Berkeleyside is excited to present its first real, “official” T-shirt.

Designed for us by local graphic designer Rob Arias (also the founder of Emeryville news site E’Ville Eye), and custom-made right here in the Bay Area by The Sewing Mills, a sister company of Berkeley’s Harvest & Mill, the Ts feature an original neighborhood map of Berkeley, come in unisex sizes small through extra-large, and are in a great charcoal color with pale gray text on a soft cotton-mix material.

The T-shirts are for sale on pre-order through Berkeleyside’s online shop at The Sewing Mills, priced at $30.

Pre-order a T-shirt online (delivery after Jan. 16).

We invite you to support your award-winning independent news site by becoming a Berkeleyside member. If you sign up now as a new member at the $10 per month level or higher, you will receive the Berkeleyside T-shirt for free.

And we haven’t forgotten our much-valued existing members, who get a 33% discount on the T-shirts: member price is just $20. If you are a Berkeleyside member, simply email with subject header “Members T-shirt” and we will send you a promo code.
