girls' camp t-shirts and fiverr


I am our ward's girls' camp director. That means that I have to come up with a slogan and a skit and cheers and make decorations and cook breakfast and gather all of the supplies our girls' will need at camp this summer. (Luckily I have lots of talented women to help me do these things.) One of the major things we need is a t-shirt. I really want the shirt to be something that the girls will wear again. After lots of tossing and turning over it, I was inspired with a simple idea and took it to fiverr.com.

I had never heard of fiverr, but Mike steered me there when I was searching for a font that would give a hand-lettered look to our slogan. Fiverr is a marketplace where you can hire a "gig" for $5. It seems like you can find just about anything (things like logo design, translation and writing, even jingles and sound effects!). After a quick search for hand-drawn brush pen lettering, I found Kim. Five days and five dollars later, I had the perfect hand brushed design for our shirts. Sometimes the internet is the best.

And these shirts are making me super excited about camp, which is something I am surprised to hear myself say.

  1. Hi, Stephanie! I haven't written to you in a while, but I never miss one of your blog posts! When I saw this one I just had to comment. I absolutely love the shirt you have had made for the girls' camp! If you have extras will you have them for sale? I have a 12-year old niece and it is so important that girls on the cusp of being teens understand real beauty. Good job!
