Helpful Information


There are no minimums, you can literally order just one item at a time. For small runs we use digital printing which is good for one offs, sampling or print on demand. Alternatively, for runs over 50 units of the same design we use screen printing which is much more economical and is better for business customers. For designs with 5 or more colours, we have an MOQ of 150 units.

This is due to the complicated set up process, which becomes economical in larger quantities. This minimum only applies to the print, you can mix and match clothing types, their colours and sizes for no extra, as long as the print stays the same.

If you are looking to order just a handful of printed tees/hoodies etc, we recommend DTG (digital printing) as for digital printing which have no minimums. Digital printing is a bit more pricey than screen printing, but it's more flexible. You can print just one unit with no setup cost using our low volume t-shirt order t-shirt designer.

We can give you a price instantly online: To do that we need a little information about what kind of product and print you would like a price for. In brief, single colour screen printed t-shirts are the best value way to go if you're looking for a large number at a low price. Screen printing works by printing one colour at a time, so if your design has lots of colours, it will cost a bit more. The setup is time consuming, but once you get going it's very low cost, so Screen printing becomes economical for orders over 50 garments of the same print design.

For lower numbers, DTG (digital garment printing) is great as there's no set up. We also have a dedicated factory that prints t-shirts, even 1 offs, at affordable prices. It's more expensive than screen printing, but it's possible to order just one or two completely customisable products.

Easy! It's not about finding a new supplier, our economies of scale, sustainability and product quality make us the best value printer in the UK. Most often price control is about reigning in design choices.

1. Reduce the number of applications or prints. Lose that sleeve print, back print and neck print, and stick with the traditional chest print area: From almost a million t-shirts printed, we've never seen a simple front print design outperformed by a tee with loads of applications on the front, back, sleeve etc. Yet they can be double or triple the cost! Keep it simple.

2. Reduce the number of colours. Screen printing works by setting up and putting down each block colour, one after the other. This means that if you have 8 colours in a really busy design, you'll find the setup cost proportionally higher with the increased complexity of the job. Simple, one colour designs that contrast well with the garment are super popular in our experience, and the price is lower.

3. Increase the volume. Much of the cost of the printing is in the setup and quality checks before printing. So increasing the order size by 10% will not increase the order price by 10%. Although re-orders are easy at Rapanui factory, it's much more cost effective to order more now, than top up later.

We require your artwork to be in vector format here. Vector format artwork is created in Adobe Photoshop software (AI, EPS); vector files have crisp edges and give the best quality results for screen printing.

The best way to tell if your design is in vector format is by zooming in as far as possible onto the edges of your artwork and if it’s pixelated then it is too low res for us to work with.

Digital direct to garment printing is a little different to screen printing, in that we can print full CMYK process colours. This means that you can supply a JPEG, bitmap, vector, whatever. Because of the thread count or the roughness of a t-shirt, expect a print quality that looks around about 150dpi - not quite as sharp as paper (it's a fabric after all!) The print area is around 30cm X 40cm and DTG orders are placed via our online t-shirt designer tool.

We recommend downloading our template and designing in photoshop, saving for web as a PNG24 with transparency. Gradients are supported, but work much better on light garments. With DTG artwork, please also look out for detail - at a lower resolution than your screen, a t-shirt print of a detail (i.e. tiny text less than 1mm) may not resolve. For fastest service, best quality and lower prices, we recommend choosing a white garment for DTG as a first choice.

We can complete printing on the front and back here; our maximum print dimensions for screen printing is 29cm by 38cm and for digital printing 30cm by 40cm.

We’ve tried sleeve, neck, hem prints, the whole lot and from our experience, we found that they doubled production time and doubled costs.

Our data from hundreds of thousands of t-shirt sales shows that a quality print applied the simple way, on the front chest, is by the far the most successful way to sell t-shirts.

No; your design belongs to you, as per our terms of service. Our team of designers work on contract for some of Europe's biggest brands. We're not stuck for ideas and so we won’t be stealing yours.

Firstly it's best to scale your artwork in your document setup, and provide us with dimension and placement information (i.e. 20cm x 20cm, 8cm down from the neck seam). Please understand that despite some high-tech equipment and processes in our factory, screen printing is still a skilled, artisanal manufacturing process. Manually putting the t-shirts on the platens means millimeters of variance in print application: Each shirt is truly unique and hand crafted, from the cotton reels, cutting presses and sewing benches.

To match colour, we use the Pantone colour book, Pantone cross-referencing software and ink reference guides. Please note, if you use your monitor to get a Pantone, it may not match your printed product due to variance in monitor colour displays. It is best to use a known Pantone, or a Pantone book under a calibrated daylight bulb for exact match.

Not unless you are having the same design on children and adults. As standard, we use the same design across all sizes so the small size product will have the same art dimensions as the XXL.

There's nothing to worry about here, due to the individuality of everyone the t-shirt size changes but the prints look the same and natural when worn.

For this reason it is standard practise in the industry to scale a print to a "medium" size t-shirt, and print this design on all sizes in your print run.
