    Private Label Division
    If you don't find what you're looking for in our online catalog, you may want to consider placing a private label order. Since we do all of our manufacturing in-house, we have a lot of flexibility when it comes to custom orders, including the ability to use custom patterns, stitching, colors, and fabrics. Your custom products can be based on one of our existing products, or we can design something specifically for you.
    Samples
    With each private label order, you will receive a sample before we start full production. We will not begin production until you are completely satisfied with, and have approved, your sample.
    Turnaround Time
    We measure our turnaround time in days and weeks, not months. You will typically receive your sample 7-10 days business after placing your order, and your complete order 2-4 weeks after approving your sample.
    Private Label Orders
    We can sew private labels into any of our products, or any custom product you work with us to produce. We do request that labels have a 3/8" bleed so your logo doesn't get cut off in production. The minimums for a private label order will be based on the style being ordered. Each style/fabric will have different minimums. The average minimum for a custom order will be between 600-1,200 pieces per style, 200 per size.
    Minimum Order Size
    When placing a cut and sew order minimums will be based on the style being ordered. Each style/fabric will have different minimums. The average minimum for a custom order will be between 600-1,200 pieces per style, 200 per size. Please note that American Apparel is not a general contractor and will only produce styles that require basic sewing construction.
    Custom Colors
    We can produce any style in virtually any color - all we need is a fabric swatch or Pantone™ swatch. You will typically receive your lab dip sample 1-2 weeks after placing your order, and your final production fabric two weeks after approving your sample. When ordering a custom color we require the customer to order in full lots and the customer is required to consume everything that is produced form the fabric. American Apparel will not store any custom fabric.
