Here’s some inspiration for different birthday t-shirt design ideas that you can print using custom screen printed transfers and a heat press.


T-Shirts for Kids’ Birthday Parties

The first idea we’re showing here is not only a great party favor for a kids party, but also a great craft activity idea for kids to do at the party.

A simple white t-shirt with a black screen printed transfer design will allow the kids to color in the design and make their own shirt. Use fabric markers to make it permanent, or washable markers and they can color over and over again.

Another idea is to make shirts for kids who are attending a birthday party “offsite” at a location. If all of the kids are wearing the same shirt, it is much easier to spot them. Use bright colored shirts, or unique colored shirts, like this raglan shirt with maroon sleeves.

Personalized T-Shirts for Birthdays

Personalizing shirts is just as easy as printing the birthday shirts themselves.

Add a name onto the birthday girl or birthday boy shirts to add that extra special touch. This is easy using screen printed Express Name transfers.
