Updated: May 27
Have you ever wondered how a shirt design goes from just an idea in someone's head to a physical product you can hold in your hands? Well look no further as this week, we are here to explore the entire process by going through the essentials one by one!
You can imagine that the process of designing and manufacturing a shirt involves many steps, and we would like to believe that it can be helpful to understand what goes into bringing a design to life. This is because if one has better, more detailed information about what exactly goes on after you decide to have high-end shirts produced, you can better align your expectations and arrange your business needs in accordance with what we can offer.
Thus, in this post, we'll walk you through the process of turning your shirt design idea into a reality with the help of manufacturers as thanks to our decades of experience within the industry and ability to work with some of the biggest brands in the industry, as well as up-and-coming startups.
Without further ado, here are three key steps we take - from start to finish - to ensure you can secure the shirt you need in a manner that you see fit!
3 Steps We Take to Produce Your Dream Shirt
It all starts with a design, and ends with you holding the shirt you wanted to have produced from the beginning!
Step 1: Design and Development
We all have to know what to produce before we even attempt to do it, right?
The first natural step in producing a shirt is creating the design and we believe that whether you have a clear idea in mind or need help fleshing out your concept, working with a design team can be invaluable. We can help you select the right materials, colors, and finishes to make your design stand out, and once the design is complete, a prototype, or a sample, is made to test the fit and look of the shirt. This will allow us to look out for any necessary adjustments to be made before moving to the next step - which is production.
Step 2: Production
Once the design and prototype are finalized, it's time to move on to production.
This step involves selecting the fabric, cutting it into the correct pattern, and assembling the shirt along with many other avenues such as double checking the entire process up until this point and creating a clear line of communication with stakeholders, including you, to ensure everything is going in accordance with the initial plan. We believe that quality control is a crucial part of the production process, with each shirt being inspected for defects or errors before it is packaged and shipped.
We also take extra steps to ensure that the production process we implement is as sustainable as possible to both ease the minds of our stakeholders, and be aligned with the spirit of the times. This way, we get a chance to offer the best shirt possible with minimal stress on the environment - which is a clear win in our books!

The final step in producing your dream shirt is getting it into your hands. This involves coordinating with various stakeholders, mainly in logistics industries, to oversee that the finished shirts are shipped to your desired location on time. This way, we get a chance to rest assured while your order is on its way and the chance of encountering an unpleasant surprise can be drastically reduced.
