Lightweight T-Shirt

One of the responsibilities of the Merchandise Team here at CustomInk is to follow trends in the t-shirt market as well as trends set by our customers’ buying habits. (I know - we’re SO on it!)  And one of the reasons why I love our Common Threads blog is because I can share these trends with you.  Neon? Check.  Athletic Styles? Check.  And the newest trend….insert drum roll here….Lightweight Tees!  Read more –>

Colorful Mugs & Cups

Wow, I’m parched! Luckily I won’t be for much longer thanks to one of our newest custom drinkware additions – the 16 oz. Acrylic Café Tumbler. The best part about this new cup is that while I’m sipping, I can also be patting myself on the back – both figuratively and literally – for being eco-friendly with a reusable cup! Its double-walled interior keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. Plus it comes in 10 fun colors like Apple, Fuchsia and Tangerine, to name just a few.

And speaking of keeping things hot, you can drink your morning coffee (or beverage of choice) in style with either the new Coffeehouse Travel Mug or the Elite Travel Mug. The handle-less Coffeehouse Travel Mug is double-insulated to keep the heat in your drink and not in your hands, and is both dishwasher and microwave safe.  The Elite Travel Mug is foam insulated and comes in 8 colors – perfect for any hot beverage on the go.  Happy sipping!

Pink-Red Pantone Colors

Every year, Pantone® (a company seen by creative professionals as the experts on color) chooses a hue to highlight as their “Color of the Year.”  And this year, the lucky color is….Honeysuckle! That’s right – Honeysuckle is “in” for 2011 thanks to its gentle but exhilarating reddish-pink brilliance.  According to Pantone®, it looks great on both men and women, and anyone who wears it will exude health and confidence.  Well, in celebration of health and confidence (two traits we all should find VERY important), take a look at some of our pink t-shirts and celebrate the year of the Honeysuckle!!

Design in the lab on these styles:

Ever wish you knew more about the fabrics used to make our products?  Thought you did, so I’ve dedicated this blog post to schooling you on polyester – a “go-to” fabric in many of our athletic and t-shirt styles.  It’s come a long way since the very “colorful” clothes of the 70s (that was the nicest way I could say it). And with the growing popularity of performance wear and blended tees, polyester’s comeback is stronger than Britney’s! Read more –>
