I got my wife to add "got maps?" to her company's t-shirt offerings. Available in lots and lots of colors and size.

got maps? shirt

If anybody has any other phrases they'd like to see, reply here. Maybe: got projection?

It is comic sans for the purposes of the interactive shirt builder widget, as we needed one that was "web standard" by default. But, yeah, the shirt font is basically the exact same.

On one hand, it's a font that doesn't take itself too seriously. On the other hand...

Well, Don't take my comments personally.. :D

I would suggest going with a more authentic font for your "Got ____?" series of T-Shirts.

you might be surprised how much difference the proper font can make!

(Approx $20 USD) http://www.fontica.com/font/got_milk_

If you do not want to shell out the cash for a font,
you could try something like Rockwell Condensed?

It's kinda plain...but I'd love a map t-shirt! I used to have a raincoat and the inside liner was a map.

Just a thought,

I saw a sticker one time that made me laugh, it read, NAD83: you're not in Kansas anymore. YOu could try something similar.

not too be a downer, but personally i'm a little weary of the "got...?" thing. however, if you do make these up bear in mind that everyone out there who has been bombarded with a zillion different clones of the original "got milk?" campaign are familiar with the font, so if you don't match the type it will look wrong.
