Frequently Asked Questions

Can't find the answer you're looking for? We've shared some of our most frequently asked questions to help you out!


Are you a New Zealand company?
Yes! We're 100% New Zealand owned and operated, based in Ashburton.
Are your products listed anywhere else for sale?
No, our products are only available from here on our online store.
I have an idea I'd like to discuss with you, when is the best time to call?
When our printers are running it can be very noisy and difficult to hear the phone ring. We do our best to answer but alot of the time we cant leave the printers for more than a few minutes. 
The best time to call is in the morning between 9-10am. If this doesnt suit or we dont answer, you'll find us faster to reply via email, facebook messenger or instagram.


What are DTF Transfers?
Direct to film transfers, otherwise known as DTF Transfers, are a great way to create fashionable and long lasting garments. They involve taking a design and printing it onto a special film material that is then ready to press onto T-Shirts, sweatshirts and other garments by using a heat press. Read more.
What are UV DTF Transfers?
UV DTF (Ultraviolet Direct to Film) transfers are a cutting-edge printing technology used to apply designs, logos, and graphics onto hard, flat surfaces. The design is printed onto the film using UV ink and is then cured using UV light, making it durable and resistant to fading, scratching, and water damage. The film is then applied to the desired surface, creating a high-quality, vibrant, and long-lasting print. UV DTF transfers are versatile and can be used on various materials like glass, metal, and ceramics, making them popular for creating personalised gifts, promotional items, and branded products.

Do you print custom DTF and UV DTF Transfers?
Yes we do! We've outlined all the details for each transfer method here:
- Custom DTF Transfers
- Custom UV DTF Transfers
Can you match my brand colours?
Unfortunately we're unable to match your colour. The current DTF and UV DTF printers are very temperamental and dont make adjustments easy or quick. There are also many factors like temperature and humidity that can change the print results significantly. We hope to be able to offer this in the future as the technology evolves.
Do you offer heat pressing services?
Yes absolutely! If you cant DIY, we can do it for you. 
We have a sister site that is focused on this service, producing the final product for you.
