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!
A simple, iconic print on a retro-style, silky soft baseball tee for anyone who loves D.C.!
The Ann Arbor T-shirt Company is composed of about 48 artists, screen printers, art techs, logistics professionals, embroiderers, and support staff, all operating out of Ann Arbor, Michigan.
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, better prints, more exacting quality control, etc. From top to bottom, our people are proud of the product we produce, and can’t wait to share it with you.

Awesome gift!Got this for a friend, and based on the fact that he wears it all the time while he has plenty of other tees to choose from, I’d say this one is a winner!

Nice light weight shirtYhe fabric is light weight which is good especially here in AZ. The red isn’t deep red its more of a light faded red. Still cool shirt especially when you are representing your love for Washington DC. Kinda reminds me of a retro style shirt.
Love this shirtI love this shirt. I wear it once a week at least. I love it with jeans or shorts. Its flattering and comfortable and I would buy any baseball shirt this t-shirt company designs. Awesome shirt and awesome company.
Go one size upDon’t just go one size larger if you’re on the fence, go one size larger than you normally wear no matter what. I always wear a large, which is what I ordered, and now I look like I’m trying on my wife’s clothes. I guess that’s the “modern fit”.
Good FittingI like the fit of this shirt, its loose but not too big. I don’t love the cotton but its not bad quality. Good packaging.
