Transit Tees produces signature products reflecting iconic and nostalgic Chicago symbols, landmarks, novelties and more. Chicago's Transit Tees crafts quite a range of items from tees to coffee mugs to patches to button pins to backpacks to notebooks to prints and more. Overall, I have to say that I am pretty amazed by the number of products that Transit Tees offers as well as the company's ability to reflect so many unique aspects of Chicago. All Transit Tees products are designed locally and a good number are produced or printed locally.

Adding a Little Chicago Flare to Your Outfit:

I am always looking for a little flare to add to my outfits. What began as a search for a few back-to-school items ended up in discovering some cute buttons that I could add to my own outfits or bags. Transit Tees' adorable Chicago Round Pinback Buttons represent so much of the flavor of Chicago. Currently, there are 30 designs including The Chicago Theatre, Chicago Flag, Andersonville Water Tower, City Seal, Dala Horse, Sue's Skull, Chicago Style Hot Dog, Deep Dish Pizza, Dibs Chair and more. I told you -- Transit Tees really captures the flavor of Chicago in such an adorable way!

Chicago Round Magnets Add a Little Chicago to Your Home, Locker or Even Office:

The Chicago Round Pinback Buttons are both designed and produced in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood. I also tried out some of the Chicago Round Magnets which are also designed and produced in Wicker Park. The Chicago Round Magnets feature the same festive collection of Chicago themes as the buttons. For these, I chose the Andersonville Water Tower, Sue's Head, Chicago Style Hot Dog and The Chicago Theatre. Can you get a better Chicago mix?

Transit Tees Chicago Round Magnets add a little unique flare to lockers, refrigerators, office cabinets or any metal surface. My selection of magnets are so cute, I can't tell which I like best! Andersonville is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Chicago, so The Andersonville Water Tower makes me smile. The Chicago Theatre is so iconic making this magnet a great souvenir. When visiting Chicago, you can't miss Sue the T-Rex at Field Museum. Plus, who doesn't love a Chicago style hot dog? What a great collection! Both the magnets and pins are at great price points, so why not pick a few?

I love that they not only provide a way to show Chicago pride but also are made locally in Chicago. Transit Tees offers fabulous options for sharing your love of the flavor of Chicago and the perfect souvenirs to take a piece of the heart of Chicago home!
