With the rapid, fervent acceptance of our city's newest professional sports franchise, the USL's FC Cincinnati, Cincinnati residents have been wearing (and waving) a lot of royal blue and orange ("blurange", if you will) this summer.

One of the most recognizable merchandise items originated with our friends at Alchmst.  Before the season even began, Michael Stump wanted to do his part to rally the troops under our beloved City of Cincinnati flag, so he booted up a kickstarter campaign that was quickly funded and fulfilled.

After a reorder and continued demand, we have partnered with Alchmst to carry the torch from this point forward to proudly stock and sell these locally made flags!  Thanks to The National Flag Co for helping all of us show our civic pride!



QCStees.com is now 513shirts.com

Posted by Queen City Sportswear, LLC on 09 May, 2016 0 comments

Queen City Sportswear, LLC was born in February 2013.  Initially, we established our business as a solution to the complicated process of ordering custom shirts, but it wasn't long before the business evolved.  Simply put, we had too many ideas for shirts that we wanted to wear and decided to offer them for sale in our own online store.

In the spring of 2013, QCStees.com was established as our ecommerce site.  While we've had great success with this concept, we've realized that the original URL is somewhat complicated.  In our minds, "QCS" has always been short for "Queen City Sportswear", but based upon search engine data, we've come to find that most had no idea what it meant.  We needed something easier to remember...

We've owned 513shirts.com for many months, deciding what to do with it.  It was originally purchased because of our original (now retired) "513" design, so in honor of the shirt that put us on the map, we are now 513shirts.com!

Same local business, same great customer service, just a new web address.

(almost) Spring sale!

Posted by Queen City Sportswear, LLC on 26 February, 2016 0 comments


With our recent move from a retail location to a warehouse, we've decided to do some early spring cleaning...we've put some of our most popular designs on sale to make room for some new designs that we're working on!


Don't wait - some of these styles are in extremely short supply and will not be restocked when sold out - this will be your last opportunity to gear up!  Check out our ON SALE collection for details!


(Sale includes styles from our 513 Cincinnati, 216 Cleveland, 313 Detroit, 317 Indianapolis, 412 Pittsburgh, and 859 Kentucky collections!)


Additionally, for a limited time, take an extra 10% off when you used code SPRING at checkout!



Our retail store is closing!

Posted by Queen City Sportswear, LLC on 14 January, 2016 0 comments


At the end of January 2016, we will be moving out of our Longworth Hall office/retail location and moving our business into a warehouse, and thus, devoting all of our energy on being an "online business" only.


What this means to you, our amazing customers:

  • After January 28, we will no longer have Friday store hours nor the ability to pick up orders placed online.
  • As usual, QCStees.com will be "open" 24/7/365 to take your orders - we promise to continue to offer quick shipping and amazing customer service!
  • We are NOT, in any way, going out of business - we are simply preparing for our long term future so that we can provide more (and better) designs without the overhead associated with a part time retail location
  • We are currently working with a number of retail partners that are interested in stocking our designs in their stores!  We will let you know when & where, as soon as these details are finalized

We do have plans to open a full time retail location in the future, but we've got a lot of work to do in the meantime.  

Thanks to everyone that has helped us build QCStees.com into what it has become and will be in the future!

Winter Clearance!

Posted by Bold Apps on 12 January, 2016 0 comments



As we've alluded to on twitter, at the end of January, we'll be moving out of our Longworth Hall office/storefront to a warehouse, and at least temporarily, a strictly online business model.


With this in mind, we want to alleviate our move by selling as much of our inventory as possible before we have to box things up!  Until the end of January, use code THINKWARM at checkout for 30% off all orders!  Additionally, you'll receive free shipping on all orders over $65.


Please let us know if you have any questions.  As usual, our store will be open on Fridays and we'll offer this same discount in-store.



Christmas shipping cutoff!

Posted by Bold Apps on 15 December, 2015 0 comments


Monday, December 21 is the last day to make purchases to guarantee Christmas delivery.  We will do our best to expedite any order placed afterwards, but cannot make any promises.

Also, remember that all orders over $30 receive free shipping (limited time offer).

If you're on the fence or do not know a size, consider giving the gift of a QCStees.com gift card!
