Zombie Rescue Station T-Shirts: Review and giveaway!

zombie shirt


Zombie Rescue Station was founded in 2004, by Bill Kingston, at Ithaca College (which is actually incredibly close to my house). At first, just a few t-shirts were sold as a final project for an e-Commerce class. When the t-shirts picked up in popularity, Bill decided to extend the project into a business! In 2007, the company had expanded enough for Bill and his wife to move the company from their home in Rochester, NY, to an office space. Then, in 2012, Zombie Rescue Station began operating out of a full sized warehouse, with 15 full time and 2 part time employees. 

Zombie Rescue Station strives to bring you original and humorous t-shirts zombie-related t-shirts that are made out of quality materials. Around 80% of their t-shirts have custom designs from the company, and the other 20% come from partner companies, such as Junk Food, Ripple Junction, David & Goliath, and Goodie Two Sleeves. They also operate a screen-printing shop for customers and businesses alike. 


Although there are far too many t-shirts on Zombie Rescue Station to introduce you to, here are the categories you can explore:

  • Kid's Tees and Baby Shirts
  • Women's T-Shirts
  • Men's T-Shirts
  • Sweatshirts and Hoodies
  • Maternity T-Shirts
  • Gay Pride T-Shirts

Here are a few of my favorites that I found while browsing the Zombie Rescue Station website:

Zombie Tripping T Shirt 

I mean.. it's all about survival of the fittest, right?

Zombies Ate My Stick Family t shirt 
 Have you seen those "stick figure families" people have on the backs of their mini vans? I'd much rather have some zombie decals!

Zombie Hands T Shirt 
I just think this shirt is really cute, simple, and artsy. I love the colors and the design!



Zombie Rescue Station was nice enough to send me a t-shirt of my choice from their website for review, so that I could share my opinions with you. I chose to review the "Hershel's Farm Walking Dead" T-shirt. Here is the description from Zombie Rescue Station: "Only $9.99 a month? What a steal! Pick up this Hershel's Farm Walking Dead t shirt and never run out of space to store your zombies! This funny Hershel tee is a must for zombie fans!" It has the following features:
  • Great Colors
  • Soft, Stylish, Versatile
  • Quick Shipping through USPS 
  •  High Quality, Lightweight, Soft Cotton T-shirts


I actually let my boyfriend pick out a shirt to review, because I feel like I am always the one getting cool, new things and I rarely get something that is solely for him to review. He chose the Hershel's Farm Walking Dead shirt because he (like I) loves The Walking Dead. I knew that he would pick this one when I was browsing the website. The reference is pretty funny if you have seen the show - if not, I don't think it will ruin it for you if you try not to think about it too deeply! My boyfriend loved the colors of the shirt, because he has far too many black shirts and not enough variation. The gray/brown is a nice base color against the light tan. 

He also loved how soft the shirt was, and I noticed him keep touching it after he put it on, as if mesmerized. He wears the Hershel's Farm Walking Dead shirt around the house when he wants to be comfortable, and he also wears it when he are going out to the store or various other places. I asked him if he intended on wearing it to the gym, but he said that although it is super comfortable, the color makes it not the most ideal shirt for the gym because it could easily show sweat. I hang all of my shirts and pants up immediately after washing them because I am afraid of my things shrinking, but my boyfriend put his shirt right in the dryer on low and didn't notice any shrinking. He ordered a medium, and it is just about the perfect size for him. I noticed that the girl's shirts run a bit small, but the men's shirts seem to correlate well with the appropriate size. He really loves his new shirt and was happy to review it!
Do you love Walking Dead references? You can purchase the Hershel's Farm Walking Dead T-Shirt for just $16.99. It is available in men's and women's sizes from small to 4XL (add an extra $3.00 for this option).

I wanted to submit my review in a more timely manner, and my boyfriend happens to have gone home for a few days, so as soon as he returns I will post a picture of him in his shirt!

  29. People know what it's like to face the challenge of cleaning a messy bedroom. Sometimes, it can feel like you're about to climb Mount Everest when all you're really doing is putting some clothes and books away. Luckily, it doesn't have to be as hard as scaling the tallest peak. Follow these simple steps to make cleaning your room a walk in the park rather than a mountain climbing race. شركة مكافحة حشرات بجدة شركة مكافحة النمل الابيض بجدة شركة كشف تسربات المياه بجدة شركة تسليك مجارى بجدة شركة مكافحة حشرات بالاحساء شركة مكافحة النمل الابيض بالاحساء شركة كشف تسربات المياه بالاحساء

  31. Plan out when you will take a break. Taking a break to eat, drink, and kick up your heels is often a good idea. However, don’t let yourself become too distracted during your break! Plan out a chosen amount of time that you will take a break for. It is best to take a break after you have completed an entire task rather than in the middle of it. One example could be that you plan to take a break after you have cleaned out under your bed and before you start organizing the smaller things in your room.
    • Don't take a break if the time of your break comes around and you feel as though you're on a roll. Use that feeling of being on a roll to get even more done!
