ROQ Screen Printing Testimonials: FUG

“We started January 21, 2011. We printed everything on a Riley Hopkins® four-station, six-color press (which we love). We were receiving orders for 100-500 for local colleges, and they usually gave us a five-day notice and wanted to know if it was possible to get it done. We never said no, but we realized that […]

Long distance printing at it’s finest – A World Record Breaking Event

Jessica Marshall

It's been a whirlwind over here, with the Halloween buzz and all of our recent events having just ended. For those of you lucky enough to be in the Midwestern vicinity and even luckier to have made it over to our warehouse in Arkansas for our Open House Event - We absolutely LOVED having you with us! It was a blast and we were (once again) reminded that our favorite people in the world to party with are our customers. You guys are honestly the best.

For one more reason to pity the rest of us envy-stricken individuals, some of the lucky attendees of the event carried a little piece of history home with them that day, along with their full stomachs. Headlining the event was Ryonet's attempt at breaking the Guinness Book of World Record's longest screen print. Our 80 foot long wooden screen was graciously built by Nortech. A beast of a frame and covered in 156 mesh, the design was 18 feet longer than the previous World Record. Each attendee was able to join in the printing efforts and contribute with one of the provided 12" squeegees. The design, a string of "Long Distance Printers" marathon running across the fabric, was made by our own graphic designer Mark Daffron.

Velo Cult: A New Kind of Shop

Jessica Marshall

Ryonet is lucky to have the opportunity to connect with and assist many types of printers and businesses who incorporate screen printing into their practice. We are constantly blown away by the diversity and unique passion that people put into their work, sometimes through design-based creativity and sometimes by finding a way to incorporate screen printing into creating a whole new culture. Velo Cult has done just that. Equal parts bike shop, venue, and bar, Velo Cult is all about creating a space that is more about the diversity of Portland biking culture than selling bikes.

Ryonet + Youth Music Project

Jessica Marshall

As many people know, Ryonet started from a love of music. The very first shirts made by Ryonet's CEO were made in an effort to promote his punk band over 10 years ago. This is a fitting backdrop, as Josh Wells (one of Ryonet's own) stepped up last week to help out the local Youth Music Project print some t-shirts of their own.

We've made several new how-to videos in last few weeks... it's a real how-to-screen-print-palooza. Indeed. Is there ever too many videos that teach, instruct, inspire and encourage? We think not.

The Ryonet team has awesome customers... we enjoy what we do so much because of the wonderful screen printers we get to meet along the way!
