5 Teacher Appreciation Shirt Ideas for Every Teacher’s Pet

by John Amato

Teachers are among the few whose job is almost entirely dedicated to bettering our lives. Their tireless hard work and commitment, sometimes in difficult circumstances, is commendable. As such, recognizing their efforts should be something we all strive to do.

While a verbal “thank you” or a handwritten note might get the job done, your teacher will appreciate something more thoughtful.

But what exactly might such a gift from your teacher's favorite student look like?

Well, as much as they say gift giving is an art, there is a method you can follow—you see, the best gifts are usually:

  • Thoughtful
  • Meaningful
  • Unique 

Finding this balance of qualities in a gift isn’t always easy. Thankfully, at Jupmode, we’ve applied these principles, and our expertise on the subject, to compile this list of teacher appreciation day shirts and ideas to inspire you.

1 - Teachers Are Strong Shirt

Additionally, we use an ultra-soft tri-blend heather fabric for the shirts to ensure the best quality. That way, your teacher will have whatever message of appreciation you print on the shirt for years to come. 

Here are a few of our top designs to help inspire your custom teacher appreciation shirts.

A shirt with a custom picture might be the perfect design for a teacher appreciation shirt. 

The image you choose can be anything from a picture you took with your favorite teacher on a field trip to a funny image that’ll bring your teacher a smile, like an inside joke.

And with Jupmode’s custom shirts, you won't have to worry about quality. We use cutting-edge heat transfer and screen printing technology to ensure a durable custom design with a great hand feel.

This means you won’t have to worry about the design fading or deteriorating after just one wash. Your teacher will have this token of remembrance for years to come.

This is yet another great shirt idea to show appreciation for your teacher by acknowledging their unwavering resilience.

Through the highs and lows, and those times when a concept or topic just wouldn’t land, your teachers remained steadfast in their support, and this t-shirt celebrates exactly that.

It also acknowledges that despite the many anxieties and uncertainties in and out of the classroom, they counseled and educated, and for that, youare grateful.

Just like the Teachers Are Strong shirt, this Through It All, I Educated Shirt is also printed on an ultra-soft, tri-blend heather shirt with a fitted design that’s sure to make it a favorite.

4 - Knee High by The 4th of July Shirt

Knee High by the 4th of July shirt by Jupmode

Although the phrase “knee high by the 4th of July” originated from corn farmers as a measure of the success of their crops, it has now become more widely associated with the joys of summer. 

The phrase is reminiscent of the hard work put in through the year, the success of which becomes evident and is celebrated in the summer. 

Given this notion, the Knee High by the 4th of July shirt can be used somewhat abstractly to show appreciation for your teacher's hard work throughout the school year. 

It’s also a subtle invitation for them to take stock of and appreciate their achievements over the school year and celebrate their success.
