Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co. is a metal distributor in Los Angeles. The company started in the late 1930’s in the postwar metal industry boom. It was listed in Fortune’s List of “Most Admired Companies”.
Print Renegades was thrilled to work with a Los Angeles icon. The job: To screen print on patio umbrellas! This wasn’t just a T-shirt one could thread and easily work on, this took time and thought. We had to be precise, working with that large of fabric. It took multiple people to make sure each umbrella was flawless. After the umbrella was printed, we had to fit it into our dryer. Making sure the fabric didn’t scorch and the ink dried thoroughly. It was an exhausting job however, it’s projects like these that make us love our jobs. We are always ecstatic to have new and interesting projects, where we can showcase our knowledge of the trade.
The umbrellas turned out great. We hope Reliance can keep their employees and customers cool this summer!
