Custom Printing Tea Towels for over 25 years

Proudly printed in New Zealand for Over 25 years!

Initially Registered as Cheers and Beers Limited our founder James Crooks initially specialised in sourcing and indent for promotional products. It was during a trip to England Jim spotted Schools fundraising using tea towels.

Following the untimely passing of Jim in 2013, the business was Registered as Graphics on Shirts Limited, however we kept our strong focus on teatowels and sourcing our own towels.

Tea Towels are printed using Waterbased inks, this is great news as it means the towels can be used for drying! It also means they can be ironed if you are into that. The print is a dye and sits inside of the tea towel. The tea towels are 100% Cotton and will shrink a little, hence the ridiculous initial size.

The towels actually look, feel and dry much better after the first wash. If you want to avoid shrinkage you can stretch the towels back out while they are wet, hang dry and cold water wash only.

Looking for something easy to stock, sell and post, what about custom tea towel printing?

Tea towels are a fantastic Canvas for your (or contracted) artwork. Teatowels make great products, they are fantastically versatile and usable. Although always slow simmering, printed tea towels have taken off in popularity with New Zealand artist’s charging huge amounts for their artworks and brands quickly realising the demand and ease of storage and postage of teatowels.

With retail prices ranging wildly from under $10.00 right up over $50.00 ea you really do set the price.

Could Tea Towel Fundraising work for me?

Tea towels are great, you do not have to order stock of differing sizes, the entry price is low and you set the sell price.

Schools and Kindergarten tea towels work particularly well, as they fold easily and are hard to damage in the post they make the perfect gift for overseas relatives, be it over the Cook Strait or Pacific Ocean.

By using Order forms and multibuy strategies fundraising with tea towels can be unique and effective.

Using children’s portraits or artwork adds unrivalled sentimental value.

Agencies love promotional tea towels.

What a better way to get your advertisement in the door than to give out something useful, something useful that is also a huge blank canvas for your brand. Try printed tea towels for your next promotion.
