Your face is beautiful. Your face is fine. Your face, in its current state of peak attractiveness, is worth immortalising in a way that goes beyond the mere selfie.

These days, anyone can take a poorly lit self-photograph and stick it on their Facebook, but how many people have the style chutzpah to rock shirts emblazoned with their mug?

One Canadian company is making selfie fashion a thing. You can now have your face - or the face of anyone else you love/hate for that matter - printed onto a tee, tank or sweatshirt for a measly $94.

We've seen those photo-printing T-shirt stations in department stores, but the quality of the wares leaves a lot to be desired. We don't even care that there's an option to throw in a personalised stubby holder, magnet and tea towel on top.  

With Shelfies however, you can have your marvelous mug repeated over and over in a tessellating pattern.

They use a dye sublimation process of printing, which means you get a crystal clear, photo-realistic image from any picture you upload onto your computer.

Just send in your favourite shot and they'll take 20 to 25 days to render it onto a shirt.

The business idea comes courtesy of an Australian guy named Haydn, who first came to the company with the novel request. "We thought it was so fun, and unique," says the company.

The results are fantastic, if a little alarming.

Aren't a fan of your own face? That doesn't mean you have to miss out on the fun.

As luck would have it, there's a whole assortment of designs on offer, with a particular emphasis on foodstuffs. There's one for the pepperoni-loving carnivore in you, and one that gives new meaning to the phrase 'wear your heart on your sleeve'.

There are also more than a few sweatshirts reeking of the nineties and thenoughties -  nostalgia for everyone!
