About Us

It starts with a kid who loved nothing more than drawing cars...

He "Grew Up" and time for drawing cars seemed to disappear....

One day a very much older version of that kid has got a pencil in his hand and starts doodling cars again. He's digging it, he comes up with a design and reckons it could look cool on a shirt. His family says "Give it a crack"

And here we are...

G'Day, Chris here, I'm that kid. Alongside me is my sister Kristy. Technically she's my sister in law but we've been around each other long enough to drop the in law!

Together we started Forty Horse in 2014, screen printing our designs out of my house. We started with Aircooled VW designs initially due to my addiction to those noisy, smelly, slow cars.  But I'm pretty well into all classic cars so we have since branched out into other car designs, with a mostly Australian theme.

These days we work out of our shop in South Windsor. We're very much into doing it ourselves here - I wield the crayons doing the artwork, whilst Kristy looks after production and the admin side of things. I also look after ordering the Chinese for lunch on Fridays....

Whilst we started with screen print, we've moved over to Direct to Garment printing. This allows us to offer a much larger range of designs in full colour on a wider variety of apparel.

Anyway, that's enough about us, have a look around and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.

Have a good one!
