Each year when I travel to trade shows, I look for the latest trends and ways to share them with apparel decorators that may have missed the show. One of the hottest trends in bling I noticed at this year’s trade shows was the expansion of sequins and holographic finishes into the booming world of bling.
The bling marketplace is exploding with decorators looking for ways to bring a unique, iridescent sparkle to their customers’ designs. Those decorators using sequins are seeing a high demand for sequins in holographic colors to give their customers something different. If you aren’t in the sequin market yet or if you just want to give your customers a new bling, try CAD-CUT® Glitter Flake™ Hologram Silver and Gold heat transfer materials. These new shades of silver and gold have a unique holographic sparkle in them that shines multiple colors, making them the preferred choice over basic silver and gold.
The colors speak for themselves – take a look at this video to see these colors in action and ways to use them in your shop. Are you ready for the next hot trend in bling?
