Reunited and it feels so good! It’s been years of phone calls, emails, Skype, birthday cards, and Facebook updates. You love your family dearly, but keeping up with everyone can be quite the task. But finally, at long last, the stars have aligned and a family reunion is in the works! Since it’s sure to be special event, and photos will be taken (LOTS of them), everyone will surely want to look their best. Since coordinating colors and outfits can be a challenging task, why not show off your family pride with perfectly designed custom tees. From your grandma to your Aunt Sallie and even your second cousin Jim, everyone will love them.

Great idea, right…but where to start? Follow these easy steps and you’ll be well on your way to creating the perfect tee for your family reunion.

Choosing the tee
Getting everyone in the family to agree on a color and brand of shirt can certainly be a difficult task. Rather than having every member choose on their own, pre-select 1-3 shirt options for the family to vote one (same applies to hoodies, tanks, or any other product of your choosing). Just remember sure to select an option that is offered in a wide range of sizes, including youth and plus sizes  (the Gildan Ultra Cotton T-shirt, the Hanes 50/50, and the Next Level Jersey tee are three great option), and a color that is gender neutral.

Selecting a theme
Now that your family has selected a shirt, the fun beings. Creating a design can initially be daunting with so many ideas and options, but picking a theme will help hone in your creativity. Think about the location of your reunion – is it on a cruiseDisneyland, or perhaps a more historical destination?  Wherever the location, we offer hundreds of fonts and clip art to bring the design to life. Take it from the Smith family. They chose a pirate adventure theme, perfectly fitting for a reunion on Kelley’s Island.

Getting Creative
Does your family have a special tradition, an inside joke, or a well-known story? Think about the things that make your family unique, reminisce about past events, and consider current trends. The Chu family added a clever spin to their reunion tees, taking the Nike slogan of “Just Do It” and subbing in their family name for a fun custom tee that read: “Just Chu It.”

Collecting sizes and payment
Since tracking down every family member to obtain their sizing info and payment can be a time consuming task, we’ve made things easier with the help of a group order form. Now each member can select their size and pay for their portion. After you’ve collected all of the info and dues, you can quickly and easily complete your order. If you have any questions or need help, please give us a call at 855-374-4687. We’re here 7 days a week.

Snapping the perfect pic
Hooray, you made it! You placed your order, anxiously awaited for its arrival, and now the big day is here. As you gather with family and friends, all of whom compliment you on the wonderful job you did on the t-shirts, start scouting out a location for your family photo. Make sure the lighting is just right (find an optimally shaded spot if it’s super sunny out), ensure everyone fits in the photo frame while maintaining the visibility of your shirts, check that everyone is smiling, and most importantly – act natural. So let out that inner family goofiness and snap a perfect pic. And, don’t forget to submit it into our Ink of the Week photo contest for a chance to win $100 off your next order!

The weather is getting warmer, so it’s time to have some outdoor fun. What better way to get outside and active than with a fun run! Each one has a different theme to appeal to seasoned athletes and amateurs alike. We have the top 5 types of fun runs for you to try this summer and some inspiration to get you started!

1. Mud & Obstacle Races

Mud Run
It seems like everyone is taking part in a mud race! From Tough Mudder to Mudderella, runners everywhere are playing in the dirt. Not only do they get a little dirty, participants take on obstacles like 10-foot walls and extreme monkey bars.

2. Color Runs

Color Run
Runners start off wearing white and are doused in colorful powder during the race making for some pretty colorful t-shirts at the finish line! Some runs even add a little extra something. At
The Color Run Shine Tour participants also get to run through clouds of glitter – It’s no wonder that it’s know as the “Happiest 5K on the Planet.”

3. Relay Races

In a Ragnar relay race, teammates take turns running legs of varying degrees of length and difficulty. When not running, participants drive ahead to cheer on the current runner or rest up for their next leg of the race.

4. Zombie Runs

Zombie Race
Run from virus-spreading zombies, scale walls and other obstacles, and brave bloody waters to conquer the course and survive the zombie apocalypse. If you make it out alive, many runs, like
The Zombie Run, offer a post-race recovery party in the safe zone.

5. Electric or Glow Races

Electric Run
Electric and glow races light up the night with blacklights and neon inflatables galore. Participants, like this group at the Electric Run, often add to the glow by wearing glow-in-the-dark paint and glowsticks – LED blinking tutus optional!
