If you’ve been to the Arrant Pedantry Store recently (and if you haven’t, then why not?), then you may have noticed a change that looks small but is actually pretty big: the ability to edit products. Now, instead of only being able to select from the products I’ve already created, you can make your own. Want to put Battlestar Grammatica on a hoodie, or Editing Is Awesome on a mug, or Grammar Is for Lovers on a thong?
It’s pretty easy. All you have to do is click on an existing product, then click “Do you want to edit the design?” at the bottom of the product picture. You’ll be taken to a screen where you can select the product, select and position the design, and choose the quantity and size. You can even change the color of the design itself, so you could get Stet Wars in red on a blue shirt or I Could Care Fewer in hot pink on a gray shirt or Eschew Obfuscation in black on a black shirt (though I don’t recommend the last one, unless you want to be extra funny).
When you’re done, you’ll go through the regular checkout process, and Spreadshirt will print your product and mail it out just like normal.
And if you order between February 3rd and 5th, you can use the coupon code GET20 to get 20 percent off when you order two or more products. And while you’re there, check out some of the new designs:
I should have posted this sooner, but better late than never. Spreadshirt, the home of the Arrant Pedantry Store, currently has a promotion for 15% off plus free shipping, and it ends tonight. If you’ve been thinking of getting one of the new We Can Even! shirts for that special person in your life for Christmas, now would be the perfect time.
Just use the code 2016OMG at checkout.
I’m pleased to announce a new T-shirt design in my shop: We Can Even! It’s a classic design updated for this modern era of being unable to even.
And through October 25, you can get free shipping on all orders in the Arrant Pedantry Store when you use the coupon code JUST4YOU at checkout.
It’s that time again! Now through May 1, get free shipping on orders of two or more shirts from the Arrant Pedantry Store when you use the coupon code TWOWOO. Oh, and did I mention that I have a new shirt design? Check it out!
To make up for not posting for a few months, I’ve added a few new shirts to the Arrant Pedantry Store. Take a look!
If you see a design you like but want it on a different shirt or other product, you can use the product designer here.
And through September 1, you can get 15 percent off all orders with the coupon code FAVSHIRT.
Good news, everyone! I have a new T-shirt design inspired by that one movie featuring the popular interlocking brick system.
Head over to the Arrant Pedantry Store to take a look.
I’ve also moved a couple of posts over here from a now-defunct site. When I finished grad school a couple of years ago, my wife and I launched a new site for our freelance editing endeavors, and shortly thereafter I got a full-time job. Though the site is gone, I wanted to keep our blog posts (all two of them) online, so you can now find them here.

First, I apologize for not blogging in so long. It’s been a crazy summer, complete with a new baby (yay!), a new job (yay!), and moving to a new house (boo!). I’ve got a few posts in the works and hope to have something done soon.
