Best Blanks and Apparel for Spring
Mar 9th 2022
Spring is just around the corner… FINALLY. We understand deciding between the hundreds of quality garments we offer can be a tough choice. To help you out, we narrowed it down to our top five must haves for the upcoming spring season.
1.) Sport-Tek® Colorblock Raglan Jersey
With spring sports starting back up, let’s get you prepared to rep your favorite little league or MLB stars with this ¾ length crowd pleaser. These are offered in unisex sizing so everyone on your team has a chance to enjoy this comfortable classic.
We decorated this with a Supacolor Wearable transfer, this shirt is 100% cotton so will also work with all HTV as well. We used our WALAPress 15x15 Manual Drawer Heat Press for this shirt.
2.)Port Authority® Ladies Cascade Waterproof Jacket
Spring showers bring new outerwear into your wardrobe. For those days when the rain just won't stop, our Cascade Waterproof Jacket is fully seam-sealed with waterproof zippers. This parka-length essential has modern good looks thanks to its trendy colors, contrast zippers and color blocking.
We decorated this jacket with Easyweed Electric Tungsten. With waterproof jackets like this, it is always a good idea to use rubbing alcohol on the area you are about to press on. Use a small amount on a cloth and wipe the area gently. This will help the adhesive sink into the material better! Also, when pressing jackets like these with zippers, make sure you try to keep any plastic/metal away from the heat. You may also need to use a heat press pillow to get even pressure. We used our WALAPress 15x15 Manual Drawer Heat Press for this jacket.
3.)Sport-Tek ® Youth Tricot Track Jogger
Make sure your little track star outruns the competition this spring. Designed for movement, these classic tricot track joggers have a tapered fit and easy on/off zippers. These pants are perfect for warming up for any spring sport - not just track!
We decorated these pants with Easyweed Matte White. These pants are made from 100% polyester so they will work with most HTV and Supacolor transfers! We used our WALAPress 16x20 auto heat press for these pants.
4.)Port Authority® Voyager Sports Duffel
Spring Break plans? We’ve got you covered. For when you overpack (we all end up doing it) our large Voyager Sports Duffel has just the space you need! The adjustable strap allows for you and your things to journey anywhere easily.
We decorated this bag with a Supacolor promotional transfer. These transfers are perfect for materials you won’t be washing frequently, like this bag! This bag is made from polyester, which can be paired with most options of HTV. Remember to use a heat press pillow when necessary to get even pressure throughout pressing. We used our WALAPress 15x15 Manual Drawer heat press for this bag.
5.) Port Authority ® Snapback Fine Twill Cap
This spring staple is perfect for those sunny days ahead when you're planting in the garden or cheering from the bleachers. With its 7-position adjustable snap you can’t go wrong with this essential.
We decorated this hat with ThermoFlex Turbo Low Temp Sky Blue. Hats like this can be decorated with HTV or Supacolor Headwear transfers. You may need to add a small heat press pillow if there are thick seams on the hat. We used our WALAPress hat press for this hat.
You can’t go wrong with any of these blanks to get ready for the busy season ahead! For more detailed instructions on using our cap press and other heat presses, check out these helpful videos:
