Volleyball apparel

Volleyball apparel

We print for sports that run all year round.  Volleyball is played on the hardwood for nine months and then a break for sand volleyball in summer.  That pause is the only break that their jerseys and practice gear get.  In no other sport that we print for do the athletes end up throwing themselves on the floor with such frequency. Our volleyball apparel is top notch and needs to be because of how hard volleyball players are on their gear.

We have to keep that in mind when we print stuff for them to play and practice in.  Sometimes they may want glitter on their practice shirts but this should be done very sparingly because the glitter ink is actually transparent with pieces of ground up glitter flakes in it.  The transparent ink is rubbery and can actually cause the athletes to not slide across the floor very easily.  It may be funny to watch but it can’t be fun when you wad up on the floor and don’t slide.

A glitter vinyl can solve this problem, it comes in a large variety of colors now (yes, those pastels are glitter) and has a dry texture that does not grab.  There are some things that will need to be factored into the art but such is the cost of fashion right?
