Custom Shirts for Girl Scout Activities
I had a Girl Scout leader reach out to me to make shirts for her troop’s upcoming camping event. Woohoo! I love coming up with custom designs. She wanted something that included their troop number on the design. Being a former girl scout, memories of girl scout activities came flooding back; earning badges, singing songs, camping with friends…
I went to work (using my trusty Adobe Illustrator). I came up with 2 different designs to start to make sure I was on the right track with what she envisioned. From there I sent the mockups to my customer, and she chose one of the designs I had come up with on the first try!
Then she asked for another design for her other troop! This time she asked for a pocket design on the front and a larger design on the back of the shirts.
Until now, I have never made a shirt with designs on both the front and back. I referred to the online course that I took to learn about using my screen press. The hardest part was finding the best place to line up the pocket design. I got it figured out and look!
After a few hours, I went back to line up the back design. I’m so happy with how they turned out.
The green shirts were mostly youth sizes, so I changed my platen and got it all set up. I was able to get 21 shirts out of 1 piece of vinyl!
