Yes, you can supply your own garments. We will however reserve the right to not print a garment if it’s made from unsuitable fabric or it’s an unsuitable style. Please note that while every care is taken to supply a full print job with no ‘seconds’ it is advisable to supply a couple more t-shirts in case of any errors.

We can print up to 12 colours in a design. Remember, white bases and hilites are also considered colours and are almost always necessary on dark coloured t-shirts.
We generally ask for 10 working days to turn a job around. If you require a quick turnaround we offer a fast service that may include an extra charge.
If you want to see a test print prior to the run starting, we can either arrange a digital image to be emailed/messaged to you, or you can come to the factory to view a sample. Please note, the test print does not allow for alterations to be made to the print. We send a digital e-proof where we expect you will make any changes you think are necessary.
Yes, we can ship anywhere in Australia.
Please see our guidelines in the ‘Resources’ section that covers artwork specifically.
The set up charge is to colour separate your image, to run film for each colour and then to create a stencil onto a screen for each colour. Please note the physical screen remains the property of Machine Screenprinters.
Yes, we offer a full sampling service to enable you to produce SalesMan Samples [SMS]. We have worked in the fashion industry for over 10 years and are very experienced in timeframes and seasonal requirements.
Soft feel printing is the most requested method of printing in recent times. We have perfected this form using specialty inks such as discharge and also solvent free water based inks. Soft feel is achievable on both dark and light coloured t-shirts and because of its technical requirements is charged at a higher price.
Our recommended minimum print runs are based on the number of colours within your design. We suggest a one colour design has a minimum of 20 units, a two colour design has a minimum of 30, a three colour has 40 and so on. This recommendation means that your unit price is a reasonable, cost effective rate. Importantly, we can always print LESS than the recommended minimum but this does mean the unit price increases. Minimum runs assist in allowing us to cover set up times but also assist you in covering your set up costs.
You can print on most areas of a garment however some placements don’t allow us to create a smooth surface area to print.
At this stage we do not offer digital printing. Our research has concluded that the available equipment on the market today does not meet our standards in imprint consistency or our production demands. It does not provide costs effectiveness to our customers.
We can supply Australian made t-shirts however we believe that our current suppliers offer the best styles and colours available worldwide.
