Trip T-Shirts

    Looking at taking my class on a residential and thought it might be fun to build in a printed t-shirt into the cost of the trip but would only want it to cost a few pounds. Has anyone had t-shirts printed? If so, how much did they cost and where did you get them from?

    Sorry if this is on the wrong board, I couldn't find one that fit the bill!

    I've not had T-shirts done, but hoodies. I've used SuperLogo and more recently HoodyWorld. Print quality and customer service are excellent with both; I found HoodyWorld to be slightly more cost effective for my needs.

    Don't think of it just as "fun", Siân.

    When you are travelling, it makes it much easier to pick out your charges if they are wearing identical t-shirts.

    Local supplier is usually best - you can go and talk with them, check samples and so on. Might be more likely to negotiate on price too.
    And a "uniform" is ever so helpful - not only for you spotting mislaid pupils, but for the mislaid ones to spot the remainder.

    I can see this as a benefit in some ways, but I would avoid names on hoodies. Personally I think it's a waste of money.

    Our D&T dept did some for us. Plain white Ts at £2 each and then they put the design onto them.

    Another guy I know made some a few years back. He cut out a stencil from thin aluminium plate and then used car spray paint on plain T shirts. They looked very professional and washing didn't fade the print.

    Or you can get them off the shelf

    I would definitely not put names on any item of clothing except perhaps sports shirts. Child protection and all that.

    We just went with coloured t-shirts (nothing printed as we'll reuse); it made it so much easier in the airport and going through arrivals in a different country.
