In the decorated apparel industry, creating wearable art is our passion. We love to experiment with new colors and designs to create an image as unique as the client behind it. Just like the designers at fashion week, we pay attention to new patterns, colors and style trends.

Season after season, we look to Pantone Fashion Color Report for a glimpse into the colors of next season. The report is published by Pantone for the fashion industry twice a year, and features a comprehensive overview of fashion designers’ use of colors in their upcoming collections.

Today we’ve matched up each of Pantone’s top 10 colors for spring with some of our favorite shirts and sweatshirts for screen printing. When you’re looking for the best shirts for your events this spring, let this be your guide!

Pantone’s Top 10
Rose Quartz

American Apparel’s fine jersey short sleeve tee in ash grey apricot is a perfect match for Pantone’s Rose Quartz, 2016’s most popular color.


Peach Echo

This Comfort Colors pocket tee is a great match for Pantone’s peach echo. This color is bold, bright, and suits both men and women.


serenity

Serenity is a fitting name for this color blue, and we think this Comfort Colors sweatshirt is perfect for a serene afternoon on the couch.


SNORKEL BLUE

A deep blue like this one definitely reminds us of the ocean. Unfortunately, the weather does not. Until then, we’ll settle for this cozy zip-up sweatshirt by Alternative Apparel.


BUTTERCUP

We can’t help but feel the sunshine when we look at Pantone’s buttercup. This Champion sweatshirt in bright yellow is perfect for a spring mood in winter weather.


LIMPET SHELL

Limpet Shell is a twist on the traditional mint green we’ve seen the last few years. The blue hue is very calming, and LAT Apparel appropriately named this t-shirt color “chill.”


LILAC GRAY

Comfort Colors’ “wisteria” is a close match to Pantone’s lilac gray. We expect to see quite a bit of this gender neutral color this spring.


FIESTA

Fiesta is a fierce red/orange that we can’t live without, and this American Apparel tee makes a statement without sacrificing comfort.


ICED COFFEE

This soft neutral is a must-have in every closet, and Comfort Colors’ zip-up sweatshirt is a cozy option we love!


GREEN FLASH

Last but certainly not least, this bright green is exactly what we love about spring. Try it on with this Hanes long sleeve tee in lime.


Now that you’ve seen the top 10 colors for spring 2016, we want to know which is your favorite! Let us know by commenting below, and don’t forget to follow us here at Just Inkin’ Around and check us out on social media.

If you’re in the screen printing industry, you know it takes a village to create a gorgeous print. From the graphic designer to the screen printers, everyone plays a part in turning a great idea into a beautiful garment. We decided to see how our work compares to others in our industry, so we entered the 2015 Impressions Awards.

The Impressions Awards are our industry’s most prestigious apparel decorating competition. For months, decorators of all levels submit their entries to be judged by a panel. Winners were recently announced at ISS Fort Worth, and we’re proud to say that Cornerstone Impressions was the recipient of this year’s People’s Choice Award. This award goes to the design which was voted best by ISS show attendees.

The ‘Miss Texas Prison Rodeo’ shirt was designed by Pecos McCool for Lazy J Ranch Wear.

This shirt, along with the rest of the Impressions Award winners, will be displayed at every ISS show next year and featured in the January issue of Impressions Magazine.

This year’s People’s Choice Award is the second Impressions Award for Pecos McCool and Cornerstone Impressions. We know we’re lucky to have such amazing artists and screen printers on our team. Without the great work they do and the clients they do it for, we’d be lost! Congratulations, Pecos! We love the work you do every day, and we are thrilled the rest of the world can enjoy it as well!

Okay, we admit it. We are confusing. Cornerstone Impressions is a multifaceted company and we make a whole lot of stuff.  Sometimes it’s hard for clients to understand everything each department produces.  We can fix that!

Let’s begin with digital printing. Digital printing is mysterious simply because the term ‘digital printing’ is vague. Today, we’re going to cut through the confusion and answer two simple questions: “What exactly is digital printing?” and “How can digital printing services benefit me?”

What exactly is digital printing?

Digital printing refers to taking an image from your device or computer and printing that image on a product of your choosing. To put it simply, digital printing is similar to what your printer at home does, except fancier and on a larger scale.

Digital printing is a cost effective way to create print marketing and advertising materials such as business cards, banners, decals and more. The process also allows for faster turnaround times than other printing options, which means you get your products quickly.

How can digital printing services benefit me?

We’re so glad you asked! Draw attention to your location with large outdoor signs, showcase your brand with colorful brochures, or decorate your business with beautiful posters and canvas prints. As digital printers, we can help you showcase your brand in the best possible way.

Simply send us an image or work with our in-house graphic design team to create one, and we’ll print it on almost anything! Although we would love to list every printed item we offer, they simply wouldn’t all fit in a blog post.

To give you an idea of what digital printing services can do for you, these are some of our frequently ordered products:

Now that you’ve gotten a glimpse of what we can make with a digital printer, get creative! Think about your brand and which products will increase your exposure the most. You’ve got plenty of options, so what will you print your logo on next?
