Listen, boys. Pick-up artistry is a tricky craft, and you know it. There’s a fine line between lame and downright inappropriate attempts, but when done right, the pick-up line can really deliver. So the DIYers of Bro + Co are going to help you out with some quality zingers and a fresh way to deliver them — printables! Instead of catcalling (ew, catcalling) or the classic, “do you, um come here often?” how about wearing these pick-up lines on your bro tank, man tote or tee? Simply download our five punny pick-up line printables, iron ’em onto your favorite garments and be on your charming way!
TBH, it was hard to narrow down to just five pick-up lines. So we’ll generously share our five runner-ups — just so, you know, you have more material to work with ;)
- “Are you a magician? Because abra-ca-DAYUMN!”
- “Are you friends with Harry Potter? Because you’re a-Gryffindor-able.”
- “You must be the square root of two, ’cause I feel irrational around you.”
- “If I were to ask you out on a date, would your answer be the same as the answer to this question?”
- “Are you my appendix? Because I have a funny feeling in my stomach that makes me feel like I should take you out.”
Also note this v. important advice from a dating veteran. Keep these in mind when picking us up:
- Avoid any lines having to do with your pants, please.
- If it can be said in a Disney Channel Original Movie, it’ll probably fly without offending us.
- Ask yourself: Are you comfortable saying this line with your mother in the room? Yeah.
Alright, let’s get to it!
— t-shirt, man tote, bro tank, boxers, briefs, socks, hat, etc.
– our downloadable printables! (depending on the transfer paper, you may need mirror images – download those here)
– fabric transfer paper
– tissue paper (it usually comes with the fabric transfer paper)
1. Print your favorite pick-up line onto fabric transfer paper, then cut around the shape. Leave at least 1/4 inch around the edge of the design.
2. Carefully peel the backing off your transfer paper.
3. Affix the design to your garment, then cover with a piece of tissue paper (it should be included with the transfer paper). Following the transfer paper’s instructions, iron on the design. Let cool, then remove the tissue paper.
Bro Tip: Make sure your iron has no steam in it — water doesn’t mesh well with the transfer paper.

Hey, That Ain’t No Beer Belly
The honeys will come-a-crawlin’ with this printable.
See?! This guy’s already MARRIED. We’re pretty sure he credits the tee for landing him his hottie.
I Hope You Never Lego of Me
Never head to the farmers’ market without this tote — it’s a babe magnet, trust us.
Take a Note from RyGos
That’s right. One. Hundred. Percent.
This ‘fit says, “What’s cookin, good lookin’? Oh, that’s right — ME.”
Not ready for the bro tank or boxers? Print your line on a business card, write your number on the back and slip it to that smokehouse sitting at the bar. That was SO SMOOTH. You’re welcome.
