T-shirts are back! With beautiful summer weather on its way, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to start planning family events! The months of June and July are perfect for family reunions, cousin camps, family fundraisers, family picnics, and of course, Independence Day.
Why not make custom t-shirts for your upcoming 4th of July event? Not only is it fun to match, but everyone will have something to take home at the end of the day. We’ve done this at 2 family reunions and the photos were SO much fun!
You can design your shirt as an image in canva.com or photoshop or another software and upload it to the tee-shirt place, or you can often design something right in their store. There are several places to order custom t-shirts. Here are just a few:
Custom Ink Tees
Custom Ink, perhaps the most well-known of t-shirt outlets, allows you to design your own t-shirt in their design lab. There are tons of different styles to choose from, with their most basic men’s/unisex t-shirt running for about $12.57 each when you have approximately 10 people ordering them.
This company offers free shipping and typically delivers to your doorstep within two weeks! You can also get your order delivered to your door in three days with a fee.
