If you have a lot of colours and only require a small amount of pieces, after discussing your needs, we may guide you toward one of our other processes like DTG that will be more suitable.

 

 

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

Some of these variables include, quantities, garment choice and colour, fibre content, colours to be printed, complexity of design, print size and location.

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.

 

 

How do I know what process is best suited to my needs?

Each design, garment purpose and garment type and order quantity can be better suited toward different processes.

 

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.

State of the art machinery and the highest quality materials  ensures that our Screen Printing is of the highest quality and is very durable.

We have a number of ink options including our standard Plastisol, Waterbase, Discharge, Metallics & Special effects. This is the most cost effective method for 25-50+pcs for minimumal colours and is discounted per order quantity.

Maximum print size is: 40cm x 60cm (Can vary depending on the smallest garment size and the design itself)

 

DTG:

This process is fantastic for smaller orders that contain a lot of colours or are photographic.

Our State of the art DTG printer can achieve incredible detail. DTG prints do not have the same durability as a screen print and the print finish on dark garments is not quite as nice.

It is also ideally suitable for 100% Cotton garments.

Maximum print size is: 35cm x 40cm (Can vary depending on the smallest garment size and the design itself)

 

Embroidery: 

Embroidery is a fantastic option for workwear and apparel that need extreme durability.

Our minimum per order is 10pcs.

Are we able to supply our own garments?

Yes you can. We keep the process simple and organise delivery from your door directly to our factory and straight back to you.

As we are official wholesalers of over 20 brands, 99% of the time it is more cost effective for us to supply and print your orders. If you have a brand that you would like to use that we do not currently wholesale, please let us know as we can likely add it to our offerings or offer an alternative.

Printing on your supplied garments does attract a handling fee which can vary depending on the difficulty of the fabric/print. Some fabrics and garments are not made specifically for printing and we may not be to print your garments upon discussing the details.

 

 

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, chances are we still have your screen/s. This means you will not have to pay another set-up fee, meaning even cheaper prints for your 2nd print run.
