Custom Fire Department Shirts

Custom shirts emblazoned with your fire department’s station number or fire department imagery give your firefighters a way to showcase their profession through their apparel. Whether you want a cohesive, unified look for an upcoming event, or you want a fun way to promote pride in your department, custom t-shirts will make your department easily recognizable and create a lasting impression.

Good Ink can help you create custom shirts for your fire department. We can help you create or perfect a design that fits your department to a T. Once we have a design you love, we’ll put your design on shirts that firefighters at your department will love to wear.

Fire Department Shirt Design Ideas

Already have a design in mind or a logo that you use for your custom shirts? That’s fantastic! We can easily help you print your existing design onto a t-shirt. If you need some ideas for a brand new design, here are some suggestions to help with brainstorming.

Popular Shirt Colors

The first thing anyone will probably notice about a shirt is the color. Some colors that are popular with fire departments are neutrals like black, white, gray, and navy. These colors look sharp and professional, and they’re appealing to people with a wide range of styles. Bolder colors, especially red, can also be eye-catching and make a statement as well. We offer shirts in a wide range of colors so that you can create apparel that’s tailored to your department's needs.

When considering shirt colors, keep in mind what color or colors you want for your printed design. We can print a single color or multicolored graphics and everything in between. Choose print colors that contrast nicely with your shirt color for a design that really stands out.

Information To Include On Your Shirt

When creating your design, there are a few pieces of information that you may want to include so that your department can be easily recognized. Think about including your fire department or district name or location and specific station number (if you have more than one). You may want to include the year that your department or station was established. If your station has a nickname, it could be a fun and creative touch to include that as well. If your shirts are for a specific event, include the name and date to commemorate the event.

Popular Design Icons

Including images or symbols in your design that are easily associated with firefighters will make it clear to the public who you are and what you do. Think about using one (or several) of the following as the basis for your design:

  • Badge (often shaped like a Maltese cross)
  • Fire trucks
  • Fire helmets
  • Fire
  • Fire hydrants
  • Fire hoses
  • Fire axes
  • Ladders
  • American flags

Popular Shirt Fonts

When selecting fonts for your fire department shirt design, consider opting for thick, bold fonts that look strong and professional. The following fonts are commonly used in many fire department logos:

  • Agency FB Black Condensed
  • Bernard MT Condensed
  • Copperplate Gothic Bold
  • Franchise
  • Helvetica
  • Impact
  • Imprint MT Shadow
  • Rockwell Extra Bold
  • Serpentine

Common Events For Custom Firefighter Apparel

Simple designs with your fire department’s basic information are versatile and can be used for a variety of occasions. Your firefighters can wear these shirts for identification when engaging in activities with the public, such as public speaking engagements, city parades, or giving firehouse tours. They’re also great for everyday wear and for instilling a sense of pride and unity.

Some events call for more creative shirt designs that are catered to the specific event. These can be especially fun for department fundraiser events, such as firehouse pancake breakfasts, firefighter cook-offs, fire truck pull contests, or community fire drill days. Custom shirts are a great way to commemorate events because they’re practical and can be worn again and again, long after the event is over.

Recommended Types Of Apparel For Fire Departments

It’s hard to go wrong when choosing what type of custom apparel to have your design printed on. T-shirts, long-sleeve shirts, sweatshirts, and hoodies are all versatile articles of clothing that can be worn frequently for much of the year. If you’re creating shirts for a specific occasion, consider the time of year and weather. Short sleeve t-shirts are best for warmer months, while long sleeve shirts or sweatshirts may be most appropriate for cool weather.
