Chevron: A New Angle on Designer Heat Transfer Vinyl

chevron_newAs all of you already know, Coastal likes to stay hip with the newest fashions and designs that are currently on the market! Can you guess what the new, hot pattern is this year? KIDDING.

EasyWeed is Easily the Easiest!

We used EasyWeed Stretch on these boxing shorts to create a durable and stretchy design!

Of all my favorite ways to make cool t-shirts here working at Coastal Business, I am especially partial to vinyl transfers. They’re light in hand, with great durability, and come in a wide variety of colors, textures, and even special effects to really make a t-shirt design POP at a customer. And when your mind is on your design, it’s nice to have a product like EasyWeed to take the additional guesswork out of creating your garment.
