In case you missed it. nakoma Tala great warrior wolf shirt We kicked off our Design Innovation Series: Street Fleece Edition on YouTube by going over the basics of printing on fleece fabric. So if you missed it, we recapped it in last week’s blog that you can check out here. This week, we’re diving into design trends. More specifically? Applying a neon print to a neutral garment. Neons are hot right now, but wearing a neon hoodie while a bold look, is not the most wearable thing in the world. Our solution: pair it with a neutral. This combo is a win in our book because it’s understated and brings an element of color to a sophisticated color palette. We aren’t the only ones who are a fan of this look either. We scoped this color combo out on our favorite department stores. Sold yet? Keep reading to see how it’s done.

For our interpretation of this trend, we used our Street Fleece campaign imagery for the back and our logo for the front. nakoma Tala great warrior wolf shirt We’ll show you how to achieve this by using multiple layers of white and black ink and an accent of white puff ink for slight dimension. Looking at a black and white image, you might assume it’s a two screen print. However for this image, we employed the use of seven screens to get a soft, tonal and gradient look. We used two underbase screens, two black screens, two whites, and one extra screen with white puff ink for a subtle accent of texture and dimension. Printing on the front of a garment can be challenging, but we’ll show you how we achieved precision placement, negotiating the zipper. We recommend using what we call a soft top platen. It’s coated with a silicone foam topper and is about 3/8 thick. It will compress down as we print, which is really important to avoid ripping the screen open as it pulls across. Spritz a light mist of tack, flatten out the garment and it’s ready to print! Looking for one extra layer of protection? Try applying painters tape so there’s no part of that hot metal zipper that’s going to touch the screen.
