So, here are, in no particular order, our favorite t-shirt stores on Shopify.
Top Shopify t-shirt stores
If you’re looking for t-shirts that stand out from the crowd, Shelfies should be your first port of call.
Their t-shirts feature vibrant and photorealistic, all-over print designs with the goal of “making you smile.” From Joe Biden eating ice cream to sloths sleeping on top of pizzas and cats enjoying cocktails to cigarette butts, there is a design for everyone.
Founded in Toronto in 2013, where they still design and manufacture their t-shirts, Shelfies now ships their products to over 40 different countries every month.
They have also had their products featured in multiple outlets including GQ UK, Fashion Journal, NBC, CTV, NOW! Magazine, The Huffington Post, and Complex Magazine. Their t-shirts have also been worn by Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau among other celebrities.
TeeFury is the brainchild of a bunch of artists who shared a passion for limited edition t-shirts.
Being around since 2008, today TeeFury releases new, limited edition, pop culture t-shirt designs from artists every 24 hours.
During the initial sale, artists earn $1 for every t-shirt sold after which the design is moved into TeeFury’s online gallery where fans (TeeFurians) can vote for which ones they want to go on sale again.
This makes TeeFury not only one of the best Shopify t-shirt stores, but also a great way to support independent artists.
3) Factory 43
What do you get when two friends with a shared passion for design, sense of humor, and love of t-shirts create a Shopify store? Factory 43.
Founded by Andrew Saeger and Veronica Velasco, Factory 43 still only sells designs from their original illustrations.
With Saeger holding a BFA in Visual Communications and Velasco having worked as a graphic designer for more than a decade before working on Factory 43 full time, it’s perhaps not surprising that their t-shirt designs have earned official recognition from Communication Arts and the Society of Illustrators.
MAKE brands themselves as “the most creative store in the universe” and their array of different designs certainly lives up to that bold claim.
Unlike other stores selling t-shirts, MAKE also lets its customers create their own t-shirt designs both in-store and online.
Having been around for over 25 years, founder Stacy Hall has built up MAKE into the hub for artisans and design lovers it is today.
5) Think Pup
Dog-lovers beware! Visiting Think Pup’s online store is sure to have you adding t-shirt after t-shirt to your ‘doggy bag.’
Being “for puppy lovers, by puppy lovers,” Think Pup aims to be the number one online destination for high-quality and attractive apparel for dog lovers.
They also invite you to share pics of your pup on Instagram with the #thinkpup hashtag which is a great way they entice user-generated content.
