The Ann Arbor T-shirt Company is composed of dozens of artists, screen printers, art techs, logistics professionals, embroiderers, and support staff, all operating out of Ann Arbor, Michigan (about 40 miles west of Detroit).

We give our employees subsidized healthcare, a 401k match, company soccer and kickball teams, catered employee lunches, and quarterly company parties around town. While we believe in treating our employees with respect as a matter of course, it makes business sense, too. Happy people make better shirts – cooler art, higher quality prints, more exacting quality control, etc.

From top to bottom, our people are proud of the product we produce, and cannot wait to share it with you. If you ever find yourself in Ann Arbor, stop in for some coffee and a tour – we’d love to show you how we make our stuff!

Our illustrators and designers create the artwork

Art techs convert the art into component screens (which were made of silk in the old days, hence “screen printing” or “silk screening”)

Skilled screen printers and their apprentices apply ink through the screens. We use top of the line M&R carousel presses manufactured in Illinois

Our warehouse team checks quality, bags, and boxes the apparel for shipment to fulfillment centers across the country

Hire, train, and retain skilled professionals

We have internal apprentice and educational programs that result in screen printing professionals with a thorough understanding of how ink chemistry, curing heats, and apparel fibers all interplay. Getting the combinations wrong can result in crooked prints, faded inks, or scratchy shirt fabric.

Use top notch inks

We pay a bit more for top shelf inks because they are worth it! QCM inks are better for the environment (one of the first ink companies to go phthalate free), more vibrant, and last longer than the cheap stuff.

Invest in the best equipment

Our screen printing presses and support equipment are engineered and manufactured by M&R in Roselle, Illinois. Having the best tools allow our printers to move faster with less waste, allowing us to create high quality products at a lower cost, which we pass to you!

WOMEN’S FIT, but NOT MATERNITY – this is a regular women’s fit (please see size chart in photo block). It does not have a stomach rouche or pouch for a third trimester belly 🙂 It is a relaxed fit garment and not too form fitting, but it is not an actual maternity top
WOMEN’S FIT SIZING | this v-neck shirt is contoured for adult women, but is not a junior’s cut. It is pre-shrunk, and as it is only 25% cotton, will not shrink significantly in the wash.
SOFT FABRICS |This top is a silky smooth, lightweight tri-blend made of cotton, polyester, and rayon. This gives it a vintage, retro heathered look and elegant, soft touch. Tag is tearaway.
TOP QUALITY INKS | We use QCM screen printing inks, manufactured in Pineville, North Carolina. These are high quality inks – vibrant and durable, and highly crack resistant. Some of our designs are intentionally faded or cracked (see product photos), but our inks always “do what they are told” by our printers. We use top of the line printing presses and ovens (to cure inks) made by M&R in Illinois
SAFE CHEMISTRY | QCM has been one of the most forward-thinking ink manufacturers in the industry, going phthalate-free over ten years ago – way ahead of the curve. They’re also CFC free and rated as carcinogen-free by the state of California
