Chloe Parks is a graphic artist, set designer, and illustrator based in Los Angeles, CA. She is currently the resident graphic artist at LA’s TheDreslyn.com, a high end independent fashion boutique in the heart of Downtown LA, and her passion for art and design within the context of the fashion industry is growing daily.The Print Renegades team most recently worked together with Chloe creating some really rad hand pulled Screen Printed 16" x 20" posters. Basic color design, really rad end result!These posters were printed using French Pop Tone paper (110# cover) with Permaset Ink, custom Pantone color matched, according to their specifications. Our favorite part about working with artists is their abililty to know exactly what they want, and we act as the medium to take what is in their mind and make it real. Print Renegades, producing hand made goods straight out of our shop in the heart of the DTLA Fashion District.
The fashion industry is always a full season ahead of the rest of the world. This is shown through the biggest fashion trade show in the world, Magic/Pool/Project trade shows in Las Vegas, they happen twice a year (Feb and Aug) and each trade show is for the season that they are currently in but ONE YEAR ahead (Feb is the fall show, Aug is the spring show). This system requires independent brands to keep up with this by coming out very early with their lines to impress buyers.As screen printers, because of this, we are usually printing tank tops in the dead winter, and long sleeved hoodies in the heat of summer. Some people who see this wonder "Who could possibly be ordering something so late", but this is due to the trends that are in place.We recently printed some tank tops for a really rad Canadian brand, RBLTG, out of Regina
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!
The guys at M.A.R.S. clothing are cutting edge. They always are striving for doing something different and unique to stand out. They asked us to print an allover Tshirt for them after the shirt is already made. (since usually all over prints happen before the Tshirt is sewn together).To achieve this, we constructed a very large platen and burned a very large screen. Then we placed the shirt on the table, used a gold discharge ink and printed the entire shirt over, even onto the pallet...just had to clean it off between every shirt. Turned out really good. Great job guys!!
The Bones and Feather Collective peeps are top knotch! They create jewelry from found bones and spines of deceased animals, mixed with feathers and gold pieces. They’re apparel designs are the perfect definition of classy and simplistic, very sheik contemporary and very high quality. Printed on incredibly soft Groceries Apparel garments, we printed them using the highest quality eco friendly waterbased inks money can buy. The print is so soft that you can hardly feel that the ink is present. Keep it up ladies!
We have been printing the moon phase calendar for MARGINS IMPRINT since 2009. And every year he has started ordering more and more each year. It has come to a point where we started sampling the 2014 orders back in June and have printed over 15,000 posters for them just this year alone.These calendars are printed with high opacity waterbased inks, and there are 2 versions: the full coverage colored ones, and minimal coverage on black paper. The full coverage posters cover over 95% of the entire poster, and are very difficult to print correctly, but we here at Print Renegades have mastered this art. We do full color matching, set up and printing of thousands of moon calendars for Margins and look forward to another 5+ years of more with them!
