About Us

What is OffWorld Designs?

OffWorld Designs is an apparel company founded in 1990 by Raymond VanTilburg, our own veteran fantasy and sci-fi artist. Originally we sold only Ray’s designs, but today we hold licenses with some of the top artists in gaming, science fiction, comics, anime and more. We offer pre-printed designs, custom printing/embroidery and souvenirs for dozens of conventions per year, all across the country.

Our items are screen printed or embroidered in-house, so you are assured top quality goods that last for years. We provide top-quality, decorated apparel for conventions, schools, businesses, and other satisfied customers.

So, if you're looking for geek culture, nerd culture, fandom, and pop culture, videogame, TV, celebrity, movie, and entertainment t-shirts, you've come to the right place! Browse through our many categories--from Anime to Cthulhu to Zombies—we’ve got you covered! Our shirts cover the science fiction, horror and fantasy genres as well.
