Tall Tee: I Don’t Need Google, My Wife Knows Everything! | Funny Husband Dad Groom T-Shirt
Graphic Tshirt Product Features:
Made in USA and Imported
TALL TEE CUT | Extra 3″ longer on bottom compared to standard length fashion shirts
UNISEX MODERN FIT CUT | this shirt is slightly tapered to be a little less boxy than the old style of mass-market t-shirt. Nothing drastic, and most people wear the same size in our shirts as they do in all of their others, but you might go one size larger if you’re on the fence. It is pre-shrunk, but like any high-cotton product, will still shrink slightly in the wash. Just because it’s a tall tee doesn’t mean it can’t be a nice, modern fit
MICHIGAN ARTISTS & PRINTERS | this design was drawn and screen printed (silk screened) with pride by our skilled illustrators and printers in Ann Arbor. If you’re ever in the area, stop by for a free tour and see how we make your apparel! Tagless tag is printed on fabric inside collar, you can’t feel it.
SOFT FABRICS | This shirt is made of combed, ringspun cotton (and a dash of polyester to make the two-tone effect)- meaning that the cotton fibers were refined further than mass market tees for a smoother final thread, spun into an ultra-fine 32 singles knit. The result is a buttery smooth, soft tee! These are mid-weight shirts – a bit lighter than your mass-market, thick gym class t-shirts, but substantial / not see-through. It’s a nice balance between comfort and durability
TOP QUALITY INKS | We use QCM screen printing inks, manufactured in Pineville, North Carolina. These are high quality inks – vibrant and durable, and highly crack resistant. We use top of the line printing presses and ovens (to cure inks) made by M&R in Illinois
The Ann Arbor T-shirt Company is composed dozens of artists, screen printers, art techs, logistics professionals, embroiderers, and support staff, all operating out of Ann Arbor, Michigan (about 40 miles west of Detroit).
We give our employees subsidized healthcare, a 401k match, company soccer and kickball teams, catered employee lunches, and quarterly company parties around town. While we believe in treating our employees with respect as a matter of course, it makes business sense, too. Happy people make better shirts – cooler art, better prints, more exacting quality control, etc.
From top to bottom, our people are proud of the product we produce, and can’t wait to share it with you. If you ever find yourself in Ann Arbor, stop in for some coffee and a tour – we’d love to show you how we make our stuff!
“I Don’t Need Google, my Wife Knows Everything” Tall Tee
A slightly tapered take on the tall tee for a slightly more athletic, stylish fit. Bottom hem on backside is curved to give you a little more cover when bending over. Printed with pride and gratitude in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
So what went into this
Our illustrators and designers create the artwork
Art techs convert the art into component screens (which were made of silk in the old days, hence “screen printing” or “silk screening”)
Skilled screen printers and their apprentices apply ink through the screens. We use top of the line M&R carousel presses manufactured in Illinois
Our warehouse team checks quality, bags, and boxes the apparel for shipment to fulfillment centers across the country

Screen printing is like cooking: it’s not rocket science, but it’s really easy to screw up if you cut corners or use sub-par ingredients. That’s why we…
Hire, train, and retain skilled professionals
We have internal apprentice and educational programs that result in screen printing professionals with a thorough understanding of how ink chemistry, curing heats, and apparel fibers all interplay. Getting the combinations wrong can result in crooked prints, faded inks, or scratchy shirt fabric.
Use top notch inks
We pay a bit more for top shelf inks because they are worth it! QCM inks are better for the environment (one of the first ink companies to go phthalate free), more vibrant, and last longer than the cheap stuff.
Invest in the best equipment
Our screen printing presses and support equipment are engineered and manufactured by M&R in Roselle, Illinois. Having the best tools allow our printers to move faster with less waste, allowing us to create high quality products at a lower cost, which we pass to you!
