The Industry

Custom t-shirts are printed using the industry standard design programs to create graphics for screen-printing. The most common are Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. As long as the desired image can be flattened, it can be used in most cases. The main goal of most producers is that the design meets quality standards and can be produced using one of their types of screen printing.

All-over screen printing: This method covers the t-shirt to include the front, back, collar, and sleeve. This is a standard method in the custom t-shirt printing industry.

Soft-hand printing: this technique is in high demand and uses designs that are inspired at retail establishments. Softer printing can easily be achieved using soft-hand printing.

Embroidery: There are many embroidery choices as well. While not screen printing, it's still a common offering among screen-printing professionals.

Using one of these two methods, companies can make anyone's custom t-shirt visions become a reality. Shirts can be personalized with the organization logo, name or names of employees. The hundreds of specialty inks and thread colors mean that shirts can be personalized in a variety of options.

As an added bonus, there's no running to the store to try and get the right size, fit and style of shirt desired. It can be created from home and shipped right to a person's doorstep when they use an online print shop.

images (17)One of the first things that people notice about you is your appearance. This is the reason why one's appearance is given so much importance. Denim jeans wear forms an integral part of dressing these days, but this is also specifically where plenty of people tend to go wrong. Most people fail to realize just how important a good pair of jeans are and thus, end up making some rookie mistakes while picking out a pair for themselves.

So, if you don't want to make such mistakes, here are some tips on how to choose the correct denim jeans wear for yourself.

• Concentrate on the details - While you are out to pick a pair of denims, you must concentrate on all the details. It is essential that you focus on the length, waistline, pockets, side seams, etc. of the jeans, in order to get the perfect look and the right shape.

• The jeans must be elastic - You must make sure that the jeans you pick out are elastic. Elasticity is highly important as your jeans must not form creases around the knees and should not hold you up when stretching. So, make sure that your pair of jeans passes the above criteria and you are all set.

• Try them before you buy them - A lot of people tend to make this mistake. They just buy a pair of jeans according to their size, but it is extremely important to try them on before you purchase them. This is because once you try on your jeans, only then will you get to know the fit. So, ensure that you try them on and are comfortable with your pair of denims before making a purchase.

• Try different types of denims - These days there are different types of denims that are available in the market. So, instead of going with the regular ones, why don't you try skinny jeans or straight leg jeans? These denims are must have items in anyone's closet and will give you a much cooler look, obviously bringing in a lot of variety.

• Be Bold - Experiment with your denims and do not just go for the boring black ones. There are a variety of colors that are available these days from ice blue to ash grey. These colors look much better than the normal black ones. So, the next time you are out shopping, do give these colors a try!

 

images (18)When the temperature reaches close to boiling point, don't you feel jealous of your significant other? The truth is, every man envies women in summer, because she can wear a skirt and summery blouse and still be dressed, but you can't. So you still sweat it every day to and from office in a bulky suit.

Ever thought of the summer suit? This type of suit lets you remain comfortable in the heat while not having to sacrifice your office wear. Here's a basic guide to the summer suit to help you make the best choice.

Summer Suit Fabrics

Still wearing woolen suits in the peak of summer? It's time to put them away till autumn and welcome cotton and linen in. Cotton and linen are renowned for being cool, lightweight fabrics that keep you both stylish and comfortable. Linen does crease easily, but a little maintenance and care can rid you of the problem.

When buying a summer suit, also look for something unlined and in a loose weave. Loose weave gives more breathability and skipping the lining keeps you breezy and comfy.

Summer Suit Colours

Colours go a long way in keeping you cool in the heat. So be prepared to become a sauna if you opt for blacks and browns. Steer clear of dark colours and make friends with summer favourites grey and khaki. If you really must stick to office appropriate colours, then these will work great while also keeping you cool.

On the other hand, if you want to do mad things because of the heat, try mauve, beige, green, powder blue... Of course, you'll receive more than a second or third glance at office, but that shouldn't be a problem if you love standing out. Don't hesitate to try different patterns either.

Shirts With A Summer Suit

The main aim of a summer suit is to keep you comfortable in the heat. Keeping this in mind, the shirts should be of the same fabric as the suit. Stick to linen and cotton since nothing is more comfortable than lightweight, breathable fabrics. Look for shirts in a loose weave for increased breathability. If you don't always need to dress formal, then you can easily replace the shirt with a well-fitted polo. Polo shirts look cool with a suit and are less uncomfortable than shirts. Feel free to play with colours, patterns, and prints. Summer's the time to make heads turn.

Shoes And Accessories With A Summer Suit

The rules remain the same as any other suit. But if you choose to stay alive and well in the sultry summer, skip the necktie when it's not absolutely essential. Go for an open-collared shirt to allow your neck to breathe. Socks are also optional in summer, and you would want to keep your shoes stylish as well as comfortable by choosing something in light leather or canvas.

When summer torments with the heat, it's time to give your wardrobe a makeover to remain comfortable and stylish. A summer suit will ensure you need not dread getting dressed for office anymore!

images (16)Lehengas are hands down one of the most charming ethnic attire that an Indian woman can wear and look absolutely gorgeous, especially if she is the bride-to-be. But, have you ever imagined how she would look donning a lehenga that doesn't have a single sequin embedded on it or a single embroidery done over it? Will it look good? No way! It will never look attractive; after all, who would like to don a lehenga which has no spark, and nil gorgeousness? There are various types of sequins and embroidery found in India, but it is you who has to choose the one that you feel suits you the best.

If you have a wedding around the corner (it may be your wedding, a friend's wedding, or your sibling/cousin's wedding), then don't forget to wear an arresting lehenga that would instantly enhance your charm, and all the men around you wouldn't be able to take their eyes off you.

Here are certain sequins and embroidery that you can choose or ask your designer to embed them on your flowy wedding or party-wear lehenga.

Embroidery best suited for wedding lehenga:
The ever-royal Gotta Patti embroidery
Gotta Patti embroidery is basically a Rajasthani specialty, which has become famous throughout India. And now-a-days, almost every woman (mostly bride-to-be) loves to don attires that have gotta patti embroidery done all over it. It is basically a type of embroidery that look like 'patti', which means leaves in Hindi. The entire embroidery is either golden or silver in colour; you will never find a different colored gotta patti embroidery.

Zardozi embroidery can be your show stealer
Zardozi is a type of embroidery that was brought in India by the Mughals. The term Zardozi derived from two words, 'zar' which means gold and 'Dozi', which means embroidery. Earlier, Zardozi embroidery was solely done using precious metals such as gold and silver, but in today's era, steel wires are also used to create pretty Zardozi embroidery over the lehenga and its choli. And it's inexpensive too, when compared to silver and golden wires).

Kutch work is too pretty to be true!
'Kutch' is a type of art work (thread work) that has emerged from the very well-known Kutch region of Gujarat. But the strange part is, this art form was never practiced by Gujaratis. Instead, refugees from Afghan and Iran brought this lovely embroidery concept with them, and made it a point to spread it throughout the Kutch region of Gujarat. This type of embroidery usually requires colourful silk and cotton threads along with some mirror sequins. So, if you want your lehenga to be really colourful, then go for a kutch work lehenga.

So, these were some of the Indian embroideries which would look absolutely stunning on a vibrant (fuchsia pink or chili red) colored lehenga.

Sequins that best suits a bridal lehenga:
"Mirror Mirror Everywhere!"
Mirrors are perhaps the only sequin that will never let your attire down at any cost. Mirrors sequins are simply gorgeous and will hands-down add an extra edge to your outfit. So, if you want to look scintillating on your d-day or your sister's wedding, then undoubtedly go for mirror sequins.

Pearl sequins are too gorgeous
If your wedding lehenga's budget is quite handsome, then don't think much and go for the ones that have pretty pearl sequins embedded all over it in different patterns. Pearl itself is a very sophisticated stone, so when it gets embedded all over a lehenga's body, obviously its status becomes height.

Metal sewing sequins are stylish as well
We have earlier talked about Zardozi, which is an embroidery done using metal wires, isn't it? Now, it's time to talk about metal sequins. Metal sequins are widely used in designing and decorating bridal sarees and lehengas, so it's quite a famous type of sequins in the market, and will make a lehenga look really stunning.

So, these were some type of embroidery and sequins that will look absolutely ravishing on a bridal, as well as party-wear lehenga. Which embroidery and sequins would you prefer?

images (15)The best part of the product is that it will be original, and set the wearer apart from the rest of the public. For anyone that is considering, it may help to check out the following steps and then get busy creating products that are like no other.

Step One: Choose the Product

There are plenty of products to choose from no matter what type of company one goes through be it a physical store or online only type of store. They also come in all colors of the rainbow. Some of the common items offered other than t-shirts are:

· Hoodies

· Sweatshirts

· Hats

· Tank tops

· Polos

· Bags

· Sweatpants

Of course this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what one can have personalized. Be ready to be faced with many decisions! When in doubt, many simply go with custom screen printing t-shirts. T-shirts come in basic style, V-neck, and scoop neck, as well as many fits for men, women and children.

Step Two: Pick Artwork

Once the product is chosen, it's time to settle on artwork. Most companies that are custom screen printing t-shirts have a large database of clip art that can be placed on the shirt. It can be centered on the front or back, over the pocket or even on the sleeve. If the buyer wants to supply their own artwork it can often be arranged as well. As long as there are no copyright issues anything can be put on to a t-shirt, and it can be printed in any color.

Step Three: Choose and Arrange Wording

Fonts are just as plentiful as artwork, whatever font is desired it can be used. Comic sans, Helvetica and times new roman are a few of the most popular. They are often all displayed in the business or on the website. The wording can also be anything one chooses, and be in any color.

The experts that are creating the custom screen printing t-shirts will often let the creator know if they believe there will be an issue with the design. They'll suggest similar options so that the buyer can choose.

Step Four: Get a Quote and Order

Once all decisions are made and the design is set upon the t-shirt, it will be sent to the customer for approval. Any changes should be made right away so the order can be placed and completed in a timely manner. Usually it takes about two weeks for an order, but it will depend on the size. If the order is for a group it may take longer, but the bonus is that most places will offer discounts for bulk orders. This is awesome not only for people but also for people that plan to sell the finished product.

When one chooses to create custom screen printing on t-shirts, they are creating something that is all their own. There is no wardrobe like one that is completely unique and not found on the shelves of big box stores. That can easily be accomplished with custom screen printing. Finding a company to produce and supply quality t-shirts and similar products is the start of what could be a long relationship and a great wardrobe!

download (41)Redecorating a home or simply decorating one for the first time can be an immense task. Not only is it necessary to pick out furnishings, but also choose a coherent theme and colour scheme for each and every room. For those who want to create their ideal space and love beautiful aesthetics, the pressure is on to create the perfect living space.

One part of decorating a home is choosing the right fabric for upholstery and for curtains in order to style rooms in an effective and appealing manner. Fabrics in a room can really transform the look of a space, so whether you go for a bold look or a subdued one, picking out the right textiles is extremely important.

With that said, it is relatively easy to fall into some common traps when choosing fabric for upholstery. Here are several mistakes that are commonly made that can very easily be avoided.

The first common error is not choosing a theme and a colour scheme for your living spaces before buying your fabrics. Many people instead go straight to picking out a beautiful piece of material without really thinking about how it will look on their property, and this is a major mistake.

The reason for this is that - as mentioned above - selecting the right fabrics or the wrong fabrics can really change the appearance of a room.

Using an overpowering colour or fabric can make the look of a room too busy and simply overwhelming, whereas choosing something too plain can make a space bland, boring and even clinical.

For this reason, doing thorough research on the design of your space before you purchase is very important. If this is done correctly, you will also cut down time spent searching for fabrics online, as you will be must clearer about the colours, shade intensity and patterns that you know will work as part of your design plan.

The next common error is not ordering a sample of a fabric before buying, as this can lead to some serious buyer's remorse. Often one of the major problems with buying fabric for upholstery either online or offline is that it is very difficult to accurately envisage how these materials can look in your home.

Indeed, something can look amazing on the rack in a shop, yet when on your sofa in your living room in abundant natural light it can look entirely different altogether. This means that trialling samples of fabric - preferably next to one another - is the quickest and easiest way to ensuring that you buy something that is right for your home.

Many reputable retailers offer the chance to enjoy several free samples of fabric for upholstery, which you can then examine under different lights in your home to determine which one is the best. It is important not to rush this stage and settle for something that is just 'OK' - instead try to get as many samples as you can before you pick out a final fabric.

Lastly, a common error that many people make is not accurately measuring their furniture or their windows in order to buy the right length of material. Again, this can lead to serious buyer's remorse when it turns out that not enough fabric has been bought and all the money so far invested has been a waste.

It is also important to note that overestimating sizes and lengths of fabric is far better than underestimating. If in doubt, have a professional upholsterer measure your furniture properly so you do not make any mistakes in this department. Although this may seem like a costly solution, it is often worth this little extra fee to avoid costly mistakes.

 

download (40)Are you looking for the perfect pair of summer boots for yourself? If so, our tips can help you. Finding the right pair of shoes should be a piece of cake if you have a keen eye and open approach. Before you choose a pair, you should determine a few things. You should decide the color, style, height and several other things before making the buying decision. Below are some of the essential factors to take into account before you go and buy your favorite pair of shoes.

Heels

High heels give your feet a lift while flatting your ankles and calves. For a balanced height and comfort, you should go for a 3-inch heel. But make sure you buy the shoes made from high quality material. The back of the boots should not pinch your heel. Similarly, your feet should feel comfortable in the toe box.

Flats
Are you into flats? Flats feature a classic look offering a combination of great comfort and elegance. For instance, ballet flats can be an ideal choice for dinning out. In the same way, some designs have rubber soles that make them a great choice if you want to put them on and scamper around your favorite beach. For a classy look, you can wear your favorite flats with short-shorts, miniskirts or tapered pants.

Sandals
Unlike other types of boots, sandals allow you feet to breathe. Usually, they are made from posh leather or canvas. For summer dresses, simple designs are a good choice. On the other hand, slacks and sheet dresses go well with beaded numbers and bi-tones.

Wedges
Wedges were designed as an alternative to today's heels. Since its invention in 1930, the designers have created many stylized and sculpted designs, such as the espadrille and the wedge boot. These shoes shape your calves and ankles just like heels. Besides, they give you secure footing. So, wedges are the perfect choice for outdoor concerts and barbecues.

Clogs And Mules
Conventionally, the soles of clogs are made from cork or wood. They give support to the bottom of your feet. That is why health professionals recommend clogs to those looking for a comfortable pair of boots.

Clogs feature a round toe, but mules have open backs. Mules are available in various styles, such as flats and peep toes. For a summer look, mules are a great addition. But for formal events, you can go for a closed toe pair of mules.

The takeaway

So, you may want to keep in mind the points given in this guide when buying your favorite pair of boots. Keep in mind that price should not be your most important consideration when buying boots, as an uncomfortable pair of boots will make it harder for you to walk. Your feet may get hurt and you may not be able to walk for a few days in worse cases. Therefore, keep the pointers in mind when buying your next pair of summer boots. Hope this helps.
