What is Screen Printing?
From 25-10,000 prints. Most designs are suitable to be screen printed, however if your design contains a lot of colours and is a smaller quantity (25-50pcss) DTG may be a better option.

NOTE: DTG prints do not have the same durability as a screen print and the print finish on dark garments is not quite as nice.
What is Embroidery?
Embroidery is a fantastic option for workwear and apparel that need extreme durability.
Our minimum per order is 10pcs.
How do I find out how much my order will cost?
Due to the amount of variables in our several process and the vast array of garments that we wholesale, we need to quote each print on a job to job basis. This also allows us to ensure that we are matching the right product to your needs

However, if you can send us your design/ideas and some information, we are more than happy to supply you with a concise and obligation free quote.

Because I have paid for a set-up, does this mean I own the film and screens?
No, it does’t. The costing allowed for screen set-up is directly related to the labour and materials that it takes to take a design from a digital file to print. It does not include the purchase of the film or the screen itself.
Used screens are held for a certain period and then reclaimed (recycled) and reused for other orders. If you have paid for a set-up for a previous order need to re-order within 12 months, setup fees are waived. This means you will not have to pay another set-up fee, meaning even cheaper prints for your 2nd print run.
Where are you located?
Your order will be shipped via our friendly large network of friendly couriers out of our Melbourne locations. We now operate under an online business model, which allows us to give you the best prices and focus on providing fast and flexible customer service.
