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.

Gildan Hammer

Hanes has long been know for its heavy weight 6 oz Beefy-T. If you liked 100% cotton at the heaviest weight, you were a fan of this for life. Gildan is now introducing their version of the Beefy-T called the Hammer.

I am going to assume you at least glanced at the text in the photo above so I won’t repeat. Bottom line is the tee shirt is soft, comes in a long sleeve and with a pocket, and has 30 colors to choose from.

Current trends are toward a lighter weight tee but if you are a die hard fan of the heavy weight tee you should  stop by and check out The Hammer. Gildan was kind enough to send us a sample. By the way did I mention it was SOFT?

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.
