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.

Tacos and Tri Delta Flowy

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.

CPH Crest Dolman - Foil Trend

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!

Graduation is about possibilities. Whether its from high school or college, graduation means a fresh start. From the moment a student walks across the stage, they get a new beginning and a chance to build the life they choose. That’s a significant and powerful moment worth celebrating!

The question is, when your friend or loved one is stepping out into the world, what gift can you give that really celebrates this rite of passage? Sure, you could go with a gift card or cash, those things are always appreciated. But if there were ever a time to give a gift of significance, this would be it!

We may not be experts, but in our experience, you can’t go wrong if you ask yourself these three questions when shopping for a graduation gift.

DOES THIS SUIT THEIR STYLE?

The most important thing you need to think about is the person you’re buying for. This may sound elementary, but even when you’re out shopping for someone else, it can be really easy to pick up the items that you love. Make sure the gift reflects the taste and style of the graduate.

WILL THEY EVER USE THIS?

Graduating usually precedes a big move or lifestyle change, so consider what the graduate may need moving forward. Are they moving to a dorm room where they’ll need everything from decorations to basic sheets and towels? Are they starting their first big job out of college? Think about their upcoming needs and try to get them something they can use on a regular basis.

IS THIS GIFT PERSONAL OR MEANINGFUL?

The best graduation gifts reflect this moment in time. Graduation is both a beginning and an end (sort of), so you can go either way! You can give a gift that will make your graduate feel excited and inspired for the future, or you can opt for the gift that will take them down memory lane. Both are wonderful, you can’t go wrong. The most important thing you can do is make it personal. Choose a gift that you can customize and personalize.

We may not be experts, but we know how to customize and personalize just about anything. So while we can’t give you a “top ten things to buy a graduate” list, we can suggest a couple of things that are guaranteed to make any graduate feel special.

Canvas prints

The best thing about canvas is that it’s super versatile! You can print custom designs, quotes, artwork, photographs, and more. Canvas can be mounted, framed, or hung as-is and you’re not limited to standard sizes.

Not sure what design you want printed? We offer custom design services as well as canvas printing, so if you’re not an artist, we’ve got you covered. If you’re fresh out of design ideas, our favorite graduation gifts for 2017 are customized maps. You can choose the map you like, and add a quote or a name that fits your graduate! This gift is great for grads who are about to embark on their journey into the world. They can even check off the places they visit as they go! It’s a keepsake for life.

Embroidered gifts

Blanket Embroidered Letter

Custom name or monogram embroidery is another great way to create a personalized gift your grad will use and love. We find that the most loved embroidered gifts are the ones students can use at school! Personalized blankets are great for dorm life because they can’t get mixed up with a roommates. We also suggest towels, backpacks, and cozy bath robes.

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

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:
