Screen printing for creative people and brands.


About us

Blacken is a locally owned and operated screen printing studio in Stanmore Bay, Whangaparaoa, Hibiscus Coast in Auckland. We specialize in screen printed shirts and hoodies for contractors, bands, artists, entrepreneurs, start ups and established businesses.

Our website also features an online store selling our in house designs and AS Colour Blanks.

We enjoy offering a service that is affordable, straight forward and ultimately leaves the client happy and walking away with exactly what they wanted.

Katie has worked full time as an artist and printer, as well as in various creative roles for over 10 years. Blacken also has a network of freelance artists on hand to make sure we have the right people to work on your job.

Clear communication

We know that screen printing can sometimes be confusing, so one of our top priorities is to be loud and clear with our communication so everyone is always on the same page.

Whether you know what you want, or you need to have a chat to sort out your ideas. Blacken will help guide you through the process making it easy and painless. We pride ourselves in being able to get your ideas out of your head and onto screens! Check out our Printing FAQ if you want to know anything specific right now.


Blacken use a full range of Vastex gear and top quality inks that we are 100% impressed with.  We are gear nerds and like to think we are always on top of the latest and best products that are available.

Wherever possible we always go with the eco-friendly option. Our clean up gear is supplied by Sgreen Eco-Friendlier chemicals.

As for garments, you can’t go past the range of AS Colour apparel.
