Calimucho has swiftly become San Pedro, California’s favorite and most reliable go-to screen printer. They’ve come a long way since their humble beginnings in 1999, mainly helping out their friends in the San Pedro punk and skateboard communities. While remaining true to their D.I.Y. punk ethos, Calimucho has managed to learn and grow and take their screen printing skills to another level, after purchasing their first legit press in 2007. The friendly pairing of Raul and Kevin make up Calimucho, two regular Joe’s who will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable as they teach you the tools of the trade in a laid-back, chill atmosphere.—Craig Ibarra 2017
About your screen printers….Raul and Kevin first met in the late 90’s participating in the DIY(Do it Yourself) punk scene in Southern California. Quickly becoming good friends they strarted playing music together and touring the country together. This led to the pair screen printing tshirts, record covers, and tour posters together, as a necesity to fuel these tours. During this time period friends starterd to ask Raul and Kevin to print their bands shirts and more. This was the catalyst that jump started Calimucho Screen Printing in a 3 story Victorian house in San Pedro, California in 2007. They printed shirts for local bands, the skateboard community, local schools as well as printing at live skateboard and music related events, Calimucho became a destination of creation and fun. Kevin decided to shake things up and moved to Portland, OR in 2013 and now two Calimucho’s were off and running. Shortly after relocating to Portland Kevin began working for Ryonet and became the lead instructor for the Screen Print Experience classes, a perfect marriage of his screen printing past combined with teaching middle school for 10 years.. Fast forward to 2017 Kevin moved back to San Pedro to rejoin with Raul and this is where Calimucho stands now, a new physical commercial location, equipment upgrades and new partners to teach Ryonet’s Screen Print Experience class in San Pedro, Ca. The future looks brite as their goal is to become automatic in the next year.
