T-shirt Marketplace with a patriotic virtue
Just like in the case of Cotton Bureau – tshirt platform that promotes t-shirt designers with a minimalist style, 50 State Apparel caught my eye for its rather uncluttered prints that feature key elements of places around the United States, hence the name.
Launched at the end of 2015, each t-shirt is a celebration of a distinct experience around USA, the way designers see it. Then these products are exposed to the public and people with similar tastes purchase them. You guessed it – this is a marketplace for t-shirt designers to sell apparel, while promoting their favorite spots “in the land of the free”.
You don’t find much quality tourism apparel, neither online nor offline. It’s basically what prompted the owners of the platform to put this project together. You know souvenirs, how generic and impersonal they are. These t-shirts will change all that in a big way.
Designers submit their work and then “congress”, the site’s team review it and put it on the marketplace, while also taking care of the promotion. At the end of the month, the artist gets paid for the print that can either represent a state, a landmark or any other touristic attraction in the States. For more details, read the FAQ section carefully.
As far as an artists is concerned, the best part is that you get to keep the rights of the designs and you get to decide how to use and promote it.
