2016 is Coming! Three new calendar designs for the New Year

16 Nov

The new year is fast approaching and if you’re like us, you need a calendar to remind you of what date it is and what the hell you were supposed to be doing! Lucky then, that we’ve got three new calendar designs for the 2016 with all-new feature cars inside.

There’s a Holden-centric calendar, Commodore-themed version and a broad design that we like to call “12 of the Best”, which is a collection of our own favourite automotive images from the last 12 months. Go ahead, take your pick by CLICKING HERE or on the images below.

Not wishing to restrict your calendar-buying experience, you can still purchase calendar designs from years past, too. Simply make sure you select the starting month of your calendar as January 2016 and you’re good to go!

Print All Over: New shirt print designs span entire front!

14 Nov

Our exclusive print-on-demand service has just announced the launch of its new ‘graphic design’ printed t-shirts and they’re kickass! Using die sublimation technology, it’s the first time a print-on-demand service has offered this kind of ability to print all over the front of a garment, from left to right, top to bottom. Better yet, they wear better and longer than normal prints.

Hosking Industries will be rolling out designs on our page over the coming weeks, offering you the opportunity to own custom modified car and bike tees that boast high-quality prints you won’t find anywhere else, bigger than anyone else! You can see three of our first designs below. CLICK HERE or on the images to order yours for Xmas!
