Live Print with Volcom in LA

Live Print with Volcom in LA. Volcom and Ink Wells created a customization experience in Los Angeles for the Georgia May Jagger Collaboration launch. One of the highlights of this was that Volcom has Ink Wells create a custom garment for Georgia May Jagger closest friends including cara delevingne, Eugenie Grey, Christina Caradona and more.

Our Live On Site Custom Printing Team partnered up with Volcom to produce Custom Guest names on the back of Raglan shirts to match the look of the Georgia May Jagger piece available in the Volcom X GMJ collaboration.

We were so excited to be a part of this launch and created a custom Live Design app that allowed guests to select their raglan size and add their custom print + names that were printed Live On Site.  This was a huge success and we had a larger crowd than the open bar, which is common for our Live Print service.  

We build a custom table with unique mounts for our digital display and a custom light table to assist with the perfect print alignment while at night.  Using a unique process uncommon for most printers to comprehend and deliver a unique quality on these unique Volcom blends we created a high quality customized product.

Live Printing at Finish Line with adidas

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]During the 2016 Holiday Season we produced Live Printing at Finish Line with Live Design of custom socks by adidas.

We were asked to create a live custom design application to give consumers the ability to design their own socks online and send us their order.  We created this to be placed inside of the Finish Line Water Tower mall store in Chicago.  During this activation the guests were able to submit their own designs and photos and touch create the socks and then watch them live printed.  In this activation guests could also design on ipads that we had set up with staff for design support.  When guests are able to access their personal photo library to create the impact of the product increases significantly.  Its an amazing honor for us to be able to work with adidas and The Finish Line stores in allowing their consumers to create from the heart.

This design and live print process takes approximately 10 minutes per designer + print to completed product and is definitely something that engages consumers all the way through the creative process. It brings a great amount of positive attention to the store and leaves consumers with a strong memorable experience from the store.  It gave the adidas rep and store employees more time with their consumers and allowed the consumers to further engage with all that the store had to offer.

Special one day in store activations like this are amazing for driving new buzz and new consumers into the retail store.  Its a great way to allow for interactive engagement directly with consumers and give them a product that is so meaningful to them they share it on every platform and never forget where they got it.


Live Printing Custom Socks


The quality of the adidas socks for live printing are amazing.  The combination of ink, process and amazing adidas sock material creates a soft and vibrant product.

Finish Line Retail Live Print ActivationLive Custom Sock Printing with adidas

Our live print teams remain very active throughout every activation.  The process is often a multi step live print process and we engage all the way through from event start to finish.  In this case the amount of space allotted to our booth was limited and we reacted by being very flexible and compressing into the corner window to allow for guest to still access products in direct proximity to our booth.

Live Print and Design in Chicago

One of the major things that bring us joy in this service is to engage with the guests and get them excited about the experience they are about to witness.  We teach them about the process and allow them to watch the custom manufacturing live on site.  consumers love to watch the Live Print process in front of them.


Live Printing at Finish Line in Chicago

These consumers in the Chicago Water Tower Mall excited about whats happening inside the store.  Many came in to take advantage of the live print and design being offered inside.

We realized that this is entertaining and people stop and watch for minutes at a time, bringing friends back to the store window to observe the Live Printing Service.  Its a great environment for an activation like this.  Entertaining the people is part of the fun of Live Printing.

We are so thankful to have the opportunity to collaborate with brands like adidas to be able to bring these awesome activations direct to the consumers!  Big shout out to adidas and Finish Line for being so awesome.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][mk_padding_divider][mk_contact_form title=”Contact Us to Schedule a Retail Activation Today!” style=”corporate” button_text=”Contact Us” bg_color=”#1e1e1e” border_color=”#3d3d3d” font_color=”#afafaf” button_font_color=”#ffffff”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Retail Activation | adidas retail store Las Vegas

Las vegas is one of our favorite locations for Live Printing

Live Printing Las Vegas with adidas.  It is the highest honor to collaborate with adidas and bring live printing inside the retail store flagship store on the Las Vegas Blvd in Nevada.  To celebrate the launch of the Alpha Bounce shoe by adidas guests are allowed to design a pair of customized socks when they purchase of the shoe.

Live Printing Las Vegas

We used our wide format dye process printing to create a full bleed knee/mid high socks that are live printed in front of the consumers.  Guests select their custom design that are a collaboration from the creative team at adidas.  Each image further expressed the branding of the Ultraboost shoe and connected the purchase to the customer.  Live printing is so engaging and these Customers were so intrigued by the custom live printing set up.

This live activation consisted of four different product options and as part of an activation that included the launch of the shoe DJ Tina T and our live print and design activation. In the store on that day and he one that purchased the Alpha Bounce you would also receive A pair of custom socks printed live in front of them with the design of their choice.

Live Printing Las Vegsa
It’s an amazing honor to us to be able to partner with adidas and manufacture custom socks inside of the flagship retail locations.  I love to be able to create these products and see the reactions of people who have items created live in front of them.  There is so much thrill and excitement in their eyes as they identify their purchase with this process and have an item become personalized just for you.  The adidas staff would walk customers who had purchased the shoes over to our booth and then it was up to our team to engage with the customer and show them our beloved process.  Through entertaining and educating the guests and giving them a finish product these customers were so pleased with the overall interactivity.
This was one of seven live print activation that we did for adidas into 2016 and we couldn’t be happier to have such an amazing client believe in bringing interactive marketing to further enhance the customers experience.

A big shout out to happy lucky PDX and priestly production for putting together an amazing activation series. We are so thankful.

Live Printing in NYC with Microsoft


Live Printing in NYC with Microsoft.  This opportunity to create a live printing installation at Skylight NYC at Moynihan station New York, NY during the Microsofts Windows 10 Devices event came as a dream come true and deep honor for our live print team.  We created a unique experience of on site custom printing and utilized our custom design software for one of the most amazing clients.  Our live print and design experience allowed Microsoft execs and fans to create their own unique product using the new Surface Pro 4 tablets, then watch it get printed!

When you are asked to design a custom interface that will be used by the executives of  Microsoft and knowing that the Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella will be present; your nerves certainly rise and you aim to cover every angle of your technology, making sure its on point.  We went in confident knowing that we had tested and re tested our custom live print design software on these incredibly powerful new Windows 10 devices and new Microsoft Edge browser.  You have to know your software works well before you enter the building.

When the doors opened and the crowd entered into this elaborate and amazing showroom featuring latest Microsoft technology we immediately were rushed.  We explained to hundreds of people that we were live printing custom products and that they could use the new Surface tablets to create their own design and then watch us print it.  Every single reaction was overwhelming, they loved it and watching them use the touch pads to design their product was so amazing!  The live printing was super busy but went smooth and we delivered over 400 custom printed products during the party.

How cool of Microsoft to put together a massive afterparty featuring the best and latest unreleased technology!  We can’t disclose too much of what we saw but just know that the products Microsoft is releasing within the next few months will blow your mind.

The venue, the Skylight NYC at Moynihan station in downtown Manhattan was outfitted with some sweet features that were set up by some extremely talented production groups including Zed Ink who put in some serious overtime putting this all together.

Live Printing and Design in NYC with Microsoft

Live Printing is our thing.  We absolutely love to collaborate with companies like Microsoft to make something super unique on site.  Our team works very hard on site to ensure every single engager is taken care of with extreme detail.  We don’t overlook a single person as they approach us and we work hard to ensure when they leave, they are leaving happy.

Live Printing in NYC
We feel blessed by this opportunity and thank Microsoft, Zed Ink and everyone that had a part in putting this amazing event together.  We are so happy to have been a part of it.
