Sarcasm on a Higher Level.

Every day, you shriek in horror at the sight of people in tacky, horribly-designed t-shirts. People desperate to make a statement with their apparel, but unable to find a casual garment capable of representing their rapier wit, their sense of irony, their sarcasm and sass. So, in the interest of advancing humankind, we stepped in to fill the void.

You wear t-shirts. But, do you wear Killer T-shirts? Get ahead of the Joneses. As Melania says—"Be best!" [That was sarcasm.] And now, with LemonMachine, you can... er, be best. Or, at least just a little bit better. And isn't that what it's all about? You tell me—I'm asking. Is that what it's all about? Is it?

LemonMachine tees are printed on the highest quality base t-shirts. We use only the premium stuff. The most comfortable, top quality ring-spun cotton fabrics: the Bella+Canvas 3001 or Anvil 980 for our Unisex tees, for example. None of that cheap, flimsy stuff. That's all part of being best and whatnot.

Lemon Machine is a black-owned business. It’s name is a reference to a favorite episode of The Honeymooners. All designs are custom created for Lemon Machine.

    Quabity Something, Customer Service

    I didn't realize when I accepted this position that I would be required to severely modify my napping schedule. But, that's okay—the satisfaction I get from the feedback from happy customers... well, it almost makes up for that supreme sacrifice.
