This year Cornerstone Impressions is turning 15 years old, so our business is a moody teenager. Just kidding, as we turn 15, we are humbled and excited to be where we are today. We are proud of the hard work it took to get here and we are thankful for continued growth year after year. Its crazy to think what started out as a man with a dream and a box of awards has grown into a team of more than 20 people working across six departments, all with the same goal; to make our clients look good.

Some say as you progress in business and life you should always keep your eyes forward. They  say not to look back because you’re not going that way. Occasionally though, its important to turn around and reflect on where you started. After all, if you never look back, you can never truly appreciate how far you’ve come.

Our story began in 2002 when Bill Cartmill decided it was time to take a leap of faith…

Here’s hoping our next 15 years are half as wonderful as the first. 🙂

No matter your age, joining a local sports team is always a good idea. There’s just something FUN about getting together with your friends and trying to beat the heck out of some other people and their friends.

Whether you take the sport and competition very seriously or you’re in it for the beverages on the sidelines, you need something to get the team spirit going. Can you guess what we’re going to suggest here?

Custom jerseys are not only necessary for deciphering who’s who on the field, they can be a really funny way to show your team’s personality. Not sure what style you’re looking for? Trust us, we have options for every dedication level.

If you’re serious about your sport and want to dress for performance, we have great dry fit options in many of the same styles as Nike, Under Armour, or other popular brands you would find in a sporting goods store. We can give you the fit and feel you want without the brand name price tag. If you actually just joined the team because you heard there were free snacks, we have super casual T-shirt options you can wear both on and off the field.

Most of our jerseys fall safely into two categories; the serious and the hilarious.

THE SERIOUS

THE HILARIOUS

The best thing about printing all of these jerseys is getting to see the creative team names that our clients come up with. If you have a funny name for your sports team, we want to hear it! Comment below or shoot us an email with your idea.

As always, you can find more of our designs at www.cornerstoneimpressions.com or by checking us out on social media:

As a Fort Worth based company,  we are right in the middle of an area with multiple colleges and universities. Every fall, sororities and fraternities from these local universities begin recruiting their new members.

Recruitment for sororities is a huge deal. For nearly a week, hundreds of girls go from sorority house to sorority house meeting girls, learning about the various philanthropic efforts of each sorority, and eventually deciding which one is the best fit for them. Once the week is over, the new sorority members are super excited to wear their new Greek letters!

Sometimes finding congratulatory gifts for sorority girls is hard because not every company is licensed to sell these products. Fortunately, we are! Just in time for fall recruitment, we’ve added plenty of new products to our online sorority shop. It’s now easier than ever to purchase Greek apparel and gifts for the sorority girl in your life.

Check out some of our sorority gifts below!

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.

One of the best things about working at a screen printing company is getting to know the people you print for. Printing for occasions like family reunions and spring break is always fun because you know your clients are going to have a good time in their new shirts.

Sometimes, our clients even send us pictures from their events, and it’s so much fun for us to see! Sharing the good times is our favorite thing of all. So this week we want to feature the UT Arlington Baptist Student Ministry and their spring break tanks!

UTABSM-tank

This past spring break, the BSM took a trip to Houston, where they spent their week in the inner-city working with backyard bible clubs, construction teams, food pantries, and other organizations. We think it’s wonderful to see this group of young people spending their break helping others!

When clients stop by our office, we like to take them on a little tour of our workshop. We show them the screen printing process, explain what these giant machines do and how the shirts are actually made. By doing this, we’ve learned that people really love screen printing!

Our clients love to see the process and we love to share it with them. Since we can’t bring the whole world into our shop, we wanted to bring it to you. Check out this video and watch as these fraternity T-shirts make their way from plain to printed!

Of course, this video only includes a small part of the screen printing process. We’ll call this the “ink to tee” portion. There’s much more to see, and we are happy to show you. Shoot us an email to let us know what you want us to feature next on Just Inkin’ Around! In the meantime, check us out on social media here:

Spring break is when color makes its comeback. After months of dark winter apparel, it’s safe to say we’re ready to brighten things up.

Enter spring break: Relaxation, warm weather, and fun with friends. Spring break means colorful tees and tanks commemorating your vacation with friends. It means printed hats with hashtags and inside jokes. For those of us who no longer get to experience spring break, these items are a fun reminder. For those of you who still do, customized gear is an absolute necessity. We’ll give you three real reasons.

REASON #1: YOU WONT GET LOST

If you’re going on vacation with your friends to somewhere beachy, chances are you can expect a crowd. Spring break is a popular vacation time, but remember: unfamiliar cities + lots of people = lost friends.

How do you avoid the lost friend problem? Obviously you need to get matching neon shirts for your whole group. If one friend disappears for a few minutes, they will be easy to spot in a crowd. When you ask people if they’ve seen your friend, they’re more likely to remember the person in a neon orange tank top than the person in a white shirt. *Side note: If you plan on ditching your friends, you should probably bring a white shirt to change into, because nobody loses the friend in neon! #fact

REASON #2: TAUNTING THE FRIEND WHO STAYED HOME

Group vacations are never easy. There’s always one person whose schedule didn’t work out and they have to stay home. We feel bad for that friend. However, sometimes one friend CHOOSES to stay behind! When a friend chooses to stay behind instead of have fun, they deserve to be punished.

How do you punish this friend? Step 1: Make custom shirts, tanks, hats, fanny packs, really anything you can think of. Step 2: Print inside joke from the trip on those items. Make it a funny saying or a #hashtag phrase. Step 3: Wear these items around this friend for years and years to come, but never tell them what the inside joke means.

REASON #3: SPRING BREAK DOESN’T LAST FOREVER

Unless you’re a teacher (or a student for life), there comes a time when we must let go of spring break and all of its glory. Someday when you’re out there adulting, wishing you were on a beach, you can pull out those spring break shirts and feel young and free. You can look at the pictures of you and your friends in matching neon and think about all the memories you made (unless you’re the friend who stayed home).

Custom tees hold sentimental value because they remind us of times we cherish and memories made. Trust us, spring break with your friends is one of those times. Commemorate it while you can!

When you think about custom T-shirts, you probably think of a basic shirt. When you think about your T-shirt style options, you probably think, ‘well, I can get long sleeves or short sleeves, and I can choose a shirt with a pocket or without.’

Don’t get us wrong, classic T-shirts are great. But if long/short and pocket/no pocket were the only two options we could offer clients, we probably would have chosen to work in a different industry. Your custom shirts represent you! Your style, your message, your hobbies, your passions, your businesses, your brands, you, you, you! So when you need custom shirts, it’s important to choose a style that reflects who you are!

We realize you probably had no idea there were more options available, and we’ll take the blame for that! How could you know if we never told you? So today we’re showing you a few fresh styles.
