Family Reunion Shirts
For my family, reunions are unheard of. I am now a 30 year old woman with 2 kids, and can’t remember one single family reunion in all my life. I was really thinking about this and what can I do to change it. Most of my family, I haven’t seen in 10-15 years. Well, I thought the first thing I needed to do was plan one, pick a place and time. When I was out to lunch with one of my friends, she asked, “what about getting custom t-shirts printed for the reunion?” I had never thought about that before, but it sounded like a good idea, and would give everyone something to remember the experience.
Luckily, my friend Terri knew of a website that allows you to design custom t-shirts for yourself called LoveThoseShirts.com. I decided to check it out and was very impressed. They had many different shirts to choose from and in all sorts of colors. Then to my surprise, they also had many different cliparts and fonts to choose from to design my custom t-shirts. Ordering custom made t-shirts on this site was fun and easy for me, and the prices were not bad at all.
When reunion day came, I was so excited that mostly everyone showed up. Of coarse there are those that said they weren’t coming because uncle so & so will be there. You know how families can be. Well, when I opened the box the shirts came in, and started handing out the custom t-shirts, printed just for our family, everybody loved them. All of a sudden, they weren’t acting like, can we just get this over with so I can go home. We all loosened up and ended up having a very memorable day. I think next year, more will show up, and they will be looking forward to getting together. I am so glad that for the first time ever, we as a family are getting to know each other and spending time together, even if it is once a year for most of them.
Thanks to LoveThoseShirts.com for doing a fantastic job. They also print more than just t-shirts; perhaps next year I will also order caps or sun visors to match the shirts. Family is very important to me, and I am so glad I went out on a limb to bring us closer. If your family is like mine used to be, maybe you can be the one to start a new family tradition. The best for me is watching the kids get to know their family. The custom t-shirts were a hit, and I defiantly will be ordering again in the future.
