Brand Marinade has had a unique set of clients including the Golden State Warriors.

From dot-com crash to algebra teacher to millions in hot market printing, Jeremy Castro is a deep thinker and forward-looking innovator in the print game…and a very early adopter of Printavo: "I'd been waiting for 15 to 20 years for someone to recognize this industry from a software perspective." He signed up in 2016 (while Bruce was struggling to get the company off the ground).

And Jeremy's journey all started on a donated screen printing press that came from San Quentin Prison.

This episode explores how hot market printing works. "If the Warriors win, we figure out how to print 10,000 shirts in a day."
