Top Daily Tees of 2017

2017 has come to a close, so it’s time to reminisce about some of the daily t-shirt design industry’s biggest hits and most clever prints from the past year. As usual, there are some other sites that I’d like to include, but in order to put the list together I have to limit my focus to the sites that have current, up to date archives of their past print libraries. In no particular order, here’s a look at my personal top three prints from these daily tee sites this year…

So many references that even the most ardent fan will be impressed.

That’s What I Do by Manospd (September 5th, 2017)

A literary twist turned one of Game of Thrones’s most popular quotes into even more of a nerd motto.

Please Bear With Me by DinoMike (August 1st, 2017)

Simple and cute, this bear’s slightly asymmetrical features only add to his charms.

Hot Dog Summer by Vo Maria (July 26th, 2017)

This hot dog baking in the sun perfectly captures the chilled out feeling of a lazy summer day.

Good Luck Cat by Skylar Hogan (August 3rd, 2016)

I love the roughness of the illustration and the bored malevolence of the black cat’s expression.

Beautiful coloring makes this design a standout, a lovely mix of outer space and a forest nature scene.

I Dream of Freeze-Dried Ice Cream by Rasabi (May 21st, 2016)

A fun ode to the childhood dream that most of us never quite managed to experience, all done up in a style reminiscent of the real thing.
