BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Four years in a row now, the owner of J Rag printing in Birmingham has watched the BCS National Championship game on site so that he's ready to fire up the presses when an Alabama team claimed the title.

For three of those years, it's been crimson and white T-shirts rolling hot off the presses, soon to be snatched up by Alabama fans eager to display their team pride.

Printing crews came into work at halftime last night when Alabama had a 28-0 lead. Employees worked through the night to get as many shirts out as possible. J Rag can print up to 800 T-shirts in an hour, and thousands of their National Championship shirts will hit the stores Tuesday.

One design, to be sold at Sam's Club later today, includes a script "A" over a crimson background with the now-15 championship years listed on the front of the shirt. Another style, a crimson, white and gray design on a white background, features the simple statement "Champions" along with the Jan. 7th date and the Alabama and BCS logos. That shirt will be available for sale in Wal-Mart.

The Alabama Crimson Tide took home their third BCS title in four years after crushing Notre Dame 42-14.
