Family Industries is not your ordinary screen printing and design house. [Screen Shot 2014-09-18 at 12.05.12 AM]

In 2008, Alex Meiners and Max Hellmann came together with one vision in mind: creating a screen printing shop where the customer comes first. With their collective backgrounds in design, marketing, and music, the two set out to set up shop.

Family Industries was born in the run down back shed/ carriage house of Max’s house in Echo Park. After Alex and Max finished working their 9-5’ jobs, they would head to the overly cramped space each night to print shirts for themselves and their friends. As business boomed the guys felt the growing pains more then ever. Elbow to elbow, and tired of sharing a desk, Alex and Max moved into a larger studio and hired a full time printer. Family Industries was now a full fledge screen printing machine. There was no time to take a day off.

Everyday was filled with orders and every night there was a live event. After a year the time had come once again to make a move.

Fortunately the move would be less then half a block away. Scoping out Los Angeles for the perfect place the guys saw a 8 x 11 sign in a dirty window that said 9000sqft for rent. Family Industries had finally found the perfect space where they could have a full office, show room, and production floor. 

They moved on from manually carrying boxes through a narrow hallway to a factory ready space with a roll up door to bring in palates of apparel and printing media. With multiple auto and manual screen printing presses, design resources, and industry knowledge, Family Industries has become the go to print shop in the Los Angeles area capable of printing 5000+ pieces of apparel a day. From the shed to the factory, Family Industries now serves local to cross-country businesses realize their printed dreams of retail to promotional items. Whether your project is here at home on a local level or national scale, Family Industries has the logistical knowledge and skill to treat every project and customer like family.
