Why Sell Personalized Easter Shirts?
You should review two things when looking to sell Easter-themed shirts: Easter buying expenses and online purchasing trends. Luckily, recent years have been generous for the entrepreneurial bunny.
Starting from 2019, statistics show that Easter is not only loved by older folks but that, in fact, 85% of the biggest spending during that period comes from 18-35 year olds with a budget of $189 per person.
Additionally, a research from the US National Retail Federation showed a record increase in Easter spending in 2020, a year when physical storefronts faced lockdown restrictions, forcing businesses to accelerate eCommerce operations.
With a new surge of digital storefronts in place, online retail continues to boom over pre-pandemic estimates. The average US buyer spent $179.7 on Easter Sunday 2021. That’s a nearly 20% increase from 2019.
2022 expects fewer mandates. Families will again be able to plan larger celebrations, so it’s safe to say that average holiday spending will increase.
Inspiration for Easter Shirt Designs
Easter presents an excellent opportunity to have some fun with your designs. This market is popular with both adults and kids, giving you the creative license to go with more adult-themed jokes or just some cute and funny Easter shirts for kids.
Easter typically falls at the beginning or midway through the spring season. This is great news for you and your store. Spring is when customers are looking to clean out winter clothes and bring in more summer styles.
Easter shirts can be everything your customers are looking for. They can be floral, they can be fun, or they can reflect the mood that people feel at the moment.
Funny Easter Shirts
Bring a bit of fun to your designs with funny easter shirt ideas. Make a graphic tee celebrating “Everyone’s second favorite holiday.”
Humor is subjective, but being timely, sticking to new trends, and relying on some form of irony is a good way to experiment. Consider what type of design fits your store best:
Cute Easter Shirts
You can’t go wrong with cute Easter shirt designs, especially if you’re designing for children or infants. An egg-shaped design for an egg-shaped toddler is as precious as it’s completely lost on them, but it certainly won’t be lost on their parents.
Who’s going to argue with a plus-sized infant tee? The ideal garment for kids’ Easter shirts – you can go to town on both the novelty and cute factor here.
Create warm floral patterns for the new season, or add an adorable collage of all the cutest Easter mascots. Reprise sweet greetings for the spring equinox and the hopeful thaw of the end of winter. “Bunny kisses, Easter wishes” for the first Sunday of the blooming season.
Family Easter Shirts
Easter is a family holiday. From scavenge hunts in the morning to painting eggs at noon, it’s made perfect with matching Easter shirt ideas for the entire family.
Your matching shirt designs should come in multiple ready sizes. Find a clear theme that plays off one another and be creative with your presentation, customizing each design for a specific family member. For instance, give the parent a basket shirt with their child rolling along as a little egg.
Be mindful of reality. Each family is different, unique, and special. Celebrate large and small families, found families, and those tracing their name through generations.
Easter Graphic Tees
Graphic tees allow you to sport a quick and fun design on the print area, creating a novelty look that your customers can casually wear all year round.
You get more creative license by printing multiple designs, experimenting with minimalist color palettes, or a rendition of a sleek-looking poster design.
Consider whether your customers appreciate low-effort tees or have a use for joke gifts. Mention the holiday with an air of detachment. Be playful, for instance writing “Easter.” with big, bold letters.
Religious Easter Shirts
Consider adding religious Easter shirt ideas. Easter is about a lot of things to a lot of different people – that goes without saying. But many people continue to celebrate the religious traditions that inspired some of the activities we now see as Easter staples.
Easter gift-giving is a time-honored tradition in many Christian households. Offer a solemn celebration with thoughtful designs inspired by the now-famous “He is risen” iconography or other direct allusions to the resurrection of Christ.
