5 Great Homecoming Shirt Sayings For a Fond Farewell

Homecoming’s a pretty special time of year for everyone involved. After all, you’ve got a bunch of students returning (possibly for the last time) to a place they gave several years – maybe even almost half a decade – of their lives to. Whether they loved their school or hated it, it’s going to be emotional, and more than a little nostalgic.

This year, why not give your alumni a little something to remember the school by? Something like a T shirt. It doesn’t have to be anything complicated, mind you – just toss a catchy little saying onto the front, and you’re pretty much golden.

We’ll even get you started with a few awesome ideas before you dive into the Design Studio to make some shirts for yourself:

What’s most important, however, are the words on the shirt – words of wisdom that your alumni can live by as they set out into the world.

“The past can hurt. But you can either run from it or learn from it.” […]

How can you ensure you create a set of T shirts that everybody in your class will wear with pride? The most important thing is that you choose a design that’s uniquely yours…but there’s a bit more to it than that. Let’s talk. […]
