The Inspiration – Each year, CafePress and some other larger t-shirt companies declare the first day of summer to be international t-shirt day. With a few days notice – some Pittsburgh t-shirt lovers got together to celebrate the best t-shirts in the burgh. Check out some photos from our summer celebration here. We had such a good time and got many emails that we wanted to plan a bigger better event to celebrate the t-shirts of Pittsburgh.

And, the event still has space for more purveyors of t-shirts!
