Family is everything, and if you belong to a big clan that’s planning to meet up to celebrate your special bond, you should have a great T-shirt to commemorate the occasion.
If you don’t consider yourself creative and don’t know how to go about translating your family’s awesomeness into a T-shirt design, no problem. Placeit’s got a foolproof T-shirt design maker that’s filled with family reunion T-shirt design ideas to help you create your own T-shirt design online easy peasy.
How to Create Your Own T-Shirt Design Online
1. Navigate to Placeit’s T-Shirt Design Maker Page
2. Select a Family T-Shirt Design You Like
Find family reunion T-shirt design ideas by checking out the wide variety of T-shirt designs available at Placeit.
When you find a design you like, click on it and the T-shirt design maker will open up. Don’t worry if a design you like isn’t specifically related to family reunions—I’ll show you how to customise any template to create your own T-shirt design. For this example, I’m using, of all things, a T-shirt design template created for basketball fans.
3. Start With the Controls on the Right
Starting on the right of the T-shirt design maker, add your text and change the colour of your font.
4. Move to the Controls on the Left
Using the controls on the left of the T-shirt design maker, change the background of your T-shirt design to match the proposed colour of your T-shirt, choose a graphic you like, and change its colour if you so desire. Alternatively, if your family has a special emblem they use, you can upload it in the graphic section.
For this specific template, I eliminated the original bars that were included in the design to keep things simple.
5. Download Your Family T-Shirt Design
And just like that, you can easily create your own T-shirt design online, which you can download and send off to your T-shirt printer.
