Here are some Tips for Bringing that Perfect Senior Class T-Shirt to Life

Congratulations on making it halfway to the end of your high school days! Now it’s time to celebrate the year and more importantly, make some awesome senior t-shirts or senior sweatshirts to show off your senior pride. Granted, it can be a bit daunting to get your entire class to agree on the same design, but we feel your pain, so we’re here to help!

Develop Your Concept/Theme

One of the first things to do is to get consensus on concept. It can be difficult coming up with a slogan or theme, so if you are the person running the committee, we recommend creating a social media page using Facebook, Google Plus, or Pinterest, where your committee & fellow students can play ideas off each other. Even an email chain can be a great place to start. Plus something we offer on our site, that we’ve heard is helpful, is our list of senior class slogans. They’re a mix of funny and popular sayings we’ve collected that could be a great addition to your shirts, or just to get the group talking.

Create a Winning Design

Next, you’ll need to make an awesome design. Finding an individual that is artistically-inclined is one way to go, or you can hold a design contest on your social media page to find the best one… If you’re in a time crunch – hey, we know there’s that thing called ‘graduation’ looming just around the corner – we have some great senior class design ideas to use as a starting point.

Pick the Right Product (and Collect Sizes)

Finally, there’s the matter of putting the actual order together. Don’t worry yourself with picking a product that works for everyone and getting sizes exactly right. You have enough on your plate for the rest of this semester, so we’ll make it simple. We recently found that providing an organized place to sign up simplified the process tremendously. Using our group sign-up tool, you can gather people’s sizes, set deadlines, provide pricing, and gather feedback. So if Bobby really wants a senior sweatshirt or Mary is looking to get her name on hers, the tool allows that information – actual notes from Bobby and Mary themselves – to get to the organizer seamlessly.

Now, all you have to work about is that final project / paper / exam. Oops, sorry, didn’t mean to remind you about that… But hey, you’re almost there! So finish strong, and best of luck!
