In the 1980s, the popularity of slogan t-shirts exploded. The rise of graphic design and screen printing made it easier and cheaper to produce t-shirts in large quantities, and designers began creating shirts with witty and irreverent slogans.
One of the most iconic examples of a slogan t-shirt from the 1980s was the "Frankie Say Relax" shirt, which was worn by fans of the band Frankie Goes to Hollywood. The shirt featured the words "Frankie Says Relax" in bold letters, with the words "Don't Do It" written in smaller letters underneath. And who can forget the legendary "Choose Life" made famous by George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley’s Wham!
