A new business has opened in East Yorkshire allowing families to create cute & personalised clothing for children and adults alike. Alphabet Shirts have teamed up with some of the world’s best graphic designers and added some of of their own technology to make creating personalised t-shirt designs easier than ever.
Beverley resident and father of two girls, John Cant, explains how he came up with the idea for the personalized t-shirts. “I was sick of buying stuff which my family didn’t need at birthdays and Christmas – there’s only so much space for toys, right?
I wanted to “create” a personal & unique present especially for my family, but in all honesty, I’m rubbish at art so drawing something wasn’t an option for me.
Then I discovered a whole host of amazing alphabets called 36 Days of Type. “AHaa! A word grid with a hidden message”, I thought. So I made a word search with all of our names and they loved them. My eldest daughter, Maya, was just learning to read so she had great fun with it. Next, friends started asking me where I got them from. So I decided to turn it into a business and alphabet-shirts.com was born. I’m now on a mission to help thousands of other families look great too.
There is a wide range of alphabet designs available, and customers can make designs as simple or complex as they want. Whether it’s a single word, a short phrase or a word-search style grid with hidden words, it’s easy to create a stunning personalized design thanks to the illustrated alphabets.
John has taken inspiration from the likes of “Lost My Name” Book to combine beautiful design with personalization and technology, which he hopes is a winning formula.
I loved these T shirts so much I ordered some for my two children. Can you spot all of the words in the wordsearch? My eldest spent ages looking! There’s Hull, East, Riding, Mumbler, Kids and their names Zachary and Brooke to find. Happy hunting!
