The product train keeps on rolling with two new additions to the women’s line of apparel available on the Redbubble marketplace: the Contrast Tank and the Graphic T-shirt Dress. You can now add work for both using the handy-dandy pre-release tool in your shops in advance of their launches (coming soon, we’ll let you know). In case you don’t know, we’ve added a feature to the Manage Portfolio section of your shops that allows you to add work to products before they’re available for sale to customers. This give you a nice way to promote your works right away.
So hop to it. Here’s some info.
Why is this thing called the contrast tank? No one knows. Except us. There’s a contrast in materials the front and back panels are made from. Hence, the Contrast Tank. The front panel, which shows off your artwork, is 100% polyester chiffon and the back is made from 96% polyester and 4% elastane cotton jersey that comes in either black or white. Your work appears, full-bleed on the front panel of the tank, almost like magic. We say almost like magic because it’s nothing like magic. The process is called sublimation printing, where the artwork is printed on paper and then laid onto the fabric. Using high heat the ink will turn into vapour and penetrate into the fabric so the print doesn’t crack or fade. It means the chiffon retains its silky handfeel and maximum comfort. This product is similar in look and feel to the recently launched Chiffon Tops except it’s a bit longer, and it lacks sleeves, because you know, it’s a tank top.
Like the Graphic T-shirts for men, the graphic t-shirt dress features full-bleed sublimation (there’s that word again) across the entire front panel, but in this case, this thing is a dress. So you totally don’t need pants. Which is great, right? The front panel is made from 96% polyester and 4% elastane, and the back panel is 100% cotton jersey that comes in solid black.
