Back to School

back to school

These summer holidays have been wonderful. As we’ve enjoyed the long hot nights, music festivals and BBQ’s outside it’s hard not to see the time flying by and soon it will be time to start getting the kids ready for ‘back to school’.

The back to school process can often be a tough one but here at Acorn Printing, we believe we can supply you with many of our back to school supplies. We can personalise your selection as well to help you avoid those “Have you checked the lost and found?” conversations.

We offer a wide range of back to school items from shirts and cardigans to bags and aprons which can be personalised for you in a variety of ways.

Our in-house design team is happy to help you with the personalisation of back to school gear. Our extremely friendly team are there to help at any point and can offer ideas for your personalisation.

if you would like to contact us at any point please call our freephone number 0800 0190 522 or email our team at

We can also be found on Facebook too! Feel free to leave us a message on there and we will try to respond to you as quickly as possible.

We hope to speak to you soon.

New Full Colour Screen Printing Service

We now offer a full colour screen printing service. Check it out in action in our video.

This new service means we can screen print more complex designs like the one shown in the video. We recently used this technique for printing t shirts for Newton Faulkner which produced a fantastic colour effect that wouldn’t normally be able to be achieved using traditional screen printing.

Normally, these kinds of designs require us to use our direct to garment printer, which gives great results, but means we’re limited to one t shirt at a time. This method of screen printing allows us to print 100s of t shirts per hour. Our work for Newton Faulkner we printed 800 t shirts in two hours.

What does this mean for our clients? 

It allows for a very quick turnaround of jobs and importantly it will be cheaper for you!

This method uses a thinner ink, meaning it works best with lighter coloured garments, particularly white.

Whilst we can use this new technique on any garment, it will work best on t shirts and hoodies.

Contact us today on freephone 0800 0190 552 or email for more information on our Full Colour Screen Printing Service and we can guide you in the right direction.

Custom Band T Shirts

Custom Band T ShirtsWe’re very lucky at Acorn to work with a wide range of clients. Some of our latest work has been providing custom band T shirts for bands to sell on their tours.

One of our recent jobs was this t shirt for Newton Faulkner’s tour of the UK. if you attended one of the gigs you may have picked one up.

We’re really proud of this print as we utilised a full-colour screen print meaning we can print great designs like the colour splatter in this example. Our clients then benefit from a cheaper rate and as it is screen printed we can print 100s of t shirts per hour.

We have a huge range of t shirts for you to choose from, pick from 100s of different colours, styles, brands, and sizes. Can’t find what you’re looking for? Just get in touch.

Finally, if you’re a Newton Faulkner fan, want to buy the t shirt but didn’t make the gigs, then don’t worry, you can get them directly from his website.

If you’re looking for some custom band T shirts, just contact us on freephone 0800 0190 552 or at

Drop us a message on Facebook. We’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
