On the second shirt of Christmas, we printed “North Pole” Plaid Text with Light String
On the third shirt of Christmas, we printed a “Dear Santa, I Want It All” Rhinestone Transfer
On the fourth shirt of Christmas, we printed a “Hairy Christmas” Screen Printed Transfer
On the fifth shirt of Christmas, we ordered Great Dane Graphics Stock Art as a CAD-PRINTZ® Transfer
If your business is in an area where the white stuff falls from the sky in the months after summer and fall, then winter festivals are most likely happening near you. What better way to promote them than having a warm sweatshirt shining with the festival design?
Luckily winter isn’t the only season that has festivals, and shirts aren’t the only items that can be decorated to celebrate them. #ThinkSpring and shorts, can coolers, umbrellas, towels, shoes, hats, blankets, are just a few things that may inspire you to approach the festival purchasing committees!
See below for the directions on how we created this fun shirt for the Harwood Winter Fest.
