We provide awesome, downloadable,
current trend t-shirt designs for digital printing.
Our expertise gives your products a strategic edge in the current market place when our designs are printed on your products.

Here's our story so far...

 
2000
Greg Merrilees started a T-Shirt Design business (Studio1) in Melbourne, Australia.

We have been passionately designing t-shirts with his design team for around 15 years for a range of clothing brands including some of the world’s largest retailers, including: Just Group, Cotton On, Myer, Target, Witchery, plus many others.

2005
We designed a lot of graphics with high profile brands and licenses including:

Which lead to designing consumer products, and packaging design for global retailers including:

We kept getting busier, so we hired a few more full-time designers.

 

 

2008

The big retailers began squeezing out their wholesale suppliers,

as they went vertical and started building their in-house teams, so they could make more profit.

 

2009
At the same time that big retailers went vertical, we noticed a shift happening in the t-shirt market place, where smaller online digital print businesses were emerging, and are now competing with the world’s biggest retailers.

This is mainly due to the fact that digital printing quality is amazing. (Even on dark fabric, and I will share the tech specs shortly.) The printers don’t take up much space and are a lot cheaper to purchase than automated screen printing machines ...

…and it’s also far more economical to print than screen printing on low volumes. 

 

 


2010

Plus with the internet becoming THE number one place to sell t-shirts, smaller businesses just like yours can now offer new designs, printed on your t-shirts and products, on the day that the design is completed!! 

 

The only problem is now that you have a t-shirt printing business, you constantly need new designs, and I know how frustrating it can be searching online only to find designs that are uncreative ‘clip-art’ and that have no thought or passion behind it! and let’s be honest clip art on the whole is not very cool to wear!!

 

2011
So that’s why we created this website, because it's time to take a piece of the pie that the big retailers have dominated for so long and give it back to the little guy, (YOU) and that's why we offer awesome ‘latest trend’ cool designs to small online digital print businesses like yours.

 

2013
We constantly release designs, and as soon as they are available you can download them, print them on your products, or photoshop them on to your products, put them online to offer to your market.
All within minutes. That’s huge advantage over the big retailers! We call that: 'Speed to market!'

 

 

2015
Another advantage we have is our ‘Secret Weapon’ Trend Forecaster. Karen constantly researches the globe and has done for the past 10 years, exploring trade shows, cat walks, and retail outlets to culminate the latest trends into commercially viable and wearable designs that your prospects will most likely love as much as we do!!

 

2017
We are constantly releasing new designs and helpful content for you to have more of a variety of designs and helpful blog posts so that you can grow your t-shirt printing business faster.
Be sure to visit our blog to stay up to date with Karen's trend releases.

  • Just wanted to say thank you to Greg and the team at Download T-Shirt Designs & Studio 1 for the incredible artwork you have produced for me over the last 9 years.

  • We are a leading Australian surfwear retailer. We have an in-house design team that is struggling to keep up with the demand, so now that we have found you guys it's really helping with our work load. Having a balance between our design studio & your website full of quality T-Shirt designs that are ready to go is the perfect solution for us.

  • Your t-shirt designs are amzing! They are on-trend with current looks & are super value! I have just printed my first range of T-Shirt graphics that I bought from your website & they are selling fast!

  • Hi, Just wanted to let you know that the last batch of designs that I purchased from your site have been selling extremely well. Sales are up by 300% on my previous batch that another team designed for me.

  • Premiere had previously only used in house design teams, and I found that having a balance between in house design and an outside resource such as Studio 1’s website (Downloadt-shirtdesigns.com) is a breath of fresh air. Greg and the team are well versed at understanding my objectives, however with their knowledge of fashion and ability to forecast trends, the results are normally above and beyond initial expectations.

  • We’ve been consistently using Studio-1 for graphics over the past few years, and have never been disappointed. Nothing is ever too difficult, too much of a problem for their team. The designs – whether bought from their existing designs on DownloadT-ShirtDesigns.com or briefed in for new art – are always on trend and of the highest calibre. And always with quick turn around too.

  • Nearly 12 years ago I found Studio1. One of my first presentations to major retailers in Australia and New Zealand with Studio1′s artwork had the immediate impact that was needed to get the buyers to sign off on the orders. From that time all those years ago to this day Studio 1 is the only graphic design company we use. I could not recommend Studio 1 anymore highly, not only are Greg and his team incredibly talented but to top it all off they are a great company to work with, nothings too hard, always willing to listen and most importantly always coming up with the goods.
