Custom Printing UK: Tomorrow is the 5th of November and it has brought out my inner Guy Fawkes. No, I don’t plan on blowing up any building or structure. I will, very peacefully, showcase some of the greatest revolution t-shirts of all time.
Quick history lesson: ‘Remember, remember the 5th of November’. Some of you probably just remember this phrase from the V for Vendetta movie, but there is historical significance that will make the scene and phrase make much more sense. Guy Fawkes was originally a revolutionary involved in planning what is called the Gunpowder Plot, whose mission was to demolish the Palace of Westminster with King James I in it. Because of an anonymous letter, Fawkes was caught. Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Bonfire Night or Fireworks Night, is now celebrated with commemorating the survival of the King and thanksgiving for the failure of the plot by lighting bonfires and fireworks.
T-shirts are the perfect way to express your feelings towards a cause, person, or group. T-shirts remove the need to constantly remind everyone of what team or side you support. It is very rare that people wear a t-shirt that they do not feel comfortable supporting. T-shirt printing is the way to go! I can barely think of a protest, a cause, or a team win a championship that hasn’t ordered some printed t-shirts. If t-shirts were invented back in the day, I wouldn’t doubt that they would have had some t-shirts printed in support.
Throughout history there have been many a revolution t-shirts supporting different causes and people. One of the most famous, if not THE most famous revolution t-shirt, is that of Che Guevara! There will probably be some more that your recognize in this selection. I don’t actively support any of these; I just thought that it would be interesting to have a look at revolution t-shirts in honour of the 5th of November!
