Our friends at Beyond 5 are really stepping up their game. Driven by the roots of groups like "One Direction", these guys are just as talented as they inspiring. When they play live, their syncopated stylings are similar to how sports teams play together, being able to act as one unit but still sounding amazing as young kids do these days.They recently embarked on a tour around Asia, just in time to get back to a sold out show in their hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah. We had the chance to print a few hundred shirts of different colors, sizes and decorations. All the garments used were 50/50 blend tees.Each print was a 2 color print of their logo, some of which were just standard prints and some that were foiled. Soft waterbased inks were required, but the blend tees made it impossible to discharge. Also, since they wanted only a part
The guys at Awaken The Empire are doing something new. Their sound fusing of Alternative Rock and Electronic Noise is avant garde, and they are ready for a stadium seat of live shows!! Look out for the new release by Awaken The Empire, single out now!!Damien called us, specifically requested something "different, on black shirts, that would turn heads". We showed them some samples of our metallic prints, and they loved it. Silver Metallic printing (specifically on dark garments) really brings out a semi mechanical yet elegant feel. Something that is definitely unique, and very recognizable. Put on your shades, here comes the bright light!
Dip Dye Tshirts is quickly becoming a trend in the fashion world. The fact that they are handmade, created with pantone colors that are chosen by the designer, and create a cool unique feel are all reasons why we print so many of them.Recently the band Poolside had us create their first run of merch for their upcoming tour. We made Tshirts and tote bags, both dip dyed specially to the colors that the band selected. Then we printed a simple one color print over top of them. They turned out very cool, and since then I have seen them being worn by people around the city!
Alex Ebert and his lively band of 11 mates (also known as Edward Sharpe) have been touring non stop for a few years now, and are finally just about to take a break. We were fortunate enough to be able to print ALL their merch for the last tour they just embarked on, and it was a really great experience.We printed on a wide variety of goods from Tshirts, Womens shirts, hoodies and even interesting crop tops and muscle tank tops. Here are a few shots of the Tshirt that we printed for them, which ended up turning out quite interestingly. This was originally a photograph that we converted into a 6 color simulated process print, and we went to town with high opacity plastisol inks for great coverage and a bright poppy final product. They were stoked, and so were we. Were excited for the next design that Alex comes up with
Custom buttons are one of those things that aren't essential to the success to your brand, but always help create buzz, help with brand awareness, and make people stoked to get something small with your logos on them. Plus, they are a SUPER cheap add on to your print order and are all customizable with the ability to add as many different logos to your button order. Plus, Print Renegades is always running specials for free buttons with your print order as well. Buttons up!!
This post was from a year ago, but we thought it cool enough to repost.Our friends in the band Maniac were recently featured on the cover of the latest LA Canvas magazine. They wanted to print some rad handprinted posters to match the art that they created for the cover of the mag. We let them come into the Print Renegade HQ to lay out the posters and go to town on their creative stylings. Heres a little bit of how they created these amazing hand printed posters. (hand spray painting the first color, then printing the 2nd). TRUE ARTISTS!!
