Bachelorette Party T-shirt Idea
Take me out to the ball game, bring me custom apparel to wear, celebrate a friend’s bachelorette party, and let everyone know why you’re there!
This past weekend, I attended a bachelorette party for a long-time friend who’s getting married at the end of the month. The bachelorette party was in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with the theme of the night being the baseball game we were tailgating and attending. We thought it would be a great idea to make matching t-shirt as a surprise for the bride and to make us stand out.
I got to work customizing Easy Prints layout QWN-7 in the Easy View® online design tool; personalizing it for the ball game by changing the words, clip art, and adding a distress to everything but the words and baseball clip art. I changed the text for the front of the shirt to say “Holly’s Final Swing Before the Ring” with the year, location, and “Bachelorette Party.” I was able to make the main design for the screen printed transfers that would be heat applied to the front of the shirt 8″ wide, which looked great on the shirts and allowed extra room on the transfer sheet to add two of the main design and even “Team Bride.”
On the back of the shirt, I included everyone’s titles. The titles included “Bride,” Mom of the Bride,” “Mom of the Groom,” “Bridesmaid,” and “Team Bride” for anyone who did not fall into these categories. The numbers on the back of the shirt represented the year that we met the bride. For example: I met Holly in 2004, so the back of my shirt said “04.” The names and numbers for the back of the shirt were Express Names Impress purple words and Goof Proof® All Star 6″ purple numbers.
Since I like to keep my work space organized, I made a stack of transfers in the order that I needed them after cutting them from the sheet. The stack included the design for the front of the shirt and the names and numbers for the back.
To make adding transfers to both the front and the back of the shirts easier and faster, I threaded the shirt on the platen for easy shirt rotation.
All of the transfers that I used were Goof Proof® ink, so it took just 4 seconds to apply the front transfer, then an additional 4 seconds to heat apply the transfers on the back.
As soon as the transfers were applied, they were ready to wear to the bachelorette party!
