Support Your Hero T-Shirts Help Save the Day.

A hero can be anyone who does something courageous and that we look up to. It can be a friend, family member, teacher or even a whole profession like firefighters and policemen. A hero doesn’t have to be someone who does something that we typically think of when we hear the word hero. It can be someone who saves a child from falling through the cracks of social systems that don’t work well. It can be a parent who works double and triple jobs to keep the family fed and sheltered. It can be a friend who gives everything she has to make sure others don’t want for anything. It can be the child who tries hard and doesn’t give up despite injury or sickness.

Heroes are everyday people who do things in an extraordinary way. They do more than is expected of them and more than most people in the same situation would do. Heroes are people we look up to and respect and aim to be like. They are people that we point out to our kids and others that it would in their best interest to be like. Heroes make life a little more worth living.

There are many ways to show your hero that you support them and are in awe of them. You can do it with a card, an award, a gift, a newspaper article about them or by vocalizing your pride in them at a public event. However, on a day to day basis, a steady, fun and encouraging way to support your hero is by wearing a T-shirt that says that he or she is your hero.

You can get a custom-made T-shirt made stating who your hero is and why. You can add pictures of the person; maybe even some action shots. What could be more heartwarming than to see your name and face on someone’s T-shirt as their hero? Often we don’t even know that we are someone’s hero, unless we have done some flashy act, like saving his or her life.  However, for people in professions where caring is an important part of their job, often they get burnt out and feel like they make no real difference in anyone’s life. By learning that they do make a difference and that they are a hero to someone can make a huge difference.

For anyone who feels that an entire profession is heroic, a T-shirt saying so is a great idea. If you feel that way, there are certainly other people who share the feeling. If you have hero T-shirts made up to sell as part of a fundraising campaign for the group, you get several bonuses. You can contribute the raised money to the group, you can rally their moral with the support T-shirts and you can make them aware that they are truly heroes, all of which are important things to anyone.

Get your Support your Hero T-shirt today and let your hero and everyone else know how proud you are of that person.

Support and Remember Loved Ones with a T-Shirt this Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a federal holiday that recognizes American men and women who have died in military service to their country. It’s observed on the last Monday in May. Memorial Day also marks the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. But the day was originally established to honor Union soldiers who died in the Civil War. It was later expanded to include those who died in any war or military action. People usually celebrate this holiday by visiting cemeteries, memorials and monuments. There’s a moment of silence around 3 p.m. each year to remember the fallen.

Memorial Day is also a popular time for picnics, parades and other get-togethers with loved ones. A good way to take part in the festivities is to create and buy your very own custom T-shirt. The process of designing and ordering a one-of-a-kind shirt isn’t difficult at all.

First you need to pick the type of shirt you want to wear. There’s literally hundreds of colors and styles to choose from. Short sleeve, long sleeve, collared polos, tank tops, spaghetti-strap tops, sweatshirts and more.

Then there’s the fabric. Do a little research, and you’ll find most shirts come in a 100 percent pre-shrunk cotton. Some are created from a cotton/polyester blend. There’s also combed cotton, ringspun cotton and jersey. Organic cotton is becoming hugely popular, and that comes in heavyweight or lightweight versions. Egyptian cotton is very nice, but costs a little more.

Sizing can get a little tricky because it varies from dealer to dealer. Typical sizes range from small to XXXL. Small is 28 inches in length, and 18 inches in width. XXXL is 32 inches in length and 28 inches in width.

Once you pick a color (and they have a bunch to choose from) it’s time to start designing your custom T-shirt. Since this is a shirt you plan to wear for Memorial Day, your best bet would be to choose a shirt in red, white, or blue.

Your next step is to add some text. You can come up with a word or phrase on your own, or use one provided below:

Liberty has a price
Freedom isn’t free
Lest we forget
Remember those who served
All gave some, some gave all
Land of the free, courtesy of the brave
Hooray for our heroes
Together we stand

Once you know what you want to say, you need to pick the most effective font, text size and color. Then you should place it on the shirt so that it’s visible and pleasing to look at.

Have some room left over? Why not add a picture appropriate to Memorial Day, like an American flag or a bald eagle? It’s easy to find these icons on the internet for free, or purchase them for a minimal cost.

Once you’ve pulled all these elements together, you’ll own a T-shirt no one else will be wearing at the next Memorial Day picnic or parade.
