Custom Shirts

Recommended Posts

This is very late in the thread, but my sister had T-shirt favors for her wedding. They read something along the lines of "I went to ___ & ____'s wedding and all I got was this losey t-shirt." There was a stick figure picture of a bride and groom on it. Everyone LOVED these! In fact, we are coming up on her 3 year anniversary and I still see people wearing the t-shirt!

I totally agree with you that the boys shouldnt wear the t-shirts-I was thinking the same thing. But to go off topic a little, did any of you ladies see that pink personalized flask on Knot.comhuh.gif I so love that idea-but they only send to the US and I live in Canada!!!

OK, I totally missed this thread when it started. Glenda, dude, you are serious crackup! I love all your tshirt ideas.

 

So today I purchase some rhinestone "Bride" shirts from Personalized T-Shirts, Personalized T-Shirt, Customized T-Shirts, Customized T-Shirt - CustomizedWorld.com they are like this, only I got 2 tanks - one white & one baby blue. Click the image to open in full size.

 

I also got their customized panties to say "Rafael's Booty" on the back!! I think he'll like that :)

Hi All. Just wanted to put my 2 cents in here - I have a custom design t-shirt and apparel company. I give all DW brides super great rates. Pretty much you can name your price and we can definitely work something out. I do mostly bulk orders (12+), but have a heat transfer machine in-house, so I can definitely do single items as well. PM me or check out my site to get some ideas. Custom Discount Apparel, Custom Design and Screenprinting

Thx! Toni

I made my own shirts, I was also concerned about doing t-shirts, so I did golf shirts for the guys and tank tops for the woman. I paid about 7$ for each shirt (searched forever to find some at a decent price in nice color) and then used iron-on transfers. I should warn you though that iron on transfers don't look good on dark colored fabric, the back of the transfer shows through, so it kinda looks like a big piece of packing tape. It's not as obvious at all on a white shirt, but it's very obvious on a colored shirt. I was very disappointed. This would not be a big deal if you can cut right around your design but I coudln't do that (design was too complicated). I ended up ironing the transfers after taking off the backing, which melted the transfer more into the shirt and kinda got rid of the "tape" look, although it still wasn't the best and also the ink started to smear because you are not suppose to iron with the paper backing still on the transfer.

 

Not only was the transfer obvious, but also with darker material, the black writing didn't show as obvious so you need to have big bubble letters and a big obvious design, no intricate little things. So I had to play with my logo to do some changes and then re-print all my transfers all over again.

 

For the letters (i.e. bridesmaid, father of the bride etc) I ended up using dollarama iron on transfers because it looked nicer than having the writing with the "tape" look from the transfers I printed myself. The only disappointment there was that I didn't like the font of the dollarama letters as much as I liked the font I had used to make my own writing transfers.

 

all in all it turned out okay but was SUCH a hassle, in part because of the colored t-shirt thing, and in part because the 2nd time around I forgot to flip my image (i.e. make a miror image). So in all I printed all the images 3 times (and the transfers are like 15$ for 10 pages or something like that)

All my shirts were black and I got special iron on transfer paper for dark colors at Stapels or Office Depot and it worked out great. In fact I noticed that my mom had her shirt on last week - held up pretty good!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
