Sublimation Printing and the Pocket Trend
By Dean Schwartz (“SWAG Master”): One of our favorite – and most popular – forms of printing is sublimation printing. In short, it’s a printing technique that allows for us to customize a design on every curve and crevice using synthetic materials. The end result is some of the most customized, SWAG-tastic work that we produce.
We’re writing about it today because, while the trend of sublimation printing has been around for a while, it’s also recently allowed for a fashion tie-in, as the pocket print on clothing – t-shirts in particular – has grown by leaps and bounds.
As you’ll see by some of the attached images, the pocket has quickly become the statement maker that neck ties and, in recent vintage, socks were. The pocket makes a statement and sets apart an otherwise ordinary article of clothing from the back of ‘blah.’
Sublimation printing allows us to customize that valuable piece of shirt real estate in any imaginable way.
To give you an idea of what those customizations can be, we tracked down some of the hottest trends. In short, classic camouflage and floral prints are hot, but so are bold, bright colors. The intricacy depends on the customer’s – that’s you – preference for SWAG imagination.
We can even customize patterns into the shirt pocket, create an interesting twist on your logo, and more.
And if the pocket area isn’t your cup of tea? Sublimation printing is limitless. We can put designs all over the item of clothing, from the sleeve, the neck, the side, the…getting the picture? Anywhere.
As is the case with our favorite work, the levels of customization are virtually limitless. These are the types of projects that get our SWAG customizers riled up with excitement.
