Orlando "Friscasso" Velez started H365 Printing in 1998 in a small garage space of his grandparents house in San Francisco, California.
Once a troubled teenager more rooted in the streets than the books and a passion for art, he caught wind of a free class in the Mission District where he could learn to put his art work on t shirts. It was here at this program, designed to help keep at risk youth out of the streets, that he would find his new passion designing and printing t shirts and apparel.
As time went by, Friscasso found himself spending long days and long nights learning to bring his ideas to life and perfect his craft. A couple years went by and he was able to hustle up enough money to purchase his own "4 color silk screen press" at the age of 18.
It was officially go time, with no prior business background and just a kid from the streets, he came up with a logo and started his own local independent clothing line. He began selling t shirts, hoodies, women's and kids apparel at festivals, car shows, and even wholesale to local stores in the Mission District. It was with this money that he invested in new equipment to build his shop 1 piece at a time. At the age of 20, he went on to open his own clothing store in San Francisco, using street smarts and hustle, he was a natural business man in the making. From opening and closing 2 stores, having his clothing designs sold in stores all throughout the Bay Area, to building multiple websites, to hitting rock bottom he was not one to give up. Fast forward to 2016 where he opened up his current clothing store "Key to the City" which is one of San Francisco's most popular Urban fashion boutiques to date and an official warehouse for "H365 Printing". And now in 2020 with his print shop and store still open for business in San Francisco California, Friscasso has now moved to Las Vegas where he is in the process of building his new and second Print and embroidery shop.
It has been a long journey, but well worth it. Learning as he goes now with 22 years of experience under his belt, Friscasso has now rebuilt and upgraded the entire print shop with new top of the line equipment as well as expanding and adding an impressive commercial embroidery machine to his arsenal.
