The T-shirt turns 100 this year. It continues not only to be a favorite clothing item for millions of people worldwide, but also a staple product for Del Sol stores and customers in 24 countries.
Since 1994, Del Sol has made famous the world’s first T-shirt that changes color with sunlight. The Del Sol Sunface shirt design (pictured in this post) is a little blast from the past and a classic from the late ‘90s.
Del Sol made its color-change debut with only four basic ink colors and 10 black and white designs that were all engineered in Del Sol’s Spectrachrome laboratories. These colors were only formulated for use on textiles. We now have hundreds of dye colors that we use in a variety of materials. Over the years, those same dye colors have been combined to make hundreds of color formulations for use in all of Del Sol’s unique product line up.
Del Sol has added thousands of T-shirt designs to its color-change repertoire over the past two decades, and the new Del Sol-Disney, Marvel and Disney|Pixar T-shirt designs shows just how much potential is still in store for Del Sol’s color-changing T-shirts.
Del Sol T-shirts are made from the finest, preshrunk fabrics that are heavy weight and double stitched for increased durability and ware. Most T-shirts on the market weigh only 2 to 4 ounces as opposed to Del Sol’s high-quality shirt styles that range from a heavy 6.0 to 12 ounces.
Del Sol T-shirts not only feature unique color-changing designs, but they’re also hip, stylish and refreshing designs. When adventure meets the sun, everyone wearing a Del Sol shirt is a magician and has their own private magic show. Del Sol shirts let customers’ imaginations run wild. Discovery is at the heart of Del Sol’s colorful creations.
