In Oak Park, a little business started up to capitalize on the growing popularity of T shirts, and that business was called “Shirtworks.” A family business then and a family business today, we are proud to make T shirts, hats, jackets, and dozens of other items for the great people of Chicago and surrounding suburbs.
Probably the most popular T shirts that year were bicentennial related shirts, and we can still remember how busy we were that summer. People just couldn’t get enough of the big 200th birthday party. It was fun!
We are happy to still be here, making custom T shirts for every conceivable event, celebration, and sometimes just for the fun of it. You may email us your artwork and tell us what kind of order you’re thinking about. We’ll get on it right away and get back to you with a quote. We are proud of our work, and we promise that we will not consider the job done until you are 100% satisfied.
Come visit our store in Oak Park, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get going!
