Family Reunion T-shirts and Banners plus family reunion planning tips

Family Reunion T-shirtsFamily Reunion T-shirts and Banners are just a few of the things you will probably need for a successful family reunion event.  SkylinePrints.com has worked with many families over the years and based on those experiences, we have learned a few tips that we thought we would pass along.

Prepare and Plan

The most successful family reunions we have worked with had people who excelled in planning and organization.  There are many details involved in putting on a successful family reunion and for someone who has never done it before, it can be quite overwhelming.

Create a Team

Typically, there are far too many details for any one person to handle alone.  We recommend recruiting some family members to help you organize and carry out the list of tasks that will be required.  If you start out far enough in advance, you could meet monthly to discuss ideas and what is going to be needed.  Probably as the event approaches, meeting more frequently will be needed.

Create a Checklist

The use of a checklist cannot be stressed enough.  There are many details to be tracked and performed.  Every one of these items from the smallest to the most complex need to be on your list to ensure it is completed.  We recommend keeping this checklist with you at all times so you can jot down updates or new tasks.  You’d be surprised when you find yourself thinking about a task or getting a creative idea that you need to remember to discuss later with your team.
