Beyond 5 Tour Merch

Our friends at Beyond 5 are really stepping up their game. Driven by the roots of groups like "One Direction", these guys are just as talented as they inspiring. When they play live, their syncopated stylings are similar to how sports teams play together, being able to act as one unit but still sounding amazing as young kids do these days.

They recently embarked on a tour around Asia, just in time to get back to a sold out show in their hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah. We had the chance to print a few hundred shirts of different colors, sizes and decorations. All the garments used were 50/50 blend tees.

Each print was a 2 color print of their logo, some of which were just standard prints and some that were foiled.
Soft waterbased inks were required, but the blend tees made it impossible to discharge. Also, since they wanted only a part of their image foiled, and those parts overlapped with each other, we had to print part of the design with a waterbased ink and other parts with oil based; in order to not have the foil stick to the entire image. (since foil sticks only to plastisol ink...).
