 Storyboard Print Concepts


Prints are personal, so when adding prints to a collection, look at trend concepts, color theories, line history. Take a look at best print sellers for the current line as well as the competition. Being on trend with prints can be a too early, to late concept. Set the tone trending prints by knowing the customer base the collection will target. Story boarding Print Concepts a season ahead it the best way to see what works for buyers and what doesn't. Create Mood Boards that define what the next season will be to make the collections stronger when print concepts are trending strong in the market place.

Let print boards create the conversation for next seasons trends.
