There is no better feeling than having sorority recruitment over with.
Getting settled into your new chapter with your new sisters is fun, but the next best feeling is finally getting to wear your letters in the public. Every sorority sister should be proud of her chapter, and there is no better way than to sport your chapter’s letters on campus.
Wondering where to order sorority apparel, jewelry, knick-knacks and more? Look no further. Here are the top five websites to find and order just what you are looking for.
If you’re looking to purchase a piece of clothing with your letters, Greek Gear is the place. This website is really easy to navigate and they offer T-shirts, hooded sweatshirts, tank tops, non-hooded sweatshirts and other products with your letters sewn on. You can pick from numerous color combinations to find the one you like best.
When I joined my chapter last year, the first thing that my mom got me was a silver necklace sporting my letters. The best place to order Greek jewelry is from Greek U. This website has everything from necklaces, rings, bracelets, key chains and more. Everything is offered in different materials so you can spend the amount of money that you want without breaking the bank.
If you’re moving into a new apartment or just want a few decorative ways to show your letters around your dorm room, sorority house or apartment, the best place to find decorative things is from Greek Creations. For bid day, my sorority always orders water bottles, mugs, picture frames, pads of paper and more from this website. Here’s a cute tumbler that I found while browsing.
If you’re looking for a website that has pre-made everything in your chapter’s unique colors, then Something Greek is the place to shop. This website literally has anything that one could wish to order in nicely put-together packages. Each item will have your chapter’s unique sorority colors in the item somewhere.
If you want to make customized clothing for an upcoming event, the best website to customize clothing is Custom Ink. This website offers hundreds of designs that other chapters have used for fun events like barn dances, bid days and philanthropies. You can see cool ideas other sororities have used when planning your apparel. A cute design that I found for my chapter is here, and there are hundreds more for every chapter.
