PRINT TYPE - ROYAL®
We're super proud of our prints, and like to think that it sets us apart from the rest.
We've spent years researching and developing the best print method to keep up with the ever evolving logo and design trends. Logo's nowadays often feature multiple colours and gradients that are integral to the identity of the logo, and with traditional apparel printing methods, these aren't always able to be replicated.
With our Royal® print method, we combine the hand feel and durability of a screen print, with the capability of digital printing, similar to DTG technology.
Unlike DTG though, no matter the colour or type of material, we can print on it and ensure the vibrancy of our wide ranging colour band.
Our Royal® method consists of using a large flatbed printer to print ink in reverse onto a film, the film is then run through a curing unit to bring it to a state we can handle and won't run. From there, we press and apply it to the garment, removing the film and leaving only the ink behind.
Gradients, 1000's of colours, precise prints and NO vinyl!
HOW DURABLE IS IT?
Super! We've ran test prints with small lettering and loads of colours through 50+ washes and our prints retained their stretch and vibrancy right the way through.
Different to screen print and other similar methods, our prints stretch with the garment rather than cracking.
WHAT COLOURS CAN IT DO?
Our Royal® print process is CMYK (it's actually slightly wider than traditional CMYK, but if you need us to colour match please ask as majority of the time we can get pretty close). We have the ability to Pantone (PMS) colour match. All you need to do is indicate the colors in your order.
We can't print in RGB - this will become apparent with neon/fluro colours. Talk to us though, as we do have workarounds for it!
WHAT OTHER PRINT OPTIONS DO YOU HAVE?
We can offer cut vinyl or printed vinyl - whilst we don't do a lot of vinyl, it is great to be able to offer a solution for metallic or fluro options that wouldn't otherwise be able to be produced with our Royal® print method.
HOW DOES IT LOOK?
Oh.. you tell us!
On all of our individual apparel products, we offer volume pricing on both the garment and the printing.
This can be viewed on each product page and works based on how many of each piece of apparel are ordered.
Look out for a table that resembles the below on each page to identify the applicable discount based on how many are purchased.
For example, if you were to purchase 10x of the ASColour Staple Tee, with printing on both the front and back, you would be eligible for a 15% discount off the shirts and printing cost.
The discount applies to each product, and does cover different variants. So if you wanted to purchase 5x Black and 5x White, in differing sizes, you would still be eligible for the 15% discount!
HOW DO I GET THE DISCOUNT?
Easy! It's automatically applied in the cart. Just add all of your items you wish to purchase, with the required print locations and it will be calculated for you.
WHAT IS YOUR LEAD TIME?
We do our best to get orders out as soon as possible, however our lead time can extend to 3 weeks from artwork approval. Ask us at the time of ordering as to what our expected lead time is and we can give you a more definitive answer.
We ship all our orders either via Australia Post or Startrack. Whilst every effort is made to ship your order as soon as possible, there can be delays after the order has left us. We provide tracking on all orders so you can identify when its coming!
Because we offer tens of thousands of colours and sizes of apparel, from workwear, to regular apparel, to hats and to bags, it's impossible for us to hold stock of everything we offer.
We hold stock for our popular items, but luckily, we've got some pretty good support from our suppliers that allows us to be able to order the stock in time to get your order out.
Sometimes however, there may be items that are both out of stock with us, and our suppliers. We'll always let you know ahead of time, and give you an ETA date, but usually have a solution of similar stock also.
