I use DTD for instant designs plus I use Studio1 because I know that my design jobs will be completed efficiently, without question and with high quality results. Studio1 offers the highest level of experience, not only from my design expectation but thru to my production execution. I would highly recommend Studio1 if you are looking for a design service that will take your business to the next level.

  • 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!

    Michelle W.
    Kids Fashion Supplier
  • 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.

    Greg Sperling
    Viral Tees
  • 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 ( 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.

    Kidswear Supplier
  • 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 or briefed in for new art – are always on trend and of the highest calibre. And always with quick turn around too.

    Ryan Smith
    Mens & Womens T-Shirts
  • 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.
