web site gathers together quality celtic art t-shirts from
a large number of independent designers.
from all over the world have begun to find ways to get their
own work online and available to the public through the use
of fulfillment services. What that means is that a single
artist can create a design, decide what types of merchandise
to place the design on, and then use a fulfillment service
to produce the goods, take the orders, and ship the products.
an amazingly powerful thing for an independent artist to be
able to do.
it's just the beginning. The world wide web is filled with
web sites, blogs, shops, and destinations of all sorts. There's
a different sort of art to making sure that one artist's work
gets found by the millions of people who may be interested
in it - and once found, if there's only a small number of
t-shirts at an artist's own page, that page may not get bookmarked
That's how it looks from the artist's
side. It's easy to make the work available, but it's not so
easy to help other people find it.
And from the shopper's side, there are
online marketplaces where you can find this work, but they're
filled with literally millions of designs and artists that
may not interest you at all. In a world where anyone
can make their work available - well, they do. And
it's quite a task to sort out the good stuff from the chaff.
The artists whose work appears on the
celtic-tshirts site have been hand picked. They're all people
who are doing high quality work in one or more Celtic styles.
While tastes vary, if Celtic art is your thing, you're going
to like a lot of what's here.
There's plenty to look at, but it's
all good and it's all Celtic art. Most of the work of weeding
through the rest of it has already been done for you.
In each section of this site, the newest
shirts always come up first. That means that when you come
back, you can browse the first couple of pages of a section
to see what's just come in, but you can still dig deeper to
see what you may have missed or forgotten.
In every way, celtic-tshirts.com has
been designed to make shopping simpler, and to promote the
very best Celtic art t-shirts you'll be able to find from
dozens of different artists who work in this style.
And back on the other hand, it's been
devised to promote the work of those artists in one
place that's easy to find, and which scores highly in search
engine listings - so that more people than ever can discover
the work that these artists are doing.

on the kind of shirt I want!
individual artists decide what types of shirts are best
suited to each design; because this site gathers together
the work of so many people, it's not possible for me
to take special orders for other items. But if you check
back in the future you may find that an artist has added
aren't the prices all the same?
Each artist sets the
markup on their items individually, based on the work
involved and what they feel their art is worth. So you'll
see a range of about one to five dollars from the least
expensive shirt to the most expensive one.

The artists on this
site all produce and distribute their shirts through
CafePress. If your favorite artist doesn't do the same,
that work won't appear here - this is the only way we
can sell every shirt through the same shopping cart.
