On a sunny Dunedin day eight years ago, an old door caught the eyes of Chris and Jon. Being creative types, they saw an opportunity here — a chance to create their first manual screen printing machine and begin printing their own t-shirts. The first self-printed tees for their fashion label Moodie Tuesday came out surprisingly well. So well that people started sending work their way. With opportunities knocking at their door, the boys saw a future. Printing t-shirts was alright, so they bought their first four-colour, one-station manual carousel. After printing 2,000 tees in two weeks, it was time to upgrade again. We’ve come a long way since then.
We are creators, innovators, and champions of sustainable and exceptional merchandise. Our goal is to bring brands to life through beautifully crafted products that are desirable, enduring and don’t cost the environment.

An avid smoko participant, a moody coffee consumer Print Room's Josh can be found in the screenprint department.
Find yourself at a dinner party with Jessie and you'll more than likely be dining on traditional tofu and vege dumplings and downing a soy latte or two.
