Sandman (a radio & television personality in Australia) is the comic creation of Sydneysider Steven Abbott. Steve describes "Sandy" (as he was known in the day) as: a lugubrious, miserable, totally self obsessed, only child, loser who speaks in a dull monotone voice.

Despite his shortcomings Sandy was shrewd observer of the human condition. Here are some of his better known slogans: Failure requires no preparation; It's easier to love something that reminds you of yourself; Losers create winners; Gimmicks create interest where originally there was none; The human body is made up of 90% praise; and ... Eat fast, it's good to finish first at something.

The character first appeared in 1980 as a morose tortoise in a show for children. Later the tortoise turned into Johnny Goodman, Master of Sad. In 1993 Johnny morphed into the Sandman who every morning for 7 years on ABC Radio Triple J delivered "Advice to the Unpopular", or shared his life via "204 Bell Street" (the world's slowest moving radio serial). In 1997 he moved on to television and is perhaps best remembered for appearing totally naked to a national audience.

This inspired Michael Bell design first appeared on a T Shirt in 1994.

Shipping & Returns

We ship from REMO in Bondi. However, just about everything bearing a design is now printed to order and shipped from a production facility in Victoria. This new process takes a little longer, but the wait is worthwhile. For Regular Shipping orders, it takes roughly 7 to 15 business days to custom print and deliver your order using Australia Post. Some places outside metropolitan areas may take a bit longer. Need them a bit faster? Select the Express delivery option and we will use that method of shipping, although this will not speed the production process itself.Please note that international orders may be subject to additional customs fees and duties, which are the responsibility of the customer.CustOMERs can return or exchange for any reason whatsoever. Please just send the items back to us at PO Box 7488 Bondi Beach 2026 in the original packaging with clear exchange or return instructions.Having said this, all REMO merchandise bearing designs is now custom made to order. We do not operate a physical store and have no use for returned t shirts. Therefore, we would ask you then to please be very careful with T Shirt size selection. There is a table on every T Shirt product page that sets out relatively exact measurements for both width and length of the various sizes. If you have a T Shirt you like and a ruler near by, you should be able to work out your size. Also, AS Colour is a relatively well known brand, especially in the Australian market, so many of you would already know your size for that brand.
