If you’re a sorority girl, you know that recruitment is basically Christmas. In the weeks leading up to bid day you’re super busy and perpetually stressed out, but its all worth it when you get to hand your perfect new members their first shirt (but certainly not their last) with your letters on it.

Lucky for your new members, sorority shirts are going through a major upgrade! We’re seeing some adorable new trends pop up in the sorority apparel world, and we’ve put together a few of our favorites just in time for the 2017-2018 school year.

Flowy styles

Sororities and fraternities have stuck to classic unisex tees and v-necks for years, but there’s a new trend on the block in 2017. This year its all about flowy styles that flatter all body types and add a feminine flair.

ZTA Letters Flowy Style

Foil Prints

Foil prints are a super cute way to add a little shine to your shirt without going over the top. We make them by screen printing an adhesive to the shirts then heat pressing them with a colored foil. Gold and silver are our most popular foil colors, but we do offer plenty of other color options to fit your style.

Tri Delta Gold Foil - Foil trend

Wreaths

Because nothing says Greek Goddess like a pretty wreath! This trend is cool because there are a ton of different wreaths to choose from, so you never have to worry about another chapter having the same look. Try a foil printed wreath to add a little wow factor!

If you’ve been paying any attention to the news this year, you probably know that the upcoming election is creating even more buzz than usual.

When you’re in high school, class T-shirts represent a year in your life and your place in the school. After graduation, class shirts become keepsakes. When we see them years after high school has passed, we are reminded of the time we spent with our peers and the fun we had together.

As screen printers, we see plenty of class shirts. Some are funny, some are sassy, and some are serious. While it’s never easy to choose the perfect phrase to mark a moment in time, we’ve seen some pretty great ones! Today we’re sharing our top picks for the 2016-2017 school year.

Last week, we posted about what’s trending in the world of printed tees. Because we are a screen printing company, its no surprise we see design trends come and go each year. This season, we’re seeing more variety in shirt styles than ever before.

This summer T-shirts are versatile and trendy. More and more of our clients have started to veer away from plain T-shirts and have begun to gravitate toward new fabrics, colors, and cuts. So today we’re sharing some of the most popular shirt styles of the season.

One thing’s for sure. Throwback styles are everywhere. We’re seeing 50’s oversized shirts tucked in, 70’s color pops and 90’s relaxed fits and grunge themes. Crop tops, loose fitting tees and slouchy styles are all the rage. Shirts which can easily transition from day to night and accessorized for any occasion. For example, a slouchy tank goes perfect with shorts during the day, and all you have to do before dinner is knot the tank and swap your shorts out for a maxi skirt!

Foil printed tees are another trend to look out for this summer. This style is popping up here and there, and we’re thinking the look will catch on quickly. The shiny bright colors add flash to cheeky phrases and brand names.

For those of you who enjoy throwback styles, you’ll love this next one. Ringer tees are back in a big way, and they still look as cool as they did when your camp counselor wore them.

For men, a classic tee with a washed vintage look is a great casual look for daytime.

Ordering T-shirts can be a hassle. It starts out simple enough, you’re in a meeting and someone decides it would be fun to make T-shirts for your organization or maybe an upcoming event. Everyone thinks it sounds like a great plan until you all start trying to create a design. If nobody in the group is an artist, how do you make a T-shirt design that doesn’t look like a 6-year-old drew it?

You can go online to a website and create a T-shirt, but then you’re limited to a few clip art options and approximately 12 font choices. You can create the shirt in a word document (bad idea), but then you have no clue how to size it correctly for a T-shirt or how it will look when it’s printed out.

We hear our clients talk about this problem over and over again, and we know it’s no fun! The good news is that artwork for T-shirts does not have to be stressful for you. Simply choose a screen printer with in-house designers. At Cornerstone, we are so lucky to have some amazing designers on our team. They take drawings, ideas and words and turn them into beautiful artwork for print.

Next time you decide you want to make custom T-shirts for an event, all you have to do is let us know. We can brainstorm ideas with you, take any instructions you have for us and create a custom design you’ll love. Check out a few custom designs created by our artists below:

Some of these designs you see above were nothing more than a general idea when they first came to us. The beauty of having in-house graphic designers is that it saves you time, effort and a lot of group discussions over T-shirt designs.

When you’re ready to make tees for your next event, please don’t stress about the design! Let our artists handle everything for you. If you don’t like the design at first, no problem, we’ll make it again. To see more from our designers, follow us here at Just Inkin’ Around and check us out on social media!

Printed T-shirts are one of the few fashion trends that never go out of style. Custom shirts can make a statement, create awareness, and even unify a group of complete strangers. Over the years, we’ve printed T-shirts for every occasion imaginable and we’ve seen some really awesome ways to incorporate them into events. Today, we’re sharing 5 times for custom tees.

RETREATS

Whether you love them or hate them, most people have attended a retreat at least once. Some love the chance to get out of the office/classroom for a day while others would rather be working than socializing. We know that not everybody loves to bond over team-building exercises, but we also know this; nobody ever complains about the chance to wear a comfy T-shirt. Group retreat shirts serve as positive reminders of the team-building spirit long after the retreat is over. They’re also great advertising for your business or organization.

SHIRTS FOR A CAUSE

Shirts for a cause are some of our favorites to print. Whether your goal is to create awareness, support an organization, or raise funds, we’ve got you covered. Design your own shirts or ask us to create a design for you, we’re always happy to help!

SCHOOL GROUPS

Whenever you’re traveling with a group of students to competitions, games, trips, etc. it can be hard to stick together. Any teacher who has ever taken a class trip can tell you it’s a stressful experience for those in charge. One way to make this easier is with matching T-shirts.

When students are wearing group T-shirts, parents and teachers can easily spot them in a crowd and monitor them more effectively. This creates a safer environment for the students and peace of mind for those in charge of them. We suggest choosing a bold, solid colored shirt such as red, yellow, blue or green. These are easy to spot from a distance.

WEDDINGS

Weddings are all about making memories to last a lifetime and so are T-shirts! Bachelor and bachelorette parties are great events to make T-shirts for. Of course you can’t forget T-shirts for the bridesmaids to wear while they get ready! Create your own design or have us make one for you, either way, you can’t go shirtless to your wedding. 🙂

FAMILY REUNIONS

Family reunions are one of our favorite times for custom tees! Whether your reunion is big or small, shirts are a fun way to commemorate the day. Not to mention they can be seriously helpful when you’re trying to identify who amongst the crowd you’re actually related to, and who is simply a random person enjoying an afternoon in the park.

Other fun suggestions are to make “team” shirts for each branch of the family, print a funny picture of your family’s matriarch/patriarch, or use different color shirts for each branch of the family like our clients here:
