For brands who have a line of basic shirts or those who have their designs printed locally, blank clothing suppliers can allow you to outsource the manufacturing of your range. Blank clothing manufacturers operate all around the world and can either create plain garments with design input for buyers (ODM) or sell already designed products direct (OEM). Many suppliers for blank clothing will have a reputation for quality garment manufacturing and it will be the colours, materials and fit that make their apparel stand out from their competitors.
While suppliers of blank clothing often have a range of set styles for buyers to select from, you may want to create your own design based off your measurements or the local style. If this is the case, you can look for custom clothing suppliers who give the option to work with designers through the sampling stage to make the desired garment. Whether your manufacturer has done custom clothing designs before or not, it is always a good idea to communicate with them to find out if they would be willing to make your custom garment designs come to life.
In order to create custom blank clothing, your supplier may require you to send through either a tech pack including spec sheets for your garments, a sample of the product you want to have manufactured or simply a sketch or picture. The less details you send through, the more sampling may have to occur in order to get the desired result so creating a detailed tech pack is often the best option to reduce cost and confusion between you and your manufacturer.
