Say It With a T

People love to express themselves through their clothes, so why not share the No Limits message through your clothes too. Get some T-shirts, markers, iron-on transfers, paint, and creativity together and let people make their own one-of-a-kind anti-tobacco T-shirt.


First Meeting:
This activity should take one planning meeting to determine how to set up the booth, what supplies are needed, and which statistics or facts to have people to include on their T-shirts.

Second Meeting:
Implement your plan.


  • Set a budget. You can either buy packages of shirts or have people bring their own.
  • Determine how many people are going to be creating T-shirts. (Depending on your budget, you can have them bring their own or see if you can get some shirts donated.)
  • Plan for some time to explain who Big Tobacco is and why you’re concerned about their actions.
  • Have three facts that you want everyone to leave with.  That way they can tell other people about Big Tobacco and why they’re getting involved.
  • Let your local media and No Limits know about your event ahead of time.

Words of Wisdom:

  • Have some ideas (slogans, pictures, quotes, or facts available) for people to look at.
  • Use a well-ventilated area.
  • Place cardboard in the T-shirts so that markers don’t bleed through both layers.
  • If you want to try something a little different, try a bleach pen on a dark shirt or try using T-shirt dye, spray bottles, and a stencil.
