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.

In a business like ours, there’s never a dull moment and we like it that way. We love to help our clients showcase their organizations and businesses in creative ways. One of our favorite ways to do this is by combining our talents to make super cool stuff.

We realize a screen printing company with a wood shop might seem like an odd mix. In truth, when we first started out, we never expected to have an entire department dedicated to custom woodwork. Then one day a long time client, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, asked if we could create some restaurant furniture and the Cornerstone Impressions wood shop was born.

FTS Small Table

Today, we still produce the majority of Fuzzy’s restaurant furniture, and we’ve extended our services to other clients as well. Combining custom woodwork with graphic design and digital prints has allowed us to build some amazing branded products. Sturdy, beautiful and completely unique items like these:

Wood sign made for client Uptown Tavern.

Custom beer taps made for client Panther Island BrewingCustom beer taps made for client Panther Island Brewing.


Texas table, made to order. Simply contact us for pricing info.

Colored Resin Tables
Colored resin samples in yellow, blue and red.

Custom woodwork may not be typical of a screen printing company, but if you ask us, it’s an awesome way to BUILD new skills. Pun intended. 🙂

If you like these items from our wood shop, or have an idea for your own custom pieces, reach out to us! We are always excited to hear from you. To see more of our products and services, visit our website or check us out on social media:

When it comes to ordering custom products and apparel, you have a lot to consider. Factors like budget, product quality, product quantity and turnaround time are all a part of your decision making process; but what about design quality? How important is it to have a really nice design? In our opinion, it’s everything!

Great designs are a powerful thing. Consider this: when you see a really cool T-shirt, are you noticing the shirt itself or the design on the shirt? Chances are, it’s the design that makes a statement and catches your attention. Similarly, you’ve probably found yourself mesmerized by a poster at the doctor’s office or a great canvas print in the store. It’s not the poster or the canvas you’re looking at, it’s the design.

Around here, we know great designs make all the difference. That’s why our award winning graphic design team is at the heart of everything we produce. T-shirts, banners, decals, stickers, even our custom tables all start out in the art room. Our graphic design services don’t stop there, though. Aside from screen print and digital print design work, our artists can help you create the perfect image to reflect your business, brand or organization. Additional graphic design services:

brand identity
logo design/redesign
rebranding
garment design
hand drawn artwork
creative solutions

Custom Designs

Now that you’ve seen some of our designers’ work, consider your brand and marketing materials. Are the designs eye catching? Do they convey the message you want to send? If you’re not sure, give us a call and see what our graphic artists can create for you today. Rest assured, we’re here to make you look good.

Did you know the art of embroidery has been around for centuries? We like to think that’s because of it’s simple elegance. With embroidery, the smallest things can make a big impact. For example, what separates a basic collared shirt and a Ralph Lauren Polo? A little embroidered horse.

A few stitches are all it takes for the world to see and recognize a logo. So, when you’re looking for a way to show your brand to the world, why not choose what works? Custom embroidery is classic, elegant and makes a statement. All you have to do is select the items that work for you, and don’t worry, you have plenty of options.

Check out some of the ways you can utilize custom embroidery services:

Gifts

One of the easiest ways to turn a simple gift into a thoughtful gift is through embroidery. Personalize a simple scarf by adding your friend’s name or monogram.

Groups and OrganizationsCornerstoneImpressionsGreekJackets

Stitching your organization’s logo or name onto everyday apparel items such as jackets, hats and laptop bags is a classic way to showcase your organization on the go.

Businesses and Teams

Businesses, sports teams, and schools often wear polo style shirts with their logos embroidered. This is a perfect casual look that’s comfortable all day.

Personal Items and Decorations

Embroidery isn’t only for apparel, it can also be used to decorate. Show off your favorite quotes and designs in your home or at the office. For wall art, frame a piece of pretty fabric embroidered with your favorite quote, and hang it up. Pillow cases with embroidered designs make great accent pieces in the home. You could even give your favorite tote bag a personal touch by embroidering it with a cool design.

Hats

Hats are probably the most requested item in our embroidery department. Hats come in all different styles and colors and they’re perfect for representing your brands, organizations, teams, businesses, and anything else you can think of!

Now that you’ve seen some ways you can benefit from custom embroidery services, consider your own groups, organizations, businesses and friends! Which of the items above would you most like to see your brand featured on? The sky is the limit, so start brainstorming, and as always, if you have any questions about custom embroidery, we are happy to answer them. Simply, leave a comment below, shoot us an email or give us a call!
