I hope everyone is able to enjoy the long weekend this Labor Day. There are a bunch of great sales going on now until Monday. Make a purchase and you’ll save some cash, pick up some rad gear, support some awesome companies, and stay the hell out of the mall (which is going to be a cluster). I’ll probably take advantage of a few of these. I tried to note which sales have the items discounted automatically, and which ones require you to enter a code at checkout.

Selected Dance Party Massacre items are discounted over at Fab.com. Create a free account for access to sales.

 
Not really a Labor Day sale, Design By Humans is offering 30% off with their coupon code, and a special bonus for 10 random winners.

Electric Zombie‘s back to school sale has been extended to Tuesday, 09/04. No code necessary, sale prices are indicated.

Receive 20% off at Karmaloop with the code above.

Mishka is offering 50% off their Summer 2012 items. No code necessary, the discounts are already listed.

 Another back to school sale, use the discount code above at Orcusonline shop.

PLNDR has two different sales going on for the weekend (in addition to their already discounted prices). The first is on everything on the site, the second is only on selected items. You have to create an account to take advantage of their sales, but it’s definitely worth it.

No code necessary at Tokidoki, where discounts are already listed on the sale pages.

50% off Vannen watches with discount code. Note that their website store accepts only credit cards, and their Bigcartel store accepts paypal. The code is valid in both sites.

Get 25% and free shipping at VNM.

I think the abundance of “Back to School” sales that begin in June and July are totally unfair to both kids and teachers. Who wants to be reminded of school in the middle of summer? That being said, if you’re already going through the supply list for yourself or your kids anyway, head over to Skulltastic. Man, I wish this stuff was around when I was in school. They have almost everything you might need – notebooks (you can even get them custom bound for lefties), pencils, rulers, and even glue (the Elm Street Glue is one of my favorite items). They even offer shirts and hats featuring their “scholarly” designs.

You can purchase the items exclusively from Skulltastic’s online store, but try not to think about studying just yet.

When buying shirts for myself, I usually prefer all over prints on the front and back of the t shirt. I do think front only all over prints look really attractive on women, though. Design By Humans supports my claim with their reprint of “Blackbird’s Attackin’ in the Dead ‘O’ Night.” The design is also a perfect example of how the clever use of negative space can create an awesome 1 color design.

It is available in both guys and girls cuts, but I personally would end up purchasing it for my girlfriend rather than myself. Just remember that this printing process does create a few “imperfections” around the collar and sleeves, making each shirt unique. If you order now, you can take advantage of Design By Humans “Back to School Sale,” which will get you free domestic shipping on U.S. orders (follow this link for the code).
