Case Study: RSPCA T-Shirts
The RSPCA is one of the UK's biggest charities. We worked from their brief to design a collection of t-shirts, tops and accessories and presented a collection for Christmas 2014.
The RSPCA had specialist requirements for the cut of their shirts and IT integration: We designed and manufactured a bulk order of t-shirts and delivered a custom database integration (sFTP) build by our in-house IT team.
We contributed data-mining and forecasts to their buying team to structure the PO and manufactured the t-shirts, bagged barcoded and individually wrapped according to their warehouse specifications.
The t-shirts were sampled, approved and the final order shipped by container - landing a week ahead of schedule direct to warehouse.
Why Choose Us?
The factory was built to meet the highest quality and sustainability expectations of Rapanui, an award-winning fashion brand that established a supply chain and diversified into manufacturing. Because of this unique position, we understand the link between brand and manufacturer more than most. If you want a capable B2B supplier that understands you, we get it.
If you have a substantial requirement from 5000 - 200’000 garments, production will be direct from our overseas supply chain. Due to shipping and customs, very large volume orders take on average 10 weeks from PO to warehouse. Normal screen printed orders under 5000 units can be turned around within a week printed from our UK stock at our Isle of Wight printing factory, depending on volume and availability. Small volume DTG samples, from 1-50 items, can be designed and ordered online without any setup costs and we can print the same day for next day postage.
