There is no time for cut-and-dried monotony.
There is time for work. And time for love.
That leaves no other time.

Print Dolls

Welcome to Printhaus, we are hand screenprinters of designer yardage fabrics –We handprint continuous pattern yardage (meterage) from 20 metres to 1000 metres for fashion, furnishings and costuming. We are the bridge for Australian designers being able to create unique prints in small – mid size runs on shore and define their mark on the market – wherever that is.

Screenhaus are traditional handprinters of unique and designer screenprinted yardage on most fabrics. Being an age old process – we are environmentally focused and use 100% (Currently being evaluated for Organic Certification) waterbased inks and derive our authenticity by our use of an age old system in a printing arena that has remained largely unchanged for 100 years.

Quality driven – we work with many designers for catwalks and design houses around Australia and sometimes the world.

If you are interested in the process of screenprinting yardage and want to see it happen, we have an information / demonstration night we do every 2 – 3 months.

Ask questions – get answers – see it all from concept to finished print – dispell the myths and learn the inside line of producing great yardage.

A great crowd and a relaxed night with a few drinks – for designers of all diciplines, cutters, makers, students – all welcome.

Art is history

Design is timeless

Brand is everything

Fashion is now
