Kids Prints Ideas
Posted on 18 July 2016
Kids and summer are two things that go well together. Both could be described as active, vibrant, and lively ─ and for good reason! To enjoy their summertime to the fullest, our kids deserve the best from us. A great way to get your child really excited for the summer is to give them a customized clothing item that they can wear throughout the season. From activewear, to swimwear, to hoodies for the campfire and more, there are tons of options available for you to pick out for your child, or for your children to pick out on their own! Here is a guide on how to decide what’s best to print on for your child, and which options are the best for you.
First, let’s cover colour for the material that you’d like to print on. Typically, kids love bright colours. We find bright colours to be the most popular for children, especially when in the summer they may be around many other children - making them difficult to spot in situations like outdoor theme parks and pools.
Second, make sure you choose a printing colour that will contrast against the colour of the material you’re printing on. That way, your design will be clearly legible when worn. Third, make sure that the material you’re printing on is easy to clean. Choose colours and fabrics that don’t stain easily, and are laundry-friendly. Our staff at R&P Prints will point out these fabrics to you. As well, as a guiding rule, we typically recommend avoiding white at all costs to prevent difficult laundry problems.
Now it’s time to move to the design itself! Popular designs for summer include cartoon animals or plants, huge letters, bright polkadots, and repeating patterns. A suitable design for children should be something that is relatable to their age. For example, a great design for a 5 year old could involve summer fruits like strawberries or water scenes with their names included. Older children may want to be more involved in the creative process, and design their printing options themselves. At R&P Prints, we work together with our customers to create amazing designs that they’ll love! No design experience from our customers is required.
Lastly, our fifth tip is to ensure the printed items are comfortable. Comfort is the determinant factor whether your kids will wear a clothing item. With that in mind, at R&P Prints, we offer a variety of internationally recognized brands for youth, including American Apparel and Gildan. By using trusted brands, we can ensure that the materials that are used as a base for your kids clothing will be comfortable and adjustable to their active lifestyle. We offer a variety of options including sweatshirts, t-shirts, jackets and more so that you could choose the best items for your kids.
