Deluxe was born out of two women’s passion for artisan screen printing and love of cutting-edge fashion. Yes, that’s right, two bold women pioneers decided they would trailblaze their way into the screen printing industry as the first female owned and operated shop in Los Angeles. With humble beginnings, Elsie Acevedo and Liza D’Agostino started printing in their very own garage in 2008. How dare those ladies get out of the kitchen, you say? Elsie, for one, had worked for a major screen printing company for 15 years until she mastered the trade and became a leading expert in the industry. When you’re that good, why not set out on your own, right? That’s what she said. ;) Liza added her entrepreneurial spirit, big ol’ heart, and genuine love of tees to the business.
Unfortunately, Liza lost her battle with cancer on September 4, 2012. Chin up friend, Liza’s spirit lives on in the way we do business. So here we are. As Elsie always says, “We’re tiny, but we’re mighty!” Our clients include bands, major designer labels, gyms, schools, and a wide range of businesses. We offer the latest styles, hottest trends, and highest quality apparel brands with print consultants on hand to help bring your prints to life. We’re proud to be a local small business that treats our clients like family, giving every order the care and attention it deserves.
After working for a wholesale screen printer for 18 years, she decided to venture out and open her own screen printing company from her garage in 2008. After just a few months, Deluxe was born. With her sales and design consulting experience, she is able to help her clients bring their ideas to fruition. On her free time, she loves riding her motorcycle, road trips, hiking with her dogs and is a big foodie. Meet her and you see for yourself how bad ass she is!
With over 20 years in the apparel industry under her belt, her background includes designing for a major boys line, and serving as a sales/design expert for a top leading screen printing company in Los Angeles. She’s able to take that knowledge and apply it to a all her customers, treating each project with pride and perfection, whether large or small.As a Foodie, you’ll find her most weekends chowing down on L.A’s finest eats.
