My first run was 250 so I'll definately be looking for 250 - 500 this time. Foil is ooooo soooooo popular at the moment and is soooooo hard to find someone to do it's crazi. I've just finished working for a brand in America called LRG and want to get my own international standard fashion clothing out in NZ. I'm also looking for someone down south to do my tags and pip tags for relabelling. I'm currently using Patterson upin aux but would like to find some closer to home.
Yeah i know - foil printing is coming back. The best foil printer in NZ that I know of is in Auckland, they foil print for a few streetwear labels we supply. Do you order your garments from the USA or are they from a distributor in NZ? Most NZ distributors will do the label change and pips for you.
At the moment I have just gotten them from the us however I am going to get my next lot of AAA's through AS colour they can apparently re label and do all the other bits and pieces for me. I was looking at a guy down in Invers at Vital signs he could do pretty much everything I needed and was competitively priced. What wsa the name of the printer in AK? Are there any others in the areas I mentioned that you would recommend? Who do you work for?
If you are using AAA then I suggest you check out the Gildan Ultra Cotton T-Shirt. Its almost the same shirt but a little cheaper. same weight, bigger colour range (54 colours) and pre-shrunk cotton. They also have an international fair labour accreditation and can handle all label changing etc for you. Check it out: Gildan Asia/Pacific
In regard to Foil prinitng, try Kiwi T's. Ask for Steve (09) 426 3520 i know from experience they are really good. I haven't heard of Vital Signs, but that doesn't mean much.
