Here’s Tom Klein’s t-shirt design for 2016. We stopped accepting advance orders on September 20 to give our vendor time to print the t-shirts; we’ll have some extras for sale at the event. If you ordered and paid for your t-shirt when you registered (before Sept. 20), you can pick up your t-shirt at the event.

  1. Hi Deirdre — the only way to order this year’s t-shirt design is to through the tionól registration form: if you’re planning to come to the tionól you can order one and we’ll have it for you there. But we aren’t using café press anymore; we weren’t really happy with their quality. If you want to order a t-shirt with this year’s design and have it sent to you, please reply here and we’ll get in touch with you.

    1. Hi — t-shirts will be available to buy during the event. The only way to order in advance is by registering for the event. When you register there’s an option to buy t-shirts.
