Hen Party T-Shirt & Stag Party T-Shirt printing

Before your big day there’s a big night out.

Hen Party T-Shirts

Wedding season is in full flow and, here at Stitch & Print, we’re seeing the usual enquiries about Stag and Hen Party T-shirts from our many new Cumbria customers– as well as some less traditional requests from within the county and the Borders and Eden Valley!

The Hen Party T Shirt Phenomenon

Hen parties tend to fall into two types – the drink and dance party nights and the relax and refresh spa breaks.  We cater for both with a selection of T-shirt designs to mark out the party crowd (not including L plates, pink cowboy hats and feather boas) and fluffy dressing gowns and slippers for those who are planning to pamper.

Hen Party T Shirt for a Relaxing Weekend

Our hen party T-Shirts are always a favourite for the girls’ big night out and we’ve loads of options: round neck, V-neck, short-sleeved, long-sleeved, fitted or baggy.  Brides –to-be (or their bridesmaids) can choose from Stitch & Print’s range of hen night designs or send us their own idea and we can make something different – we can even bling a design with diamante effects for the perfect party.

One of the biggest hen party orders we ever had at Stitch & Print was for over 50 T-shirts for a local Cumbrian wedding.  These covered five different hen party dates and venues so the “Tour Dates” were recorded on the back with ticks for which ones the various girls were attending.

Stag Do T Shirts Too!

And for the gentlemen (!), we have a similarly wide range of colours, T-shirt designs and styles.  Stag night T-shirts tend to use a few standard jokes and images but we’re happy to create something a bit different if the best man has his own ideas.

One of the more unusual ones we were asked to create was for a diamante L Plate to be printed to the nether regions of a fluorescent yellow mankini whilst the rest of the boys had matching coloured T-Shirts to show their support – not a pretty look but decidedly funny!

We all know stag parties tend to be wild affairs and I think the main benefit of a party T-shirt is often to help these lads to recognise each other across a crowded bar or club. But if your chosen venue isn’t keen on something too in your face or larger groups of boys on the night out we’ve done hundreds of polo shirts with more discreet logos to help you find each other.

Whatever the ideas for the order and however many people are involved, it’s great for Stitch & Print to be part of a couple’s big day and we enjoy coming up with something a bit different to get the party started.

Bling Bling! Just add Diamantes …..

Diamante Designs: Adding Some Sparkle to Clothing Decoration

 As well as embroidery & print we also supply garments with diamante designs; Ideal for hen parties, anniversaries & birthdays diamante encrusted garments are fast becoming one of the most popular ways of glamming up your look.

Stitch & Print can make you sparkle by personalising t-shirts and various other fashion items with diamantes, If you would like to find out more, or get a quotation, you can either email office@stitchandprint.co.uk or telephone 016973 43546 with the quantity and type of garment you would like us to create.

Either your design is carefully created using diamante stones, which are then heat-sealed to the garment. The diamantes are even available in a variety of colours. Encrusting garments with diamantes really adds a bit of sophistication and bling to your wardrobe! But it isn’t always cheap to create your personalised look; A mould has to be created for each design so kitting out all the chicks for your hen party can be expensive!

Thankfully for the more popular designs we have a range of stock alternatives that are economical.

Alternatives and Additions to Diamante Bling for the Next Party Trip!

 The alternatives are holographic foil and Glitterflex:

Glitterflex and Holographic foils another alternative to diamante for added sparkle on Cumbrian nights out!

We use holographic foil, which is a type of transfer vinyl to replicate diamantes; It’s cut into stone shape & sized pieces & applied to the garment & the reflective nature gives a similar look to diamantes.

Glitterflex is a type of transfer vinyl that adds a lot of sparkle to your design however it doesn’t give the bright “catch the light” reflection that you get with stones or holographic foil.

Both of these decoration types add a real wow factor to your outfit and one-offs can be produced at a fraction of the cost of using diamantes, something well worth considering if you’re catering for individual designs for all the girls!

Be it diamantes, foil or glitterflex we’ve got the means to really give your party outfit the edge over the competition!

HEN PARTY OUTFITS for Wild Nights Out Before Domestication

Hen party outfits range from printed T shirts or luxurious pampering.

Before your big day – what’s your hen party outfit going to be?

T-Shirts seem to be the staple favourite for Hen Party Outfits of the wild kind! But for some ladies there’s a quieter more relaxed alternative! Luxurous dressing gowns are more the rule for these others, What’s the look you want for your big night out?

Not that long ago the words “hen party” were guaranteed to have you thinking short skirts, risque names to the back of a printed t shirt & liver damage! Add in the occasional decorated sash, some big heels, bright lipstick & dancing on tables & it’s the traditional recipe for a single girl’s last big night out with her mates.

Alternative Hen Party Outfits

Now we’re not saying that the traditional get up of the printed T-Shirt is dead – anything but! But there’s no doubt that things are changing in the world of hens!

decorated hen party outfits: T-Shirts, robes and dresses.

decorated hen party outfits range form the classic printed T-Shirt seen here to outfits designed for ultimate relaxation.

We’ve still got all of the standard T Shirt designs. Where you can either go with some simple text or add in one of our themed pictures to set the mood.

There are lots of options for printing, embroidery & diamante designs to add a bit of bling to the big night out. We’ve  also been asked for a “TOUR DATES” style shirt where the girls have more than one (or sometimes more than 6) big nights out to fit in to the pre wedding schedule.

The Pampered Hen Outfit

TC21 2012There has been a recent and growing trend towards girlie pamper days, or even weekends. Dressing Gowns & Slippers have became very popular as an alternative hen party outfit. They have the extra advantage that they can double as Bridesmaid gifts. There’s the further bonus of using them on the break as well as on the wedding morning. Pictures of your girls, all together for the make-up & hair styling are great for the wedding album! We’re able to embroider your details on them but you might want to consider diamante’s for the added wow effect.

Finishing Touches for the Hen Party and the Wedding!

How about umbrellas, just in case? We can have enough available to usher the Bride, brides Mother & Bridesmaids from the cars to the Church without a  chance of ruining a single head of hair or the hat. They can be personalised with your names & wedding details and they’re a great idea for a momento that will last almost forever. Hen party outfits will never be quite the same again!
