Can I Supply my own garments?

Yes you can but we are unable to guarantee the result on client supplied garments. The branding itself will also be more expensive as apparel supply is a big part of our business.

As an apparel and accessories supplier we can get almost any garment and accessory at a great price, and as we are experienced with them we know the quality and what to expect when we print them. Not all garments print the same so before you purchase your own garments please discuss it with us first.

 
What format does my artwork need to be?

 
How long will my job take?

Our turn around is usually 2-3 weeks however let us know what your deadline is and we will aways do our best to meet it.

 
 What colours are available?

We use a Pantone Colour Matching system.. With so many colours available, you will most definitely find your match! Pop into our showroom to see the choice.

Will you provide a proof before going ahead?

Yes! We will never proceed with branding until the digital proof has been accepted by the customer. Once the quote has been accepted we begin working on the proof in the week prior to your deadline. Need a proof to before accepting a quote? Let us know and we can make it happen.

 
 Do you offer a graphic design service?

 How do I pay?

We accept cash, eftpos ands credit card. We no longer accept cheques. You can pay in store or online.

 
I paid a Set Up cost on the screen, does that mean I own them?

No you paid for the hireage of that screen, once your job has been finished we need to use the screen for other jobs. If you print the same design within 1x month the set up charge is free however reprints between 1 month and 6 month will be 50% of the original. Orders outside of 6 months will have the full set up charged.

Set up charges cover the labour and materials it takes to expose your artwork onto screens, and line the screens up on the carousel for printing. It takes as long to set up to print 1x tee as it does to print 100x.
