Finding just the right gift can be a challenge, but it doesn’t need to be that way. This holiday season gives a one-of-a-kind gift to friends and family that will be unlike anything else they receive, and will also be a favorite. Create a custom tee shirt design for your friends and family as a unique holiday gift in Nashville.

Think Long Term

Research has shown that when someone gives a gift, they focus on the moment the gift is unwrapped. This makes sense because that is the big moment for the person giving the gift. People who receive gifts appreciate the usefulness of a gift. Unwrapping the present is not the highlight for them. Whether or not they can use the gift long-term is what matters. Custom printed tees as a gift appeal to both the sender and receiver because it is exciting to open, but useful long term.

Thoughtful Gift

Gifting custom designed and printed tee shirts show your family and friends that you care. This is the type of gift that builds upon a shared history and relationship. A tee shirt can seem like a simple gift, but a custom printed shirt will encompass the experiences you have shared with your gift recipients.

Completely Unique

Custom tees are unique, and your friends and family will likely not receive anything else like it. Even if they receive other articles of clothing, it will not have the sentimental value and level of personalization that your custom tee will offer.

Useful Gift

Everyone has a use for a tee shirt. You can all plan to wear your custom tees at a reunion or future gathering. If you all plan to wear your shirts together at some point, your gift will help build anticipation. Tee shirts are wardrobe staples and whether worn to run errands, hit the gym or when just going about regular activities your friends and relatives will undoubtedly have a use for your custom tee.

Come Up With a Theme

When coming up with ideas for custom tees decide on a theme. A theme will give the design purpose and make it a thoughtful gift your friends and family will appreciate. Consider a Nashville holiday theme with a local flair.

Possible Themes for Family

For your family, you can create custom tees that have your family name on it and maybe your hometown or other pertinent details. Using your last name as the name of a college is a popular option. Include a crest if using a college theme for an authentic look. Your family custom tee can feature a holiday greeting or the date for your next family reunion.

Theme Ideas for Friends

For a group of friends think about what it is that brought you all together. If you all met at school or a job or a club, use that as inspiration for the theme. Custom tees as a gift can also be a creative way to ask a group of friends to be in your wedding.

Ordering Custom Tees

Custom designed gifts add a personal touch and make the item more thoughtful. Creating something custom also allows you to create exactly what you envision. We have simplified the ordering process to make it as easy as possible.

Create Your Design

If you have design skills and access to design software you can create the digital artwork you want to be printed on your custom tees. If you have questions about how to set up the file, or if you have an idea, but need help creating the files, we can help.

Figure Out Quantity

Determining how many shirts to order and sizes can be tricky. Write everything down to keep track and make sure everyone is accounted for and receives a custom tee. We have a low order minimum of 12 for orders including screen printing and embroidery. Orders with digital printing have no minimum. If you need low quantities, this can be beneficial, but the price per shirt is based on the total number of shirts ordered. Making custom printed tee shirts can be a cost-effective holiday gift option.


Make sure to give yourself plenty of time to design and order your custom tees. We need about one week to print your shirts once the design and order details are final. If you need to wrap and ship your shirts to your family and friends, factor in enough time when placing your order.

Giving the Perfect Gift

A lot goes into finding the perfect gift. The item should be something the recipient can use and something they will appreciate. Custom printed tees fulfill these requirements and are something your friends and family members will enjoy, appreciate and are excited to wear.
