DIY Summer Trends for Crafters

Trends are constantly changing and sometimes it can be hard, and expensive, to keep up. With a little creativity, a few crafting supplies, and some know-how, you can be trendy for less, with one of a kind pieces. You can also use these as an opportunity to sell personalized, trendy pieces to your friends!

Here are the four summer trends that you can make yourself!


1 – Floral prints are everywhere this year. Browse our selection of floral heat transfers or create your own. Once you finalize your image, use your heat press to create your wearable art. We carry the largest selection of heat presses so you will definitely find one that meets your needs.


2 – Another trend we’re seeing a lot of is graphic t-shirts. They’re good for the gym, errands, or even a night out- they also make great gifts! And with our extensive selection of heat transfer vinyl and heat transfers, the possibilities are endless. What will your shirt say?


3 – Personalized phone cases are great for distinguishing phones and showing off your personality. With sublimation you can create a custom image and print it on a basic phone cover. You can also print on charms, thick bangles, etc. Friendship bracelets for all ages are back in style, customize them for yourself or your customers.


4 – Subway art signs are still trending for the home and they make great DIY projects. Thanks to adhesive vinyl like our Oracal 651 or FDC you can create the perfect size sign for your home in colors that match your decor.
