Custom T'Shirt Printing Service
Organic T’Shirt Printing Service
About Our Service
As well as printing our own clothing, we print custom T’Shirt batches for others. We are artists ourselves and pay particular attention to quality and detail. We operate from our home-based studio in the trees, and due to having minimal overheads and an efficient process, we are able to offer a quality personalised printing service much cheaper than generally found elsewhere.
We own and operate a DTG (Digital Textile Garment) printer; this advanced printing technology allows us to print whatever is on our computer screen onto natural fabric. Utilising this digital printing method, there is no excess or unused ink- resulting in zero waste being produced!
The ink we use is a permanent water based textile ink specifically formulated for this purpose, which after printing is then heat cured. Rather than leaving a thick plastic film sitting on top of the garment like screen printing, the ink infuses into the fabric more like a dye. The final texture is indistinguishable from the unprinted areas of the garment. It looks and feels great!
Our printer uses CMYK ink, which results in unlimited colour tones like a normal bubble jet printer, and works great for all light tone fabric. However, it doesn’t print white ink, so the darker the colour and tone of the fabric, the darker the final print result will be. For example, we cannot print on black fabric as the ink will not be visible when infused into the fabric. We can print on darker colour tones, but need to adjust the design accordingly to complement the colour of the fabric. We generally always try to work with light colours and tones as this gives the best result.

Sustainable manufacturing is the creation of manufactured products through economically-sound processes that minimise negative environmental impacts while conserving energy and natural resources. Sustainable manufacturing also enhances employee, community, and product safety.
We recognise that garment manufacturing is one of the most environmentally damaging and harmful industrial sectors on the planet, and we take decisive and often pioneering steps towards addressing the many negative impacts. Starting with the sourcing of raw materials, our Company ensures full traceability of all fibres, choosing low impact cotton, Tencel® Lyocel, bamboo viscose and recycled polyester, 100% certified organic cotton, and recycled organic cotton blended with recycled polyester.
We have been a vivid supporter of many high-profile campaigns, including the Clean Cotton Campaign, Pick Your Cotton Carefully, and have been working with the Environmental Justice Foundation and the Pesticide Action Network for many years. We are an active contributor to the International Working Group on the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Our Company is certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard and the Global Recycle Standard.
Yarns and Fabrics
The quality of our yarns and fabrics is the foundation to delivering the highest quality garments. Organic certified fabrics are dyed in our zero-discharge dye house, where all the water is recycled in a closed-loop system.
We control the spinning process of almost seventy percent of all the yarns used in production as part of our vertically-integrated manufacturing structure, with the remainder being carefully sourced externally. All the yarns used by our Company are fully combed and ring spun.
All the fabrics are knitted at our in-house facilities, and dyed with GOTS approved chemicals, using low-water and controlled waste discharge processes, certified to OekoTex 100 Class I standard and conforming to REACH.
Carbon Footprint Reduction
The carbon footprint (CO2e) is the total carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and other greenhouse gases emitted during the cultivation and harvesting of cotton, fibre processing, textile production, packaging, transportation and warehousing. In January 2008, we became the first company in the world to calculate the carbon footprint and place the Carbon Reduction Label on textile products.
We have reduced the carbon footprint of organic products by around 90% through a combination of innovative product design, low impact organic agriculture, efficiency in manufacturing, and by replacing standard grid electricity with renewable wind power. We do not use carbon offsets and our footprint calculations are certified by the Carbon Trust Certifications in the U.K.
It has been calculated that a single T-shirt from our organic range saves around 7 kilograms of CO2e. Having taken the greenhouse gas emissions to pre-industrial levels, all of our organic products carry the registered mark “Climate Neutral”.
With your support, we are helping to revolutionise the global textile industry.
