Budget was a major concern. I was not sure if the other parents will agree to what I had in mind. I actually wanted it to be a surprise so I worked on getting the softball team shirts myself. There are actually plenty of ways to lessen the expense and here are some of them.
Get The Commercially Available Softball Shirts.
I was not exactly sure if I had to time to come up with the designs and have them printed. So my first choice was to buy a generic looking commercial softball shirt and just put in the kid’s numbers and names at the back. This is probably one of the most convenient choices since they can be bought off the rack. They can cost a little more and I would have probably gone over budget with them. However, these shirts require nothing else after paying for them.
I’ve found a few great deals from the store and online too. That would have lifted some of my budget concerns. But I know most parents would want something more personal and I do too so I decided against this option.
Get Cheap Softball Shirts Screen Printed.
Screen printing services are available from both on and offline. I came across some expensive ones and some offers that are more affordable. This option would have sealed the deal. Unfortunately, the shop I was trying to negotiate with couldn’t make it on time because they were trying to accommodate their bulk orders first. They would have agreed on putting my order as priority but I had to pay for a rush fee which I did not necessarily have at the time.
Make Your Own Cheap Softball Shirts.
I wasn’t exactly sure how I was going to deal with this undertaking but I found a lot of great help online. There actually are a lot of useful suggestions from picking out the shirts into making softball shirts designs for kids. I also found some tools that made the design part much easier as well as complete how-to guides in printing them on.
The Softball Shirts Were A Success.
I had less than a week to put it all together and I did pull it through. It is just a matter of a little creativity and resourcefulness. The best part is I did not exceed the budget I set and the kids and my husband were actually impressed with the cheap softball shirts I came up with.
