Yes, you can collect at our location. Please note that the order must have been processed through our system before collection. Our customer service team will notify you when the order is ready.
We endeavour to ship the same day or within 24 to 48 hours of receipt of PO, depending on date and time of receipt of PO. We do NOT ship on weekends. We work strictly on the FIFO (First In, First Out) system.
That varies by style. The average number of T-shirts per box is 72 pcs for sizes small to XL, 60 pcs for 2XL, 48 for 3XL, and etc.
Full case or even dozens is the most expeditious way for us to process an order.
Tees are packed in bundles of 6×12 per case/carton. There are 6 x 12 = 72 pcs per box. Therefore, when you order in dozens, the warehouse can open a case and grab a bundle of tees with the full confidence that there are 12 pcs in their hands. If you order 9 pcs, the team has to pull 3 pcs off the bundle. This slows down the process, increases the probability for error, and requires the entire order to go through a secondary audit to minimize errors. Fortunately, most embellishers, be it an embroidery, screen printer, garment dye house or digital printer, prefer to receive orders in even dozens. Generally, they all quote their pricing based on a dozen quantities.
If you would like to view or test our products, we have a simple policy. If you provide us with your UPS or FedEx account details, we will ship two (2) samples at no charge (tees only). If you don’t have a freight account. Set-up an account online: Register & Place an order for 1 pc. In the notes section, indicate the style/color/size of the second sample and we will include it in your existing order.
Most tees follow an industry standard for width (tube size) and body length (from high point shoulder to bottom hem). The fit of a tee is primarily influenced by the shoulder drop, which refers to the length of the shoulder tape to the end of the shoulder, as well as the sleeve length. Even a small difference of 2 inches in the shoulder drop (from neck rib to shoulder curve) can significantly impact the perceived size and looseness of the tee. Two examples of tees with a looser fit are Styles 1301 (Roughneck) and Style 2100 (Retro Ring-spun). On the other hand, Styles 3100 (Cotton Perfection) and Style 3050 (Bi-blend) offer a snugger/slimmer fit. It’s important to note that these styles have the same length and width, with the only variation being in the shoulder and sleeve dimensions. Looking for the perfect fit? Grab a tape measure and compare your numbers with ours.
No. While our tees are ideal for digital printing/DTG, we do NOT pre-treat our tees.

The size ratio refers to the units ordered by size. A standard size ratio is 1 2 2 1: 1 small, 2 medium, 2 large, and 1 XL. Most brands order in a standard size ratio. Basically, for every 1 tee they purchase in size small, they purchase double that in medium and multiples thereof.
