How To Get Your Own Artwork Made Into Apparel

Many artists ask the question, “Can I turn my own artwork into apparel?” and we’re pleased to say that the answer is yes!

We specialise in custom printing, including sublimation printing which is great for stamping your artwork on apparel.

Sublimation printing, or all-over printing, is excellent for artwork because it uses heat to transfer ink directly onto a garment instead of using ink that will dye the clothing. Under heat, the gas binds with the fabric, leaving the design permanently embedded into the fabric - rather than just being printed onto it.


The Custom Sublimation Process

Artists, if you’re looking to get your work printed on clothing, you may be worried about the price, especially if you’re new to the game. Thankfully, we're here to help. If you are in the market for a high-quality, 100% Australian-made print, Deadly Streetwear can arrange this at a small minimum of 15 units, charged at wholesale pricing.

Alternatively, if you are working to a strict budget and would prefer the more cost-effective offshore options, our brother company, JC Promotions & Apparel can do this too. Basically, we’ve got you covered no matter what you’re looking for.

Regardless of which production option is best for you, our process is simple and tailored to ensure that you get the best possible results. This is what you can expect:

  1. You send us your design in a high-resolution PDF, EPS or CDR file.
    If you only have the original artwork, we can redraw this for you for a fee (this is typically $60 if the artwork is intended for internal use or $150 if you would like a full branding file pack sent to you).
  2. We will show you the final art files and a clothing mock-up. This is where we’ll ask for your vision, and offer any suggestions of our own to help you achieve the highest quality possible.
  3. Then, once approved, we move to production and bring your vision to life!

We know how much a piece of art can mean to the artist that created it, so all printing work goes through a rigorous approval process to ensure that you are 100% happy with the final product. So what are you waiting for? Get in touch with us to discuss which production option is best suited to you!
