Creating custom t shirts is a fun project for your next family reunion or any occasion where you want to stand out from the crowd. Custom t shirts for the entire family will be thought of as a great souvenir gift and a reminder of the special time everyone spent together.
There are a few things to keep in mind when creating your custom t shirts for a family reunion. One is that a family crest or logo will not look the same on the smallest child or baby’s shirt as it will on triple XL Uncle Bob’s t shirt. Pick a logo or size the family crests so that it looks good at various sizes. This can be effortless if you choose a design that is simple, yet tells the story of your family, and then have it sized to a medium print and this way it will fit everyone the same.
Choose a bright color for your family reunion custom t shirts if you are going to be meeting in a large outdoor park or an amusement park, this way everyone will be able to find each other in the crowds by simply looking for the people wearing the same t shirts. Otherwise, choose plain white t shirts so they can be worn again without the rest of the family. It maybe difficult to be seen roaming around the grocery store in a bright green custom t shirt from a family reunion without the rest of the family. Either way, don’t make them too flashy or your family will not want to wear them.
Designing and making custom t shirts are two very different things. You can design a custom t shirt and have someone else make them for you; there are hundreds of print shops that specialize in custom t shirts and lettering, you can also find several hundred more on the Internet. However, if you want to make your own custom t shirts for your reunion, you will need either a screen printing machine or a computer program that allows you to make special laser or iron on decals. Another option many people go with for their custom t shirts is embroidery, which must be done with a computer and a special sewing machine. These are a little more in price, but are very nice and can be personalize with the persons name at little or not additional cost.
If you are having your custom t shirts made by a company, ask for a discount if you are purchasing over a hundred. Many custom t shirt companies already discount for volume depending on how many you need and the color and style. Style is anther factor you need to consider for your custom t shirts. Again, what works for Uncle Bob, doesn’t work for your teenage nieces so you have to consider various styles of t shirts when ordering the shirts themselves. If you are customizing them with personalized names, make sure you have the right size for the right person before you put down the decal or iron on transfer.
