  3. It’s More Than Just a T-Shirt

    What can you do with t-shirts?

    T-shirts are one of the most popular pieces of human clothing in the world today. Celebrities wear them (and even sell them for outrageous prices…lookin’ at you Kanye). Middle class people wear them. Poor people wear them. People in Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America wear them.

    But the t-shirt is something that many of us don’t think about every day. That’s a mistake, because they can be a very powerful tool.

    Companies can use t-shirts to brand themselves and create team spirit. Schools can use t-shirts to commemorate sports days or field trips. Families can use t-shirts to celebrate a family reunion. The only limit to the usage of t-shirts is your own creativity.
