Our Story

History

tshirtmart est.1994 The first tshirtmart, located in San Diego, opened in 1994. Originally, it was simply a retail store selling shirts, socks, and other garments for near wholesale prices. Under the slogan "Tee Shirts 5 for $10", the store quickly became a tourist destination for souvenir “I LOVE SAN DIEGO” tees and a place to get affordable shirts.

In 1996, with the opening of its second retail location in El Cajon, the business added its first custom graphics department. Though it started out as only one computer and a 6-screen manual press, the department quickly grew, as customers embraced our walk-in, same-day printing operation.
