Whats the best way to supply artwork?
It's best to send either .ai / .eps / .psd / .pdf. The artwork needs to be set-up at print size with a resolution of 300 dpi or above. Each colour needs to be on a separate layer and fonts need to be outlined. Please note that we can’t print full bleed so artwork will need a border of at least 10 mm on all sides.
What is your turnaround time?
We do our best to stick to 10 working days, though this can be subject to change in busier periods. If you need your job done in a hurry we can usually accommodate that but a rush fee may be added.
What type of inks do you use?
We only use water-based pre mixed inks. For fabric we use Permaset Aqua which offers great coverage, wash stability and soft feel. For paper we use Aqua Art which is unrivalled in quality of finish and strong, bold colour. They can be thinned to create transparent overlays and are available in metallic and fluorescent colours.
How many colours can you print?
On fabric / apparel the maximum we can print is four. On paper it’s technically limitless, though time and cost need to be considered. Please email to discuss.
What’s the maximum print size for t-shirts?
The print size is determined by what will comfortably fit on the smallest t-shirt in the print run. Maximum dimensions are approx. 400 x 500 mm
what's the maximum print size for paper?
The largest paper size we can print is A1.
Can I change the print colour mid-run?
Yes! There will be an additional charge to cover the time taken to washout the screen and start over.
Do you deliver?
Yes! We usually work on a collection only basis, however if you do need something delivered it can be arranged. We use Addison Lee courier service within London and UPS / DPD for further afield. Please email for prices.
whats the best way to setup artwork?
Basic print prep / bit mapping is included with each job. Any extra work required (colour separation, trapping etc) may incur an additional charge. You will be sent a print preview before going ahead with the job to approve any changes.
Do you have minimum quantities?
Technically no, however setup fees per job are fixed so the larger the order the cheaper cost per unit. If you’ve just gotta have that 1 of 1 print done and are happy to pay for it, we’ll be happy to do it.
Can you match colours?
Yes! For paper printing we can match any coated Pantone reference (for best results these must be picked from a Pantone book). For fabric we have Permaset sample books in the studio that you can view. It's often best to look at colours in person and we always welcome clients into the studio to discuss options.
Do you supply t-shirts?
Yes! For t-shirts we offer two options – for premium jobs we recommend Earth Positive from Continental Clothing, they are climate neutral and made from organic cotton. The fit, cut and print quality is unrivalled. For a lower price point we use Anvil Fashion Fit which offer the perfect combination of quality and price. We have accounts with all the major suppliers so if you did have something specific in mind then please let us know.
Do you supply paper?
Yes! We stock Heritage White 315 gsm from John Purcell Papers as standard. We've found it to be a winning combination of quality and affordability. Other papers are available including GF Smith Colorplan range and Somerset fine art papers. Please email with your requirements and we'll be happy to advise.
Can I supply my own t-shirts / paper?
Yes! There is some limits to what we can print though, please email for details. You will also need to allow for wastage / miss-prints. Although we do our best to keep this to a minimum it is a hand done process and mistakes will happen.
How long do you keep my screens for after the job is competed?
Unfortunately we don't have the space or the number of screens to keep them once a job has been completed, however we do offer a discounted set up fee on all re-prints.
