Design by Colin Decker

Every Litographs t-shirt is created entirely from the text of a classic book.

Our shirts are printed all-over, which means that the design - the text from each book - covers every inch. The text is completely legible. We print locally, in Cambridge, MA.

The average Litographs t-shirt contains approximately 40,000 words (about the length of a short novel).

Litographs t-shirts are printed using a process called dye sublimation. Of all the printing methods we've tested, dye sublimation stands out for its resolution, comfort, and durability.

Our shirts are made using white, Vapor brand T-Shirts produced specifically for dye sublimation. Vapor tees are made with high-quality, 100% spun polyester to deliver the look and feel of cotton with the benefits of polyester, like superior sweat wicking. Dye sublimation printing produces vibrant, super-soft, permanent prints that are guaranteed to never crack, peel or flake.

Expect to see a small number of white creases under the arms. These are a standard feature of dye-sublimated t-shirts. 

About Dye Sublimation

First, the design is printed onto heat-resistant paper. The paper is then arranged on a blank t-shirt and fed into a large heat press. As the press heats up to 350 degrees, the pigments vaporize and quickly bond with the t-shirt fibers.

The key feature of dye sublimated clothing is that the design is not printed on top of the garment. Rather, the design is permanently dyed into the threads of the shirt itself, ensuring that it will never fade.
