If clothes could talk, we believe they could talk about you all day. Your deepest passions and your darkest secrets. Whether you choose to wear black to a wedding or get decked up in a pantsuit for a job interview, a woman’s outfit is a glimpse into her personality. Having established that, there is one fashion item that allows you to express yourself in style… all kinds of printed slogan T-shirts, FTW! Scroll to see how designers do it to make statements of their own...
And how sometimes celebrities use it just to have a little fun with their OOTDs!
With the online marketplace bursting at the seams with websites that offer customisation, you can now put your vision onto your clothes. The most exciting bit: you have options of the picture to print, the font of the text and even the graphics! Think about it, you can LITERALLY get anything you want to be printed on a tee. If that has your mind racing, we have a few ideas right here to get you started:
Hardcore music lovers are already familiar with this one! You have image options of album covers, band member lineups, individual artist portraits and much more. Mix and match your front print with back prints. Think song lyrics, album tracklists, concert dates etc.

You don’t have to pick loud, in-your-face prints to make a point with your T-shirt. A subtle and strategically placed print can be equally or, rather, more effective. With symbols and graphics already available to express a wide range of emotions, you are spoilt for choice here.
We all have our idols, don’t we? People we admire and shape our lives according to. It can be someone from your family or a well-known face… Imagine how empowering carrying your inspirations on your chest could be. The best kind of motivation, TBH.

A personal favourite is to send in my old family photographs for T-shirt printing. They make for excellent personalised gifts for friends and family. Let them know how much time and thought you put in your holiday presents (and hope they remember that while buying your next birthday gift).
We all have those quotes that get us through hard times. Immortalise your favourite quote on a plain T-shirt. This will be your pick-me-up for days you need an extra push on! And hey, maybe someone else will spot your tee on a bad day, and feel better. Worth a shot, no?
