Stamp Act Satire Vintage Graphic T-Shirt

Liberty Maniacs

Through the Stamp Act (1765) the British imposed taxes on a variety of colonial goods, including a direct tax on printed materials in the colonies that were to be produced on stamped paper produced in London, carrying an embossed revenue stamp. The act was met with anger and resistance, sometimes in the form of satirical fliers warning of the effects of the tax.  Publishers of newspapers were heavily burdened by the tax, so much of the press became reliable allies of the burgeoning Sons of Liberty protest movement that sowed the seeds of the American Revolution.

This design is one of those satirical illustrations by a newspaper, and a great reminder of our heritage as renegades for liberty. This shirt is available in two styles on ultra comfortable vintage cotton tees. These soft vintage feel t-shirts come pre-washed and pre-shrunk, making sure that your size and color will hold up with time. An extraordinary 40 singles thread count means the quality of these timeless shirts is very high and will quickly become one of your go-to tees in your closet.
