About PopFactory – POPKILLER

Welcome to POPFACTORY

 

For over 10 years we have been a part of the Los Angeles design and retail community. 

Since we have our own factory in DTLA, we are the only company able to offer printing, retail, wholesale, and online sales opportunities.

  


 

ARTIST COLLABORATIONS

WHOLESALE

 

We work with local LA artists to help get out their dreams.  Through our T-Shirt collaborations, we can offer places to sell artist branded products in our network of retail stores, online, or through our wholesale network from our Arts District showroom.

We can offer artists an opportunity to sell their work at our POP Tee Shop retail location and our online store.

Using our years of experience to our advantage, we are able to offer wholesale sales to Japan and throughout America.

 

POPFACTORY as a creative community has been alive and well since 2003, working with artists and businesses to primarily produce graphic T-Shirts that can be delivered for wholesale or retail.

In 2014, POP FACTORY officially opened it's showroom including a network of outside buyers built over ten years. This has given artists and brands exposure to a wider market and by extension, larger profit potential.

Additionally, POP FACTORY has two built-in retail brands, POPKILLER and POP Tee Shop, to quickly test and place promising designs which becomes another potential source of revenue for artists.

Started in 2013, the POP brand is all about the art and music. LP packaged tees are a big draw at the Little Tokyo retail location, just adjacent to the Los Angeles Art's District.

In addition to curating and carrying sought-after local brands, POP works specifically with local artists to create POP's own T-Shirt produced by POP FACTORY.

Since 2003, POPKILLER has been a Los Angeles outpost of the underground with a clever cool. Three retail stores throughout the city have cultivated devoted "POPKILLERS" through LA and beyond.

POPKILLER specializes in POPKILLER brand clothing produced in POP FACTORY's facility, high quality vintage, accessories, gifts, and novelties, with a decidedly edgy style and a splash of Japanese accents.
