Hey Guys!We know we know, it’s been a WHOLE YEAR, literally, since we’ve gotten a new post up on our blog but we’re looking to change that for 2017. Print Renegades has been growing and growing and we are SO busy (especially for the holidays) that posting on the blog has not been the priority that it should be. Now that we have a full time marketing and social media guy to assist in this, we will definitely be more up and out of our shells to bring you guys the new and improved Renegades!!Since last December, we have expanded our team to include some new faces to keep production in our shop running like a well-oiled machine and to make sure we stay active on social media and the web. We’ve got a new kick-ass DTG printer, the Epson F2000, that we’ve definitely been putting through its paces these last 12 months

The coverage still had to be there (so you couldn't see the color of the garment thru they ink itself) but it still needed it to be soft.

Tool of NA was part of this commercial revolution, bringing commercials to the main stream and making them cool again. They are a rad commercial production company based in Santa Monica, CA and they have lots of really great ideas.One of those ideas was for them to create some custom gifts for the holidays, something to give to their high up clients that spend millions of dollars on jobs with them. For this, they contracted us out to create these made-from-scratch custom hoodies. We not only picked out the fabric type, but also had them washed and dyed, custom cut and sewn, custom color zipper/pull string, and put a really great print on the front for them. Then added a custom hang
