Spring is in the air and summer time is right around the corner. And so
begins Family Reunion
most family reunions being held between May and September when the
climate is warm and agreeable for outdoor activities. If you’re having
a Family Reunion during this time of year the chances are good you are
going to have custom printed t shirts at the reunion.
After all, custom printed family reunion t-shirts serve
as excellent reminders of the event long after the reunion has passed
and let’s not forget to mention they are an excellent way to identify
your party with a quick glance, especially when held in an amusement
park or other facility with large crowds of people who are not
necessarily part of the family reunion.
Here at Crazy Native
T-Shirts Designs, we have been helping family reunions with their family
reunion t-shirts and designs for over 20 years and we’d like to share
some basic information to make ordering your next family reunion t
shirts a snap.
The First thing you might
want to consider is What Kind of Shirt & What Color Shirt will best
suit your Family
An important thing to
consider when ordering your custom printed tee shirts is that if you are
planning outdoor activities, Darker Colored T-Shirts attract the heat.
In general it’s a good idea to stay with lighter colored shirts and
lightweight fabrics in the hotter months of the year.
Another Item you may wish to pay particular attention to
is the Design or Artwork for your Family Reunion T-Shirts. What
would you like Printed on your shirts? How Many Colors is Your
Design? Is Your Design a Photograph? If you’re planning on using a
family photo - Use a Good Quality Photo if possible. Using photos of
the family founders or family members passed is a great idea! A few
important things to consider when using photos is that the Finished
Screen Printed T-Shirt will only look as good as the original photo,
unless photo retouching is done beforehand. The second thing to
consider when using photos for your family reunion shirts is that a
close up image of 1 or 2 people is better than an image of dozens of
people from a past family reunion. Size does matter.
How Many T-Shirts will you need?
Bear in mind that this question is for the most part, the determining
factor in what your t-shirt pricing will be.
If Possible Order a Few Extra Shirts
for exchanging sizes between attendees or for stragglers whom “didn’t
realize the shirts we’re going to look so good.”
And Quite Possibly the Most Important Thing to Remember
is, Don't Wait Until the Last
Minute to Order Your Family Reunion
and Summer are the busiest seasons for many screen print shops, so If
possible, always try to allow 2 - 3 weeks for production and delivery of
custom printed t-shirts and promotional products. Waiting until the
last minute to limits the ability to produce quality artwork or fix any
issues that may pop up, such as shipping delays or product
availability. Most t-shirt printers offer rush service but in the end
customers who wait until the last minute to place their orders generally
incur extra stress and end up paying more. Not Fun Happy Times To Be
