Mirror Finish Decoration

This is a really cool way to decorate a jacket. It's a silver mirror-finish/matte black (other colors available) application.

It creates a really sleek, trendy look that is sure to wow! Contact your TRENDY Rep for more information.

Trendy All-Over Print

We are noticing a huge trend of very basic tees being decorated with very trendy designs.

This is a great example of some of our latest screen printing techniques we can offer. It's an oversized, all-over print using both red foil and various shades of water-base ink in grey.

The combination on a basic white tee is absolutely beautiful and extremely high-end retail-looking!

A Few Things to Note:
*Waterbase/Discharge inks feel very similar to the garment itself, rather than a plastic-y overlay (standard plastisol screen printing).
*Not all garments are created equal when using waterbase/discharge ink...ask us which garments are best!
*The Oversized/All-Over and Discharge/Waterbase print requires a minimum of 144 garments.
*Standard Production time for both the waterbase/discharge and/or Oversized/All-Over Printing is 10-15 bus. days, not including shipping.

Mini Dance Camp Fundraiser

This is our stock mini camp design. Perfect for when you want to give a t-shirt to your mini camp participants.

To make this mini camp t-shirt a fundraiser, we suggest asking your local business within your community for sponsorship ads to put on the back! This is a great way to make even more money for your Mini Camp since your t-shirt costs usually cut into your profit!

Cindy or Amii for more information on this great t-shirt and/or fundraiser!

From Start to Finish

Here is an example below of how we can take a drawing and translate it into a working piece of art for shirts.

The West Brook Stars in Beaumont, TX gave us this rough sketch on ruled paper back in January at TDEA.

Cindy then created this art for both the front and the back based on the drawing.

Next, the art was put on the garments that had been selected so that the Stars could see a virtual of what the finished printing would look like.

An order form was then created to email to West Brook so they could print it out and make copies to pass out.

What's really cool about the order form is that the West Brook Stars had initially planned on ordering a total of 72 shirts but after passing out the order form, they were able to sell 144 shirts!

Here is what Tisha and Stacey, of the West Brook Stars, had to say about TRENDY expressions:

“We have been using TRENDY expressions for years and we have
NEVER been disappointed. Not only is the service and product outstanding, but
the thing we love best is that we can simply give Cindy and Amii an idea and
they run with it and come up with a very unique and great shirt for all of our
needs. They are incredible!”

Yeah! Thank you West Brook for being such wonderful people to work with! Once the West Brook Stars receive their shirts, we will post a picture of the final product!
