Family Travel Shirts

Matching family t-shirts for vacations are not just for TV show families like The Simpsons or The Brady Bunch. More and more families and groups are opting to wear matching shirts when travelling for the following reasons:

 

Safety

When traveling in busy cities or theme parks, kids and adults in the group are more likely to stay within the group and not get lost. Wearing matching t-shirts enhances the visibility of your family making it easier for the children to spot you, and for you to keep an eye on them. It’s also easier when trying to do a head count as you can easily spot the members of your travel group. In the event that someone does get lost, it’s also great to be able to describe what the family member is wearing – if you have matching t-shirts, you can simply show tour guides or resort staff your own t-shirt so they know what to look out for. If you are wearing matching t-shirts for safety reasons, you might want to consider ordering your t-shirts in a bright or fluorescent color, so that each member of the travel party stands out as much as possible.

 

Bonding

Whether you are travelling as a family, as part of a sports team, sorority or other group, wearing matching shirts will help each person to bond as a group and will maximise the fun! If you are travelling as part of a sports team or group, you may want to consider having your team name printed on the back of each shirt, along with individual names or numbers to represent each member of the group.

 

Waiting

Matching shirts can be a really fun way of preparing for your trip. Those who have planned fun family vacations in the past will know how difficult it is to get through that period in-between booking and planning for your vacation, and actually leaving for it. Matching t-shirts are a fantastic way to enhance that limbo period and get everyone excited about the trip while the wait is on! Creating your matching t-shirts will also help to pass the time while you wait for your vacation, as you shop for your shirts, or work on the design for them.

 

Memories

Matching shirts are a fantastic way to remember your vacation for years to come, and make a sentimental, memorable keepsake that you can keep and wear over and over again. If the vacation is in celebration of an event such as an anniversary or family reunion, then putting the name of the event and the date on the shirt will also help to commemorate the event, and can then be worn on following anniversaries of the date as a way of honor the occasion and remembering the fun of the past trip.

 

Photos

Lastly, one of the best reasons for wearing matching shirts is for photographic purposes. In the digital age, most people make photos a priority on vacation, ensuring that they snap lots of great pictures to share with their social networks and to help them remember the trip in years to come. Matching t-shirts are a terrific way to ensure that everyone on the trip is color co-ordinated, and that nobody’s clothing will clash in any pictures. Matching t-shirts are also a great way to clearly see who is on the trip in a printed photo, especially when photos are being taken in crowded places.
