Gladditudes happy and funny T-shirts express the happy connections in your life and with those you love; for gender reveal, pregnancy announcement, dad-to-be shirts and big brother/big sister shirts.

In 2008 Gladditudes created the Skelly Baby® character, a funny pregnancy skeleton t-shirt design showing a rib cage and heart for Mama, and Skelly Baby on the belly. This idea was well received to say the least and grew to world-wide popularity, and has evolved to become a not-just-for-Halloween shirt, with many different versions such as St. Patrick’s Day, Valentines, Santa’s Helper, Pilgrim boy and girl, and Sugar Skull Skelly. Skelly Baby t-shirts are often used as gender reveal shirts as well as for celebrating specific holidays or seasons. Shirts are made to order by my fulfillment company ( and can be printed on any type of t-shirt. If you have a custom request, I can make a new product through this website, or you can contact the Gladditudes Etsy shop (which are hand made by Elisabeth, but subject to closures due to personal and work schedule).

Besides Skelly Baby shirts, the Etsy shop aslo features iron-on transfer designs, and instant downloadable svg files. If you see a design on that you would prefer as an iron-on transfer, please you can email Gladditudes through the contact page, or convo through Etsy.

I (Elisabeth) am a graphic designer and Illustrator. In my spare time I like to hike and practice yoga. I love handmade jewelry, reading and nature, and I am learning to play the mandolin.

I hope you enjoy my designs and t-shirts. Let me know if there is a design you need customized or would like to see on a different style or product.

Have a happy day!
