Tall Tee: The Dogfather | Funny, Cute Dog Father Dad Owner Pet Doggo Pup Fun Humor T-Shirt
Tall Tee: The Dogfather | Funny, Cute Dog Father Dad Owner Pet Doggo Pup Fun Humor T-Shirt
  • Made in USA and Imported
  • TALL TEE CUT | Extra 3" longer on bottom compared to standard length fashion shirts
  • UNISEX MODERN FIT CUT | this shirt is slightly tapered to be a little less boxy than the old style of mass-market t-shirt. Nothing drastic, and most people wear the same size in our shirts as they do in all of their others, but you might go one size larger if you're on the fence. It is pre-shrunk, but like any high-cotton product, will still shrink slightly in the wash. Just because it's a tall tee doesn't mean it can't be a nice, modern fit
  • MICHIGAN ARTISTS & PRINTERS | this design was drawn and screen printed (silk screened) with pride by our skilled illustrators and printers in Ann Arbor. If you're ever in the area, stop by for a free tour and see how we make your apparel! Tagless tag is printed on fabric inside collar, you can't feel it.
  • SOFT FABRICS | This shirt is made of combed, ringspun cotton (and a dash of polyester to make the two-tone effect)- meaning that the cotton fibers were refined further than mass market tees for a smoother final thread, spun into an ultra-fine 32 singles knit. The result is a buttery smooth, soft tee! These are mid-weight shirts - a bit lighter than your mass-market, thick gym class t-shirts, but substantial / not see-through. It's a nice balance between comfort and durability
  • TOP QUALITY INKS | We use QCM screen printing inks, manufactured in Pineville, North Carolina. These are high quality inks - vibrant and durable, and highly crack resistant. We use top of the line printing presses and ovens (to cure inks) made by M&R in Illinois

Screen printing is like cooking: it's not rocket science, but it's really easy to screw up if you cut corners or use sub-par ingredients. That's why we...

We hire train and retain skilled professional screen printers embroiderers and logistics operators

we use top notch inks that last longer and are more vibrant while also being phalate free

we invest in usa made top of the line printing equipment which yields high quality prints quickly

Hire, train, and retain skilled professionals

We have internal apprentice and educational programs that result in screen printing professionals with a thorough understanding of how ink chemistry, curing heats, and apparel fibers all interplay. Getting the combinations wrong can result in crooked prints, faded inks, or scratchy shirt fabric.

Use top notch inks

We pay a bit more for top shelf inks because they are worth it! QCM inks are better for the environment (one of the first ink companies to go phthalate free), more vibrant, and last longer than the cheap stuff.

Invest in the best equipment

Our screen printing presses and support equipment are engineered and manufactured by M&R in Roselle, Illinois. Having the best tools allow our printers to move faster with less waste, allowing us to create high quality products at a lower cost, which we pass to you!
