T-Shirt Giveaway: Vote for a Chance to Win Your Favorite Design!

You asked for T-Shirts:

Readers of my books, especially those who enjoy Understanding Cemetery Symbols, keep asking me to create T-shirts using photos I take in historic graveyards. And while it’s fun creating mock up designs in, it’s intimidating. I’ve had no idea how to actually manufacture the T shirts – until now!

[Disclosure: I’m receiving free T-shirts for including a link to CreateAShirt in this post!]

The other day I got an email from They offered to print out some shirts for me in exchange for linking to their site, as I just did in the previous sentence. Pretty cool, eh?

I could use your advice

Here’s where you come in! I’ve got a TON of potential T-shirt designs, but I’m not sure which one to choose. I’ve narrowed the selection down to four of my favorite “Memento Mori” designs, but I can’t quite make up my mind…

Win one of the T-Shirts!

I could really use your opinion. Which of the following designs would you want to wear on a T-shirt? After you vote using the poll below, leave a comment on this blog post. As a thank you,  on 12/16/2017 I will choose three lucky people to receive one of the finished T-shirts. How fun is that?

Vote for ONE of the following designs:

Why “Memento Mori”?

As historic cemetery buffs may know, “Memento Mori” is Latin for “Remember you must die.” This grim phrase was a common epitaph back in the day! Now, it makes an interesting conversation starter. For example, you might want to wear it when you visit a friend who has a “Live, Love, Laugh” poster in their kitchen. Times certainly have changed, haven’t they?

PLACE YOUR VOTE BELOW – deadline 12/14/17:

Which T-shirt design should I print?

  1. Chris Charbonneau Chris Charbonneau

    Kiss of Death for sure ! (They’re all pretty boss though)

    • Thanks for voting, Chris! Yeah, that’s quite an eye-catching statue, isn’t it?

  2. I voted for The Hand Of God. I think it should be printed upside-down on the shirt, O Quirky One!

    • Thanks for voting, Ian! Well… if I printed it the other way, it would change the symbolic meaning. A hand reaching down like that symbolizes sudden death. Pointing up, it indicates that this person went to Heaven.

  3. Pat Nance Pat Nance

    Tough choices! I can see why you couldn’t decide. Praying Angel was my favorite & I voted for that one — but boy, Hand of God was real close. It was a toss up between those two for me!
    Good luck with the poll!

    • Thanks for voting, Pat! Eventually, I’m gonna print out all of these, I think. Can hardly wait to see which design wins!

  4. Heidi Fountain Heidi Fountain

    The kiss of death is my favorite! If I saw that on a bookshelf, I’d definitely grab it …😁💀☠️

  5. Jan Jan

    Love the Praying Angel. Voted for that one!

    • Yay! Thanks for voting, Jan! That design is winning, so far… but there are still a few days left! :D

  6. Jaren Gillis-Mey Jaren Gillis-Mey

    I voted. Love #4.

    • Whoo hoo! Thanks for voting, Jaren! I can hardly wait to see which T shirt design wins! :)

  7. “Failed To Verify Referrer”, but I voted for The Hand of God.

    • Thanks for voting! And I’ll add another vote to the Hand of God for ya! :)

  8. I voted for the Hand of God, but I have to admit, I am FASCINATED with the Kiss of Death! Any of them would be cool to have/wear/give.

    • Thanks for voting, Kristine! Yeah… I just couldn’t decide, myself. It’s fun seeing which ones people choose!

  9. Bonita Hansen Bonita Hansen

    Love the t-shirt designs! I voted for my favorite.
    Excited to see which one wins.

    Please put me in the running for a free t-shirt. I would wear it with pride.
    I enjoyed your book very much. I’ve encouraged my friends to get a copy (they saw mine and they were intrigued–good cover art, btw.)

    Such interesting things you do! Thank you for all your joyful creativity!

    • Yay! Thanks for voting, Bonita! This is exciting. I can hardly wait to see which shirt design wins! :D
