How many units are there per box of tees?
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.
If we have a rush order, what is the ideal way to order?
Full case or even dozens is the most expeditious way for us to process an order.
Why do T-shirt companies prefer even dozens?
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.
Can we get some samples?
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: https://spectrausa.net/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.

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.
