AWESOME Raised Logos On Clothing

January 08, 2018 - AN News, Fashion, New Products

Raised Logos

While exploring through our various options for what materials to use for our logo on new items, we ended up testing out something that is referred to as Raised/3D/Brick Vinyl.  Although there are many different versions out there, ranging from thickness to textures, we decided that this is the material category to use instead of our previous consideration to use flock vinyl.

WHAT THE FLOCK?!

November 27, 2017 - AN News, Fashion, New Arrivals, New Products

So what is flock? 

Basically, it's this fuzzy, maybe a tad furry feeling material you sometimes find on toys and even on clothing. 

But what's really cool about it is that it gives clothing a different dimension and feel to them rather than the traditional ink you find on garments.  Over the past few weeks, we have been looking into this material and whether it would be a good fit to consider on future clothing products.  Although this method of producing a final garment requires many different steps, the overall outcome is very unique.

New Products For Awesome Nation

May 21, 2017 - AN News, Fashion, New Products

Every new product needs to go through a development phase.  In order to introduce new products, we need to continuously test new designs until we are able to create a product which we are proud of and willing to wear ourselves before even considering offering it to everyone else. It's this continous need to perfect which will ensure we are able to come with quality items.

 

To help with the design phase, we've decided to test screen printing - which is the printing technique in which you pass ink through a pattern on a stencil-like mesh.

Creating The Awesome Box

April 21, 2017 - AN News

For the past year, we've kept a question open with regards to the type of packaging we would be interested in having for our beanies for any type of indoor display.  Traditionally, companies simply lay them out on a table or hang them on hooks, but we thought that there could be another way to do it - which could maybe be unique for our beanies. 

 

After debating whether to use a box, paper wrapping, plastic bags or a mix of these things, we decided to come up with our unique box.

Happy New Year to everyone!

Over the Christmas break I decided to work a bit (I know...I know...the problem is that when ideas and inspirations come to you, you never know when that will happen)....but at least I came up with some things I thought were really cool and interesting to share.

I wanted to create the design of our event banners for our Awesome Race concept. 

It's basically the thing that people will be looking for when they are competing in our race this year!
