Hey guys! Your friendly neighborhood Renegades here, and can you believe that it's already well into February? WTF right? A lot of things happened this last month and downtown LA has been buzzin with activity. Lot's of people expressing themselves with printed materials (if you catch our drift). We're always happy to lend a hand to those who feel the need to wear their opinion on their shirt. We have a feeling we'll be printing more stuff like this in the coming months. Stay tuned. We also had a chance to get to ISS last month and check all the latest and greatest in garment decoration as well as taking in some seminars and classes to bone up on our skills. It was cool to see screen printers and other garment decorators from all over the country there in different capacities as well as some familiar faces. It was a very wet weekend
Printing sometimes can be really fun! We were hit up by a few friends to print their shirts for The Price Is Right. (everyone has to go at least once, right??). And, of course who else did they call than Print Renegades! (although our main focus is more about helping artists, start ups, restaurants, non profits and clothing brands, sometimes its fun to do something silly and fun).The print was actually pretty complicated, a 4 color screen print WITH Foil (and only 10 pieces). Normally our minimum order of 10 pieces is for 1 or 2 color designs, but we made an exception from 25 pcs (3-4 color prints) to 10 pieces for these kids.Printing with foil inside of a design, where not everything is getting foiled, is difficult because the ink around the part not being foiled has to be a different type of ink than the ink that is being foiled.
We recently printed for a really dope Los Angeles brand called Plain White Steez. Most of these prints are printed with soft waterbased ink, which make the prints vibrant yet feel like its still part of the garment. One of them was printed digitally with our Brother GT-361 digital garment printer. With digital printing, we can print up to 256 Million Billion Zillion colors. Pretty unlimited. All tees are printed on American Apparel goods, Made in LA!
For the release of their Winter line for Risk Vs Reward Clothing, they had a bunch of new designs they were releasing at this years Unique LA craft fair in Downtown LA and really need to find the right printer to really nail each and every design. The owner, Dean, is very particular about the sizing of each image, the inks used, the colors of each design and making sure that every single element is paid attention to and no corners are cut.Enter Print Renegades. Not only did we nail each of the designs, but we did it in record time, spending a few 18 hour days completing the designs so that they could ALL be ready for the start of the show on Saturday. Although it was rigorous and very difficult to work such long hours, the gratification that each of the designs brought as we completed them began to be the
Vannen Watches are what high end watches are to regular people: something extraordinary. They also collab with world renowned artists such as Bad Religion, Descendants, and Christopher Bettig to create unique limited edition watches They hit us up to do some quick merch for a trade show they were joining, and we agreed. The prints were discharge prints on black fashion fit Tshirts. And turned out amazingly! These are discharge inks that are soft to the touch and great to use on dark garments. Looking forward to the next one, gentleman!
At Print Renegades, we do WAY more than just regular printing. In our quest to create the perfect print shop, we realized that many clients were taking their goods to a different company to have many different things done, and that not only took a lot longer and cost more to do, but also was a massive headache for the customer as well. We have since developed our finishing services, which are a are a great way for us to take that headache away from our clients by keeping all elements of what a clothing brand needs here with US. Finishing your goods makes them retail ready and elevates your brands value. Brands like Risk Vs Reward and Arivul Co have trusted us to be their solution for printing, finishing, packaging and shipping of their goods. Really great brands, and even better with all finishing done in house!
