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
Download CAS’s PDF Color Swatch Chart that we have created based on the most popular colors that are requested on a daily basis. This chart will help you in selecting colors for your brand and when placing an order with production. Pantone or commonly known as PMS is recognized globally.
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.
