Wearables will always be 'In'

It only took a few design drafts for the CYC to setttle on these prints for their T’s, hoodies, and sweatpants, and they’re likely to be worn year-round. Distressed imprint designs (bottom left) have been popular for years, especially when your screen printer uses ink that will never crackle (and will probably outlast the garment).

Cleanup vs Redraw


When an original art file is lost we have some decisions to make in a cost-vs-quality argument. In this example the printed piece can be scanned and ‘cleaned-up’ using raster image tools (Photoshop, etc.). This method may suffice for small printed items and is relatively inexpensive. But for larger prints it becomes necessary to ‘re-draw’ the graphics and text using vector tools like Illustrator, Canvas, CorelDRAW!, etc.
