May 8, 2024

Hard to believe we’re already closing in on the end of the first half of 2024. And what a year it’s been! Any doubts as to the strength of the decorated-apparel industry these days are not only feeling like ancient history, but the future looks equally bright, with materials and equipment suppliers reporting strong demand across the board. If the evidence of the first two Impressions Expos of 2024 in Long Beach, California, and Atlantic City, New Jersey are any indication, decorators large and small have also continued to expand both their product lines and their capacities in general, with a seemingly endless supply of newbies coming into the industry.

Similarly, on the blanks side, the items on offer continue to improve with respect to everything from comfort and style to the sustainable processes being used to produce them. No longer are consumers willing to settle for any old grungy T-shirt or hoodie. They want quality, comfort and good looks, garments they’re going to want to wear over and over again. And the industry has responded in kind.

In other words, as was the case in 2023, there’s never been a better time to check out the industry’s latest and greatest at Impressions Expo Fort Worth, set to take place Oct. 24-26.
