Many of you have been asking for these, so we thought we would try and see if a limited run of them would sell (if they don’t then the dev team will have a new wardrobe 😉).
The t-shirts we are selling are made of a very comfortable tri-blend of materials. It doesn’t feel like a cheap, generic shirt; it’s one you could wear all day. They also have some nice tear-away tags that don’t ruin the collar. Continue reading “Get Your Pi-hole T-shirt While Supplies Last”
