How we create your tea towels

With our two print method options
All of our Tea Towels are proudly printed in Australia with genuine care and excitement! Each printing process has its strengths. Our team will recommend which method is most suitable once final artwork has been sighted and an idea of quantity is known.

We’re excited to offer state of the art digital printing which reproduces detail in its entirety - photos, watercolour and fine intricate detail. In either method, the ink is colourfast, fade resistant and will maintain longevity (following our recommended care instructions).

Digital Printing

Digitally printing on tea towels
Digital printing involves artwork processed by computer and printed directly on the surface of the garment, using high quality water based inks. It's not a heat transfer or appliqué. Best used for watercolour and photographs - it is also financially economical for smaller runs.

Great for:

>> Personal gifts
>> Boutique Stores
>> Artists and Photographers.

Screen Printing

Machine for screen printed tea towels
Screen printing is the best option for designs that require a high level of vibrancy, as the inks used for screen printing are much thicker than those used with digital printing. It is often more financially viable on larger runs, but not as suitable for smaller print runs.

Great for:

>> Event merchandise
>> Branded products
>> Weddings.
