The beginning of a new academic year is always the most exciting time. Undeniably, it can also be nerve-racking and intimidating. After all, adapting to a new routine is not always easy. You might look around the classroom and realise that there aren’t any familiar faces. You might find yourself trying to find your new place. But we are here to tell you that you are not alone.
Luckily, there are a few steps you can take to grow the spirit and create a unique sense of belonging and identity. For one, consider class t-shirt production as an icebreaker activity. From designing to printing, this endeavour renders plenty of opportunities for students in Singapore to introduce themselves, get to know each other better and get conversations going. Besides, class t-shirts boast plenty of unspoken appeals too.
On board yet?
Love the idea? Don’t be in a hurry just yet. You are eager to get your hands on the final output – we understand. But putting yourself under the pressure of time will only translate to undesirable errors and mistakes. Slow down and take a moment to look through these class t-shirt printing tips we have gathered. Trust us – they will come in real handy, especially if you are giving your first go at it.
1. Define your budget
Most students tend to skip past this step. But if you want to make your money stretch further, laying out the groundwork is imperative. This is especially important for students who are working on tight funds. Once you have determined your budget, the rest follows. So be sure to plan your budget before anything.
2. Don’t overlook these
There are a number of elements that we recommend to include in your class t-shirt. Of course, they are not set in stone and often, they can be a matter of opinion. But it is always good to sprinkle these elements and have them proudly displayed for all to see, isn’t it? These include:
- Class Number / Class Name: Think – Class of 2021/ 4E2 2021
- Individual’s Name & Number: Drawing inspirations from jerseys, these details are customarily printed at the back of the tee. There are numerous ways to introduce yourself, but nothing does it quite like a class t-shirt.
3. Think about the quantity
When it comes to t-shirt printing in Singapore, you need to familiarise yourself with this term: Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ). In short, it refers to the minimum order size that the printing company is willing to produce. The average class size in secondary education is 33 – so ideally, you would want to look for a vendor that offers low minimum quantity.
Best yet, there are even vendors like us, at Printee, that extends class t-shirt printing services with no minimum order – depending on the print type you have in mind.
4. Some other factors that may affect your cost
Besides quantity, there are several other factors that may affect your cost per piece. These include the number of colours, location of prints and type of apparels.
Here’s to a ‘tee-rific’ school year
That is all for now. We hope this guide has let you in on everything you need to break into the world of class t-shirts. Go on and let your creative juices flow! You are going to have a lot of fun.
