Creating Customized T-Shirts and Apparel for 5k Races

Shares

disclosure

Since my knee injury this summer, I’ve been counting down the time to get back into an active lifestyle. I’ve been spending countless hours at the gym with a personal trainer, gaining strength and endurance. Now that I’m almost fully recovered, my friends and I were excited to sign up for the Santa 5k run/walk.

One of the best parts of a themed 5k is the option to dress up your team. We love to make things like custom t-shirts and tutus.

For the Santa 5k run/walk, we created a team and named it the Reindeer Games Committee. Each runner/walker will have a reindeer name on their shirt, I chose to be Vixen. Clever huh?

For the Santa 5k race, we turned to MyLocker for help in making our team shirts. MyLocker is a website that lets you design your own custom t-shirt, custom hoodie, golf polo, fleece, bag or almost any type of custom gear in a quick, fun and easy way.  

The order process was easy to, starting with your selection of t-shirt color and type of activity that you are designing a shirt for.

There are multitudes of design ideas to choose from, which can be customized further with the writing that you would like on your t-shirt. I found the entire process easy to do and only incurred one problem along the way.

If you haven’t noticed, my shirt indicates that it is 2015. It seems that all of the shirts automatically populated the year of 2015. This is a customizable field and it was my overlook during the order process.

Thankfully, the MyLocker customer service was above the bar and helped me re-order the shirts with the correct year. We should be getting them this week!

While we aren’t in a hurry to get them in the mail, I was so glad to see that most of MyLocker’s products ship within two days. There are many events and occasions when fast shipping would be super helpful. 

I also like that there is no minimum number of products you have to order, which makes it easy to create completely personalized gear for yourself, your school team, local or charitable organization, for an event or as a gift. While a bulk order is helpful for a big team, sometimes I only need 1-2 shirts. 

We try to do a 5k walk/run at least once a month and love that we can make more of these fun shirts from MyLocker.

Check out MyLocker and create custom apparel for your next event!

    I've never heard of My Locker before, but I'm going to bookmark it because my daughter is putting together a snowboarder-cross team and being able to create team shirts would be awesome! Audrey at Barking Mad! recently posted..Are Kids Getting Meaner? Reply

    I like that you can do this for smaller groups and teams. I will definitely be keeping this company in mind for future events. Reply

    What a cute shirt!! I have made custom shirts for sorority/fraternity/brand events in college, but haven't had the chance to make any in awhile. I wanted to be a fashion designer when I was a kid so I find it fun! Shell Feis recently posted..Disney’s Maleficent is Available Now! Reply

    One of my friends was just asking me about a company that makes t-shirts. Wish I had known about MyLocker sooner. She did a breast cancer walk and wanted matching tees for her group. Now I know where to tell her to go. Reply

    I absolutely love your team name and the color combination!! I am admittedly a bit intimated by 5Ks (I have never done one), but I think I would really enjoy doing it with a group of friends! And hey, I always love a good t-shirt, so there's that. :) Whitney Jordan recently posted..Choosing The Perfect Christmas Card Reply

    I love your t-shirt. I have to check them out because I want to get matching shirts for our family for Christmas. It's one of my quirky traditions. ;) Reply
