Printing may be an unfamiliar process to you, that’s understandable, but please clarify any questions before signing off on your order. We are even happy to make an appointment with you and go through all the details, just give us a call or email to organise a time.
Once you sign off on the job sheet, consider your job details locked in. Any changes made after signing off may incur extra fees and/or cause a delay to the completion of your job.
Remember that the mockup of your print on the job sheet is not to scale. We provide the actual measurements next to the design so that you can visualise it, a handy tip is to draw up the sizes or print your design on some paper to scale and take a look how it physically appears.
Garment Sizes and Styles
The last page of the job sheet details all the garments we will be printing for you. Please make sure that you check the styles/sizes/colours carefully. Mistakes can happen with back and forth emails and phone calls so it’s important that you approve this final checklist to make sure we are printing the correct items.
If you are printing across a wide variety of styles and sizes we will always to our best to represent how your design scale will translate across very small to very large garments. If you have questions about how your design will look, please get in touch before signing off on your order. It’s easier to guide you through the process before printing that to explain it after the garments are printed.
Because the process of screen printing is manually done for the most part, there is no effective or efficient way to measure a distance from the collar of every single individual shirt that gets loaded onto the press. If you request a print that is 8cm down from the collar, we will measure the first couple to make sure the print hits that target, though since this is just guide, not all shirts will be exactly 8cm from the collar, they may be off as much as 1cm either above or below as the garment is loaded onto the press by hand. This will not be considered a misprint and we will not be liable for reprinting or refunding these garments.
If you don’t supply us with your placements for your printed designs we will go off our standard placements for specific prints. For example, a front pocket print is generally 8cm down from the collar and centred to the left hand side of the tee, while a large front print is generally 6cm down from the collar. We do our best to make sure the placement of the print is true to the design, and works best with the garment.
Minimum artwork resolution is 300 DPI, actual size.
Illustrator or photoshop files are preferred (save as .ai .pdf .eps).
High resolution .jpg or .tiff may be appropriate but artwork charges may apply.
Please flatten all layers and ensure all text is outlines before sending your files.
We use pantone codes to mix inks, it ensures our ink master can correctly follow formulas to make the inks for your job. If you have not supplied us with pantone codes we will pick the closest match from your artwork. If you would prefer, you’re welcome to make an appointment to come to the studio and pick your colours using our pantone swatch books. if you have a PMS Colour you specifically want or need for your order, let our design team know at the beginning of your order.
We aren’t responsible for colours not matching 100% as we allow a small a very small variance for colour matching. If there’s something you’ve printed elsewhere or something you’re trying to colour match, please bring it in for us to match.
If you printed waterbase/discharge on a certain garment brand in the past, the final product may differ from your current order. This is due to the manufacturing process of the shirt itself. It’s possible to have a batch of 100% cotton garments, for example, that water base/discharge differently than any other given batch.
We have an extensive range of blank garments and items we can source for you to print. Our preferred suppliers for garments are both AS Colour and Alstyle (AAA). If you would like to view samples in person we have a range available for you to try at our studio. Let us know if you want to come in and take a look.
When dropping off supplied garments, please ensure all correct numbers are delivered, and the garments are split into their respective prints and labelled clearly. Additional charges for splitting supplied orders into their sizes and prints may apply.*
Please note if you wish to supply your own garments it is at your own risk, for the most part we will request to see the garment in person before we determine if we can print on it, though if this isn’t the case we cannot accept any responsibility for any negative effects caused by the printing process of your supplied garments (sublimation, scorching, melting, shrinking). This also applies to any supplied Active Wear garments including Dry-fit tees that are made from 100% Polyester or Poly blends (Nylon, Spandex or Lycra). We advise all customers supplying Athletic garments to speak to their supplier or manufacturer about the best way to apply prints to these specific garments, especially is your job is time sensitive. For example, sublimation of a print can occur but may take 24-48 hours after the print has been applied to happen, and if the job has a tight deadline, the time it takes to test whether or not this may happen is greatly reduced.
