Hey guys I’ve been trying to find a list of suppliers of shirts however there doesn’t seem to be an offical post with a listing of one here. So I had an idea. Why not we all work together and compile a list of all the suppliers we know. My idea would work like this: let say you know of “company a” that sells regular tees and sleeveless tees. You would start the list off like this:

  • Company A – www.comapanya.com – regular tees and sleeveless tees (and list as many companies as you know of in much the same way.



Now the next person does the same but instead of just listing what he knows he takes the list from the person above and adds his sources so it would now look like:

  • Company A – www.comapanya.com – regular tees and sleeveless tees (and list as many companies as you know of in much the same way.

  • Company b – www.comapanyb.com – variety of woman tees


If we get a lot of us listing then the last post in here should have a list of over 20 sources. :D

Re: Official Shirt Online Supplier List! Please list your sources

The search feature is very helpful. Doing a search for "wholesale" brings up all sorts of threads where people have discussed who they use.

I'll list the major ones that are constantly brought up on the forums. A lot of these sites have anything you'll need. Most have such a variety of shirts that it would take forever to list their specifics. Visit each site for more details on what they have. Search the forums using the words in bold to see what other people had to say about each.

Actually, since it is very easy to find t-shirt suppliers using Google, Yahoo, or even the t-shirtforums search, I would prefer not to make a "list" here.

I think it would be too tempting for companies to then register for the purposes of posting their link to this thread.

If you have a specific question or need for a supplier, feel free to ask and we'll be happy to help.

I think the list posted by Phil above is a great start for anyone :) A google search for blank t-shirts will bring up dozens and dozens of other suppliers.

I had never really thought about it that way, and had wondered why there wasn't a list.

I still think a list might be really useful, especially for slightly less run of the mill things - children's blanks or international shipping, being two examples that are my "bug bears".

Maybe you could have a Wiki as part of the site, and only certain people can edit it? Would be good not just for a suppliers list, but also for things like "Heat Pressing Basics", "Screenprinting Basics", "Different types of decoration methods", etc.? I don't know, just a thought...

Children's blanks can be found at most wholesalers (like the ones mentioned above). The ones that offer international shipping might be an interesting niche.

Great minds think alike. It's already in the works :)

OK, I should have been more specific there. Most of the kids/infant blanks I have found are just short-sleeve t-shirts or onesies. That's it. Finding l/s t's, onesies or rompers (esp. that will ship here!) is hard. I guess what I'm saying is it seems like it's relatively easy to find suppliers for a wide range styles in adult blanks, but the children's stuff is quite limited. Does that make sense?

does any1 no where 2 get nona-ts or pro clubs
If you do a search of the forum for proclub, you will find a lot of sources and information on urban styled blank t-shirts.

I got some proclub samples from ebay, but a quick search of google for proclub brought up their official website: http://www.proclubinc.com/

Re: Official Shirt Online Supplier List! Please list your sources

Hi,

I am new and came across this site because I am looking for infant and children's blanks and having a tough time. I do not want just a t-shirt. I want something that has lettucing/ruffles on the bottom or ends of the sleeves. Does anyone have a source for this yet? I also want raglands for both girls and boys and wondered if anyone can help me there as well.

Thanks!

I just saw a catalog from Kavio

Looks like some great stuff for kids/babies in there....Im guessing pretty much exactly what you were asking for!

I think S&S Activewear now carries this brand as well...but please dont quote me there!

Re: Official Shirt Online Supplier List! Please list your sources

I have started with a local print shop who purchases the shirts from the manufacturer direct. This was the simplest and quickest way for me to accomplish what I needed. However, I will obviously need to find manufactures I can work with directly to improve my margins moving forward. Are their local manufacturers that are as cost effective for quality t's as foreign? If so, can you suggest a few to contact? Merci

Here's a list of suppliers I got off an article. Also included are their warehouses in different states. Just google the company name if you'd like to visit their websites. I am too lazy/tired to type more.


Bodek and Rhodes (California, Florida, Massachusetts, Michigan, Pennsylvania)

Golden State Tees (California)

Heritage Sportswear (Ohio)

Imprints Wholesale (Colorado, Kansas, Nevada, Ohio, Washington, Wisconsin)

Mission Imprintables (California)

S&S Activewear (Illinois)

Staton Corporate & Casual (California, Florida, Tennessee, Texas)

Virginia T’s (Florida, Indiana, Virginia)


I personally shop at S&S Activewear. Although I live in California, I chose a company in Illinois because they have my kind of shirts. It takes 5 days for me to receive items though. If I want it fast, I go to Sanmar.com cause they have warehouse in Reno, NV and it only takes a day to receive my shirts.
