Wear Your Accomplishments on Your T-Shirt

“This car climbed Mt. Hood.” “I’ve been to Heaven and it’s in the Poconos.” These are some examples of bumper stickers you may see on cars and trucks and vans as you drive around town. People have always wanted, since they discovered written language, to share their accomplishments with each other. They write about them. They sing about them. They put stickers on their cars, they tattoo themselves and they also wear them. That’s right, people wear their accomplishments right on their clothes!

Literally anything you’ve done can be put on a shirt. Finished kindergarten? Put it on a tee. Made it through your 25th year teaching kindergarten? Put that on a shirt. Wear it with pride; it’s something that not even all other teachers could do.

About to graduate with your PhD in mathematics? If you don’t want to wear a tee that shows off your amazing brain, I bet your mom or dad will. “My honor student is smarter than your honor student” is the line of thinking, here.

Did you just run a marathon? Simply crossing the finish line is reason enough to wear a shirt telling everyone about it, in my opinion. Participating in and finishing a race like this is not just about running; it’s about all the training that you’ve done; the stretching, the blisters, the early foggy mornings when you’d rather be in bed or sipping a second cup of coffee… Running in a race like this tells the world that you’re physically fit; you’re dedicated and have great self-discipline. You may also inspire someone else to get in shape to run in the next 5K!

Taking a special trip that includes something like white water rafting, rappelling, or riding a burro down into the Grand Canyon are activities that, once accomplished, deserve to be proclaimed to the world. These are all fun, exciting activities, and the doing of them should be shared. Putting these experiences on your shirt will spread the word to everyone who cares to look.

What to share your prowess with the fishing rod? Just landed the fish of your dreams? Wear a tee that says something like “Kingfish…He didn’t get away!”

Maybe you and three of your pals have just played in a golf tournament and won! That’s something to definitely put on your t-shirt. While you may have to wear a collared shirt on the course, changing in to a golf tee that shares your superiority with the world in the locker room is completely acceptable.

Have a child who’s going to the state spelling bee? Not only do THEY deserve a cool tee telling the world how smart they are, but so do you! While they may need to wear their “Sunday Best” while competing up on the stage, YOU can certainly wear a shirt that supports their talent and skill.

No matter what your accomplishments are, they are something to be proud of. Whether they are physical or mental, you deserve the recognition of others for a job well done.

Graduation T-Shirts Help Commemorate the Big Accomplishment

After long years of hard work, you are finally graduating! Whether from high school, college, or trade school, your graduation is a giant accomplishment that you should be very proud of. Now is the time to celebrate a job well done and years with your friends and classmates, now coming to an end. Why not commemorate this special time with some custom t-shirts?

If you are in some organizational position, like class president or student council, or graduation committee, you could consider ordering t-shirts for your entire class. You could design a standard t-shirt with “Class of 2008,” your school name, and perhaps a picture of your mascot or something like that. The shirts could show your school colors, and perhaps some unifying facts about your class—pop culture from the year, class songs, or slogans. In the days leading up to graduation, the class would appreciate a t-shirt to wear together and to keep as a souvenir of their entire class. When will the class be more unified than on graduation day?

You don’t have to be class president to design and order class t-shirts, however. Why not design t-shirts for yourself individually, or for your group of friends, or for a club or team you belong to? If you’re making a t-shirt just for yourself, you could take the opportunity to celebrate your personal accomplishments—best hair, most likely to succeed, high grade point average, captain of a team—or highlight your favorite memories from school. Think of yourself as a walking version of your yearbook write-up. What is your favorite inspirational or funny quote? You could list your favorite songs and movies from the year, or your favorite classes and t-shirts, or your best friends.

If you want to get t-shirts made for a small group of people—like your high school choir, or your softball team, or just the kids you eat lunch with every day—you can get creative and individualize each t-shirt for the specific person. You can put their names on the front or back, and maybe a picture of them that captures their personality. If you already have nicknames for people, you could use those, or you could make new nicknames up. For small groups, you can think about inside jokes you and your friends have enjoyed over the years without having to worry about leaving anyone out. Commemorating jokes and memories on t-shirts will help people go back to the days of school much easier as the years go on and they move on to new parts of life.

No matter how large the group that you decide to make t-shirts for, you can have a lot of fun with the t-shirts after you’ve all received them. Graduation is a great time to let people know what they’ve meant to you, and to wish them well. You could have a t-shirt signing party, or just bring them to school in the final days before graduation for everyone to sign, like yearbooks. Then you will all have a meaningful and fun memento of the years you spent together in school.
