20 Awesome Back To School T-Shirt Ideas


August is kind of a weird month. On the one hand, it’s still summer. There’s still time to hit the beach, to grab that last minute vacation, to enjoy the heat and soak up the sun.

On the other, there’s the looming knowledge that before much longer, the school year will start up again.

For some, that creates no small degree of stress. You’ve gotta get school supplies for your kids and prep them for their classes.

For others, relaxation. The kids are going to be out of the house five or more days a week. You’ve got the place to yourself!

Of course, it’s not just kids and teens who are going back to school. Colleges and Universities are getting back into full swing, as well. That’s why, to help mark the occasion, we’re offering a blend of shirts for all groups – kids, teens, parents, young adults, and even teachers.

See if any of these designs catch your fancy. And even if they don’t, they could always provide inspiration for a custom shirt of your own. And BlueCotton’s Design Studio can help make that shirt a reality. And Nothing Can Stop Them
