I’ve got that map-Monday feeling and I want to show you all something I got for my husband this week; a map on a t-shirt. Not just any map – I could actually choose the location of the map and have it custom-printed. Cool, huh?The company I went to for this personalised top is MapOnShirt.com. I could choose any spot on earth and the map would be recreated on the clothing product of my choice – or even a pillow! Fabric is sublimation printed with the graphics of the map chosen (and any text or markers you wish to add) and then stitched up into a classic t-shirt silhouette. I didn’t want any graphics or text on the t-shirt so I went ahead and ordered a simple map of the Suffolk coast.The maps are also available in different colour themes, from bright pop-art colours to classy monochrome. I wanted a subtle design so went for a muted denim blue colourway to highlight the coastline shape on the t-shirt. I particularly like the fact that one sleeve is in the sea so is totally blue – very cool!When the finished article was delivered I was surprised by the great quality. The fabric was super-soft and the print finish was excellent, nothing like the basic custom-printed t-shirts I’ve ordered in the past. Hubby loved the t-shirt as much as I do and has been wearing it with jeans and beneath an open cotton shirt for a casual look.
What do you think of this idea for a personalised piece of clothing? What map would you choose to have printed? Let me know by leaving me a comment below – and happy map Monday everyone!
