We are in the heart of reunion t-shirt printing season. And, that’s fortunate for all of us in the digital, screen and graphic printing businesses who will produce short or long-run t-shirt projects for family, high school or other gatherings in the next several months. Whether you operate from a part-time garage-based printing business, a store-front location, an embroidery + digital printing shop, a silk screen printing commercial enterprise or digital printing company – everyone reaps the benefits. And, the graphic designers are pretty excited to unleash extreme, comic reunion designs and slogans on the masses.
We are the people our mom warned us about.
In their blog, bluecotton.com offers some pretty F.U.N.N.Y. reunion slogans. Click HERE to read their suggestions for some good one-liners. And, then there are these from Zazzle.com. Both companies offer a place to start when needing shirts with comic slogans. And, one tip. With children and tweens in the mix, remember to check on the slogan rating before authorizing the printing order.

The survivors and ‘thrivers’ of reunion-land are all the t-shirt printers and their behind the scenes support; companies like RhinoTech who manufacture and distribute digital, screen and graphics equipment including digital heat transfer papers and printers and screen cleaning products, washout booths, filtration systems and more. Because of eco-friendly cleaning products, for example, screen frames are cleaned quickly and fully for reuse to enable the printers to continue to produce millions of reunion t-shirts on a nation-wide basis.
Those that also thrive and are winners are all the customers who now have an idea of how to get their shirts printed with some unconventional reunion slogans and/or how and where to have their own creative one-liners come to life on a t-shirt. To everyone involved in reunion season, keep on laughing!
Much appreciation is extended for taking the time to read this news.
