With the end of summer looming in most places, I’ve been thinking about how some of the hottest trends of the summer will probably continue on into fall. However, where summer is the season for bright showy colors, things do tend to become more simplified in the fall, both in nature and in t-shirt art. Since fall means back to school, it’s time to review what types of designs are most popular for school wear. And not just colleges and high schools, but all types of schools, from pre-k to elementary to middle schools. Even home-schooled kids sometimes get together with other home-schooled kids and anytime there’s a group of kids doing something together, there’s usually a desire for a custom t-shirt to commemorate the occasion. Remember, these designs can be as simple as a school name, done with lettering. And don’t forget about offering your customers reflective lettering or logos for those new backpacks. Here are some links to some older blog posts that can give you ideas on how to create great back-to-school looks quickly and easily with your heat press.
