The Fine Print: Let's talk about tees!

Top O' the Mornin to You! St. Patty's Shirts

As February comes to a close the season of spring will soon be upon us. The official first day of spring for 2013 will be on March 20, but before we get to this year's vernal equinox we have one more holiday to celebrate. It's our favorite green holiday, St. Patricks day! There is much speculation on the true history of the famous Irish cleric. He left behind only a few letters after his death on March 17 460 A.D. Irish legends have persisted such as St. Patrick banishing all the snakes from Ireland and his walking stick growing in to an ash tree upon thrusting it into the Earth. Remembrance of the life and work of St. Patrick has grown into a festive holiday in the United States, and now March 17 is a holiday where everyone can celebrate in jovial Irish fashion! We have some custom T-shirts that will put a smile on your face and have you looking great in glorious green.


Of course St. Patrick's day wouldn't be complete without bagpipes, beer and corned beef so create a shirt that shows off your love for any of these Irish favorites. Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's day, so grab some friends, pour a cold one and get out and have some fun! And since you will be appropriately dressed in green with these custom St. Patrick's day shirts be sure to pinch anyone who has failed to wear the festive color!


Have fun and be safe! May the luck of the Irish be with you!

Family Reunion Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 of our family reunion blog. Last time we talked about picking the right place to hold the reunion as well as creating a dynamic theme. We have a few more tips about the importance of planning and how to create some great . The hardest part of the family reunion is the planning stage. Once the whole family is in one place it is easy for the good times to roll. If there is sufficient preparation the reunion will foster family interactions that will naturally unfold into harmonious bliss. If the reunion is ill conceived and unfocused there is the possibility of discontentedness and bickering. Of course it depends on what your family is like, but if the reunion is focused from one event to the next each family member will feel encourage to participate and stick to a schedule. Try creating a custom T-shirt with the schedule of main events on the back so everyone will be on time for each gathering. It is also a great way to look back and remember every fun part of the reunion.


Of course all this planning must come from a very special and dedicated person. If you have taken it upon yourself to be this extraordinary coordinator, we think you deserve to have a special shirt just for you that will signify all your awesome party planning prowess!


Adding names and numbers to the back is a great way to personalize each shirt and make everyone stand out. This can be especially helpful if you have a large family or a lot of little ones that are always running around. If your family has funny nicknames for each other its a great idea to put them on the shirt to encourage family members to strike up a conversation about the nickname's origin.

Preparation goes a long way in creating any successful event, so start planning early. And if you are feeling overwhelmed why not take a break from the hotel booking and event scheduling and have fun creating a custom family reunion shirt! Coordinating can be hard work but just remember that all the planning will pay off when you see the happiness and smiles at the reunion. We truly hope you enjoy creating a memorable custom T-shirt and can't wait to see all the great family reunion T-shirt photos in our Photo Contest!
