The shirts are on press at Ape Do Good.
The 2007 "Type Specimen" tee was designed by Christian Robertson, a longtime Typophile member and moderator who joined Punchcut in 2004. Christian designed the popular typefaces Dear Sarah and Pill Gothic. The "Type Specimen" tee takes its cues from 1923 ATF type specimen books. Rather than finding a historical looking typeface for the design, Christian drew an American gothic inspired typeface from scratch. The shirt will be available on August 1 to attendees of TypeCon, Seattle. It will then be made available for purchase from Typophile.com.

Here's a little tease before we can show you the final...
A quick tease of the proof. Not the final layout, nor the final color. The ink is a new eco-friendly "water-based" process that actually strips away pigment in the tee. The result is a very soft feel (no thick layer of ink) and a more subtle look. It also allows for some killer overprinting effects.
