Yinzylvania is a family owned and operated apparel retailer and brand specializing in designs that celebrate the people, places, and traditions of Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania.

Yinzylvania family

Yinzylvania was started out of love and nostalgia of growing up in Western Pennsylvania during the 70s, 80s and 90s. It's a love that I share daily with my four children. They are well versed in Pittsburgh sports history, they understand why Sheetz is better than Wawa, and know the difference between a sprinkle and a jimmy.  We listen to polka music every Sunday morning (just like I did as a kid on WNCC-AM radio) and "Pittsburgh Salads" are in regular rotation at our family meals. They've experienced Potato Patch fries at Kennywood, ice cream from Penn State's Creamery and of course Primanti Brother's sandwiches.

Me and my yinzer brothers. Circa 1978.

All of the designs at Yinzylvania are original and we print only on high quality, buttery soft tees and apparel. So whether you grew up in Altoona, Pittsburgh, Punxsutawney or someplace in between or your shopping for someone who did I hope you enjoy our designs and gear. If you buy one of our products take a picture and share it with us at @Yinzylvania on Instagram or @Yinzylvania on Facebook. We'd love to see yinz. 

Thanks n'at.

About Our Designs

Yinzylvania features original artistic expressions inspired by our passion for Western Pennsylvania people, places, and culture. We do not produce official brand/team/organization/player merchandise (unless noted). Official licensed merchandise consisting of brand logos and team marks that lack the editorial and artistic expression of fans is abundant and can be found at the official stores of your organization of choice. 

Some of our designs include recreations and inspiration of local brands and businesses from the past. Each design is researched to insure there are no active trademarks or copyrights from the USPTO. As a small business with western PA roots we strive to respect, honor, and do right by the memories and people associated with our designs. If you are associated with one of these brands and would like to connect with us, please reach out to us at info@yinzylvania.com
