Being tasked with ordering custom t-shirts for your company, club, or group can be...well, a lot. It can be an especially frustrating process if you're not working with the right vendor (or if you're not consulting our Custom T-Shirt Buyer's Guide)—but even if you are working with a good one (*wink wink* like us *wink wink*), all of the internal tasks like getting approval on your swag budget or getting the right design from your design team can be a major pain.
But there's perhaps no task more annoying or tedious than trying to track down everyone's t-shirt size. There is, however, a tool that will make your life a lot easier when ordering custom t-shirts for your group: a t-shirt order form template.
Having a clear, easy-to-use t-shirt order form template will make the gathering and organizing of your group's t-shirt sizes infinitely easier, all while not holding up the order process while waiting for sizes to come in. That said, we've gone ahead and put together a t-shirt order form template for you, available for free download.
What to Include in Your T-Shirt Order Form Template
When making a document that you know will get in front of a lot of people, it's best to make it as clear and easy-to-use as possible, so you'll want to make sure you only leave room for the information that's absolutely essential. This means, you should make sure to include space for:
- First and Last Name: arguably the most important detail
- T-Shirt Size: yeah, it's why we're doing this whole thing
- Color: incase you have multiple color options
- Mailing Address: incase you'll be shipping these t-shirts to your group directly rather than handing them out
If you don't need to know their preferred color or mailing address, then feel free to remove those columns from your Google Sheets t-shirt order form. And if you're collecting sizes in person and don't know those options, your best option will likely be to put a line down those columns so people know not to fill them in.
Google Sheets T-Shirt Order Form Template
If you're collecting t-shirt information from coworkers, a Google Sheet will probably be the easiest way to do it, as they're easy to send out to a large group and have every one fill out. We've created an example that you can easily replicate for your own needs.
One small thing to note here: in this example, we've included a column for T-Shirt Color that functions as a drop-down to choose from. You may not need that column if you're not offering multiple color options. But if you want to let people choose, you'll need to add the color options you're offering.
To do that, you'll want to click Data > Data Validation.
From there, you'll want to type the different colors with a comma in between and no spaces, just like you see below with the colors black, white, and grey.
Printable T-Shirt Order Form
Now, if you're a fan of getting things down on paper, that's fine — we have you covered as well. We've also put together a downloadable PDF template that you can print off and collect t-shirt sizes one person at a time.
Note: If you're collecting sizes in person and don't know those options, your best option will likely be to put a line down those columns so people know not to fill them in.
What information is needed to order my custom t-shirts?
Once you've collected the sizes, colors, or any other relevant information from your group before ordering, you'll be ready to order your t-shirts! But, what other information is needed? It's not difficult, but you'll want to have this information ready to keep your order cruising:
- Garment style
- Size breakdown (how many garments of each size)
- Your design
- Any add-on services (printed tags, hem tags, etc)
- Shipping Address*
*A note on the shipping address: if you're shipping your entire order to one place, then you'll only need one address. However, if your team works remotely or you're sending shirts to customers in their homes, you can provide a list of addresses, and Real Thread will ship them to each one individually. In that case, sending the sheet you used to collect this information will do the trick.
