A New App Allows Users to Put T-Shirts on Monuments

The campaign, to celebrate the centennial of the T-shirt, runs through September 30.

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.
