I never would have guessed when I added "ink" to the materials list that I'd be having t-shirts printed. But now that I have, nothing else seems to make sense for this material.
As mentioned 100 times, the wedding weekend in DC was a reunion for my college girlfriends. In one email over the summer, the idea was tossed out to have t-shirts made. Unlike some of our grand plans, this one never fizzled out, so I came up with a simple design and had them printed through Custom Ink.
We call ourselves the "gtrain" which is really just a mash-up of "gmail" and "email-train." It sounds strange typed out, but in real life seems to make perfect sense. I stuck the text in a circle logo and it was approved by the group. We were pretty stumped on what would work for the backs though until someone threw out the idea of hashtags.
Thanks to twitter, we often add sarcastic comments in hashtag form to our emails. Some of these are actual hashtags we have used, but most are just inside jokes (with a few blurred to protect the innocent) from the past NINE years (though most come from our senior year of college).
They are so random, but they are also so us. The nostalgia kicks in big time when I am with these girls.
We wore them all day Saturday and to the bar where we watched our first football game of the season. I am so happy with how they turned out. Our next gtrain wedding is May 5th and I feel like we might need another round of t-shirts for that one.
This is project 14 of 27. I am attempting to complete 27 craft projects using 27 different materials before I turn 28 on 02.22.13. You can follow my progress here on the blog or on pinterest. Birthday challenges are my favorite. You can see the 26 Projects I completed while 26 here and the 27 materials I have used so far here.
