An online T-shirt design company has released a mobile app allowing users to virtually "dress" monuments – including Philly's venerable Rocky statue on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway near the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

 

Design firm CustomInk has rolled out its "Monumental Tee" app for iPhone and Android devices as part of the company's summer-long celebration of the T-shirt's 100th birthday in America.

 

Participants can use the app through Sept. 30 to design unique T-shirts, then position them in front of one of six monuments and snap a photo, creating a personalized, shareable photo postcard.

 

Designs for Philadelphia's Rocky statue include customizable templates that read "I Love PA," "Greetings from Philly," a graphic of the iconic LOVE statue, "Yo Adrian!" "Eye of the Tiger" and a photo of a cheesesteak with the slogan "Whiz Wit."

Other monuments available for styling through the app include Atlas in New York City's Rockefeller Center, the Jimi Hendrix Commemorative Statue in Seattle, Santa Cruz's Surfing Monument, The Bronze Fonz in Milwaukee and the Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C.
