Make no mistake, T-shirts are powerful. They are much more than meets the eye and far more influential than any other piece of clothing. They communicate countless meanings to everyone who sees them. They start conversations and bring people together. They help you show a little bit about yourself; your occupation, hobbies, beliefs, or just how cool you are!
When the same shirts are worn by groups of people it demonstrates a common identity and solidarity of purpose. It creates a sense of belonging to something bigger than yourself. It tells everyone you are all on the same team.
T-shirts can keep people safe and even save lives. Groups wear colored t-shirts for safety so they can easily spot each other at a distance or in crowds.
Wearing a t-shirt can show your support for a cause and t-shirts can be sold to raise money for anything worthwhile. T-shirts are very powerful when it comes to raising money for a good cause.
T- shirts are powerful for businesses. When T-shirts are given away to the public or potential customers they can advertise your company and create good will. When you give them to your employees they provide a boost to moral and create an atmosphere of teamwork.
But, a t-shirt is only as powerful as what is printed on it. Nobody walks up to someone wearing a blank shirt and says, “ I like your t-shirt.” The printed graphic and message give the t-shirt it's power.
The graphic designer and the screen printer are the wizards that give the ordinary blank t-shirt meaning. They greatly increase it's value and give it power.
So, now I hope you will never think of a t-shirt as a common everyday commodity. But instead, be amazed at it's great value and awesome power!
