26 Examples of Online T-Shirt Shops

June 15, 2009

Many e-commerce and shopping websites suffer from poor quality design.

However, when it comes to online t-shirt shops, creativity is high and there are plenty of designs that are worthy of mention.

Many of these sites target the artists who create t-shirt designs, so it seems natural that they would feature an attractive website design.

As you browse through this gallery of online t-shirt shops, there are a few design trends that are worth pointing out ...

1. Creativity

The level of creativity of these t-shirt shops is much higher than on most typical e-commerce sites. The creativity is apparent in the design styles, in the messages displayed on the t-shirts, and in some cases in the way that they market the t-shirts.

Many of these sites also target creative designers and artists who want to create their own t-shirt design concepts for sale on the site.

2. Simplicity of Product Lines

Many of the sites featured here focus exclusively on t-shirts.

When this is the case, an organized, usable and attractive website is much easier to accomplish than when a site is selling thousands of different products in a wide variety of categories.

These focused sites are able to showcase the t-shirts without tons of different products creating clutter.

3. Colorful

Although there are some exceptions, most of the sites featured here are very colorful. Many of the t-shirts are intended to be fun and lively, and the colors of the websites help to create the appropriate environment.

4. Variety of Design Styles

This is probably more of a lack of trend, but these t-shirt shops use all different kinds of design styles.

Some are grungy, while others are minimal or web 2.0 in style. Some are dark, others are light. Each site creates its own personality, in part through the chosen style of design.
