Here are four sublimation trends to consider:
- Black text on white/natural substrates is popular for mugs, tote bags, and T-shirts intended to make a bold statement. Sassy or inspirational sayings that are identifiable work great for black-on-white color schemes.
- Purposeful utilization of white space offers a simple, clean, minimalist design that conveys a contemporary professionalism. This is the way to go for business signage and promotional items that will leave a lasting impression.
- Typography and hand-lettering goes hand-in-hand with the concept of black text on white substrates. In a world populated by opinions and noise, everyone loves being able to voice their thoughts through different mediums – and that includes through apparel and home décor.
- Marble/wood/brick patterns: take one quick look at Pinterest and you’ll see there is a noticeable rise in sublimating rustic wood or high-end marble patterns on regular substrates like mousepads and mugs. This trend may lend itself to the rise in personalized office spaces and low-cost décor.
