Build a strong sense of community and fellowship at your church with custom t-shirts that your congregation can wear with pride. For active churches with engaged members, there are so many occasions that are perfect for creating custom apparel that members will love to wear. Come up with your own shirt design, or we can help you create a logo or design that perfectly captures the spirit of your church community.
Benefits Of Printing Custom Shirts For Your Church
Besides being a lot of fun, creating custom shirts for your church can have some benefits for your community.
Stronger Sense Of Community
We all want to feel a sense of belonging. Religious individuals are drawn to churches with a strong sense of community and fellowship. Custom shirts with your parish logo or an appropriate church-related design can help foster a sense of unity amongst parishioners. Matching shirts at church events will make members look and feel like a united group.
Increased Name Awareness
If you’re trying to grow your church by inviting new members, name recognition is helpful. When members of the broader community see members of your parish in custom shirts with your church name and logo, they’re more likely to think of you when looking for a church to join or attend.
Additional Donations Through Fundraising
Whether you’re having a fundraising event, or just want to provide spirit wear for your church community and hoping to raise a little extra money in the process, selling shirts and apparel customized for your community is a great way to raise funds. Good Ink can help you set up an online apparel store where you can take orders and receive a portion of the profits from every sale.
Common Events For Custom Church Apparel
Custom apparel is a great way to stand out at church events. Custom shirts can be worn by volunteers or staff working at an event so that they are easily spotted and recognizable. Or you can sell custom shirts to members of your church and attendees at church events so that they can feel like part of the community. You can use your church’s logo or a generic church design, or come up with a design specific to the event. We regularly help churches print the following types of event shirts:
- Vacation bible school shirts
- Summer camp shirts
- Baptism shirts
- Winter/summer retreats shirts
- Youth group event shirts
- Fundraising shirts
- Mission trip shirts
- Church festival shirts
- Fish fry or spaghetti dinner shirts
Items To Include In Your Custom Church Shirt Design
When designing a custom shirt for your church or a church event, include important information to tell the world who you are. Include your church name and location, if applicable. When creating a custom shirt for a specific church event, include the event name, location, and date to commemorate the event.
Using bold fonts and an eye-catching logo alone for your custom church shirts can make a statement. When you want to get more creative and add more graphics, consider using religious iconography such as a cross, doves, praying hands, fish, a trinity symbol, flames, etc. Recognizable Christian images will make it clear to others what your shirts represent. Also consider adding additional text, such as a Bible verse that’s meaningful to your church community.
Coming up with a design for a church shirt is a great opportunity for artistic members of your congregation or church staff to share their talents. If you don’t have someone in your church community who can create the design you want, or if you want professional help to create a polished design, our designers can help you come up with a shirt design that’s just right at no additional cost.
