We have the ability to fulfill orders of any size, and do not have any specific quantity requirements. However, the production process incurs setup costs, which can make orders under 200 units more expensive. Additionally, we rely on our suppliers for raw materials such as fabric and trimmings, and their availability and delivery times can impact our ability to fulfill smaller orders.
The production process for your garment, whether it involves manufacturing, screen printing, or embroidery, incurs a setup cost to prepare the item. To clarify, when screen printing a garment, we must first confirm that the digital file is ready for printing and that the colour layers have been correctly separated. Following this, we create film positives, which are used to expose the design onto light-sensitive mesh screens. The ink passes through the screens during the printing process. Usually, the setup cost is a one-time payment because the initial preparation is complete and does not need to be repeated.
The amount of time it takes for us to produce a garment depends on how quickly we can obtain the necessary fabric and the size of the order. We usually have a stock of basic colours available, but it can take up to 8 weeks for some fabrics to become available. Smaller orders can be completed more quickly and delivered within 4 weeks of sample approval. We can also work to meet your deadlines and optimize our procedures for faster turnaround times. Our status as a complete clothing company allows for a more rapid and efficient order process since everything is handled in-house.
Most of our fabrics are procured locally in order to support the South African textile industry. We do occasionally import fabrics, but only when they are unavailable due to production limitations within the country. We work closely with our suppliers to acquire a range of colours, designs, washes, and effects, and ensure that the level of quality and detail is up to par. Our standard stock fabrics include 145gsm and 160gsm single jersey made of combed and carded 100% cotton or polycotton blends for mélanges, slubs, and other variations.
Adobe Photoshop (.psd) files are preferable, but we also accept (.png) and Illustrator (.ai) files. All non-vector (pixel) files need to be at least 300dpi. All font layers need to be rasterized or converted to outlines. All backgrounds or colours that you do not want to print need to be clearly labelled.
