Can I just print one thing?
Yes of course. Our minimum order is one :)
What types of printing do you offer?
We offer high quality digital direct to garment printing (not transfers). For higher quantities with limited colour designs, we also offer screenprinting. You can see more on our Services page.
Digital printing means we can print high detail images without limiting the number of colours in a design, as well as printing photographic quality. The ink adheres to the fabric of the garment underneath which means the print feels much softer than a traditional screenprint.
Our bolder, brighter Innobella Textile Inks are water-based pigment inks that are Okeo-Tex Eco-Pass certified and CPSIA compliant. They have exceptional washability if cared for correctly. The result is a great looking garment that looks brighter, longer. brighter, longer with proven washability as evidences by AATCC wash tests, where our inks score 4.0 or higher on every test.
What products can I print?
We print onto high quality AS Colour cotton t-shirts, singlets, hoodies, sweatshirts, bags, plus pillowcases, tea-towels, cushion covers, aprons and wall banners. All of these are available on this site.
Do you offer relabelling ?
Yes we offer relabelling of AS Colour products only, and the minimum order is 20 units which can be a mixture of items. The relabelling is done by AS Colour and we do not mark up their pricing. You can view the relabelling pricing here. Please note that relabelling takes at least a week, and sometimes longer in busy periods, and our five working day production time starts from when we receive the garments from AS Colour. Often it's quicker and easier to incorporate your logo into your printed design, and is more visible to your customers anyway.
Can you print on synthetic apparel like breathable singlets?
Yes we can, but only screenprinting, which requires a minimum of ten units of the same design. Just request a quote above. We have a range of suppliers that are not shown on the website as there would be too many products to view.
Can you print on caps?
Yes we can, but only screenprinting or embroidery, which requires a minimum of ten units of the same design. Just request a quote above. We have a range of suppliers that are not shown on the website as there would be too many products to view.
Where are your t-shirts from and are they ethically produced?
We print onto high quality AS Colour cotton which use hand-picked factories with safe, fair, legal and humane working conditions. They are Child Labor Free. You can find out more here.
What if something is out of stock?
Like most other printers, we do not hold stock of all the apparel options we have on our site, and order them from our suppliers once orders are confirmed. Occasionally an item you have ordered on our site, will be out of stock with our supplier. This is out of our control. We will always let you know the next business day after your order and will either give you alternatives, or can fully refund for any out of stock items.
Can you print on sleeves?
Yes we can, but only screenprinting, which requires a minimum of ten units of the same design. Just request a quote above.
Can I supply my own clothing for you to print?
We only print on our own supplied apparel to guarantee quality.
Do you send out samples?
Yes that’s no problem, you can order just one item printed to check out the quality before committing to more if you would like.
What sizes can you print up to?
We can DTG print from newborn onesies up to Mens 4XL. We can screenprint up to 7XL.
How do I know what size I need?
The measurements are given for each product on the website. Body Width is measured flat from seam to seam, usually under the armpit. Body Length is measured from the shoulder to the hem. Please note that measurements can vary +/- 2.5cm, this is within our supplier's tolerance.
Can I print my own design and can you print photos?
Yes you can! Go to Create Your Own and select a blank product, choose your colour, then upload your own design or photo or select from the supplied designs. You can even link directly to your Facebook or Instagram account to easily access your images.
How to I reorder a previous order?
You just log in to the website, with your username and you can reset your password if you’ve forgotten it. Then you go to your previous orders, click the checkbox on the left next to the order you want to reorder and then click reorder at the top right. This will add your previous order to the cart, where you can then go in and edit it for sizes, quantity, colours etc, or duplicate it if you want to make some more changes.
I want the background removed, can you do this?
Yes we can. Please put a note in with your order asking for the background to be removed. We can do that for you at no charge in most cases.
There are also several free background removal tools online that work well.
What are the file requirements for uploading a design?
We accept the following file formats: PNG, PDF, SVG, SVGZ, JPG, JPEG. Our maximum print area is 40 x 45cm and 300dpi is preferred.
The approximate maximum print sizes are:
Infant 18 x 20cm
Kids 25 x 30cm
Womens 35 x 40cm
Mens 40 x 45cm
Your file must be at least 72 dpi (300 dpi is best) but bigger is better for crisp, clean printing. You will get a warning on our designer if the image has been enlarged too much.
If you are using an image from Google, please go to Tools, and select the size Large.
If you are using Canva, please export as a high quality pdf or png file.
For close colour matching it's best to have the colour process as CMYK. RGB files look nice and bright on screen but they are unable to be reproduced in CMYK printing.
How do I know the designs are the right size and in the right place?
We resize the designs in proportion to the size of the top. We do not use the measurements you see in our online designer. These measurements you see on our online designer are the same whether you have chosen an XS top or a 3XL, which of course would mean if we stuck to those measurements, the designs would be too big on an XS and too small on a 3XL. We also sometimes adjust the positioning of the design to what most people want if we think it might have been accidentally positioned wrong, eg we centre designs that are slightly off centre.
If you have specific size or location requirements we are totally happy to print them as you want them, but you MUST notify us by putting a note on your order.
