This Summer, whether you’re tailgating outside of the stadium, cheering for the Red Sox from the comfort of your couch, or participating in your favorite sports game, it’s important to show your team spirit. A great way to do this is by wearing a custom t-shirt.
T-shirts with sayings like, “Kiss Me I’m a Red Sox Fan” or “Don’t Puck With Us” will show those around you who you’re really rooting for. You can even go one step further and add your favorite player’s nickname – or your nickname – to your shirt.
Sure, you can purchase a pre-made one from a team shop, but that will just make you blend in with the crowd. The whole point of being a sports fan is to stand out. That’s why people attend games wearing face and body paint and elaborate costumes – to show how big of a fan they are and to make sure that everyone around them knows it.
Fire up the grill, strap on your running shoes, and jump into the pool; it’s officially summer! At Tully Ink we are extremely excited to usher in the warm weather and all the barbecues, outdoor activities and holiday celebrations that come with it.
Over the past month, we've printed and designed a number of t-shirts for people holding summer events and wanted to share them with you. We hope they will inspire you to create your own screen printed t-shirts, tote bags and hats for your next road race, beach party or family reunion.
"You might find Dad grilling up some delicious BBQ dinner in this tank after a long beach day"
"Fun 4th of July tank top for TeeRex Co. with Uncle Rex sporting his favorite colors - Red, White & Blue"
"Name us a better team-building Summer company activity than a game of cornhole in bright neon t-shirts?"
"Look to the waves of Boston Harbor for new young sailors wearing Courageous Sailing t-shirts"
"Stand out as a great Summer softball team with a witty team name and logo design"
Bring on the Springtime! The Sweet Sixteen is finally here. About time, this dirty snow is killing my motivation. I haven't even checked but can you bounce a basketball on a clear court outside or does a pickup game still have the chance of getting broken up over a snowball fight?
At least there is youthful excitement on the television. Look at the fans pictured above, does fandom get any more hardcore? Powdered wigs, painted chests or sunglasses covering the red eyes of a pale albino? I don't know but that picture is the essence of March Madness. Looking behind the front row of March maniacs is where you saw me seated in my UMass days. Sure, I give the body painted fans credit for showing their allegiance but I was happy to sport my team's colors in t-shirt form.
Nothing better than picking up a school's shirt that you will cherish for years to come. Like t-shirts from the merch table of a memorable concert, t-shirts are able to capture the good memories. I wasn't lucky enough to support a Marcus Camby at UMass but at least I can tell you I did see some great games with Anthony Anderson, a little known Boston-bred point scorer. I know I also upped my personal b-ball game while sporting UMass basketball shirts on the courts of Boyden Gym and the Southwest horseshoe.
School t-shirts also are great conversation starters. I never knew a t-shirt would have found me fellow Minutemen alumni while living on the sunny beaches of San Diego. I even ran into an older couple that bought me breakfast in Kansas because their daughter was currently attending UMass Amherst.
What is also cool is that the t-shirt can evolve. Sure it might have had short sleeves for the balmy Spring days of Boston but what good are sleeves for the warm Spring days of Mission Beach? Heck, my UMass shirts are still in my drawers but maybe a future Chocolate Lab puppy can be proud to rock the Maroon & White colors of my college days?
No matter your team of choice, whether pro, amateur or college show your support by wearing their t-shirts. I might even order a Florida Gulf Coast shirt to show my support for the Cinderella underdog this year. It would have been better if Harvard made it to the 16, I think I have one of their tees lying in the drawer below my future UMass doggie t-shirts ;)
When not printing then running along the Charles or at a Red Sox game soaking up the sun.
