What You Need to Know When Ordering Custom Apparel

Dressing your employees in custom apparel is excellent for boosting team morale, camaraderie, and productivity. Even better, customized uniforms can serve as free advertising for your brand. However, you can only experience these benefits if you invest in good-quality custom apparel.

How can I find the best custom apparel provider? When ordering team apparel, you should work with a reputable company that has experience providing the exact type of apparel and design you need. After identifying custom apparel makers that match this description, you can find the best one for your needs by answering these questions:

Who and What Is the Custom Apparel For?

Most custom apparel companies specialize in summer wear, menswear, or accessories like hats and scarves. If you need custom jackets, vests, or similar outfits, look for a custom apparel maker that offers such products. Picking an apparel maker experienced in making the specific clothing you need will increase your chances of getting an impressive product.

For instance, if you buy custom womenswear from a company that primarily makes menswear, the maker may not tailor the product to match the female physique. At Thread Logic, we create custom apparel for men and women of all sizes. You can contact us for everything from summer polos and t-shirts to winter jackets and layering clothing.

We also offer custom embroidered dress shirts, bags, and headwear from reputable clothing brands. Once you tell us who and what you need custom apparel for, we can provide you with tailored solutions that check all your boxes.

When Do You Need Them By?

If you need custom uniforms for your entire team by the end of the week, there’s no point contacting a custom apparel maker with a two-week turnaround time. However, don’t expect miracles like overnight turnaround and delivery. Unreasonable timeframes typically lead to receiving custom garments that are full of errors. That's why you need a reasonable timeframe that gives the custom apparel maker enough time to do your work correctly.

Your timeframe should cover the time needed to make your custom apparel and ship your order. If you want the fastest delivery, work with a close-by company because they can likely deliver your order faster than a foreign company.

At Thread Logic, we offer a standard turnaround time of ten business days, and shipping times vary depending on the customer’s location. If you would like to get your order in less than ten days, you can select Rush Processing during checkout and specify when you would like to receive your order.

What Does "No Minimums" Mean?

When ordering team apparel, verify how many you need. Some apparel makers only accept orders for at least ten items. If you need only two items, you cannot work with such a company. At Thread Logic, our “no minimums” policy allows you to order as few or as many custom embroidered apparels as you need.

However, note that we offer quantity discounts. For instance, if you place an order for custom apparel worth $1,000, you can get a 5% discount. A $2,000 order will attract a 10% discount, while an $8,000 order will get you a 20% discount. You will get a discount even if you have different products in your order, but you must choose the same logo design for all your ordered items.

What's Your Budget?

If you are on a budget, you may think that buying cheap custom apparel is cost-effective, but you’d be wrong. Cheap custom outfits usually feature low-quality materials that do not stand the test of time or provide a good-looking fit. You will need to replace such products often, which will be more expensive in the long run. Even worse, your team will be unenthusiastic about wearing the apparel.

Get good-quality custom apparel that fits your budget by finding a reputable company that can satisfy your needs without exceeding your budget. At Thread Logic, we have various quality apparel options for different budgets. After telling us your budget and goals, our experts can guide you towards the best product for your price range.

What's Your Design? Do You Have It In the Right Format?

Before ordering team apparel, you should know the custom embroidery you want and where you’d like the apparel maker to place the embroidery. You must convey this information to the apparel maker in explicit detail. Otherwise, you could end up with custom apparel that’s a far cry from what you wanted.

At Thread Logic, after receiving your order, we will contact you to verify your preferred logo colors, location, and decoration method. If you need help, our representative can recommend designs.

A few days after receiving your design details, we will email you a digital sample of the design for your approval. If you are unhappy with the design, we will edit it to your satisfaction before commencing production.
