AMB3R Creative: The Process From Start to Finish

While starting a new project can seem overwhelming at times, it’s our job to reassure you that at AMB3R, we make things as smooth and as seamless as possible. Our company specializes in custom design (we understand that not everyone enjoys creating logos. etc), so we’re here to help guide you through this process. The first step towards starting your project with AMB3R Creative is to submit a ‘start project’ form on our website. The project form will provide us with information such as your company name, number of items needed, your budget, contact information and the date you need your final products by.

The overview of your project will look a little something like this:

When working with AMB3R, you’ll be provided the opportunity to work with a professional graphic designer if needed. Our in-house designer will spend extra time working with you to make sure your product design comes out perfectly. Let’s say for example that you’ve created your own custom line of spirits, but you have no idea what you want your bottle and label to look like. This is where we come in to help. We can provide you with examples of previous work we’ve done, while also giving you helpful suggestions as to what colors and fonts look best for your product. Sketches of ideas and various designs will then be created. Think of this as a rough draft of what your end design will look like. Not yet perfected, but definitely a good start. What starts as a simple sketch on a paper book, then turns into a graphic design on the computer. Sketches by hand allow for the designer to make quick and easy changes without having to go into the computer to change the image. Once the image has been given the go ahead, the designer will then transfer that image to the computer where more details will be added.

We will then consult with you on what type of screen printing, threading, stamps, private labels or specialty inks you want to include on your product label. Once decided, we will go ahead and apply those choices to the overall design. The before and after of this process can be viewed below:

Now to the exciting part - Once your design has been finished and approved, we will send the image and product details to production. The print house will both print and ship all your products directly to you. Your final result may look a little something like this:

At AMB3R, we understand that the idea of creating a new line of products for your company can quickly become overwhelming. That’s why we try our best to make sure every step of the process is extremely clear and straightforward. We don’t move on to the next step of a project before making sure you’re satisfied with each change made to the design beforehand. Next time you’re interested in changing up your logo or creating holiday pullovers for your company, we hope you think of us.

Ensure Your Graphic Tee Has Meaning

Lessons from The Italian Trend 


Fantastic news for our industry: 70s vibe graphic tees are making a comeback. From retro band tees to vintage logo tees this trend has been a long time coming in street wear, but there’s a new trend bubbling up in printed apparel that nobody expected. Who could have guessed the gods of luxury fashion, the Italians, would inspire an array of graphic tee designs using their cities, beautiful language, and cuisine. Luxury designer brands such as Gucci and Dolce and Gabbana along with more accessible brands like Forever 21 and H&M, sporting the trend, are resonating with customers love of travel, food, and style.

How Meaning is Created


Prior to joining the team here at AMB3R, I was extremely lucky to spend four months studying abroad in Florence, Italy.  So when I stumbled on this craze through influencer Giada’s recent blog post about her favorite Italian graphic tees, I finally found a tee that meant something to me. These tees could be a way to remember the gelato flavors, a certain city, certain word, or even the amazing food I experienced in Italy. Because the tee offers meaning about the Italian culture, it resonates with travelers as well as those who plan and dream to venture there.     


What Can We Learn from This?


Consumers purchase graphic tees because they mean something personal. Fashion is about expression, people wear what they wear to show the world “this is me.” Here at AMB3R, we want to help you design and create apparel that means something to your customers. People care about a brand for three reasons: love for your product, the experience with your brand, or a desire to share a value you have. By creating a design that showcases these attributes of your brand, you can develop a tee that your customers will want to wear to show the world that they are a part of what you are a part of, and stand for what you stand for, all the while increasing your company’s brand awareness.

Womens Graphic T-shirts Style Guide for Any Occasion

Too many graphic tees find their way into dark corners of our closets or are flung into a spring cleaning donation bin to be transported to the nearest thrift store - where badly designed tee shirts go to die. We’ve all had a giveaway shirt or impulse buy Gildan tee that simply becomes a useless piece in our wardrobe. Many people only keep a tee to paint their house or wear to bed. This is heartbreaking, but understandable as we definitely know how poorly some screen printed apparel can be designed and produced. Our mission is to create fashion forward designs on trending and high quality shirts so that they are worn over and over again.

We believe an incredible graphic tee can live a fulfilling life life without fearing the thrift store, and actually be the flare of a great outfit, casual or professional. If you’re in doubt, let us show you how it’s done!  

Let’s start big. Professional. The casual notion of graphic t-shirts may be why many don’t make the cut when getting your work outfit together in the morning. Next time you miss the alarm and have a morning of chaos - turn to a blazer, the cure all be all of outerwear. Pair your fave blazer with a graphic t-shirt and slim fit jeans or matching dress pants and you will be slaying the game. Feel free to dress this cool-girl look up or down with heels and jewelry or flats and sunnies!

However, it’s summer now and there’s nothing wrong with rocking that relaxed style. We have a couple looks in mind for that too. Have you ever thought about pairing a graphic t-shirt with the classic staple pencil skirt? This creates a more casual but still boss-girl look that could go seamlessly from work to happy hour. This look was featured at Lollapalooza last year along with many other graphic tee outfit ideas. Another great option could be a pleated midi skirt for a sheek vintage look. A midi skirt adds more coverage and still has the high waisted belt line perfect for tucking the tee in and flatters any figure. If skirts don’t suit your style, fun dress pants have been trending recently. Looking at the variety of dress pant options available from  wide cut to skinny leg with an array of waistlines, a graphic tee can dress down a serious dress pant while adding a creative twist.

Out of the office and into the weekend, it’s time to chill out and get comfy. High waisted jeans came back around 2015 and are still popular summer bottoms - from boyfriend jeans to paper-bag shorts. Both can be tastefully paired with graphic t-shirts- tucked in, cropped or even tied creating a stylish, effortless look. Boyfriend jeans make for a great compliment to a graphic t-shirt adding a slouchy street-wear style. Wearing an oversized t-shirt can also add an even more casual, but still cool-girl vibe. When it really heats up this summer you may reach for shorts; we recommend reaching for high waisted jean-shorts as a casual complementary garment. But if you want to stand out this season high waisted paper-bag shorts, often with a front bow tie, are making an entrance. And, we noticed these are yet another fun way to tuck in a graphic tee with added style from the unique waist line on these shorts.

We love learning about current trends to incorporate into the apparel we help you create. We know how to design promotional merchandise and curate the best pieces to print on so your customers will recognize these styles as they have seen them in retail, creating a piece that you can sell for more money with a higher return on investment as they will be worn time after time. The blank garments we print on can be classic style t-shirts but we also have unique trending styles that are updated monthly.
