Do you have time to order a sample now to put your mind at ease?

Do you have a colour chart from Gildan? They have small (about an inch) squares of fabric samples. Sometimes you might want to see a full shirt to really get a sense of the colour, but often that sample is enough. If you don't have one, I'd recommend seeing if your distributor supplies them.

Sorry if this is all too obvious, but it's commonly overlooked.

You have to watch it when the customer calls out just "Teal" for a t-shirt color. Hanes has a teal that is close to what some others call turquoise. About 6 years ago, I had a customer quite angry at me for selling them the Hanes teal color, when they really wanted a color much closer to Jade. We now ask our customers.. Do you want teal blue or teal green?

Good Luck

Do not bid without attaching an actual sample to your bid.....Teal is not an actual colour it is a "guess".....Requests for bids should come with much more specific details as to what is required....Some clients think Fruit or Hanes is a good substitute for Gildan, whereas, other clients will laugh you out of town....

PS....I have a collection of 20+ tees that are all "Royal Blue" and some are as different as night and day....
