Virtual St. Patrick’s Day – How can you celebrate?

As we get closer to St. Patrick’s day this year, we also get closer to one year since our country was put into lockdown from the global pandemic. A lot has happened in a year but the light is finally at the end of the tunnel. Vaccines are rolling out and we’re finally starting to open back up, but we still have a little ways to go!

I think it’s safe to say we’re all hoping this is the last year we have to celebrate St. Patrick’s day virtually, but we’re here to share our ideas on how to still have the most fun while celebrating safely from home!

1. Custom St. Patrick’s Shirt Zoom Call

You may not be able to get with all your friends at the bar this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t organize a rowdy Zoom call with your besties. Get everyone in the crew to make some custom St. Patrick’s Day tees, then hold a contest to see who has the best one! Give special prizes for the funniest, most creative, or best custom element!

Custom face uploads make for pretty hilarious custom elements!

2. Watch A Virtual St. Patrick’s Day Parade

With so many events still shut down, cities are getting creative with their St. Patrick’s day parades. Many are ditching the classic street displays and going fully virtual. Why not make some custom pajamas and snuggle up for Dublin, Ireland’s official virtual celebration? Get all the love from mother Ireland herself from the comfort of your own home for one more year.

Invite the whole family to watch the events with their own custom tees!

3. Learn some actual Irish history…maybe while day drinking?

The meaning of St. Patrick’s day can often get lost in all the noise of drinking and imitating bad Irish accents. Why not take this last year locked up to learn some actual Irish history….with a pint in hand of course. There are tons of fun and informative videos on Irish History on YouTube. Why not throw back a couple of cold ones while learning something?

Personalize these tees with your own Irish heritage.

4. Make Some Custom St. Patrick’s Day Drinking Gear

Customized Girl offers tons of fun products to customize and design. Why not spend some time designing your own custom shot glasses or custom ceramic stein? That way, next year when you can go back to the bars, you can tell them to just fill up your own stein! Not actually sure if that’s a thing, but it’s worth a shot…or stein.

Customize a stein with your clan’s name on it!

5. Participate In A Virtual St. Patrick’s Day Race

One more year of staying inside means one more year of virtual charity races for the St. Patrick’s day holiday. Check out some virtual races in your area here. But before you sign up, make sure to customize some St. Patrick’s day race tees. This is a good year to get back into practice before everyone sees you huffing in person next year.

Customize a tank for your St. Patrick’s day virtual race.

Custom Christmas Pajamas For The Whole Family

The holiday season is always a time to come together with friends and family to share our love for one another that maybe we haven’t been able to show the rest of the year. Whether you’re giving gifts or making the family a delicious dinner, togetherness is ultimately the feeling of the season.

2020 has been unlike anything we’ve lived through before and I think it’s safe to say that that feeling of togetherness is even more important than it’s ever been before. When it’s cold outside and there’s a global pandemic still keeping us apart, we can still feel the spirit of the holiday together at home.

What better way to spend that time at home together than by getting the whole family some matching sets of pajamas. You’ll have plenty of time to lay around in your super comfy family-themed PJ’s, so here are our selections for the top 6 family PJ designs.

Nothing left to do this year but snuggle up in your new custom jammies and put on your favorite holiday movies. Let’s make this holiday season the coziest one we’ve ever had!

Top 5 T-Shirt Design Tips

Designing t-shirts, while fun, can sometimes seem daunting. You want your shirts to look good but maybe you’re just not sure where to start. We’ve rounded up these 5 simple tips to help your t-shirt designs reach the pinnacle of quality! Here are our Top 5 T-Shirt Design Tips.

1. Keep It Simple

Good t-shirt design starts with a simple message. Big bold text that’s easy to read from a distance is key when designing shirts. Also, if you’re using art on your shirts make sure the art looks good. Like the text, your artwork should be readable from a distance and not confuse the person who’s looking at it. Finally, don’t use too much text in your design. You’re making a shirt, not writing a novel. Make your statement in as few words as possible.

2. Consider Your Colors

When you’re working on your designs, it’s important to consider the colors that you’re using. Your design should ‘POP’ off the shirt and catch the viewer’s attention. Using garment colors that are similar to the colors in your design (color on color) will lessen the effect of your print or make it impossible to see. Simple color theory, contrasting colors, complementary colors, etc., can make a huge difference in your design. Try experimenting with the colors in your design!

3. Scale & Size

What does scale & size mean? Basically, it means your design should be proportionately sized on the shirt and centered or balanced. Avoid stretching and distorting your image to make it fit. A properly sized, scaled, and centered design is your ticket to awesome tees.

4. Quality Uploads

The best part of on-demand direct to garment (DTG) printing is the ability to easily print beautiful, vibrant, full-color photos on to almost any kind of shirt. That is, as long as you’re using large high-quality images in your designs! Try to avoid low pixel count, blurry, or generally poor quality images when making your shirts. They’ll look equally low quality once they’re printed! We recommend at least a 1000×1000 pixel upload when using your own artwork, logo, or photograph.

5. Fabric Matters

When you’re choosing which shirt to get your print on, take some time to read the product information. 100% cotton produces the best prints, it’s the fabric that most inks are designed for. However, if you want something that’s a little more comfortable and you’re willing to sacrifice a little vibrance with your print, a tri-blend tee may be what you’re looking for. We use filters in our design center to simulate how your image will print, so if it looks faded when you’re designing, expect it to look faded when it arrives!

Custom Group Shirts For Everyone

Family Reunion? Charity event? Small business? There are so many reasons to create custom group shirts. You may think creating custom shirts for you group is way too complicated.  It doesn’t have to be! Our design center is full of fun and easy ways to make customizing a breeze.

Customized Girl’s one-of-a-kind design center allows you to save designs and revisit them when you are ready to adjust, complete, or purchase your custom items. This allows the customer to create a design but not order right away. After hitting our “Save” button located in the design center, you will then be asked to sign into your account. Once you sign in, you will be able to save your design. These designs can be retrieved under the “My Account” option.

Why would you choose Customized Girl over your local screen printer? To get right the point, Customized Girl does not offer screen printing. You might ask, why? This way we can give our customers more flexibility and more options at the same level of quality by using direct-to-garment digital printing. Unlike screen printers, your designs don’t have to be identical. Instead we offer custom group shirts at screen printers prices and in doing so we are creating some incredible deals for our customers.

Great deals that start at only 6 items.  This means you can add any six items, featuring any six designs, and you will see a discount in your cart. It doesn’t matter if your items match or if each one is completely different – we’ll still give you the discount. How can we offer this? No set up fees. You can easily personalize each shirt with each person’s name, number, or nickname AND on different styles.

It doesn’t end there. Add as many colors as you want. It won’t cost a dime more. This means you can add full-color art from our enormous library or upload full-color photographs. You can even add up to ten different text colors.  This isn’t possible for screen printers because each new color means a new screen which also translates to more money.

The discount increases at every integer. Buying 7 items gives you a bigger discount percentage than buying 6. 8 items is better than 7, and so on. This great deal continues all the way up to 48. What if you only need 5 items? Customized Girl’s no minimums policy is hard to beat. Our process is the same if you order 1 item or 100 items. We are more than happy to offer great prices for just one item.

We know that designing can be tricky. If  you need any assistance please do not hesitate to contact our amazing customer service team. They would be more than happy to help you with your design from beginning to end!

Let us know your favorite reason for designing custom group shirts and share your designs with us via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram @CustomizedGirl!
