Design Stage

Once you confirm the package, the next stage is your design.

If you already have an existing design, we can help you put the design on the shirts through our partner-suppliers. We will require you to send to us the vector file of the artwork. If your design is not compatible with the requirement, we can recreate the design at a quoted price.

Note: A vector file is a scalable type of a graphic where the designer can resize it without compromising its quality. These are usually provided in EPS form.

If you don’t have a design, our awesome team can help you conceptualise and create a design with our packages available for you to choose from.

All packages include revisions which are sent to you through email. Revisions show the draft/mock-up of your design for you to look over and get back to us with any feedback on updates and changes.

A 50% down payment is required to initiate the design process and final payment is required on completion.

How to Order your Custom Shirts

Picking a Supplier

Once the design is approved by you, you will then choose between our Australian or International suppliers. The two suppliers vary in terms of prices and turn around and both provide great quality material & print. Both are trusted suppliers and offer great service to all our clients.

Note: when a supplier is confirmed, we then will finalise the artwork which may take a few more days to ensure your design fits their templates correctly.

Sample & Order

We always recommend that our clients should request a sample because we want you to see the actual shirt before bulk production.  Samples are optional but it is always good to check the finished product before confirming final order. This also allows us to make any minor design changes before ordering bulk production.  

Samples are paid for before bulk production and you will need to provide us with:

  • Quantity
  • Size & Style
  • Shipping Address

Finalising Order

When you have finalised your order, we will organise an invoice for the bulk order. Once you have paid the invoice, we will send the order form to the chosen supplier.

The turn around starts from the moment when the supplier approves and finalises the mock-up design. We will then touch base from time to time to ask for an update for your order.

Your custom shirts will arrive straight to your home or office, no need to come to our office unless requested.

Our team is always passionate in terms of helping you to express your passion as well as your business. That is why, aside from basic graphic and web design services, we incorporate custom shirts to our services!
