Why family reunion t-shirts?
Some believe it sounds awkward for one large family to wear the same thing but think of it like a team uniform. A family can be considered as one big team as everyone helps each other out. Another positive aspect to using them is that the t-shirts can help you set a theme for the family reunion.
You can have a family tree or your family's name printed on the family reunion t-shirts. This will help you honor your family's heritage. Another great reason for family members to wear themed t-shirts is that when holding the event in a large venue with many people, it is easier for you to keep your eyes on the children.
T-shirts can serve as souvenirs
When thinking of ideas for family reunions, people wonder what a good souvenir idea is, and t-shirts are definitely one of the better options.
Family reunion t-shirts also make great keepsakes as physical mementos from the last get together. Taking family photos is always fun and there is nothing that makes a better picture than family members posing for photos with their matching t-shirts on.
Designing your family reunion t-shirt
There are a number of things that I have found to be essential to consider when designing family reunion t-shirts. The most important thing is that they should be something that everyone in the family can wear and cherish. It is important to design t-shirts that are unique to your family. This means that they should be fun and remind family members of the good times they have had in the past. You can print funny pictures and slogans on the t-shirts.
Remember that everyone in your family will be wearing the t-shirts and they should therefore have something that is clever and ideal for the whole family. Some of the prints I have seen on such t-shirts include a tree with names on them and pictures of the oldest and youngest people in a family superimposed on each other. Another thing to consider when getting family reunion t-shirts is the kind of t-shirts to purchase.
You should consult with a reputable printer who offers quality t-shirts. The t-shirt printing service provider can also guide you into choosing the right material for the pictures and words that you want to print on the t-shirts.
The other thing to consider is the colors you will use on the shirts. The more colors the shirts have, the more expensive they will be. It is advisable to use less than three colors for your t-shirt designs. Consider that each color means a new screen and this will be added into the cost. If you have not been able to choose the right design, you can seek the help of screen printers who provide their clients with free artwork.
You can also ask one of the creative people in your family to create a design for the shirts. After the design is ready, you can use thermal transfer paper to iron the design onto the shirts. You should then send the shirts and invitation cards to the members of your family.
