About this project
Citee map T-shirts will be available from www.citeefashion.com when the campaign ends.
I'm Alex, a designer from Sheffield. Last year I launched Citee, a collection of 80 map T-shirts, and now I'm back with over 150 brand new cities – 230 in total.
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. If you're looking for something to hang on your wall, all 230 designs are now available as posters.
What's new, and why I need your pledge.
To bring this project to life, I need to raise £1,000. This covers the minimum order of shirts from my supplier, and books time on press at the two printers I intend to use. While I have produced test prints showing a handful of new designs, the production costs are beyond reach without your support. Your pledge will help bring over 150 brand new shirt designs to life – including every US state capital, as well as over 230 never-before-seen posters.
Look at the list of Citee map T-shirts and map posters below, then choose from the list of pledges. You can order in quantities of 1-10 items, mixing and matching any combination of shirts and posters. I'll contact you at the end of the funding period to confirm your choices and delivery address. I'm now able to offer shirts in a wider range of sizes, from XS to XL.
Please note: shirts are printed all over the front, but the back of every shirt is white.

Rest of World
Every map listed is also available as a 50x50cm square giclee print. These are printed onto 230gsm archival paper in high resolution, in a choice of light blue or black. Like the T-shirts, all street names have been removed to provide a minimal, pure feel.
50x50cm is a standard framing size, and I can provide links to trusted framing suppliers if you cannot find a suitable local trader – for example IKEA UK stock 50x50cm frames. Posters are supplied unframed.
Every shirt design is available as a poster – that's over 230 designs.
If you don't want to pledge, you can still help by sharing on social media. Follow me on:
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. The back of each shirt is white. Shirts are available in five sizes: XS, Small, Medium, Large and XL.
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.
Any Citee map T-shirt can be printed as a giclee poster too.
Risks and challenges
Although all Citee shirts are ready to print, sublimation printing takes time. To process orders quickly, I may request certain backers provide details of their order before the end of the campaign. Please note items will not be sent until payment is cleared.
As a professional designer I'm experienced at working with print companies. I've run five successful Kickstarter campaigns and I know what I'm doing.
I track all items and will refund or replace orders in the event of lost or damaged post.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
