I'm Alex, a designer from Sheffield. I've been producing Citee, a collection of map T-shirts, since 2015. From an initial run of 80 map T-shirts the set has grown to over 300, but the one thing I hear from backers most is this: why don't shirts come in black?
They do now.
Choose from over 300 cities in three styles: white, black or duotone; then choose your size XS - XL.
View all shirt options:
Using OpenStreetMap data each T-shirt displays a beautifully-crafted map from cities across the globe. Producing one design is expensive but, with your help, I aim to raise enough money to pay for a large print run of both black and white shirts.
Each shirt is available in three options:
Look at the list of Citee map T-shirts below, then choose from the list of pledges. You can order in quantities of 1-10 items, mixing and matching any combination of black or white shirts in sizes XS to XL. I'll contact you at the end of the funding period to confirm your choices and delivery address.
Please note: shirts are printed all over the front, but the back of every shirt is white or black.

Rest of World
Each highly-detailed map is heat-transferred onto the front of the T-shirt: the light shirts are printed across the seams and sleeves, with the back left white; black shirts have black seams and sleeves, while the back is black. The design is effectively dyed into the fabric: unlike silkscreen-printed clothing there is no stiffness to the printed area, the ink won't crack or peel, and the colours don't fade in the wash.
Premium white American Apparel.
Premium quality, 100% polyester T-shirts made by American Apparel. Comfortable and lightweight, these super-soft unisex t-shirts ensure deep and bold colours – and feel great to wear. The back of each shirt is white.
Black and Duotone shirts.
These shirts feature a 100% polyester front panel, finished with black cotton sleeves, neck and back. Please note: black and duotone shirts are not manufactured by American Apparel.
The process can leave small areas of fabric white underarm, but this isn't visible when worn (please note returns will not be accepted for this reason). I use trusted production partners in the UK who specialise in sublimation printing, so you can be sure of great quality.
All T-shirts will be available from www.citeefashion.com when the campaign ends.
Risks and challenges
All Citee shirts are ready to print, so the challenge is raising enough money to produce them – and keeping on top of bulk orders. Sublimation printing takes time so, in the event of hundreds of backers, the main issue is processing their orders quickly.
As a professional designer I'm experienced at working with print companies and, having run seven successful Kickstarter projects, I can be trusted when it comes to fulfilment.
I track all items and will refund or replace orders in the event of lost or damaged post.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
