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.


We ship pretty fast, but here are out FAQ’s around Shipping…

  • Speed of shipping

    New Zealand Customers

    We realise you're in a hurry to get your apparel, so we're in a hurry to get it to you. 

    We ship with NZ Couriers on overnight delivery. 

    Our cut-off time is noon/lunch time, so if you get your order and your payment in by lunch time, we'll have your order on the courier that afternoon and you'll receive it on the next business day. 

    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.

    Sports T-Shirts

    Our range of t-shirts for sports is growing quickly. Here are the most popular options for the sports teams and athletes of Aotearoa...

    • The Gildan Performance T-Shirt is a very popular chose, as it's easily printable and available for MenWomen and Kids.

For sports teams that want the best, for an awesome price, this is the t-shirt. These are available in MensWomens and Long Sleeve.
  • Labels and tags

    The ultimate in apparel customisation - replacing the labels in your apparel makes the gear super unique to your business.

    Most of our gear has two tags, one that can be removed, and one that should stay.

    The tag that can be removed is the branding of the t-shirt, Gildan, Anvil etc. Then your own tag can be put on to the garment.

    The tag that should stay on the t-shirt has the garment size, origin of manufacture, washing instructions and fabric composition information - it is a legal requirement to have this information on any garments that are sold in New Zealand, so we keep these ones on.


    What can be tagged?

    Unfortunately, not all of our apparel can be tagged. We've made a list of the products that can be tagged. If you're wanting something tagged but it's not on the list, sorry, we can't re-tag it.


    The Tags

    You can provide us with the tags that you've already had made, or just the designs, and we will sort everything. 



    Please allow an extra week for delivery, as installing your custom labels can take some time depending on how busy our seamstress is.


    The Price

    The price of re-labelling your apparel does depend on a few things, please Contact Us for a quote.  Once your labels have been produced, they can cost as little as $0.95 per garment to install (plus GST).

  • Fabric Types

    We have several different fabric compositions to suit any printing method. 

    If you're screenprinting, our range of 100% Cotton apparel is perfect. 

    If you're looking for 100% polyester apparel, we have lots of that here.

    We also have a t-shirt especially for sublimation printing. This is a 100% polyester t-shirt from Gildan that has been created especially for sublimation printing. You'll find that t-shirt here.

Placing your order

Placing your order for the first time can be complicated.
