I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for MyLocker. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I’m a blogger. I tend to get a lot of packages delivered to my door on a regular basis. Sometimes I receive surprise packages, or a company sends a few extra goodies in the box along with the product sent to be reviewed.
Many times I receive t-shirts from brands or for the various campaigns I work on. Most of the time they are not my size so I end up giving them to my teenage son or daughter. They are perfectly good shirts and my kids get a kick out of them.
Have you ever thought about creating your own t-shirt or custom apparel for your team, group, club or organization? How about personalize clothing for an upcoming family reunion or wedding celebration?
You can make your own custom t-shirts and apparel quickly and easily with My Locker.
My Locker gives customers the opportunity to customize t-shirts, hoodies, polos, bags and other gear online. If you don’t have a specific logo in mind you can use one of their many pre-made designs and then customize it (texts, font, colors…) to make it your own.
You could easily design a piece of apparel in 30 seconds!
I was invited to try out My Locker for myself through Mom Central. I was sent a gift code to make up some apparel.
I was thinking about the things my kids are involved with at school. My daughter is active in Student Government and the “Best Buddies” Club (a club where students are actively involved with developmentally disabled students at school). My son isn’t currently participating in any clubs or groups.
I had thought about getting my daughter a shirt for Student Government or Best Buddies but I couldn’t find a logo I could use. Neither group has one.
I came up with an even better idea. My daughter gradates in June (Class of 2015). I thought it would be fun to create a graduation shirt for her in school colors and personalize it with her graduation year. I also thought it would be nice to make one up for my son too (he graduates in 2017).
I was able to find my kid’s high school on the My Locker site.
I loved that there were multiple designs options available to me. I could have gone with the designs “as is” or tweak them to make them my own. I opted to make them my own.
I would show you screen shots but I don’t want to make it known what high school my kids attend, for obvious reasons.
I quickly found the design I wanted to use but I ended up taking a little longer because I wanted to tweak a few different designs to narrow it down to the one I wanted to use for the shirts.
I like that you can change the apparel color as well as the text color. I opted for school colors since it was for high school. If I was making this for a family reunion I would most likely order shirts in different colors for each family member.
My Locker gives you a lot of options for both men and women. You can have your design printed on a t-shirt, tank top, sweat pants, jackets, jerseys, backpacks, baby onesies and more. I opted for regular t-shirts. I had considered long sleeved shirts for both kids but I think they would get more use out of short sleeves which can be worn year round (under a coat or sweatshirt in the cold weather).
Here is one of the shirts I had made up. I had to block out the high school name for security reasons. I also want to apologize for the wrinkles. In hinesigh I should have taken a photo the day the shirts arrived. My kids have a tendency to shove things in their dresser drawers (which is the case with my son’s shirt) there for it has a lot of wrinkles and I didn’t have time to drag out the ironing board and iron.
The custom t-shirt is very well made. It washes and wears well too. Both of my kids have already worn their shirts and they have been washed. The image printed on them is still in tact. Unlike other t-shirts the image didn’t crack or pull off.
I was very impressed with how quickly my order arrived too. My Locker ships within two days so you can have your products not long after you place your order.
I also appreciate that you don’t have to place a huge order. Some custom apparel sites require that you buy in bulk. That is OK if you are purchasing for a business event or family reunion where you might have a need to order a dozen or more pieces of apparel. But sometimes you don’t want or need that many. With My Locker you can order 1 or 1,000 – whatever you need.
I plan on purchasing a few more things with Class of 2015 on it for my daughter. I know she will love that, especially when it gets close to graduation time.
Whether you are looking to personalize apparel for a gift, or looking to outfit your entire group or organization, stop by My Locker and see how quickly and easily you can create the perfect piece of apparel.
What do you think about My Locker? Do you have a need for personalized apparel in the near future?
