Music for the Manatees Transmission Depeche Modatees Short-Sleeve Softstyle Unisex T-Shirt

$29.00

Shipping to United States: $5.00



I’m taking a ride with my best Manatee friends to hear DJ Jake Rudh play on Transmission Night. This design is a parody of the album art for the 1998 Tribute to Depeche Mode, titled “For the Masses,” with an underwater twist. Friendly blue Manatees float around the orange megaphones, listening to classic New Wave, Dark Wave, and Pontoon Rock every Wednesday and weekend, transmitted through the internet waves.

Printed Tee Care Tips: wash inside out in cold water & mid detergent with other dark t-shirts (not with jeans or fuzzy fabrics!). NO FABRIC SOFTENER. Hang or lay flat to dry, or tumble dry extra low if needed.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Where do Curethreads come from?

    Curethreads are designed by Kate. Her graphics are sent electronically to print shops who print orders on demand, and ship them directly to your door. This is called “drop shipping.” Most of these print companies are located in the USA. Select items (primarily shirts and mugs) can be printed in locations in the UK, EU, Canada, China, and Australia. This is why you’ll see items marked as “EU ITEM ONLY” or categorized in the EU Shop section. When you order an item printed within your own country or territory, you avoid paying a premium for international shipping expenses, while reducing your carbon footprint.

    Can you ship a USA Only item to my country?

    In most cases, the answer is yes. However, international shipping may cost an additional $10-$30 USD PER ITEM. Import/export taxes will automatically be added to US items at checkout. In some cases you may also be required to pay duties to your local post office when the package arrives. Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter whether the item is a “gift” or not. If you want to send it as a gift, but don’t want the recipient to have to pay duties, have the item delivered to yourself.

    Care instructions

    For best results, use my home-tested method: Treat Curethreads like lingerie. 🖤
    1. Prep: Spot clean stains with mild detergent and cold water.
    2. Turn all items inside-out before laundering, including socks!
    3. Sort: Wash similar fabrics & colors together to prevent fading, friction, fuzzies, and pilling. I use mesh bags.
    4. Lesson learned: DO NOT WASH Curethreads with JEANS.
    5. Hand wash or machine wash on Delicates or Gentle cycle with cold water.
    6. Use a mild laundry detergent. NEVER USE bleach, vinegar, or fabric softener. These weaken the bond of the fabric + ink.
    7. Hang or lay flat to dry (including socks!)
    8. Roll rather than fold.

    All prints were created with a hot printing press, so AVOID HOT WATER to retain color & contrast.
