Free Resources to get your brand started

We wanted to offer a few resources that you can use to start working on your apparel line!

We know that getting started means you need more tools in your tool shed to be efficient. We created easy-to-use templates that you can customize and use each time for your orders with us. In addition, we added important need-to-know guides that will help you in learning about starting an apparel line and creating your own brand.

FREE DOWNLOAD Pantone Color Guide
Get your hands on CAS’s PDF Color Swatch Chart, meticulously crafted to feature the trendiest colors requested daily. This valuable resource will assist you in choosing the perfect hues for your brand and streamlining the ordering process with production. Globally acknowledged, Pantone, or PMS, sets the standard for color precision.

When you look at a color on-screen, it looks entirely different than a color printed on a piece of paper using ink. Why? Because the RGB color spectrum and HTML hexadecimal model are used only on screens. They work by adding light to a dark screen. CMYK and Pantone work by subtracting the light reflected off a white piece of paper. Since you’re printing your design on paper (or cloth or whichever material you choose), it’s important to design using CMYK or a Pantone color right from the start.
