Support your team with these volleyball ties

Get ready for any game day with a volleyball patterned tie in your school colors.

Perfect idea for a coach, team members, parent or other fans. It gives you a nice splash of your team color and is sport-appropriate.

I currently have three different patterns that come in school color options. And these come in 14 different colors such as black, gold, purple, orange and red. You can see the wider range down below.

One of the patterns is like the black one above with evenly spaced volleyballs in white over a dark background. There’s a subtle pattern over the background that looks like a wood gym floor.

A second is shown here to the right in purple. It’s a square argyle-style pattern with white volleyballs in the solid purple blocks and a square in the white blocks. The entire pattern has a subtle gray background of a volleyball net. If you’re feeling brave, this design can be customized further by going into the design too and changing the background color.

The third school color option has random volleyballs in different sizes. The background has a large-sized subtle chevron pattern that blends into the color.

I do have one other volleyball tie at the moment. Well, two actually. It’s a sketch version of volleyballs in neon colors on either a black or a white background. Great if you’re having to support numerous teams with different colors and just want a standard volleyball tie.

School Color Volleyball Neck Ties

Watercolor lacrosse sticks blanket

It’s a lovely surprise when a design just takes off and makes people happy.

(OK, I know. I shouldn’t be surprised. I should expect people will like my stuff, right? :-))

This particular lacrosse design is one of those that has just taken off, particularly the blanket pictured here. It all started when one person bought the blanket to use as an auction item. And it’s just been a popular item ever since.

The image started as a photo, which I tweaked and turned into a watercolor print. A row of different colored lacrosse sticks are lined up on the green grass of the field. You can personalize it with your name at Zazzle.

This particular design is available on a ton of different items at Zazzle (see below) as well as at Redbubble.

Bright Diagonal Lacrosse Sticks Pattern

I got into a kick recently with creating patterns themed for volleyball, cheerleading and lacrosse. And I really love this one particular lacrosse pattern, so I wanted to share it today.

It’s diagonal sticks in a variety of bright tropical colors like orange, lime green and turquoise. The two products you see here are available at Redbubble, among the many I offer there. The table at the bottom of this post shows options over at Zazzle, where I have a couple of different colors, although this post is just about this one particular color.

At Zazzle, you can change out the background color if you like; I’d recommend black or dark gray. It’s a nice change and the bright colors will really stand out against a dark background.

Lacrosse neck ties in fun patterns

Neck ties make great gifts, right? And if you’re gifting a coach or lacrosse fan, a tie with a lacrosse pattern on it makes even more sense.

I’ve taken the various patterns I’ve created for lacrosse and applied them to ties at Zazzle.

There are colorful patterns like the one shown at the top here involving stripes and lacrosse sticks. That particular pattern comes in four different color options, including neon pink!

If you’re less interested in fun patterns, check out the simple school color option. It’s a repeating pattern of white lacrosse sticks with a faint stripe in the background. It comes in a ton of different school colors and if you can’t find yours, you can go in and change the background to what you need.

Since it’s a school color, it’s a great choice for a team coach or for the entire team to wear when they head out to away games. (If your school requires the team to dress up. Do they still do that?

The ties are polyester fabric and can be printed on both sides. There’s a small upcharge for the printing on the back, but to me it’s well worth it as otherwise it’s left white and that just doesn’t work most of the time.

Face masks for back to school

If your school is opening for in-person classes, masks are going to be a given for everyone.

So you might as well look at adding a few to your current collection that related to school and school activities.

I have a very, very, very large collection of appropriate ones to choose from, mostly bulked up by the fact that I offer 14 school color options.

Class of 2021 and senior class

You can start with the ones specific to the senior class, like the one at the top of this post. That particular design is available in all the school colors and you can personalize it with your school name as well as the year. (So, unless you’re planning on failing a grade, that one can work for 2022, 2023, etc., as well as the class of 2021.)

There are many others that don’t have a customizable year, which actually means they can be more fancy as far as the design goes. It’s a bit of a trade-off. I have similar design options available at Redbubble as well.

Sports themes and school colors

By far the largest group I have is going to be those that revolve around specific sports, most of which come in the line of 14 school colors.

The simple soccer pattern on black you see here is indicative of the main style I offer. It comes in soccer, cheer, basketball, football and baseball.

There are also more complex designs for cheerleading, volleyball and lacrosse, some of which come in bright colors that aren’t school related. There is a simple and basic pattern of white lacrosse sticks, though, similar to the one above.

Mascot school pride

Then we have the school pride designs. Due to the nature of the design, they do come in a more limited color palette, but I think I’ve covered the most common one.

Half the colors come on a white background with the word PRIDE in black; the other half in reverse with a black background and the word PRIDE in white. This allows the different color choices to stand out better.

You can customize the design with your school mascot in large script and the school name underneath. And if you feel ambitious, you can go into the design tool and change colors to fit your particular taste or combination.

Face Masks for School

These are shown in order of popularity and I only have 21 choices shown here. You seriously don’t want to wait for all the options I have to load. I have well over 450 designs/colors for you to choose from!

Colorful paw print tattoos

This particular design is so very basic, but that’s also part of what makes it so perfect!

It’s a sheet of temporary tattoos of solid colored paw prints. They’re great for a pet event or if your school mascot is a cat (tiger, lion, wildcat, bobcat, panther, cougar) or canine (bulldog, wolf, greyhound, husky, terrier). You could probably be creative in interpreting other animals that the prints might work for.

I have each sheet set up with an assortment of tattoos. The six large paws are approximately 2″ in size, the eight medium 1.5″ and the 16 small 1″. They come in green, purple, burnt orange, red, blue, orange, black and maroon, as well as a black paw print version. And except for the last, you can go into the design tool at Zazzle to change the colors and even rescale the sizes if you like. (Note that I don’t have lighter colors like yellow, gold or silver because those won’t show up well as a tattoo. Gotta stick with the darker/bolder shades.)

The sheets are about letter size and the non-colored area will be clear so your skin shows through. You’ll have to cut apart each of the tattoos. They’re designed to stay on for a few days and wipe off with baby oil.

Lacrosse Parent Shirts

lacrosse shirts for mom and dad. 14 school colors available.

Get yourself outfitted for the new lacrosse season with a shirt for mom or dad. (Or nana or uncle or whomever!)

I have several designs of shirts I’ve created for you to customize to show your support for your favorite lacrosse player. All use lacrosse sticks and balls as design elements and come in a variety of colors so you can find one to match your team.

One design allows you to customize with the name of your team, your player number and then the phrase “Senior Lacrosse Mom” underneath. That can be changed to a different school year – sophomore, junior – and to be mom or dad or whatever you like. Change the whole phrase to your team’s fight cry.

The second design uses large scale sticks – again with the option to customize with your player’s number on the ball – and “SENIOR LACROSSE DAD” in the center. That can be personalized to whatever message you like or to change the school year and relationship.

Almost all of the designs are available in red, orange, yellow, purple, green, blue, gray, black, forest green, navy, maroon, burnt orange, gold and powder blue. A couple include the lighter colors like silver gray, gold and powder blue on a dark shirt.

School Colors Chevron Volleyball Fabric

purple volleyball fabric

I wouldn’t say I’m huge into surprises, but I definitely enjoy pleasant ones. Which is exactly where I am with the various fabrics I’ve designed. I never would have thought they would have taken off like they have.

Two things come to mind as to why. One is that I try to stick with things I don’t see often on fabric and the other being the surge of people making their own masks. (As a side note, I do have these patterns also on masks you can just buy, so you don’t have to be able to sew to enjoy a unique mask.)

One of the reasons I got into designing products again was that one of nieces was a volleyball player and it was next to impossible to find volleyball items that weren’t pink or ugly. Now, we know I’m not going to be doing ugly, so my additional focus was on making my designs in a wide range of school colors.

And given how many I have, my second surprise with fabric is how popular the purple is. Well, at least I was surprised until I thought about it and realized it’s probably not a school color you can easily find. Plus, it’s girly without being too girly, right?

Zazzle prints seven different fabric types – cotton, poplin, linen, etc. – and you can get them in swatch, fat quarter or by the yard (up to 10 continuous yards). They’re printed with colorfast pigment inks that won’t fade.

Below are the colors my chevron volleyball fabric comes in. Enjoy!

Forest Green Cheerleader Pattern

Yay team!!! I’ve been on a pattern kick lately, creating them in all the school colors I offer.

This is the latest in the cheerleader patterns I’ve created. Black and forest green pom-poms and megaphones plus extra large word “cheer” and hearts. All with a soft gray grid in the background.

So far, I’ve only gotten this one posted and only on Redbubble. I know, I know. But it takes time when you make 14 different color versions of a pattern to get them all posted in all the places.

Until then, I’m especially proud of how they look on the socks at Redbubble. I’ve also placed it on the new backpack and duffle bag. Check them out!
