How to create an iconic stag do group T-shirt

Group T-shirts have become an essential part of a decent stag weekend, performing the dual purpose of minimising luggage and signalling to locals that the lads have arrived to party. However, to make the T-shirt a truly unforgettable part of the weekend, there are a few tips to take the design to a new level.

1. Use a picture

Nobody wants to wear a T-shirt without a good picture, so go all-out. Get a horrendous picture of the stag, blow it up to cover almost the entire torso, and have a bit of fun. Why not add a picture of an ex-girlfriend to the back, or even the mother-in-law-to-be? Sail as close to the wind as possible when it comes to what is acceptable – just make sure the mother-in-law never gets her hands on one!

2. Neon colours

Nothing says stag weekend like a good neon T-shirt. If you’re visiting clubs, neon will help your group stand out among the other sweaty revellers, and will show the local female population that you are there to have some fun. Green, pink and orange work well regardless of location, and you might even look into using patterns to really stand out amongst the crowd. Plus, the eyesore colours will alert the group if Ian the accountant gets left behind.

3. Add a dare checklist

A stag do T-shirt should be more than just a symbol of your unity; it should bring out the innate competitiveness of the male species. If you are omitting a picture of the mother-in-law-to-be on the back (which, let’s face it, you probably should), a good alternative is to add a checklist of dares to be completed. As the group works through the weekend they can check off dares, such as downing three consecutive shots of Jäger, exchanging saliva with a brunette, and drinking a pint out of a stranger’s shoe.

4. Nicknames

Gentle ribbing is to be encouraged at all times, and nicknames are a good way of ensuring everyone gets their fair share of the banter. Perhaps go with a Muppets theme: single out Miss Piggy, Kermit and Gonzo, or alternatively follow the Harry Potter theme and label the nerdy Neville Longbottom. The possibilities are truly endless.
