Tone-on-tone garments are in sync with current trends. In this article, we will show you how you can create a unique and stylish jersey that will stand out in a crowd.
When you imagine a tone-on-tone garment, you first think of some form of monochrome implementation within the logos. But basically, it is like this, black is not always black and grey is not always grey. In the end, tone-on-tone combinations are always a collection of different shades. There is never a single colour, due to the different materials that are used. The jersey fabric and different logos, can be implemented in many other variants in addition to flock, silicone or embroidery. All of this, affects the colour scheme and must be taken into account when developing the jerseys.
For more contrast and more options, you can use numerous colours from a colour family. Blacks, anthracite or various dark grey tones are also suitable. It is important to note that the colours must of course be well coordinated, equally it doesn't always have to be just the black jersey. It can certainly be more colourful, for example, blue logos can also be implemented on a blue jersey with minimally contrasting colours, or a red jersey matched with deep red logos. There are almost no limits to the possibilities.
Not at all - the light nuances make extremely stylish designs and every jersey is unique and fans love it. It's that unique look that offers more creativity and variety than you might think at first. Even if violent bursts of colour are not necessarily wanted in such jerseys, strong accents can also be deliberately set.
For example, the sponsor logo, sleeve logo or the authentic label, can be combined with a strong matt & gloss effect. Or the club logo is implemented as a hybrid logo, for example, a silicone heat transfer printing technique with a textile base material. Everything is allowed, as long as the colours stay within the colour family. And even if the colour is out of line; the main thing is that it’s pleasing to the eye and integrates with the overall concept. But we can guarantee one thing: Tone-on-tone jerseys are never boring.
What we’re really trying to say is: Make a statement. It's not like you’ll always want to offer a new tone-on-tone jersey in your fan shop. With this kind of jersey, you are of course taking a more economical view. So the design should rock!! You only have one chance to thrill your fans. Therefore, pay attention to the quality of the implementation and give enough thought to the planning. Take your outfitter and refiner on board from the beginning of the project. Because not everything that is already in your head or that looks good in the animation, can later be easily implemented in the finishing. A large number of different logo qualities are often used, which must first be tested in complex application and wash tests before production begins so ensure you always plan and allow enough time for the implementation.
