Bridal Party Custom T-Shirt Design Tips
As a bride or groom, your wedding day is a moment you will never forget. Why can't it be just as memorable for everyone else? More specifically, your bridal party. One way to engrave this special day into their minds is to gift them with a custom t-shirt. This custom shirt is something they will always be able to look at to remember the joy of celebrating your special day with you. Here are some tips to help you design a great shirt.
Choose The Right Canvas
T-shirts are often synonymous with lounge wear. This often causes many to think quality doesn't matter; however, this isn't the case when it comes to custom shirts for your bridal party. In order for the screen printing design to look its best and for the shirt to last, you need to start with the right canvas, which is a high-quality material.
Lean towards shirts that are 100% cotton instead of 50/50 poly-cotton blends. Full cotton shirts don't just hold ink longer, but they are also more versatile when it comes to the type of ink you can use on them.
Consider A Unisex Design
Make sure you are keeping your design neutral. For example, a large graphic of a wedding gown surrounded by a bed of flowers, positioned right in the middle of the front of the shirt might speak to the bride and the bridesmaids. However, the chances that the groomsmen will be just as excited about wearing the shirt is much lower.
You can keep everyone happy by only including graphics that are going to be unisex friendly. Two rings being joined together or simply avoiding graphics and just choosing unique font are ways you can achieve this.
Make It Personal
If you really want to make the t-shirts more memorable and special to your bridal party, personalize them. For example, instead of just including generic terms like bridal party, you can also include special details about the day. The date of the ceremony or your wedding day theme are just a couple of additions you can include on the shirt.
Since all the shirts will be designed the same, you can add a personal touch by having each shirt monogrammed with the initials of the person it will be given to. This simple gesture will speak volumes when it comes to showing your friends and family just how much you appreciate their participation.
The more effort you put into designing the perfect shirt for your bridal party, the more memorable it will be.
