Like paper dolls, national monuments, or T-shirts? How about all three? It’s an odd combination, but believe it or not, there’s an app for that.

To celebrate the 100th birthday of the T-shirt, a company called Customink has created an app that allows users to dress the monument of their choice with a custom-designed T-shirt. Sound a little loopy? Sure, but fun, too, and after all, it’s still summer.

The app is for iPhone and Android devices.

The monuments involved in the T-shirt design project include the Thomas Jefferson Memorial here; the Atlas at Rockefeller Center, New York; the Jimi Hendrix Commemorative Statue in Seattle, Washington; the Rocky Statue in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; the Bronze Fonz in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and the Surfing Monument in Santa Cruz, California.

Feeling creative? Get started.
