Ommegang Umbrella Printing
One of the best parts of our job at Print Renegades is the ability we have to work with a vast mix of different projects and people. Most other print shops (in our eyes) basically do the same types of things everyday. Because we are always so open to taking on new and interesting projects, this gives us the ability to venture down a new and exciting road weekly (and what makes our print shop so unique).
Last week we had a chance to work with our old Belgian beer making friends, Ommegang. (we have printed for them before actually). They had a rush project that they needed help with, and we were able to assist them in making their dreams become a reality. They were doing a festival in Santa Monica and needed some umbrellas printing with their fancy logo on all 4 panels of each umbrella. This we had never done before, but we took it on and nailed it perfectly.
We used a specialized catalyst that we were able to mix into our standard ink to make it permanent on Nylon, and also makes it be able to endure outdoor weather on a more permanent basis. The print was a fairly simple one color design, and although measuring and making the print straight seemed to be the most complicated part of the job, they turned out pretty rad!
