Celebrate School Fall Festivals and Events with These Shirt Design Ideas

The days are shorter, the nights are crisp, and the kids head back to school. It must be fall. And let’s not forget all the beautiful autumn colors either, or the steady diet of pumpkin lattes you’ll be indulging in until Christmas time. Fall is also a time of outdoor festivals and events. From autumn craft fairs and fall foliage festivals to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and Madison County Covered Bridge Festival, communities across the U.S. celebrate the arrival of fall with all sorts of special events -and chances are participants are enjoying themselves with a piping hot cup of cider in one hand and a cider donut in the other. However, amidst the leaf peeping and apple picking there are two events in the fall that stand above the rest: Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Oktoberfest

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual international health campaign to increase awareness of the disease and raise funds for research. High schools throughout the nation will be hosting fundraising events. Car washes, bake sales, silent auctions, walks, runs, and bike rides are just a few of the creative Pink Out fundraising events students have organized to increase awareness of the disease. These annual events help to educate young women about breast cancer, and at the same time they create a sense of responsibility, togetherness, and school unity. You can support the cause with one of our custom designed Breast Cancer Awareness t-shirts. If you’re participating in a walk or race, we can customize the shirt with a name, slogan, and date.


Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival held in Munich, Germany, but almost every town in America has a variation of the beloved Bavarian event. In other words, you don’t need to book a flight on Lufthansa to enjoy knockwurst, bratwurst, entertainment, and dancing. And let’s not forget those traditional German pretzels, either. While dirndl dresses and lederhosen are the traditional style of dress at Oktoberfest, you can show off your festival spirit with one of our customized Oktoberfest t-shirts. While you’ll probably never put on a pair of lederhosen again, you can enjoy an Oktoberfest t-shirt long after the schnitzel is gone and the dancing is over.

The Best Softball Slogans and Quotes for Shirts

Looking for clever softball slogans and quotes for your team’s shirts.  Look no further.  We’ve put together a list of some of our favorites to use on your softball team shirts.  Express your passion for the game by choosing the slogan or quote that best reflects your team’s spirit.  After all the blood, sweat and tears your dedication to the game should be worn.  The competition will fear you, your teammates will embrace you, and moms will love you.



This is our time!

We don’t  wear cups, we win them.

Fresh cut grass, dragged dirt, ring of a bat, a diving catch, a blocked ball, sweating, bleeding, diving into home.  Not a bad way to spend a few hours.

95% of softball is 100% mental.

Strawberry’s always hurt less when the umpire calls you safe.

In it to win it

Eat. Sleep. Play Softball.

There’s nothing soft about us.

See the Ball.  Hit the Ball.  Run like Hell.

Sixty feet, twenty-one outs, nine players, seven innings, four bases, three strikes, two teams, one winner.

We play with big balls.

Play for the name on the front of your jersey, and make them remember the name on the back.

It doesn’t sparkle but I guard this diamond with my life.

Softball is not a one women sport, you have to have faith in those other 8 girls out there with you, because you are all playing the same game.  You win as a team, you lose as a team.

Throw your heart over the fence and the ball will go with it.

When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.  But when a pitcher hands you a changeup, smack it down her throat.

I can go from 1st to 3rd on a single to center, break up a double play at 2nd, score the winning run with a head first slide into home, and still leave the field looking like a lady.

Pain is temporary, guys dig scars, but glory last forever.

All the talent in the world won’t take you anywhere without your teammates.  One team.  One Goal.

Life is simple.  Eat. Sleep. Play Softball.

Softball doesn’t build character it reveals it.

The difference between try and triumph is a little umph.

It’s not about being the best, It’s about being better than you were yesterday.

The ones who say “you can’t” and “you won’t” are probably the ones scared that “you will”

Strength:  A river cuts through a rock not because of its power but its persistence.

If you didn’t get dirty.  You didn’t play.

Bustin’ ours so we kick yours.

Softball is life with the volume turned up!  How loud is your game?

I love softball so much I bleed yellow with red laces.

Pink Out Breast Cancer Fundraiser Ideas

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and high schools throughout the nation will be holding Pink Out events. Pink Out is a fundraising program that empowers students to raise awareness among their peers, teachers, and parents about breast cancer. Pink Out events are held to educate young women about the disease and the importance of breast health. These fundraising events create school unity and generate overall school pride. There are many simple and creative ways to successfully raise funds, and people are always willing to support a good cause.

Here are some ideas for creating a successful Pink Out event.

  • Get Crafty for a Cure.  Ask for donations for pink t-shirts and have a handmade quilt made.  It doesn’t cost a lot of money, you can then auction the quilt at your silent auction fundraising event.
  • Bike for a Cure.  This might take some planning, but you can organize a Bike for the Cure race and promote it within your community.  Try to find corporate sponsors that you can advertise on banners and t-shirts.  You can give each racer a t-shirt with their race entry fee.  Exercising for a Cause can be Fun!
  • Talk to local businesses and see if they can donate to your cause or better yet to ‘match’ your raised funds.  Offer them your printed Pink Out t-shirts in exchange.
  • Have a bake sale.  Try to get people to donate pink cakes, cupcakes, pies, and cookies that you can sell.
  • Hold a silent auction.  Contact local businesses for donations.  You can offer to advertise their business on your auction flyer or have their logo printed on your Breast Cancer Awareness T-Shirts.
  • Hold a car wash.  This one’s easy.  No cost, just some elbow grease!
  • Sell pink carnations at your team or group event.
  • Contact a local restaurant to hold a Pink Out fundraising night.  Some restaurants will give back 20% of restaurant sales if attendees show a flyer or ticket.   You can even add their logo to your Breast Cancer Awareness T-shirts as a sponsor.

These are just a few Pink Out Breast Cancer fundraising ideas to get you on your way to the best Pink Out event ever! Just remember to make it Pink and have lots of fun!
