Let’s learn from these t-shirt fails

Look, we love t-shirts as much as the next guy but in the wrong hands, even good t-shirts can go bad. So, we’ve compiled a handy list of tips to keep in mind when you design your own shirt.

Don’t forget the spellcheque

Consider your message, like really.

Are you an ex-con, current con or seriously considering becoming a con? Then you might want to consider the messaging on your custom shirt. Who knows when you’ll be posing for a mug shot…

And we don’t mean in a good way. We mean on one of those ‘ 25 t-shirt fails’ lists. When you design your own shirt, always remember - what looks good/sounds funny in the safety of your own home could actually be an (awkward) viral sensation. Here’s a few people who missed the memo…


Is it age-appropriate?

How do you know if it’s age appropriate? Ask yourself this: if I turned up to Christmas lunch in this shirt, would my grand kids vomit on the spot?

And that’s it – all the tips and tricks to designing your own tshirt!
