Growing up in a family that moved every 2-4 years, I’ve lived all over the country, and I can say with confidence that no one (I mean NO ONE) has the state pride that Michigan does.
Maybe it’s the rich history of automotive industry, maybe it’s the amazing lakes (there are more than 11,500 of them in Michigan), or hell, maybe it’s just the pride of being the home to such greats as Madonna, Eminem, Tim “The Toolman” Taylor, Vernor’s, Derek Jeter, and Little Caesars. Regardless, the great people of Michigan love this state, and we’re with them!
This spring we’ve found and collaborated with some amazing artists to bring to you fun custom Michigan items, perfect to show that state pride! Take a peek!
Michigan Mugs. Start your morning out right with your coffee in an adorable Ann Arbor or Michigan custom mug. These items are new this spring, and I’m telling you, your coffee and/or desk will never be the same!
Smitten with the Mitten Print. This print is a Rock Paper Scissors exclusive, illustrated and pressed by the UH.MAZING Ladyfingers Letterpress. The design first made its debut in the Rock Paper Scissors Christmas card by Ladyfingers and is now available online & in stores, as both a print and a postcard. We can’t get enough of the cute details—the lettering, the adorable “Cheeseland” and “Canada, eh?” illustrations, I mean come on!
Damn it Feels Good to Be A Michigangster. These exclusive T-shirts (available in sizes S-XXL) were created at RPS and were screenprinted in Ypsilanti at one of our favorite print shops, VG Kids. Inspired by the state of Michigan crest, every Michigangster needs one of these bad boys!
The Michigan State Fair Journals from Belle & Union are the perfect notebook to tote around and show your state pride. Each journal comes with a magnetic button of your choice — keep it on your journal, on your fridge, or even as clothing or tote bag accessory. Not a journal keeper? No big deal- the custom magnets/buttons will be available on their own in Ann Arbor starting this week!
