Has anyone found a good site or shop to buy a customised T shirt/ top for my small 3 year old grandson. Alternatively somewhere I could buy iron on or sew on appliques with the number 3 and maybe his name or a fire engine which is favourite at present? I have trawled the internet without much luck

Or try 'Not on The High Street' or Etsy. I bought dgs a pinny with his name on from NOTHS - it wasn't expensive!

Studio (was Studio Cards at one time) used to do lots of personalised things, not looked at their site for ages but may be worth a peek.

You can buy special iron-on sheets which you can print yourself, which is what N&G obviously did.

I did exactly the same for my DGS for his second birthday - a football shirt in the German national colours with his name and age. It didn't really fit until he was 3, but never mind! Ordered it via Amazon.

Hope he has a lovely birthday!

I would Suggest Go for personalised T shirts, cards and many more. You can find it on amazon or fanjackets.

Frigid make beautiful personalised tops - DGS has a tractor top with his name on. Quite pricey but very good quality.

Hope he has a good day,

IMO never a good idea to put a child’s name on a T shirt.

Not on the High Street is a good site. They will personalise lots of things exactly as you want them

I remember when my sister paid a fortune for a tshirt for my newly born daughter with her name on. Back in the early 70s everyone was amazed at such a thing.
However, times have changed and It isn’t a good idea to have children’s names on tshirts . They will assume that they are safe with anyone who knows them by name.
