hen party printed tshirts ideas

Printed t shirts

So most of us won’t have a creative bone in our body and opt for a brought printed t-shirt with them cost around £8-10 depending on design and quantity. Also, bear in mind time scale, a lot of the cheaper ones have longer shipping times. It might be worth searching around and ordering sooner rather than later. Once everyone has started to pay for the hen party they are committed and safe to order a t-shirt for them. It might be an idea to check sizing and that they are happy with their nickname prior to ordering. There are lots of printed options out there, so narrow it down. Do you have a colour scheme or theme to work with? Will you want fitted or loose style tops?

Alternatively, you can buy hen party t-shirt transfers. This is a special paper that can be printed on and ironed onto a top. Personally, I have never had much luck with these. When I thought they would save me money I ended up buying two t-shirts after the transfer didn’t take correctly. There are many YouTube videos with help and advice to achieving amazing transfers, so it might just be me. It’s worth keeping in mind that there is room for error here that will be at your cost rather than at the suppliers if you opted to buy them.

Handmade t shirts

If you are a Kirsty Allsopp and can throw your hand at most art and crafts, then you might choose to hand craft your hen party t-shirts. You get full creative rein, not restricted by a template design or by what you can already find out there. You can create unique one off fully personalised t-shirts.

Not only can you customise the wording and design of the t-shirt but you can also go a step further and customise the body of the t-shirt. You can add fringing if it’s a festival theme or perhaps alters the sleeves to cute bows for a hen who want a subtle cute look. Add studs for an edgy look, or some felt flowers for a splash of colour. For more customisation ideas or to see how these can be done check out our Pinterest board.

There are many routes you could go down from sewing, sticking, printing, painting, drawing, embossing and embroidering. Fully do your research to ensure you know how you will do it, the tools you will need and the expense of it all. Often hand making them can end up costing more than being printed but it is more personalised.
