What is color blocking on polo shirts?

Like just about everything else in our world, there is constant change in fashion.  New styles, new colors, the changing taste from consumers all drive changes in fashion.  That is true as well for the custom logo embroidered apparel as well.  The latest trend in style in this market is something called color blocking.

In the past, designers used stripes or tipping as way to add color and boldness to polo shirts.  Now they have expanded the size of those accents from lines and stripes into blocks of color.

Color blocking pairs bold color combinations in high-contrast shades, color blocking creates an eye-catching style. And while it can look a bit like modern art, colors and combinations, color blocking can easily become a part of your wardrobe – and your business!

There are a number of exciting styles that for companies and organization to use to promote their business with color blocked items.

There are a number of areas where blocks of colors have been added to create bold designs on shirts.  Areas such as shoulders, side panels, under arms, etc. all make for good areas to add color blocking.

One of the great things about color blocking is the addition of colors that can be used to accent the logo embroidery on the shirt.
