Embroidery:  Embroidery is another printing option that normally works well for polos and button down shirts. This type of printing is ideal for businesses who want to give their customers custom apparel that is a bit more business casual/professional. Embroidery is also one of our most durable forms of customization for apparel. Have you ever noticed your mechanics name on their uniform? That was likely embroidered because of the durability of the design.

Colors: Right now bold colors are definitely in, as are tones inspired by nature. Bold colors like teal, coral, cobalt, fuchsia, and golds are everywhere right now! And for a more toned down color coffee and caramel browns, off white, moss green, pale pink and grays are very trendy options.

Patterns and shapes: Chevron is definitely in style right now, but so are polka dots, arrows, stripes, floral designs (careful with this one though), lace, geometric designs and Aztec inspired looks.

Animals: No longer are just plain animal prints in style, instead prints of actual animals have taken their place. Especially elephants, owls, fox, whales, and cats.

Metallic and mattes:  While it may seem odd and like a contradiction, people are loving both shiny and flat matte surfaces. Glitter and rhinestones can add a feminine and flair to anything when done tastefully and can contrast beautifully to a matte look.

If it all just seems still too much, and you can’t quite pull the colors and designs together, just ask. Our in-house design team is always here to help!
