Family Reunion T-shirts - How To Design, Order and Distribute

It's t-shirt ordering time. In this reminder we discuss why it's important to give yourself plenty of time to get your orders submitted way in advance and how to avoid having to make those last minute t-shirt size adjustments that can delay the whole distribution process.

Designing T-shirts

If you haven't completed the design, ordering and organizing of your family reunion t-shirts, now is the time to do so. Organizing t-shirts is no small task. First you want to design it. Then order one. Let the reunion planning committee see the finished product first. After they all have a good look at it and give feedback you'll have time to make the needed changes. Next start collecting orders and fees for the shirts. Finally submit the order. As you can see this takes time.

T-shirt Discounts

At this time T-shirt designers offer discounts to increase off-season sales. In addition discounts are added to bulk orders. The savings can be phenomenal. Don't be fooled by low budget t-shirt offers. Frankly some of these shirts smell of low budget ink. Others are then, hard and poorly sewn together. Your best option? Go with the t-shirt designers who are highly rated by reunion planners like us.

Organizing and Distributing T-shirts

An ideal tool to get it all done is the Family Reunion T-shirt Roster. It helps you keep up with fees, payments and distribution. The Roster is part of the web app package our reunion event planners use when organizing their shirts. It's also part of the family reunion planner spreadsheet found on the reunion planning web app interface.

Avoid Last Minute Adjustments

There's nothing worse then being told that the t-shirts sizes you ordered are too small or too big. The hard facts are people grow and shrink and get thinner or wider over time. Encouraging younger folk to order a shirt one size larger or smaller may seem to be the solution. But that depends on the changes taking place in each individuals metabolism. The real solution? Once you've completed your t-shirt design share it with all attendees using the share feature on the t-shirt designer tool bar.

Each household can order them personally and if the shirt does not fit they can order another one as needed without having to contact you. You can even set the price for your shirt and and sell it your self, adding the proceeds to the family reunion treasury.
