Waterbased printing


We offer three main methods of branding:

Waterbased Screen Printing

Screen Printed Teatowels are our main product, we utitilise water based dye to ensure the end result is water absorbent and soft. Using this process the ink effectively sits inside of the cotton itself.

We do also print Plastisol onto apparel and some other textiles.


While Waterbased Screenprinting is the best method for Teatowels. Embroidery is great for Shirts and Aprons and is long lasting and look extremely classy.


Digital printing is a great option when printing a small quantity or when a design cannot be replicated using spot colour Waterbased Dye Printing.
