It’s been another busy week at IPS, we broke four figure Facebook likes, we ate some Kinder Eggs, and we printed a tonne of awesome stuff for some really great roller derby organisations – from London to Stockholm and beyond. Here’s a look at a few of our favourite projects of the week.
Double Threat Skates Neon Vests
We’ve printed a bunch of different designs and styles for our friends over at Double Threat Skates, from sleeveless hoodies to snapbacks, but this ace new print on Bella + Canvas cropped tops and unisex vests is one of our faves. Maybe put your shades on for this one, it’s a hell of a lot brighter than the current Scottish summer!
These split fountain screen prints are made up of three different ink colours on a single screen, which then blend together when printed, creating this blended gradient effect. The bright, neon colours used here really make this design stand out, and definitely help bring the classic London skyline to life.
Double Threat Skates are a super amazing brick & mortar, roller derby owned & operated skate shop, based in Kings Cross, London. Go give them a shout here for all of your roller derby gear needs & some top professional advice.
Stockholm Roller Derby
Stockholm Roller Derby loved their CMYK Northern Lights tees so much that they came back for more. This is our second run of this design for our roller derby friends over in Sweden. No wonder though – look how pretty!
These are full colour process screen prints, which are created by producing a separate screen for cyan, magenta, yellow and black, similar to the the way an inkjet printer separates it’s CMYK colour cartridges. This completely transforms the traditional world of custom screen printing, as it allows us to print full colour artwork that is of photographic quality. To make matters even better, they also have a super silky, soft finish. These particular tees are Earth Positive organic cotton t-shirts from Continental Clothing
Stockholm Roller Derby were the first Scandinavian roller derby league, and they are one of the top level teams in Europe. Check them out here for more info on all of their upcoming games and events.
Team Finland Men’s Roller Derby Vests
The Men’s Roller Derby World Cup takes place later this month, and we printed this excellent merch for Team Finland who will be competing there – here’s a look at the awesome new vests we printed for them this week.
This is definitely a great example of how effective it can be to keep things simple. These guys have stuck to a monochrome, single colour design for their new merch and it has really paid off – not only does it keep the costs of printing down, they also look badass.
The Men’s Roller Derby World Cup 2016 will take place from 21st – 24th July in Calgary, Canada, but don’t worry – you can also stream it online via mrdwc.com. Team Finland will be competing alongside 20 other nations from across 6 continents. You can check them out here to follow their epic world cup adventure – go team!
