T-shirts will be available from www.citeefashion.com when the campaign ends.
I'm Alex, designer at TruthStudio in Sheffield, and I need your help to create a series of map t-shirts.
Using OpenStreetMap data each t-shirt displays a beautifully-crafted map from one of 80 cities across the globe. Producing one t-shirt is expensive but, with your help, I aim to raise enough money to pay for a large print run – and make each design affordable.
Look at the list of Citee shirts below, then choose from the list of pledges. You can order in quantities of 1-5 items, and I'll contact you at the end of the funding period to confirm your choice of shirt, size, and delivery address.
Click on a city to open each shirt in a new window, or scroll down the page to view all 80 shirts in alphabetical order.

What your money pays for.
All funds raised go towards production and distribution costs. The £2,000 target means I can reduce the production costs of a single shirt but, if I can raise over £10,000, I may be able to buy my own print equipment and produce small runs of shirts in future at an affordable price.

American Apparel t-shirts.
Each design is printed on 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.
Each highly-detailed map is heat-transferred onto the front of the t-shirt – including seams and sleeves, with the back left white. 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.
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.
Risks and challenges
All Citee shirts are ready to print, so the only 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. The t-shirts will be produced by two print companies but, should there be a huge demand, I've sourced a further two companies to share the workload.
As a professional designer I'm experienced at working with print companies and, having run three successful Kickstarter projects (900 limited-edition silkscreen prints delivered worldwide), 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
