How does it work?Updated a year ago

What type of printing does Threadheads do?

Based in Melbourne, we're a sustainable and print-on-demand small business. We use water-based inks and print all our garments using the DTG method (direct to garment printing), which isn't a dodgy heat press transfer/rubber coating. 

This method is not only friendly to our environment, but it allows us to achieve long lasting sharp images and beautiful vivid colours. Seriously - you can wash 'em a million times and the print will stay vibrant and groovy.

Is it good quality?
Buttery soft threads with prints more vibrant than the juiciest watermelon that will last wash after wash. Our print quality is one of our trademarks and this is backed up by over 5,000 five star reviews from our customers around the world ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

What products can I print on?
T-shirts, tanks, hoodies, sweaters, cropped tees, heavy tees, kid’s apparel, mugs, totes, art prints and more!

How long do orders normally take?
Our production times vary with how busy we are! We are currently looking at a 2 - 5 business day turnaround for your threads, plus shipping.

How do I get the best print?
To make sure our print team can print your snazzy threads, please follow the below guidelines:

  • Image Quality
    Please make sure the file has 300 dpi resolution and the format is .ai or .png. Google images will usually be low quality so proceed with caution!
  • Illustrations & text
    For the best quality, we want hi-res vector versions of your stuff!

If we think your image needs a bit of loving before it goes to print, we’ll let you know.
