    Picking Your Style

    Depending on where you go to school or what your preferences are, you may want a T-shirt or a sweatshirt with your letters on them.  Here’s one of our favorites: the crewneck sweatshirt.  It’s cozy and available in lots of colors (which means more options for letter colors!)

    A really great T-shirt is the American Apparel V-neck.  Also available in lots of colors, this shirt is soft and will be really great all year.  As well as wearing it in warm weather, you can layer it underneath a jacket when it gets cold and still show off your letters.

    We don’t know about you, but we love laying around in our sweats.  These sweatpants are perfect for that, and you can decorate them by putting your letters down the side! They have an elastic waist, open bottom, and cozy fleece on the inside.

    Our prices for the T-shirts and tank tops, with letters, range from $13 to $28.  Our sweatshirts range from $20 to $40.  Most items are on sale, so take a look for yourself!

    Picking A Color Combo

    The first part of picking your color combination is choosing what color item you want.  Our advice is to choose something that will go with many different colors, so you have a lot of options for letter colors!

    Then, you are able to choose premium fabric, or plain color letters.  The premium fabric has designs; the regular letters are solid colors.

    We just added some new premium fabrics, and we’re pretty crazy about them! Some of our favorites here at Greek U are Navy Roses, Red Daisies, Turquoise Chevron, and the Metallic colors!



    Just make sure the colors of your shirt and the fabric don’t clash! You can also choose an outline color to make your letters pop.

    Choose Your Sorority and Preview

    The final step is choosing your sorority from the drop-down menus, and then “previewing” your item.  

    Once you choose your style, colors and sorority, you will click the “Preview” button. You have to click this button before you can add to your cart, so that you can see what the finished product will look like.

    If you don’t like what you see the first time, don’t worry! You can repeat these steps until you find your perfect color combo.
    Simple as that! So go get yours! :)
