How many products do you need?
Bulk T-Shirt Manufacturing
Orders of 1-5000 products
If you're looking to order less than 25 garments at a time, then our Online Shop is where you need to head.
We have over 17,000+ product options available, the vast majority of which can be custom printed or embroidered. We’re renowned as organic T-shirt manufacturers and hold the most comprehensive range of sustainable and organic wholesale clothing in Europe.
If you can't find what you need or are looking to place an order of 25-5000 products, you can request a quote for custom T-shirts.
Where small production runs are required, off-the-shelf products like those found in our Online shop are generally the best option. This is an option used by small and large brands alike, as it helps to minimise the need for huge order volumes that are only really suitable for extremely large orders.
White label T-shirt manufacture for brands
If you require relabelling or other finishing touches on your order, to achieve that bespoke feel, then head over to our T-shirt relabelling page to see the available options.
We don't offer label removal or woven labels. However, we appreciate as a brand you may not wish to have manufacturers labels on your products, therefore we do have a few options that may be suitable. You'll find them among other handy tips in our quick Starting a T-shirt Brand Guide.
If woven labels are essential we'd suggest buying your products and decoration with us and using a relabelling company, so you can ensure you comply with the legal requirements associated with relabelling. If you’re considering relabelling we’d recommend reading more on the legal requirements for relabelling.
Commercial T-shirt manufacturing - Orders of 5000+ products
If you are looking for a large quantity of bespoke-manufactured clothing products (including T-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies) (5000+), made to your exact specification, please get in touch.
Whether you are looking for your own garment made from scratch, or to add or alter one of our existing products, we have you covered.
We can also provide commercial T-shirt printing onto one of our pre-made garments, which also creates a great look and feel.
We have the flexibility to deal with orders large and small. Our factories can process up to 30,000 garments per day.
Looking for a sustainable T-shirt manufacturer?
We aren’t working towards sustainability; our business is built on it. Unlike many, “going green” has never been a marketing campaign for us, a polished policy statement, or just a set of nicely curated pages. It’s in our DNA.
Since our formation in 2012, we’ve been pioneers of change. We were the first print & embroidery company in the UK to introduce Neutral® Fairtrade Clothing, products manufactured according to the highest social, ethical and environmental standards in the world. We now supply these products to some of the biggest brands in the world, for uniform, merchandise and retail.
In 2013 we went on to supply the first-ever commercially produced T-shirts and sweatshirts made from recycled organic cotton and polyester. Since then, recycled products have hit the mainstream and are now being manufactured at unprecedented levels.
These are just two of the many pivotal moments we’ve led the drive to sustainability in our industry. We continue to push for innovation and share best practice, helping our customers to lead the way when it comes to sustainability. This is one of the many things that have led us to be regarded by many publications, as one of the best custom clothing manufacturers in the UK.
Industry Leading Quality.
When it comes to the quality of custom T-shirt suppliers, it’s often dependent on more than just the garment itself.
Quality is often dependent on technology, inks, and threads. That’s not to mention the skills of the people behind the scenes making it all happen and ensuring everything is as it needs to be.
This is why we use some of the leading print and embroidery technology available in Europe, ensuring unrivalled precision and quality. Our flexible and innovative supply chain allows for no minimum order and huge capacity, with fast turnaround times.
For context, you can quite easily pick up a cheap printing machine for a couple of hundred pounds or less; ours are worth hundreds of thousands of pounds each.
While we’re likely not the cheapest T-shirt printing manufacturers out there, when you place your order with us, you can rest assured that through our unrivalled investment in quality, you’re getting the best machines, inks, threads and people for the job.
We’ve been regarded by Digital Arts Magazine as one of the “Best places for T-shirt printing“ & by Forbes Magazine as "The go-to supplier for ethical and environmentally sound custom clothing & branded uniforms."

Frequently Asked Questions about bulk T-shirt manufacturing
For most brands, off-the-shelf products are the perfect solution. We define off-the-shelf products as those which have already been pre-made and can be purchased wholesale through us (via our online shop or a quote). You can then customise them with your own design, logo, or text.
This is usually the most cost-effective option even on bulk quantities. You can customise these with print or embroidery no matter how big or small your order is.
Off-the-shelf products also come with much faster turnaround times. For bespoke production you’re looking at lead times of at least 14-21 weeks for sampling and production - this is why large established brands plan product ranges years in advance.
When purchasing off-the-shelf products, turnaround times are MUCH faster, with lead times closer to 14-21 working days or less.
We’ve got a number of T-shirts that come with minimal or no manufacturer branding inside, making them a perfect option for your brand. You can read more about this in our Starting a T-shirt Brand Guide.

If ordering in bulk, prices can be as low as £2.24 per product. Prices are a little bit higher on totally bespoke products compared to our off-the-shelf products, so for the best price, we’d recommend one of our off-the-shelf options.

Us, obviously! Arguably we’re a little biased, however, we’ve been regarded by Digital Arts Magazine as one of the “Best places for T-shirt printing“ & by Forbes Magazine as "The go-to supplier for ethical and environmentally sound custom clothing & branded uniforms." So we’re not the only ones who think so!
If you’re still not convinced, check out some of our case studies, where you’ll find some of the awesome work we’ve done for some amazing brands.
Having invested millions in our machines and supply chains, we like to think we’re one of the best T-shirt printing companies in the UK. This has resulted in a client base that stretches across the globe, some of which you’ll find in our case studies.

With thousands of happy customers, we’re absolutely certain we can deliver products that meet and exceed your expectations.
Brands, now more than ever need, to be committed to genuine ethical practice and sustainability throughout their supply chain from the raw materials to the finished product.
However, with a myriad of eco and ethical certifications that are hard to understand and greenwashing rife in every industry, we’ve put together a guide for sustainable clothing manufacturing, to help you navigate the confusing landscape.
Yes, we do! We stock Fairtrade Organic T-shirts and clothing, as well as a wide range of Organic T-shirts that are ethically sourced. All of our products are certified by third parties like the Fairtrade Foundation and the Fair Wear Foundation, ensuring that our standards are your guarantees of sustainable ethical manufacture.
When it comes to sustainability, organic cotton T-shirts come up on top. While recycled options are trendy, they’re not always as good as they may appear, something we’ve covered in greater detail in our article about Organic Cotton Vs Recycled Polyester.
If you’re looking for the gold standard, our Fairtrade Organic T-shirts are certified to the highest ethical standards in the world, making them the perfect option for eco-conscious brands. Moreover, these aren’t just the gold standard for ethics and sustainability, but also for quality, with supreme softness and durability.
In some respects, quality can be quite subjective. For example, some may feel that a heavyweight T-shirt is of higher quality than a lighter weight equivalent, even if the fabric is as durable. Others may feel a super soft organic T-shirt is better quality than a conventional cotton alternative.
So often, the key to finding the best quality for you is to ask yourself by what metrics are you defining quality, as then you’ll know what to look or ask for. This is particularly pertinent with a company like A.M. Custom Clothing, where all of our product ranges are retail quality and designed to last.
When it comes to printing and embroidery, quality is a little less subjective. If a print peels off or ends up disintegrating after a few washes, it’s clearly not high quality. Whether this happens or not is very much down to the quality of the materials/inks/threads, the machines, and the people involved in the decoration process.
We use some of the highest grade inks and Madeira threads (the gold standard for our industry), our machines are among the best in Europe, and our team are industry veterans. With these bases covered we deliver print and embroidery that is of exceptional quality.
All of our printing, embroidery and finishing is done here in the UK. We have a number of production facilities across the UK in cities such as Manchester, London, Liverpool, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds and Southampton to name a few. Our network of production facilities allows us to deliver anywhere in the UK or the rest of the world, whatever quantity you require.
If you’re looking for T-shirts that have been completely made in the UK, you may find our article T-shirts Made In The UK – What Does It Really Mean? helpful in understanding our supply chain.

We operate both across the UK and internationally, allowing us to provide you with the same amazing service and products no matter where in the world you are. This is one of the reasons we’re regarded as one of the best clothing manufacturers in the UK.
