A Printed T-shirt is a T-shirt bearing a design, image or lettering on it. Printing is done with textile printing. Various types of printed T-shirts exist.

Concert T-shirt

A concert T-shirt is a T-shirt that is associated with a concert or a concert tour, usually rock or metal. Bands and musical groups often promote themselves by creating and selling or giving away T-shirts at their shows, tours and events. A concert T-shirt typically contains silk screened graphics of the name, logo, or image of a musical performer. A popular graphic on the rear of the T-shirts is a listing of information about the band's current tour, including tour cities (sometimes specifying venues) and corresponding dates.[1]

One of the most popular colors for concert T-shirts is a flat black.[2][3] Fans purchase or obtain these shirts to wear to future concerts, often with jeans, dark colored trousers or skirts. Fans may wear the shirt of one band to a concert of another to show their taste in a particular type of music or loyalty to another band or type of music.

Tourist T-shirt

A tourist T-shirt (or souvenir T-shirt) is a shirt associated with travel or a holiday. In recent years,[when?] T-shirts have become a popular gift or souvenir. Tourist T-shirt designs are typically screen printed with pictures and words directly associated with a particular city, country or culture. The T-shirts express or show something about the place or places a person has been.

Course T-shirt

A course T-shirt is a printed T-shirt with a military unit's insignia on it, printed up as a souvenir of attending and/or graduating a course of instruction.[4] Printed shirts bearing unit insignia date back to at least the Second World War.[5]

Art T-shirt

Several contemporary artists use a T-shirt as a canvas for their work. Art T-shirts can also be mass-produced with screen printing. Famous artists to have released T-shirts are Keith Haring, Takashi Murakami, Damien Hirst and KAWS.

Merchandise T-shirt

A merchandise T-shirt is a shirt associated with a brand or trademark. It is common to see famous bands, musicians, sports teams and TV characters being printed on T-shirts for the retail clothing trade in order to drive additional revenue. Proprietors of brands and trademarks can license them to distributors to distribute T-shirts that bear their brand or trademark for retail purposes as well. -
