The Unofficial Start of Summer

And just like that Summer is underway. For a lot of folks that means shorter work days, casual Friday attire all week, and office picnics. Bring on the pigment dyed tees to lend  that perfect Summer vibe to anything you are up to this season.

Hanes has gotten into the pigment dyed game with their brand new line called Comfort Wash.

Port & Company has a great line of pigment dyed tee shirts and  every year they add to their color options giving you a lot of choices.

Then there is the tried and true original Comfort Colors. A slightly higher price point but the quality can’t be beat.

Between these brands you won’t have any trouble finding just the right color, style, or feel to make your next event into a wonder Summer memory.

Hanes X-Temp



We have been selling the Hanes X-Temp for a little over a year now and have had some great response from our customers.

Everyone from landscapers, to contractors, to heating/oil repairmen have said how much they like the weight of these tee’s. They are easy to print on  and embroider so we like that!

If you have been thinking about a lighter weight tee for your crew for the summer these may be just the thing.

CamoHex: A Updated Camo Look

Sport Tek is introducing a new kind of pattern for their performance tees, sweatshirts and hats. It is a new twist on an old classic. The CamoHex is a  sublimated digital camo that uses small hexagons in a tonal pattern.  We gotta admit it is pretty cool.

The tee’s are 3.8 oz of 100% Polyester, go from XS-4XL and come in youth sizes. But the real question is how well do the work when you print something on them?

I used Sisser Cad-Cut Fashion film and did a small front logo and large back image on the ladies tee. (And yes I did that on purpose as I intend to wear it later….) The pattern shows through the orange film a bit but personally I liked the effect. It makes it look like it is more apart of the shirt and not sitting on top of it. The film went on very easy and looks quite good after a washing.

These shirts are perfect for your team, gym, or corporate team building, come in some cool colors, and have other matching items so you can make a complete outfit if you so desire.

Let us know what you think! Here is the CamoHex link  on our website where you can find them and the color options.

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.


9 Days until…….. V DAY!

You have nine days until Valentines day. But no need to panic. Look around you for inspiration to make this year different and special.

I found this post on our Blog Lovin feed from enJOY it. Click on the photo to go the original article.


I of course translated it into a few quick tee shirt ideas.

Heart Tees

Our model Mitzi in red is wearing a Hanes v-neck with a heart I grabbed from free clip art. Eleanor is wearing a a crew neck Gildan tee with a design I made up in Corel Draw. (Yes those hearts are orange…think out side the box…hearts come in all colors!)

Quick, simple, and a gift that keeps on giving. Remember it doesn’t have to be over the top to make a lasting and loving impression. Or it can be a great addition to an over the top gift if you are so inclined.

Look around, get inspried, and Happy Valentine’s Day!

PS: Words on a tee make and easy and quick gift. I had several picked out to do for this post but…I ran out of time…After all customers work comes first!
