more than half of the shirts so that’s pretty cool. I really don’t need another 5 next month so I cancelled though. I hope they come up with theme’s for the block going forward because I know I’d sign up later on if I dug one of them. It’s a great deal if you use a coupon to buy the block because you also got 2 – $10 g.c.’s in the block to use at the new Nerd Block store launching Oct 20th and of course, Shirt Punch.

  3. There seems to only be 1-2 shirts I would want from these box. probably best for me to just buy them off ebay.

  4. The Friday the 13th shirt looks like the graphics from the Nintendo game. I used to play that game all the time! It was not easy. haha 🙂

    • That’s what I was going to say! It totally reminds me of that video game! It was so fun, but not at all that easy. I saw the message on the shirt many times. lol

  5. This really could be such a hit or miss – while I understand not everyone would want 4 shirts from say, Stranger Things (actually I would) but maybe a theme announced each month would make people more tempted to jump.

    However, being they’re exclusive items, I would suspect that the items you didn’t like would be easily sold on Ebay or in swaps.
