In case you missed it. Life Is A Mixtape shirt We kicked off our Design Innovation Series: Street Fleece Edition on YouTube by going over the basics of printing on fleece fabric. So if you missed it, we recapped it in last week’s blog that you can check out here. This week, we’re diving into design trends. More specifically? Applying a neon print to a neutral garment. Neons are hot right now, but wearing a neon hoodie while a bold look, is not the most wearable thing in the world. Our solution: pair it with a neutral. This combo is a win in our book because it’s understated and brings an element of color to a sophisticated color palette. We aren’t the only ones who are a fan of this look either. We scoped this color combo out on our favorite department stores. Sold yet? Keep reading to see how it’s done.

We worked with Kingtees to create an in-depth printing resource that will greatly benefit the industry. Life Is A Mixtape shirt All the fabrics both solids and heathers that we tested performed extremely well, most had virtually no dye migration and we also found great discharge results, said Rick Roth from Ink Kitchen. In order to make this super comprehensible, we created a Printing Recommendations page to break down these results based on his tests. We had every color of our top-selling fabrications tested with four types of inks. For this test, Rick Roth, printing Guru and founder of The Ink Kitchen, applied three plastisol inks, cotton white ink, 50/50 white ink, and polyester white ink to the fabrics as well as a discharge base. We used white so we could accurately detect any dye migration. For the plastisol inks, he selected the highest performing ink as the recommendation for printing. For the discharge ink, he graded the performance of the discharge on a A, B, C, N/A Too Light, Unique Effect grade scale, with A being the highest performing. Before we dive any deeper, we want to remind you that the results and recommendations below should only be used as a starting point. You should ALWAYS do your own testing, as there are so many variables when screen printing.
