At Spreadshirt, it’s perfectly normal to be obsessed with custom t-shirts. We are, after all, a custom t-shirt company. So it didn’t surprise anyone when we decided to take a closer look into the history of the custom t-shirt as well as tried to uncover some of the more unique facets of the humble t-shirt.
What we found was pretty cool: like how the first custom t-shirt was actually printed in 1939 and used on the set of The Wizard of Oz. It seems that the I Heart design really fit the Tin Man well. Or how about the fact that until the 1950s, custom t-shirts were typically regarded as undershirts not to be worn by themselves? Could you imagine no “Keep Calm” t-shirts or “Cool Story Bro” designs for the world to see?
