Screen Printing For Brooklyn Schools:
“School Spirit” apparel has become a staple to most schools located in Brooklyn. They promote unity amongst the student body and are a great
way for schools to raise funds. When is comes to creating school spirit wear you have to always be aware of one key component, Colors. School colors are what differentiate them from each other. The aesthetic for each school can vary from colorful mascots to single color phrases. School shirts are not limited to just Fundraising. There are various occasions when you can show School Spirit. Sports Teams and School Plays can benefit from a touch of unity.
As a Screen Printing company located in Brooklyn we have worked on a lot of School Spirit Designs. We have worked with Various Schools. Including P.S. 214, P.S. 236, I.S. 281 and Mark Twain Middle School to name a few. You will find no better loyalty in a client then working with schools.
The work we recently did for P.S. 214 involved Heather grey and Red Raglans. We did a matching red for the front and back. The front was the school name arched. With Raglans I find the arch effect helps to center the piece. If you were to do text straight then you would need to be
very conscience of placement. With the arched type you just have to center the top of the arch and you have the image perfectly centered.
The back of these raglans had each student’s name.
Now that winter is coming we have retired most of the t-shirts here in Brooklyn. Hoodies and Sweaters are increasing in demand. For P.S. 236 we have done for them a full graphic front. With Hoodies is is a good Idea to hit the white multiple times. This helps to keep the print smooth and remove any opacity. This design came out very smooth. You often see a large screen printing surge for T-shirts right as summer hits and then for Hoodies right around the beginning of fall. So if you stock-up you can plan for that. Some schools do prefer to use a scholarly approach to there “School Spirit”, we have worked with a few schools that like to parody popular designs.
For Mark Twain Middle School we did a design based off of a Popular Run DMC Shirt. The humor in this is that they used RUN CMD. Which if you are as digitally inclined you know is a computer command to bring up the coding menu. The staff had a blast with this one.
