5 Tips for Selling Family Reunion T-Shirts
Family reunion t-shirts are one of our biggest sellers in the summer, and can be your biggest seller, too!
Most family reunion t-shirt orders are for about 100 t-shirts in various sizes that can be handled with one transfer order. They are often 2 color since the bigger order allows a second color in the budget.
The key to success is letting a customer know you can do their order in time for the big event.
Distribute a Free Printable Sales Flyer
The sales flyer is non-branded so you can add your own contact information and print.
Create a Free Proof
Once your customer decides which design is right for their family reunion order, go to Easy View, our free online designer, to customize the art with their family name.
Have your customer choose an ink color and t-shirt color and create a custom proof in seconds. This proof can be printed out or emailed so your customer can use it to get orders from all family members.

Handling Multiple Shirt Sizes for Printing
A family reunion order may have t-shirt sizes ranging from toddler to 3XL. How do you handle all sizes?
Believe it or not, with just one transfer order.
If there are toddler shirts, we recommend using a gang sheet with a standard adult and a smaller size that will fit on the sheet.
The standard adult print will handle all t-shirt sizes from Youth Medium to Adult 3XL. The small print can be used for toddler and youth small sizes.
This way you can place just one transfer order to print all shirts.
To figure out the quantity, add up your youth medium and larger shirts. That will be the number of transfer sheets you order, which should easily also cover all your infant and youth small size t-shirts.

Upsell with Extra Prints
Since you will be needing more adult shirts than youth, our gang sheet set-up is going to leave you with a lot of extra small prints. These prints are free so use them to upsell.
You can use them on women’s tank tops, tote bags, shorts, mouse pads and golf shirts.
Add these items to your order form and upsell for additional profits.
Promote Fast Turnaround
Because the family member organizing the family reunion also has a “day job” and it is difficult to organize a large group of people, family reunion t-shirt orders often are last minute.
We recommend setting your last day to order t-shirts date, at least a week before the event if your customer will be picking up their order, or add a day or two if you will need to ship the order.
Wait one day after the “last day to order” because you can count on someone turning the order in late.
Our one-color orders from our family reunion art layouts ship the same day when you order by 11 am EST and two colors ship in just two days. So, you can order Monday, your order will ship by Wednesday, and they arrive to you by Friday.
Our Goof Proof transfers are the best transfer type for family reunion t-shirts and apply in just 4 seconds. You will be able to print that 100-piece t-shirt order in about an hour and have it ready for Friday evening pick-up.
This fast turnaround is what will help you win the sale!
