  Beach Towels

While at the beach, the majority of people (60%) enjoy doing nothing and relaxing (as compared to being active). As these beachgoers lounge on their various types of embroidered beach towels, their attention will likely turn to the towels themselves. To promote a positive customer experience, many hotels and resorts invest in custom, branded beach towels for these guests. 

Many of our hospitality customers want to know how many colors they can include on our various types of embroidered beach towels. Before we answer that question, it's important to point out that there's an important difference between "can" and "should." 

Most graphic designers will tell you to stick to two to three colors in your designs. Of course, there are plenty of other things to take into consideration when it comes to beach color embroidery and design. If you have questions about the use of color in custom towels, here is some color information that you might find helpful. 

The 3 Color Rule

If two colors feels limiting, that's not always the case. A creative graphic designer can do some incredible work using only two colors. For instance, see the summer-friendly ice cream cone design featured here: Skysail White Beach Towel.

This creative effect was achieved using just two colors: blue and brown. 

How Many Colors Can Be Included?

It depends on the types of embroidered beach towels that the buyer wants, but anything from one to three colors and full color printed options are available. Additionally, custom artwork can also be designed and printed in bulk in order for companies to expand their brand and logo awareness. 

Full Color

This is the exception to the three color rule, as photo printed towels must be able to hit the full range of primary colors. Of course, keep in mind that more colors equals higher costs. Full color printed towels can truly look amazing, however, and will certainly make a positive impression on your beach-going guests. Consider these full color printed styles that are just as visually appealing as they are eccentric:
