Comfort Colors for 2018

Happy 2018 from Comfort Colors. New pigments, new styles, and a new cuffed jogger that seems to be the “it” trend for the new year.

 

 

All of these new items can be found on page 22-23 of the new catalog.  At a nice medium weight of 7oz, the new French Terry crew neck sweatshirt with kangaroo pocket, the scuba neck hoodie, and the cuffed jogger pant will take you from cool spring weather right through Indian Summer.

If your brand reflects a vintage or beachy feel try experimenting with a one pass color or tone on tone color when screen printing. Want to incorporate the new jogger pants into the mix? Add your embroidered logo right below the pocket. Or run a word or tag line up one of the legs. Lots of fun options for you to ruminate on while we wait for spring.

New Blends for a New Year

New catalogs, new styles, and new blends! All of our vendors are rolling out the new stuff and over the next couple of weeks we will be highlighting these items. Well some of them anyway. There is way too many for us to show you all of them but we are updating the E-Catalogs section regularly so you can stay up to date with the latest offerings.

This is for those of you that love the wicking option but hate the feel of polyester. This tee is a blend of 75% poly/13% cotton/12% rayon and at 4.4 oz perfect for use as performance gear for your team or everyday wear for your crew that works outside during the warm months. On the plus side for us it is easy to screen print  and the posicharge technology helps lock in the ink color of the print so the tees look better longer.

District Made introduces their Astro Cosmic collection. It blends 60% cotton with 40% poly to make this lightweight 4.3 ounce tee soft and breathable. The intermixing of colors steps it up a notch to add depth to the overall look.

Port Authority is introducing their Coastal Cotton Blend polos. The new polos have a  soft, laid-back look that is designed to perform. This style fights odors, wicks moisture, and resists snags and wrinkles. At 5 ounces with a blend of 50% cotton/42.5%poly/7.5 linen it is the perfect polo for the office or job site.

Because the items are new they have not all been uploaded to our website. But as always if you see something you like send a message and we will get you the information or samples that you need.

Backpacks for Commuters

It is so much easier to work from home these days. Unless you run an embroidery shop then not so much…those machines are way to heavy to carry anywhere! But for a lot of folks bringing home the lap top is a way of life. As long as you have to (or want to) do it why not make a stylish statement with it.

Backpacks are a highly visible  way of getting your brand out there.  More important it is a product guaranteed to be used; not tucked away in some dark spot in the far corner of a desk collecting dust.

Besides being perfect for your employee’s everyday use  they also can be used to highlight employee achievements, work anniversaries, or used as an appreciation gift for your top clients. Going on a corporate outing, retreat, or trade show? The backpacks can be stuffed with other goodies and become  another  way to make your brand seen.

Click on any of the above photos to be take to our Next Event promotional website where you can find pricing and other color options.

Mineral Freeze by Sport-Tek

Sport-Tek just introduced a new line of digital printed gear call Mineral Freeze.

These items are perfect for sports team and spirit wear. Because of the very busy pattern we highly recommend a center chest sized logo in  either a one or two color design for heat transfer or screen print.

The tee’s are  100% polyester in a 3.8 oz weight so they are cool, light, and moisture wicking.

Check out the whole line of Mineral Freeze here.

Website Updates

All of this snow has to be good for something. For me it has allowed me some time to start some much needed updates to the website.

First you may have noticed a new layout and an addition of our promotional logo The Next Event. Remember we do more than just embroidery and screen printing. If you can put your name on it we can most likely get it for you.

Second we have added a new tab called E-Catalogs. These are digital catalogs  geared for more specific needs and enables you to focus in on what you are looking for. They also are available in print so stop by the shop if you want to grab a copy.

Third we have added another tab called Design Your Own Logo. This new tab will take you to a design website with hundreds of clip art options and ideas. A perfect choice when you have a limited design budget or are in need of a design turned around quickly. It is also just a great resource to let your creativity flow.

webpage2We will be continuing to add more resources to the website to make it easier to navigate and to help you quickly find what you are looking for.

If you have suggestions on improvements feel free to use the RED Contact Us button on the right side of the web page and leave us a message.

 

Show off your doodling

When I was in second grade I drew on my white Keds. My parents were none too happy about it. I don’t remember the punishment but I know I never drew on my sneakers again. But I remember vividly sitting on the floor of my bedroom with my blue ball point pen making random lines and swirls in the rubber and loving how the ink felt as I wrote my name on the toes of the shoes. At least I didn’t mark them right and left… I did that later to my poor sister.

This  photo from Highsnobiety brought back the memory of how much fun doodling is. And while I no longer doodle on my sneakers it’s nice to know that now it could be considered high art.

Have some great doodling you would like to immortalize? We can’t print on sneakers but we can transfer your art to tee’s, sweatshirts, towels, and bags. Got some ideas? Let us know….and we won’t tell Mom what you are up to.
