of Detail

It is and always has been about a holistic approach to service and a never-ending quest for perfection. In the age of disposability, Machine are here for the long haul. Founded in 1999, we have built our business to now be one of the leaders in the screen printing industry.

We pride ourselves on not getting caught up in the fads and trends; instead focussing on the enduring values of quality print and good service.

Located conveniently on the city fringe in the Abbotsford apparel district; our bright, modern factory is packed full of industry-leading machinery to ensure speed, economy and reliability. But, we understand any machine is only as good as the people that run it, so we invest heavily in employing the right people with the right skills and training, both behind the scenes and in the front of house.

We offer a full end to end printing service from garment sourcing to packing. Our well oiled machine takes care of every little detail, all under the one roof. All you need to do is press the button.


We are a family business, run by husband and wife team Jochen and Rebecca Orr. Our passion for t-shirts and screen printing runs deep. We’ve been in the industry since 1999 here in Melbourne and beyond that back in our homeland of NZ.

Equally, the team that make up Machine share a genuine love for the art of screen printing. We are excited by great design and feel an affinity with the kinds of industries and people we work for.
