ARG Olympia Traveller de Luxe S manual typewriter

80S, Retro and Vintage TYPEWRITER T-SHIRTS

Before the 80s home computer revolution had taken hold, the humble typewriter was the only low-cost method for producing a professional-looking, printed letter. Do you remember the ping? That was the only satisfying part of typing a letter. I also remember the aching fingers and, in my case, only when my waste paper basket was full of screwed-up balls of paper and my bottle of correction fluid was empty, did I finally manage to produce something that looked half decent!

When considering a theme for a retro 80s T-shirt, most people instantly think of the classic and iconic film and music industry designs. However, if you want something a bit more quirky then you probably have never considered wearing a Tee with a typewriter featured on the front.

Some of the most original and quirkiest designs can be found at who ship worldwide.

Okay, so let's take a look at what is available at 

As you can see, many of the typewriter's featured are quite a lot older than 1980s models. I particularly like the design with different coloured squares.

The design that features a loveheart displaying the message "free kisses" printed onto a piece of paper coming out of a typewriter is a very romantic idea, and this T-shirt is available in six colours. Of course, you don't have to wait until Valentine's Day to show your appreciation for your partner, and the shirt would make a lovely gift at almost any time of the year for displaying your affection.

This cute cartoon T-shirt is available for men and women in many colours, and the design can also be printed onto a hoodie or sweatshirt. If you're a fan of Snoopy and typewriters then this is the tee for you!

Or you may prefer this one. Hmm, I can't decide...

This electric typewriter tee for men has more of a retro 80s feel, especially with its neon green colour. Let's take a look at some more designs for men at Zazzle UK...

And for women...
