From the brand
How we got our start?
The Ann Arbor T-shirt Company grew from a dorm room project between two friends at the University of Michigan, to a couple of 22 year olds sleeping in a warehouse alongside their printing press, to a business with 50+ employees and a few dogs shipping apparel all around the world from Michigan!
What makes our product unique?
Most of our products are designed, printed, & embroidered completely in our Ann Arbor, MI factory. Our workers receive fair wages, healthcare, 401k matches, & meals. Machines, inks, & most inputs are U.S. sourced, & shirts mostly made of U.S. cotton. Producing in-house keeps quality up & prices low.
Why we love what we do?
Printing is where art meets life. We love bringing all of our customers’ ideas, passions, and identities to life with ink and thread. We use higher quality apparel that doesn’t break the bank, but which we love to wear ourselves, and take great pride in seeing how much our fans react to our stuff!
SUBTLE, DELICIOUS MEATS in the BACKGROUND | A gorgeous, vibrant dyed-in-the-fabric subtle print of a parade of delicious BBQ meats, set behind a classic Hawaiian floral print. You’ll be able to tell when people “get it” when all of a sudden they bust out laughing three hours into the BBQ
FUNNY PRINT, SERIOUS QUALITY | The print aside, the quality of this garment is no joke. A silky smooth, lightweight polyester blend manages moisture, with 8% spandex to give it a slight stretch in the shoulders – allowing for maximum range of partying and grilling motion.
UNISEX FIT SIZING | This garment should fit the same as any of your other button downs or Hawaiian shirts. Our model is a 6’2″, 200 lb handsome Saggitarious named Rich. (188cm, 91kg if you ain’t from around here)
THE DETAILS | Hawaiian shirts are about basking in the glorious sun while building a commendable BAC as the smell of charred animal candy gloriously fills your nose holes. They should NOT be about neck scratching. That’s why we put a tagless tag in, printed on the fabric.
DRAWN WITH PRIDE IN ANN ARBOR, MI | Our skilled illustrators worked their tails off on these. It required eating massive amounts of ribs, kabobs, chicken wings, steak, and brats to get everything just right, but our heros put themselves on the line to do it
