Top 16 2021 Most Popular Senior Shirt Design Ideas
Let’s hope that our upcoming 2021 senior class will be able to experience a better year end than last year’s senior class. It looks like the nation is back on track to return to school in Fall, albeit in a very different way. It looks like most schools are going to a mixed online and in-person class schedule. On top of that, it is a time of great social upheaval with the Black Lives Matter movement and an election coming up. Many of our graduating seniors are looking forward to participating in their first election. Everything is changing for these kids, so even a bit of normalcy would go a long way for them. Something that never gets old?
Senior shirts! Every graduating class needs a unique and memorable t-shirt slogan or logo design to remember their last year of schooling and the class of 2021 is no different. Here are the 16 Best Senior Class Shirt Ideas for 2021!
16. Senior Class Flames
It is lit, it is fire! (Kids are still saying that, right? No? Okay…) Looking for something a bit simpler for your graduating class? This basic, but cool, skateboard flame t shirt design is perfect for students that just want something small, but still want to display their fiery passion for life and learning.
15. Step Aside While We Rock the Scene
The coat of arms is a design that has stood the test of time. This take on a classic, timeless design will show that your students not only hold on to tradition, but they look for ways to make it their own! This 2021 class logo also invokes classic rockers from the 70s like Queen. Is your class full of rock stars? This t shirt is perfect for you!
14. The Times We Shared Will Live Forever
Do you have a very patriotic school? Is your mascot something powerful? This design highlights the American flag’s colors with your school’s mascot looming powerfully in the background. The quote on the shirt is great to remind your seniors that they will not be forgotten and they should not forget you either.
13. Forget the Rest. Class of 2021 is the Best!
Every Senior class thinks they are a cut above everyone else. Who is to tell them different? This sassy Senior t-shirt design is sure to make an impact. With a cool background design and a font that pops, you definitely will not think twice about deciding who’s the best!
12. The Only Class that Counts
Are your students more refined than sassy? Is class important to this class? If your class is more James Bond than Austin Powers, try out this slick design. Soft, muted colors and a no nonsense font will show your students how cool you think they are. Plus, it is another classic design that is timeless in its own right.
11. It's Been Fun, But I'm Glad I'm Done
Bye, Felicia! (Wait, no one has said that in HOW long?) Some Seniors will not look back after walking out of school on their last day (although it is definitely not the case at your school). That being said, this fun slogan definitely encapsulates Gen Zs attitude: fun, sassy, and a bit of an edge to it. They are ready to move on to the next stage in their life and nothing is going to stop them!
10. It Ain't No Fun Unless It's the Class of 2021
Ain’t no party like a 2021 party, cuz a 2021 party don’t stop! (Wait, that phrase has not been relevant in HOW MANY YEARS?) Most outgoing Seniors will relate to this shirt. Gen Z tends to be the life of the party and is there a better way of showing that than this slogan? The design of this shirt also can pack a lot of words into a small space without it seeming crowded. It is a winner all around!
9. 70s Retro Status
It is time for a tour of the decades! First up, the 1970s. The 70s was a time of social change and upheaval, much like what the world is seeing today. Senior shirts that invoke that time period may spur some of the younger generation into action! Plus, it just looks cool (this is the more likely reason to pick this logo). The font speaks to a time of VW Buses and long hair. The style encapsulates the decade to a tee.
8. Totally 80s
Next on the tour, it is time for parachute pants, crazy hair, and the rise of hip-hop. It is the 1980s! And this design is probably more for the teachers than the seniors! Many teachers today were born in the 1980s and will appreciate this colorful design. Celebrate the 80s and show it off in style.
7. Saved By Seniors
The final stop on this tour of decades is the 1990s. It’s alright, because you’re saved by the seniors. Few designs can accurately capture the aesthetic of the 90s and this shirt just nails it. The 90s saw an economic recovery, the start of the Millennial generation, and some really cheesy commercials. This logo can really bring back memories of a better time. For teachers at least.
6. Retro Quality Logo
*Shaft theme song plays softly in the background* What’s the coolest design scheme for a tshirt? *RETRO* Can you dig it? Another really cool retro design for your students. This style is making a comeback so you can be on the cutting edge with this logo.
There have not been many designs that capitalized on the fact that the “21” looks like “ZI”. This logo not only looks amazing, but it features wordplay that is also amazing! Tell your students how you feel about them with this baseball shirt inspired design.
4. Seniors Retro Style
The last retro design on this list is the best. It is simple and it pops. Literally! Of course the colors are customizable, but to really give it that vintage, retro feel, these colors just make you feel the shag carpeting beneath your toes and see the wood paneling on the walls. It is a great fundraiser design when trying to appeal to grandparents.
3. It Took 2,021 Years to Get a Class This Great
The math may not check out on this t-shirt design, but what a great slogan. The bar has finally been set for greatness at your school, thanks to the class of 2021. This is another design that has a funny, sassy slogan and a design that fits perfectly without bunching it up or looking crowded. Hopefully, your school will not have to wait another two decades for a class as good as 2021.
2. Some Have a Story. We Made History
This shirt is perfect for 2021. It will be a historic year for many reasons. It is after an election year, it is the first class to experience school after COVID-19, and there will be many more things that happen in the next year that will be historic. During this time of economic and social change, it is so important to make sure that your students understand just how special the class of 2021 will be!
1. I'm Like 2021 (percent) Done!
This slogan is an encapsulation of the class of 2021. Not only did they have almost a half year away from school while the world adjusted, they also have to readjust to the changes that will be coming in the next year. That’s enough to drive an adult crazy! It is almost a guarantee that your students will be 2021% done with the school year by next June. This is another really fun design that takes Gen Zs brand of humor and puts it into a catchy slogan.
Of course, these designs are just a sampling of the designs that are offered here. All of the designs are customizable and can be edited to fit your school’s needs! A senior class t-shirt is a great way to bring about unity within your class. It also looks great for a photo shoot! The Senior class shirts of 2021 need to be something that sets them apart from the previous years. It is a time of change and your students represent that the best. They come from all backgrounds, creeds, colors, heritage, but they all share one thing in common: They are your students. Although they may be different from years before, the kids are alright.
