Empire QC is open in Downtown Davenport and they have you set for witty Quad Cities teeshirts.

Empire QC opened its doors on Saturday, April 30. They offer teeshirts with different local-inspired designs (so when I visited, it was 'Betterdorf', 'Quad Cities' in script, 'Ope', and more. Pics are down below).

While Empire QC doesn't currently offer screenprinting for some events, you'll be seeing their live screenprinting machine at different events in the QCA. An example of that is the upcoming Farmer's Market opening. At these events, you can pick out a shirt in a color you like, and there on the spot, they will screenprint their design onto it. I'm told that the plan is to create different designs for different events.

Also to that point, Empire QC plans to rotate out their witty local designs every so often so if you stop by their store and you can't find one you just love, you could check back later.

Empire QC is locally owned and is at 226 West 3rd St. in Downtown Davenport. Here are their hours:
