Rebel Reprints: Tattoo and Art Prints from Artists, for Artists

Rebel Reprints   |   Orlando, Florida

As a full-time tattooer and artist, Scott Lukacs, owner of Rebel Reprints in Orlando, Florida is deeply committed to serving the print needs of his community. Lukacs set up his print shop in 2010, right next to his tattoo shop, to do just that.

Rebel Reprints offers limited artist prints and high quality vinyl decal and banner production.  In addition, the shop maintains a library of custom sticker and art designs that can be ordered directly from its website. 

Unmatched print quality

Rebel Reprints relies on Roland’s TrueVis™ VG series printer/cutter technology to ensure artist-level output.  “Print quality is the primary reason we chose Roland,” said Lukacs.  “Roland’s output is unmatched – our TrueVIS prints rich, saturated colors. It’s the closest thing to an art printer.”  

Lukacs has found a market among fellow tattooers, producing work for locally and nationally known tattoo artists such as Russ Abbot, Mike Dorsey, and Jime Litwalk. The company also prints for younger artists and for comic book conventions. “Instead of going to a giant company to get their banners and decals, they can have their work printed by a fellow artist,” he said. 

“Roland's print quality is unmatched...It's the closest thing to an art printer.”

Features that maximize results

With a typical decal order size of 500 to 1,000 at a time, the Roland’s integrated contour cutting capability has been an important asset for the shop.  They also rely on the printer’s take-up reel for unattended printing.

Rebel Reprints uses Roland’sTrueVIS INK exclusively to maintain consistently excellent output.  “We can match any color, and we don’t have to worry about compatibility problems,” Lukacs noted. “Most of the time we’re printing complex designs on a 5”x5” sticker, or smaller. People are looking at our work up close. 

“With the talents of our artists and the capabilities of our Roland, we see a bright future for our print production business.”
