Compression Sleeve Design

I am thrilled with the end result of my contest.

I would highly recommend Contest Design to anyone who is looking for creative designs at a very affordable price

Project description

Needed is a full graphic design for compression sleeves. We will begin producing these for sale to kids 5yrs old and up as well as adults. The compression sleeves fit on sports players arms (from wrist to mid-bicep)and need to be designed to be worn on either left or right arm. Design must be sport specific (Baseball or Football) and must completely cover the entire sleeve. The only exception to this is we want a small spot (on top of arm just above the wrist) that a ball shape will be left blank (so players number can be added after initial production. Ball should be sport specific (Baseball shape for baseball design, football shape for football) Sleeves will all be white in color with graphics printed by sublimation. The approx. size of the sleeves is as follows: At the wrist, the circumference is 18cm At the bicep, the circumference is 27cm The total length is 45cm ATTENTION PLEASE READ BELOW: Folks, perhaps I was not clear enough in the description of what I was looking for. If so, sorry. I need designs for Baseball players or football players. Kids to adults. I don't just want some colors, I want designs that are baseball or football related. I'm looking for someone to be creative here. These are sleeves that players wear before, DURING, and after their games. Must be COOL looking, hip, etc Remember, the sleeve fabric on all designs will be white and YOUR designs will be sublimated onto the sleeves I've included a few pictures that might give you some ideas of what you might be able to use to create what we are looking for

Comments

  • could you add end zone area on cuff end so team name could be added to the end zone area?
    • Okay,I'll work on that. Thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it!

    • Okay, will do! I'll have that out tomorrow morning! I'll work on the baseball version too!

    • Thank you

    • Just added the end zone revision!Let me know what you think.

    • Just added a team name and 2 color variations! Let me know your thoughts.

    • I just added a new baseball variation #11! Let me know what you think!

    • Hoping you can remove the 10th inning box so I can keep this one in the mix

    • I'll try and put that revision in tomorrow..........................

    • The end zone/name is on entry #10......................

    • Looks great, thanks a bunch for the adjustments

    • I just added the Baseball sleeve without the 10th inning #30.

    • Thank you

    • Thank you!

  • I like but I believe we need more life like designs rather than character or line drawings to get kids excited to wear them
  • Thanks for the entry but this is not what I am looking for. Please see the sample photos I posted in the brief section. I want more real life pics and such I think rather than characters and line art
  • Not wow'ed yet but I kinda like this one. Little worried about what it will look like in colors other than green tho. Remember, I will need 7 or 8 different base colors, but this has some promise I think thanks
    • Thanks for the feedback! I just added a revision with a tech pattern!

    • Nice!

  • I added a few photos to give you a few ideas of what you might use to create the look we need. Please take a look at the photos for creative ideas
  • I am looking for sport specific design, baseball or football. The entire sleeve MUST BE created using sport specific art. Please look at the sample picture posted on my brief showing tattoo sleeves. I want something like this but all baseball or football Thanks for your submission and please try again
  • I need sport specific design. Baseball or football, you decide, but the design MUST BE all about the sport
  • Folks, perhaps I was not clear enough in the description of what I was looking for. If so, sorry. I need designs for Baseball players or football players. Kids to adults. I don't just want some colors, I want designs that are baseball or football related. I'm looking for someone to be creative here. I don't have the answers or I would have just shown a designer what I wanted and got it done. These are sleeves that players wear before, DURING, and after their games. Must be COOL looking, hip, etc Remember, the sleeve fabric on all designs will be white and YOUR designs will be sublimated onto the sleeves
  • hi ch. johnconner I am working on your project I will send to you as well as possible soon thanks babar786
  • yeah , cool - as clear as you can get john. thanks for the input :)
    • My pleasure, looking forward to seeing your revision

    • great! when done will upload. the stitching and lace effect might take a little while to achieve, please be patient.

    • of course

  • An idea: How about a sleeve that looks like its made of leather (like a football) including the laces. That might be an eye-catching design if done right. Just thinking out loud
  • Hello johnconner, thanks for your reply and comment. YES ! - I see what you mean, will make some adjustments and upload when done ....... so you want white bkgrnd and orange highlights ? regards - blocpuzz
    • Not necessarily. keep in mind that the sleeves (garment) will be white. To complete the printing process on the green design you did, we would print what's green only on the white sleeve. On the Blue design, we would print the blue, and the orange and allow the garment color (white) to come through where the number 7 is. is that clear as mud now?

  • I like. Wonder if you can make the designs (currently in white and orange) look like stitches on a baseball or even laces on a football? That would better connect them to sport specific?
  • Designers, I've been told our brief and posts might have confused some people so I want to try to clear it up. We are looking for ONE design to be sublimation printed onto white compression sleeves. We may print the selected design in a few different colors but we only need one design. This contest is guaranteed and we will be selecting a winner and awarding the prize money. Put your creative minds to work and help us find that perfect design. I've seen your work and know you can dazzle us. Thanks
  • Still looking for some creative entries
  • I like this. Thanks for making adjustments as requested. If I could get you to tweak this a bit further. Please make the baseball version white with red stitches. Also, is it possible for you to make the football version look more like the leather on a football rather than just the gold color? Could you use actual football skin pics to make it look more realistic? I think we might have a winner if so.
    • Thanks John, appreciate your comments. will make adjustments as per your message and upload when complete. regards - blocpuzz :)

    • thanks

  • Thanks for adding the football and baseball to each design. I was hoping for football laces and baseball seams to be used in place of the current white or orange in your design. Sorry if I wasn't clear enough
    • Yes John, you've been pretty specific with your messages. this is another option, a variation of my first submission. Once I get inspiration, I usually go with it then move on ....... will do a variation with laces and stiching and send when done. thanks for your input - blocpuzz

    • Thank you sir!!!

    • Hi John, have a look at #14 and I need your thoughts please. thanks - blocpuzz

  • I like this one
  • I like the concept but not sure it has the "wow" factor we are looking for. Could you remove the 10th inning from the scoreboard so we can keep this one in the running
  • Thank you for the submission but we are looking for sport specific (baseball or football) designs
