The Top Ten

1 Superheroes Prints

Marvel and DC have made comics superhero a reality. They have now become a part of many kids lives. We can already see the growing demand in superhero action figures and t-shirts. We think this is going to reach a new height. We are likely to see more of superhero t-shirts, backpacks, action figures, kids items and more. Superhero trend had hit a record high when the Spiderman movie by Sam Raimi came out. And, now Marvels and DC have nearly released around 20 odd movies based on real superheroes, so the trend of t shirts based on superheroes are going to rise. - sidwilkins

3 Luminescent Prints

Luminescent prints are the prints of future. These holographic designs will transport you to a different place, so to speak. These have become exceedingly popular in the past few years. You are going to see more of this in the future. It combined with futuristic designs will bring a fusion of reality and fantasy which hints towards the idea of psychedelic and dreamscape. Mythological characters like the Roman God “Zeus”, or the underworld king “Hades” will make luminescent prints look more surreal than ever. - sidwilkins

4 Black and White Prints

Black and white prints have always been and will be in trend. Two classic colors fused into one to bring out interesting effects on t-shirts. The black and white contrast creates a spacious appeal. Such contrast also creates the most head Turner effects. Letters in white spacing or bold black colors are both effective when creating contrasting effects. This may not be a new trend, but we are going to see more of it in 2017 and 2018. What’s more? creating a black and white print is fast and far more cost-effective. - sidwilkins

5 80’s and 90’s Prints

Not everybody likes vintage t-shirts, but those who do, they love it. It’s great to have a t-shirt that looks 20 years old both in appearance and print. Faded tees are in big demand nowadays and in the coming year, we will only get to see more of it. Go for softer shades which will make your tees look more genuinely vintage. This is a great opportunity for discharge inks in screen printed t-shirt to get a worn-out look. - sidwilkins

No wonder we see more of these designs in the runways by famous designers. We believe this is soon going to hit the mainstream. - sidwilkins

8 Abstract Painting Prints

T-shirts printed with paintings have been around for quite some time, but now it's time for some abstract paintings. We believe it is also the time for some Renaissance art on t-shirts too. Patterned accents attract more attention to the t-shirts elements that are usually ignored. For examples abstract prints on the sleeves, pockets, neckline, hems etc. - sidwilkins

9 Bold Letter Prints

This is yet another simplistic design T-shirts which are going to be in chic in coming days. Typographical prints with quotes and slogans symbolized rebellion and a strong attitude. We think these street style contemporary design will also hit the runways. The best part is these prints use up less ink and is less labor intensive, plus it brings out the character of the wearer. - sidwilkins
