Going Away to College Shirts

Custom College Shirts

Graduating from high school is an important milestone in a person's life. It marks the beginning of the transitional period from childhood/adolescence to adulthood. One of the most exciting parts of many young people's lives is the prospect of moving on to college or university. These months in between high school and college are filled with graduation ceremonies, graduation parties, and, later on in the summer, going away to college parties. One of the most popular types of parties is one where all those in attendance wear a shirt or sweatshirt that advertises the name of the college they will be on their way to in the fall. Instead of buying a boring and expensive piece of clothing from the university itself, go crazy and design your own custom t-shirts or custom hoodies that show off to which institution you will be on your way.

Things to Remember

The most important thing to remember is to avoid designing any copyrighted images, as no custom printing company will touch them. For example, instead of a shirt that simply says "Harvard" in a Harvard font, print something that says "I'm going to Harvard!", or "I'm better than you 'cause I'm going to Harvard." This way, you keep it playful and fun, and you avoid any copyright issues. You also need to be careful about using the exact same colors. A good rule of thumb is that if one can recognize the shirt as a shirt from Harvard, you are out of luck. Instead, it can be a funny shirt that happens to say Harvard. In any case, I think that will be much more fun for the party than a boring old official college sweater.

Have a great summer before you move on to college and adulthood! Make yourself a funny custom college shirt, but remember to be careful about violating copyright laws.
