become a contributing artist

Are you a NZ artist? We'd love you to join us!

We are constantly looking for local artists to join us as contributors! Only a few pairs of eyes can enjoy an art print on the wall, but on a tee? The potential is huge. We see so many talented NZ artists' work that would look amazing on a tee. doodlewear is a collective space where people searching for creative tees can find NZ artist prints in a wearable form, all in one place.

High quality garment printing.

Supporting local artists and production, all artists in the doodlewear space are NZ creatives, and all our garment printing is done here in Auckland. You can be sure your art print will be of a high standard. We print each garment individually to order, with care, on high quality 100% cotton tees from trusted NZ brand – AS Colour.

All our garments are digitally printed, so your shirt still feels like a shirt, without any of that nasty cracking (that's associated with other types of prints). We use the latest Epson digital garment printer, which has the finest printhead nozzles (compared to other garment printers out there), this means we can achieve smooth gradients, complex colours and fine detail – perfect for art.

We use Oeko-Tex certified eco friendly inks so our prints not only have great colour and good wash/UV durability, but are safe for adults, children and infants.

NZ ARTISTS ONLY

doodlewear is NZ artist only, so your art won't be competing for attention against all the artists in the world (unlike some of the bigger sites). 

While doodlewear is designed and produced in NZ, that doesn’t mean our customers won’t be from all over the world, as we ship worldwide. 

They will be confident knowing they are buying a kiwi-made, quality and artsy garment. Majority of shoppers will also be leaning more towards NZ art interests.

YOU, THE ARTIST BEHIND THE ART IS IMPORTANT TO US

It’s important to us that our customers are aware of the artist behind the art they’ve purchased. Your name will be listed on our website and as an option, you can include an A7

This could include your name/logo/blurb/other products details etc. These are printed complimentary, free of charge for you. (One generic card per artist. Artist to provide file for print).

BASE PRICE TEES FOR YOURSELF

Going to a market? Want to sell your tees in person? Order at base price only!

LOW SUBSCRIPTION FEE

Pay the equivalent of TWO coffees a month* only!

The bonus of working as a collective – we keep this fee as low as possible, running on a ‘crowd fund’ kind of concept, where the small subcription fee of each artist will contribute towards covering expenses such as running this website, marketing and advertising, website development etc. to bring all artists in this collab more potential shoppers and opportunities.

*Annually: $2.50/week. Or Monthly: $4/week.

Simple pricing system.

Base price + Your chosen margin = Retail price.

[Base price: Covers our service and the operational costs involved in producing each garment. Your margin: You control how much margin you earn per sale. Whether it's 15%, 50% or 120%, you get to decide what you sell your art for. Retail price: This is the final price your customers see.]
