Design Your Scarf
First, let’s talk design. This is the fun part! With so many options available to create a custom, one-of-a-kind scarf, YOU are in total control! Choose your material, color schemes, and logo to make your scarves stand out in the crowd. If you need a little help on the creative side, have no fear! The team at Diehard Scarves will work with you to come up with a variety of design options.
CHOOSE YOUR MESSAGING
First off, you need to decide what your scarf will say. Your team name is the minimum but what else? Do you have a motto or saying that you’d like to add? Remember, depending on which scarf style you choose, you have more than one side of the scarf to play with.
INCORPORATE YOUR LOGO
Does your team have a logo or mascot? Go ahead and add it to your design to really set your scarves apart! The Premier Knit scarf is the best option for adding unique artwork to both sides of your scarves.
SELECT YOUR COLORS
Be bright, be bold, and be seen! Show off your team colors when designing your custom scarf. Does your team logo have an array of colors you’d like to add throughout the scarf? No problem! Add up to 6 thread colors on your design, or let your color-creativity run wild with the Sleekprint Scarf!
