Size Breakdown for Apparel Orders

You’ve been collaborating with us on your amazing design and are finally ready to send in the sizes! But how do you know what sizes will sell and how many of each you should order?

We've got you covered.

We’ve included a recommended size breakdown below and separated our products into 3 easy categories that will help determine if you should use a standard size breakdown, include a few larger sizes, or if pre-sales are the best way to go!

1% X-Small • 10% Small • 20% Medium • 30% Large • 25% XL • 12% XXL • 2% XXXL

Note: X-Small is not available in all styles so we often sub Youth Large instead. Also, if you're ordering for all teens instead of parents, maybe shift your percentages down a bit to fit the smaller teens. After all, we don't earn those extra layers until the later years.

CORE Brands such as Gildan, Hanes and Anvil are great for all body shapes and what our recommended size breakdown is based on. The fit is basic and unisex. Not too tight, not too loose and are considered "true to size".

FASHION Brands such as Bella + Canvas, Next Level and Alternative are perfect for when you want something a little nicer for your crew.  They’re softer and tend to be slightly more fitted than the core brands. Because they're a more fashion forward fit, we recommend adding a few larger sizes into the mix. 

PREMIUM Brands such as Adidas, Columbia and Nike are generally ordered for smaller, specialty orders. Almost exclusively ordered in men’s or women’s sizes, rather than unisex, the shape and fit tend to be specialized to your sport, such as golf polos, fishing shirts and performance pullovers.  For premium brands, we recommend pre-selling using our size charts located below each item to get the exact fit you're needing. 


Size charts are listed below the style description to help get a better idea of how the product fits.

Keep in mind that ladies cut tees will always have a smaller fit than unisex.
