Summer is in full swing and our in-house trends expert, Laura Ewing, has got some new design trends to share! This year, summer is all about bold, bright prints—perfect for all-over print products (sublimation). Illusions, loud statements, and classic motifs are all on trend this year as well. Read on for Laura’s top picks.
Talk to the palm
A classic choice, palm leaves are a go-to shape when designing for warmer weather. This year is no different, with the pattern showing up on nearly everything in Teespring’s catalog.
Try mixing this pattern with design elements related to your audience for a unique take on a current design. Check out the tutorial below on how to create your own custom patterns for all-over print products.
2019 is the year of being bold! Sassy, subversive statements are in and are highlighted by bold fonts, vibrant colors, and capital lettering. Play-on-words, innuendos, and rhyming all pair well with this trend.
Eat, sleep, beach, repeat
Nearly 100 million Americans are planning on taking a trip, with 257.4 million expected to fly between June 1st and August 31st. Take advantage of these numbers by designing with the traveler in mind—globe or aviation themes remain popular, as well as warm weather items like swimsuits and towels.
Some of the coolest new items at Teespring are all-over print products, and what better way to try these out that with mermaid scales? Kids will love these iridescent-inspired colorways and special effects they provide. Apply this design concept to beach towels, home decor products, swimsuits, blankets, and more with Teespring.
Flamingoes have recently surged in popularity across e-commerce marketplaces. Fashion searches for “flamingo” increased over 105% last year on Lyst and the flamingo emoji was just released this February. This is expected to be a top-selling design category this summer so try it out for yourself.
