Screen Printing Case Studies


Success stories from a decade of experience. 

Over the past decade, Family Industries has printed at every type of event, convention, and party imaginable. Below are examples of various brand campaigns and past activations that we are proud to have been a part of. Whether it's a brand launch or a birthday party, our print team handles each with the same amount of dedication and professionalism.

Banc of California - “Summer on the Rise”

What better way to kick off summer than accomplishing our greatest challenge yet: live screen printing on clear PVC bags. Atop The Fields restaurant in Downtown LA, we celebrated this major milestone by printing over four hundred PVC tote bags for guests of Banc of California’s “Summer on the Rise” event. It was a night we won’t soon forget.

Record Store Day 2019 - Amoeba Music (Hollywood)

We couldn’t help but feel like rock stars as we printed atop the Amoeba Music stage. For the eleventh year in a row we teamed up with the largest record store in the world, Amoeba Music in Hollywood, to bring vinyl lovers of all ages some exclusive, limited edition Record Store Day shirts and tote bags. Shoppers were able to pick from four designs, each of which had it’s own unique color. All proceeds from this year’s sales went to the Silverlake Conservatory of Music.

Vitamin A x Fred Segal

The Highest quality fashion meets the highest quality screen printing. In the middle of Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood, we had the incredible opportunity of collaborating with fashion titans Fred Segal and Vitamin A for their big swimwear release. Guests of the event were treated to hand printed tote bags in four unique colors. We even let a couple of them hop on the press to learn how we make the magic happen.

Spotify “Fans First” w/ Khalid

It’s not often you get a chance to print on a beautiful rooftop overlooking an entire metropolitan city, but we got to do it for three-hundred and fifty excited Khalid fans. As the sun set over Los Angeles, fans had the opportunity to choose from four different, one color designs that we printed on the backs of their official “Free Spirit”/Spotify album release tee. Hard to beat a beautiful night in the city, great music filling the air, all while we get to do what we love to do.

TikTok — “For Black History”

It’s always an honor being able to celebrate the talents of hard working people. For Black History Month we teamed up with TikTok in L.A. to make people’s denim dreams come true. We took a whole bunch of high-quality denim jackets, gave guests four different designs to pick from, and screen printed those designs smack-dab on the back of them.

NEXT 2019 (Chic-Fil-A)

Two stations, four shirt styles, and lines that went on forever. Our work at Chic-Fil-A’s NEXT Conference 2019 was a huge, huge hit. We hand printed hundreds of tees, in four different styles at the jam-packed Anaheim Convention Center. Tasty tees for the purveyors of tasty chicken sandwiches.

Bugs Ball 2019 (Warner Bros.)

For two years in a row, Family Industries has had the distinct pleasure of being a part of Warner Brother’s yearly Annie Awards celebration, the Bugs Ball. For 2019’s event we took to the floor and hand printed hundreds of two colored tees for all the guests. Not to brag, but the line to get our shirts put the dance floor to shame!

SyFy @ Comic Con NYC (Convention Hall)

We had the pleasure to print 6000 custom SYFY shirts for the cosplay wearing folk of the New York City Comic Con at the Javits Center in early October. We were located on the mezzanine level of the "Crystal Palace" and were directly in front of the main entrance to the convention floor.  Guests lined up from dusk until dawn to grab a free t-shirt with the newly rebranded SyFy logo! 

"The Secret Life of Pets" @ Licensing Expo Vegas
