    If you place your order and make payment in the afternoon or evening, we’ll send your order the following business morning and you’d receive it on the next business day. 

    South Island deliveries can take 2-3 days, especially for larger orders.

  • Where do we ship from?

    We ship most of our products from Auckland. Sometimes products are shipped from different locations around New Zealand, but 95% of our products are shipped from Auckland.

    We don't ship anything to you from overseas, that'd take weeks and would be far too expensive.

    If there is an issue with your delivery, you’ll need to contact New Zealand Couriers. They prefer to hear from the recipient (customer) so they can arrange delivery with them.

Printing your Order

We make printing your apparel easy.

  • File Types

    For the best results, we always request vector files from Adobe Illustrator.

    AI, EPS, PDF (vector files only).



  • File Size

    We recommend all files are at least 300dpi for the best possible print quality.

  • Font Types

    You can use any font you like, but these will need to be converted to outlines/curves in Adobe Illustrator.  To do this, choose Type > Create Outlines.

    Alternatively, you can email us the font files, and we can work with these.

  • Where to Start

    Please email us with the following details;

    • Vector files of your design/s
    • Details of the garment you'd like to use
    • Sizes, colours and quantities of the garments
    • Pantone codes of the colours that you want to use
  • How much does printing cost?

    The cost of screenprinting depends on how many colours are in your print, and how many prints you'd like done. 

    You can get a rough idea of printing costs with our Screenprinting Price Estimator Tool.

We try to make it as easy as possible to order with us, but there are always more questions to ask. If you can’t find the answer to your questions on this page, flick us an email HERE and we’ll get straight back to you.
