CHA Summer 2013 | School Colors: Lion Brand, Clearsnap

If you are looking to create team color items, you have some new options now thanks to Lion Brand and Clearsnap’s product introductions at Create-n-Connect in Las Vegas.

Lion Brand

Fall means football season, and bundling up for games. With the new school color yarns from Lion Brand, you can make your own hats, mittens, scarves, and even sweaters to wear to root on your favorite college team! The yarns are the latest additions to Lion’s Hometown USA yarn line. The bulky weight yarns are 100% acrylic, and available in 12 color schemes.

These two color schemes are familiar to any Michigan resident!

Clearsnap

If ink is more of what you need in your school colors, ColorBox has something for you! At Create-n-Connect, they released a selection of NCAA-licensed items.

First up is the stamps – two different versions for each school in the line, a tin set and a rollagraph version.

But of course you need inks to go with stamps, and there’s two different versions of those as well. There’s a dye inkpad (left, below) and a tattoo ink inkpad (right, below)  for temporary use on skin. Combine the tattoo pad with the stamp set and you can create festive game day face wear!
